Harlequin Wraithlord by NPlusPlus Harlequin Wraithlord by NPlusPlus
Here is my entry into the 2010 North American Golden Demon competition. It didn't win, but it did make the First Cut, so that's exciting!

After hundreds of hours of work, it's completed. This came together after I got ahold of a classic Harlequin Jetbike front and pictured it on the new Eldar Wraithlord body.

There are way too many diamonds on this.. I'm tired of diamonds. There are 626 diamonds.. ugh.

love this how did you get the water to look like that

Inspirational work and yes all eldar including halies use them the solitare is the only harlie aside from exodites who can get away with not wearing one because his soul is destined to be fought over by the laughting god and slanish in person =)

Thanks muchly. The water was created by layering Heavy Gel over and over again in thin layers, with light highlights and/or washes of colour (blue) or white in between each layer. The transparency adds up to create a realistic effect.

Excellant piece! The time and effort you put in really shows. Fluffwise it's a bit shakey (the harlequins don't use spiritstones, do they? Because Cegorach whisks thier soul away on death. So what is inside the wraitbone?) but it looks excellant and fits in with the rest of the army.
A wraitlord with facial features is surprisingly intimidating. The only thing I'd change would be adding a bit more damage to the dreadnaught and detail to the base because, as people below have mentioned it's a bit confusing at first sight. I personally thought the lord had power weapon'd/melta'd off the dreadnaught's legs and leapt on top to leap at the next target (imagine flip-belt equipped wraitlords! Good thing they're not in the codex).
Very stunning, you should be proud.
What are the shoulder mounted guns? Starcannon and brightlance?

Not sure about the spirit stones.. you could be right, but I thought it was just one specific type of Harlie that dooms himself. I gotta agree about the damage to the dread.. Initially I liked him perched on top, but something showing the feet crushed in to the armour more to pull it together might have been a decent idea. Wraithlords w/ the belts would be fantastic, lol!

Thanks for the great feedback! I believe the weapons were Starcannon and Scatter Laser.
