Hey /tg/!

I'm working on a costume design for a female archon but I'm having trouble finding art for any. If you have any, please share! I need a little more inspiration before I can bring this costume to life! (If no female the please post male!)

Other than that: DE general!

>> No.24008765

Male dark eldar have a harder time advancing amongst the wych cults since the audience wants the most graceful murderers. Thus it's almost only women who make it to the rank of succubus.

In the kabals on the other hand there are no ideals working for or against either sex. Success there hinges on talent for intrigue, backstabbing, betrayal and paranoid tendencies.

you could go Hesperax and put some barbs at the end on your hair.
Archons by default come equipped with Kabalite armour, a Close combat weapon, a Splinter pistol, & Plasma grenades.

Really and spiky blade-like weapon will work for the close combat weapon.
The grenades, if you want to go with them, could be made from any round object with some ingenuity and paint behind it.
The pistol is a bit tougher

Sadly, most of the other female DE pictures I have are already posted, and I need to vanish off briefly. I'll be back in ~45 minutes or so and dump guys, if that's of use.

I think the main thing to keep in mind regarding an Archon's costume is it's not likely to be terribly different, in terms of basic shape and structure, from the armour worn by a rank-and-file Kabalite. It'll just be far more elaborate and detailed and coupled with things like cloaks, banners, trophy-racks and elaborate helmet crests.

And yes, that is some fantastic hair. If it's one thing the DE can be relied upon, it's having some truely breathtaking topknots on display.

>> No.24016429

You might want to try a read of the Path of the Renegade by Gav Thorpe on Dark Elf and their culture. They have a Wych Archon or whatever and a lady Archon with a fairly well laid out description. Also, try to be as non human as possible, some of these pics tend to potray them as fucking night elves, instead they have almond eyes turnes upward like an alien, no meat on bones, very lithe and chin is always sharp as a blade.

On the subject of female Archons; my Archon on the table top is female, put together using diving Scourge legs, a female warrior breastplate, a power sword from the wych box, a venom blade from the warrior box, as well as a Sybarite helmet and a Corsair cloak. And she looks completely badass. I guess what I'm saying is make the armor a male Archon would use and give it boobs.

No, I never actually said that. I said "everyONE on /tg/ is a better writer than Goto," and I wasn't being absolutely literal; I was making a hyperbolic joke. If you're going to quibble about semantics, do it right.

Also, LCB never took itself seriously. It was always lighthearted romantic satire, and never pretended to be anything else (and was never actually published). Therefore, in terms of lighthearted romantic satire, it was fair to middling. C.S. Goto's entire body of work in the 40K setting is just pretentious, badly-written shit from end to end, full of purple prose and general failure. It didn't deserve to be published, but was anyway because people like you will fork over their cash for anything GW puts out because they don't have the brains to make sound judgments about quality.

FFG, when they go find new illustrators, pay hacks to do the job, and when they do come upon a few good illustrators who don't charge more than others, instead of only commissioning these, they also commission at least as much stuff to the bad illustrators, and the art director never corrects them.

I'm almost positive that's a requirement set upon them by Games Workshop, who are ridiculously possessive of their IP and also greedy as fuck. It's clearly their intention to maintain the connection back to the tabletop game to give 40K players something to recognize and make newcomers curious enough to go check it out.

Also, I'm curious as to how you associate the unfortunate choices of the art department with the taste of the entire developing staff. That seems like apples and oranges to me.

At first I was going to ignore this but, if you are going to try and troll me, please allow me to clear the air about it.

Calling me heavy actually isn't an insult to me. Ever. I've been ill for the past few years and became sickly thin. Recently I've been gaining weight again to look normal. I'm actually flattered if you think I've gotten some curves.

In all honesty, you can't call me something that I haven't been called before. Just like all of you, I was awkward and tormented all throughout my schooling career. I call /tg/ my peeps for a reason.

I may be a costume model now, but that doesn't mean I'm not still one of the geeks. I don't even show much skin. (I decide to do an archon instead of a wych because I wanted to be seen for my work and not my tits) If I get attention at cons (or even here on /tg/), it's because I've bleed to make a killer costume, not because I'm showing my tits.

Some people make minis, I make costumes. I'm not going to be scared off any more by 'chubby attention whore' than by tabletop players getting 'never paint again'.

You can call me names and troll all you want. I'm going to keep smirking and shaking my head just like I have been for the last two years. I'm not going anywhere. Like anon said in another thread. 'You never leave /tg/'.

tl;dr : Trolling me is pointless. Go ahead if you like, but it doesn't make any difference to me.

Oh man, I couldn't breath I was laughing so hard! You truly don't understand how ideas work do you? Let me spell it out for you.

When an artist or group of artists creates a work (be it a painting, novel, song, or in this case entire Science-Fantasy universe) and releases it for other people to consume, the creators fundamentally lose control over it. Rather, they lose control over the Definition of what it is. Many artists are well aware of this, hence all the references to "Letting their baby go", etc.

Other people will come along, and add/subtract/divide everything about it, and (if it's a popular idea) spend far more time doing so than was ever put into it in the first place. I tend to think of it like a pearl growing around a grain of sand. Or evolution of a species. Over time, a popular idea will gain far more additions than was ever present at it's conception.

These additions eventually become so large, that they eclipse the original idea completely. It becomes possible for someone to get deeply involved with the idea, consume it ravenously, and never come across any of the concepts that originally spawned it. But importantly, still be able to discuss the idea with others and it be recognised what they're talking about. Just because the Idea has grown far larger than any one person, does not mean it loses the label assigned to it.

>> No.24021760

For a no-40k example: I'm Protestant. I can't tell a Mormon or a Catholic that they aren't Christian. They claim to follow the teachings of Jesus, but we differ fundamentally on what those teachings are, and how to implement them. I may well feel some of their beliefs are staggeringly wrong. But I do not magically gain ownership over the word "Christian". If they want to call themselves Christian and I feel blacken the name a little in some cases THIS IS OK.

No-one has an outside viewpoint. No-one can truly decide what is or isn't part of any particular idea-space. You just have to let them evolve. And if you don't like what they're turning into? Leave. Splinter off. Rename yourselves and go make something better. After all, it worked out pretty well for the Mormons.
