Started on some possible mood boards + 'mission briefs' for the sculptor who might be making some more Eloi units. Do you guys have any suggestions on the aesthetics, poses, etc?

Aside from the aforementioned organic aesthetic I would just say keep it elegant and simple. Remember the scale we're working with!

Although the organic theme is quite interesting, I still think there can be a place in the 6 mm world for the swept-forwards, relatively clean design epitomised by that well-known game workshop's design for floating armoured vehicles. Whether or not that place is the Eloi is a different question, of course!

I quite like the look of this impressive reconstruction of the Batwing from the Lego Batman movie (Brickmasta is also an excellent builder of other things!):

https://www.flickr.com/photos/brickmasta/13973416094/

which I think shows how the swept-wing design can be interpreted in an intellectually novel fashion. I particularly like the wings and their spars but would probably favour reconfiguring the engines and weapons a bit and, of course, potentially close the cockpit off with a top turret.



Anyway, some food for thought,
Thinking Stone

That kinda reminds me of the DZC Shaltari vehicles

Speaking of DZC - their scourge mb tanks have always seemed like slaneshi-eldar falcons to me...

I hadn't seen the DZC Scourge tanks before! I agree about them resembling what I imagine twisted Eldar tanks to look like.... I'm actually a bit surprised (now I think about it) that people haven't really explored Chaos Eldar with Epic!

While the DZC Shaltari vehicles are certainly interesting as their own idea, the Batwing/GW Falcon wing shape is the most iconic part for me (personally). It seems that some designs come close but I've not yet found a 6 mm equivalent post-Games Workshop. In a way, the Batwing paves the way for that kind of wing shape in other, unique designs.

I like this one a lot, even if the aesthetic may not be what we're going for, the structure is very cool!!!

Interesting stuff but it dosen't fit in with the current aesthetic these would reuire a completely different direction for all Eloi vehicles which i'm not sure would be accepted by the community.

Given the amount of forward swept things on display here, i think it is safe to assume that certain parties could claim all encompassing copyright only in their own limited imaginations.

I do too. Actually I liked the soldiers, firearms, and buildings (military and civilian) on Helian Prime from Chronicles of Riddick, where that's from, as well. Meaning I'd love to see SciFi Ottoman empire guys. No foolies I'dbuy the F out of them. Not sure is that aesthetic is right for eloi but I could totally see a grim dark version of those ornithopers. They'd be pretty boss.
