The Awakening by thevampiredio The Awakening by thevampiredio
Summoned by that battlecry the Exarchs gather at the gates of the Avatar's throne room. They bring the Young King, an Aspect Warrior chosen by the Farseers, who stands naked and painted with the blood runes of Kaela Mensha Khaine.
In his right hand they place the Suin Daellae - the weapon of the Avatar, whose Eldar name means the Wailing Doom. In her left hand they place the Cup of Criel, the cup brimming with her own blood. A long chant is begun whilst from within the god's chamber comes the enraged crackling of burning metal and raging furnace.

As the ceremony grows more intense so the Bloody-handed God stirs into life
Into the throne room the Young King walks to her destruction, and the bronze gate closes behind her.
For several hours the furnace rumbles and booms...
At last there is an inhuman roar of agony and a psychic shock wave blows apart the bronze door of the Avatar's shrine. Amidst the torrent of power the Avatar walks from his throne into the Craftworld.

As to the fate of the Young King not even the Farseers will speak....D:

Increadible picture! And yeah, it was stated in canon that the Young King can be of either sex, although many forget about it.

I cannot help but wonder. Are there any fanart or depictions of the Eldar Goddess Isha? It seems depictions of her are notably lacking despite her being important in the Eldar Storyline.

On a positive note, the lack of artwork for the goddess gives you the opportunity to the artwork on your own terms and preferences.

What is this I am feeling? Empathy? B-but I'm a follower of the chaos gods, why do I feel empathy for such a xeno like this?


Now I understand why, her devotion to her gods, her sacrifice for a gasp of survival for their race, it makes me feel as if I watched one of my battle brothers.


Now going outta the typical chaos character: When there's an avatar to fight against my Daemon Prince on the field, is when I know that the battle will be deserving of pop corn (and tactical attention to over where is it going to strike). Hell, sometimes the eldar look even more badass than my Chaos Space Marines, and their history is really interesting, the greatest civillization in a dark galaxy, almost driven to extintion by their own sins.

All that work and sacrifice only to get fisted by The Big Papa Smurf. Sometimes canon makes me die a bit on the insides.
