I have just purchased Dirtside II and thought I would give a shot at
translating Epic Eldar to this wonderful system.  

Any comments or "constructive" critisism would be appreciated.  I
should have the vehicles done in the next day or so and will post them

NOTE:  Some of the points had to be decided on an arbitrary basis as I
was not sure how to classify some of the special abilities.
