Week 47 part 2 - Eldar Falcon




Finished an Eldar Falcon yesterday, this is my second for the army now. Weapons and turret magnetized as always for ease of transport and weapon-swapping. I also finally bought strong enough magnets to make magnetized flying bases for all my vehicles so I've also included a pic of what that looks like, for anyone curious. It's such a godsend to have the vehicles on magnet bases, the pinhole bases GW provides standard are completely inadequate. The metal adds nice weight to the models as well, makes it a real pleasure to pick them up when moving them.

Hope you guys like the Falcon, it's the same scheme you've seen before. I really hope GW finally makes these guys "dedicated transports" in any new edition of 40k as I love fielding them but it's really painful to spend a heavy support slot to get them.

Week 47 - Stone Scribe Chronicler


Got my Stone Scribe painted up today, he's a support solo for the Trollbloods army. Haven't put anything on his scroll yet, debating whether to freehand it or try some kind of transfers, I might even just leave him as it is.

Standard skin of dark blue paint, light blue drybrush, lighter blue drybrush, finished with watered down blue ink. I'm trying to get motivated to finish a huge Dire Troll next, we'll see how things go...

Week 45 - Eldar minis: Yriel & custom Jetbike Autarch

Two Eldar autarchs for you today, the first one is the special character Yriel, carrying the Spear of Twilight. The second is my converted Autarch on jetbike with a laser lance and built-in melta gun. I've had the Yriel model probably for almost two years now, built and unpainted and I don't know what got into me but I finally threw down and painted the guy. I'm extremely happy with how Yriel turned out, not quite as happy with the custom Autarch but he'll do. Hope you guys like them!

Week 44 - More Eldar Guardians



Slashed and burned my way through 20 more Eldar Guardian Defenders, including another weapon platform + crew. Done in my primed white + GW red ink + painted highlights style as my previous 20 guardians. Second photo shows the whole swarm of 40 + magnetized weapon platforms together, gotta find a Spearhead game where I can field them all together as a raging mob of grenadin', melee-failin' mooks, ha ha.
