In all seriousness though thanks for that. It means a lot.
Pictured below is my finished Quad Gun. It's alright. It was quite fun though to work on something related to the project but distinctly different.
It also got me thinking, what's the point in having a Defence Line and Quad Gun with no one to actually use it?! So, I've come up with the solution! I found a couple of weeks ago some Dire Avengers in my other Eldar collection. I've never used them, and they were completely unpainted. Naturally, I thought: Great!
So there they are all painted up. I've inverted the colour scheme which worked well. It still gives them a Dire Avenger blue while tying them into the army nicely. I have noticed in hindsight that it's actually Alaitoc-ish...but what the hell! The Exarch too has no helmet. Instead used a High Elf head to tie him in a bit with the Farseer.
Who said Dire Avengers can't take a weapon platform too?!?
Still no sign of my Wraithguard or Pathfinders. The Pathfinders should arrive in the next few days, but I have no idea what's up with the Wraithguard. I guess that's what you get when you shop around on eBay!!
And finally the Defence Line. I've got a little bit of progress on that. I've cut 6 large flying bases (the 6cm diameter ones). In all it gives me 12 semi-circular sections as pictured in an above post, giving a total length of roughly 27", just shy of the 28" of the shop bought Aegis Defence Line. They can be arranges too so that there are 4 sections of 2 together to make one larger one, and then 4 smaller sections which are composed of a single section. (I hope you follow!!)
I've got some Polystyrene balls too (also eBay...when will I learn!!) so I'll get them done soon. I tried out some wire for the outer edge of the field, but it didn't work; it's so tricky to get anything to stick to such a small rim. Any suggestions? There is always the possibility of not having anything I suppose.
