Hello again! Long time no see!!
In my last post (ages ago) I promised some harlies would be painted up rather soon. Unfortunately, they are still looking at me mostly unpainted from my paint desk. I just can't bring myself to paint them up, the diamonds pattern is looking very daunting at the moment, although I have seen some very interesting styles on a quick Images search. I quite like the look of a monochrome style with brightly coloured features. Maybe I'll get them done some time in the future!!
Anyway, this is my first post since the update of the new Eldar, and suffice to say despite my evident procrastination I have made some headway.
Foremost amoungst these is my Autarch on Jetbike with Mantle (though in this case 'Flag') of the Laughing God. You may have seen my earlier post about him (https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...d.php?t=125760
), but he is now nearing completion. Hopefully some pics of him in the near future.
Otherwise a lot of tinkering really. I've re-kitted my Wraithlords with dual Bright Lance, I particularly like the one with the Wraithknight style pose.
I've also added a few more bodies to the force. 10 Guardian fill out my troops section, while some Swooping Hawks add a little more colour variation. I've not yet got around to a Weapon Platform for the Guardian though. Again, hopefully some time soon.
And finally I've re-painted on of my Wave Serpents. This one gives me a few more options in terms of housing Wraithguard, Guardian and Avengers.
And that just leaves me with what's coming next. Currently, I'm re-painting my old (I use the word in the loosest of terms!!) Saim-Hann force to be included in my Iyanden force. I did try to make them separate, but I've realised that making Iyanden viable by themselves is a tricky thing. So basically I'm making my life easier and wrapping it all in together.
So left to re-paint are a second Serpent, Fire Prism, Farseer w/ Warlock Council and Windriders. I'm thinking of painting the Bikes in the same style as the Serpent and using the yellow for the riders, but I'm still undecided. I am waiting on a few Guardian parts too to use in the tradition conversion for my Windriders to make them a little easier on the eye!
Beyond that, my plan is to invest in a single Crimson Hunter and then that will probably be that for this army. So the end is now in sight! After that, I'm thinking of starting up some Lizardmen to reignite my Fantasy gaming. I've got the book on order now...so that'll be fun!
So sorry for the shoddy camera work, only have a phone to do it on. I'll try to get the lighting right next time!
As always I'd love to hear your thoughts, and hopefully it's not too long until the next one!!
Anyone know how to change the main title of the thread? Not sure '1000pts' quite fits anymore!!
