Decent of Plasma - Inceptors!

Hey hey hey,

You've already had a quick look at these guys in the No Retreat application post, but here are a few more shots of them. I changed the way I painted the plasma for these and ideally, I'd like to change up all the existing plasma to match. I'm not sure how much hassle that is going to be though to be honest. 

I really need to crack on with the all my Inceptors and the jump pack HQ choices and get the glow of the engines done. I feel I should wait till I have added battle damage though as the glow will obviously go over that. So I think these will be first in line for a micro-sol/set session and sponge chipping!

Peace out,

Heidelbrach - Ancient of the Sons of Wrath

Hey hey hey,

Been a while since you first saw this guy. He had some bendy treatment on the old flag (Cheers Siph!) and is currently about 90% painted, still plenty to go on his flag in terms of highlights and the like, but getting there. Like all The Sons of Wrath he will need decals and battle damage adding after that mind.

Quite pleased with the look of the banner at the moment, just a shame it is pointing down :P...

Peace out,

The Aeldari Cometh!!

Hey hey hey,

So for those of you that are kind enough to read my blog with any regularity over the past 3 years, you'll remember that about a year ago or so (maybe a little more) I started putting together an Eldar/Aeldari army. Well that obviously went a little quiet with the release of 8th and getting stuck in with my Primaris army The Sons of Wrath, as well as rattling out Deathwing, Ravenwing and Deathguard to boot (Oh to be a butterfly).

Well, welly well well well! They return, with vengeance from a time long since past. I have actually been steadily accruing and building units here and there. The army is very much based around Wraith Constructs, and will as such be utilising the Iyanden craftworld trait. Here's a break down of what we have so far:



Wave Serpent 1:

Wraithlord 1:

Wraithlord 2:


I still need to purchase another Wave Serpent as well as 2 x Spiritseers and 15 x Rangers! If anyone wants to part with the older metal rangers for a reasonable price do let me know... I probably only actually need 1 x Spiritseer now due to the points cost increase in the recent FAQ, but I haven't yet checked that out. 

These guys are going to be painted in this scheme:

Which is actually pretty simple to do, I just need to clear real life plate business and sit down for a weekend to make tracks really. 

Peace out,

Armiger Knight Estratus of Forgeworld Brakhus-Alpha

Hey hey hey,

So I am deep in my thesis writing, hence the lack of anything on here! But it is going well, and fingers crossed I will be submitted in a couple of months or so. Then I will sleep again! So, so tired...

Anyway, in my little spare time I have had, work has progressed on chipping paint and I finally had the courage to apply it to one of my brand new Armiger miniatures which was the whole point of the practise exercises. 

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how this came out. I have 3 more to paint in a similar style and I am confident that the execution should improve as I go along. In terms of bases, they will be having swamp styled bases that means I have to do some further practise with water effects, to create ankle deep water for at least a couple of the bases. So expect to see some practise work at some point.

With the final knight I was considering making a tutorial for how I did all of the painting and chipped/rust effects. But only if people would find that helpful, as lord above it slows down painting to take pictures of every (of the many many  many) stages. 

Would that be useful?

I still want to get some black weathering powder to apply to the ends of the melta weapons, but I haven't been able to make it to the hobby shop that sells it in town recently. 

Back to Deathguard after this Sojourn and then onto... Aeldari!

Peace out,
