To keep the army in theme, I obviously had to have a spiritseer, but I also decided to get myself a wraithseer, just because the model is cool and they can have a mahoosive gun!! The spiritseer's spiritmark ability will gel nicely with the wraithblades, making them even tastier in combat and will also have Empower/Enervate to help the wounds rolls as well.
In an ideal world I would have liked to have spent a lot more time on the spiritseer's robes, but I'm happy enough that it will look OK on the tabletop, which was after all the point of painting these so quickly. I am really looking forward to my first game with this army which should be soon!
I'm a huge fan of watching battle reports whilst I paint, I love that immersion into the hobby, surrounding myself with the narrative and tactics of the game that I love - 40k. If you love that too, then I am sure that Winters SEO and Moarhammer are unlikely to be new names to you.
But recently these to lovely fellas have joined (unholy) forces to produce a collaborative effort to bring more wonderful battle reports to our screens. Both of these chaps have the narrative joy of the game nailed down, as well as dabbling in the warpcraft that is more competitive play as well.
We are talking beautiful terrain, beautiful armies, and epic narration of the clash of fists and fury. Not just that but a wonderful discussion of the hobby at large, behind the scenes discussion as well as tips, tactics and painting advice.
I cannot recommend these guys enough, and I will be jumping on board and supporting them with my hard earned cash to help make it a success :) If you fancy supporting them as well, then on JUNE 1st 2018 Deployment Zone TV will go live. You can find this through the following site address:
Not a functioning link obviously as it isn't live yet, but please do check out the video above, check out Winters SEO and Moarhammer on youtube. Like and subscribe if it's your kind of things and give Deployment Zone a go.
Having grown sick of having miniatures lying around being unbuilt and unpainted and ultimately unplayed, I decided to suck up my normal methods and just paint an army to a basic table top standard and take it to town for games! So the Aeldari/Eldar were the ones in the firing line for this treatment and quick and effective was the name of the game!
With that in mind, here are the Wraithblades for my craftworld army that will use Iyanden tactics. Though the craftworld is called Laksh'vron, translated roughly into high gothic as 'Those That Whisper'.
Over the next week or so I will show you the rest of the army, that is 2k points and comprises of 17 or 18 miniature that were painted in 4 days of solid grind! I've also written a list for this army that will be at least 6k points when I am done!
I am currently working in Dundee doing experiments over night, so I have had plenty of time on my hands. I decided to bring a miniature up that I have had laying around primed for some time now and a bag of paints. Thus behold! Cypher the Fallen Angel.
He isn't finished yet, aside from the base, I need to do lots more work on the cloak to get it up to scratch. I'm aiming to make the cloak look somewhat ghostly, which is what I was trying for with his armour as well.
