The Aeldari

Now then,I collected an Eldar army way back in the early 90s when I was but a youth. Since restarting my 40k addiction last year I have tarted them up somewhat. There were lots of broken models, all chucked in a box, and left for years. Ive always liked the models so it seemed a shame.The mainstay of the army are of course the guardian squads. Mine are made up of very old metal miniatures from the late 80's and early 90's.Supported by war walkers and a wraith lord.Leading them in battle are the farseer and warlock conclave.Of course no Eldar or Aeldari as they are called these days, would be complete without Aspect Warriors. The most common type are of course the Dire Avengers, led by their Exarch.Next up we have the Fire Dragons. Led by their Exarch with his fire pike.Now we come to one of my favourite units, the Warp Spiders. Swooping Hawks, useful troops, but fragile.Striking Scorpions. My largest Aspect squad, useful as bodyguards for my characters or to be left lurking in the shadows, waiting t

Legio Amare Feles Walks...

One of my oldest and favouritest gaming pals dropped me a line on Thursday or Friday and said he'd be in town on Saturday and wondered if I'd be able to play a game! All plans were cleared away as this was a moment I'd been looking forward to for, literally, a decade or more!I met Woody over thirty years ago when he took over management of The Wizard'd Corner - Saskatoon's first gaming store. He is actually responsible for my introduction to the world of Warhammer - through Warhammer Fantasy Battle - and got me seriously collecting and painting miniatures for massed battles. Oh, I had had miniature figurines before that, but they were mostly for role-playing. I'd actually also owned AD&D's Battlesystem - but had only ever played it once or twice - with counters...He had planned to run a campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Battle - each of us involved bought a huge sheet of hexagonal grid paper - I feel like it was 20"x24" with 3/4" hexes...? We were all to draw our own starting lands on that and the idea was a

Coming of the Comet

Twotwill Island, Xoxigar Tertium (Imperial World)3.537.019.M42The Asuryani of the Biel-Tim Fleet shifted their focus from Xoxigar Secondus, to the more lush Xoxigar Tertium. Farseer Thymiltelyir foretold of a comet making landfall on a remote island of the world. At the centre of the comet would be an extremely rare element that was vital to the continued survival of their fleet. The warhost under his command had hoped that they would be leaving the hated Astartes behind on Xoxigar Secondus, but as they arrived at the site, there they were... just waiting for them... As the two forces approached to engage each other, debris from the comet coming apart started falling from the sky. FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Biel-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachme

Wolves Strike!

On Thursday afternoon I had another game of Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse - this time with Orion  and his Space Wolves.A Warhost of the Biel-Tim Fleet, having successfully executed a mission against the Mon-Keigh, regrouped at the rally point and prepared for extraction through the webway...Just as they were making their final preparations for extraction, the wolf-lords of Fenris struck! They were wild creatures, more animal-like than even the basest of the Mon-Keigh...FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Autarch (+ Warp Jump Generator) - 6PL - WarlordTroopsRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PLFast AttackWarp Spiders (10) - 12 PLAsuryani Spearhead Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan)&

Assault on Throshi Station

On Wednesday evening Other Tim and I tried a smaller game of Apocalypse - each of us had around 100 points...Throshi Station, Xoxigar Secondus (Mechanicus Forge World)4.525.019.M42There was a brief, desperate cry for help, and then silence. Throshi Station had gone dark.In the following hours, rumours spread of a massacre. The Eldar had come from seemingly nowhere, in the middle of the night, and killed everyone in the remote mining and processing station on Xoxigar Prime. This followed the modus operandi of the perfidious Eldar - strike with surprise and excessive violence and then disappear as quickly as they had arrived... except... they didn't disappear this time. A force was holding the station for some reason, at least temporarily. Long enough for a company of the Emperor's Brethren Space Marine Chapter to mount a counter-attack!FORCESAeldari Forces of the Biel-Tim FleetAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL - War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers

Eldar Super Heavy Detachment - Tempest/Scorpion Heavy Grav-Tanks

I finished the last of my Tempest Heavy Grav-Tanks last night - just in time for this afternoon's game of Apocalypse against Other Tim.A complete Super Heavy Detachment of Tempest Heavy Grav-Tanks (being used as Scorpions). The models are old Armorcast models, which I picked up off of eBay over the last year.The latest addition.I've decided to give each a name as it seems that's an aeldari thing to do... Like the names of their Titans, their names are rather long. The short version of this tanks name is "T'chylmylwynbil". The literal translation of the long name is "The Five-Legged Beast That Stalks Its Prey by Night, Which Lasts Forever"Oh, those Eldar...I have come up with names for the others as well....This one is "Dilytichylmywil"  (again, the shorter version - or nick name). The full translation is "Flowering Plant with Excessively Large Sex Organs That Makes the Mon-Kee Blush, But is Very Sustaining and Tastes Good in Soup".I assure you it's much more poetic (and makes more sense) in it's ori

Another Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank

At some point I might make a base for them and raise them off the ground a touch to look a little bigger/taller and like they're floating a little bit...?Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:I played a game of Apocalypse last night with Other Tim and another one this afternoon with Orion... so hopefully I'll get some game reports posted for those...After that...? I think I'll crank out the last Tempest and THEN I'll get cracking on some Necromunda. I'd wanted to start a (trail) campaign THIS weekend so I could wrap it up before September when I play to run another with a few more people...

Elsewhere on Elamdavar

After Sunday's first crack at the apocalypse, everyone was anxious to have another go... and... since it's summer holidaze... We played another game on Monday. This one went a bit quicker and we played, more or less, to it's conclusion.While the Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld was defending the ruins of Belylath, another fierce battle was brewing elsewhere on the Exodite World of Elamdavar around the desert settlement of Gilfahith.... Here the forces of the Biel-Tim fleet and Rainbow Warriors Contemporary Dance Company faced another invading horde of Hivefleet Haemorrhoid!FORCESCombined Aeldari Forces Asuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Farseer - 4 PL War MasterWarlock - 3 PLTroopsDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLDire Avengers (5) - 4 PLElitesHowling Banshees (5) - 5 PLAsuryani Battalion Detachment - Beil-Tim Fleet (as Biel-Tan) HQ Autarch (+ Warp Jump Generator) - 7PL - WarlordTroopsRangers (5) - 5 PLRangers (5) - 5 PL

The Defence of Elamdavar

I picked up the new Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse rules yesterday... and some Data Cards... and fancy dice... (But I didn't buy the new movement trays, because I made my own! I need to make a bunch more now, though!).Originally we planned to have Just a family game on Sunday... Finnegan and I could play my Imperial Engines along with a detachment or two of footslogging Imperial Guard against the combined might of the Grrrlz Aeldari (Amanda's Drukhari, Keira's Asuryani and Harlequins). But then we thought we might invite others over to play as well and ended up inviting the kids' friend Ian over along with his massive horde of bug-things.BACKGROUNDThe exodite world of Elamdavar is in dire peril! An unforseen invasion of the Tyranids of Hivefleet Haemorrhoid has begun! The Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld, who have strong ties to these exodites, were among the first to respond.A raiding party of Drukhari also seem to have showed up... Sometimes they find if valuable to stay in their cousins "good books"... and there we

Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav Tank

In preparation for some Apocalyptic action this weekend, I finished up the first of my (three) Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav Tanks the I have. this first one, I picked up last fall, I picked another up a month or so ago... and the third, well... it's still in the mail. But I figured I might as well get three so I could field a full Super Heavy Detachment with them.An old Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav Tank produced by Armorcast under license from GW.Now, there aren't any rules for a Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank anymore... but there is the Scorpion, which is armed with a "Twin Scorpion Pulsar" so I figured that's close enough...In it's day it was a pretty big model... compared to the original rhinos and the Falcon's that armorcast made... now... I guess it's still bigger than the current plastic Falcons, so... hopefully I can still get away with it!When I actually finish painting one of the Falcons I have, I'll post some pictures of them together for scale.Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Played our first Ap

Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld

Keira's Asuryani force has been growing a lot lately (especially with the push to get a few units completed for the Strange Bedfellows 40K Team tournament) and I've been meaning to get a picture of the complete force so far...This represents a War Host of the Thaestalyrdaes Craftworld (using Biel-Tan rules)What she has here is:HQFarseerAutarchJain ZarAvatar of KhaineTroops10 Dire Avengers10 Rangers30 Guardian DefendersElite20 Howling Banshees5 WraithbladesFast Attack6 Swooping HawksHeavy Support1 Wraith LordLord of War1 WraithknightWith the exception of the two units of Guardians I recently painted while experimenting with Contrast paints, there were all entirely painted by Keira.This force could probably be fielded as three detachments - An Auxiliary Super Heavy Detachment (the Wraithknight), a Vanguard Detachment (Jain Zar leading all the Howling Banshees split into three units) and a Battalion Detachment (with all the rest).Dammit....
