I finished up the Void Spinners the other week and also went back and updated the rocks on some of the older bases to match my newer scheme. I'd still like to strengthen the black highlights on the super-heavies at some point but figured this was a good place to leave for the year. So here's just over 6,000 points of my Epic Craftworld Lugganath Eldar army. Still plenty left to do though (Aspects, Guardians, Wave Serpents and Titans being the bulk of it).
A while ago I stocked up on equipment, to continue the work on the miniatures. Somebody gave me the hint to use nithril gloves instead of the regular latex ones. They are a bit more sturdy, that is clear, but the aceton dissolves the glove and an black oily smear goes onto the miniatures and […]
Today I have another game against the Eldar, played at Boards & Swords, I am taking 150 Astra Militarum Infantry! This will be quite the battle as both forces have completely different lists and styles of play. Also, what do you think of my overview photos, see later… 150 Astra Militarum Infantry List I just wanted to go infantry heavy in this game, because it is fun. I also wanted to work in my new Psykers and my new Heavy Mortars from Forgeworld (nearly done).

I'd like to finish the basing on the Dwarves as well as their artillery before the end of the year but I'm burnt out on them for now. I headed back to the Void Spinners (third times the charm) and finish 2 of them. I hope to finish the third, touch-up the black highlights and de-gloss them this weekend. This is what I managed to get done last week before Fall In! I finished the skin and hair on the dwarves, and got them on bases along with the ballast. The decals didn't end up working out, they printed poorly and I found myself touching them up far too much. I scrapped the idea and painted simple patterns on the shields to differentiate the Warriors. I'll got back and match the shield pattens on the banners as well. The general still is a work-in-progress, I'm converting him up along with an unreleased musician. I did manage to get some good decal prints for him and the Anvil, they'll be the only two in the army.
I have another Vigilus Narrative Mission Battle Report in this article for you. My last one was great fun against the Ad Mech.

I tried to speed paint some Eldar Guardians a few months back, using just a quick purple wash and metallic Sharpie for the Shuriken Rifles. This was before the release of the new Contrast Paints, but I think they turned out well despite spending much time painting them....

It’s time for another 40k Battle Report! This time Owen is building a custom Wraith Craftworld using the new Phoenix Rising rules to take on my Deathwatch in this 1750pt ITC 2019 mission.
Today i take a look at the newest Supplement for Warhammer 40,000 – Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising. This new book adds rules to the 2017 Codex: Craftworlds and 2018 Codex: Drukhari, as well as brand-new format for playing the Ynarri.
Today I bring you my second outing against John’s Eldar. We are playing 1,750 points again at Boards and Swords Hobbies.

I wanted to take a Brigade of Catachans now that Chris from the Unrelenting Brush had finished my next batch of Catachan infantry.

I finished up a few more Epic minis over the weekend...Four plastic Whirlwinds.Seven metal Vindicators (I already have another painted for a total of eight). not sure if any of those things out front count as a Siege Shield...?)All of these will probably be organized into two Spearhead detachments of four Vindicators and two Whirlwinds. I can't seem to find my Apocalypse rules. But I'm pretty sure Spearhead Detachment can have a maximum of six Heavy Support - of which all of these are... (so I can't put ALL the vindicators in one big detachment!)Here's something odd... I have a detachment with four squads of Terminators... and a captain n terminator armour. To transport those Terminators I thought I'd use Land Raiders... unfortunately Terminators are Elites and land raiders are NOT considered Transports - they're considered Heavy Support! A Vanguard Detachment can have up to SIX Elites, but only two Heavy Support... A Spearhead Detachment can have up to SIX Heavy Support... but only two Elites!? WTF!?I also f
I was going to include this in my previous painting update post, but it ended up being so much that I felt it deserved a whole post of its own.I've been toying with the idea of using the new Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse rules with my "Epic Scale" 40K stuff. Recently I was looking at what I had and took stock and tried to form them into detachments to see how big of a game (in terms of number of units and power level - the minis are really very small...) I could put on the table and what, if anything I'd need to paint to play reasonable sized battle. I found for both Eldar and Space Marines I had in the neighbourhood of 300-400 Power Level. I may paint up a few more items for both forces before I actually get these on the table... I'm shooting for about 400 Power Level on each side.To start with... The EldarASURYANI FORCE for EPIC APOCALYPSEThe entire force (so far!). This comes to about 400 Power LevelThese were previously organized for Future War Commander - where an element is an element and the number of f
In the display cabinets are various models from Warhammer 40k including these splendid . Eldar Wraithknight Looming ghost warriors many times larger than even the mighty Wraithlords, the war machines known as Wraithknights are still dextrous enough to run through the ruin of a shattered city, leaping from pillar to spar as their arcane weapons bring oblivion to the enemies of the Aeldari. In the same shot is the Eldar Fire Prism which I didn’t know has been released as a plastic kit. Armed with a formidable prism cannon that can blast smoking holes into enemy vehicles or vaporise infantry, the Fire Prism is a versatile and deadly addition to any Aeldari army.

Massive diorama at Warhammer World between Eldar and Tyranids. Clever volcanic scenery as well. The post Eldar vs Tyranids appeared first on Felix's Gaming Pages.
