The rift between the two halves of the Imperium is guarded by a Bastion World beset upon all sides by forces within and without. Once again it’s ten minutes to Midnight for the Imperium of man! I take a look through the newest campaign addition to Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000. Join me for a first look through the book!
I've been working on the Jetbikes for the last two weeks. Just the orange highlights are left at this point as well as the decals. I didn't have these ready for Fall In!, but they're going to be getting some paint early next year I think, six custom Night Spinner turrets. I used most of the Forgeworld turret, just replacing the cockpit glass with some from fan-made proxies. These didn't make it down to Fall In! either but I'm hoping to finish them before the end of the year and EpiComp. They're my Wild Riders, I decided to paint them up in Sunblitz Brotherhood colors.
Only a very quick write up I’m afraid for this game because we lost track of time and then ran out of time. Curse you time!

I finished the orange highlights this week on the Vypers and tidied up the base edges as well. They'll get some seal coats this weekend and maybe some grass tufts along with the Falcon hulls. I started on the Jetbikes yesterday too, just to get some paint on them for Fall In.
Today we have the Farseer Skyrunner I built and painted along with my Windrider squad. It's based on a third-party sculpt I acquired from a Russian ebay seller. Find out more after the jump.More after the jump
I finished converting my Jetbike Farseer this week. I removed the Guardian's torso and right arm, and got the Farseer's torso in there as a replacement. I then puttied the robes around what was left of the body and used a staple as the base for the right arm. On that went the Farseer's right hand and spear, and I used a staple again as the haft of the spear. I only got one night of painting in this week, so the Vypers only got their gems done and their first coat of orange. I did take one Vyper to completion just to see what it looked like highlighted. The only thing I went back and changed was to add some black in the engine exhaust areas.
I finished the painting on the Falcon hulls this week, and got them all gloss and dull coted up. Once I get a few more things done I'll do the grass tufts all in one go. I need to finish up making the turrets for these so they look presentable for Fall In! I also started on my Wild Rider conversion. Thoughts? He'll also be getting stabilizing fins and a back pennant. I used the head and sword of a Harlequin, filed off the mask and put on a Chaos Cultist's face on over it. This is my Jetbike Autarch/Wild Rider Chief conversion. She'll have the same fins and pennants as well. I used a Banshee head and right arm, and made the axe head out of a Farseer's Singing Spear. Both of these will be getting some putty. Finally, it was really nice to speed through some units after slogging through the 18 Falcons hulls for so long. I finished the black and weapons on my Vypers this week, as well as the decals. I hope to finish them the gems and orange next week.
Finally, I completed my unit of Aeldari Windriders. Painting them wasn't too difficult, nevertheless, they took a while to finish, as you essentially have to paint two models in one (the jetbikes and the riders). I also had to face a lot of crunch time in my job the last couple of weeks, so my hobby time diminished. But the result was worth it, I feel they compliment my Iybraesil collection very well.More after the jump
This past weekend was the Thanksgiving Day long weekend in Canada. I'd hoped to get a bunch of gaming in - mostly play testing for the games I'm running at ToonCon this next weekend. I did get a few games in, but not nearly as many as I'd hoped. I was pretty tired - all this past week or so I've been feeling like I've been on the cusp of coming down with a cold - sore throat, general tiredness, but it never full developed into one...? Also there was a lot of other stuff going on, not the least of which was Amanda packing and trying to get ready for a trip Monday morning (she had to get up at 3:30am and leave the house at 4am to catch a 6am flight to Toronto for the first leg of her journey!).Kill TeamWe started off the weekend with a four-player game of Kill Team on Friday night. I'd hoped to play Kill Team every evening all weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday) but only ended up getting games in on Friday and Saturday...FRIDAYBruce joined us for the evening and I ran a four-player game for Him, Aman
Nearly done with the orange, I just need to give the back row the last two highlights. After that it's rocks, base edges, gloss coat, decals, dullcote and grass. That should be doable over the weekend or early next week. I'm still working on the turrets for these. While I finish getting those ready for paint I'll likely see about Jetbikes or Vypers.
Hi everyone, I'm back sooner than expected and this time with an Eldar/ Aeldari Saim Hann Farseer which was painted for a painting competition, judged by Lecoqadoodledo. I decided to paint the farseer once again with the Saim Hann craftworld scheme as in recent years, they have really grown on me. I wanted to stay true to the Eavy Metal box art but with some subtle changes as you can see from the gems to the crystal blade.More after the jump
I haven't updated in awhile as I've been renovating our downstairs bathroom. As that's been wrapping up I've been getting some more time to paint 6mm stuff again. I've completed the cockpit glass, weapons and engines on the Falcon hulls. Now comes the long slog through the orange. One hull got the first highlight. I edge highlight most of the tank, then go back and to the outside/higher edges with a lighter orange. After that I do the sharper corners lighter and finally put a dot of my lightest color right at the corner.
Two games in a week! What! I do t think this has ever happened before! It’s Aeldari vs Astra Militarum today at 1,500 Points at Boards and Swords again. Mission The mission was Tactical Objectives, Deadlock. Draw six cards turn one then up to five on turn two, up to four on turn three, etc. Stratagems cost double Command Points from turn three onwards. This leads to a lot of pressure and action towards the start of the game. If you can’t score early on, you won’t score. Deployment I finished deploying last of course. Greg, my Aeldari enemy, chose […] The post Aeldari vs Astra Militarum – 1,500 Points appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
Hello.Recently I went to NOVA 2018. And I used it as motivation to complete an army I've been working on for quite some time.This Army.This whole army started because I liked Mandrakes. So everything is themed around that, so stayed with spooky things.AOS Tree Revenants as Wracks & HaemonculusArchonAs a add-on I wanted to use some Silent Shroud Harlequins, because you know scary stuff.Had a few Razorwings laying around Sticks out for now, but I plan to replace it with the next High Elf Skycutter I seeOne of the last things I worked on was finishing my Skyweavers, but not the 6 actual ones I already had partially painted.These GuysThe very last thing I worked on was a small Eldar detachment for much larger NOVA events.Deer-LocksWraith-seer was a old Project, but I gave him some blue to help him fit inI'm not sure where I'll go from here with this army. It filled out pretty nicely, and I've done pretty good of exhausting GWs mandrake-like and bird selection. But maybe one day GW will revisit
So Harlequins have been around for awhile. From their standalone chapter approved release way back when, to being a foot note unit in other Eldar armies, and to finally their own "Standalone" codex that exists today.They're Ninja clowns that pop out of...
