This is a momentous... um... moment? Anyway, I've finally completed some minis! Right down to spraying them with Testors Dull Cote, these guys are done. There are some details that I might have liked to have cleaned up a bit... but I had to stop the endless cycle of fiddling with stuff or I'd never be done. So here we have the first of my finished Eldar minis.
Here we have a family photo of two squads of Eldar Guardians. There are ten Guardians in each squad with a heavy weapon platform. The platforms have Eldar Missle Launchers on the right now, but being magnetized I'll have plenty of opportunity to try them different ways and see what works best for me.
The Guardians get a little overwhelmed sometimes, so I have brought in their reinforcement. Also finished is my Wraith Lord. He carries a huge scythe which is also a trophy from his previous life as the Autarch of Craftworld Altansar. He will likely get his own blog post with full fluff story included, but I'll summarize here. Being stuck in the Eye of Terror for the last ten thousand years, Altansar has had to repel many attacks by daemons. There was one greater daemon in particular who lead attacks on Altansar relentlessly. Each time the attacks were repelled. Finally in a duel of epic proportions the Autarch took on the greater daemon in single combat. After a long battle they slew each other, but not before the Autarch cut one of the long bladed appendages from the daemon. The Autarchs soul stone was taken and placed in the craftworld where his soul could rest, if only for a short time. The weapon of the daemon was worked into the scythe by the craftworlds Bonesingers. Now when the craftworld goes to war that Autarch marches with them still. And enemies, especially daemons, who see the greater daemons bone enslaved within the wraithbone weapon are filled with dread.
And another shot just for good measure. I think the Wraith Lord looks best with matching weapons, but in game play, it would probably either be two different weapons, or just one. But for photos, I like him to be extra menacing.
Hope you've enjoyed this update. The Dire Avengers are almost done, as are the three War Walkers. Pictures of those finished and ready to rock should be up by mid next week. Maybe sooner? Then it's on to the first twenty Storm Guardians which are primed and ready to start being painted. I'm thinking of a third Heavy Choice. A battery of heavy weapon platforms might be nice, but another squadron of War Walkers sure sounds shootier and more flexible. Any thoughts, comments, criticisms are welcome. Thanks for stopping by!
