Aeldar Jetbike Autarch Conversion Gallery

This guy started off as a humble Shining Spear Exarch, but since the rules for 8th Edition Autarch's are quite strong, he got a promotion!




I feel like it's missing something, but can't put my finger on it...

Until next time!

Shattered Spear, An Aeldari/Grey Knights Battle Report

Image
Well... that didn't go according to plan.



An exercise in not being too over confident in your own abilities, but at the same time a moment of pride as a student finally learns his army. This was a battle I had with a student in the club, and I'm really pleased with the result in a number of ways! However, I'm also now acutely aware of problems in my army list building.

The Aeldar Craftworld Wild Riders of the Bright Spear flotilla faced against a small force of the Emperor's Hammer, the Grey Knights of Titan. Here are the forces:



The Bright Spear Wild Riders Outrider Detachment (Aeldar Craftworld) Craftworld Attribute: Saim-Hann Wild Host (Re-roll Charges, Bikers can move and shoot Heavy Weapons without penalty) HQ Autarch Skyrunner: Laser Lance (Nova Lance), Twin-linked Shuriken Catapult
[108 pts]

Farseer Skyrunner: Singing Spear, Twin-linked Shuriken Catapult
Psyker: Doom, Fortune, Smite
[140 pts]
Troops Ranger Squad: 5 Rangers with Long Rifles
[60 pts]

A quick gallery of my army as it is now... it's really starting to come together!





Test tube holders make for the best model painting grips...

Until next time!

Aeldari New Year: Shining Spear Conversion Gallery

Just a quick one because my computer has decided to start ignoring its USB ports (and thus I can't get past the log in screen). These are my Shining Spear Aspect Warriors, made from Reaver Jet bikes and some old High Elf spear men kits.

Craftworld Aeldar 500 Point Starter List, The Eldar Wild Riders

Image
Do you like lightning fast armies? Do you love having the most powerful guns? Do you still want to hit hard in close combat too? Well read on, my fellow space elf players. Read on.



This is perhaps the least beginner collection friendly army I've ever written, so calling it a Starter list is a stretch at best. I drew the line at calling it Beginner, simply because of the difficulty in putting the models together, but I think it's a neat way to learn the basics of a the Eldar glass canon style.

Typically what can trip Aeldar players up is deployment. Since every unit in an Aeldar army is quite specialised, and with relatively short range weaponry, botching your deployment can leave your Wraithguard running uselessly across the battlefield and your Fire Dragons meeting a sticky end from a Genestealer rush.

This army side steps all of that with stupid fast units, and anything slow having non-standard deployments.
Rules you need to know (and love):

Aeldari New Year: Warp Spider Conversions

Image
"Chuc mung nam moi!" as they same in my adoptive home town, and Happy Year of the Dog as they
 say in my actual home village!

As part of my continuing Aeldari/Eldar renovation project, I've finally sat down and finished doing the tabletop standard paint job on my Hellion Converted Warp Spiders!





If you're looking to convert your own, the bare plastic models can be seen here. These were entirely constructed from the Hellion kit.

You can also see from my Basing with Rocks guide a bit more detail on how to put these together.

As for the paint job, it was just a dry brush version of my Blood Angel Painting Guide, using Carrabourg Crimson instead of Agrax Earthshade. About as simple as you can get, but missing an awful lot in terms of detail. They will definitely need some blue and green bits added in to tie them to the rest of the army. And for those lore sticklers, yes, they're going to need some soul stones.

Until next time!

Happy Valentine's Day from The Imperial Florists!

A day late, but minor catastrophes abound when you're in my job. My fellow neck beards...



Valentine's Day is typically a day of sadness, regret, and far too much junk food. Indeed, I remember a time where I ate an entire Valentine's Day pizza set for two on my own, tears of loneliness garnishing my pepperoni and mozzarella shame. But if you have shared in such disgrace, there is hope, and I speak to you now as someone who finally rolled that natural 20 on his Relationship check!

Stay strong and keep on rolling!



For my darling wife, who somehow manages to still put up with me and my plastic soldiers, and a full year of wasting yet more time writing about plastic soldiers, I have created another flower holder. This time, a Reiver of Love, from the Imperial Florists (who base themselves in the Imperial Palace making sure the place looks fresh).



This time I was able to use Screamer Pink, with a pin wash of Carrabourg Crimsom. Highlighted with Daemionette hide, Bugman's gl…
