Eldar vs Dark Angels


This was my army for the night, a 50PL Spirit Host - I was quite pleased with it on paper...

Aeldari Reinforcements



With the 8th Ed bug having bitten me pretty hard I've made a concerted effort to get my Eldar painted. Above represents a fair few evenings assembly. The Cobra was an eBay purchase, I have a sneaking suspicion it's china cast but I really can't say for certain, it's superbly detailed and not brittle/smelly but I'm not sure...if it is it was accidental on my part. 

I've subsequently airbrushed the colour onto them and I think Vallejo must have adjusted the colours because it's paler than the last bottle I bought...3 years ago. Never mind.


This is my pile of 36 Harlequins I still have to build. I'm honestly considering selling half of them because it's too daunting a prospect!



This is what I have completed thus far, I also have a Solitaire and another Shadowseer already painted, in total it's about 100PL Battalion army.

I've still got a week of the holidays left so I'm going to try and get some more garage time so I can airbrush more things, that Cobra for instance...

(Backup) 8th edition Battle (sort of) report...



So last club night my mate and I ran through a game of 8th edition 40K and we both agreed it was really good.

It was only a 30PL game but we tried to use an array of units to give us a sense offs they play. As mentioned in an earlier post I ran Craftworld Aeldari with a Farseer, Warlock, Rangers, Guardian Squad, Striking Scorpions and a Wraithlord. My opponent fielded his Dark Angels and had a full tactical Squad a, terminator Squad and a terminator Librarian.

New stuff from Forge World?

This popped up on my Facebook feed from someone on the EOH podcast page.

Preparing for 8th Edition

This coming Friday I'm hoping to get to play a small game of 8th edition. "7th edition" was a dirty phrase at our club and so it was almost never played - to be fair though our local GW had their club night on at the same time as ours and it was always heaving, people just went there instead - but there are several people willing to give 8th a go.

The plan is to put out a 30 power level game between Aeldari and Space Marines. I've chosen the following lists to allow us to experiment with most aspects of the game:
