Of course, the Xenos never have the common decency to sit still and await the annihilation justly mandated by the Divine Emperor.

Sorry to hear about the duldrums and loss of perks. Chin up, keep swinging.

Great dread, and nice work on the ML. Looking forward to seeing the WL come together, too.

Thanks. Done with the WL.

Someone might have spent a little too much time in the howling banshee shrines before her death.






She’s a little shorter then the fire support WL due to her stance. But sometimes you just need to charge across the battlefield and cave open tanks with a sword almost as tall as you are.

I probably should have carved the kneepad off when I was repositioning the leg. Moved it down and done most of the GS fill behind it. But every time I take a knife/saw to something increases the odds of me mangling it beyond fixing. So I just left it as-is.

Wow, that went together fast. Looks great, too. That reverse grip on the sword is a fantastic choice. You can just see the point carving a rut in the ground as she sprints up and slashes across to spell ruin for some poor mon'keigh.

I didn’t quite capture the pose I was looking for. I wanted to lead with the arm cannon, like she was shooting at her target, looking down the gun as she ran towards it. It’s a little down and to the side. If I was braver (and more picky) I could have cut off the shoulderpad to angle it up to give more range of motion to the arm. It looked to be an easy mod, I just didn’t want to bother.

I think I got the feel of the sword arm , but am not 100% on it. She’s trailing that arm as she runs, but is ready to snap the blade up and around when she makes contact.

I almost put some ribbons on her to help with the sense of motion, but figured she’s got enough of that, and the odds of them just snapping off were high. I did add a horse-hair plume though.


Just put the brown wash on these guys. Getting there. But still a lot of washes and inks left to go.

It’s the flock and goblin green, isn’t it. Nothing brings out nostalgia like goblin green.

Fun fact: Bolters used to have the same stat line as crossbows. Skeletons used to be able to take crossbows, but none came on the sprues. Bolters are easy to find, crossbows were not. I’ve got a stick of bolter shooting skeletons somewhere on the back of the shelf.

Probably a BA successor, Soul Drinkers are good possibility.

With all the tricks they’ve learned from the Nighthault line, I’d love to see GW make a new LotD kit. Gothic spectral grimdark.

Have The Boy this weekend, got a game in. Full 40k, not KT this time.

Pointy eared gits:


Vs. Salamanders (in blue)


Mission is the one objective each one, He goes first.

Start:


He deploys poorly. While all clumped together in cover, he’s getting in his own way. That said, he gets first blood by killing my wraithlord; one of these days he’ll get to do something. He also savages the guardian squad. If I’m going to start them on the table, they need to be larger then 10 guys, or camping in the way back.

I respond by blowing all but two wounds off his SR, and moving my WS full of fun right next to his hill. Bikes move to the center.

Turn two he drops almost all his fire into the WS, eventually killing it. He makes a bit of a blunder by overcharging his hellblasters and shooting at something with a -2 hit modifier. 4/5s of the squad overheats and dies. His honour guard and jump captain maul my bikers, but fail to eliminate them. I think his snipers plink 3 wounds off my farseer this turn. Ouch.

Things get ugly on my turn. CH blows up the pred, which explodes handing out d3 mortal wounds to a large swath of guys. I finish off the raven, and maim everyone left on the hill in the shooting phase. Bikes flee CC and head over to the other side of the table. Scytheguard pile into CC, because why not, but don’t get a whole lot done there.

The carnage:


His captain hops in the razorback and they take off towards the other side of the table, abandoning the dregs of the primaris to the tender mercies of the necromantic constructs. His remaining HG and JP captain head towards the Nightspinner and the objective. Shooting is light, but the razor blows a chunk off the spinner.

I doom and reveal the scouts, having had quite enough of their crap. The remaining bike and the seer polish them off (with some hot dice). Scytheguard finish clearing the hill. His captain and guard get cought in a brutal crossfire and perish. I blow almost all the wounds off the razor.

Top of turn 4 he’s got a 5 man tac squad and a wounded captain in a razor that’s in it’s third damage bracket. We evaluate his chances of victory, and decide to just call it. While he’s got first blood, I’ve got boots on both objectives, linebreaker, and warlord. He’s out of position, and I’ve still got a ton of firepower on the table.

Victory to the foul xenos.


Fresh paint report:
Wraithlord continues to eat firepower and die on the first turn. Eventually he’ll get to do something. Probably when I finish painting the other one, so she’ll die first instead.
Bikes did the bike thing. Mostly flit around and make sure they were closer to the enemy then the jetseer. Still, blasting doomed targets with massed shuricain fire is always fun.
Guardians started in the open and did as well as could be expected. Poorly.
Scytheguard lived up to the hype. The WS did the job getting them close, and they did the rest. The one thing holding them back was they were splitting fire over 3 different squads, so the d3 shots made allocating fire rough. But they owned that hill.

Edit:
No pics, finished a KT game. Another victory for me. Gunline is strong. With guys leveling up, I think we’ll go to 110 next time.

Nevelon,

Well the fact that your Wraithlord absorbs so much fire means that fire is not directed at toughness 3 Eldar. So think of it as a good thing.

Mine survives every battle as I have been using it as a large weapons platform guarding the Dark Reapers.

Question: "Salamanders (in blue)?" Heresy.

Cheers,

CB

I know it eats fire that could be spent elsewhere, but I’d like to actually do something with it once or twice. Distraction carnifax is fine though. Although with what they did this game, the scytheguard in the WS might take priority next time. Target priority has never been his strong point.

The Boy is (very slowly) painting his own Salamander army. Until that gets finished enough to field, he uses my Ultras, but counts-as Salamanders with their CT. He uses his own guys for KT, but the fact that he’s been spending a lot of time building and painting HQs kinda hampers him there. He needs to buckle down and crank out some more troops, but he tends to flit between active projects.

Some of the building were starting to fall apart, so hit the bench for some glue. While I was at it, I dug out the scraps of buildings that didn’t survive well, and patched them together as best I could. I think I still have one more still un punched, but would have to figure out how it went together. Content adding 3 more buildings to the roster. Happy little ruined village now.

I have only once had my Wraithlord fall in a battle. My Blood Angels friend hates the thing and tends to either ignore it completely (and then it smashes into his lines and destroys them while taking out vehicles with its Bright Lances) or sends everything he has at it, bogging down his entire army. The one time he took it down was in turn four in which he had it surrounded by Sanguinary Guard, a Dreadnought, Lemartes, and a host of Death Company, and this was after he had shot at the Wriathlord for a few turns. A Wraithlord with Farseer support is a mean thing. To spook my friend I somtimes suggest I might bring all three of my Wraithlords next time (of course I wouldn't!).

Nice to see your battle reports, Nev. What buildings are those? Edit: nevermind, the line of text right above the pictures tells me. I assure you I can read.

I should probably point out the damage/threat assessment of various Eldar units to The Boy. Would probably help with WL survival. Although the rest of my army might vaporize.

The middle building is actually from the 6th? edition WHFB starter box (Empire vs. Orcs). The only reason I know this is that the getting started pamphlet with instructions on how to build it was in the box with my buildings.

Just to prove I’m still working:


Deathwatch moving along, and a War Walker getting put together.

Almost done building the walker. The gun mounts are not glued yet. I just glued the torso to the legs and wanted to make sure that was set before tweaking the angles of the mounts. Magnetized, as I have no clue what to gear them with. ShurCans seem a nice fit, as assault weapons work with their zippy nature. But I generally have a lot of those anyway. But I’ve got a lot of AV firepower on my tanks. Oh well, magnets mean I don’t need to care.

Getting layers down on the DW. Just browns left for basecoats, then it’s off to washes, dryrushes, and edges.

Put the brown layer on the DW. Hopefully get more done on them today.

The to-prime pile was a little Eldar heavy, so I built some reinforcements for the DW.



Old one there for comparison. Carving the shoulder pad off of the marine was not hard, but the raised rim means that you can only have the arm in the down position. Not wanting two identical guys, I carved the mounting brace off the other arm so it could pivot freely. Need to be a little careful, as the backpack is right there and prone to interfere with some angles. As I’m only planning for two fortis kill teams, these guys should fill my inceptor needs for a while. Eventually I might build the sarge, just so I can field them solo. Or add another guy to a killteam.

Need to build some old marine vets. Need heavy weapons and stombolter/chiansword guys. Plus a vanguard. Not sure what to give him. Probably just whatever looks cool. Might try for a 2x chainsword build.

Heh.

Boys got some more paint on them this morning.


Almost ready for the second coat of black, then it’s just grey edges. And I should probably dig out their chapter shoulder pads and do those as well.

Spent a little more time thinking about the vanguard for the DW vet squad. I was contemplating 2x chainswords. Free upgrade, he’s mostly there for the special rule. But on review of options, I’m thinking maybe gunslinging pair bolt pistols. Thoughts? I’m really open to anything at this point.

Doing something similar to your War Walker in my Eldar log...just a little older and a bit heavier.

Death Watch are coming along.

Really like the parts combo on the DW with the sword.

I vote gunslinger. He aims with his eye, shoots with is mind, kills with his heart. And explosive bullets.

I do like the old nothing but force field walkers, but the new ones aren’t bad. Good luck building that one.

Of my intercessors sarges with swords, I think he rates 3 out of 4. I really like the pose on the first one I made for my Ultras, and prefer the build on the other deathwatch sarge. Still, I do like him and he’s coming together nicely.

Basically at the grey edges, touch ups, bases, and chapter shoulder pads.

Part of me wants to gunslinger with fancy pistols. But special ammo and cost make bolt pistols quite attractive. Of course, my destroyer project ate a ton of my spares. We’ll have to see what the bits box has to offer. I also need to scrap up a ton of chainswords for SB/chainsword vets. I’d just hang them off the back of belts, but the DW torsos come with combat knives there already. And the backpacks don’t lent themselves well to mounting there. Have to poke around.

Almost there. Done with the edges. One thing I’m still on the fence on is the RG shoulder pad. Straight black didn’t appeal to me. Went with grey. I’m thinking I might go red. It’s the color RG vets use on their non-chapter shoulder, and a little spot of color would do him some good. Thoughts?
