Thanks Viterbi, too true.

The unit with all three together.

I have to do something about the stands as those plastic tops are an accident waiting to happen. The weight of the metal riders also makes them a little heavy at the rear.

The long painting war continues...

Thank you Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll.

So it has been a little bit since I worked on the army...however a number of figures have been added that require paint.

Three more Shining Spears (selected to be painted first for the Unofficial Monthly Painting Challenge...wait you say, March is for Marines...that is why there are Marine parts to make a dead one for the end of a laser lance)


A converted Striking Scorpion Exarch (Who notices the change?)


Another Dire Avenger Exarch


Another Support Weapon and Crew


As well as some assorted extra weapons to paint up for Ware Walkers, Support Weapons, and Wave Serpents.

The long painting and converting war continues...

Another classic Avenger Exarch makes the world a better place. Is that Asurmen's hand on the Scorpion or is it pieced together from other parts?

Nice idea with the dead marine on the shining spears. I’m with youwashock on the hand being swapped, though I don’t know my Eldar bits well enough to say where it’s come from

Cool way to get more spears into a painting challenge, looking forward to seeing it come together. The arm swap on the scorpion looks good too.

I've never been a fan of dead guy on spear, but if anyone can make it look good, it'll be the Captain here.

Thank you youwashock, I think you are right, it came off a plastic Guardian or Dire Avenger plastic arm that came in a bits bundle...so I was not certain. But it is metal, and not from those plastic kits, so Asurmen's left arm is the likely source.

Thanks gobert,

Thanks Briancj, only a temporary addition for the completion, it will not be permeant. However it might be added for battles against one of the five Marine armies in my gaming group.

WIP on the next three Shining Spears.

Dying space marine not yet included...he will be added once I highlight add the banners.

More old Eldar is good old Eldar as always CB. Thanks for sharing - that old DA exarch is one of my favourite models of all time, so another one is twice the fun. I thought I had de ja vu seeing him in this blog!

Looking forward to more - always impressed with how clean you can get your whites.

Looking good already Captain! What’s the plan with the Marines legs? Has he lost them in battle or are you mid reposing them?

Looking good, Cap'n. Those pennants are just the best. Astartes pattern hood ornament also looks interesting.

Thank you both.

Since the Marine kits provide no spares, none of my mates could provide me a complete body or legs. So I used the Marine gunner and his legs have been sheered off by Laser Lance fire and then speared in close combat. Only going to be a temporary attachment for the Monthly Painting Competition.

Here are the three Shining Spears completed.

Thank you Ezki, Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll, Fifty, Maharg, Briancj, and gobert for the responses.

Brianci, just white printer paper, folded on itself with glue for some strength.

The full set of six completed.


Now the last three are going to be quite challenging, as I have run out of metal parts for lances, legs, one torso, and one back banner post. So some conversions are in the works.

Those spears are certainly shining.l, such a bright, crisp and smooth job on the white.

Good luck with converting the final 3, cannot wait to see how they look.

Great group shot and amazing work on the whites! And the list of stuff you need sounds daunting, good luck with the conversions.
