Hi, not sure how easy it'd be, but have you thought about putting lighting in the display? I'm thinking the skeleton have creepy glowing eyes would be fairly epic.

Take a look at what I've been painting and modelling: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/725222.page

That would be rad but I have no electrical skills whatsoever. I thought about doing some LEDs in the Dark Wolves snow city cabinet but just never got around to trying. Never even considered it for this one but I think you're on to something.

Anyways, got some update photos. The foam REALLY expanded, much more than I had anticipated. DISASTER! But one that can be managed by cutting the areas down. I'll be sure to keep posting more.

Not where I should be

Looks like he got attacked by Papa Nurgle. It is always a risk with that stuff.

LEDs are easy, just buy a pack of the cheap battery operated ones, they seem to be everywhere these days. You can usually get them in strings of 10. Mind you if you want them permanently lit, then maybe go for the smallest set with a plug you can get. I have some from the bargain store that have 35 LED in warm white or cold white. You can tint them easy enough. Don't have to worry about soldering up a wiring loom or anything that way. Just drill from behind and insert where required.

Hope this helps bud.

Keep it up and dig the excess! What are the vertical base holders for (the 3 behind the skeleton's hand and the 2 under the obelisk) ?

Those are rings for 40mm bases; specifically, for some scarabs. Hopefully when all is said and done, it will look like scarabs crawling across the walls.

Thanks, Insectum. Glad someone noticed the obelisk!

Sprayed the rest of the cabinet with foam, this time right-side-up to get the bottom areas covered. Then went wild with a knife inside, cutting out a ton of foam. It's getting there! Really happy with how the foam is shaping into rock around the skeleton and other areas. And lastly, got spackle filled in between all the spacer rings on every level.

Thanks, Ilgoth. I'd love to see what you come up with!

Some quick update photos. Got the whole army test fitted inside for the first time, with the exception of the scarabs that will be mounted on the interior walls. Everything fits! And I think it looks great. Still need to add details all around the cabinet and clean up the scarab wall rings. But, other than that, we are rapidly approaching paint!

Long time away, but I'm back! Feels like forever since I worked on an actual model (and not just that Necron cabinet). The cabinet is still in the works and almost ready for paint but I just had to step away from it for a bit.

Anyway, I just played in a tournament at the FLGS with the exodites. Went 2-0, didn't stay for the third round. Two solid games with great opponents. Took a few pictures of the first game, but forgot during the second. There's some new units on the board which I'll post some WIPs here in a few minutes. The major additions to the force are more Shining Spears, some Eldar Guardians, and Yvraine.

Here were the quick WIP photos taken while making the Shining Spears reinforcements. I'm now up to 9 regular spears and 2 exarchs. Played one large unit in the tournament under the Ynarri detachment. Man they were great!

Next up is Yvraine, who leads the Ynarri detachment. I REALLY liked playing her in on the table but HATED the model. So, queue a conversion! I mostly used the WHFB Dark Elf Mistweaver model with a few alterations; namely, adding a more sci-fi sword and giving her a dinosaur sheild. Also extended the wisp/smoke trial behind her. Increases her height and fills out the large base. Speaking of the base, Yvraine's whole thing is empowerment through death, so of course her base had to contain tons of dead things. Lots of skulls, bones, etc. Finally, Yvraine has a cat familiar which helps her cast powers in game. We can't have a cat here in the exodites! So, the cat is now a small dinosaur running alongside her.

Really happy with how she turned out. I'll get some pictures up of her painted, but you can scroll up to see that one tournament shot for a sneak peak.

Thanks as always, guys! Really appreciate the positive feedback.

Here were the WIPs from the Guardian squad. Used some old WHFB Dark Elf infantry with Guardian arms and heads. Used Lizardmen skink shields fitted onto the shuriken gun; after all, shields fit the "Defenders" unit name nicely AND it adds some dinosaur bits to the exodite force. Also added two bannermen for the squad as well as two guys with whips (for the dinosaur heavy weapons, which haven't been built yet).

Realized I never posted my painted Rangers. Well... here they are. I had quickly painted 10 of the 20 up for a tournament and then forgot to post them. Hope you like them as much as I do!

Also finished a group of warlocks for that same tournament a little ways back. They're based on the WHFB empire sorcerors kit, with a few tweaks. Each is armed with a spear and a unique object to help me track which warlock has which spell in game.

The only WIP photos I took were at the very start... oh well. Very happy with how they turned out, though I'm not so happy about the recent FAQ nerf they just got hit with. They may not even make my next list!

I've only just come across your thread. There's some lovely work in here!

I particularly like those warlocks - especially the one on the right with the orb. That's a really cool pose, even if it is pretty much straight out of the empire wizard box it's amazing how much difference an eldar helmet makes.

Really liking those rangers too.

Your warlocks look really good man, not to mention your shining spears, and yvraine. You have everything converted on theme and it's fantastically done.

Also got the Farseer Skyrunner all done up and finished. Pumped for how he turned out. Again, it sucks they got a points increase in game. Regardless, he will see the field next tournament for sure!
