Showcase: Dark Eldar Archon

Today I bring the new version of Archon that I picked up about a week ago. The day I bought him was a fun one as I finally got to meet Stahly before he set off to the Warhammer event with Garfy. I'm still bummed that I never got the chance to go due to work as from what I heard they had a awesome time. Hopefully next year. I like the new Archon model a lot and he was a fun painting project. The only thing that I would recommend is not to glue the head to the model before painting. I can imagine if the head is glued painting could be a nightmare. What do you guys think?

WIP: Dwarfs Hammerers WIP #3

This is what I have been working on lately to finish up the Hammerers. I am theming my Dwarfs around Belegar which explains the red/purple/white color scheme. I call the unit the Ruby Regiment, the blood sworn bodyguard of Belegar Ironhammer, King of Karak Eight Peaks. I pulled the Eight Peaks banner icon from the Dwarfs book but gave it a round blood drop bottom and a Rune of Courage for good measure.

Showcase: Dark Eldar Voidraven Bomber

Hey all :) Today I bring you a Dark Eldar Voidraven Bomber. I've been a little quiet on ToP recently due to the amount of commission work that I have to complete. It's really been that crazy and hopefully soon I should start posting more again. Initially I was planning on painting it the usual Dark Eldar green color scheme that GW had done, but decided against it.

Report: Warhammer Fest 2014

On Sunday 12th of October, Stahly and Garfy made the pilgrimage to Warhammer Fest. With a Full English Breakfast in our bellies and wearing our Tale of Painters T-Shirts we ventured into this inaugural event. In case you couldn't make it to the event, all you need to know is after the jump.

Showcase: Skaven Warlord on Rat Ogre Bonebreaker

As I mentioned in previous posts I just recently attended my first team event. My buddy on the team wanted to play my Skaven for the event. The organizers wouldn't let him run the Screaming Bell so he asked me to make up this brute for the list. I guess the good thing about wacky comp systems is the cool stuff you get to make up to fit them.

WIP: Dark Eldar Venom #3

So here we have update #3 on my Venom. I've highlighted the hull, even though the highlights are a bit rough and need some refining later. I also made good progress on the gunner. In case you have missed the posts before and wonder why he wears an Incubus helmet, it's because this Venom is supposed to carry my Incubi to battle. At the moment I'm working on the various skulls on the model, and the canopy needs a blue rune freehand, too.

How do you like my Venom so far? And has anyone had some games with the new codex? Is it as bad as feared?
