WIP: Dark Eldar Venom #1

As my Shadow Spectres are finished now and just need to be photographed for the blog, I thought the release of all the new Dark Eldar models would be a great occasion to add something new to my Dark Eldar collection. I managed to resist the urge to go out and buy some of the new stuff, as I still have a couple of unbuilt Dark Eldar models waiting to be painted.

So I decided to build a Venom to transport the squad of Incubi I painted earlier this year instead. As you can see I chose the trophy rack balustrade for the Venom to compliment the look of the Incubi models. I also built an Incubi gunner from Kabalite Warrior parts and a spare Incubi head. The trophy rack on the back of the gunner comes from the Wyches sprue. I feel that the three trophy racks give the Venom a really cool silhouette that looks very distinct from my first Venom. What do you think?

WIP: Garfy's Orc Armies on Parade Board #2

With the concept decided on, it's time for the all important "dry fit". Will the army actually fit on the board and where will I actually position the models. I've cut the boards to size and added some small raised areas. I've also constructed a tower from foamcore and did a balsa wood test panel to see how the wood effect will look. Be sure to check back soon when I'll be cutting the regiment holes in the foam core and trying to solve the issue of warped foam core.

WIP: Garfy's Orc Armies on Parade board #1

I've decided to enter Armies on Parade this year. This year, it's only a store level competition. There is no judging final at Games Day (or Warhammer Fest as it's now known). Judging for Armies on Parade will be held on 25th October. So I have just over a month. Read on to find out what I'm entering.
