It Is Good To Be Back... With a Completed Archon
I have completed the Archon for my fledgling Dark Eldar force over the last month. I think the model itself was awesome, but painting him... I just did not feel the want to keep going back to him to finish him off. Unfortunately for me, I just cannot start something else while leaving another thing unfinished, so here we are with a finished Archon almost a month after starting him. It also did not help that my painting room has been so warm recently that my paints have started drying up pretty quickly after mixing them on my palette.
But hey-ho, there is much more to look forward to now than moaning about not wanting to paint one model and the temperature is a little too warm! There are new rumours out seemingly daily at the moment regarding the impending Chaos Marine Codex, models, Dark Angels, Starter Sets, release schedules for models for other armies. In short, there is a lot happening in the 40k world between now and the end of the year, hell, even next summer based on some rumours. It is going to be awesome.
Outside of the Chaos releases planned for this year, I am looking forward to pushing my Dark Eldar army on a bit. Now I have finished the Archon, I will be moving on to a Talos Pain Engine, converting a couple of Rat Ogres into Grotesques, generally aiming to get a completed Dark Eldar army to go alongside the Space Wolves I have already finished and the Chaos/Slaanesh Marines army I have in the pipeline.
So, very much to look forward to, it is just a shame that I only have one spare weekend between now and the start of October to get stuck in to all the upcoming new releases. At least I will have my weekday evenings!
Having crushed the Space Wolf force outside the city to prevent them interfering further down the road, the Eldar were ready to proceed ...
Arjac from the Space Wolves Codex Having finished painting my own Arjac Rockfist, I thought I would use this post to look at the concept ...
Completed now are the two Rat Ogre/Grotesque conversions I have done to add to my Dark Eldar forces. These two were very simple to paint...
I found a big lot on Ebay the other day. It was listed as various bits of Chaos Space Marines but was largely unspecific and the pictures ...
