Enemy Kabal WIP

Well, despite moving all the way to Tokyo, I'm lucky enough to have a good friend who lives pretty close by and plays 40k, even if he does play he exact same army as I do. What are the chances?

The really cool effect on the canopy is a transfer. The sails on his raiders will be getting something similar, but not identical.

More pictures after the jump!

Talos WIP - 2

Did everyone have a good Christmas? I hope so!
Like many of you I'm sure, this was an opportunity to start (another) army project. Santa-cron was incredibly generous this year, and now I have an entire Necron force to assemble and paint.
Unlike my Dark Eldar, I'll be trying to speed my way through the unliving automatons, with a quick, basic colour scheme. Before I break out the plastic glue, I've been messing about with army lists and plotting the best way to exterminate all life from the galaxy.
The silver faceplate and red colour scheme kinda reminds me of Iron Man's Silver Centurion armour.
Don't worry though, my Dark Eldar are still very much on the paint table. Here's some progress I've been making on my Talos.

Unit Finished - Kabalite Warriors

Not too much to say about these guys. Finished squad of 10 Warriors, with Blaster and Dark Lance. There are a few more pictures of individual warriors from this squad in an old post.

Unit Finished - Reaver Jetbikes

The Reaver Jetbikes were one of the main reasons I fell in love with the new Dark Eldar range. The whole lot is pretty top notch, but I remember, during Games Day UK a few years back, being blown away by the bikes. (more pics after the jump)

Group shot! The large scenic bases will probably screw me over in the future but I think it's worth it.

Airbrushin' and a WIP Talos

Ok, so, not many posts recently, but there has been a lot of hobby progress behind the scenes. I've tidied up and based everything that's painted so far, and the whole thing is looking a bit like a proper army now. Pics incoming soon! I'm quite close to breaking the back of the lot of them as well; one more Warrior squad and a second raider and I'll have a good, fully painted core. Then I can start work on the more interesting units like my Incubi or maybe some Scourges.

Not pictured: 2 hours spent trying to figure out why the airbrush wasn't working properly. Again.

Anyway, this week I had a pretty good hobby day. I went over to my buddy's house, and got busy with his airbrush. The end result, a nice smooth coat of red on 2 raiders and a ravager. I also picked up a Venom and a Razorwing fighter, which unfortunately were not assembled in time to get a similar coat of red.

"Argle Grarble Grarble" - sound tactical advice from the brilliant mind of the Talos
I've been working on a Talos, as well. I'm quite convinced it will get murdered immediately every game, but I don't care. It's a fantastic kit.

'tis the Season

Festive cheer is inescapable, even in the dark corners of the webway.

My Wyches took a little time out from not having their bases painted to help me and Shiverz decorate the Digital Wastrel hobby cave.
