Skritch the Mutilator

May well be working on this guy again in the future but I'm going to leave as-is for now. One of my favorite models ever. (Camera died at some point so I took another pic with my droid. Too low-quality for me; won't be using that again.)

Dark Eldar Warriors and Beastmasters

This weeks post is a little late, normally I like to post stuff over the weekend, but I got distracted over the past few days and couldn't find the time to sit down at the computer.

From the complete lack of comments, I guess no one really cared for the Wychs from the last post. So, I thought it would be a good time to post up my other Warrior squad. They are kitted out with the same gear as the other unit-- the Blaster and Splinter Cannon combo. All together, I have 3 completed infantry units now. All there is left to paint?
3 vehicles and my 2 homunculus. Then everything will be sitting pretty a 1,000 points.

Finally, we have my Beast-master pack. I love this unit. It's a prefect excuse to use some of my older Xenos models on the table. The Snake-men have been posing a Kroot Hounds in my Tau Strike-force, while the Star-Spawn Wannabe has been sitting pretty on the shelf, after the disbanding of my very unlucky/short-lived Hrud army. All that needed painted was the trio of Hellions to act a Beast-masters until the actual models are released.

Thanks to new book, these models can take on new roles and add some uniqueness to my army. Besides, for all the work I did on these models, they deserve more game time and I plan on playing my new army for the most of next year. They will count as Khymeras and a Klawed Fiend then will deploy out of a Warp Portal carried by one of the Homunculus.

The project is entering the final phases!

Dark Eldar Wyches

Instead of boring you all with more Warriors this week. I decided to change it up and post the Wych squad that I have been slowly painting. The unit itself contains 9 models commanded by an over-dressed Succubus.

I still need to pick-up a Homunculus to fill out the unit. After that little addition, the ladies will be all set to go. Over the next week... if I'm lucky, I'm hoping to pick up the rest of the army and get to work on the "Raider" portion of the project.

Lastly, a big thanks to everyone for all the positive feedback and attention on the project.  My blog is a quiet one, so every comment and Reader mean allot to this old Hack and his paintbrush.

Thanks again, Everybody!

Even more Dark Eldar Warriors

Its been another quiet week around the painting table. My time spent finishing the other half of Warriors from the last post. The work on all ten near is completion and soon the unit will been done! 

I went with the Blaster and Splinter Cannon combo that seems so popular these days. I also skipped out on the squad leader at this time. The list is only 1,000 points. Its better to get bodies instead of upgrades when it comes to the smaller games.   

These ladies are still in need of attention, but I'm rather pleased with the progress so far. I'm also hoping to snag my first Raider later this week. I'm way too excited to get my hands on that kit, but at the same time, I'm a little nervous to see how the paint scheme will play out on the model.
