Crone World Eldar



Well, locally we have the Los Deimos Campaign starting up in October, kicking off with a tournament, and ending with a bang in February at Game Summit, Ottawa's largest 40k tournament and Con. I thought what a perfect way to get my ass in gear painting my Eldar army I picked up off of Ca$h, who got it from Lothlann.

Since I cannot seem to do anything 'normal' except maybe my Tyranids, I decided to look into the fluff of the Eldar a bit to find a unique spin. Exodites would be cool, but I'm not a fan of painting Lizardman stuff, like Steg's and Carnasaurs, so thats out. Dark Eldar, well, since Jes Goodwyn is doing them, I'm pretty sure the models will kick a tonne of ass, so I came across a little story box on pg 54 of the Eldar codex, stating that the Eldar lament the loss of their original homeworlds, sucked into the Eye of Terror at the time of the Fall, and that these worlds were hellish landscapes, and I knew I had found what my theme would be: The twisted remains of the Fallen Eldar, gone over to Slaanesh and mutated beyond recognition under their armor.

The Tournament is Oct 24th, and is 1500 points, no special characters or allies allowed.

Here are some pics of what I've been working on so far, for my part in Tale of 5 Gamers:



Another shot of the Farseer, converted from the Bonesinger model.


One of 2 squads of 5 Fire Dragons, tentacles made from greenstuff. Same with the Eye.


Brightlance platform for my Guardians. This will likely be switched to a Scatterlaser. BS3 is balls.


Guardians. I came up with this scheme by firing up DoW's army painter, and hitting 'Random' a bunch of times. A lot of em came up with lime green, but I really liked this one when it came up. The bright purple I just used for tentacles rather than trim. Bright colors are from the Vallejo FLUO line.. awesome looking, the WORST paint to work with ever though. Seriously, painting with maple syrup is probably easier.

  1. Cool theme Den! You always seem to come up with a cool twist on your army. I saw a couple of pics of some stuff that you've added to your Squats since the last time I saw them (like two years ago) and they look great too.

  3. hahah thanks! Yeah Jay, my Squats are completely repainted, like I repainted my Crimson Fists over to Pre Heresy Nightlords, but you saw them in January.

  4. Painting with maple syrup is not only more difficult, it is also more delicious.

    Nice job!

    Here's the latest thing I worked on. I played in a tournament last weekend and got this little sweetie up and running for the plague priest to ride around on in style!



    A little slow on the linking, but there ya go. I'll email it to you... if I can find your email address here somewhere.

    Hmm.. you know.. especially with the flash on, that model seems a bit shiny.. it could use SOMETHING ... some kind of dulling agent...

Friday Night Fights & Project Ultra for WWPD

This week on the virtual battlefield, it was an all Infantry affair as I continued to test Rob's Canadians for the upcoming 2013 Historicon tournament. We rolled up 'No Retreat' as the mission. Seeing as we both field foot footsoldier lists, we had to roll over who would attack. I came up with the higher number after Rob rolled a big fat 1. After choosing which end he would defend, we began deployment and objective placements. Enjoy the video of the game and I happened to take some pics as well covering most of the action.

Looking at the board layout, Rob chose the best side from which to defend. No matter which way I wanted to approach from, there were going to be a lot of slow moving anti-tank guns and bog checks moving 4" at a time in order to get range on those dug in Canadians. I have to say after being bombarded nearly every turn, rocket batteries are the way to go for maximum effect on target.

I had a hard time breaking through all the terrain to get my guns go…

A forum?!

Who ever said imitation is the highest for of flattery? I guess I just did. So, I thought it was time we started our own forum, accessible by the public, to talk all things TableTop Tactician. Lists reviews, events/news, anything people want to chat about - so have at it!

So hope on over the to the Forum table and introduce yourself and get posting!

VERSION 4 Flames Test Game 1 DAK vs Desert Rats

"What do you say, old boy, shall we go kick the Jerries out of Africa?" Monty

Using the WWPD rules compilation, and stats and such from the preview copy of the rulebook that stores have, plus some from the latest WGI, we apply our Team Yankee prowess to run a Test game of Version 4.  TO make equivalent lists, I used V3 points for both (1340pts) and the DAK force comes out at 82 pts using V4 points.  Video with our opinions at bottom of article.   Lets see the lists:
