Dark Eldar to Dark Elves
« on: November 15, 2012, 09:34:05 PM »
I've had a Dark Eldar army for a while now, but I don't play 40K. So I've been turning it into a fantasy Dark elf army. These are some of the work in progress pictures. The only model that's finished is the cauldron of blood. I'm concentrating on just getting it tournament legal right now. Then Ill work on making everything look really good. So you will notice most of the models have unpainted or only primed arms.

First the center piece of the army, My cauldron of blood. Its made with a Mortis engine, some foam board and a few Dark Eldar witches. The statue of Kain is a Hordes miniature. Great because the scale is a little bit bigger then Warhammer.

Next is the Nasty part of my army.
3 Units of 6 Shades

Each one has some cool stuff on the bases, I wanted it to all look like my army is raiding a farming village, so lots autumn farm stuff

Witch elves. They are pretty much the same in fantasy and 40K. They just need some touch ups

And my favorite part of the whole army and one of the most broken things in the dark elf army book. Heroes on Pegasus.

Children yet, the tale to hear, Eager eye and willing ear, Lovingly shall nestle near.  In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream --Lingering in the golden gleam --Life, what is it but a dream?

Thanks guys. I know they still need a lot of work, but I'm excited with what I've got so far. Ill have them "legal" for the Lost Legion Tournament. Then its all detail work until TempleCon. By then I want to have the army and a display board finished.

I got My Dark Riders Based and partially painted



And a picture of the whole army. Just waiting on those spear men bits in the mail...

Finally got all the bits in the mail that I needed to assemble the spear men unit. Got a few layers of paint on them. Now I just need to do some detail work.
