Not sure I've added up the points.  

2 Archons (one *was* converted as Vect)
Succubus
Lelith
Urien
2 Haemis

30 Warriors
20 Wyches

10 Wracks
10 Incubi
15 Trueborn
5 Mandrakes

5 Hellions (usually used as beastmasters)
5 Khymera (conversions)
15 Scourges
18 Reavers

2 Talos/Cronos

4 Venoms
4 Raiders
2 Razorwings
1 Voidraven

3 Ravagers
2 Reapers
1 Tantalus

Everything listed above is at least base coated.  Probably 90% of it is "done".  Done usually means about 15 different paints applied.. Smile  Although I'm really considering repainting a few as I've finally decided on an army wide scheme.  Also there are another 20 warriors to assemble - I just haven't needed them.  I'll see if I can put together a pic sometime this week.

Turns out the mssive game im having is now vs GK, and my total list, with a few more bits added is actually 5500!!
I will get some pics of it, as both armies are mostly painted, so should look good

My army comes in at about 4000 pts. I have about 400 pts. of that painted. I am definitely a player first, modeller second, and painter a very distant third. The beautiful models make it easy to buy and assemble. Then I don't want to mess them up with my sub-par painting skills.

GK is a pretty easy army for us to table. When I'm facing them, anything with "Cleansing Flame" is a high priority target.

So there I was pulling out some models from my carry case to work on a re-basing project I've been putting off for a while and it occurred to me (sadly) that I should really pull the Wyches out of my case on a more permanent basis - because...well, I'm just not going to be fielding them so why waste the space lugging 30 or so Wyches around?

So, with that in mind I thought I'd take a snapshot of the Wyches and then I thought - darn, why not snag an army pic while you're here? You often ask others to do that, so you should too!

It's not my full collection, it's not even the fully painted collection, but it's definitely a lot of points of painted DE in one spot.




Yes, that is about 15 Blaster toting models hanging out there.


Some of my wyches...not to be seen on a tabletop anytime soon I fear.


My favorite wych model - *sob*

Maybe I could use her as a 'counts as' Lelith? Of course I also have that Lelith model I've been wanting to field...hurm...


Talos the way they were meant to be.


The Coven forces are getting a bit more play now, though less for the Haems.




Say what you will, the old Grot models (now Wracks) still are awesome models.


"My arm is flayed open and I have a tube pumping drugs down/up to/from my stomach. I am awesome!"


Also, I poke fun at them a lot for what GW has done to them, but I am Incubi love for life!


All total on the table you are looking at;

3 Razorwings
1 Dais
3 Ravagers
1 Ravager/Raider optional build.
9 Raiders
1 DE Revenant (now more looking Wraithknight size, I suppose)
3 Venoms
16 RJBs (one is a Haem one is an Archon/Archite)
3 Haems
4 Grots
10 Wracks
2 Pain Engines
30 Wyches
15 Scourges
6 Khymarae
4 Razorwing Flocks
1 Clawed Fiend
10 Hellions/Beastmasters (1 is a Baron)
55 Warriors/Trueborn with an assortment of weaponry (1 is a counts as Duke)
8 Incubi
1 Archon
1 Dracon (now run as a succubus)
1 Succubus

Those wyches going away are definitely going to make the case lighter.
I'll still bring at least 1 Succubus though, I suspect.

That is what I want to see, Army pics are certainly a good addition to this!

Thor665-You need more of the old Taloi Twisted Evil

I'm in the middle of a four day weekend....tempted to do the army shot. With the old 3rd edition "heritage" models I'm at roughly 9-10,000pts painted.

I only have the 2 - never had any reason to try to run more than that.

How many points are you counting that Void Raven as eating up Laughing

You have tempted me! Here is my 95% painted army, just 10 Wracks to finish and 5 Grotesque converts that are nearly there!

The whole Army:


Something like: 10 Trueborn, 25/30 Warriors, 33 Wyches, 5 Incubi, 1 Archon, 2 Haemocules, Lelith, 10 Scourges, 12 Reavers, 5 Hellions, 4 Raiders, 4 Venoms, 2 Ravagers, 2 Razorwings, Talos, Chronos, 10 Wracks, 5 Grotesques and 5 Mandrakes! Lost 2 Venoms to the cruel foot god a while back and have never fully recovered Sad

The Archon and is Carebears


Lelith and her bloodbrides


My most favourite Dracon


The Dark Artisan (Chaos renegade jobbie)


The Up and coming Grot squad and my "sculpting" attempt.

Only 8 transports? How do you even live? Laughing

I do like that Dracon model though, it is very sweet!
I also want a few Warspear Grots myself - I like the mixed menagerie look I have going and also want 4 more, so... Wink

Haha I guess I have to make do! To the web way portal!
The warspear ones are not bad to work with, easy to cut and trim and the talos stuff fits well! Also miles cheaper Razz

I can't contend with Thor, but here is (most of) my Kabal of the Bloodspray Corsairs (and friends) as it stood when the new Codex came out.

Kabal

Malys, Vect and Sliscus - all just Archons now
1 Sslyth
Drazhar + 6 old and 5 new Incubi
38 Warriors (9 Blasters, 3 Dark Lances, 2 Splinter Cannons and 1 Shredder) [I also have about 20 more painted Warriors in deep storage]
1 Razorwing
1 Dais/Ravager
1 Venom
1 old and 1 new Raider

Cult

1 Lelith, 1 Kruellagh (used as a succubus), 2 more succubi
3 x 6 Reavers, w/ Blaster and Heat Lance in each squad
16 Wyches [with 4 more painted and 8 unpainted in deep storage - they're not likely to come out any time soon Crying or Very sad ]
5 Hellions
1 Venom
1 old and 1 new Raider
1 Void Dragon and 1 Kharybdiss - I have 4 converted Beastmasters to go with these "beasts of the Arena", but they're not painted yet, so not in the phot.

Coven

1 Urien Rakarth, 1 new Haemonculus [+ 2 old Haemonculi, not pictured and in deep storage]
5 Grotesques
20 Wracks (4 w/ Liquifiers)
Talos
Cronos
1 Venom
1 old Raider

Since the new Codex came out, I have been on a spending spree, so on my workstation are: 5 Scourges, 5 Mandrakes, 2 Medusae, 2 (converted) Haemonculi, 1 Grotesque.  Pictures will follow once they're painted in my project thread.  If you want to see any of my models in more detail, they are all on my Flickr page (via link in my sig).

I'm going to hazard a guess as to why you got one more Grotesque, I have the same problem myself, but I'm trying to find a lone warspear to tie it in with the rest of the squad!

Respected elders, those armies are looking hella fine.

Thor, Re: Lelith, since you'll find no worthy opponents my suggestion is to split your force in half, and wage a war of two Leliths, one against the other. Fluff: someone wants to take her job, so they arranged an accident on a raid, body parts were collected and returned to Lelith's favorite haemonculus, but it was such a soup of genetic material that he wasn't able to separate it all, after consideration, he split it into batches, thinking that

Grub, that dracon is a showstopper. Also, I really like the haemie and those grots (are those bulked up wracks?).

Plastikente - if the Void Dragon and Kharybdiss were legit for beastpacks, I doubt I'd bother fielding anything else!

And the rest of you, those numbers are sexy too...

Personally, I'm representing the Trueborn babies, still pooping in their little thorny baby diapers. Almost everything I've got is at least black basecoat + bronze armor, but I've been really struggling to find a color scheme that works with the dominant bronze. With no upgrades I have 1083p built:

19 Kabalite warriors....and another Kabalite warrior wielding two venom blades (and I worked so hard on that reversed grip  )
16 Wyches
12 Reavers
6 hellions and one..................................improperly equipped hellion (damn you GW)
5 Scourges
5 Mandrakes
2 Raiders
2 Venoms

And another 209p partially-built:

4 Wyches
3 Hellions
1 Razorwing Jetfighter (but, but, but, I want to paint the pilot!)

Many thanks. Best part is he was made out of scraps of raider passengers and spares so no extra money spent!same with the two "bloodbrides" with Lilith (the first dark eldar model I did). As all the kits are compatable you can make up a few unique models fairly easily as you accumulate bits!

The Haemocules is a renegade chaos sorcerer from forgeworld that I found in my mates bits box which he gave me and the Grots are conversions from another game. They are called Everblight Warspears and they are great Grot models with a bit of trimming, green stuff and spare Talos/Chronos bits which fit perfectly. They also come in packs of five and are miles cheaper than the games workshop break dancing model!
