See: http://www.thedarkcity.net/t6171-best-dark-eldar-models-dioramas-from-around-the-web#125213

That's right, Harlequins are coming!  So, you if you also want to be among the best-dressed on the tabletop, you better start practising your stripes and checkerboard patterns.

Make it a vow, or call it a threat - tell us how you plan to kick-off 2015.  Painting, converting, kitbashing ..... whatever turns your crank!  Everyone who succeeds in their daring devil-do will get their name highlighted in TDC's patent-pending-barring-trademark-lawsuit Commorraghan purpleTM!


Denizens and their vows for the month of January (completed in purple):
________________________________________________________________________________

[/color]Dragontree - finish painting 5 Blasterborn, and paint 3 Blood Angel Terminators.[/color]

[/color]Vasara - assemble and prime a Cerastus Knight-Acheron.[/color]

[/color]The Burning Eye - finish Urien Rakarth, 10 Warriors, 1 Raider, 1 Venom and 1 Storm Raven 5 Scourges.[/color]

Count Adhemar - paint 1 Eldar Fire Dragon Exarch and hopefully 2 Eldar Hornets.

Sky Serpent - paint 5 Scourges.

Plastikente - paint Mrs. Plastikente's Voidraven bomber, 3 converted Wracks and 3 converted Beastmasters.

Average Joe - assemble 10 Wracks and paint 5 of them.

Evil Space Elves - finish painting 1 Knight Errant, assemble and paint 1 Knight Castigator, paint 1 CWE Spiritseer and paint a test Guardian.

Massaen - paint 10 Tactical Marines and either another 10 or 10 Heresy World Eaters Recon Marines.

Finish the blasterborn I spectacularly failed with last month and perhaps try to paint 3 Blood Angel Terminators...

As you all know, I am the most lethargic, slowest painter going. However some friends and I have started one of those 'Tale of' blogs with the idea of doing 200pts fantasy or 150pts 40k. Hopefully this will help me.

This month I am painting 5 Scourges.

Never got round to making vows in advance before, but now seems a good time to give it a try. I'll go for 1 Voidraven Bomber (Christmas present from my wife Very Happy ), 3 converted wracks and 3 converted beastmasters.

Assemble 10 Wracks and paint half.

Derp...I'll see if I can't resize the image sometime later, but proof that I'm working on my monthly vow.

Knights:
-Finish painting Knight Errant from last month
-Assemble and paint Knight Castigator

Eldar:
-Paint a Spiritseer
-Paint a test Guardian

I'm almost done with the Errant from last month, and will be painting Eldar for the Independent Characters Hobby Progress Challenge this year. I managed to paint around 6,000pts of 30K World Eaters last month and hope to have similar results with my CWE Twisted Evil

Warriors done! And quite a bit of progress on the bastion I hadn't intended to paint this month...

It's amazing how progress inspires progress.

And plans. That bastion is on a foot square base board. Originally I'd planned about 7 or 8 to slot into pre-built holes of the board in my garage.

The plans have now changed, and I'm just going to construct a modular board using 24 of those type of tiles. So now I've got an order to the terrain company, plus a trip to the DIY store planned, as if painting an 1850 pts blog wars army by June wasn't enough for me!

On the plus side - urien is now finished - I'll do a pic tomorrow.
Venom is getting really close too, just a few bits on the gunner and the pilot left to do.

Venom now finished

Voidraven is done Smile





Hoping to finish off the base tomorrow night so that I can field it in a game on Thu (I have a self-imposed rule that I won't field models that aren't painted and based).  Not that I have high hopes for it on the table, but it is a beautiful model...

This month has been absolutely and incredibly awful and simultaneously been pretty good.

First the awful.

I left my True Kin in my carry case on the bus by accident a week or so ago, just after building it all so I could play a game. Despite much searching it has not turned up Sad

This has left me with nothing but a bits box of dark eldar bit left and thus I am unlikely to return to the True Kin for a long time. Both due to emotional and financial investment required.


And now the good news.

My girlfriend has previously never bought me models as she thinks I spend enough anyway. But in an amazing attempt to cheer me up she copied my wishlist down that is tacked above my hobby desk and literally bought the most expensive thing on there for me.

Which was a Cerastus Castigator.


This went a long long way to cheering me up.

I built it last night (and glued the crap out of myself in the process) and will put pictures up tonight.

In the other part of my blog I have nearly finished my terminators but motivation was lacking before the Knight appeared. Still hoping to get them done but I'm still feeling pretty mopey on the hobby front.


Anyway, sorry for the long post here, I just felt the need to vent and mourn publically.

@Plastikente - amazing job on that beautiful bird!

@The_Burning_Eye - so much productivity!!!! Beautiful productivity!

@Evil Space Elves - I love the errant! I am terrified about painting my knight and all of yours are just so wow.

Mate that's awful - I honestly don't know how I'd react if I did something like that - you may have noticed how I fumed when I cocked up the varnish job a while back, so I think you deserve to be allowed to mope about for a bit!

@Dragontree I am so sorry to hear about your Dark Eldar. Sadly, the cases we store our miniatures in look like they hold things that are valuable to non-gamers. I can only imagine what a non-gamer thinks as they open the case and find plastic toy soldiers. Do you have the stomach to collect the army again?

Thank you so much. I can honestly say that you are in for a treat with the Castigator. I'm 1/3 of the way done painting mine and having a blast Twisted Evil

@ Dragontree: Very sorry to hear that, went through the same thing, forgot my army case on the train.
It was terrible and i was very close to throwing the rest of my stuff away, Evil or Very Mad but i decided to be a good archon and use the pain to resurrect my army and the later models look even better.
It's 4 months ago and still hurts sometimes, but i'm glad i stayed with 40k and Dark Eldar.
Happy to hear that you got such a nice consolatigator xD
