PostSubject: Dark Eldar (no special kabal) for a upcoming Swedish tournament.   Fri Sep 16 2011, 22:43

Hey everyone.

I had the opportunity to be invited to one of swedens largest tournaments in 40k. It is a team tournament like ETC but with a composition system but still lots of prestige. The team i have joined is made up of former Warhammer Fantasy Players which i myself also am so we are not really aiming for the top. We are mot aiming to have a fun weekend and getting to know some new people, atleast i am.

So far i have had a couple of test games with my first 1500p list that managed to land on Comp 70. The limits to enter the tournament is to have atleast 20 in comp score and the highest is 90 so 70 is as pretty kind list imo. As i don't have any tournament experience so far (will be going to my first in just a couple of weeks) this is even more exiting.

I thought i could begin with posting the version of the list i am trying out at the moment. I will also post a link to the comp system for those who are interrested in reading it, otherwise some choices might seem just odd to you.


This is what i'm playtesting and it seems like it will be what i will be bringing along aswell.


Archon: Djin blade, blaster 95
Court: 1 Lhameaen, 1 medusae, 1 sslyth, 1 ur-ghul in venom with 2 SC 140

5 warriors: 1 blaster in venom with 2 SC 125
5 warriors: 1 blaster in venom with 2 SC 125
5 warriors: 1 blaster in raider with dark lance and flickerifeld 130
7 wyches: nothing, mounted in a raider with disintigrator 130
10 warriors: dark lance 115

6 scourges: 2 haywire blasters 152
6 scourges: 2 heat lances 156

razorwing jetfighter: 2 lances, 4 mono, splinter cannon, flickerfield 165
razorwing jetfighter: 2 lances, 4 mono, splinter cannon, flickerfield 165


Total: 1498
Comp: 70

Link to the comp system, RT-Comp System

So thats the list i am working with. This log however isnt ment to be discussing what other think is good or bad, atleast not that the point. I have the list posted in the Army list section aswell and there we can take care of that. Here i will post battle reports, pictures on models that are WIP and some thoughts around my playing with the list.

Feel free to comment, i'm just happy yo have something to reply to.


Here comes a few pictures of what has been made so far. Some of the photos was so bad that i wont even publish them. But the rezorwing, some venoms, a haemonculus, and wyches can i post right now. I will try to get a few better photos during this weekend. Will probably niot be hard either

These are all WIP

Haemonculus:


Wyches:


Venoms:


Razorwing Jetfighter:
[/img]


So this is the beginning of this army. Most stuff will be brought along to the tournament for the first weekend of October so i don't have alot of time but it will be done by that.

The vehicles are getting a shade from black to green with a poison spot colour. The infantry will be black/white with the poison green as spot colour. TT is what i'm aiming for so i'm sure it will be ok.

So throw in a few posts here so i dont have to double post every single day, the moderators are probably getting tired of me by now Smile



I will try to be as effetive as possible with updating here so might someone have a little readin Also i have a blog that is being written in Swedish at the moment but if i get a couple of visitors who want english context i'l change to that. Just be sure toleave a message there so i know that there is someone looking for english there at all.

Allright. This will have to be enough for a first post in this log. But i promise a few more pictuesi of better quality ready for you.

A couple of cens from my part.


EDIT I made a small misstake with the log and included battle reports here aswell. There are a specific forum section for that so i will be posting links to it if i post any pictures from the games i have played.

This post might be a bit odd now since ive just removed a major part of it but just rush down a bit and look at some pics and keep the comments coming, its fantastic.

The paint scheme on your Venoms and Razorwing is excellent, it looks spectacular!

Can't wait to see more of your army as it gets painted.

Thanks it is wonderful to hear. I can't wait to see the full Entourage to the Archon either.

Somehow the fading from black to green is magic, i don't know what the thing is with green but it works by itself.

What to you think about green boats along with white/black footsoldierswith just the poison green as a spotcolour just to bring it all togehter. This will be made via CC weapons, bases etc.




EDIT

I took a few more photos of the razorwing a few minutes ago just so you can see how it fades from black to green. Hopefully the photos is good enough.

I really like the green and the spots as well.
I think it looks like some of your work is really hastened and some is not.
Especially the metal on the Raiders/Ravagers needs more work.
I personally don't like that much metal, but that's just me...

(First, I didn't manage to post on your blog, but this is what I intended to write)

OK.

So this is a great looking start you have here. its simple, and yet so well executed that is leaves you just staring at it all.

its hard for me to tell too much with the infantry since they are not close ups.

Overall very nice.

Hey and thanks for the replys.

The army is not finished at all so there are work still to be done.























EDIT I moved the battle report to the Realspace raid section for those who are interrested. I left the pictures here atleast just so i have something to show up and how the progress is going and how it looks on the tabletop.

Wait, is that a Cleveland Indians fan? Those exist? Very Happy

Really like the green-to-black scheme and can't wait to see some of your infantry close up. After seeing so many beautiful Razorwing Jet Fighters on this site I know it won't be long before I give in and paint one too.

Your Razorwing really looks terrific on the tabletop. Luv it, almost tempted to change mine!

Well atleast i own the models but i am not the painter. The painter is a good friend of mine who i contracted to make this army to a higher standard since i neither have the time or knowledge on how to make things look like this.

None the less i will still continune to update with more pictures of the army as it comes along and battlereports. I will also do a little "Painters summary" later on with what he has to say about the army and how it was to paint.

I am really glad you enjoy seeing it, you can imagine how spectacular it feels to bring it to the table then ^^

The infantry will be coming on photos aswell and pretty soon. We made a new descission yesterday that insteed of going only monochrome on infantry with the "poison green" on weapons as spot colour we will have the poison green hair and leave the weapons neutral with metal.

This is just a picture of one of the venoms but it shows somewhat how the infantry might look, it will be more detailed but the green hair atleast shows.

Great game. Felt a bit shamed to use such a blend of models, but the glory days when i could buy whatever i wanted before i tested it is long gone.

I think we both where a bit to defensive, at least me with the orks. I should have pressed on a bit more not giving you to much options to shoot at. I guess am a bit to much of a Black Templar player still, I will convert soon enough =)

Looks awesome, I love the Venoms, they look great next to the Razorwings.

I don't like the plastic cross shaped flying stand that's included at all.

Don't know why GW made it so bulky, I think you could swap it out for a brass rod. I did it for all my flyers and it can easily support a Razorwing... It's too distracting when you have such a nicely painted flyer... But that might be just me Smile

Nope, not just you.

And the plastic cross-shaped part that is made to cover the hole in the flyer makes a perfect top for a steel rod to fit into the cross-shaped hole.
(or just glue it in and drill a hole as normal.)

I totally agree with you regarding the flying stand. Now for fanatic it will probably be used since there is not much time left. But for BSK they will be gone and something else will be there insteed. Perhaps a brass rod or why not do some sort of terrain piece that it has landed on? After all it is a skimmer.

Well see what happens after fanatic has been done.

Today i think a few more models have got some colour on them, i'l try to take some photos the next couple of days.


EDIT There has been some crazy editing since i moved the battlereps with some pictures to the Realspace raid forum section. But every time i post any pictures from a game i will include the link to the Realspace Raid log, if anyone like to read how the battles turns out.

Realpace Raid log



2nd EDIT


I just got a MMS from the painter who has been doing some work earlier today on the venoms and also just started out on one of the raiders who we discussed who we would bind them together with the venoms. The pictures isnt that great but it shows the theme atleast, let me know what you think.

RAIDER

Your army is looking great, the spot pattern your painter is using looks really good.

My minor criticism is that I feel the edge highlighting on the Razorwing in the bat rep images is a bit too white, I don't think the black needs to be highlighted up that high (although is it just those pictures?). I'd also look at a different colour for the sails.

Really impressive though, props to you for coming out and saying you don't have the time to paint but sharing what someone else is doing for you.

Ahoy.

We discussed the sails earlier today and i am not sure i agree with you. I think the spotted green on the sails will look very good along with how the raider is being faded from black to green. But to remind you there are still things left to be painted and one tournament is in about 1.5 week so the sails will remain green for this tourny. But we also disused doing the sails some other colours and maybe even trying some transfers out so he can do his magic in photoshop or any other program.

And that i share he's work feels just right. I wont take credit for what i am not doing myself. He on the other hand should still get it since he is making a wonderful job here. I did read a few posts from this thread to him over the phone earlier and he was very happy that people enjoy his work. Just hope he comes around and joins up on the site and writes a few things down himself.

The black and green really works for me, even on the sails. Painting the sails another color would look awkward as it would be the only place besides the metal where your vehicles are not black and green. Simple, beautiful, and quite striking. Roll with it.

And tell your friend to get on this site already! His work is beautiful.

Hehe i already told him to do that, well see if happens.

regarding the sails, they will not be changed. We discussed it today at the gaming club and i really want it this way.

Anyhow, i got a few more pictures for you. Still there is no infantry ready for photoing mainly because the painters has them at home and working on them there. But as soon as i get the chance to photo them i will post them here. Until then you will have to endure the endless amount of pictures on vehicles.

In one of these photos there is a Ravager. That one is not in the BSK list but the paint job that he is doing right now is really for the upcoming tournament Fantasia Fanatic, BSK is just one month later so there will be a few additions to that list.












There we go. More to come in the next couple of days i hope.

Once again thanks. Hopefully some infantry starts to become painted this weekend or so. Would be fun to post a couple of pictures of that.

I am truly glad to see so many encouraging and kind words about my fumbling, half-drunk stumblings with the paintbrush. I must admit that i think that the models are coming along nicely. I was after a poisonous, chemical look and for me the green kinda brings that to mind. The "crazy scientist green" so to speak. Now of course there are still things to be done, the metal needs to be given some work, and there are a few details (skulls, chains and spikes mainly) and crewmembers (conveniently glued into hard to reach spots by Teknistmajjan) and then ofc i have to do something about those godawful clear plastic bases...and then i need to go over the sails since they are in the wrong shade of green. Call it an unfortunate lack of planning.

This weekend i will try to complete most of the wyches and warriors so that i can sleep without having to wake up to Teknistmajjans screams of rage every morning. Looking forward to paint the flying dudes on "green goblin flying thingys", i forget what they are called. Awesome models whatever they are called.

Now i am off to check out some of the other cool stuff you have on this forum. It is like porn, for nerds.

Welcome Darth.

And for those who did not get it, this is the man who i contracted to perform the magic onto my emo furture elves.

Was a bit shocked over the mms last night when i thought you would had just made one step on the green for the boats and all of them were glossed and ready. But then again you have a insane style of painting and i have never seen anyone doing it with your speed, remember the orks?

Anyhow, welcome.

What a fantastic colour scheme!
It's gloomy and somehow mystical at the same time. The army looks awesome on the battlefield, I love it!

The venom hulls are going to be glossed also, right? I think it really makes the hulls stand out more. Flat black hulls look a little dull on DE vehicles and I really like the Raiders that DP's glossed for you.

All vehicles will be glossed, and i will probably gloss the "green goblin flying surfboards" too, makes it all look better i think. Somehow it looks good on eldar stuff, but less so on space marines and IG for instance. Feels more "high tech" or something.
