Hello Everyone,

to motivate myself I decided to start this PLOG where I will document ideas and progress of all the plans I have with various Aeldari models. Get ready for some strange stuff...

First thing I decided to do is a Skyweaver. But not just any Skyweaver. Kitbashed from a Windrider and a Hellion. Driver will be a Reaver and the second dude a Hellion obviously.

This is the rough kitbash. Will add some more details and riders, but I think its not bad...





Critique and comments welcome!

Thanks guys!

Well same thing would work with Reaver bikes obviously, but I had a box of Windriders lying about and none of the Reavers to spare. So this is the first take. I will get Gangs too and do a few squads of them later. Right now Windriders are better because they provide a flat surface to paint with Harlie stuff. Very Happy

OFC I will need to solve the weapons as obviously I have none, but it should not be too difficult.

Damn! Another archon spotted my prototype flying around! Very Happy
I just had to think what to do with all those Hellion sprues I have. More uses coming... :-D

EDIT:
Few points:
- The vanes on the windriders need to be cut obviously
- Fill the front grill of the skyboard with greenstuff so it provides better contact surface for the rear of the bike. Let harden overnight.
- Use greenstuff to put the bike's larger thruster on the Skyboard's back
- Drill a 3mm hole in the grill of the Skyboard - snugfits the stud at the rear of the bike.
- Needs some pressure to glue properly so I recommend gluing on the thin parts like steps and steering at a later stage.

I really do like these Skyweaver conversions. The Hellion bits really sharpen and make the usually boring looking Eldar bikes into something far more intimidating. Good job man!

Thanks. I am not done with them too. Very Happy I will add some more details to make the original Skyweavers shudder. Masque of pure tragedy coming... Very Happy

Neat! I love it when people make themed army versions of allied units. You've got me wondering now as I've got tons of Hellion bits left over from Gangs of Commorragh Wink plus, I've always thought that Ynnari Strength From Death is precisely how Power From Pain should have worked from the get-go...

Hello my Dark Kin, I am here to update the PLOG. It has been a while since my life has a bad habit to intervene, but I finally got to make a group of kabalites and here are some samples:




Obviously, they are not finished and need some polishing, but I think the theme came out quite allright. I was aiming for another colour than black, while keeping it dark and sinister. The second photo is purposefuly overburned so the imperfections can be seen better for your critique, which is as always welcome.

I have not given up on the Skyweavers, just wanted to find my colour theme before I finish them. Stay tuned. :-)

Loving your painting scheme!
The colours somehow remind me of 80s Decepticons Smile
Do you use metal colours for your green?
Looks awesome anyhow!
