PostSubject: The Archon's Challenge Stage 2 : Troops   Wed Feb 08 2012, 20:02

The Second Stage of the Archon's Challenge.

Manpower. It is the key ingredient to building an army. Without strength of arms, nothing can be accomplished. Only the weak choose to talk, the strong will exert their will on the weak and subjugate them, as is proper for lesser races.

Now is the time to display our forces, so our prey may tremble in fear. Woe to the galaxy, let the hunt begin.


Stage 2 will be a single Troop available in the Dark Eldar Codex. Special characters options such as hellions are acceptable.
In addition, a transport may be included as well if you so choose. I will be doing transports and vehicles later, but if you are feeling bold, then by all means please include your unit's ride.

Entry is open until the14st of March 2012.

All participants must follow the rules as listed. See link

Contest rules

Submit one WIP shot to enter.

March18th  2012 all final pictures must be posted in the original thread.

Judging and comment will begin March 19. Best entry will be determined by March 26 2012.

A previously painted model may be used, but you must still enter a beginning WIP picture of the entered model.

All work must be your own. Honor system please.

No comments on anyone's work in this thread. They will be removed. If you wish to comment, please open a thread separately.

Good luck!

User ID: u1
Army Title: Duke Sliscus And The Sky Serpents
Troops Entry: Wyches (Cult of the TBA)




I was quite sad not to finish my Haemonculus but he was recently removed from a list so wouldn't have made sense to paint him just yet. So, I've always liked Wyches, they were my favourite thing about the DE 12 years ago and they're still up there today. The Wyches I submit to you are a unit that I have been working on and off for a while, these are the earliest and only shots of them that I have (the Hekatrix on the left accompanies the unit).

I have tried to make every unit in my Sky Serpents army different to exaggerate the notion of different cults and kabals flocking to Duke's banner. These are the Cult of the TBA (you can help me decide on the name), a barbaric sect who's only quest is to hone their prowess against the deadliest opponents in the galaxy. By following Sliscus they constantly have access to the best drugs this side of Nightsound Ghulen and are the first through the webway on any realspace raid.

A great looking WIP progress. I see lots of attention to detail on the bases, and some good conversions. One thing I love seeing is the base work on the raiders/venoms/ravagers. Sadly so often they are left bare when so much can be done with them.

I am disappointed that the finished pictures were not posted up here. However I do realize that time is a slippery thing and am looking forward to seeing the final unit photos when they are completed. Hint hint Wink

Troop Entry: A Truckload of Hellions!

I have 5 more coming in the mail. Might include these if I'm feeling frisky...
Minor Progress Shot:

Can't believe I pulled it off:



Didn't have time to add the little tribal markings in teal on the skyboards, but I'm surprised that I got even this much done in the last 24hrs.

Troop Entry: Warrior Squad*

*These will actually be used as Trueborn but as it's cold as f**k here, I am unable to do any priming. I will still have the models for a legal troop choice.

Here's the first WIP.


A slightly progressed WIP. I've figured out most of the final colors now so it's just a matter of getting paint to the models. All I need is time and light.


I am taking a short break from working on them to paint up a jetbike for the first round of the iron painter challenge. That's due March 5th so I should have plenty of time to finish these guys.

Making good progress on the squad now that round one of iron painter is finished. I think I've got most of my colors figured out for all the parts of the models.

Bah! Camera Problems. Finished, but no pictures; my battery's dead. I'll post to the main painting forum when I get it working again.

I suppose I'm not allowed to post more pics. So to be fair I'll wait with loading up more stuff until judging is finished.

"Soldaan Darkclaw and his space born Black Dawn war band have specialized in the close quarter hell of boarding actions. Once the initial cannon fodder has been thinned out in the first wave it is normally Xanchi, and his so called Corsair's who are the first to being the hunt through the metal labyrinth. Soldaan has found that few of his syberites are worth restoring to life, but Xanchi has been reborn time and time again."

Army Name: Cult of 1000 Needles
Troops Entry: 9 Wyches (Hex w/ Agoniser, 1 Hydra Gauntlet), 1 Raider




First Unit for my army, so lets see how it works out!

=Update=

Finished as much as i have time for. I still need to finish off the raider by adding runes and trophies, but its table worthy.
Basically i just ran out of time ^^ Also the raider guys eye glow will be changed to blue.

I also though the turf i used didnt have enough contrast, and i still havent recieved my new batch, which is why there is grass on only 1 base.

Kabal of the Secret Blade.

I will disqualify myself right now as this is a finished squad as I did not take any WIP pics. I will have to start getting in to the habit of doing that. Possible redemption is to be found in that I have not begun work on the Raider yet.



Wych squad of 10.
Hekatrix with Agoniser is the only upgrade

Five days... Nope. I doubt I can get this done. Really been hard-pressed for free time this month. Sad

I'll still try my best, maybe get at least half finished. Are they still eligible as the final entry if only half of the originally posted number?

I'd like to enter the newest members to my Kabal/flesh Carnival (Tacit Tongue/Silence), The Wracks, but no conversions to speak of and considering I'm using them more of an escort for my Haemi, I'll wait for the next contest.(super run on sentence, but it was worth it)
