They look great!

I really dig the use of the scourge heads for that extra Bird-like effect.

These fellows look great. I dig the markings on the Scourge helms. The bases are also very well done. Good to see you finally paint something up!

Oh this is awesome! I have been thinking about doing a Duke army for a while now. This is great inspiration, you are an amazing painter too.

Are you planning to Deep Strike a lot of things Sky Serpent, or are you ignoring that rule on the Duke?

Trust the Duke to make a late entrance.



Figured it was time for an update on him, I'd say he is about 1/3rd finished.
Flayed skin is done, the vials are done but need touching up.
His face is done but needs going back on, I'm planning on 'Ziggy Stardusting' him up a bit.
Hair is done.
His Gyrinx scarf is done.

I've made him a new base to make him stand out a bit and look more intimidating, he's not stuck down yet so that's why you get a free hand model shot.

Gonna hopefully get him done in time for Throne of Skulls this weekend, maybe.

Well, the Duke's fashionably late, as always! I really like what you've accomplished so far, great hair and face! Can't wait to see the finished model!

Finally finished converting my new Kabalite Warrior squad, they haven't really got a theme as such but I thought using the Dark Elf Black Guard as a base would be interesting. They were relatively simple to make, just cut off the arms and heads, attached Kabalite helms and arms and Scourge pouches and vials for embellishment.

Looks awesome, but why make warriors from such models? Those would be great splinter-trueborn! Very Happy

Not much more work on any troops or vehicles but started to work on my Aegis Defence Line and objective markers....



This is my defence line, started life as some plasticard which I traced some actual defence lines over to make sure they are the right size and dimension. I've glued some basing kits bits and pieces on there as well as some decapitated marines. Plan is for the line itself to be made of marine heads impaled on spikes: I need some advice though, what chapter shall I paint them as?



These are some of the objective markers. The first is my relic which comes from the high elf dragon kit, planning on painting the pyramid on top as crystal but might change is to something else on top, any ideas? Next is some of the unreleased topless slaves, an Eldar Titan head and one of the 1985 jokaeros, any idea for a different idea?

Quick update - I've pretty much finished my work on a new warrior Venom as well as moving my gladiator/hunter Wyches over from a Raider into a Venom. Not the best photos though however.

I like the objective markers,I assume one is a failed attempt to eject... the skeleton in the cockpit.

I've redone my vehicles. All of the Venoms are new, the rest have gone to a temporary graveyard. As there were so many new vehicles getting painted I decided to redo the lot. Only the Ravager and one of the Razorwings were in my original 1500 list two years ago.

This is done with airbrushing and it's taking me forever to black out everything else. I'm happy with the results but they have a loooong way to go yet.

Thanks for the kind comments regarding the airbrushing, it seems to rely on good light to really look great but I think when the army is finished it will really take off.

So, anyway.

Apparently a new codex called Eldar came out recently and they're like cheap imitations of the guys from Commorragh but they've got a backstory which helps explain where Dark Eldar came from and I haven't seen much discussion of them around......

Ok, I'll stop.

I'm all over the new Eldar dex and have added a few bits to my army. Out come the lanceborn, a unit of warriors in a Venom, the defence line and a Razorwing (a Ravager does come in) and in comes a Farseers, some Windriders, a Crimson Hunter and a Warp Hunter. They represent the Corsair contingent of the Sky Serpents.



Apologies for the dark image, this is my Corsair Nightshade Interceptor, Moon Siren. I've added the dorsal fin from the wraithfighter to hopefully tie it in with the Razorwing while also given it a unique profile.



These are my Windriders. I don't care what people say, the jetbike itself is still a fantastic looking model, it just suffers from the torso of the rider. The bikes are stock with Guardian torsos added, FW Corsair heads and some from the Hellions. They have Shuriken clips on one side of their waste while the other has lots of different ones from different kits, I've also modified their flagpoles a lot. You can also see a cheeky Warp Hunter photobombing the shot to the right.



Farseer on Jetbike with Mantle of the Laughing God. Legs are the bike legs with robes from the HE mage lord draped over, Wraithseer body, head, arm. I'm pleased with it so far but feel its lacking something and looks like a Wraithseer on a bike. How could I make it look more Corsair? Any ideas for an alternative staff tip?



A quick army shot at 1650, sans Ravager.

Wow great conversions Sky. The Eldar contingent looks great with your DE. I'd love to see a closeup of your Jetbikers.

As for making your Farseer look more Corsair...I actually think you should go with making him look more Harlequin if he's going to have the Mantle of Laughing God and the awesome Harlequin prow on his jetbike. Going more Harlequin would just involve painting him Harlequin style. Let the paint and brushes do the heavy lifting from here! Just a thought.
