Starting a new force....Eldar

With a friend of mine getting into 40k, and me quite disliking the idea of Space Marine vs Space Marine, I decided this was a prefect opportunity to get a new project going.

I've like Eldar for a long time. They have great models and a very cool background. Plu sit was a good excuse to do a lot of OSL lighting! Out of all the Craftworld's, the Biel Tan would be hands down the best in my opinion in terms of background. Vengeful and attacking all who threaten the emerging Eldar Empire, they utilize lots of Aspects and have a cool scheme that uses some freehand.

So I got round to collecting some models so we could have some games. I'm pleased to say that already we have had quite  a few with our relevant forces though sadly I have no photo's of them. I have however finished my first Eldar model, my Farseer Auric Stormseer. This is a name I have borrowed from the old Black Library book, Farseer, which is a very good read, if a little old.

So here is my first model. Hope you like!

My current Eldar force comprises of:
10 Dire Avengers (So good)
10 Defender Guardians
2 Wave Serpents (Insanely good)
Wind rider squad (6 of them, these guiys are also really good, and they have a couple of shuriken cannons)

Considering how well my Dire Avengers do, I think they will be my next unit to work on.

Thanks for looking!



  1. Wow, I like it! I specially like Biel Tan, I believe the green/white combination and the thorn theme look great. Your starts are quite promising, keep on! :)

    1. Cheers! I've always liked the Biel Tan look and the opportunity to do some freehand is welcome. I did have an opportunity to prime some Dire Avengers the other day, so I'm hoping to do a test figure for them in the next two weeks.

      Thanks for looking and the kind words!
