So a couple of things...
I've been painting like a nut... non stop when I get the chance. I'm really wanting to make this eldar force work, and I don't want to drop the ball on it and lose interest before I truly get into it. I find locally I was about the only Chaos Space Marine player, and Eldar wise there's only one real consistent Eldar guy and he plays a lot of ITC and a lot of flyers which to be honest, the flyers hold no real long term interest for me. (Aside from the fact I'd love to paint one or two up).
Anyway, I painted all the vents black on the vehicles and I'm moving on. I did realize in doing so it shows off the fact the main body of the vehicles really isn't that 'black'. The pure black vents show that now, and I will probably varnish them to a higher shine to show a different texture and add interest while maintaining that stealthier tech look.
Goal by end of week:
5 completed Wraiths. (D scythe squad that you see I've started). Complete with basing, etc.
2 completed Wave Serpents
1 Completed Farseer Skyrunner.
This means a few late night nights for sure. But with the scheme figured out, I should be good!
Two problems I have are bases on the Serpents, and base on the Skyrunner. As mentioned.... I really don't think it would be 'modeling for advantage'. I just wanted a cooler, and heavier base for the Skyrunner. A small oval, or 32mm Resin base might be what I go for.
The Serpents' disks always detach when I move them. I'm sure this is common. I don't want to drill magnets in the under carriages, but is there a better way?
I split a new box with a dark eldar friend of mine (Blood of the Phoenix?) (I don't know what I'm going to do with a second falcon... or the Vyper for that matter.
I dealt with GW customer service... at first they wanted to see a bill. They said they'd help, then said because it was from a non-GW retailer they wouldn't help. Then finally they said they would help, and they said they would send out a new box of Wraithguard! So that's fantastic.
Also ordered 2 weeks ago (but my GW store missed a shipment?) of the Vaul Battery thingy.... I'm thinking 3 Vibrocannons???? (Any thoughts on this?)
Still need some rangers....
