I started painting them for a little get- together with the Random Encounter guys. Most of them were finished after the last meeting (thanks for the hospitality Ezikiel), but I decided to expand with another 2 heavy weapon crews and a Commissar.
Since im problably never going to field them in a game of 40k, I decieded not to paint the imperial eagles and other insignia on them. They are ment for other more crazy games 😉
Oh and they look much better on the table, this is speedpainting 😉
Just wanted to show that the blog is still alive 😉
I haven’t painted very much the last couple of weeks, due to the lack of energy after I picked op sports again. I started Thai Boxing after an almost 8 year long break, damn this is tough! But now I’m finally getting energy back 😀
To get back in the painting game again, I had my friend Frederik “Stunke” Beyer over for a small “painting & cake “session (thx to my wonderful wife for the delicious chocolate cake, you really are the best!).
I worked a little more on my 40k Eldar projekt and on a Freebooter Huntress mini I’m planning to paint for display use. Frederik did some work on his Warhammer Fantasy Chaos Knights Ebay thingy.
The important is, that I’m back at the paintstation, not how much I actually painted 😉
I’ve had an older Warhammer 40k Eldar army in the basement for a very long time without being able to find the motivation to paint it, or at least some of it. (I actually painted 6 old metal Dire Avengers a while back, will post pics soon).
BUT, my friend Ivan and I both want to game some more (aye, I know… Ivan and I talk a lot), and since Ivan is a sucker for Warhammer 40k and I actually already got an army, I decided to to something about it and start painting some Eldar.
I’ve started with the Farseers and Warlocks, excellent mini’s! I’m really enjoying to paint these mini’s, I’m aiming for a good tabletop quality that doesn’t take to long to achieve. So there’s actually hope ill finish some of this army this time 😉
I had this army lying around for so long… BUT now is the time to do something about it!
I’m planning to go to a gaming weekend at the next “Random Encounters Gameclub” meeting, a little private social event my friend Thorbjørn and his homies run. Thorbjørn was the one who re-introduced me to Epic scale gaming again, I played it before a long time ago, and so what would be more perfect than to be able to bring a fresh fully painted army 🙂
Enough with the babbling… on to the important stuff… the minis!
I decided to make a few test models because I tried to paint the army before, but was never really happy about the result. This time I think I got it! I’m going for the regular Biel-Tan look, green and white. Luckily it turned out well (at least I think so), so this is how it’s going to look (still need to do bases and apply warnish):
