Continuing on with my personal challenge, I've managed to finish off a couple more pieces for my Dark Eldar army. The first one is the raider for my Blood Brides, depending on whether I'm using the Venom or not, means this may be the ride for my Succubus, so needed to be a bit special. I used two raiders to build this one, it has a double fuselage and double wide running boards, the gunner is sat at the back as well as the pilot, and has a double prow as well ( my friend thinks it's a slide for the Wyches to slide down ! LOL)
I've also got my unit of Trueborn done. During codex 1 I thought about having some elite looking warriors, and got some Black Guard of Naggaroth models to start this, and until recently that's how it stayed, just an idea, on the release of Codex 2 we had an elite warriors unit added, the Trueborn who can have a lot of extra weaponry, so here they are first is the Dracon (unit leader) and three trueborn with Shard Carbines
Next we have four with Blaster
and lastly two with Splinter Cannon, making the rate of firepower from this one unit pretty intense.
so what was my step back I hear you say, well I decided to add a unit I'd left off ! LOL When codex 2 came out the Mandrakes changed, both in look and game wise, now I wasn't a massive fan of the models, as they all looked like they were squatting, and there was only 3 variants, then they were produced in finecast, so they became a total non entity. Now for having all the options I decided I now wanted some, Ebay wasn't going to be an option, for the reasons already mentioned, and the enormous price tag as well. So looking through the bits boxes I found I still had some Empire Flagellants that would work as a basis, I also used a Dark Eldar bare head, and that was my starting point. This is what the first one looks like all in green stuff, I've also included a picture of GW's for anyone who doesn't know what they should look like.
Only another four to sculpt and paint ! LOL That's all for this post, so until next time, which could be a hairy situation, stay safe and have fun !
