  1. This is where I'll post stuff for my Aeldari of all persuasions. I've been working on the Anger & Arrogance event, so let's start this thread with my latest vow (#5 for those keeping track). Vow 5 I'm also considering how to paint future craft world models. I've extended my galaxy pattern to wave serpents so think new craft world faction is in the works. I'm leaning towards gray with teal accents. I tried purple and daemonette hide, but didn't get the look I wanted. I've got a bunch of stuff including: the new combat patrol a guardians box a rangers box 2 boxes of banshees an autarch box On the drukhari side, I've got one and a half combat patrols to paint. I am not pleased with my prior custodes color scheme, so am looking to use a complement to the craftworld colors - possibly teal with orange or light blue highlights.
  2. The Runes have been cast and sacrafices have been made. The Warbands of Chaos and the Hosts of Aeldari March to war! With the upcoming release of the Aeldari codex and Chaos Space marine, Daemon and Knight codexes, it's about time we do an event! This is a joint event between Aeldari and Chaos. Each completed Vow will go towards your faction's total, with badges being given out to participants who paints the most for each side and also for each subfaction. Of course there are also participation badges too! Who can participate? Craftworld Eldar and Ynnari Dark Eldar Outcasts (Harlequins, Corsairs and Exodites) Heretic Astartes Death Guard Thousand Sons Chaos Daemons Lost and the Damned How do I vow? Pick a model/unit to paint and use their Power level. Each finished vow is added to your faction's total and you can vow as many times as you want within the event time frame. Models must be at most spray undercoated and you can include building in your Vow (it won't get you any extra points ) You can Vow as many times as you want during the event as long as your previous vow is completed! To Vow for the Aeldari side, go to the Aeldari subforum to this topic To Vow for the Chaos side, go to the Heretic Astartes subforum to this topic How long does the event run for? This event will run from today (16th February) until 16th May. As soon as you Vow for the event, you can get started. If you've got any questions, feel free to drop me a PM. We look forward to seeing you all down in the Aeldari and Chaos Forums!

  8. I started a proper Harlequin army the day 9th edition was announced. This thread is a consolidation of my Harlequin work, thoughts, and maybe even battle reports.

  9. http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=screenshot&id=690 File Name: Anhrathe in Kill Team File Submitter: Ioldanach File Submitted: 30 Nov 2021 File Category: Kill Team I got excited when I saw the rumors about the update to the asuryani/craftworlds, especially the bit about the possible inclusion of the corsairs, so I decided to update my anhrathe rules for the 2021 version of the Kill Team game. I'm skeptical about the rumors (though I'd love to see them come true). This is currently a preliminary version. These are changed substantially from the version I developed for the 2018 version of the Kill Team game. For the most part, I've limited the options to what players might create using the Eldar Guardian models and the Eldar Corsairs upgrade kits from Forge World. This means that most of the options from the drukhari have been removed. I don't know if that was a good idea, but it's what I'm going with for now (we'll see what the feedback shows). Areas of concern: Corsair Reaver and Voidstorm Corsair options allow for both melee and shooting loadouts (with both icons orange). If this is thought to be too powerful, I'll break them out into shooty and stabby units. Heavy and special weapons have been limited to those available to the asuryani (previous version followed The Doom of Mymeara in allowing both asuryani and drukhari weapons). Weapon options for felarchs are extremely limited, largely based on the upgrade sprue options. The malevolent has been removed from this version. I'm considering adding them back in as a stabby unit. The Strategic Ploys, Tactical Ploys, and Equipment are mostly cherry-picked from the Compendium (from the Craftworld, Comorrite, and Harlequin sections - only those that I thought were appropriate to the Corsairs). Corsair jet packs are an equipment choice, but they get expensive (2EP/model that gets them). I originally had them as an ability for the Voidstorm Corsairs, but made them equipment after deciding to use the Forge World images (everybody is wearing a Corsair jet pack). Images are limited. I'm using the ones from Forge World, and a few are just reversed so that they can be used multiple times. If someone has decent representative images (with white backgrounds), I might use them. Otherwise, I'll replace these at a future date when I have decent models converted and painted. I kept a modified version of the back page from the previous version, giving players that aren't familiar with the anhrathe some background. I'm considering adding in the name charts, or perhaps giving new versions to expand the options (if players have the old ones). *** 2021 December 11 Version *** The lasblaster and brace of pistols have had their special rule changed from Rending to Ceaseless. The version is now shown in the top right corner. Minor formatting improvements have been made (nothing substantive). *** 2021 December 15 Version *** Added Drukhari weapons. Added name chart. *** 2021 December 18 Version (Rogue Trader) *** Removed Ghostwalker fire team Corsair Reavers become shooty, Voidstorm Corsairs become stabby (neither is a veteran level) Added Corsair Malevolents. One Corsair Reaver fire team and one Voidstorm Corsair fire team can take a Corsair Malevolent in place of a Corsair Reaver/Voidstorm Corsair. The Corsair Malevolent can only take chainswords (1 or 2), spar-glaives (1 or 2), or a power glove (with either a chainsword or a spar-glaive). The end result is that you might be able to take up to 2 Corsair Malevolents in your kill team. Ghostwalkers become an optional upgrade that replaces a Corsair Reaver Gunner/Voidstorm Corsair Gunner. A Ghostwalker can be equipped with an Aeldari long rifle, lasblaster, or shuriken catapult. The end result is that you might have up to 2 Ghostwalkers in your kill team. Fists replaced with Corsair blades, which are mundane knives. Most models have these along with a brace of pistols. *** 2021 December 26 Version (both variants) *** After looking at the previous two versions and some of the official lists in the Kill Team Compendium, I decided to standardize the structure of both variants.

I liked how the ghostwalker was an alternative to the gunner (in both fire team types), so I extended that concept. After seeing that the gunners in The Doom of Mymeara were limited to special weapons and that only the balestrike bands, a heavy support choice, had heavy weapons, I adjusted the Kill Team faction rules accordingly. Since other factions don’t have heavy support fire teams, however, I made the balestrike corsair an alternative to the gunner, but only in the corsair reaver fire team. I made the corsair malevolent an alternative to the gunner in the voidstorm corsair fire team. Both the balestrike corsair and corsair malevolent are limited to one per kill team (not fire team). The corsair reavers and voidstorm corsairs are very flexible, with options to be either shooty or stabby, so I wanted the alternatives (ghostwalker, balestrike corsair, corsair malevolent) to force choices. The voidstorm corsairs are effectively a fire team of felarchs, but with slightly fewer options than the actual Felarch. Since the previous corsair reaver felarch and voidstorm corsair felarch operative datacards were identical (minus the names), I consolidated those into a single datasheet, simply called “Felarch.” In both lists, most operatives have a brace of pistols and Corsair blades. A brace of pistols is basically a bunch of pistols, while Corsair blades is basically a bunch of knives. I’ve added the OUTCAST keyword to all of the operatives in both lists. This doesn’t haven’t any impact on these variants, but is based on what I’ve seen with the bespoke factions (e.g., Octarius and Chalnath). Each of these is similar to the counterpart lists in the Kill Team Compendium, but has unique rules and slightly different keywords. The OUTCAST keyword simply facilitates future efforts on some bespoke lists. The difference between the two variants (other than the images) is in the weapons: The Doom of Mymeara variant preserves the drukhari weapons. The Rogue Trader variant replaces the drukhari weapons with their asuryani counterparts and also allows hand flamers, power axes, and power gloves. I also created a new orange skull icon for the faction keyword and changed the abilities and special rules text to size 9 font. Both of those changes will be in the updated faction rules template (which will be uploaded once I get the portrait frame image elements separated for those hobbyists that don’t have Photoshop). The Doom of Mymeara variant supports those players that collected the more recent version of corsairs, including those that may be represented using drukhari miniatures. The Rogue Trader variant supports those players that are using the Warhammer 40,000 1st and 2nd Edition eldar miniatures. The key problem, mostly relevant to the Rogue Trader variant, is the need to convert – there aren’t any man-portable bright lances or scatter lasers. I could see using 1st edition harlequins for their power axes and power gloves, and the old 2nd edition sprues have power gloves (not to mention that some of the 1st edition models have power gloves and/or hand flamers). Some players have these models/bits, though, so the Rogue Trader variant might work for them. For those that have more recently joined the eldar corsairs fan club, The Doom of Mymeara variant, the Forge World upgrade sprues and drukhari kits will provide the bits that you need. If the rumors have any truth to them, we’ll see the corsairs in the future, at which point I’ll update these to match the models (assuming GW doesn’t give us Kill Team rules for them right away). At that point, I may keep some of the more exotic stuff for bespoke anhrathe variant lists. We should have shiny new models if the corsairs are brought back, so those will drive the options (though some conversion opportunities may be provided by other models in the aeldari ranges). *** 2021 December 31 Version (both variants) *** Removed chainsword Corsair blades changed to array of blades (identical to Comorrites) Brace of pistols changed to laspistol (see Astra Militarum) with fusillade ability Shuriken pistols and splinter pistols (latter only in DM version) added as alternative to brace of pistols Changed the celestial shield (equipment) to a shimmershield *** 2022 January 7 Version (both variants) *** Streamlined the weapon options. – operatives no longer come with a brace of pistols, array of blades, and additional weapons. Instead, they typically come with an array of blades (or some other melee weapon) and a ranged weapon. This is in line with the operatives in the official factions in the Compendium. Removed the blast pistol from the felarch (Rogue Trader version only). The RT version wasn’t supposed to include drukhari weapon options, so the blast pistol was an error (probably a cut and paste error). The blast pistol remains an option for the felarch in the Doom of Mymeara version. Removed the shimmer shield (equipment). Only a few of the official factions have an invulnerable save, so it was inappropriate to add it here when it wasn’t in the sources upon which both of these variants are based. See the support topic for details. I appreciate any feedback that players might provide in improving these rules. Note that the Rogue Trader and Doom of Mymeara versions are separate variants. choose whichever one meets your collection limitations based on the notes above.

  14. So after a very..... long time off not posting anything, mainly posted on FB pages; I’ve decided to dip my toe back into forums again. After many, many years of only doing marines I thought I’d give some dirty space elf’s a go. Going for a very small 500 point army to get me started (hopefully I’ll finish unlike my various other projects) .

  19. Like it says on the tin. Would the following list be any good? <Haemonculus Coven> Battalion Detachment HQ Options: Haemonculus w/Hexrifle: 75 Points Haemonculus w/Hexrifle: 75 Points Troops Options: Wracks x5 w/Hexrifle x1: 151 Points Wracks x5 w/Hexrifle x1: 151 Points Wracks x5 w/Hexrifle x1: 151 Points Elites Options: Grotesques x3 w/Monstrous Cleavers x3: 105 Points Heavy Support Options: Talos x1 w/Macro-Scalpels x2, Haywire Blasters x2: 99 Points Talos x1 w/Macro-Scalpels x2, Haywire Blasters x2: 99 Points Dedicated Transport Options: Venom x3: 195 Points Total: 996 Points It's a nice, fluffy list, what with the whole "it is 100% Haemonculus units" thing. I'm considering picking it up just to have a Drukhari list with good fluff to it. Edit: Altered based on suggestions. Any good now? I removed all the Liquifiers and replaced them with other weapons, cut down the Wracks to 5-member squads and added Venoms for each, altered the Talos' weapons and added a second Talos because I had exactly 100 points left over after all that. Edit 2: I realized Acothysts (Wrack Sergeants) could take Hexrifles and that threw a wrench into everything, so I basically overhauled the entire list.
  20. I had an interesting idea. What if there was a Harlequin troupe which, rather than warning of the dangers of the Great Enemy from the perspective of the Aeldari, they acted examples from the history of the Imperium, such as the fall of Magnus the Red and the Horus Heresy in general? Could be interesting, I think. Edit: Weird key command that I somehow triggered accidentally, had to finish up the post.
  21. Hello everyone I've been doing project logs for a while (and I even have one on this site in the Dark Eldar section but I didn't know that this existed at the time as I'm still kinda new to Bolter & Chainsword. (It's here http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/345779-kabal-of-the-nightsworn-project-log/ ) Anyway I play Dark Eldar and have been making a converted army in the theme of Necromancy, Armor, and Kabals (you'll see some of these themes as I post images) if you all would like I could start posting lore to go with each of the models as well. Anyway on with the show! Talos Pain Engines Grotesques Incubi My first conversions (These are pretty much a test now but I'll put em here anyway) WIP Mandrakes (Conversion not Complete) Wyches-Kill Team (You can see some of my other projects here if you look) Archon Conversion Anyway I hope you guys like some of my conversions and more will be on the way, and I look forward to your comments
  22. Hello guys! Welcome to my Eldar blog. Here I will upload pics of this army as I collect and paint them. A long time ago, in the bygone era of 4th edition, I knew of this wonderful hobby and I had to make a really hard choice: Which army do I want to play? First I looked at the Imperial Guard, then the Dark Eldar (because Cruellagh The Vile rules), and all of the other armies. In the end I went with Chaos Marines but I always had a soft spot for Eldars. I really liked the War Walkers and the Dire Avengers but for many reasons I didn't collect said army. But recently I made a trade and got many of the models I like and decided it was time for Eldars. My army's background started with an idea of a place in which all of the eldar race could reunite and party. They were merchants of the refined pleasure of music and dreams. Sure, some of these eldars without self control went deeper into the pleasures but they were kicked out of the craftworld because the seers knew that way led to a dark place, so they remained restrained in their tastes even before Slaanesh happened. Since I always envisioned the Eldars as a mixture of The Sandman, Elric of Melniboné and Glam Rock music, I will try to model or at least paint my minis with said qualities. I haven´t got so far on my minis since I've had them for like a day but here are some pics of them alongside some bit of fluff for each of them. (Please excuse the WIP pics. I have only managed to basecoat them and shade the turquoise) Autarch Caliostro He is the Leader of the Defenders of Noctian. He has walked the paths of sound and dreams for millenia as well as the path of the Autarch after the birth of She who thirsts. He prefers to don his ancient weapons in battle; The Shards of Acustes (Fusion Gun), The Spear of Grieff (power weapon) and the Helmet of The Scorpions (Mandiblasters) Farseer Onirös He is the High Seer of the Craftworld and the guide in the path of dreams, jobs he has done since before the fall. He dons the Helm of Noctis in battle and his Singing Spear Amapollie The Trinity (War Walker Squad) Composed by the Walkers Assaï, Brëit and Dëciso. They are the seninels of the College of Onirös and some of the most ardent defenders of the Craftworld. Squad Dolorosso (Dire Avengers) This squad is tasked with the protection of the repositories of oniric paints of Autarch Calliostro, which depict the feelings and motivations of many Eldars. They were more, but after an incursion by slaaneshi reavers in the repositories they have been at half strenght. Squad Fucuosso (Dire Avengers) They defend the inner quaters of the Autarch Calliostro and are among his inner circle. They are veterans of the Brutish Wars against a nomadic Mob of orkish raiders. The Brotherhood of the Lyre, Squad Gioioso (Corsair reavers) The Brotherhood of the Lyre, Squad Omaggio (Corsair Reavers) The members of the Brotherhood of the Lyre mercenaries are Eldar exiles that originate from this Craftworld, and so they always keep comunicating with the leaders and are willing to lend their hands whenever needed. The Corsair prince saw fit to leave two squads of his troops as permanent garrison on the Craftworld as a way to honour Farseer Onirös and pay him tribute for his lifetime work. Well that is what I have so far. Since the Corsairs were my old blood bowl team I decided to leave them as they were and just glue some rifles on them, so they are armed with a mixture of Shardcarabines and Shard cannons (even if some of them have shuriken carabines I wont use them as such.) The Felarch were modeled with swords but that will be just to mark them as the leaders until FW renews their corsair rules. As for the future, I have planned to get a box of 5 dire avengers to complete squad Dollorosso and get a couple of Wave Serpents. On a modelling sidenote, since I am going to paint them with Glam Rock themes like Zebra pattern clothes and bright colored hair to go with the turquoise, I was considering the idea of sculpting feather or fur on some collars of the minis. Would you like to see that? What are your thoughts on the Glam idea? Thank you for reading!
  23. In preparation for the upcoming Xeno Files event, I've been painting some of my long-dormant Eldar. And by long, I mean long, since I haven't put paint to brush on most of these guys since I bought most of them in late 3rd or 4th Edition and haven't put them on a gaming table since 5th. Just to be clear, none of these are part of my Xeno Files vow, these are just... warm ups. I'm painting my Eldar in a personal take on the Craftworld Altansar scheme. The studio scheme is too bright and too. . . pink. . . for me. These are Eldar who have been lost in the Eye of Terror for 10,000 years. Since emerging back into real-space, they've been treated as pariahs. . . and not without good reason, seeing as how they refuse to un-helm around outsiders. They're sinister and frankly they should be, having been trapped within a hell-dimension with their very souls at stake. So I'm going with dark colors, lots of black accented by a dull golden metallic (aka Hashut Copper on a base of Warplock Bronze). The non-Aspects will feature Sanguine Highlight from Privateer Press' P3 line as it is a decent pinkish-red that remains suitably dull. This will also be used as an accent color on some of the Aspect Warriors to further tie them back in with the rest of the army. So with no further ado, here are some of my works. Some are presented in WIP-to-finish format, others are still being worked on. Maugan Ra, the Harvester of Souls: Guardian Platforms with bright lances: Wave Serpent turret with shuriken cannons: Fire Dragon Exarch, test scheme: Let me know what you think!
