The Works

After a couple of posts regarding the games I have been playing, I thought I'd drop a few pictures of the models that I am working on at this moment in time.

Returning to the Path of the Warrior

I had my first game in many months with the Eldar this weekend. After running with the Necrons for the past 4-5 months, the plans was always to go back to the Space Elves after the Invasion tournament as that is where my loyalties lie. So how did it go? I shall proceed to describe events.

My Favourite Kind of War

I thought I'd start off my first miniatureless post with a little piece on my favourite scenario in 40K 6th edition, Relic.

Necron Overlord

This is my most successful miniature to date. At the Warhammer Invasion on Friday 12th April, it scooped the 'Best Single Miniature' award.

WIP: Commander Shadowsun

The leader of my Tau force is going to be Commander Shadowsun, my choice was made after reading the excellent Novella Shadowsun: The Last of Kirus Line from Black Libary. Females as a whole are pretty absent in the 40k universe, but the way she was portrayed in the book as a stern warrior but still having a fragile side, which fuelled her strength really caught my interest.

As I had painted my Cadre Fireblade in the test colours for the force, I decided to just plunge headlong into transferring that scheme to the Shadowsun model.

Cadre Fireblade

The new Tau codex has caught my eye recently, thanks to some really stunning miniatures. Given that in Sixth Edition 40k allies have a stronger part to play, and that Tau and Eldar ally at the highest level, I took it as an excuse to start a small army.

The first mini that I've painted is the Cadre Fireblade, the sculpt is really impressive, and after seeing him in-game and what he can do, he's pretty much a safe HQ choice.
