Thanks guys!! :D

I thought this raider turned out a little light on the nebula free-handing. There's actually quite a bit of "cloud" that you can't see with the amount of contrast in the pictures, but... once you are tabletop distance away from it, it doesn't stand out nearly as well as the stars. So I hit the edge highlights a little bit harder.


OH. Speaking of - I got the 'Edge' class paints from GW direct and they are SOOOO much nicer to use than the 'Dry' paints and the colors match. Like... really match, not the two-shades-and-slightly-more-blue type nonsense they called matching between this iteration of paint colors and the last.

Why have I just now seen this army!?! Amazing!
If you live in Japan (Kanto Plain area) or are about to, visit us on Wargamers in Japan!

Thank you! :) It's okay if you haven't wanted to come to Comorragh and visit us. Pretty understandable, really, it's a wee bit... treacherous... hehe.

So. for the last month of the challenge, I will be painting...


Lelith Hesperax and...

...the archon's personal raider.

This will replace the Reavers in the army list, as well as downgrade the missiles on my Razorwing to monoscythe missiles to make the points work. Lelith will ride with the 8 wyches and raider I painted last month - transferred from the Incubi listing, and the Archon's Personal Raider appears in the Incubi's listing for the Archon to ride in along with her trusty bodyguards.

That lelith conversion is awesome, look forward to seeing your work on it! Is she going to be the bad girl herself or just a normal wych HQ?
Raider conversion is very nice as well.

She is going to be the bad girl herself. While wyches on their own are a nice tarpit, I would like my main wych unit to be able to actually kill things in CC. And Lelith should have no problem effecting that. ;)

Depending so much on what drugs you roll. I used a unit of bloodbrides with a haemonculus the other day and they rolled the extra pain token. Furious charge made them very dangerous. I would like to see more standardization in the pharmaceutical industry! Ban hypex!
