Kabal of the Burnished Sapphire - with added Wraithknight

Post by Tangentical » Tue Feb 12, 2013 4:06 am

Hi,

I’m starting my Dark Eldar Kabal with a central theme of Carnival of Flesh.

Unfortunately I started a couple of weeks ago before I found out about this fun challenge and painted my wracks as a starting point but I’m targeting 2000 points so I can still make up 1850 from the rest (it just makes the 1850 look a little more troop light than it actually is!).

Here goes

HQ

Urien Rakarth

Asdrubael Vect (may go elsewhere if no model is released before August/Sept, e.g. Drahzar of Lelith or will need to convert)

Troops

10 Kabalite Warriors with Dark Lance and Sybrite leader
(I’m planning on converting these up with Corsairs)

7 Wyches with either Hexatrix or Hydra gauntlets (same cost upgrades)

Elites

7 Grotesques with Urien’s upgrade, 1 with Liquifier and 1 Aberration with Flesh Gauntlet
(I’m planning on going the Rat Ogre conversion route)

4 Incubi with a Venom (Dual cannon)

3 Trueborn with Splinter Cannon and 2 Blasters with a Venom (Dual Cannon)

Heavy

Talos Pain Engine (Sebastian - now named by Zoe).

Ravager

Voidraven Bomber (if unreleased by July then a Razorwing Jetfighter)
(not 100% on the loadouts of the Hvy Support yet as part unreleased)

Allies

Farseer on Jetbike

3 Guardian Jetbikes

I also need a name for my Kabal… - now named Kabal of the Burnished Sapphire


Cheers

Chris

And getting in there early (pre 1 March), my March challenge will be painting up my Kabalite Warriors as they're pretty core to getting the force off the ground.

So 10 Kabalite Warriors is my challenge (I may well do 11 so I can swap in/out Splinter cannon and Dark Lance depending on game/points etc).

Think I'll paint up the Hellbrute from DV while I wait for 1 March to come around!!!

Cheers

Chris

While waiting to get started proper with the March target here are the Wracks and Haemonculus that I started out with in January before finding out about this contest fun!

(not part of the challenge but part of my overall army of course)

Oooh. Nice work with the shading on that blue in particular. =)

Hi,

Test model for my Kabalite unit converted using Corsairs done.

The test may well end up being the Sybrite but I had to remove the Scourge head as I realised with a helmet on how could he blow his horn!?!?

Think i'm going to change the rifle but the rest is probably the sort of scheme i'll go for for the army...

Cheers

My modelling but not dojng enough painting run continues with a converted Talos.

Not a major conversion, just pinned two extra tentacle arms at the bottom and kept the tentacle bottom from the Cronos variant.

I think it looks more like it's running on its tentacles now rather than weirdly floating around (wasn't a fan of that - not menacing enough, more of a weird spikey balloon!).

Surprised I've not seen this when i've searched for inspiration on the t'interwebs as it was a very easy and obvious conversion to me.

Cheers

Chris

Realised I hadn't posted up my conversion work on my Grotesques so the last comment on modelling but not painting made little sense!

Image

All built and in dire need of paint but March is already Kabalite Warrior month!

Cheers

And I've built and undercoated my Kabalite warriors (conversions using the Black Ark Corsairs) and clearly from earlier post painted the test model...

Building up a storm, now need to paint!!!!
