Sadists March - DE coven

Post by Threx » Sat Jan 04, 2014 9:27 am

Hi all totally new to these forums so a helping hand might be required, but i didn't want to miss the HPC this year.

Been collecting and building Dark Eldar for about 5 months now but recently got sucked into the coven side of things. This seemed like a great chance to push myself along a concentrated path instead of going off on all sorts of tangents :)

I am personally 100% unfamiliar with Zone Mortalis but after a quick look through the forgeworld site I think I got the general gist of a legal build list (if I have it wrong please let me know so i can change it up a bit).

So going by the Defenders FOC my list is as follows:

HQ -

Urien Rakarth - 190
Haemonculus /Liquifier - 60

Troops -

Wracks x 5 /Acothyst Agoniser 80
Wracks x 5 /Liquifier 60
Wracks x 5 /Liquifier 60
Wracks x 5 /Liquifier 60

Elites -

Grotesques x 10 /Liquifier Aberration Flesh Gauntlet 390

Heavy -

Talos /Chain Flails 110
Talos /Chain Flails 110

Total 1020

The proposed first part of the challenge in varying stages of undress. From primed and unbuilt or unconverted to a basic base coat.

Individual photos will follow if this one works (fingers crossed) along with when I plan to do them (grotesques will probably be left untill last as the conversion work seems to take me an age)

Right so here is my break down. Close up shots if you like.

Apologies in advance for the pretty poor quality using my phone as I'm new to documenting my hobby.

So....

HQ's - Primed and flesh based on Urien

Image

Troops - Primed. Flesh based on all and robes and metals based on 10 (Done in 2 photos instead of 4 to keep post size down)

Image

Image

Elites - 4 converted and 1 GW model primed. 5 unconverted.

Image

Image

Heavy support - 1 primed 1 primed and base coated

After realising that I have to complete a full unit in a month I have decided to pledge as follows.

Jan/Feb - Elites Unit - Grotesques x 10.

Due to quite a bit of conversion work needed on 5 of the grotesques i have decided to put these boys first the 2 month time span gives me ample time.

March - Troops - Wracks x 10

April - Troops - Wracks x 10

May - Heavy Support - Talos x 2

June - HQ's - Haemonculus and Urien

Love the DE models and this army build in particular, looking forward to seeing more.

Not to rain on your parade but the rules for the challenge are there allowed one base colour on the model prior to starting so the base coated wracks with metal/robes & flesh all based aren't going to be allowed as far as I know?!?! I only know because I had to re basecoat a scout that was red and blue based.

Goodluck!!!

Thanks for the heads up. If that does turn out to be the case then I have another 10 that are still in boxes and will just need to spend some time removing the rubbish and glueing.

Preparing fine cast wracks is horrid so I was planning not to do them just yet but rules iz rules I guess

A little update.

Some WIP on my Feb pledge.

Grots without heads :D and no I don't work for Day Nurse. Just a bit ill recently

Image

Then one pretty much finished. Might need a few touch ups on the green stuff.

Image

And had some more green stuff left over so started working on this guy.

Working on my last few grots for the challenge, and wanting to keep the poses and weapons varied im trying out some chains and cant decide how they should go.

Any insight would be great.

Up?

Yessssss grotesques! Those guys are awesome. What model from what company are they based on?
