Preparing for 8th, The Rebirth!

Way back when I started this blog it was mainly 40K that I was posting and over time that started to whittle away and get replaced with various systems that have come and gone over the years,

However with the release of 8th Ed this coming weekend an inner fire has reignited mainly due to the social media marketing from GW, Something that I'd thought I'd never see!

As I've an extensive collection of various armies from 40K the most sensible thing would be to dust off one of those and start learning again....

But this is the Anton that we are talking about and what better way to get frothy about a new system is to purchase and paint a "patrol" type force!


Eldar or what ever they will be called in the new edition have always been an army to float my boat way back when I played space marine with my old man. 


One of my favourite unit type for the eldar is the wraithguard, so in a moment of madness I got hold of some plastic crack and simply went for it! 


As I knew that the rules would be changing and all that jazz I was tempted to only part build them and then once I'd sussed out the rules then configure the army to a strong play style, That didn't quite goto plan! 


In my mind I wanted to paint the army in the colour of the Iyanden craftworld, it fits the fluff and also has one of the hardest colours known to man. Yellow!


I also decided to try something completely different with this force and do the core colour with an airbrush. It's made a massive difference and the above force was painted in about a week!

So if your in the Leicester area and are free on the 17th pop on down the Leicester Phat cats for a day of 8th Edition and blow away some yellow dudes!
