Well first off let me say, I hope not to fail!
This log is just to have somewhere to get feedback on all my random little projects.

Well I guess I'll post the obligated work space shot.

My entertainment center
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/Cremetorium326.jpg

And the two doze unfinished projects on my desk:

And finally my Elrond model which took 3rd at my GW's War of the Ring painting Comp on April 25.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/warseer003.jpg
Quick paint job to get him into the competition.

First project that I plan on starting tomorrow is Fulgrim.
At some point I plan to paint the Emperor but I'm waiting for my friend to return the shoulder pads.
So stay tuned, more models soon!
Cheers,
Kobayashi

BTW;
I'll name a space marine in my Ultramarine army after the first person to guess correctly where my name comes from!

Wintermute
08-05-2009, 07:52
Your name could come from a number of films

Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan is the most obvious (Kobayashi Maru) and its also referred to in the new Star Trek Film

and

The Usual Suspects, (Kobayashi is the name of an employee of Keyser S÷ze)

Kobayashi
08-05-2009, 07:58
Well Wintermute, looks like you'll be featured in my Ultramarine army! :)
I'm a huge fan of The Usual Suspects. It's an amazing film. It's also the one that I was watching when I took the picture of the Tv area.

Hopefully, the plan right now is to work on the Orc, Fulgrim, and an Imperial Pilot on Saturday, but you all know plans change! :D

Hi there. Wouldn┤t have known where your name comes from. ┤^^

Great minis you have there. Though I wonder if the one thing behind the wounded soldier (middle third pic) is really what I think it is.... A terminator armour?? That would be ...well stunning! And I demand some pics of it. :angel:

Elrond looks quite good too, though the pic is a bit blurry.

So go ahead and keep us postet with some more of your goodness.

Kobayashi
08-05-2009, 13:50
Ah yes, behind the IG and the Space Wolf Statue is the rare Terminator Bust from FW. No worries, he is on the list of things to paint! :D

Tourniquet
08-05-2009, 14:53
I really like the look of the wounded guard.

I cant wait to see your Fulgrim.
Are you doing him pre corruption or post?

Kobayashi
08-05-2009, 17:49
Thnaks :)
He is pre-heresy. I'll have primed pictures tonight! :D

Kobayashi
09-05-2009, 04:36
As promised, here are the pics.
The cape I had to sculpt, I didn't like the normal one. It looks better in person though.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/warseer001-2.jpg
Once his GS finish curing, I am going to prime him.
And a bonus, here's the primed Pilot.

Kobayashi
10-05-2009, 05:29
Well we're going to try this again. I tried to post an update yesterday as I promised, but the post never seems to show up. So here's today's update. Received a Harlequin Troupe from a local red shirt to paint for him. I've been dying to work on some Eldar because I plan on building a small army with tons of Harlequins. :)
Here are the WIP shots of the Troupe Master. I started him at GW earlier today instead of working on anything else! :D
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Commissions/Harlequin%20Troupe/warseer006.jpg

I'll get a shot of the front when the camera recharges!
C&C welcome
Cheers

Kobayashi
11-05-2009, 03:39
Still no front shot, batteries still dead, but I did email myself a pic from my phone of my first Dire Avenger for my own Eldar army. So enjoy the blurry picture!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/01c4e461.jpg

The idea being my army is that they are the secret guardians of the Laughing God. Hence the sparse amount of colour, I'm saving most of the colours for Harlequin Troupes. The scheme for the RAF troops in blacksh-Grey armour, red dull jems, plumes, and cloth, gold details, and silver weapons.
I'm happy with the results, and the amount of time it took to paint him! :) I finished him in 3 hours while watching tv. The bases for the first squad should show up in the mail in the next couple of days. I ordered Dragonforge's Ancient Ruins. Love his bases, use them for all my armies, display models, and plinths! :)
And here is my 1250 pt list for a game in June.

11-05-2009, 21:08
Well even without any replies, and poor photo's taken from my Iphone, I'll keep updating! :)
Finished Dire Avenger number 2 today! :) Took me an hour to get him finished. If I can speed it up to 2 a day in the hour and a half I have between class and work, then I think I can finish the squad by the end of the weekend!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/50cfef11.jpg

Well actually, the pic doesn't look half bad! :D

11-05-2009, 21:15
Failure? Anything but! Looks really nice :)!

Kobayashi
12-05-2009, 04:47
Thanks :)
The reason I say failure is because I tend to give up on a project eventually. I rarely finish anything I start, but I think my Eldar will get done!

Also, I built some more Dire Avengers, I am going to try and finish this squad before the bases for the squad arrive.

Kobayashi
13-05-2009, 04:34
Well this is a picture-less update. :(
I didn't get to take a picture of the three latest dire avengers, they're almost done, should have them finished and sealed tomorrow!
Which is amazing, 5 models completed in 3 days!!
Their bases should arrive soon though, so I may not finish them before they arrive.

Kobayashi
13-05-2009, 21:16
To make up for the no picture update last night, here is a new one with pictures! :) Finished the first 5 Dire Avengers, bases should show up tonight, which means I can base them. Also shot of the WIP Troupe Master for my friends Harlequins, and another pic of the Space Wolf Statue pre-strip with Elrond from LotR.

C&C appreciated! :)
Better pics later.
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
13-05-2009, 21:41
I love the display bases and the models look really cool. Any chance of a better picture of the Dreadnought in the first post? I like the Eldar color scheme. Makes me want to paint mine (which are mostly in boxes.)

Ragsta
13-05-2009, 22:06
It's a shame this thread hasn't drawn many comments yet. I like the Dire Avengers you've done so far, I think the armyu will look really good with bright Harlies complimenting the somewhat drabber Aspects there. Just so long as you keep some of the colours similar like weapons and the reds :)

Better pics would be a good idea, there seems to be a slight blur on these shots- does your camera have a timer?

Interested to see what basing scheme you go for, keep up the good work! Oh yes, and Wrath of Khan was a most excellent film, as is the latest effort (bit too much of Spock smooching tho).

ghostmaker12
13-05-2009, 23:37
WOAH where on earth did you get the giant SW sculpt? I like the Eldar by the way.

Kobayashi
14-05-2009, 04:31
Ask and you shall receive. This was a bad photo taken months ago, but it'll work till I add the arms.

http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Ultramarines/Dreadnought002.jpg

Ghost:
The SW Statue and the Terminator bust were purchased on eBay for a little over $100 US each.

The bases showed up right after I updated, so here we go, a small sample. The 10 Dire Avengers bases, the base for my Phoenix Lord, and the base for the Wraithlord.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers008.jpg

Kobayashi
14-05-2009, 06:24
And another update! :)
Next 5 Dire Avengers assembled and mold lines cleaned. Primed and painting starts in the morning, so looks like the entire unit will be done by Saturday! :D
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers.jpg
I may work on a unit of Ghouls or some more Harlequins. What do you guys think?
Just to make it harder to chose, I'll add a third choice: Fulgrim.
Your pick!
Cheers,
Aj

Radium
14-05-2009, 06:44
Try taking some pics of finished models against a solid background (preferably white). Something like a simple sheet of paper would work wonders ;).

If you keep up this pace, you'll have a finished army in no time. And I completelyu approve of black armoured Eldar.

Keep it up!

Kobayashi
14-05-2009, 06:47
Thanks mate! :)
Once I have some completely finished models then I will take better pictures of them!

Hopefully I'll be getting a Titan this summer!

Kobayashi
14-05-2009, 21:06
Got a bit more done today! :) The black armour needs a few more washes and it'll be done on these 5, tonight after work I'll start basecoating the red and washing it.

http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers011.jpg

Not a bad shot of all 10 together! :)
Well I'm off to work. :(

-=Lazuli=-
15-05-2009, 02:58
Nice Dreadnought. Now I want to paint my eldar. Except they are no fun to put together. Are you going to get to the pilot anytime soon?

Kobayashi
15-05-2009, 04:14
Probably once I finish this squad completely I'll do some work on the pilot. I need to start GD projects, but oh well. :)
No painting tonight, more tomorrow night though!

Kobayashi
16-05-2009, 07:56
Well here are the finished 5. Well they're now finished. The picture was taken right before I did some touch-ups and sealed them! :)
Bases will be done tomorrow, and the next 5 assembled, maybe a Wraithlord, and possibly a Necromancer for my Vampire Counts.
Base for a big and I mean BIG project will be started soon. Lazuli, your not allowed to say what the big project is!!
Ok, picture now, at approximately 2:15 AM here in Dallas!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers013.jpg
Comment!
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
17-05-2009, 02:23
Why can't I say what the "big project" is? Oh, here's a hint: It's VERY big! Nice Eldar by the way. Are you done with the bases yet?

techman
17-05-2009, 04:27
I am loving the paint jobs...and reminds me of my hobby life, start one thing end up doing 3 others :p. Great job keep the pictures coming

Kobayashi
17-05-2009, 05:07
Yes the project is very big and no you can't say more.
Also, the first 5 bases were finished when you left! haha, I'm finishing the second five now, then pictures of the finished unit, then sleep or more Dire Avengers or the Phoenix Lord!

Kobayashi
17-05-2009, 07:45
YAY For updates!!! :D
10 bases done, the dullcoat is still drying on a few. Finished the last 5, assembled the Phoenix Lord and primed him while watching Eurotrip! :D
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers015.jpg
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers016.jpg
So happpy 2:05 AM! Enjoy!
I'm out to bed, tomorrow will bring about some more Dire Avengers!

Marshal2Crusaders
17-05-2009, 11:30
Those Dire Avengers are great!

Kobayashi
17-05-2009, 18:18
Thanks! I'm putting them on their new bases now, then I'll work on assembling the second squad of Dire Avengers while painting the Phoenix Lord!
Keep commenting! :)

-=Lazuli=-
18-05-2009, 02:12
Wait, you can assemble a squad of Dire Avengers AND paint a Pheonix Lord at the same time?!? JK. Great bases, like your painting style! and just how long did it take you to paint those five bases?

Kobayashi
18-05-2009, 02:57
Haha yes I can! :) The Phoenix Lord himself is almost done, will be finished completely by 11 tonight.
The bases took about an hour for 5, it just takes a while to wash and blend and get the right colours.
Pictures will come later!

Kobayashi
18-05-2009, 04:38
As promised, the Phoenix Lord is finished, with 4 minutes to spare! Pictures will come right after the dullcoat dries! So stay tuned!

Kobayashi
18-05-2009, 05:10
Now for the large update! :)
The Phoenix Lord/Farseer, he's still a little wet.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers022.jpg
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers023.jpg
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers024.jpg

Unfortunately the many colours in the blade don't show in the picture. I painted it to look like strange alien technology, so it reflects several colours depending on the angle.

And lastly, a group shot of everything I have completely finished to date! :D
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers025.jpg

-=Lazuli=-
19-05-2009, 02:09
Nice Phoenix Lord/Farseer? Did you get the other Dire Avengers assembled while painting it? :P Are you adding any foliage to the bases? I like how you have a white undercoat and work your way down!

Kobayashi
19-05-2009, 20:51
Thanks, unfortunately Gears of War 2 distracted me while painting. I can only double task, not triple. :(
I'm not sure about foliage yet, I may add a little dead grass, but not sure. What do you all think?

White Undercoat is best for painting! :) I mix it with a grey one though, so I actually prime 2 colours on one model.

As for an update, unfortunately, I haven't had time to really work on anything, I had a full inventory at work last night so I was there from 2 PM to 3 AM, then in class from 9 AM to 2 PM today, I'm actually on my way out the door.

But this time while working, I have been thinking of idea's on what to add to the standard force, and have decided I'm adding Shining Spears. But not the crappy Jetbike models, I decided I'm going to base my on the Exodite Riders, which means we'll be using Dark Elf Cold Ones and Dire Avenger bitz! :)
Should be starting them this weekend. The second unit of Dire Avengers will be started tonight when I get home at 10.
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
20-05-2009, 01:54
Who plays video games? Jk. Just I don't. I think you should put dead grass. Dark Elf Cold One's? That will be cool except they look more Dark Eldar than Eldar.

Kobayashi
20-05-2009, 04:19
Trust me when combined with some GS, Plasticard, and Dire Avengers the Cold Ones will look very Eldar! :)

No work tonight, long day and to tired to do anything, will have to get myself up to speed tomorrow.

Hadriel Caine
20-05-2009, 05:43
I really like the black armour on Eldar. It's nicely done and doesn't look like Ulthwe!

Kobayashi
21-05-2009, 04:39
Thanks guys! Here's a small update! Right now I'm finishing the last 2 half assembled and working on the other 5. I did some slight reposing of the first 3 guys legs.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers026.jpg

And today to mailman brought me this little present! :) I can't wait to paint them, I already have some other stuff lying around.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Alkemy/Kingdoms%20of%20Avalon/DireAvengers027.jpg
This is the starter set for the Kingdoms of Avalon from the Alkemy game system from Kraken Ed. I already have one of their characters unpainted, the models are just beautiful!

Tomorrow I'll prime the new Dire Avengers after replacing my iPhone. :)
C&C
Cheers

Kobayashi
21-05-2009, 06:51
Last update for the night, all the last 5 need are arms, and I built this guy. I didn't crop the image as a teaser of what else I have hidden away. Everything behind him will someday be finished!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/DireAvengers028.jpg

21-05-2009, 11:19
Wow man I like how "simple" your scheme is for the eldar. my only question is where did you obtain the base used on the commissar lord?

Kobayashi
21-05-2009, 20:11
Thanks, all of the bases I use, well most of them are from Dragon Forge. :)
Update coming soon.

Kobayashi
21-05-2009, 22:34
Well today was productive! I now have all my Eldar models assembled, just cleaning some mold lines left then priming and painting! :)
The Wraithlord will get a little sculpting work before priming. I'm about to leave for work though, so that'll have to wait till later. Plus side is, everything will be ready for priming tomorrow afternoon!
Army Shot:
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/a99d7567.jpg

Wraithlord:
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/64cba981.jpg

I wanted him to have the don't ***** with me look, I think it shows. :)
Wraithlord number 2 will be crouching I think.

ghostmaker12
22-05-2009, 01:49
I like the posing I think its says "you talkin to me? ya you! you talkin to ME!?"

-=Lazuli=-
22-05-2009, 02:27
Like the Alkemy miniatures. Some of them have better scuplts than GW. Wonder if GW will let us play that in their store ;P Cool Wraithlord! hurry up and paint the Dire Avengers!

Kobayashi
22-05-2009, 04:02
Thanks guys! :)
The Alkemy models are amazing in person. I'll start painting tomorrow, seeing Terminator with the GW guys after they close.
As for playing it in the store, I doubt it, but I'm sure we could play at '51. I'm trying to get enough players to have someone playing each of the other factions.
Order some! :)

-=Lazuli=-
23-05-2009, 00:17
What's '51? I'll think about it. I thought Flames of War would be cool. I'll look into it.

Azriel45
23-05-2009, 02:14
Really liking this. I really want to see that primarch painted.

-=Lazuli=-
23-05-2009, 03:06
Paint the Commisar Lord!
I looked into the Alkemy miniatures. I like the Toad guys, but they're a little expensive and they don't have many miniatures. Maybe I'll play Flames of War.

Kobayashi
23-05-2009, 06:58
Alkemy is expensive, but the models are great! :)
The primarch may get started soon!
But next week once the Wraithlord and the next squad is finished, I'll be working of some Vampire Counts! :D
On another note, saw Terminator 4 tonight with people from GW, it was intense!

Kobayashi
24-05-2009, 21:43
Well good news! :)
I got a bunch of planning done yesterday, and came up with my favorite 1000 pt list so far. Here's where I stand model-paint wise.

First of all, really nice models. I love the Colour scheme you have picked for them!

As to the list. I would honestly change a few things.
In 1k lists you wont really need the exarch or crack shot.
One of the foot slogging squads really needs to have a shimmer shield and use that to screen the other squads(i would make the 7strong shimmer and screen), and take defend over Blade storm for that same squad.

The rangers are a nice addition.

I'm a little worried you lack ranged AT, but i guess your guard partner will be binging that.
Not a bad all in all list, just a few little changes i would make

-=Lazuli=-
25-05-2009, 02:05
Hey, I'll take on you're Eldar Monday if:
You have all the models and
you COME TO GAMESWORKSHOP!

Great models. Hurry up and paint the Wraithlord!

Kobayashi
25-05-2009, 05:20
Thanks for the tip Tourniquet, I'm planning on play testing the list a bit, so I'll make some tweaks based on your recommendations and see how it works.

As for playing Monday, unfortunately, I don't get off work till 10, and don't have all the models for my army! haha :)
Update in a little bit.

Kobayashi
25-05-2009, 06:29
Well here is the update! :)
This is far as I got tonight, starting on all the metallics. The red hasn't been washed yet, I figured I'd wait until I go to shade the metallics to shade the red as well. There is one barely visible in the back, he needs touch ups on the black. Damn the insides of their little cloths! heh
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers032.jpg
Tomorrow, they will be 100% complete and sealed giving me a playable gaming army.
Cheers,
Aj

Kobayashi
25-05-2009, 20:59
Todays update! :)
The models themselves are done, unfortunately I have to go to work, so I can't start the bases until later tonight. But they should be 100% tomorrow, heh just realized I've said that the past 2 days! Oh well, I slept late today. But anyway, here's the picture. C&C welcomed! :)

Looking great!

26-05-2009, 02:04
Those Eldar are looking awesome. I really like the shade of red you've chosen to compliment the black. :)

Kobayashi
26-05-2009, 05:18
Thanks guys! :)
Should have the bases done tomorrow! :D

Kobayashi
27-05-2009, 20:53
Well here is the update I promised! :)
My first fully painted playable army!!!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers034.jpg
Well comment!!
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
28-05-2009, 02:05
Yay! The Eldar are done (*finally!*). Looking great.

Kobayashi
28-05-2009, 04:17
Haha well not exactly done, I mean these are, but the next couple of units aren't! :D
I'll probably begin their bases tomorrow! :)

Kobayashi
28-05-2009, 20:27
Well here's today's update! I got my room cleaned up and packed up the items that I plan on selling at the Bazaar on Saturday! :) I will hopefully unload it all, or else some of you fine warseer folks will have to buy it!

And two of the four bags of trash.

So no painting today, should start back on that tomorrow night! :)

I'll take the Shadowswords and the baneblade :)

Kobayashi
29-05-2009, 03:54
There isn't a Baneblade in there! haha
It's just IG sprues!

-=Lazuli=-
30-05-2009, 14:56
Since when did you have guard? I think the Baneblade kit is better than the Shadowsword though.

Kobayashi
30-05-2009, 14:57
I've always had Guard, just never played them. Used to have a nice large DKoK force from FW.

-=Lazuli=-
30-05-2009, 14:59
I'll take the DKok force if you still have any. I sold my Chaos Army ans trying to sell my Ultramarines to get Krieg. You still have any?

Kobayashi
31-05-2009, 01:38
Nope, sold my long time ago! :)
But now for your viewing pleasure. Santa Clause came very early this year! :) Today I got all of this stuff.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers041.jpg
From Left to right its:
Dark Elf Cold One Knights (Shining Spears Exodite conversions), 2 boxes of Dire Avengers, a War Walker Squadron (Which I bought for $35), an Eldar Cloudstorm Squadron (The last ever to be sold in my local GW), 2 boxes of Harlequins, 1 box of Empire Wizards (Vampire's in my VC army), 4 bright colourful paints (2 yellows, 1 blue, and a pink), a converted Space Marine Chaplain on Bike, a base with a destroyed Dreadnought on it (It's for a Falcon), 2 boxes of Fire Dragons, 20 Skeletons, Chaos Knights (The old metal ones with the cool champion), and 2 boxes of Rangers!!

Now to explain why there was no update last night.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/0ba01847.jpg
I feel that that may explain enough? ;)

Oh and I almost forgot, the best present of all today was this.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/DireAvengers042.jpg
So now I am off on a binge of assembly, priming, painting, and ordering bases, starting with the models that are in my 1K list!
Enjoy!

-=Lazuli=-
31-05-2009, 02:06
Good excuse. How long is it going to take to paint all of it?

Kobayashi
31-05-2009, 02:09
A while, I won't be buying much of anything except the Titans until this is all 100% complete I feel. :)

Kobayashi
31-05-2009, 20:11
Quick update. I placed a large order for bases today.
6 60mm
5 sets of 10 25mm
1 40mm
:)
Now back to painting and building!
Cheers

Kobayashi
03-06-2009, 04:40
Ok sorry there hasn't been an update in a bit. My own pc is out for some strange reason. The wireless says that the ad-hoc connection is missing, but it isn't. :\
So here's a crappy photo I took on my phone, uploaded to photobucket via the free photobucket application for the iphone, and poster here using my moms computer. :)
This is the finished base for the Falcon, I finished it after 2 hours, the Falcon so far has about 30 minutes into it and I'm not pleased!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/eb607250.jpg
Enjoy! Should have some more work tomorrow morning. My summer school class at TCC ends at 8:30! :)

Kobayashi
04-06-2009, 21:10
Well unfortunately I'm still stuck in a craptastic situation. My moms computer is a hunk of junk, so I can barely post this on here, and my computer still won't connect to the internet. =\
Hopefully I can fix it so I can show the now almost finished Fire Dragons and Pathfinders!! :(

Xarius
04-06-2009, 21:42
very nice, luv the bazaar prezzies

-=Lazuli=-
06-06-2009, 23:43
You better fix your computer and get this log updated! JK. Nice Dread though.

Kobayashi
08-06-2009, 03:40
Well it still isn't fixed but my moms computer isn't as slow tonight so I managed to access my Photobucket account to retrieve this army shot of my 1000 pts.
:)
Now I just need to finish the Falcon and the 7 Dire Avengers, plus the bases for the Pathfinders and Fire Dragons and the army will be complete. So that should be done by the weekend!http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/f5fdf0e4.jpg
C&C
Lazuli I expect to see you at the doubles tournament next weekend.

-=Lazuli=-
08-06-2009, 13:54
Wait, what tournament? Nice army! Get your compueter to work and take better pictures...

Kobayashi
10-06-2009, 05:29
There's a doubles tournament this Saturday, I'm playing in it with Charles, so it's gonna be 1000 pts of Eldar and 1000 pts of new IG! :D

As for the computer, chances are I'll get my new laptop before my computer gets fixed, so when I update tomorrow, the crappy cell phone pictures will have to do! :(
Luckily today though, I got the majority of the bases for the last 7 Dire Avengers for my 1k list done, and I assembled the rest of the unit! Tomorrow I'll paint them and have them done by the end of the night. :)

-=Lazuli=-
10-06-2009, 19:31
Crap. On Saturday I have peoples coming over and a martial arts test. Wish I could go though.

PICTURES I NEED!

Kobayashi
10-06-2009, 20:46
I'll upload some pictures tonight. I finished and sealed the bases for the 7 Dire Avengers and got the black done on the Avengers themselves. I'll have the Red and the Metallics done tonight. On my lunch break from work today I'm running out to get a pot of Adeptus Battle Grey because I plan to work on the Falcon for the next two days to have my 1K list completely painted! :D
So yeah, pictures tonight!

Kobayashi
19-06-2009, 04:31
Sorry for the lack of updates, I should be able to get some pictures up this weekend. Just wanted to let you guys know that this log isn't dead, it should be up and in full swing again next week. I turn 19 on the 26th so hopefully I'll get a new laptop as a present!! :D

-=Lazuli=-
21-06-2009, 16:02
Yes, than you better update. or else.

Kobayashi
21-06-2009, 18:54
Ok oK, here's the update for the past couple of weeks! :)
I've been doing more building than painting!

Missing are the Shining Spears, the Autarch, and the last unit of Fire Dragons.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers045.jpg
The completed infantry with the Armour.

My 7 man squad from the Doubles list, the last 3 will be painted and assembled soon.

So there you have it. An update!
Now I am off to assemble the shining spears and Autarch!
Cheers

Nocturn
21-06-2009, 19:12
fine stuff you have there, kobayashi ;)
the colors are really good, nice to see so many different eldar around here on warseer.
and a lot of tanks, too :-)
good luck for the game then :-)

Noc

-=Lazuli=-
21-06-2009, 19:26
Nocturn, you're on this log too? Finally you update Kobayashi, colser pictures of the pathfinders?

Kobayashi
21-06-2009, 19:27
Thanks :)
My army for the game is 49 troops, 6 Bikes, and 6 Tanks, only 20 of the models in the army can't be used for extreme tank hunting! haha

Lazuli-
Maybe later! :)
I'm assembling more models.

-=Lazuli=-
21-06-2009, 19:28
Now, I will NOT let you play my guard...

Kobayashi
21-06-2009, 19:30
Haha why not?

-=Lazuli=-
21-06-2009, 19:32
Because I use Armored Company and last time I played an Anti-tank Eldar, well, I lost (not suprising eh?).

Kobayashi
21-06-2009, 19:37
Haha well that truly isn't surprising! :)
You could play me at Apoc. Level, I mean I'd have a little trouble killing all your super heavies!
But they'd only be armour value 12! :p

Kobayashi
22-06-2009, 06:12
Tonights update is here! :)
I got quite a bit assembled, priming starts tomorrow.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/938e4b27.jpg
Added the 3 War Walkers, 5 Shining Spears Exodites, and an Exodite Autarch! :D
This next picture is a quick snapshot of the conversions I did for the War Walkers.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/3053fb22.jpg

On another note, my Eldars record so far is 1/2/2 (W/D/L)
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
22-06-2009, 13:49
"This next picture is a quick snapshot of the conversions I did for the War Walkers."
if we could see them. :) Your record seem good (to my standards...). My Guard record is now 0/infinate/0 (W/D/L) (well actually, I got one draw and have 11 loses...)

Kobayashi
22-06-2009, 13:53
Haha, I'll get a better photo today since I now have some time before work. :)
I'm actually about to order some more bases, browse Forgeworld, prime, then take a nap so yeah. hah

-=Lazuli=-
22-06-2009, 19:15
Can I see close-ups if the Rangers or Pathfinders or whatever they're supposed to be called? Oh, and reply to my log like you used to! :)

Kobayashi
24-06-2009, 06:13
Never! haha
No really though, I can't get good close ups of the Pathfinders, so you'll have to wait a while. And I'll reply to your log when I have time I'm just quickly logging on here and throwing up my updates! :)
Here's yesterdays update.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/DireAvengers052.jpg
The Autarch on Jetbike is almost done, just have to do a little more work on him! :)
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Commissions/DireAvengers056.jpg
Death Jester WIP for my friends Harlequin Troupe. Should have him 100% soon.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Commissions/DireAvengers055.jpg
Zhafor from Forgeworld. Not sure what I'll do with him, maybe start a Khorne army. Any thoughts? FW order is being placed Saturday for my Revenant, so I have to decide by then what else I need.

Well, that's my update, I'll hopefully finish the Autarch tomorrow, maybe the Death Jester if I'm lucky.
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
24-06-2009, 13:39
Well, the Eldar look good as always and about Zhafor... You should either paint him OR give him to me (JK). The guy on the cold one looks like a dark eldar. I want the dead commisar on the pole, but I would have to buy the whole model :(

Nocturn
24-06-2009, 14:03
hey there,
your zhafor looks very promising, and ah, now i remember where i saw the death comissar a while ago ;).
keep it up,

Noc

Lu&Pu
24-06-2009, 23:47
Concerning your Eldar, they look sweet. :D

That Autarch is really looking a bit Dark-Eldar-ish but well he is riding an evil saurian...he has to look evil too.

And belonging to Zhafor..he looks bloody as he his. And me likes that. Curious what you will do to him.

-=Lazuli=-
25-06-2009, 02:51

Oh, with Kobayashi's rate of completing anything, Zhafor will be finished in say 2 years (EPIC FAILURE!)?

I want to see him done too! Looks great.

Munting
25-06-2009, 10:45
wow! this is amazing,
Im not aware if its been asked but how do you do the black armour?

-=Lazuli=-
25-06-2009, 13:27
Kobayashi primes the models grey, then white and washes them with black until he likes them! Or something like that. Add a tutuorial!

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 03:26
Wow, I think my email has been an epic failure! I not once received notice of a single reply since Lazuli's first post after my update!
Munting:
Lazuli has my armour down fairly well, but is missing a few steps. I'll create a tutorial in the next few days! :D

Lu&PU:
Thanks :) I wanted the Autarch to look a little demented, since after all, he is leading the Exodite portion of my force. Well that, and the laughing god demands dementia and my Revenant Titans are pretty much going to be based on Ichigo as a Holo from Bleach.

Now for my update. I'll have another later though.
Finished a squad of 6 Fire Dragons in a day, start to finish, including assembling, priming, and painting, they just got their dullcoat applied.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/fd001.jpg
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/fd002.jpg

Enjoy.
Pathfinders will be done in a few hours.

-=Lazuli=-
01-07-2009, 03:28
^ ^ ^
Is that Fire Dragon booing me?
Great work! Can you tell me the gold recipe?

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 03:30
Yes he is booing you! :D
Sure, I'll give it to you later!

lapislazuli
01-07-2009, 05:54
Do you mind sharing how you made the bases for the eldar? Or were they bought off the shelve like that from some special place?

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 06:02
The bases were bought here.
http://dragonforge.com/
Create casts with tons of bases!

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 06:27
Well it's 12:30 and I've been painting for 8 straight hours now, so here is my stopping point tonight. The pathfinders are almost done, touch ups and basing is all that is left! :D
They'll be finished early tomorrow and then I can start on the War Walkers. So tomorrow, we're looking at finishing the Pathfinders, the War Walkers, and getting a Falcon started.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/fd.jpg

Enjoy.

Munting
01-07-2009, 11:00
All your models are gorgeous!

A tutorial might just make me want to mimic them ;)

thanks Lazui,


and those pathfinders are probally the bestmodels I've saw in ages Kob!

-=Lazuli=-
01-07-2009, 13:26
Oh gods. I think Kobayashi is learning to finish faster than me! Oh no. Let's see how I many skeletons (oh joy) I can paint today .

Emilio101
01-07-2009, 13:38
Love the thumbs down! Is that a reference to ancient rome? If so it really suits the fire dragon imagery.

Keep it up!

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 17:43
Emilio:
It was actually an accidental snip with the clippers when cleaning flash! :)

Thanks for the comments guys! I just woke up and am eating breakfast, then I'll get to work on churning out models for your amusement!

2000 pt game tomorrow at the new GW grand opening. I played this guys 1850 list Monday and tabled him and held 2 of the 4 objectives! :D

-=Lazuli=-
01-07-2009, 19:57
Are you going to the one in Frisco? Does that mean you won't go to Grapevine anymore?!? Let's see if you can paint more than me today!

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 20:24
I live closer to Grapevine, I just promised Dallas I'd go to the Frisco stores Grand Opening if they manage to open tomorrow. If they don't I'll be at Grapevine tomorrow and Saturday.

Well the Pathfinders are done, once they dry I'll take pictures. Starting the War Walkers now!

-=Lazuli=-
01-07-2009, 20:25
Cool, I want to go to the new store tommarow, but it's kinda far away and I don't think my parents will take me. Tell me how it is! Oh, and you get discounts at Grand Openings?

Kobayashi
01-07-2009, 20:58
Not sure, I think there is a raffle and some other events though.

Kobayashi
02-07-2009, 00:21
As promised, finished Pathfinders and War Walkers! :)
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/eldar001.jpg
Up next is a Wave Serpent. Off to prime.
Enjoy!

-=Lazuli=-
02-07-2009, 03:40
Looking good. Are there no guys inside? I win today! Got more stuff painted than you!

Kobayashi
02-07-2009, 03:54
Nope no guys inside, They're much cooler that way. The Wave Serpent is almost complete, and I'm not done working on it!

-=Lazuli=-
02-07-2009, 03:56
You're just lazy. I guess they are powered by the spirit stone things.

Kobayashi
02-07-2009, 04:20
No I hate the Guardian Pilots, so yes, the Spirit Stones pilot them. :)

Kobayashi
02-07-2009, 05:20
Well here's the update! :)
Quick shot of the still wet Wave Serpent. Enjoy!
I'm about to crash for the night, then GW early tomorrow!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/eldar004.jpg

-=Lazuli=-
02-07-2009, 19:56
I think you went overboard on the wash. You might want to paint another layer over it. The cockpit looks great! Do i see MIG Pigment? Where can I get some (perferably not online)?

Azriel45
02-07-2009, 19:59
That's a very interesting mottled look for the serpent.

Kobayashi
03-07-2009, 01:46
Thanks guys. The Serpent looks better in person and dry! :)

MIG Pigments can be bought at Coolminiornot, TheWarstore, or eBay. I bought mine on eBay.
Update of stuff later tonight.

eltanko
03-07-2009, 01:49
I like the colour scheme on the Serpent, looks good. very different way of painting it, but looks really good. like its been worn over time by air friction.

ElTanko

Kobayashi
03-07-2009, 01:50
Thanks! :)
I should be getting it completely finished tonight, maybe work on the Falcon too. I'll see what I get done!

-=Lazuli=-
03-07-2009, 02:10
Oh, it looks funny because it's wet. Great job. Dry pictures? How's the new GW?

Kobayashi
03-07-2009, 02:12
PR didn't open so I went to Grapevine today.
I'll snap some pictures later, working on stuff right now.

-=Lazuli=-
03-07-2009, 02:13
I see. So when are they going to try and open it?

Kobayashi
03-07-2009, 02:16
Tomorrow for sure. :)
I'm not gonna go though.

Kobayashi
03-07-2009, 07:04
Well here is a small update. A WIP Squig Hopper for my friends Night Goblin army! :)
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Commissions/eldar006.jpg
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Commissions/eldar008.jpg
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Commissions/eldar007.jpg

Quick paint job, think it's coming out pretty well so far. The black is still a little wet, but it should look good when it is 100% done!

I'll do some more work on him and some other stuff tomorrow!

eltanko
03-07-2009, 19:36
Thats an excellent model, Goblins are so goofy!!!
nice start so far, are you only painting the one?

ElTanko

-=Lazuli=-
04-07-2009, 05:35
Eww, mold line. :) Looking good.

Kobayashi
05-07-2009, 19:44
Eltanko:
Yes they are very goofy! :)
For right now it's just one, he may have me paint the rest of the unit though.

Lazuli:
The client did the cleaning and priming, I'm just painting! :)

Here's a rather large update. Built a second Wraithlord yesterday, today I'll start sculpting him up, then work on painting the first one.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/77f82988.jpg

And then here are some pictures of my Apocalypse mechanized armies! :)

On another note, I won a Bonesinger and 2 Farseer's on eBay. Now I'm just one Farseer and five Autarch's short of my apocalypse list!

-=Lazuli=-
06-07-2009, 02:20
My full army shot looks better :). You broke the Dreadnought :(

That's why you hire me, I clean the mold lines :) You're working on the Ultras again!

Kobayashi
06-07-2009, 03:26
I didn't break the dreadnought! :)

I wouldn't hire you! :P And I've been doing some thinking and I may paint them as Sons of Medusa because I like the scheme, which would mean I'd probably sell both Dreadnoughts and strip the half painted stuff.
You want to buy them? Or trade me 2 of the other FW dreads for them?

Kobayashi
06-07-2009, 04:42
The sculpting and cleaning on the Wraithlord is complete! :)
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/randoms002.jpg

Also built a Terminator for another project.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Chaos%20Space%20Marines/randoms003.jpg
Enjoy. Should have a bit more done tonight!

Kobayashi
06-07-2009, 06:49
And now he is primed and based! :D
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/wraithlord.jpg

1850 game tomorrow morning as part of the new Eye of Terror campaign at my store!

Emilio101
06-07-2009, 07:21
These look great unpainted. Can't wait to see them with a lick of paint!

Emilio

Kobayashi
06-07-2009, 07:23
Should have them done by Wednesday! So make sure you check back the next couple of days for them!

-=Lazuli=-
06-07-2009, 14:04
Why you take so long? :) when are you working on the Ultramarines, and when are you going to put tutorials, and be sure to make a tutorial on the ultramarines while your at it! :)

Kobayashi
06-07-2009, 15:42
Hahah I take so long because I don't have much time to work on anything!

Nocturn
06-07-2009, 16:36
hey koba :-)

stances of the lords looking good so far :-) good idea with the cutted arm and replacing it with the sword blade :-) he looks like he is slowly searching trough the ruins for some survivors, and that is good :-)

Keep it up (and painted ;))

Noc

-=Lazuli=-
06-07-2009, 19:32
They look like mini titans. If I could have an eldar army of wrathlord and guard only, I would get them.

Munting
06-07-2009, 21:46
your eldar are definately in my top 5 fave armies on here,
maybe even first :P

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 04:41
Awesome Munting! That is amazing because there are some great armies!
Hopefully I'll keep you entertained!

Lazuli: That is exactly what I wanted from the second one, unfortunately, I don't want to redo the first to mimic the Revenant.

And I agree, Wraithlords, plastic Wraithguard, and Guard Tanks! :D

Nocturn:
I don't know about slowly! ;)

Unfortunately no painting done today and I lost my game! :(
It was really sad!
But I know why I couldn't kill damn Battle Wagons! I forgot my Wave Serpents had bright lances not missile launchers!
Yriel did good though, he hosed several nobs with his large blast!
On another note, I had to open a Paypal dispute today with a guy from Hurst* because it's been over 15 days and my Avatar from FW still hasn't shown up!
I'll get painting done tomorrow.
Cheers!

*for those who don't know, Hurst is only about 30 minutes from where I live, so it really pisses me off he hasn't shipped it or anything yet!

Kriegfreak
07-07-2009, 06:14

Lazuli: That is exactly what I wanted from the second one, unfortunately, I don't want to redo the first to mimic the Revenant.

And I agree, Wraithlords, plastic Wraithguard, and Guard Tanks! :D

Nocturn:
I don't know about slowly! ;)

Unfortunately no painting done today and I lost my game! :(
It was really sad!
But I know why I couldn't kill damn Battle Wagons! I forgot my Wave Serpents had bright lances not missile launchers!
Yriel did good though, he hosed several nobs with his large blast!
On another note, I had to open a Paypal dispute today with a guy from Hurst* because it's been over 15 days and my Avatar from FW still hasn't shown up!
I'll get painting done tomorrow.
Cheers!

*for those who don't know, Hurst is only about 30 minutes from where I live, so it really pisses me off he hasn't shipped it or anything yet!

He's ripping you off :) If he lived in Hurdt and you live in Cedar Hill why doesn't he a) drive it over there or b) meet at gamesworkshops or c) meet you at one of the independent retailers in hurst
(there's at least 2). See, he scammed you (I think).

Are Wraithguard plastic?

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 17:56
Thanks Kriegfreak! :)

Yeah I know he's scamming, thats why I filed the dispute.

The Wraithguard are metal at $17 for one, the Wraithlords are plastic.

The list I'm running this weekend has 15 Wraithguards and 2 Wraithlords in it!

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 18:14
Yup it did! :)
But that's ok because I got what I wanted!

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 19:33
For your painting enjoyment!
I actually got some painting done! The Wraithlord is about 50% done!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/wraithlord002.jpg
Enjoy! Finish him tonight!

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 19:48
Thanks! I'll smooth it out in later painting stages. Much inspiration stolen from Radiums Revenant Titan!

-=Lazuli=-
07-07-2009, 19:49
Wow he looks really cool. I like his head.

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 19:50
Thanks Lazuli! Unfortunately I can't do more work on him till later tonight! But I will post more pics of him hopefully finished tonight! Oh and I'll post the 1850 list I'm running this weekend!

-=Lazuli=-
07-07-2009, 19:57
You should post the list you will use against me.

Radium
07-07-2009, 19:57
Wow, I'm humbled to see my painting actually inspired someone to something!
Good start so far, but now finish it! I really, really want to see what it'll look like when it's done ;).

-=Lazuli=-
07-07-2009, 19:59
@ Radium: You inspired me to get Eldar. I never finshed them but that doesn't matter.

Kobayashi
07-07-2009, 20:32
Haha Well Radium your Eldar are truly inspiring! :)
I'll finish him tonight and post pictures after work! :D
Lazuli:
I don't know what list I'd run against you yet. I don't know how many points!

Kobayashi
08-07-2009, 20:58
Well The wraithlord is done minus the base. I didn't get to finish it as I had to work late. :(

Sorry about the dark pictures and the poor photo of the sword, but I'm rushing to get ready for work! haha
I'll take a better one tonight when the base is done!

-=Lazuli=-
08-07-2009, 20:59
Looks cool, go back to all you Eldar and paint the gems (like blend them)!

Kobayashi
08-07-2009, 21:26
All the Gems are painted the same way! I don't want shiny gems!

-=Lazuli=-
09-07-2009, 02:42
Your just lazy, see my Warwalker and Avatar, ALL the gems are painted. I guess the spririt stones don't have any "spirits" in them. all your Eldar must be dead :)

Kobayashi
09-07-2009, 05:33
They are all dead! haha
:D
Thats the point!

-=Lazuli=-
09-07-2009, 13:29
For not painting th gems, your Eldar can only move half the distance they normaly can and all their stats are halfed :) (Than, I would still lose) any chance of an update?

Kobayashi
09-07-2009, 18:49
Hahah yes you probably still would! :)
Yeah I'm working on the update!

Solid_Smurf
09-07-2009, 19:41
Man no matter where I go I always run into you.
The Eldar are looking good.
I got something green up my sleeve when you want to get a game in.

Kobayashi
09-07-2009, 19:43
When do you want to play!?
And if by Green you mean Orks, then for sure!
Besides, I think you joined here for me! haha

Kobayashi
09-07-2009, 20:55
Well here's today's minor update! I got distracted from painting by something that arrived finally! :D
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/wraithlord009.jpg

Here's a size comparison for those who haven't see one! It also shows were I've gotten painting!

09-07-2009, 20:57
You did't get ripped off? (*curses* now I have to fight that Avatar, I know how good they are).

@Kobayashi/Solid Smurf: Do(es) he/you go to the GW in Grapevine?

Solid_Smurf
09-07-2009, 21:12
I go to the Preston Road GW now, I used to go to the Grapevine Store.

-=Lazuli=-
09-07-2009, 21:14
Yay somebody else form the North Texas area on Warseer. The PR one is too far from me :( well than again so is Grapevine...

Kobayashi
09-07-2009, 21:23
Grayson if your going to play me it's at Grapevine! HAHA
I can't afford the tolls to PR from where I live!
Nam, yeah the Avatar is nasty! So is my new 1850 list!

-=Lazuli=-
09-07-2009, 21:24
AJ, can I see the list to make a counter list? Please? I'll lose anyways (you know I will).

-=Lazuli=-
10-07-2009, 02:52
Hey Kabob, sadly this kid (me) has a higher thread rating than you. Not to be bragging, just trying to encourage you to update more.

Kobayashi
10-07-2009, 10:15

-=Lazuli=-
10-07-2009, 19:02
That looks like a good list, and I'm supposed to beat that how? :) Two Wraithlosrds look like a little too much, but that's just me.

Kobayashi
11-07-2009, 07:02
It is a nasty list! haha :)
I have a slightly better one for 1500 pts!

-=Lazuli=-
11-07-2009, 18:57
I calulate a 98.496 % chance of being massacred by turn two if I use and armoured company..

Kobayashi
12-07-2009, 05:24
Haha nice calculation! I blew through 2 Battle Wagons and 40 Boys in two turns with a 10 man Wraithguard Squad! It was beautiful! :D
Now I need to figure out how to convert plastic Wraithguard!!!
Photo update here soon!

Kobayashi
12-07-2009, 07:46
Well it took a little longer to update than I thought it would but my mind has been elsewhere! :D
Anyway, tonight I assembled 5 Terminators, 1 Sergeant, 1 Ork Warboss, 2 Farseers, 1 Bone Singer, based 3 Chaos Terminators, and a Dreadnought.
Oh and did I mention I based them all too?! Cuz yeah, that's kind of important! ;)

Enjoy!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/40K003.jpg
Notice the slight converting on the Farseers!

All together now!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Ultramarines/40K002.jpg

Tomorrow, or well today, I plan on running up to the local hobby store for some paints and a new can of primer. I'll also be placing an order for some Pro-Create I think. Haven't decided yet.
Well C&C!
Cheers

-=Lazuli=-
12-07-2009, 19:43
Bonesinger? I really like that model. And you have orks now, I thought you didn't like them. The coversion for the metal guys are cool too.

Kobayashi
12-07-2009, 20:13
I just have the one warboss. The rest I already sold to a friend for his Ork army! :)
I'm finishing up assembling and basing the 10 Marines from the AoBR box, then I'll base and work on my Sternguard. Hopefully I'll get one of the two Land Raiders done since I haven't gotten to run out for primer or anything!

Solid_Smurf
13-07-2009, 04:26
I don't know if I like the DA heads on the Farseers. I want to see it painted first.

Kobayashi
13-07-2009, 04:56
You have! :)
You've seen my already painted Farseer which has a Dire Avenger head!
Update in a few!

Solid_Smurf
13-07-2009, 05:01
Oh snap I didn't even notice, yeah I like.

Kobayashi
13-07-2009, 05:22
Haha there you go! :)
Update time!
Today before a family function thingy I got 10 Marines, 11 Scouts, 5 Sternguard, and 1 Vampire conversion assembled and based! Enjoy the fruits of my labor!
Another 1,850 pt game tomorrow, slightly tweaked list in progress.

Solid_Smurf
13-07-2009, 05:31
Oh man are you entering the wizard contest?
If so at what store?

Kobayashi
13-07-2009, 05:32
There's a wizard contest?
I bought this model like 3 months ago and never assembled him!

Solid_Smurf
13-07-2009, 05:33
Yeah an Empire Wizard Painting contest.

Kobayashi
13-07-2009, 05:34
oh well he is a vampire not a wizard

-=Lazuli=-
13-07-2009, 14:09
Wizard Painting Contest? Where?
I think it was in the WD only....

I like the Marine with the black leg that's stepping onto is base...

Bane_sword
13-07-2009, 14:26
When i first saw the name of the log i laughed and thought this log wouldn't be so good, but then i checked him out and i must say that i was impressed. I like your paintjob.

Solid_Smurf
13-07-2009, 15:36
Wizard Painting Contest? Where?
I think it was in the WD only....

I like the Marine with the black leg that's stepping onto is base...

I know we are doing it at the PR store ask at the GV store.

-=Lazuli=-
13-07-2009, 15:43
When is this? sounds fun.

Kobayashi
13-07-2009, 16:59
Thanks guys. I'm heading to GW to play a game now, update tonight! :)

Kobayashi
14-07-2009, 19:10
Well I haven't gotten any painting done! I'm slacking, but I've just been so tired this week. I wrote a 2500 pt list to try this weekend though!

The 1850 game yesterday was rough, but I pulled out another victory! Eldrad and 2 Warlocks killed a squad of Nobs, the painboy, and a mekboy!
That was only after his Warboss charged a Wraithlord and suffered instant death! :D

I'll post my new list here shortly!

Kobayashi
15-07-2009, 07:52
As promised here's the list!
Eldrad Ulthran
Warlocks- 8, 5 Destructor, 1 Enhance, Singing Spears

Karandras
Striking Scorpions- 10, Scorpion Claw, Shadowstrike, Stalker

Wraithguard- 10, Warlock, Enhance, Singing Spear
Wraithguard- 10, Warlock, Enhance, Singing Spear

Dire Avengers- 10, Exarch, Shimmershield, Power Weapon, Bladestorm
Wave Serpent- Twin-linked Bright Lance, Star & Vectored Engines, Shuriken Cannon

Wraithlord- Bright Lance, Flamers, Wraithsword
Wraithlord- Bright Lance, Flamers, Wraithsword

Fire Prism- Vectored & Star Engines, Holo-fields, Spirit Stones, Shuriken Cannon.

Not going to list the points, but it is 2,500 pts total!

Mull that over and let me know what you think.
I'm still working on it. I'm trying to decide what direction I want to take my Eldar.

Oh and on another note, the Void Dragon and Titan will be here by the weekend! :D

-=Lazuli=-
15-07-2009, 13:57
Maybe if I bring a few nukes I might win against it....

Did you play in the 'ard boyz?

Kobayashi
15-07-2009, 20:25
Hell no! haha
I don't like 'ard boyz tournaments! lol

You could win against it with enough tanks! :)

-=Lazuli=-
15-07-2009, 20:27
To be fair my list is
2 platoons (min sized), command squad, 7 chimeras, 2 leman Russes, hellhound.

Kobayashi
15-07-2009, 20:30
Is that 2500 pts?

-=Lazuli=-
15-07-2009, 20:38
No, 1850. 2000 adds an extra Russ. Oh, the above two russes are demolishers ad the extra one for 2000 has a bormal russ. We ca play after I get my models.... $100 and I can buy 7 Chimeras. And than I have buy the russes and hellhound...

Kobayashi
15-07-2009, 20:41
Haha ok Nam! We'll play when you finish your army!

-=Lazuli=-
15-07-2009, 20:43
Or last time i went I borrowed a bunch of leman russes (minus the turrent) to proxy as chimeras! It looked quite funny.

Kobayashi
15-07-2009, 21:11
Haha nice! :)

Kobayashi
16-07-2009, 05:12
Well today I drew a picture to humiliate my friend who for the thousandth time cut his hand open working on models! :)
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Warseer/payden.jpg

After doodling it I proceeded to post it on his Facebook page. :)

I enjoy myself. Now to do some work on miniatures!

-=Lazuli=-
16-07-2009, 13:24
Haha, very nice. No hobby knife for you kids.

(Including me!) There's another kid I played (IDK if it was Payden) who had Guard and went to the ER enough times so that everyone there knows him already. I cut myself a bunch of times too, I had a drilll bit go halfway through my finger too. Get back to painting!

Kobayashi
16-07-2009, 18:47
See I'm not that bad, I haven't really hurt myself doing anything hobby related since I was younger. Maybe your age. Haha!
But it wasn't Payden, he has no Guard armies!

Kobayashi
16-07-2009, 20:00
Well I did some painting today! :D
The Bonesinger is coming along nicely!
Unfortunately the photo washed out the colours and is making it look a lot flatter than it really is. Hopefully the final photo's will do it justice!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/bonesinger001.jpg
Enjoy!

-=Lazuli=-
16-07-2009, 20:21
Looking Good! One of my favorite models!

Kobayashi
16-07-2009, 20:27
I need more than 1, so I'm still hoping to get 2 more! haha

-=Lazuli=-
16-07-2009, 20:29
No, do you have to make me jealous?! :)

Kobayashi
16-07-2009, 20:57
Haha yes! I am working on getting the second one, but if anyone reading this I'll buy one if you have it!

Solid_Smurf
16-07-2009, 21:28
What is the bone singer going to count as? Farseer?

-=Lazuli=-
16-07-2009, 21:31
I think it will count as a bonesinger. I think there are rules for them, I'll go check my codex.

Kobayashi
16-07-2009, 22:18
No rules for the bonesinger but in my army they will be farseers or warlocks.

Munting
16-07-2009, 22:33
wow looking good mate!
i always drop by your blog for updates and stuff :)
but only comment rarely!
so i thought id say keep it up :D

-=Lazuli=-
17-07-2009, 02:38
Wait, there are no rules for them, so what do they do, they repair Wraithbone and stuff right?

Kobayashi
17-07-2009, 08:30
wow looking good mate!

Well you should comment more often and I'd be more inclined to update more! :)
That goes for the rest of you who lurk too!


Wait, there are no rules for them, so what do they do, they repair Wraithbone and stuff right?
Yup pretty much.
:)
I'm going to strip him and restart him tomorrow.

Kobayashi's current status: Excitedly awaiting goodies from Forgeworld. :skull:

Update later!

17-07-2009, 08:58

I want a bonesinger model, their sexy to boot.

Kobayashi
17-07-2009, 09:03
That they are!
But damn you for posting the second I get in bed. Gotta love iPhones.
Sleep now, model work in the morning before work. May play my marines this weekend!

As mentioned earlier, I want one too! Can't wait to see it painted Kabob/AJ! Wait, why are you stripping him, I thought you were off to a good start...

Ahhh bonesingers DOW "I Shape The Wraithbone" ;)


Lovely model, will look wicked in your scheme.
Hope your noticing I'm posting more often ;)

Kobayashi
17-07-2009, 16:32
I am noticing! :)

I decided I want to paint him differently I think. Still not 100% sure.

Kobayashi
18-07-2009, 06:01
IT'S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE REVENANT TITAN AND VOID DRAGON ARRIVED AT REX'S HOUSE TODAY!!
Sorry for the caps, I am just excited as tomorrow morning I shall be nursing my new baby to completion!
To wet your appetite here is the base, priming once it dries. Building the Void Dragons tomorrow and painting this one. Bonesinger should be done tomorrow too, and maybe an Ork but I don't know!

whats a void dragon?

Kobayashi
18-07-2009, 06:28
It's a massive Forgeworld flyer for the Eldar! :D

Kobayashi
19-07-2009, 10:43
Current status: Bummed that the Revenant didn't come today. :( It's ok though, Rex was sick so he couldn't come to GW to drop off the Revenant and Void Dragon.

But it is 4:45 and I've only slept for about an hour. Later today I will be painting the base, hopefully finishing it completely, and then working of some sculpting on Arhra, the fallen Phoenix Lord, AKA Karandras count as. (He was Karandras mentor.)

On another note, the new Iron Clad and the new Vulcan He'Stan models are amazing.

The new Hellhound and Demolisher kits are even better! :D
I am going to do a small Mechanized force, possible Daemon Hunters with Chimera's converted to mimic the Centaur from Forgeworld.

I think that is it for now, more later. :)

-=Lazuli=-
20-07-2009, 01:49
Yay, FORGEWORLD!. Great base btw. Waiting for a major update...

Kobayashi
20-07-2009, 05:04
Haha yeah yay! Unfortunately I can't say I got anything done :(
I really didn't do anything today.

It's bigger than a Void Whale, but smaller than a Void Leviathan.

My breath is baited, or bated, I can never remember which.

Kobayashi
21-07-2009, 07:40
Thanks for the comments guys, sadly Rex and I just missed each other at the shop today so I still have no FW. :(
My latest 1850 list got decimated so I'm working on a new one. I kind of am on my like 10th version. I keep ripping them up out of frustration.

I will have the FW for sure on Friday and an update tomorrow, I hope :(

Kobayashi
21-07-2009, 21:26
Here is the promised update!
The first Wraithlord is 100% done still drying from the Dullcoate, tonight I add the grass!
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/Eldar009.jpg
Started the next MC, plan to have him and the other Wraithlord done by Saturday.
http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo161/WarForgeStudios/Personal%20Armies/Eldar/Eldar010.jpg

On another note, I will begin my Wraith-construct project this weekend as well as the Revenant and hopefully finish some Ork commissions on Saturday.
More tonight! Comment! :)

I like the look of that wraithlord, its a lot darker in colour to usual Eldar armies, but makes him look a bit "stealthier" nice one.

I'm digging the blue on the avatar, I'm so tired of seeing the red and orange, its nice to see the blue change it up a bit.

My breath is baited, or bated, I can never remember which.
Bated breath. As in abate, i believe.
I love etymology.

Man you've almost got too many models! :D It's guys like you that make GW go around.

Anyway, I like your eldar so far, It will be interesting to see what you make of the avatar. He is shaping up nicely. :)

You've got massive amount of stuff to paint so keep at it!

When I get that email in my inbox , "Reply to Kobayashi's log of epic failures!" I always get a sudden urge to go and spend every penny in my wallet on Eldar.


That Avartar looks sick man, different to the others out there.
Good stuff :)
I'll return back to the shadows of warseer to lurk now.
