    Eldar Warhost WIP - 105,000 Points (20 years of goodness)

    *Updated 10/04/2017 (Australian date format)

    Well this is probably overdue, however I finally got my rear into gear and began a blog on the collection I've been hoarding over the years and recently settled on a theme for. It has been a labour of love, especially seeking out all the rare items, organising customised goodies etc etc. All part of the fun I guess

    Anyone interested in seeing how this unfolds, they can do so here - http://wcwdb.blogspot.com.au

    The current timeframe is as follows;

    2013 - Basic troops completed (mostly done)
    2014 - HQ and armour completed (mostly done)
    2015 - All Warmachines completed (Beginning November 2013 - Jan 2018)
    2016 - Hiatus... lots of display case planning, cataloging of inventory, budgeting... general life stuff (you know the drill)
    2017 - Display case build commencing March (June completion date), all HQ models to be completed (July), current models in the field finished, last of the Titans (3) to ship (end of year)
    2018 - Wraith units, Harlequins, Rogue Trader miniatures, Armorcast transports
    2019 - Remaining Jetbikes & Wave Serpents plus a few other outliers
    2020 - Tome of the Dras'Volharr to be completed (marking 23 years)

    Given my profession requires long hours and weekend work, I don't find alot of time (despite having cysts regularly crop up in my wrist) to do the painting myself sadly. Just before anyone asks "Why aren't you painting these yourself"

    A full listing of all current models will be written up over the weekend. It will be faster than trying to update my Visio chart of the Warhost given the new additions.

    I envy you for having the one unreleased Farseer that I don't

    I really like the look of how the striking scorpions turned out. I was thinking about orange scorpions myself when I get around to carrying on with my Eldar

    Hendarion, I lucked out on that one - I found someone who had all four and did a "bulk price". Still chasing one unreleased model that seems to elude me despite knowing someone who has it

    Sunblitz, thanks mate, I was pretty chuffed as well with the results. Naturally alot of it looks better in the flesh (metal), however there is alot to go

    In the next month I expect a substantial amount to come back from multiple studio sources. Naturally i'll keep updating as things progress!

    Also you say that the jetbike farseer, warlocks and autarch were made by a friend overseas, are they custom sculpted? Some of them look more than simple conversions, and does this friend of yours have a shop or take orders?

    Well, these ones: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-cxbrSBCKkL...+Example+1.jpg
    are sculpted by Mr. Velard based on the sculpt-preview Jes Goodwin has shown on a games-day. Velard sells them on eBay. Personally I consider them something like a pirated item or counterfeits (as this is what Velard was and still is doing actually). However, you can find them here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251313933846
    For the others I have no clue, just have seen them on some other forums.

    He does, they are his own sculpts, and yes he is quite the master. Although the poor bugger gets swamped with work and it can take a few months at a time between conversations - let alone casting/shipping etc. I've been giving him some breathing space before asking to have the Farseer Jetbike Canopy cast up as one was missing from the batch. More than likely Customs fault as they opened the package.

    Speaking of Jetbikes, they're now underway

    http://wcwdb.blogspot.com.au/2013/09...-underway.html

    Also trying to work out what would make a good destroyed warmachine for a Titan scenic base that will begin in November - so I have a month to come up with something, then enough time to order it, break it to bits, convert it etc ready for painting.

    What a project! However I noticed the basing varies per studio rather than a theme to tie on the army? Does that not drive you mad ??? Spending all this money I'm sure you must want to field a themed display in your cabinet. I am currently half way through my dream 12000 pt Studio painted Necron Dynasty so trust me when I say I understand the costs! Lol every single mini is based on Scibor in my Dynasty!!

    Re: Eldar Warhost WIP - 60,000 Points (17 years of goodness)

    Thanks and absolutely what i've intended to do is have the models done, then get all the bases done by a local studio once I have them all back in my posession. Scibor bases of course will be used, but it isn't a cheap exercise to base close to 1330+ miniatures, so i'll be looking about to see how I can do it in an affordable manner

    For the most part the base colours are pretty close, but I do want something matching eventually. Good times indeed i've also yet to sort out a board made up of 12 2x2 tiles... including matching terrain. It will take that kind of space to have the whole army photographed in one place.

    holy crap this guy sells so much stuff I want lol. When I got some spare cash I know where it will go. Ebay is so wonderful, can find some awesome items on it, I seriously need to set aside some cash for unreleased models, i've seen quite a lot of them. I've bought some very rare models, but always keep wanting more.

    I just noticed, you have 4 FW revenants OMG, and so many other big FW kits, do see flyers missing, if I could I would take my eldar to something close to your army XD, however for now I plan to at least have 1 of each FW model, in the future, too busy on other stuff, but I'll get there for sure!

    I would have rather bought FW flyers than the GW ones, they're kinda ugly.

    Re: Eldar Warhost WIP - 60,000 Points (17 years of goodness)

    The flyers aren't missing there are eight FW flyers and six GW ones... not including the two Vampire class (Raider/Hunter)

    As for Titans, there are 8 in total... I have five Revenants (one Armorcast) and three Phantoms (one also Armorcast which has been made into a Warlock class).

    I'm currently running a poll to work out what super heavies I need to buy to break down as "scenic" pieces for the Titan bases. The Brass Scorpion is well in the lead so far.

    A little secret, I don't buy locally... I would indeed have to be, as you say, a billionaire! Plus trading sites certainly help ALOT. For example, metal Wraithguard here were $25AUD each, I was buying them at $5 each from the US at the time.

    This is a prime example, as I buy my goods from a mate in South Carolina at a substantial discount (even on US RRP) - http://wcwdb.blogspot.com.au/2013/09...s-to-come.html

    New update, 3/4 commissioned artists have got back to me with WIP shots (Farseer, Jetbike Warlocks, Shining Spears and Dire Avengers) - http://wcwdb.blogspot.com.au/2013/10...ates-ahoy.html

    Many pretty pictures of course

    Should see these finished off in the next couple of weeks, along with the arrival of a new Eldar shipment and rare goodies from the UK!

    don't you find it anoying how you can't use these in some tournament or Gw events, they usually don't allow non GW products. it's a something I've been thinking about. Those prototype bikes look fine to me, but these are clearly not GW products.

    Of course not, but GW stopped doing many events here in Aus, frankly they weren't much chop anyway. 99% of the tournaments run here are indie run etc.

    Sadly, the bikes look better than anything GW have done in recent years.
