Yesterday Eric met me out at The Whiz, a great game store, and it was nice to get up there and meet some other gamers. We played a 1500 point game. Dark Angels vs. Eldar, mission was Big Guns with Vanguard Strike for deployment. The game went a full 7 turns and ended up being quite bloody ending with an Eldar victory (we were even on objectives but I was able to tip the points with Line Breaker, Warlord and First Blood).

This was my first time playing a proper game with Eldar in any edition of 40k and I learned a lot. The Wave Serpents were the star of the show (no surprise), the amount of accurate high strength fire they are capable is astonishing. Most small units don’t have a chance against them, regardless of armor as the weight of shots just buries them.

More games this coming weekend.

It has been a fair few weeks that we’ve posted anything and I wanted to thank Eric for getting the site back up and working. While the blog was down I got busy with Eldar building and painting through the first 500 points which I took to a tournament at Battleground. Did horribly only winning on of the five games but had a good time and met some good people.

The army is taking shape and while I only have the first 500 painted another 1000 points have been assembled, based and primed. More paint going down this weekend. Here are a few “in progress” images.

So, they are coming together. Looking forward to getting a couple of games in this coming weekend and the expanding the army out with another Spiritseer and a Wraithknight to reach 1850.
