Archon and Seer in 2022

Archon and Seer in 2022

So it’s a new year, and that means a new painting goal for my hobby gaming. Last year I worked on a lot of models across a lot of different armies, and this year it’s time to focus. I’m going to stick with the one-PL-a-day model for my progress, but keep things clustered in the realm of all things Aeldari. 365 Power Level (or more) of models painted for Aeldari forces. I’m focused on Drukhari, but I plan on splashing in some Craftworlds, Ynnari, and even maybe some Harlequins at some point. It will mean some steady commitment, but I’m arranging some big game events to narratively keep my focus (and painting goals) on track.

I also found the awesome photo of actual galaxies and their connection patterns that I used as the cover photo for this post, and it absolutely reminds of the Webway description from 40k fiction. So I’m going to find a way to do some sort of big webway game soon and use this as the image.

Started the year with a fair push of completing models. Wanted to round out my ability to do a Realspace Raid by adding a Drukhari Haemonculus and a unit of five Wracks to my force.

Was a bit fiddly to assemble, but I like the way they turned out. Was fun to have a model where the red was much more accent and occasional.
These models have a lot going on with them, so I tried to keep it as simple as I could with some of the color choices. I like that their back banners (literal racks for the Wracks) are like deformed versions of the ones that squad leaders, Incubi, and characters have.

I definitely will need more Wracks to make the unit durable enough to hold objectives, but it’s at least a start for small games.

Also, finished up the first of two Ravagers. Went for the one with triple disintegrator cannons first. While I know that the one with Dark Lances will be overall more effective in games, the idea of having a strong basis for good AP and 2 damage shots was just too tempting.

I’m extra happy with the white of the sails on this one, as the picture has them meshing with the background white pretty effectively to the point of being invisible. These take a ton of work with the crew members, but I think it was worth it in the end result.

Overall a solid start to the year of painting all sorts of Aeldari. Expect to see mostly Drukhari for a long portion of it, tho I’ll surely pick up the new releases that have been teased for the Craftworlds Eldar as I start to mess with those components of a force. And I’ve gotten myself a gift from Forgeworld for the end of the year successful painting that I’ll have to do up once I’ve got a bigger basis for this force. So some good things to look forward to.
