Eldar

Brief

The Eldar teeter upon the precipice of annihilation and this race that once ruled the stars, fights a perpetual battle for survival. Few in number, they are an army of excellence, utilizing highly advanced technology and powerful psykers to defeat their foes

Farseer Gelladrill had cast the runes of fate for the third time and the result was the same. She kept discerning the sign of the death of Aeldari. Tracing back the threads of causality it was clear that a combined force of Ultramarines and Crimson Fist Astartes were about to attack a smaller force of Tau on the contested planet of Gabbrodon Theta. This in itself was of no great consequence but if her reading of the runes were correct they would then advance towards one of Ulthwé's maiden worlds and that could not be allowed. What further complicated the endevour was the craftworld was...
My first Dire Avenger Squad has been completed! This post is merely to display them and allow me to chalk them off my 'to do' list. They have actually seen action against a combined force of Ultramarines and Crimson Fists and acquitted themselves quite well. They are a pretty decent troop choice for the Eldar as they have a high rate of fire and enhanced overwatch.The models below have had their first coat of varnish (gloss) so they look a bit shiny. Once the second coat of mat varnish goes on they will look better methinks. I'm now waiting for an unseasonably warm spell due to my encounter...
A Raven Guard battle report. Victory against Eldar on the fields of Brimstone Games on Nov 11, 2017.

Fun game vs Ben. Thought I was getting shit kicked but the Primaris marines where quite versitile and soaked up enough damage to allow my contemptors to rain missiles on his two titans and the rest of his T6 + army. Was my first encounter with Eldar, bunch of sneaky sneakers

Some more models have been completed! As the Warhammer 40K train trundles along I'm making progress. As is unusual in the male dominated 41st millennium there are more female models painted this week than male. Some will be getting stuck in to 40k ASAP and the others will wend their way onto the gaming table via a more narrative route. So anyhow, bring out the lead!

A Necrons battle report. Defeat against Eldar on the fields of Brimstone Games on Jun 10, 2017.

Game 2 with The lion today, Necrons got tabled, Wraith Knight killed what it wanted at will.

Warriors were effective killing the Wraith guard, but couldn't take down much else.

A Blood Angels battle report. Draw against Eldar on the fields of Brimstone Games on Jun 10, 2017.

Game 1 of the day, blood Angels took on the Eldar. BA used the golden host and orbital intervention formations for some deep striking assault units. Fun game with an army I don't use much.

Game was a draw, BA was 2 inches away from Line breaker and could have won. Game ended turn 5.

An Eldar battle report. Victory against Dark Eldar on the fields of Brimstone Games on Jun 04, 2017.

In a battle to avoid the bottom of the table, me and Rob squared off with a hammer and anvil deployment, and i won all the key pregame rolls and turtled up around my void shield generator. My shooting was ok and eventually over a couple turns i whittled away some key elements of his forces,...
