1850 Army Showcase Update

Looks like my list has evolved since I last put this up. I swapped out the Fire Dragons for Guardians as I felt the Dragons didn't really do much for my playstyle.

I have also dropped the Mantle of the Laughing God from the first edition of the list and kept both Farseers exactly alike. I deploy the Farseers based on what powers they obtain from the roll. Warlord Traits are usually quite "meh" so I hardly alter my plans based on it.

So this is the latest iteration of the list, or version 5 of the list

Eldar v5, 1850 Points

Farseer: Jetbike, Witchblade, Runes of Witnessing
Farseer: Jetbike, Witchblade, Runes of Witnessing

Dire Avengers x5: Wave Serpent (TL Scatter Laser, Shuriken Cannon, Holo Fields)
Guardians x10: Wave Serpent (TL Scatter Laser, Shuriken Cannon, Holo Fields)
Guardians x10: Wave Serpent (TL Scatter Laser, Shuriken Cannon, Holo Fields)
Jetbikers x3
Jetbikers x3
Jetbikers x3

Fast Attack
Warp Spiders x8
Warp Spiders x8

War Walkers x3: Each armed with Scatter Lasers x2
Wraithknight: Heavy Wraithcannons x2

I notice also a trend. I tend to duplicate the units I like a lot. I guess it can't be helped. Added a unit of Jetbikes to mitigate the Farseer from being alone and dying a horrid death usually. 

I target to complete all units to basecoat by 12th May 2014 as I want to play against Abdullah at PI Midpoint. This store has a fully painted policy, meaning no playing with unpainted minis. It is loosely enforced (i.e. you can skip details and no one will hold it against you) but they expect everything to have 3 colours with bases done up.

Here are some pictures of the completed models and WIP so you get an idea of where the army is at. Enjoy!

Farseer Turendas
Farseer Firanir

Guardians Squad Addan (Eldar for "white")

Guardian Squad Bennan (Eldar for Harvesting)
Names for Guardian squads are taken from The Fallen Princes.

You'll also notice that the Dire Avengers are missing from the pictures. Simply because they are primed white and still need work!

The 3 Wave Serpents transporting the 3 Troops choices

Jetbike squad Mear (Eldar for swift)
Still got to work on the other 2 units of jetbikes. Need to convert the riders.

Jetbike squad Geir (Eldar for fast)

All 16 Warp Spiders completed and ready to rock. Squads Iyalith (Eldar for jump) and Squad Quan (Eldar for the Warp)


Three War Walkers
The immediate focus will of course be the 5 Dire Avengers and the Wraithknight as they need to at least hit basecoat similar to the War Walkers. These 3 units will be the focus for the next 3 weeks.

Keep watching this space as I continue to paint them all up. Having a deadline is good as it really helps force and focus your mind as well as painting schedule. You guys should really try it! 


  1. Bloody hell. Don't use the 'mear' squad in Spain. That's spanish for 'pee'

    The army is looking great. +1 for giving each squad different helmet color.

    1. HHAHAHA! That's a warning I will remember! Thanks Ghazz! Show me your army!

    2. I will. But first, could you link me to a picture of your whole army?

    3. Hmmm I don't have one for the army list above but I have a photo from the last batrep. Would that do?

    4. The link is

    5. That's quite the army, indeed, specially considering they're Eldar.

      Is this all the models you have?

      This is my Orks army:

      It's kind of outdated. You should have to add 3 killa kans and 1 buggie.

      These are all my models:

      It's an old photo, but I don't think I have gotten much more models.

    6. That is an awesome display shelf! My goodness. I have never put my collection out like that before. I will snap a photo of my stuff before the next game, albeit it will be the army that I am playing, i.e. 1850 only.

      About a year ago I put up a post with majority of my collection before I revamped them. Take a look:

    7. Most impressive ^^

      And thank you
