Back with a Eldar update. Been unable to pick up any games of 8th so far due to time constants. So not wanting to lose momentum with this side of the blog, I am sharing a project I did last year. This project has now grown from being a 7th edition formation into a 8th edition detachment following the release of new rules.
The plan back then was to build the Dire Avenger Shrine. In 7th ed that meant 3 squads of Dire Avengers lead by a single Exarch in Waveserpents. But for 8th I am following that guideline but adding more exarch's and an autarch. In game terms I'm attempting to build and paint 3 squads of Troop Choice Dire Avengers, each led by an Exarch. My ultimate goal is on having 3 full squads of 10, so they can fit in their respective Waveserpents. I also wish each squad to have an Exarch, each armed differently. Lucky for me I already own 15 Avengers (5 metal, 10 Plastic), so I'm only 15 models short (lol) plus the three Waveserpents.
Here is a quick run down of the Patrol Detachment layout:
- Autarch- Power Sword, Avenger Shuriken Catapult, Shuriken Pistol, Maniblasters, Forceshield (Power Level 5) 84 Points
- 10 Dire Avengers- Exarch Dire Sword, Shuriken Pistol (Power Level 6) 167 points. Waveserpent- Twin Linked Shuriken Cannons, Nose Shuriken, Spirit Stones (Power Level 9) 153 points.
- 10 Dire Avengers- Exarch Power Glaive, Shuriken Pistol (Power Level 6) 167 points. Waveserpent- Twin Linked Shuriken Cannons, Nose Shuriken, Spirit Stones (Power Level 9) 153 points
- 10 Dire Avengers- Exarch Power Glaive, Shimmer Shield (Power Level 6) 187 points. Waveserpent- Twin Linked Shuriken Cannons, Nose Shuriken, Spirit Stones (Power Level 9) 153 points
A pretty straight forward system to purge paint off your models. For the opening stage you need:
So what to do you think? Do you paint your Shrines to match an existing one or have you made your shrine? Drop me a comment below and let me know.
