40k 8th Edition Projects: Drukhari as Larry, Bleached Blonde Bones

All hail our 40k 8th edition overlords, its finally arrived! With a few test games under my belt I can confidently say 40k is back on the menu boys, and to celebrate I have dug deep into my hobby larder and started work on a long time dream of a bright yet dirty Drukhari (Dark Eldar) army.

Drukhari Dark Eldar 8th Edition

I picked up some super good army deals from local lads selling old projects to fund them buying the new starter and now have about at least 3k points worth of Drukhari to paint............. so lets get to it!

Drukhari Dark Eldar 8th Edition

I recently painted up and sold off a 30k Deathguard army and really took to the dirty worn bleached bone look with heaps of weathering and really wanted to try it on a Xenos army to combat all the primaris marines that will be popping up now with the starter set. The big change from my Heresy Death Guard scheme to Drukhari will be using vibrant purples and slick blacks as the contrasts colors to make them stand out on the table

 I managed to get trounced in a test game with a mate of mine on the weekend but at least the army is starting to look good haha. For sure I am getitng more wracks and dark lances painted first for sure.

annnnnd to finish off here is a sneak peak of the next project cooking in the background..... love me some cheap starter set splits :)

Horus Heresy 30k Event Report "Face of Oblivion": Myrmidons and the Mad Magos march to war. Warning! Post may contain army pics galore!

Trip report from the EyeofHorusPodcast event "Face of Oblivion"

Dark Mechanicus Magos Prime Malagra with Occularis and Thallax

Once again Brisbane has shown its strong 30k form with another awesome event. Tim and Michael from the Eye of Horus Podcast hosted a 1 day event at the Magic Vault here in sunny Brizvegas and as always it was a hit.

I was lucky enough to grab an invite and as this was a Centurion/Zone Mortalis event I quickly threw together some infantry based lists for my Traitor Dark Mechanicus forces. I am heavily leaning towards running a full Myrmidon cult army in the near future and this was the perfect event to try some more Myrmidon units out, they did not disappoint! I took the Mad Malagra Magos Prime again as my HQ and he personally slew two Alpha Legion Praetors in single combat and wrecked anything else that got close enough including a captured Ork Warboss that a GM dropped into one of my games! The combo of a paragon blade on a Magos combined with rad grenades and a rad furnace ensures instant death AP2 attacks all over the shop and a chainfist for back up with vehicles.
