Sidetracking

 Hey all..  It's been a rough couple of weeks so I haven't really been able to get to the painting table much. Illness and moving rooms around in the house and painting rooms has tired me out so I've been chilling when i can and worked on a few more pieces for my complex/Space Hulk layout. I just wrapped up the prison hold and I think it came out looking good. I only have a few more rooms to finish designing and then I'll cut the entire layout and get some test games in!

Used a Termie to show some sizing 8)
I haven't been completely slacking on the Raven Guard. The infantry is all together and the first level of blends are done. I"ll start putting in the details and then get to blending!

So many Marines..

 This week I've been trying to get my list figured out and then build up the infantry I need. So right now on the table is 5 Mor Deythan, 5 man Seeker Squad, 20 Tac and 10 Vets. It's a ton of marines to work through but they need to get done. I've never painting a complete army in a few months time. My Eldar have been ever expanding for numerous years. Alot of my other armies have been half done and then I move onto something else. It's a pretty large task..
I need to add arms, heads and backpacks to 10 of the Tacs but they'll all be built at that point. I may have to make a few more guys to fill some spots but these should be the rest of what I will have to have. Taking me up to

10 - Dark Fury
10 - Mor Deythan (5 w/ Sniper, 5 w/ Combi's)
10 - Vets
5 - Seeker Tac w/ Meltas
20 - Tacs
1 - Apoth

I'm still tweaking the lists here and there as I have a bunch of events to play. The Opening Salvo, The Escalation and the Team event with Greg.

White hot plasma ..

 Last night I started building up some of the infantry. I worked on the second Mor Deythan squad, they are going to run Plasma heavy. This MD squad will have one round of some heavy fire, the four MD have Combi Plasma and the Shade has a full Plasma Gun. The MD have a special rule that allows them once per game to get TL and Rending. So on that turn it will be popping their one use Combi's to unleash some serious death.
 This squad of MD I used the Vet backpacks to add a little extra panache.
 I was looking through the lists and I'll be going with one squad of Tactical Support squads with all Melta. I'm not going to have a lot of armor popping ranged guns so these guys will be my hope for knocking out heavy armor. It's all or nothing and gives me the feels of Fire Dragons 8) ..  I'll be painting these guys up gun free so I can get the details done on their chest. The MD Plas squad can also have a chance to pop some vehicles but I'm probably looking to go Termie hunting with them.
 I have 10 other dudes started but still haven't figured out what they will be. haha
A pic of the Apoth I've been working on. I need to do a little more work on him then it will be weathering time and work on the power sword.
