wierd dilemna


I have a kind of a wierd dilemna with an eldar army that was donated to the raffle at the 09' tournament. The army is detailed in the video, and I gotta wonder, is it worth it!

Any chance you can snag an Eldar army it's worth it. Just ask Fritz :)

Jetbikes without guardians aren´t that bad to have, just get some more warlocks and 2 farseers and go for maxcheese :-) 2 large mounted seer councils are a pain to mod and will take some time, but it will be worth it...

That is a lot of jetbikes with no guardians.
While it is worth it to see you speed paint, I am not sure how many people will want that many jetbikes with no riders.

Well, since you have a ridiculous abundance of storm guardians, you could try converting some of them to fit onto the bikes.

Either the chop and putty way, or maybe look into salt dipping. I haven't tried it yet myself, but I'm told it can turn out well for stuff where bends will be hidden.

I would agree with the idea to just put the storm guardians onto the jetbikes. Sure it might be a pain in the ass, but i also think that it opens up a lot of alleyways for conversion ideas as well. Give it a whirl, just do a test model or two to see how difficult it is, and how good it looks.

I am definitely leaning toward the mazed out farseer build. The problem is not BEING able to do the conversions, but being able to do them and get the army built in about 3 weeks time. I have made incredible progress so far since I got the army on Saturday and the paint I wanted on Monday. It will be unusual because I am painting the body of the jetbikes a metallic enamel and everything else in flat acrylic. No matter what, it would be worth the price of a 1 dollar raffle ticket. :)

matt just leave them im shure the person(Me) who wins it well convert them

CJ said...

DUDE that's such a treasure chest! 29 jetbikes and a butt load of storm guardians that's like a 1000$ briefcase. The guy or girl winning that is going to be one happy camper. Are you painting the bikes for your self or for the raffle I bet unpainted bikes would be a lot more attractive because the winner can do what he or she wants with it.

Cheers CJ

Matt, I looked through the box and i found, if my count is right, 16 riders. Also, im no eldar player but, theres 6 metal rider upper bodies so im sure you get a sergeant option.

Black Matt said...
