Those are some gorgeous Eldar, the darker cleaner sceme really works for them

Also, where did you manage to snag that version of the Scorpion?

Hi Kragh, what model of airbrush and compressor do you use? I'm thinking of getting one and could use some advice. thanks in advance!


I bought this one:
Image

AS 186 Complete Airbrush Kit + Compressor With Tank
To pistols. One with 2mm and one with 4mm.

A cheap china model. I have just upgraded it with a new Harder and S pistol. Not really used it yet.
I can highly recommend getting an airbrush. Great resuslts is quite easy and its great fun!

We had a small tournament last weekend. I attended with my Tyranids:

Giant Fanatic 2016 was my first 'real' tournament, (3000 points)
With only a few games at 3000 points I didnt expect much...

I brought something like this:

1 Swarm: 2 Warriors, 2 Hormagaunts, 4 Termagaunts + 1 Warrior
1 Swarm: 2 Warriors, 2 Hormagaunts, 4 Termagaunts + 1 Warrior
1 Swarm: 1 Hive Tyrant, 2 Hormagaunts, 4 Termagaunts + 1 Warrior + 2 Carnifex
1 Swarm: 2 Hormagaunts, 4 Termagaunts + 1 Warrior + Dominatrix + symbiote + 2 Trygons + Zoantrope (BTS)
1 Harridan
1 Harridan
1 Harridan
1 Harridan
3 Exocrines
4 Dactolys
5 Biovore
3 Lictor
Image

The goal during the weekend was to beat Thorbjørn, an old warhammer fantasy battle boddy, who had beaten me last time during an intro tournament with 1500 points

First match was against..... Thorbøjrn :D

He brought his Imperial Guards

Thorbjørn, happy and ready for battle as always
Image

Deployment
Image

Nids closing in on the right
Image

Nids fighting some rocket shooting valkyries - damn they hit hard!
Image

But not hard enough :-) Thorbjørn has to come up with a new plan...
Image

The nids get the IG conered.
Image

In a last attemp. Thorbjørn trows his units forward on the right flank. But they get butchered and shot, so have to retreat
Image

The game ends 3-0 I think it was. Victory and revenge was mine :D

Next match was against Steffen, playing 1000 sons with a huge flying castle!

Image

Flying silver towers i bravely advancing in the middle
Image

The Dominatrix jumps forward at first given opportunity :D
Image

A unit sons is stranded on the left, as their transports has been destroyed. Nids are protecting strategic points.
Image

The Palace is surrounded

Trying to kill the castle

The Palace escapes

The nids gets some strategic points in the end. Giving them a 2-0 victory.

Next match would be against Martins Eldars. The finale, as Martin also had won his 2 first games...

Martin had a very small elite eldar army with a huge ass Titan!gle meget hurtige og hårdtskydende tanks.

Deployment
Image

A small swarm taking cover in the fortifications
Image

More nids taking cover as the Eldar prepares to push them back
Image

A small swarm trying to kill the last fearles model, taking the objective
Image

A harridan is hiding in the ruins, waiting for an opportunity to engage a flying super tank
Image

The Nids prepares for a huge attack, taking a big risk, as they need to win the initiative...
Image

Unfortunately, they dont win it and are pushed back.
Image

The big Titan tries to pound the swarming nids back, but they are to many
Image

The game is about to end, but the eldars struggle to claim the victory with the few remaining units left
Image

The game ends after round 4. 0-1. The Eldar claims the victory on victory points.

I should have played the game alot different. But that is what you get when you are a noob, next time... :-)

Over all a fantastic tournament with 3 great games!

I end in 2nd place and takes the best painted award ;D

Very satisfied. And still in love with Epic :D
