Older Eldar still foot it!!!

Time to try out the newly acquired Inducted Imperial Guard troops, even if I haven't yet had time to finish their bases, nor to paint the unpainted heavy weapons and others. The boys faced off against some older but still beautifully painted Eldar; Adrian's wraith army from the Craftworld codex. Enjoy these photos, mostly of Adrian's beautiful Eldar.

The Avatar - looks like the Inquisitor might have his work cut out!!!

Some of the Guard eagerly advancing - maybe some of these lads aren't too bright, me thinks, there's a very nasty daemon lurking out there, with an awful lot of heavy fire support from a heap of Starcannon!!!

The Inquisitorial team look intent on business, as you'd expect.

There's even a Leman Rus there to offer at least some moral support, although the boys were really hoping for a lot more than that.

Wraith Lord and Wraith Guard.. shudder shudder!!

Wraith Guard with their Warlock -- my Guard Squads and Callidus Assassin managed to account for both warlocks, but the Wraith Guard didn't seem at all phased in the end.

Bloody hell, 4 star cannon!!

The final 'face-off' between the Inquisitor Lord and the Avatar had to happen.. but the game was already lost, the Eldar held both objectives, and there were an awful lot of Guard bodies lying around.


  1. Nice Report!

    Those Eldar look great! (and the guard aren't too shabby either!)

  2. Adrian is a wonderful painter, and I picked up the Guard mostly painted... I didn't photograph the heavy weapons because they are not finished, and they all need basing.. that's on the list of things to do.
    The only figures in this report that I painted are the Inquisitor and retinue.

    Back to work on some HotT VSF artillery at the moment.

    KInd regards
