Dark Eldar: Wyches

From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.

It’s been a long time since I played 40k proper. But I still have the models. And most of them haven’t been featured on the blog.

Dark Eldar Wyches

At the time, the wyches were the assaulted-oriented troops for the dark eldar.

The yellow bases match colored sails I made for the transports, so you could easily see which squad was in which transport.

Blackstone Fortress: Firebrand

Moving on from the Dreaded Ambull, let’s get started with Escalation. This set really unlocks a lot of the other expansion content. It seems like the later boxed expansions assume you have it. It also is required for most of the contents of the Annual.

The Firebrand is the bossman for the other cultists that come in the set. He’s got a cool psychic flamer. It was an excuse for me to play with using GW Contrast paints to blend. It’s easy to get a decent effect, though you can’t really get the inverse highlighting that many suggest for flames.
