Although the ”core” of my Dark Eldar army now is complete, I have always planned (and wanted) to add various units, giving me flexibility during gaming, and aiding me in the quest to find a ”standard army list" that suits me.
After my recent encounter with ”Citadel Finecast”, I feel lucky to have bought most of my Dark Eldar model last year during a trip to Dublin, hence many of my models are in metal (witch I obviously favour to the new resin models).
Made from metal, they get ”a heavy feel” in my palm, witch I think suit my Incubus.....
...... all 10 of them:
Next up was one of the most beautiful models in the 40K universe (my opinion anyway), ”The Mistress of the Cult of Strife" – ore simply ”The undisputed champion of the gladiator arenas” – Lelith Hesperax!
One of the named Characters that interested me from day one was the Lady with ”The Crystal Heart”. With 7 attacks on the charge, power weapon, 4+ Invulnerable save and army redeployment rules, I just ”had to have her”.... But what model to use? Jørn helped me find alternative models on the net, and ”we” ended up with a model from the ”Avatars of War” range.
Lady Malys was once upon a time Asdrubael Vect´s consort. Her ”story” and name demanded a ”graceful appearance”. For me that meant no spikes! I actually found that the model (with a repositioned head) portrayed exactly what I imagined. Behold, it is predicted that she could be the one that holds the keys to the demise of Vect - and the fate of Commorragh itself – Arcon of the Poisoned Tongue - Lady Malys:
It was quite an undertaking. Most conversions I have seen are build from the Kabalite Warrior plastic kit. However, having acquired a ”Metal Arcon”, I found it only proper to use that model to create my own Asdrubael Vect – Supreme Overlord of Commorragh:
Inspired by the cover of the Dark Eldar Codex, I re positioned his right arm, using the “soul trap” as an “Obsidian Orb”. Using various plastic parts I created the “Sceptre of the Dark City” – a power weapon that always wounds on 3+! Spikes – I had to give him spikes – and a grim array of poles and spikes with skulls! Still – not wanting to go "over the top", I wanted to be able to use him in tabletop gaming.
