The roll continues - Harlequins & Apocalypse
So I completed Asurmen and (the previously shown) Maugan Ra. I took a bit more time on Asurmen than I did on Mauggy (30 minutes), and am pretty happy with the result. I'm not really thrilled about all the 'bulk' space between his loincloth and cape. I'm not sure what the official term for this is, but it's fairly annoying. It's always a challenging in how to deal with it, but in this case I just painted it black.
This will also be my first game with Harlequins (assuming I actually finish painting them) and again I'm still a little unsure of how to use them, or maybe just uncomfortable with my lack of skill with them. I originally was going to put Jain Zar with them and have a Furious Charge party but it just makes more sense that she should be with her sister Banshees. And there was no room in the Harley's party falcon. Jain wasn't too thrilled about that. (I don't know if I'll ever be able to repair that friendship.)
None of my Eldar that I've shown in my blog are based, and I'm surprised I haven't gotten flak over it. There are two reasons for this (the lack of basing, not flak) 1. because I base all my figures at one time. 2. Because I hadn't quite figured out how I want them based. I have work in progress, a water themed board, and had origianlly planned that my force excelled at that sort of assault. I've made sure that every unit has a transport, except the rangers and wraithlords (obviously) but recent aquisitions my have changed that. I'll have to resort all my stuff now. I digress though, and now feel that because they are from Iybraesil and frequently are having to combat chaos in search for the crone worlds, they will be traversing planets and landscapes that is tainted. Well sometimes that stuff's just nasty and really, who want's to be walking on that?
Seriously, I just bought these shoes!
