So, its been a week since I released the podcast. And the site seems to be handling traffic more often now, this means more regular content! This time I wanted to share a WIP project that I have been working on over the last couple of days. I had a ravager sitting in a box, unbuilt and ready to go, but i wanted to do something different. Now, I wanted to convert a centerpiece for my Dark Eldar force and what better than a raider for my HQ to ride on in style?
The inspiration for this design was the Dark Eldar Tantalus from forgeworld.
The biggest obstacle for me was starting to cut up the model! I wanted to be able to do it and not mess it up horribly. Anyhow, here is the a progression of pictures, the first cuts and design:
Then the general shape:
And the overall concept:
Anyhow, thanks for reading. I shall continue to work on this as it gets done. Need to do a lot of greenstuff work on it as well as eventually paint it. But one thing is for sure, my Archon will be riding in style.

Dear Skaredalites: Episode 9 has been pushed back a few days. Baby has not been feeling too well so I am a bit behind on the recording.
As for the hobby table, I have been gearing up for the 1500pt tournament this weekend in Barrie. It has been interesting to go back down to 1500pts (from the regular 1850). This has made me explore other units in the Dark Eldar book. I decided to take out the Razorwing (for the first time in a year and a half!) and instead, build and paint 5 scourges. These scourges are armed with 2 haywire blasters, a decent AI and AT gun that complements the other weapons in the squad quite nicely. I am looking forward to testing them out on the field (I hope to have another game on wed). I have also been very active on my twitter account @skari2 so give me a follow if you are a tweeter for more constant updates.
I thought that this would be a good time to show you all a WIP of the 5 scourge. I magnetized the two special weapons and got some extra feather wings. enjoy!
Stay tuned for more. Skari- Out
Again? I hear you ask. Well, yes and no. Once again the Kabal ventures against the space marines, this time the Dark Eldar are taken by surprise! In one of the Battle Missions that sees the guile of an Archon tested, and the will of the Emperor shook.

Did quite a lot of painting today. I am really getting geared up to participate in the tournament on the 21st, so everything needs to be painted (not a requirement, but you get points for it) but every point at a tournament counts! I wanted to show off the uncubi unit WIP and their venom:
They are at the basing stage and need a wash and then highlights.
There, thats what I have been doing!.
