I heard the Neural Node formation is kinda crap, but I think it'll be really fluffy fun to field, AND paint up :)
I'm still kinda deciding on the final color scheme for my Nids. I planning to try a dark orange with dark blue carapace. Shall see how that goes.

Also sadly, I had also lost the leg armor pieces for my Knight. Try as I might, I could not locate them.
I decided to paint my Knight up as The Crimson Reaper. I like his backstory even though it was just a short blurb, it had potential ;)
"The Crimson Reaper is a Freeblade Knight, who was first sighted during the Rithguard Crusade and has since then participated in battles on scores of worlds alongside the armies of the Imperium. Those who have fought at his side however, struggle to admire him - as he does not care for the lives of his allies on the battlefield and has readily trampled them to death, in his eagerness to clash with the Imperium's enemies." -From the Lexicanum website
(Picture taken from Google Images.)
And there was also a nice picture above to go with the fluff. But before I started painting, I had to remove the Black Templar iconographies and more importantly, fashion another set of lower leg greaves for the Knight...
Well that's enough hobby for today. I had kinda felt under the weather in the morning, but did have strength to still do some hobbying :)
Will be adding more highlights and washes and finally basing the model.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend. And here's wishing all a super week ahead!

Here are some early WIP pics of the Vyper:
And this is also the last 50 points of my 250 point Kill Team paint up.
Have a great weekend all!

I decided to give them a re-paint for their sacrificial efforts on the tabletop. They charged in gladly towards succulent biomass. I tried the warlock purple Nids color scheme previously and tried to make it work. It was ok, but I decided to do a blood and bone scheme instead as it was more visceral and organic looking.
The weekend nears its end as I post this. Here's wishing all a great week ahead!

Mr Fluffy is here again as I present some of backstory or fluff for my Eldar Kill Team. Below is a brief write up of their purpose, function and key personalities. Hope you enjoy.
Glithrandil has been on the council of Iyanden's seers for many centuries. Glithrandil travels the stars and coordinates the execution of covert operations whose purpose are known only to the council.
Glithrandil's efforts have borne much fruit in helping the Craftworld avoid much of the conflict and dangers which would have otherwise placed them at peril.
The Eyes of Glithrandil
The purpose of such teams also known as Glithrandil's Eyes was necessary due to the loss of a great number of the Craftworld's psykers during the Tyranid attack on Iyanden.
Unable to prognosticate the skeins of fate with their previous accuracy, Iyanden had to have a physical network in getting vital information to the Craftworld. As such, small teams comprising of Rangers and Striking Scorpions were chosen for their stealth and skills at remaining undetected, until the time came to strike.
The Shrine of the Emerald Sting
The Shrine of the Emerald Sting is identified by their bright green armor and yellow faceplates. They draw the shadows unto themselves when stalking their prey, only revealing their presence when it is time to strike. Usually the last thing the enemy sees is their emerald armor followed by a flash of chainblades and mandiblaster needles.
I'm mostly done with the Striking Scorpions for my Elvish Kill Team :) Above is the first of the Scorpion miniatures I did a week back.
That's all I gots for now. The Rangers of the Hidden Moon are near completion and I will be posting them up shortly.
The only thing left after will be the basing of the models.
Hope the week has been a great one for all. Powering on to the weekend ;)

Lithaina Aranshiel, The Red Scorpion
I have not finished the Rangers yet. But their camo cloaks are coming along nicely. I'm planning to paint all 20 Rangers. The ones of the left are mostly done while the Rangers on the right are in the early stages. The middle Ranger was the one I painted some time back (yup I finally found him, he hid really well lol!). He was my first and the rest are all based on his paint scheme.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend. Have a super week ahead :)
