With 6th edition Warhammer 40k freshly released, I thought I would bite the bullet, go the place I've never been and assemble an army. Its not that I don't like the game, it is just that I have never been inclined to play. The change from 5th to 6th is the impetus I need to make that leap.
My son had had a brief foray into the hobby and we had assembled a few Eldar figures back 5 or so years ago; so I thought that that could be my starting point. When I looked, most of his remaining figures were quite badly damaged, but I managed to find five unpainted Eldar dire avengers. I had a brief look at his old codex and opted to try Biel-tan. I didn't realize that dire Avengers tend to be blue do I went for the green colour. Oh well, I'm sure its a big universe and there must be some green Dire Avengers out there!
