Eldar: my first 40k unit

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! 
 Hope you enjoy.


  1. Nice paint-job man, looking cool!

  2. Nice looking unit, Eldar one of my favourites so good choice.

  3. Don't worry about colours. It would be boring if all the Dire Avengers were blue :P

    Great colour scheme :D

    Thanks for sharing.
