Empire Middenheim Demigryph Knight

My Empire army is Middenheim themed, but with black/purple/gold instead of the standard colors.  When the newest version of the army book came out I, like everyone else, saw how kick ass the Demigryphons were as a unit.  Even though I like the standard model I couldn't pass up doing a Middenheim giant wolf deal.  The wolf is from the Space Wolves Thunderwolf Cavalry kit.  The legs, torso, and spear are from the actual Demigryphon kit.  The shield, head, cape and shield arm are from the standard Empire Knight kit. I am fairly pleased with the end result.

Paint scheme wise this is my standard color combo for the rest of my Empire army.  The first pic is a much better representation of how the wolf looks.

Now if anyone wants to give me a 25 man Teutogen Guard unit that would be awesome.  Ebay prices for them are just insane.

Empire Reiksguard Reikscaptain

I had a ton of White Wolf Knights, but nothing to use as Reiksguard or vanilla knights.  So I decided to build a Reikguard unit.  I like how the colors of Reikland contrast the dark purple and black of the rest of my army. Never a fan of the plastic Empire Knights, but considering it is really the only option I have to live with them.

Eldar Dark Reaper Exarch

I found myself playing a lot of Dark Repaers the last half dozen games of 40k as part of an infantry heavy Footdar list.  I have 2 full squads painted, but this is an update the scheme.

Eldar Striking Scorpion Exarch

Finished the Exarch today.  I went a different direction with the armor with green highlighting.  I like it a lot better than the yellow style.

Eldar Eldrad Ulthran

I did some updating on ole Eldrad tonight.  I made him a bit brighter with some added wraithbone.  His initial paintjob, which is still a good portion of the model, was done initially back in '02 or so.

Eldar Howling Banshee Squad

I finally finished the entire squad tonight.  I even started their bases as well.  I just wish my Scorpions would come out like these ladies did.

Battletech Atlas

This is an Atlas I painted up in the colors of the 3rd Lyran Guards.  I have a whole company in these colors in various stages of completion.

Eldar Striking Scorpion

I'm not a huge fan of Scorpions, but I got a 6 man unit fairly cheap on ebay.  Not sure I like the way the armor looks.  The picture does not exactly do it justice to be honest.  Hopefully sometime tomorrow I can work up the will the finish the last 2 Banshees to finish that squad and get some pics up.

Eldar Warlock

I don't really run Warlocks, that's Justin's deal.  I do have a few laying around though.  Maybe this will motivate me to get some Wraithguard.

Eldar Howling Banshee

I just picked a 6 man squad of Banshees off Ebay the other day.  They came in 3 days.  So I figured I got a fast delivery, might as well fast paint them.  Well at least one of them.

I started playing Eldar sometime around '96 or so.  I used Banshees quite a bit in 2nd edition.  When 3rd came out and I started playing Dark Eldar I traded or sold all my Eldar.  These are the first Banshees I've owned since then.  I really this sculpt out of the 3 versions.  

Interestingly enough, my old Banshees weak part was their hair.  And these Banshees I think a strong part is their hair.  At least it's my favorite part I painted.

Necron Immortals

Finished these guys a few weeks back, but I never got around to taking pics of them.  I really like how the highlighting came out on the metal bodies.  So much so I am applying the same technique to the Warriors I am working on and plan of going back and adding it the the already completed Warriors.  Hopefully in a few days I can finish my Night Scythe and gets some pics of it up.

Necron Canoptek Wraith

So much work for a 35 point model.  These pics were taken in natural light.  So much easier to take pics when it isn't 4AM.

Necron Catacomb Command Barge

Easily the coolest looking HQ in 40K right now.  Eventually I plan on picking up two more of these kits and making them into Annihilation Barges.

Battletech Wraith, Pillager, and Awesome

Three more mechs from my Capellan regiment.  The Awesome is the newer style with 4 PPCs.  The Pillager has some Shock Force skulls added to the shoulders in recognition for its headhunting ability.  It is also the ride of the Regimental Commander.  This Wraith is one of 3 that makes up a deadly pack backed up by a Huron Warrior for long range support.
