I could bore you with what's happened during my hiatus but ain't nobody got time for that, so I’ll just get straight into it.
I didn't want to go down the typical Eldar channels as Aspect Warrior colour schemes bore me to tears, so I developed some fluff in order to allow me to paint my army up without being restricted to goddamn blue Dire Avengers. In a nutshell, an Exodite world is attacked by an Imperial Fleet, a deserted Craftworld drifts into the system, the Exodites then use the Craftworld to repel the attackers but the humans launch a salvo of Anti-Plant missiles to render the planet uninhabitable, forcing the Exodites to become permanent residents of the Craftworld, blah blah blah.
If I feel brave enough I’ll post it up here one day.
So, the first thing for your eyeballs is the Avatar.
Painting it was a ball-ache, and I'm still not entirely happy with it, the look I was going for was a blackened iron effect, as if the Avatar had been repeatedly heated up and cooled over thousands of years. I mixed in some weathering powders to the paints to try and give it a pitted and warped effect. Did I pull it off? Nope. Totally unhappy with the blade as well but quite chuffed with the bloody hand though, at least that's something I suppose!
