As I mentioned in the last post, I forgot to take pictures of the heavy weapons teams I had also been working on a bit for the Scythiak. I have corrected that oversight; here they are:
The Heavy Bolter guys are based off of Ox from the Last Chancers. I'm planning on just having them alone on the 60mm base with some accessories, as 2W 2A bad mammajammas. Also planning to have them detachable so I can take one to use as a Sgt. Harker stand in if needed.
A while back I got partway through a Commissar Yarrick figure, painted to match my Merkans but haven't finished him yet. I also recently got another one that I plan to eventually traitorize.
I also picked up some Eldar figures the other day that have a long history.
Way back at the dawn of the millennium, when I was first getting back into 40K I got a huge Eldar deal. While I was building Space Marines and Chaos Marines, my friend Pat was interested in Eldar, so I sold him most of the lot, and he used it for a while before dropping out of the game. The mass of Eldar then eventually made its way to Nathan, then some of it made its way to John, and now these guys made their way back to me. Some is also ending up with Ed, to reinforce the Ed-dar. Ten years later some small part of that huge lot has found its way back to me.
The reason I got them is that I have some ideas of doing an Eldar Corsair force, combining Craftworld and Dark Eldar figures down the road. I'll often do this, picking up a little bit here and there over a long time while I'm building and painting another army. I'll be painting one, getting stuff for another, fiddling with lists for others to decide what to get for a third. Once I get done painting one, every army moves up a slot in the pipeline. It'll probably be quite a while before these guys see paint, so don't hold your breath for them.
