Eldar Ghost Warriors - WIP

Hi y'all

As promised; here are some WIP pictures of my current project - Ghost Warriors!

I am basing my army list around a culmination of the Ghost Warrior Dataslate and the Iyanden supplement, using the Forge World Wraithseer as a HQ. I will touch more on the rules and army structure in a post later in the week.

Here is my start army list:

Wraithseer: 240

10 Wraithblades 320
10 Wraithguard 320

Wraithknight: suncannon and scattershield; scatter laser 300
Wraithlord: 2× flamer; ghostglaive; shuriken cannon 140
Wraithlord: scatter laser; starcannon 160
Wraithlord: 2× flamer; bright lance; Eldar missile launcher with plasma and starshot missiles 170

1,650 points

I went for a quick and easy scheme. I wanted the miniatures to look like stone and aged, beaten metal - like warriors who have been defending or standing sentinel for a long time. I went for a dirty red for the cloaks to show a once-regal quality that is also quite striking. Take a look at some of my WIP shots:

The whole gang:


Wraithlord - close combat running conversion:



Wraithlord - medium range:


Wraithlord - long range:


Wraithknight:


Wraithguard:


Wraithblades:


So what do you think so far?

    1. Thanks!

      Nope not tried them out yet.

      I was lucky enough to get my hands on a couple of the ghost warrior boxed deals so this is about 1/2 the army! Plan on doing 1 of each Wraith unit type (except Hemlock)

    2. Really easy to be fair. A nice change to trimming resin too lol. I found that plastic is very smooth though which made me worry. I am not into cartoony paint schemes etc lol.
