Eldar in 6th.

Recently I've played a game with them to see how they're doing and to try out the harlie star, which proved to be nasty. Played against Necrons where str6 spam means nothing to their vehicles. it wasn't an optimized list that I was facing and had a mix of a lot of units. It still managed to hurt me, and ended up with a draw/lose (unsettled game as time was running out).

The Workspace

It's usually messier than this..

Recently I've watched a video from Awesome Paint Job of Les showcasing his desk set up. Got me thinking of my own setup and thought I'd post it up. Now I'm not a brilliant painter, I put gaming ahead of it but I do like to have a fully painted army on the board. 

I only use the basic equipment necessary to get the job done hence the basic setup I've got. The actual board where I do all my work on, I got built based on the old GW painting station with a few changes here and there. I've got glue and green stuff on the top left, files and clippers on the top right, A goblet of dirty water and paints all over the place. This isn't the whole thing but the main station where all the magic happens.

I like to keep things as compact as they can get, that's why I use this tray setup where when I need the space on the desk, I can just lift it on to A shelf above.

Updated 1500 DE 6th ed list.

Needs some freehand
With the dawn of 6th, the dark kin suffered some massive blows by the nerf bat. These have taken the form of disembarking rules, reduced cover saves, reduced feel-no-pain, useless allies. We've gotten some nice cookies with the jink rules and night fighting but Dark eldar still suffer from one massive weakness, useless troops.

Wyches will die if looked at funny in 6th as overwatch and blown up vehicles will decimate squads before they even reach the fight. I've grown tired of relying on 1 blaster warrior squads in venoms.

I became happy with my changes in eilte, fast attack and heavy but spent days tinkering with my troop selection to get something i liked and contribute some how with the rest of my forces and eventually settled down with this:

Baron Sathonyx conversion - complete

Using parts from the hellion kit and a Harlequin troupe master. I always wanted to field Harlequins in my army, so here's an excuse to do so. The pose isn't quite as dramatic or dynamic as I wanted it to be but I do like the 'Peek-a-Boo' expression on his face.
