Everything is so damn nice Cav. Damn.

I'm really jealous of your ability to paint so consistently over an entire army...and then to have the patience to go back and repaint parts of that army so it all looks as good as it can. As you know, I have Hobby Butterfly Syndrome, so the thought of owning such a large, visually impressive army is just a pipe dream for me.

Beautiful work as always.

Damn.

@Dread- Thanks for the kind words buddy I appreciate it.

@Myen-Tal- Thanks Myen-Tal they and Dire Avengers are my fave Aspects too. I'm really glad the Spears came together because they are a project I started about 5 years ago gathering bits. So thanks bud glad you dig them!

@Looshkin- lol... thanks man yeah its been a long process and not easy, so I understand the struggle. Half of what makes it possible is that I dont own anything but Eldar stuff for the most part so there isn't a lot of room for distractions. If I dont buy non-Eldar stuff I wont paint it lol!!! But yeah I had to go back in and make my core units look good. I just couldn't stand it anymore. Anyways thanks bud and still looking forward to your triumphant return to painting Aeldari!

Thanks buddy. I'll hopefully be quitting one of my jobs soon so I can paint my own models again.... fingers crossed and it'll be all Eldar all the time (and a little World Eaters!)

Wow guys. In the past 10 years I have not gone this long without painting a model for myself. 6 months into the year I've only painted a Fire Prism, a Hornet and 3 Harlequins... and in the past 3 months nothing at all! But the good news is that time is over because I am DONE commission painting. Got another job and continuing with the podcast and now its all me, all the time when it comes to 40k.






So to celebrate I painted my first new model, in my new house and it was a Harlequin! I cannot wait to get a battalion of these guys out on the battlefield in 9th edition out in the wild! With all those CP's its going to be a thing of glory. So I have another Troupe Master, one extra player, another Troupe, and 2x Star Weavers to paint before I have a bare-bones battalion.

I cant tell you how excited I am to have a Harlequin army, and to feel confident in my ability to actually play them well! They are one of the most fun armies you can possibly play and to have a legit army of them alongside my overall Aeldari collection is truly a highlight experience for me... but I gotta get there first!

Anyway guys, got some fun stuff coming up. I've got a Wraithseer, a new Avatar of Khaine (I got a new one after I sent my old one off to a client) and a Wake the Dead set with my name on it. Also have plans for other odds and ends as well... but we'll see what I feel like doing first.

Anyway guys hope you are well and looking forward to chatting soon

Good to see you've been able to claw back some personal time, and seem like its just in time for 9th ed, as it looks like the 25th is the official release for the limited boxset. Hopefully the restriction for you guys will be lifted soon, looking forward to hearing all about 9th ed on splintermind.

Those harlies look amazing :)

Good to see you're active my friend. Hope this virus crap hasn't upset your life to much. I love your harlis! They are so, well, perfect! I am so jealous of your painting ability but proud to have watched it grow over the last several years. As always it is a pleasure to see your armies. Can't wait to see the star weavers. Ttyl 8)

Amazing work once again, Cav, I'm at a loss for words! Love the 'Quins!

Hold on to your potatoes everyone; Cav's back and he's here to make us all look and feel bad with his awesomeness!

Welcome back to your own painting Cav. It really is inspirational to see you back at it...and you started with a bang. Lush Harlequins. The reds are so rich, as are the golds...and then the black and white diamonds are flawless. Absolutely flawless.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to cry into a pile of unpainted models.
