The Not-So-Super-Secret Eldar Team Tournament Army...

...for BoLSCon 2010.

This is literally the best army I can create right now.  I hope you dig it.  EDIT: Yes, it's a Footdar.  That's what me and Fritz wanted!  I don't mean an optimized list, I mean a converted and painted army.

The army is Elle-drag, the Farseer...
Fire Dragons
Storm Guardians, Warlock with Enhance (2 Units, male and female)
Dark Reapers (2 Units)

The basic idea, which I'll expound on tomorrow, is a Craftworld that's turned to Slaanesh.  The women are in charge: you'll notice the men are in drab robes with collars.

I'm beat - more tomorrow.

Great looking stuff!

Would have also made a great way to convert up some Dark Eldar as well. Good stuff though.

Wow. Awesome color combos, crisp lines, and I'm really diggin' the black on the bases... ;)

CounterFett said...

Awesome. I knew the (not so) super secret army was FootDar, but this is a whole new level.

The conversions work is simply superb!

Dethtron said...

robster craws and freaky eyes that look like they're from "the bloodening"

I approve

Jennifer said...

I 100% approve this army. And not just because the women are in charge. (Although, you do win brownie points for that.) I can't help but wonder your wife's opinion on this army.

SAJ said...

Nice, very nice. Good idea, good conversions, good painting, good everything. And you got it done in time. I'd say this is 'Above Average'.

P.S. If you're not careful, this is going to make everyone forget the Dyson.

Master Manipulator (every store needs one) said...

Whoaaa there SAJ. This is a great looking army, but it will take a lot of crab people to clean up the spill that is The Dyson Pattern Storm Buster.

Brent said...

Who wants to make anyone forget? I like running jokes I do. I'm putting the Dyson Patter Storm Buster on the display board!

Jenn: She loves it. In high school I went through a crazy Gor period, where I ordered the series and read it straight through. Naturally I'd talk about chaining her to the end of the bed or something (look it up), but she claimed she was from the planet Jennifer where the chicks were in charge.

Girl power and all that.

Ironic, no?

Big Whit said...

Well this actually looks good so I'll forgive you for canceling our game last week to paint. Unfortunately I can never forgive you for making me turn to the dark side(Lewis and his blog).

Magilla Gurilla said...

This army is fantastic looking.I really like the Slaanesh Conversions. However, what I really like is the Exarch conversion for the Dark Reapers...
...that is a really big gun!

Brent said...

Thanks Mags - I really appreciate it!

The_King_Elessar said...

A budding new Doc Thunder? :p

Nah, these are great, truly.

AND, they are killing the FootDar hankering - I simply cannot match that in time.

You win, I win...the only loser here is Not Brent!

Brent said...

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings... thanks for the compliments TKE, guys - I really appreciate it.

I was sweatin' it after the Storm Buster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven!


fester said...


Does this mean what I think it means?

No footdar pairs?

Brent said...

Nope, no Footdar. :(

Fritz contacted me earlier today but I didn't want to break the news - I wasn't sure it was mine to tell.

Something serious and unavoidable has come up, and Jawa and Fritz can't make BoLSCon.

I wish Fritz and his family all the best.

My new Team Tournament partner is...

Love the color of that armor, how have you achieved it?

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
