I had so much fun at Warhammer Worlds Heat 3 playing my janky High Elf Dragon list that I’ve decided to continue working on The (turquoise) Twilight Host! I’m looking for excuses to use nice plastic characters (be they Aelf or otherwise), in this article I cover making a High (Aelf) Elf Mage conversion using the Warhammer 40k Eldar Farseer model.
I picked up the beautiful Eldar Farseer model from the Warhammer 40,000 range with a view to what is basically a head/arm swap. The head swap was simple, the arms were far more complex than I had intended upon though. The fantastic Empire Battle Wizard box came in very useful, as well as some Eternal Guard/Wyldwood Ranger Vambraces.
Over the weekend, I watched the Warhammer TV coverage of the Age of Sigmar Grand tournament: Heat 3. This is the first major event we have been able to see the Kharadron Overlords in action and I was interested to see where people went with the army design and it seems one sky port has proven popular – Barak-Zilfin.
The most prolific Kharadron Overlords list at the event were the affectionately named “clown car” lists. Continue Reading “Kharadron Overlords: Barak-Zilfin Tactics”
Both Sky Wardens and Endrinriggers are the most versatile units you can take in a Kharadron Overlords army. With a fly movement of 12” these are some of the most manoeuvrable Kharadron Overlords units. They have access to decent range weaponry, such as the deadly Drill Cannons and Aethermatic volley guns. They also have some solid combat potential in the form of Aethermatic Saw blades and Sky Pikes. Thanks to the Hitchers special rule these units take up no space on the Sky Vessels. This makes them very strong for the “clown car” list. (see my article on this here!)
