Cult of the Frigid Razor

The Morrighan was ancient beyond belief. She had seen empires rise and crumble. She had witnessed the fall of the Eldar race, the flight into the Webways, the founding of Comorragh, the brutal power-struggles that ensued, and eventually the rise of the upstart Vect. She had bid her time in the shadow of Lelith, waiting for her hour of might. Her cult, The Frigid Razor, was strong, and grew stronger with each season of gladiatorial combat culling the weakest from the flock. The Morrighan’s aeons of planning were finally about to give fruit. And yet she couldn’t shake the nagging feeling, that something was missing from the puzzle… She would have to consult the Crones.

Alright! Progress report time. I’ve settled on a paint scheme, that I’m satisfied with, both in terms of overall look, and speed of painting. The main colours are hawk turquoise and red gore, with some ice blue and fortress gray added to the mix. I’ve assembled the succubus, three reavers, and ten wyches, and painted the reavers and one of the hecatrixes (hecatrixi?). I was at the store painting with a friend and co-worker, and he was kind enough to snap a few photos of my miniatures. Tell me what you think.

A New Darkness Arises

Shrill screams pierced the eternal night. Frigid winds blew, forming icicles on crooked iron spires. The scent of blood lay heavy in the air. The wyches were getting restless, and the death-screams of wretched slaves were testament to this. The Morríghan savored the moment, licking her blood-red lips. Soon her covens would be strong enough to take their rightful place among the cruel Commorragh elite. Soon, very soon…

I started thinking about a new army a short while back, and after a rather arduous process of elimination came to the conclusion that there really is only one choice for me… the Dark Eldar. I plan on starting out with a small army list, get those painted, play a few games, and try to learn the inns and outs of the Dark Eldar army. I also plan on staying away from internet forums full of know-it-all’s, and instead try and discover what makes the Dark Eldar tick on my own, through the time-tested method of trial and error.

This much I know so far: There are going to be a lot of Wyches. There won’t be too many Raiders. I will only use models I actually like. The colour scheme will be cold and grim.
