Haemonculi Finished!

I managed to get in a bunch of work last week and I finished off my new finecast Haemonculus and Urien. I didn't get a chance to really post anything till this weekend as I have been busy with baby prep all week with the wife. This article is going to be a two part. First I am going to post the army list that I have been working towards in regards to what I want my "conventional" 1850pts list to be then I will get to the good of the new figs :)

Dark Eldar Final "Conventional" 1850pts:

Succubus - Agonizer
Haemonculi - Venom Blade, Liquifier, Casket of Flensing

Blood Brids (9) - Hydra Gauntlets x 3, Syren w/ Agonizer, Raider w/ Night Shields (Succubus goes here)

Warriors (5) - Blaster, Venom w/ Extra Splinter Cannon
Warriors (5) - Blaster, Venom w/ Extra Splinter Cannon
Warriors (10) - Blaster, Dark Lance
Warriors (10) - Shredder, Splinter Cannon, Sybarite w/ Venom Blade, Raider w/ Night Shields
Wyches (9) - Shardnet, Hekatrix w/ Agonizer, Raider w/ Night Shields (Haemonculus goes here)

Fast Attack
Reavers (6) - Heat Lances x 2
Scourges (5) - Haywire Blasters x 2

Heavy Support
Ravager - Flicker Fields
Ravager - Flicker Fields
Razorwing Fighter - 4 x Monoscythe Missiles, Flicker Fields


Basically, all Raiders/Ravagers/Razorwings all are armed with Dark Lances. I feel this list gives me a lot of versatility in that it has decent long range anti troop, anti tank and some great options for counter charges in CC. I also like that it has a decent variation in models to help break up the look of the force.

Now for the Haemonculi!

Looking nice! How was the quality of your cast?

Really nice job. Especially since those look like very complex models

@Stahly: The actual cast itself was VERY poor. Flash everywhere, detail missing (like his fingers lol) and there was a huge mold line down the center. The metal Urien was better in every way.

@greedo: Both models were very complex. Actually some of the most complicated models I have done to date...super fun though. Loved painting both :)
