First off, contrary to my last post, the Corvis did not get painted in recognition for its glorious actions in combat, due to my running out of black primer. Instead is has a very sparse coating of said primer & nothing more...
This past Saturday, i was to have my first game of 6th ed. (in lieu of going out to Morristown on Sunday), however with mere hours to go, rogue.trader.voril texted me with claims of wife aggro. Thus the game didn't take place. We had intended to keep it simple, no psykers/fortifications/flyers etc., though I was going to take a small contingent of allies. The list I had built was using my Orks. Just seems appropriate to have my 1st game in the new addition to be with Da Long Wayz Dezert Groop itself. To accompany them I had selected a small contingent of renegade IG (I decided against adding in a Manticore to keep it 'friendly' however after he cancelled, such niceties will be off for the next time...lol).

They will accompany my Saim Hann Autarch and his little ally contingent. Rather than give the Exarch the 2nd Shuriken catapult I opted for the power weapon and shimmer shield. I figured that with just five of them, blade storming won't accomplish too much. However with my assault oriented Autarch, the defend skill would make them much more survivable in close combat (yes, yes, I do realize that I'm talking about a just 5 Eldar, so stop laughing). Aside from paint, now all they need is a falcon to ride around in.
