Inspiration: Yderis Eldar vs. the Tyranids!

It's been a while since I've posted to the blog.  Don't fret, we're still slow-rolling our work on revising 2nd edition for a bit more playability.  I'll be hoping to put up some more datafaxes soon as well!  I appreciate the positive feedback I've been getting in messages and on some of the forums.  Thank you muchly!

Now, a treat - some pictures from a few 2nd ed. games yesterday.  Will have a load more when my partner sends me the rest of the pics!

The first game is set up!
 
A Shining Spear aims for the Hive Tyrant (failing miserably!)
 
 Having failed the first game, the Yderis Eldar set up to defend a trio of Farseers and Warlocks inside the main structure - busy trying to break through the null cloud of the Tyranids swarm --- hoping to get a message through to the Craftworld ships in the system.
 
Maugan Ra leads the defense in aid to the Craftworld.
 
Dire Avengers and Dark Reapers dig in for the waves of the Tyranid assault.
 
Fire Dragons prepare to repel the Tyranid horde.
 
Wayward Eldar Pirates return to aid in their moment of need.  Guardian grav batteries prepare for combat.
 
 Turn five of seven, the Tyranids break into the ritual, attacking the Warlocks and Farseer

As the Eldar defense crumbles, Dire Avengers run into the aid the Farseer as the Warlocks are consumed.

  1. Enjoyable battle report. The board looks really nice. Looking forward to more.

    Have you guys considered making(or have you seen anyone else who has)new datafaxes for newer models and vehicles? (ie post 2nd edition.)

    Keep up the good work,

    1. Yep, we're considering it. Things got slow recently with some other projects, but we're getting close to putting out some of our revision ideas. We've added several vehicles to our datafax lists - but it's definitely not fully inclusive of the entire model range!
