Totalling it all up gets me 2300 points of Interstellar Eldar Fury.
Add in a Pirate Prince and a generous helping of re-rolls and I'm commanding a clean 2500 point fleet.
Oh, and an old Space Fleet Eldar Cruiser, which I could use as a really ancient Solaris Class Light Cruiser.
With the miniatures no longer in production, and Ebay prices being the madness that they are, this fleet is now officially declared finished.
Should I ever win the lottery, or BFG get back into production (without prices being jacked up insanely) I'd like to add the official models for the Aurora and Solaris light cruisers and a gaggle of Eldar transports, but currently that's just a pleasant dream...
I really had fun painting the last couple of Eldar ships, and while I'm glad to complete a project, it's also kinda sad to realise that I won't get to paint any more of these lovely little vessels. :(
With this fleet done, in theory I could host a complete game of BFG without the other player needing to bring anything, as I have all the rules, dice and rulers, a set of terrain and two full fleets. (Three, in a way, seeing that my Imperial fleet is twice as large as my Eldar one...)
Nevertheless I think it may be prudent to paint up my (small) Chaos or Ork fleet as well, as Eldar are a notoriously harsh fleet to play against, or with, when still getting used to the rules. Best not alienate new people right away.
I'll be spending the remaining daylight taking individual shots of capital ships and escort squadrons for my (long suffering) wish/plan to make custom individual datacards for each ship in my possession. I really need to settle on a design and layout for them and then wrap my head around a graphics program long enough to actually execute this idea.
Oh, just had an idea, would it be odd that I'm thinking of converting miniatures to represent the respective Admirals of my fleets?
See you next time!
