47 Weeks of Grey: Week 2, Can superglue remove fingerprints?

Hey everyone,

BeeCee here again with my weekly update.


This update is going to be a little bit different than last week's update. My hobby challenge got thrown for a loop this week in a good way! I was working on my Tyrannofex but then I got a message from a friend looking for a game this weekend. I have been extremely devoted to my Nids for the past two years, almost playing them exclusively. It is time for a little change...





In case you fine folks haven't figured it out, I am a bit of a 40k hoarder. In addition to my 10k points of Tyranids, I also have an 1850 Dark Eldar list (everything is NiB, I got a deal on Bartertown.), about 4000 points of Blood Angels and a crapton of mixed Eldar from second edition to current sculpts.



The Dark Eldar have been on my mind ever since they got a new codex and I have been itching to try them out. With that in mind, I said "Screw it!" and decided to assemble 1500 points of them to get in a game with my friend. I know that is going to make painting them a bit tougher but getting them on the table is something I have really been looking forward to but Tyranid tourney prep has really gotten in the way.

With that said, since I don't really have any pictures of painting progress, because I don't think anyone is excited to see a half painted Tyrannofex, I decided to post the 1500 point list I'm playing this weekend.
