I am tired now, as its been 4 weeks since I have started seriously hitting the preparation of my Dark Eldar force for the Valhalla event. Valhalla starts on April 29th, which is now just over a week til departure, and lasts until May 4th.

So here is what I have been working on like a machine for the last 4 weeks or so, and to be honest, I feel like there is always a lot more that can be done. My old Dark Eldar contain a ton more models, from old grotesques (now wracks) to old reaver jetbikes and even more raiders. However, I am calling the Dark Eldar side of things as done for now.

Once again I will spend a little bit of time to get a few better pics over the next week, when I have a little more sleep on me. Over all I think I have completed around 90 warriors/trueborn, 6 archons, 3 haemonculi, 3 wracks, 2 farseers, 6 harlequins, 11 incubi, 4 ravagers, 6 raiders, 2 venoms, and a bunch of pain tokens.

While my dark eldar will take up most of what I am bringing, there are some Eldar and Grey Knights that are making the trip as well.

Also on a positive note, my Battlefoam case is supposed to arrive on Monday via UPS. That will be a good day.

  1. Sounds like you guys have a much better service from Battle Foam in the states :P Wish their UK operation would fall into line!

    2. Not really.

      Battlefoam has HORRIBLE delivery times. I ordered 6 trays for my eldar and lets just say, it must have taken them a week to pop each one out.

    4. Def,
      I placed my order 6 weeks before I needed to board a plane. The order was told to me that it would take 3-4 weeks (assumed that meant 4 as they explained that orders were taking a little longer because of Adepticon and other events).

      They were in regular communication with me during the 4 weeks. On the day before my 4 weeks was up, I called them to let them know that I had a deadline for Valhalla, and that I wanted to make sure I get the case in plenty of time. I explained I was not panicked yet, after all I am a patient person. (no laughing those of you that know me)

      I was told that they would wrap it up, and make sure I had my case. 3 days later it shipped.

      The case is now in the UPS system, and of earlier this morning had cleared Sparks Nevada heading my way.

  2. Never buy from Battlefoam. KR is a million times better in service and even more so when it comes to quality!

    1. False.

      I prefer the BF stuff over the softer blue foam KR uses. Never had an issue with service.

    2. I needed a TSA safe customizable case. Battlefoams black label looked to be the best product.

      Customer service so far I would give full ratings to. They have gone out of their way to help me, and answer questions.

      Of course I will do a full review after I receive the case on Monday.

    3. I own a cardboard KR case with troop/rhino load out. I use it for most of my small troops and rhinos regularly. It came in a mystery box I got from Spikey bits. Works good, just gotta be safe withe cardboard.

      I also own a BF blah blah blah Go bag that holds about 9" of foam and has more pockets than I know what to do with. It's reinforced on the sides as well, and has backpack straps. It's my goto bag for traveling and gaming.

      Honestly, I just like the foam better from BF, and they seem to have cooler cuts on trays. I'm not against KR at all, just thought saying BF was not an option was wrong.

      BF does take forever to ship. If you lack patience at all, look for a dealer. I have gotten stuff quicker through my FLGS, and sometimes he has the trays I need or want in stock.

      Last note... KR foam is way easier to cut and alter.

  3. Dont let Tau get first turn against you...
    I played a 2k match and managed to seize initiative - my opponent started 5 raiders and 2 ravagers, but not after turn 1 he didnt.
    Its not a good match up for you guys

  5. Can you post some pics of the battlefoam setup you have when it arrives please? I haven't really looked into transportation cases (as everyone plays at our house anyway so they never go anywhere- except GW Nottingham once or twice) but would be nice to store them like that anyway! thanks

  7. What are those curved tubes on the vehicles? The army looks great!

    1. those are probably the metal hooks along the side platforms.

      They are a type of bait hook that have a very cool curvature to them, and work very well on the raiders.

  8. This DE army is astonishing! And those custom old-school Raiders look very cool. Congratulations, Natfka!

  9. Very nice. Looks like one nice cohesive force. I didn't think it was possible to make the old models look nice but with some newer bits and some love apparently it can be done. Well done sir.
