Eldar - (subset of) The army going onto the auction block

With GenCon rapidly approaching, and the unexpected cost of a new pair of glasses cropping up last week, it's time to put the Eldar up for sale. I'd been waffling about what exactly was going up on the block as I did want to keep a small allied contingent for my guard. I finally settled on what that would be (Bonesinger, Wraithblades, Corsairs and the Crimson Hunter) but the rest is getting the chop. I went through and snapped a new set of pics of what all will be up for sale over the next couple days, and figured I'd share 'em here:

HQ
Farseer


Spiritseer


Warlock Council



ELITES
Fire Dragons


Striking Scorpions


TROOPS
Dire Avengers


Guardian Defenders


FAST ATTACK
Warp Spiders


HEAVY SUPPORT
Falcon

Wraithlord

Wraithknight


DEDICATED TRANSPORTS
Wave Serpent 1

Wave Serpent 2


APOCALYPSE
Tempest

All in all I really had a blast painting this army, all the various color schemes helped to stave off Army Painter's Fatigue and it was surprisingly easy to stay on task and keep cranking them out. Expect to see a lot more Hobby ADHD over the next few months as I ricochet crazily around the half dozen other projects that lurk within the Closet of Doom!

Awww! It will be sad to see them go. I did like the army and boy did you paint them fast. Still, needs must and all that. Great work on them though. Have you posted a pic of the complete army all together? If not, I would love to see them

Another for the chop! Will be good to see the filthy elves-es leave the building - pointy earned effeminate freaks!

Sad though, cos you made 'em look rather spiffy indeed mate. :)

@17yearoldhobbyist: Aye. They were always intended to go on the block, but I'm sure I'll feel a twinge of sellers remorse eventually! I'll try to snap a pic of all of 'em all laid out tonight!

@Dai: Indeed, can't have the xenos filth around much longer without potentially compromising the purity and honor of the Imperial Guard! :)

Thanks guys!

I don't think I would have been able to part with those bad boys. Fantastic job. Will they be going up on eBay? I'm tempted to check them out.

@Evan S: Thanks mate! Aye, they'll be going up on eBay tonight. I'm planning on putting them up as individual auctions (or small groups in certain cases).

Cheers!

WWWHHHHAAATTT????? Breaking my heart, man. You just got them all painted and away they go, orphaned already? Sad, so sad.

Though I must admit, I'm tempted to go the same way myself.

@J.D. Brink: Yeah, the Eldar were always intended for the auction block. After sitting in the Closet of Doom for the better part of a decade it was high time to finish 'em off and ship 'em out. Heh. The guard is my 'keeper' army, pretty much anything else I paint doesn't seem to stick around long. :)

Cheers!

Just so you know, spending gobs on glasses is a thing of the past these days:
