The Eldrad Distraction

I know it's out of order, but I painted Eldrad and he looks great (if I may say so.)

It was for a "build it, fight it" event at FLGS. I bought and built a box of Guardians to go with Eldrad, thinking the Starcannon would work well against the many Marines I was bound to face. I got seriously owned in every battle. The worst was the Marine player who teleported right into my face, rapid fired me with every Marine and killed every model I had but Eldrad before I even got to move. Ouch.

The other Marine player got smoked by the Starcannon, but in the end a captain in Terminator armor with a Thunder Hammer was too much for Eldrad. It only takes one invuln miss at S8 to turn the Farseer of Ulthwe into blood paste.
