Well the title says it all, i've added the new stuff in brackets!!


1 Autarch (new),
86 Guardians (19 new),
8 Guardian jetbikes,
6 Howling Banshee's(1 new),
2 Dire Avenger's( I also have 11 dire avenger heads + bits so will turn some of my many guardians into Dire's),
3 Support Weapon Platforms with crew,
2 Striking Scorpions,
1 Swooping Hawk Exarch,
7 Rangers (6 new) ,
1 fire Dragon,
1 warp spider (new),
1 Falcon Grav Tank,
1 Night Spinner Grav Tank,
1 Fire Prism (new),
3Vyper Jetbike's(2 new),
3War Walker's(2 new),

I really should get round to working out a rough points value, though this will change with new 6th being release so might hold off for now on that.

 So I started painting my 10 man guardian squad + weapon platform as detailed in my last post, they are all sitting waiting on detail work being done. I was in dire need of a HQ and I didnyt want to be limited to just my autarch soooooo I am going to cratch build a female farseer (I dont think GW actually does a female farseer mini), heres the bits i have for her so far.
I'll go from left to right;
Top row: a helm that i've glued what I think was some kind of Halberd point onto the back of, i'll put some greenstuff on this and add some spirit stones plus some minor farseer type glyph on the helm, then theres some random legs I got with one of my ebay special buys, no idea what it was originally, but the robs fit in well with the farseer theme, then we have some jetbiker legs (can you tell what my plan is yet?). 
Middle row: female guardian torso, i've removed the vents from the standard guardian torso and will make this look a bit more fancy again with more farseer type stuff, then there are the helm decorations from a busted avatar that I picked up, again part of a bundle along with this random curved thing, I think its off a reaper weapon. Magnets!! :)
Bottom row: a dire avenger exarch pistol, the blade from the avatar's sword, dire avenger exarch sword and a load of greenstuff.

So my plan is to magnetise the farseer so that she can be a stand alone mini or be mounted on a jetbike. This will be my first time using greenstuff, magnets and actually my first scratch built eldar project so I will try to keep a step by step 'how I did it' going until she's done. This picture shows the legs / torso, held together with blu - tac atm, next to one of the guardians i'm currently working on purely for a size comparison, the farseer model will work out slightly smaller but this is fitting for the female frame i think. :D
