Whilst talking to skabradisdead of Land O Misfit Toys fame, I may have said something silly (again!)
For many and various reasons, I am able to get a ticket to the Arcanacon Warhammer 40000 tournament pre-release. This is quite an honour and an advantage; big events like Melbourne In Flames etc. are selling out stupidly fast and having a back door entry means a guaranteed place.
Arcanacon is widely touted as one of the premiere Warhammer 40000 events in the southern hemisphere and rates as one of my favourite events on the Melbourne tournament scene.
Which lead me to thinking, what army to take to Arcanacon. I have about three months to assemble, paint and play test whatever army I choose; so it’s time to get a wriggle on for the world’s slowest painter.
I’d love to take Sisters of Battle, but don’t feel that their current codex would make them much fun. Nurgle Marines, similarly. The option that I have open to me is to continue work on my Dark Eldar army. And this is where the “silly thing” comes in.
If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll know that I inherited a “count as” Dark Eldar army from a mate and have slowly started to work on building the rest of the army.

At the moment, there are ten warriors painted, ten built and based, one Archon, two Haemonculus models (one of which is Urien Rakarth), three kit bashed Grotesques, six Reaver jetbikes and ten Wracks. There are also about four Raiders in various states of construction. The burning question becomes, can I make a 1200 point warhammer 40000 army list and paint it all and play test it in time for Arcanacon?
