Calentar Eldalon Bonesinger FarSeer Illing Sunduiri
poor Illing. The mindbending of the Warp has left this
Bonesinger in a state of almost constant madness. Her fellow
Eldar do not so much see her with respect as with fear. They
give her a wide berth, knowing that a false start could result in a
Spell misfired by worn nerves and an awareness that is almost
constantly in the Fog of Warp. Whether some of her madness was
passed along from the previous Singers' souls encapsulated in the
Spirit Stones and Armor of her rank, or independently eroded from her
long travails...none can truly know.
has lived for the discovery of her homeworld, and the deliverance of
her ken to that haven. To find that their sacred soil was being
trampled by a race too young to even be in her vast store of memories
was an insult beyond endurance!
these upstarts seem able to defeat her frayed forces is a shame she
cannot bare, and each defeat leaves her closer to the brink, hovering
on that fine lined edge by the slenderest frayed string of sanity.
actually asked me for permission to paint this figure, the aquiring
of which was a major Coup. This was a Special Release that was
only available with the purchase of a major force. We'd already
purchased much of what would have been required to buy, prior
to this opportunity, and had neither the desire to duplicate
the figures I already owned, nor the means to afford same.
Jennifer begged our local
comic shop owner (who knows and values us as friends, as
well really good customers) into saving aside one of these special
figures for my birthday, last year. To say that I was thrilled
would be a massive understatement.
neck collar was reconstructed, as the original had a flaw in it....I
actually like the unique look Jenny created for it better than the
one it was "intended" to have. Painting the Rune
Armor and the tiny runes on the bottom hem took intricate detailing
far beyond my growing, but still quite humble, skills.
would love to enter this in some sort of contest, or otherwise get
its picture into White Dwarf, somehow...but haven't yet figured out
how to accomplish this. Suggestions?
a truly FANTASTIC job by Jennifer....who sometimes thinks it's
better than what she's been able to do with her Tau, and wishes it
were her figure. One of these days we may switch armies in
play, just for the fun of trying out each other's teams - but so far
I've been vastly possessive, and don't see that changing anytime real
soon. Until I get the nuances of my own forces firmly under my
belt, I'm reticent to try taking on a completely alien team.
the Army Card:
formatting of the cards was Jennifer's genius shining through, as it
so often does. To have each of my figures displayed as though
they were seen through, or just stepping out of the Webway Gate(s),
with glimpses of the many alien worlds they've searched in vain
before their beloved Calentar was
......................It just.....SO ROCKS!!!
biggest problem for me was keeping all the different rules for each
figure clear, and to help phrase them in ways that could be easily
understood. I thumbed back and forth between the Eldar Codex
and the Warhammer 40K Rulebook too many times to remember.
Often I misunderstood, miscopied, or completely missed pieces of
patience was worthy of canonization during the many long nights we
checked, and rechecked my rambling attempts at coherency.
is partly what's taken these so long to get here.
notice that Jennifer's Tau being woebegone has inspired me to a
mutual bent in my characterizations because we're both very fond of
misfits, and empathize with their plight.
the many of you who've patiently waited, and expressed interest in
my army - I thank you.
