About this blog

The Faithful of Eloni are my version of an Human/Aelfish civilisation, living in Eloni (a continent in Ghyran) and mostly worshipping Alarielle. Some of the devoted to Sigmar Models should be priests or normal people, that go fanatic because of there loses to the age of chaos, some of them are worshipping Sigmar, but the there faith is something that helps them survive.

I would mostly play the army as a Free Peoples army (even I use mostly Wanderers Models)

The Mainproblem is, that GW has no real human models what would fit to Ghyran Civilisation.

Update July 15, 2018 Reinforcements have arrived

Okay, I did a little building again for my maidenguard Actually I build 2x10 Maiden Defenders (didn't glued the Shields yet) A Handmaiden on Steed And 2 Maiden Chariots (not glued yet, because I brush the deers normally after shading) Even when not using the fan made Battletome it gives me more variation because the Maiden Defenders (Bleakswords) are Battleline and I can build an Order army with combined with the reavers.

A naming problem

Hi Guys, at the moment, I'm a little slow at painting because of soccer WM (even as germany left in the group phase) Yesterday I realized something when looking for the name "Order of the Yellow Rose" Once there is a monk Order in D&D as it looks like: http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Monastery_of_the_Yellow_Rose and there was someone on Twitter saying that his son joined the Order of the Yellow rose. So the order is a real thing? Hm, I know that I used places of other games ("Eloni" was a map of Spellforce) but normally I didn't wanted to use a real existing organisation (because of not knowing what they have done). On the other hand, "Order of the Yellow rose" doesn't scream "Worshipper of Alarielle". After I didn't painted any banner yet (partly do to the point that a rose is not easy to paint) there is the question, what other name I could give the order? The closest thing to a Alarielle Worshipper would be something like "Order of Alarielle" or "Cult of Alarielle" but this doesn't sound right. Another thing, refering Ghyran would be something like "Order of Leaves" There is also the case that every Standard of the Order has the Heart with Thorns on it's top and my Maiden Guard uses the Heartsymbols, so perhaps something in this direction. Does anyone have suggestings to this?

An own fanmade Battletome for the Order of the verdant cycle?

So, I made a little building for a fanmade Battletome (it's my nonlayout style again because it makes changing stuff easier). I called it "Order of Flowers" so different Alarielle following orders could be made. My order of the yellow rose is only one of them. Order of Flowers version 0.9 As you know, the Order of the Yellow Rose was planned as a mix of Humans and Aelfs Worshipping Alarielle. (but for once, there is no way taking Humans as Allies for Aelfs and so on). At the moment I have made units for the Maiden Guard I'm working (partly changed Warscrolls of Wanderers, Swifthawk Agents and Darkling Covens) To make the Order more complete there are also the Order of Rangers and the Order of Paladins. These don't have there own Warscrolls at the moment, but I tried to switch the Keywords from other Units as part of the Allegiance. I'm not really sure yet, what the Allegiance Abilites should be, after a part of the army don't follow the sneaky Wanderers Style but I think this is something to work with.

A little more Building

Alright, a little more building. I got my order for 4x Sisters of the Thorn and 1x Sisters of the Watch and my plan building Sisters of the Watch styled Reavers worked. I didn't get them spears because profilewise it didn't make sense. In the profile they get them spears and the Champion has a sword (because this was the way it was with the Spire of Dawn models). But, the spear and the blade have literally the same profile (the blade has 1 attack more, but its because it's the champions weapon). There is no better range or worse To-Hit role like we often see with spears. The other 10 models (mostly the deers with the forehooves down make another 10 Wildriders Actually I started to paint one of them, because I switch him into the other unit. The point is, 7 deers with front hooves down in a single unit doesn't look that good.

Updates until June, 17, 2018, more WIP

So, to give a little update for the last week. My Ranger part of the army got another 10 Eternal Guard (so the unit contains 20 now) and 10 Wildwood Rangers). Actually don't have pictures of it because it's not really interesting showing mostly noncoverted minis. A little more interesting should be, that I made a High Priestess containing parts of Yvraine and parts of the Sisters of the Thorn. Actually I don't know that warscroll I should use (Spellweaver looks a little wasted here). Is there something better fitting for a priestess in Ghyran than a woman walking barefoot (except that she doesn't have legs where men become jealous of like it's the case with Alarielle). I undercoated her yesterday and started painting the skin, so this is the result: Still I don't have finished any more models but I will show the WIP pics. First my three heroes From left to right: Waywatcher, Nomad Prince, Spellweaver. And the first 10 Sisters of the Watch (of 30). Actually I have done a little painting on the 5 additional Wildriders, but I didn't make pictures of them. Next weekend will get interesting in case of Building: I actually orders 4 Boxes of Sisters of the Thorn/Wildriders and 1 Box of Sisters of the Watch. With these boxes I want to build another 10 Wild Riders and 2 units of 5 Reavers. Using the Deers standing on the hindlegs because if I saw correctly the Sisters of the Watch Cape should fit in this case so I could use the upper body of the Sisters of the Watch. I really must say, it's fun to work on a most/entirely female army that isn't over sexualized.

Updates until June, 10, 2018

So, to give a little update here. I both another 10 Sisters of the Watch (to fill the third Battleline) and a Nomad Prince (except I don't know if he really fits with Antler) into the Order of the verdant cycle). After Path to Glory only has the Nomad Prince as Herochoice for Wanderers right now (okay Sisters of the Watch are not even part of it, but would somebody say something against it if they were took instead of Shadow Warriors?), I made a Kitbash Nomad Prince for my Maidensguard. Those of you who follow my Twitter already know them, but here are the pictures of the build models. I undercoated anything, put the Texture Paint on any models base and started painting the Maiden Guards Nomad Prince, Spellweaver, the Waywatcher (where I actually changed the head to a SotW head) 10 Sisters of the Watch and the other 5 Wildriders. (I didn't made pictures of them, yet) For my planning. I will actually give the army another 10 Wildriders (actually have to look if I have enough heads left), but I also have to look, if I can give this part of the army some more varity. For once I have seen those nice Reavers, made by @Melcavuk After they are Order Battleline I can try to fill the Armys Battleline with Order Battleline instead (or use them as Allies). I think, it would be nice to have some more close combat units in Maiden Style. Something like Eternal guard would be nice, but after I used the Wildrider Spears for my Wildriders they would look more consistent if they would have these spears (the problem is, the downpart of the spear is used by both mounted units (if we don't count the shields) so this could get really expensive. Another easier way would be making a Sword + Shield unit, combining SotW with the Shadow Warrior bits, but after Wanderers don't have a Sword + Shield unit (only Darkling Covens having one) I would have to use Order because of missing Alliance Rules. I think, the strangest Idea would be, using the Swifthawk Agents Chariot, spanning 2 deers in front of it and putting 2 Sisters of the Watch on top.

Girls going wild

So, I painted my first 5 Wildrider models for the all female maidenguard today. I know, the actual warscroll doesn't have shields (while they are in the sprue from 8. Edition WHFB). I think the shields are quite fitting for them. Now I have to paint the other 5 models I have, that are containing the Champion (after I switched the head, so the champion could have a sword instead of a spear) and the banner bearer.  
 

Oh deer, a little Building a little painting.

To give a little update here. Thursday I painted the deers of the first 5 Wildriders Still haven't painted the Female Riders I showed last time. Today I build some new stuff for the army. I build another 5 Sisters of the Thorn (didn't make a picture). Build another 5 Wildriders I build my first 10 Eternal Guard, after having my Tribesmen. At the end I thought, maybe I should have some more heroes when the new Edition arrives, so I build something that could be a Waystrider

A little reconstruction

Okay, after all the time I did nothing about this project, I did some reconstructing. At first I planned, using mostly Freeguild Warscrolls for them, but there is quite a little to much Wanderers Style in them. For a little organisation, I structured the Army in "Order of the verdant cycle", "Maidens of the verdant cycle", "the Forelorn", "Tribesmen" and the "Allied guard of Mitrilfels"  First here is the List Orden of the Verdant Cycle Sister Christina (100) Loremaster 10 x Glade Guard (120) 10 x Glade Guard (120) 10 x Glade Guard (120) 20 x Bleakswords (200) 20 x Swordmasters (360)   Total: 1020   Maidens of the Verdant Cycle Waywatcher (100) Spellweaver (80) - Heartwood Staff 10 x Sisters of the Watch (220) 10 x Sisters of the Watch (220) 5 x Sisters of the Thorn (220) 5 x Wild Riders (140)   Total: 980   The Forelorn Excelsior Warpriest (80) Warrior Priest (80) - Sigmarite Warhammer & Shield Warrior Priest (80) - Sigmarite Greathammer Witch Hunter (60) - Pistol & Silver Greatsword War Altar Of Sigmar (250) Warrior Priest (80) - Sigmarite Warhammers 20 x Flagellants (160) 20 x Flagellants (160)   Total: 950   The Tribesmen Shaman (100) Battlemage - Specialisation: Jade Tribesmen (160) 20 x Freeguild Guard - Spears and Shields Tribesmen (160) 20 x Freeguild Guard - Spears and Shields Total: 420   The Allied guard of Mithrilfels Freeguild General (100) - Great Weapon 6 x Demigryph Knights (320) - Lance and Sword 5 x Freeguild Outriders (130) 5 x Freeguild Outriders (130) Total: 680
Total: 4050 Order of the Verdant Cycle is a little mess, because Sister Christina and the Paladins don't really fit as a Waystrider and Wildwood Rangers and I had some guys with Sword and Shield that don't fit as Eternalguard or better saying anything of Wanderers. So  this is an Order group with a Loremaster, Swordmasters and Bleakswords for the moment. And the Glade Guard is still missing Banners and Hornblowers because Archers didn't have them. The List which Units are painted, which are WIP etc will be found in the Headpost of the Blog. Another thing, quite new are my Maidens of the verdant cycle. Those of you, who know my Twitteraccount (@EMMachine27) will already know that they are because I made some posts about them already. It's a Wanderers Force, completly in the Stlye of Sisters of the Watch and Sisters of the Thorn. 20 Sisters of the Watch + Waywatcher Kitbash   Waywatcher Kitbash Closeup   Kitbash Spellweaver   Wildrider Conversion.

The Tribes joined in + plan for the first 1000 Points

All righty then. The Tribes joined in to protect eloni from the chaosforces. Hier are the first 20 painted Tribesmen that would be played as Freeguild Guard with Spears and Shields I didn't paint them in the standard like my Stormcasts, because it would take quite long and I think it would cause motivationproblems again. And there spiritual leader (there shaman or battlemage)   Also I made my plan what I should paint to get my first 1000 points. So this is my plan: Battlemage (100)
Sister Christina (100)
Freeguild General
- Great Weapon

Battleline
Rangers of the Verdant Cycle I (100)
10 x Freeguild Archers
Rangers of the Verdant Cycle II (100)
10 x Freeguild Archers
Warriors of the Verdant Cycle (Sword + Shield) (160)
20 x Freeguild Guard
Tribesmen (Spear + Shield) (160)
20 x Freeguild Guard
Warriors of the Verdant Cycle (Helebards) (80)
10 x Freeguild Guard
Paladins of the Verdant Cycle (150)
10 x Freeguild Greatswords
- Free Peoples Battleline

Total: 950/1000   The green marked Units are already painted and shown here. The yellow units I already have started to paint some of the models but didn't finished any yet. The red ones are primed at best. So this means I have to paint another 50 miniatures to get to that point. Let's see how long that tooks.

Characterdescriptions of the Faithful of Eloni

Here is my first characterdescription for my faithful army. Its the description for sister Christina, my Free Guild General of the Order of the verdant cycle. There is already a hint, that she met with my Stormcast Eternals (How the Stormcast Eternals gets there is still Work in Process). For everyone who is wondering, I called the town 'Rosenheim' in the german version (Mithrilrock is called 'Mithrilfels' there for example. You guys already know Mithrilrock from my characterdescription of "Vanguard Raptor Prime, Ramir"). After I wasn't satisfied with translations like 'rosehome' I didn't translate it in that story. Have fun. Free Guild General, Sister Christina
