I don’t want to play favorites, but this set models blew me away! What an incredibly impressive job Andreas Efternamn. (Includes May bits from my shop) #warhammer40k#spacemarine weapons and shoulder Insignias
Irillyth, Shade of Twilight
This guy is the lost Phoenix Lord of the Shadow Specters. I think I painted Irillyth in 2012. He was my first jump into fades on small amour and the first time using large chunks of yellow and teal, which would become staples in my later color schemes. I think he is in need of some major touch-ups to bring about all the great detail on his amour, but I am still very proud of this model at the very least for being a turning point in my painting. You can find him, his aspect warriors, and their rules in the Imperial Armour the doom of Mymeara. The back story for Irillyth and Mymeara is a fun quick read. I recommend it if you’re into 40k fluff. When forge world launched that book it came out with a whole new slew of Eldar models and rules, creating a new Phoenix lord which is nuts. For all you space marine fans that’s like adding a Pimarch! This gave me hope that they would update the old looking Phoenix lords and maybe create some that are missing for other aspect warriors. I’m looking at you warp spiders 🤨. It’s been a good 5 years or so since, but I still have my fingers crossed. I honestly have never fielded him, except as a stand in exarch for his aspect, which I do really enjoy fielding. Let me know if you have ever used him or if you have a favorite Phoenix lord.
