Hi everyone!

I'm from Shah Alam. Absolutely brand new to the hobby, essentially started learning basics of assembly and painting last weekend.

My first project is going to be Dark Eldar and am working on getting a fully painted squad in a couple of months. Right now working on each weekly segment of the Legio throwdown so it's the Kabalite Warriors for now.

Yea +1 to the DE population.. Yes interesting choice for your first army... The army looks good and Is the best glass cannon army in 40k prob the only glass cannon army in 40k lolz..

It will take some time to master as its very unforgiving for newbs and two tactical mistakes can cause you the game. With that said Everyone fears the DE... It can dish a lot of punishment but cant take any in return Very Happy

Welcome indeed. Agree with Jeff >> am so looking forward to seeing a fully painted DE army on the tables Smile.
The Legio army throwdown is definitely the best opportunity and drive to get your first army all painted up.
All the best!!!

Welcome.

Despite what these veterans think, I'm betting you chose DE in a painting perspective. Razz Friendly gaming advice, I guess. In the midst of starting an army myself so I can totally feel you. Peace!

Thanks for the welcome guys! I'll post some pics once i get the first troop done.

I chose DE solely because they caught my eye and looked purty Smile Total noob mistake, am probably going to regret that pretty soon.

Hi hi! Welcome to the forums. Can't wait to see some pictures of your painted warriors.

I'm also painting some Dark Eldar now, I really love the warrior models so much that I have 45 of them in my list.

Welcome aboard. Can't say you don't know what you got yourself into Laughing totally looking forward to see your stuff as you paint them. And the reason you got into DE was the very same reason I got into the hobby too. It just looks so purty.
