I have completed a major milestone. Both Dire Avenger units are done (revamped in one case). The squad that was initially completed is now revamped in whole with the flashier bases and I'm hoping my focus on revamping troop units pays off long term.
Here are the two units together.
This marks the dormancy of Exarch Vanesh, but the re-awakening of Exarch Rowendey and the Shrine of the Ebon Spirit. Hopefully he'll be a fine complement to Exarch Tuithador of the Unblemished Fury Shrine.
