I like that Falcon, Pisces. Very neat.

By the way, I don't blame you for not using Iyanden colours. I don't find them particularly appealing either.
That thing really put the pain in paint. Working with blue ink in the seams/cracks (or whatever). I'm glad it turned out the way it did. Took me quite some time to get around that whole thing, I'm working on a Wave Serpent now... same drill.

Hope there will be more people sharing their ideas, good work.

PS: nice sig, MuffinMan (FMA)

Nice models Pisces, I like your Falcon as well (maybe I just like Falcons though :funny the lines in the grooves are really clean.

Are you going to try to paint all those green... parts(?) like gemstones? Because it looks like they would look great if you did...

Now I really wanna paint my stuff :P

I'm going to try. First I'll make my army playable by using the basics, then I'll focus on details. I know it are just green dots now but I really don't have that much time (neither do you it seems). Glad to see everyone seems to like the Falcon. ;D

Ow, and the error above the bottom cockpit (line not painted) has already been fixed.

Well I just started Eladr in 40K, BFG and Epic. Though i have only got my BFG into the scheme it will be the same for each system. The scheme is a bit like the red scheme but in green, the jewels are red bleached bone will also be used. I'll see if i can paint an actual eldar 40K guy for a pic not just an Aurora cruiser.

Hi. New on this forum.

Iíve played Eldar for a number of years and Iím currently rebuilding and repainting my force (long story).
My original scheme was Citadel bleached bone and Humbrol violet.

My scheme is remaining basicly the same as it was before, but being updated to suit the new paints and to tie the aspects together more. The old paints arenít quite the same shades and itís difficult to get the Humbrol range now.
With this in mind, all my weapons are going to have red barrel tips. Armour will reflect the aspect but all blades will be the same colour across the army.
The craftworld scheme is bone white with purple helms. Any hair/tassles on helms will be red. All optics on helms will be blue, including aspects.
Tabards on aspect warriors will be purple or bone or purple and bone as required. This is to tie the army together.
The only aspect that Iím going to veer from the traditional scheme is the Warp Spiders. For these Iím going for bone coloured jump generators with dark purple suits and the spinners fitting the army weapon colours

I know that this may still be a little bit technicolour still, but I think it will work.

So far Iíve started painting the Banshees and Avengers and have several models in construction.
