Default How to paint Dire Avengers!

hey

i've just started my eldar, and i have some dire avengers which i want to paint in their aspect temple scheme. i looked on the games workshop site and found their guide, but its not turning out good at all. so i was wondering if anyone had any tips or methods, or just pictures of their dire avengers.

thanks

Hmm... I think in your case, you need inspiration. I would just recommend searching Google, or going down to a Local GW and ask to see any of the staffers painted Eldar armies.

Then might I suggest highly diluting your paint 2:1 to 1:1 so that the paint is almost colored water and just apply lightly on one side or another. This paint should be lighter than the rest of the plate.

Not sure how good it is, but try it!
