Default Autarch of Iyanden

Well, at last I've finished the model. It's a pity I couldn't enter him for the HQ contest... maybe next time . Also I seem to have aquired a taste for yellow, so expect more Iyanden eldars to come soon.









WIP can be seen here:

P.S: I know it's still not based, I still don't know how I'm going to do it.

Yellow is not as difficult as it may seem at first. In this case I used Citadel white primer, a base of Vallejo's model color matt yellow, one ink wash with La Pajarita's teja (a spanish brand of latex-based acrylics, I think snakebite leather also could work), a retouch with matt yellow and a single highlight with matt yellow + white 50:50.

Very nice yellow, it's clean and fresh. Also the freehand on the tabard is top.
