Default Elathiad Eldar gallery...trashbin...whatever :P

Hi everyone. I'm going to post some of my pictures of my Eldar. They are the Elathiad - the Forsaken. You'll understand why when you see my poor quality of painting. :P I'll try to add to this over the next couple days. For now, however, HQ's.

Thanks for looking,
Em

Autarch Rhyannil, the Shadow Raven

Those are not sorry looking models by any stretch of the imagination, but the paint does look a little thin on the blades; as if you didn't use enough coats. Perhaps that's a deliberate effect, but I think you might be better off feathering up to white or something like that?

I quite like the wings though. Yeah, they're pretty special. ^-^

Anyway, cool conversion....but the paint job is alot to be desired.

Thanks. I haven't quite master dry-brushing non-metallics unfortunately . It either ends up being too stark (like the sword) or not stark enough (like the hood).

Thanks...I think. :-\ Anyway, the base is a jetbike base because Eldar Farseers cannot take wings...so the figure mus count as a jetbike.

Well, I like them...
And you do have proficiency in blending, looking at the gems and runecasters wings.

Please, sir, may I have some more?

Heya, after my crushing defeat last night...I'm almost ashamed to post the rest of my army. :P I need to add 3 Guardians and 4 Swooping Hawks and I'll be back up to 2,000 points.

Guardian squads - no close ups because they're troops and fairly simply painted.




Rangers - not bad, but I had a hard time working out a color scheme for them.


Swooping Hawks Ravens - the jewel of my army, but not much to look at:




Falcon - the first Eldar model I painted...so it's not the best.


Shining Spears - I couldn't stand the blue & white scheme so I went with something that would match my army better.


That's all folks. I'll try to get my Orks done and post them up eventually. My son has a 2,000 point Imperial Fist 1st company army that I may post at some point. I need to re-do all of their should pads though.
Thanks for looking,
EM

You did excellent on the Farseer. ;D And I like the Guardians color scheme. The shining spears look very good two.
