I like those Dark Reapers, but I am not sure the missile launcher conversion works. It is reeeeaaally big! I think it might be better to have a regular reaper launcher and paint the white sections in a different colour. Not a big enough issue no to be worth it though, I suspect.

For some reason, I really like the feet on them!

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thank you youwashock and Fifty.

Fifty, if I had another old metal reaper launcher I might do that...but the model came from a trade so I have no spare.

Another unit refurbished.

Howling Banshees...made from lead as the power swords are almost soft. These were from the early Eldar blister packs that came with five mono-pose models.





And with the pewter Exarch.

Awww, yeah. I like the combo of the red with the blue on the swords. Those original blisters were great. You got a squad for under 10 bucks.

I love these old models, painted in the old styles. The banshees, jetbikes, Asurmen all look great. The scorpions are so nostalgic. Very cool project.

I love those Banshees. Nice work making the armour plates stand out from the underarmour. I especially love the swords.

More old Eldar getting some final attention, this time getting the waterslide transfers of their aspect. When these models came out I do not think there was a transfer sheet for Eldar...but I could be wrong.

It's lovely seeing all these old Aspect sculpts - good job Captain! I particularly like the scheme on those banshees and that rich red you've got on the tabards.

Thank you Bellerophon,

Two more squads received transfers.

First is a standard Scorpions and Exarch with a Biting Blade.


Second has the Exarch I converted to have a Scorpion's Claw.


One more unit of Swooping Hawks to go. I was going to do my Fire Dragons as well, however the transfer sheet only has their aspect symbol in Yellow or White and my helmets are Yellow, so they will not show up.

Such a nice green on the Scorpions. Too bad about the Dragons. Black should have been an option.

One more squad with fancy new transfers.



I do not think I will do the Guardians as their helmets are even smaller and when I did it for the Jet bikes it was a real challenge.

Last model to paint, a Forge World Wave Serpent...with resin jewels and bridge (none of these weathervanes). When this model was in it's heyday it was way too powerful and wildly out of step with it's intended role...I mean it was like a main battle tank that flew and carried troops. I painted several up over the years, but they only started seeing the field in 7th and now 8th Edition. This is the last of them and has been sitting waiting for painting for a very long time.



Including two turrets for alternate weapons. The troop compartment is a blend of the original resin FW top and a plastic bottom from the current kit as this one was missing the part (among other things) and was a steal on eBay because it was missing so many parts. I also had to replace the shield jewels as the model was also missing those and it their place the previous owner had glued on some plastic gem stones.

The long painting and converting war continues...

Yeah, this was a glorious tank. I remember building several using the plastic spoon turret hack and plastic pen barrel holofield generator...and some plasticard. Because it was that or the FW turret.

10 troops and a Twin-Linked Brightlance.

Nice. Of the three Serpents I own, one is Armourcast, one is legit, and one is a DIY with the spoon turret from days when you did that or didn't have a Wave Serpent.

Briancj,

Thanks for the comment. You just had to wait out FW as once GW released the kit in plastic suddenly there were loads of the FW ones on eBay for less than a new plastic one.

youwashock,

That is quite the collection.

So I started with the scatter camouflage pattern, but found that my edging highlight was too bright, so here is the Wave Serpent in mid-correction (with the overly bright blue at the rear).


The wraith bone underside.

I sort of like the look of it with the edge-lighting brighter towards the back. Could make for a cool effect.

Thanks youwashock, but I wanted it to match my previous three completed ones...hence the darker highlight.

Nevelon,

That was a neat idea, but the change is complete.

All WIP.

youwashock, I will do that.

More progress.


Still lots to do (like the shield jewels), but it is starting to look like a Wave Serpent that could grace the table top.

Do you have a system for what colour gem goes where, or just do what takes your fancy? I ask, as I notice it matches port/starboard colours at the front at the moment.

Anyway, it is very nice.

Army shot soon?

Fifty,

Yes, I did the same for my Jetbikes, they have their port and starboard running lights.

Army shot once this one is finished and I complete my waterslide transfer upgrades.
