Found your thread! That’s a spectacular array of nostalgia you've got going on there! The bright coloured aspect Warriors look amazing, I never delved in to eldar back in the day, but they really hit the nostalgia button of late! The port and starboard colours are a great touch too, though after 2 years of working with ships I could never remember which side is which! Looking forward to seeing the array of heavy metal in your final army shot

Thank you youwashock,

So I obtained the other Eldar waterslide transfer sheet I had been looking for and started with my unit of Wraith Guard.

Now the original transfer sheets I felt that the eternity symbol of the Wraith Lord and Wraith Guard were too small. With the new transfer sheet they all seemed too large (they were meant for the newer models which are larger and for the Hemlock Wraithfighter).

In the end I used the larger transfers and turned them 90 degrees.



What do people think, is that heresy? I just figured that the infinity symbol is more of a human image (well it is a real mathematical symbol).

They look great, and I seem to recall that's how I applied them to my Iyanden as well!

They look just fine. Infinity stretches off in all directions, no reason to restrict yourself. Fits nicely on the helms.

Thanks guys...I think I had a nightmare about possibly redoing them by sanding off the varnish layers above and below and starting again (which would have meant repainting all the heads).

Now another squad that benefited from the transfer sheet purchased from InquisitorMack.


Finally some Fire Dragon transfers in black!

Also took the opportunity to add the icon for Dire Avengers to Asurmen.



youwashock, I have not forgotten your request and will get a shot of all four Wave Serpents together. Then I think it will be time for an army shot.

All four.



Slight variation between the three eras of painting (or really two as one was a conversion from an old Falcon). Debating whether I will do transfers on the three that do not have any...if I do it will mean having to mask of canopies.

Next up will be an army shot.

Never been much of a space elves fan but I do admit, they are some darn pretty models!

Still find it crazy to think that when I left the hobby around 2008/2009, the "New" Eldar are now 10 years old.

Thank you youwashock, Theophony, Briancj], slave.entity, squall018 and BadOrk.

Now an army shot.



Spolier tags added for larger shots.
Spoiler:


Looking down for depth.
Spoiler:


All metal except for the bikes and Serpents. I did leave out the extra Guardian, Dire Avenger and weapon swaps for the Serpents, War Walkers, Support weapons, Wraith Lord, etc. But the rest is all in there. Ove 100 space elves from Rogue Trader or 2nd Edition.

The long painting war continues...but for my Eldar I think it might (for now) be finished.

Impressive work there Captain!

Truly a colorful bunch.

These older models bring some memories.
Even though I started collecting Eldar after the new models had come out, I remember seeing these in the old White Dwarf magazines I borrowed from library as I was a kid. One of my friends also had some of these guys. Don't quite remember which, but I remember grooling after them and hoping to get enough allowance to buy a box or two.

Incredibly beautiful Eldar Warhost there. Truly worthy of a 90’s White Dwarf, with classic models and colours superbly executed. Sad that they’re finished though, surely there’s a few more hiding in your collection somewhere ?!?

Wow, this army could easily have been in White Dwarf in the 90s! It is beautiful. So impressive to see such a large army all painted consistently well all together. Congratulations on a job well done.
