Thank you squall018.

Well I guess I was premature in declaring my army finished, as this is the first of the last four Phoenix Lords I intend to paint.

A finished metal Jain Zar, not a great sculpt by any means, but one that lasted over twenty years before a recent replacement.





Based to be fielded with my army with autumn grass to match the Eldar's race's decline.

Cheers,

CB

QFT, both my favorite model but still needs a refresh, although with current GW his gun would change to that off a Riptide or Warlord Titan.

The phoenix lord models do show their age a bit don't they. Odd as most of the old aspects still look good. MR was one of my favourites too and you've painted him up well.

Thank you Maharg. The Jes Goodwin sculpts have held up really well and I still feel they set the tone for all the models that have followed. I wish I remembered everything Mark Dance said about the history of the Exarch models when he first showed them to me up on Denman Island. He had some of the first casts to paint up before they were released and I remember being a bit disappointed myself in several of them.

Fuegan finished,

He looks great. Really darkening down the red like that gives him a grimy sooty kind of a look. (Now I'm thinking of Sooty the puppet, he doesn't remind of Sooty at all, I promise)

Love to see some Phoenix Lord love. Jain Zar looks great in those colours. The black and bone on Maugan Ra is a classic, of course. I wonder if he needs one or two bright spot coloured points to contrast with the dull bits, but I don't know what to suggest for location. Fuegan has a lovely deep red.

There was a discussion on Facebook I saw yesterday about the oldest sculpts in the range. We reckon that Njal is older han the Phoenix Lords, as are two of the current three Warlocks, but Phoenix Lords are pretty damn close to the oldest thing available. Not surprising as Jes Goodwin is amazing. I maintain that most of his Aspect Warrior sculpts are better than the ones that have followed later. His original Howling Banshees are still the best, in my opinion.

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

Thank you all for your comments.

Warlocks were released before the Phoenix Lords and likely Njal as there was a Space Wolf push just before the Eldar releases.

Finished Baharroth.







Last two together.


Next I should take a shot of all six.

Nice job, Cap'n. I like the dark blue-grey and the red gems are great against it. Most definitely need a shot of the Phoenix Six.

Fantastic collection. What a triumph. Lots of nice individual choices but they still recap some of the original Evy Metal schemes. And they look great together too.

The original DA exarch is an Iconic sculpt. I got one and few original avengers for a little squad of my own. I just always loved them. What's the plan? What are you needing plural exarchs for?

Spectacular assemblage, each individually excellent, but as the old Napoleonic painters truly say 'here, in mass lies perfection'.

I have some spare Dire Avengers and wanted to make at least one more squad or add the option of smaller units for 9th.

Briancj wrote:The 90's are strong with this one...

I should sig that.

So the Jetseer kit is pretty simple.


As I was building it I noticed something was missing from the model...the large robes or cloaks that the Farseer wears. So I made my own to billow out from underneath the sash. Impractical...very likely, but this is 40K and I have a space elf riding a flying motorbike.


Jetbike is getting the attention first.


So loads of work still to do, but now he has a very long cloak flapping behind him.

Any future universe that has tanks with rivets can have elves riding flying motorcycles with flowing cloaks and robes; excellent start to this build, Cap'n!

It is actually 0.10 mm plastic styrene, which made it a real (deleted) pain to shape, that flaking you see is having to do additional curling to make it fit between the rear upper fins.
