Ok I wanted to do a quick 750pt army to keep me going till guard come out. So I decided on a Eldar Ulthwe list.

Here are my fist models, the rest of my army got delivered today so I have until 2nd May to finish it all

The bases are not done yet but will be a snow/winter theme

Very nice solid looking guardians.

Did you build up the bone colors per normal? (browns > bone > white)

I'm thinking that my Eldar will be Ulthwe when I finally get to them. It's a nice quick scheme thanks to the black armor...With plenty of chance for great freehand details.

Can't wait to see you press this force into service over such a short period of time ^_^!

Nice and clean with the paint there. And the snow is going to be a very nice contrast.

Thanks, the bone is even quicker,

Bleached bone > sepia wash > bleached bone.

Im doing them in threes, i got 3 more done last night and stuck the wraith lord together (which took a lot longer than i thought it would!)

The grey high lighting is the bit that takes the time!

Im going for a good table top finish on them and im excited to see them all finished

They are sprayed black, the highlight is codex grey then washed with a black was to take the edge off the high light.

Lo.

i do the winter bases for all of my models and to me the simple and effective way to do it is:
before painted: put modeling sand and other decorations on and spray black,
painting: drybrush sand codex gray
flocking: put PVA glue in 1-2 places on the base and "dip" the base in the games workshop snow
hope this goes well

Ok , update time!

Ive finished the Guardian squad and have stuck the Storm squad together. Ive decided to up the army size to 1500pts but i don't think i will get all that done by May - but you never know

Anyway here are the current pics. C&C welcome but please remember this is a table top standard army and the bases will all be done when the core troops are painted

I like the scheme, simple, crisp, effective and strong.


Kudos.

I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays! I want to hear X-rays! And I want to - I want to smell dark matter! Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly because I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid limiting spoken language! But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws! And feel the wind of a supernova flowing over me! And I can know much more! I can experience so much more. But I'm trapped in this absurd body!

question are you going to give the aspect warriors the ulthwe colors or their own traditional colors?

first up i dont know anything about eldar models but i do know that you have a very nice simple paint scheme that works well, and will look even better with snow bases.

Also i think the trick to a good eldar army is the pose of the models. unlike orks and SM etc etc they have to be war like AND gracefull. poised to strike and i think you have acheived that very very well here.
great work and i look forward to seeing more

thanks

No they will be tradition colours.

However as i only have Dark Reapers and Banshees these are in black and bone colours anyway so they will blend with the army. The main colour will come from a troop of harlequins!

Thanks for the interest
