I agree more with the rationale for a cape, it at least doubles the level of 40k!

Would love to see your process on shaping a cape out of styrene.

Thank you 416_SpaceWolves. The process was simply cut out a cape shape, using the round cylinder of a small file handle start to curl the styrene with an emphasis on the curved end that was going to join under the waist sash. Continue folding and compressing that end until it is as wide as the waist width. Do another cut with a craft knife to match the curve of the lower torso/waist, as some polystyrene cement and crimp with a small clamp.

Hey Captain, the farseer is looking really cool, good work on that cape. I've greenstuffed a few capes in the last few years and it's not easy... looks like you've got a good technique there.

Every eldar collection needs more pskyers!

I also love that squad of Phoenix Lords, they look fantastic together.

Love the nostalgia hit with all of those Phoenix Lords, the odd thing is they do not even feel that old to me but I assume they are the best part of 20+ years old. Anyway, great to see them painted so well and together.

The Farseer on jetbike is looking a perfect shade of Alaitoc blue and the added cape really adds to the model. Nice.

Rinkydink, thanks. I use the blue cloth from a cheap light box that I have, but it is really small and I do not use the box portion. I also do not have a camera with MACRO and instead I am just using an old phone. So I cannot touch-up my photos...other than to crop/resize them with Microsoft 2010.

Finished. Couple of things I wanted to achieve: the wraith bone look of the bike other than the canopy and fins to create a contrast between the Farseer and the bike, and to have the blue of the Farseer be distinct from the bike blue.









Like all my other bikes and Wave Serpents I have port and starboard running lights.

Jetbike Farseer is a great looking piece! I love all the bone and the pale blue spear tip is a great flash of light on there. A lovely elegant piece.

Always loved a good jetbike. Never did get into working on my own squad.

Oh man, that is beautiful!
Great idea changing the tone of the blue and bone color on the farseer compared to the bike.
It's really easy to blend things together when using similar colors, but you managed to make them stand out perfectly!

I "finished" this fellow by removing the overly large Eldar Missile Launcher and replaced it with a standard Reaper Launcher.

Still debating if I want to use the extra Reaper Launchers I acquired to turn three into Exarchs with Tempest Launchers.

Thank you youwashock, Yorkright, and Viterbi.

Now for the resin turrets I have had sitting in a bin for quite a long time. With the sudden increase in wounds on Marines I figured I needed a few more paired Starcannons and Scatter Lasers as they will no longer be -1 to hit mounted on moving Vehicles.

The Scatter Laser on the bottom right was the one I finished before and you can see it has a slightly different shape/style to the Turret

Thanks Viterbi, there must be some blindness as my Marine opponents always pour a tremendous amount of firepower at them, even if they have dropped of their cargo.

Thanks Dysartes. I have a pair of Scatter Lasers that I am doing for two of my old War Walkers...perhaps I might try and craft some Star Canons for them as well. No models unless I can get my hands of a few old metal Dire Avenger Exarchs.
