Thanks gobert.

Now something I am working on for the Monthly Painting Challenge...almost out of time...so speed presentation.

The start, an Eldar Webway Portal made by a friend's 3D printer.


The four parts glued together and putty added to fill the gaps. There were lots as I asked for the model to be increased by 25%.


Applying my Wraitbone paint scheme.


Then constructing a base from three layers of chip board and scoring it to look like old flagstones.


Base primed and the two sides of the Webway attached.


Base painted.


First bits of flock and static grass added.


More to come.

The long painting and converting war continues...

CB

PS: Added one more WIP shot with the grass.

Old metal Guardians and their chainmail leggings. Too good. Portal looks fantastic. Neat choice, going with the overgrown look. Gives it extra character.

Yeah, the greenery over it looks really good, and natural too! You can see where it's grown from, which is a nice touch

The webway portal looks great. The layers even add to the feel that it has been grown rather than manufactured.

It’s always great to find bonus minis as you go through a pile! Great job bringing him up to speed with a classically bright paint job

That's a fantastic bit of terrain. The wraithbone is just the right colour, and the vegetation gives it that "Fall of the Eldar" vibe.

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

Just been back to sniff through the entire blog and your army is incredible. Such wonderful nostalgia, my old Eldar army looked no where near as good. But those models are divine. That webway portal with all the flora looks awesome!

In agreement with the others - the portal looks great, and the vegetation growing over it is a very nice touch. Good job!

I like the environmental effects on the portal, especially the greenery overtaking the structure. Nice effect there.

Great work Captain!
The combination of weathering and flora works wonders for that piece.

Some of the close up pics could be mistaken for real pictures. If portals were real.

You've secured my vote!

Love the webway gate, seeing well done Eldar terrain really wants me to make a whole board of it.

Also had a look at some previous pages of your blog, love the wave serpents (and their turrets) and farseer!

Brilliant work here mate. Old Eldar are just fantastically characterful sculpts and you do a great job on them. Love the step by step pics on the web way portal - a fitting background to the army. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you every one.

If you want to give the Way Gate a vote you can at https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/792549.page although you should check out the other entries. There are quite a number of fantastic pieces on display this month.

As a little bonus (as I only like to post when I have something to show), some more Eldar weapons for a Wave Serpent, Wraithlord, and War Walkers (again just using time to catch up on all those secondary or tertiary options that have not been painted yet:

Nicely done Captain Brown, I have many of those old eldar models. In some way I like them better than the new ones. Seems to me the older figs where based on a more space pirate look. Keep up the battle against the tide of unpainted models.

I wonder is there a complete list of all the original Jes Goodwin Eldar sculpts and so you have them all? That would be a worthy challenge.

I always thought they had more of a new romantic look that space pirate look! Nicely painted in any case

The chainmail, the trenchcoats, the hairstyles. RT Eldar had all the style. Thanks for keeping the classics fresh, Cap'n.

Lovely work as ever CB. Those platform crew are some of my favourite OG Eldar models - I always pictured them as roadies/techies for a Space David Bowie concert with their shades, earpieces, leather jackets and hairstyles...
