Back to Eldar next. Here is another improved model. My army's paint scheme was black and red. I have thrown in a bit of ushabti bone and i think it sets the red off nicely.

Very nice yeah the bone colour works realy nicely for a bit of contrast.

Doesn't hurt that red and bone is a colour scheme i'm rather attached to

Thanks! Yeah it works really well on your stuff. I think our ratios are almost inverted (mine are more red and yours are more bone).

The Bogenhafen Bandits had their first game tonight. Lost 2-1 against an Orc team. The dice weren't with them, but not bad for a first game.

Some more variations on the guardian colour scheme:

Really dig the far left and far right designs as my top picks.

Thanks, I think I agree with you. I think i will repaint the majority of the Guardians like these two.

Yeah those two are definite standouts, although I must say I think I prefer the middle right-hand one. There's something about asymmetric paint schemes on Eldar that I really like

To clarify, for me the reason I picked the ones I did was because they have more colour variation than the middle two. I find many people tend to paint guardians in a very monochromatic scheme, the higher contrast two-tone scheme I feel works nicely for the guardians and helps them stand out.

Thanks for elaborating! I completely agree, you can see that they were a little dull in just red. Now to paint the other 16, but also have a Farseer Skyrunner to paint next!

Excellent work on the Blood Bowl team, I think the purple and white works really well .

You could use all the variants on the guardians over different squads as a kind of squad marking? (looking good by the way)

Thanks again for the kind words. I thought about squad markings, but the effect I was going for was a kind of dark red version of Ulthwe, and often you see a number of variations within the squad in Ulthwe armies. See here for example of what I mean: https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjFus_so8nSAhXF1xoKHVkQBoUQjRwIBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tentakelgames.com%2Fpost%2F14164516218%2Fulthw%25C3%25A9-done-right&psig=AFQjCNGmkf3ZOZ5niTGbSDPSZHKGUIk2sA&ust=1489144003805462

Haven't posted for a while but am working on a new BB team and soon some Necromunda.

This is the first model from the Elven Union team. I went for a really high contrast colour scheme, hope you like it. More to follow.
