Nice guardians. I like how the blue on their helmets almost looks like blue flames. Very cool!

Storm guardians look great, particularly with all the weapon swaps. Grey looks done to me

Here are some final army shots!

Quality of photography is not that great. I might need to rephoto in better lighting. I used a light box but not sure I am happy with the photos.

I also ought to do a whole army shot, but I need better light for that, and I am getting married next Friday, so god knows when I'll manage to get that done.

Regardless, I am incredibly proud of my work on this army. I am especially proud of the Storm Guardians that I put new arms on and especially the Wraithlords that I converted.

First, some HQ units.

And some troops...

And a dedicated transport

And then the Wraith Construct detachment:



And the heavies!

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

These are exquisite. Fantastic work, and the colours just balance out perfectly. Great job!

Very pleasing color scheme, nice crisp lines where needed and great shading and blending where not. Animated and dynamic posing. Great attention to detail (it would interesting to witch all the gems on everything!). Very, very well done.

Some of those older metal figures are hard ot make look good and easy to make look bad. These look terrific!

The set up of the wraithlords was brilliant, but the paint job was amazing, especially the eye on the seer.

So much character with all the old old guardians and dreads. And I love the red checkerboard bases. Really makes an impact against the white. An increadible job all round.

Those are all looking fantastic. I love the old school models, and the painting style, and they work together really well. The red and white tiles make for some unique and interesting basing too.

Also, congratulations on the upcoming wedding!

That seer continues to blow me away every time I see it

Lovely stuff all throughout, really shines as a cohesive force. Shout out to the lil' Epic wraith boi, love all those Epic Eldar Thingies, happy to see one sneak into this army (as a ... bonesinger??)

Congrats and good luck on the wedding!

Amazing looking work. Looking forward to a full army shot when you have time. So many cool and characterful models.

Congrats on getting married. Best wishes for a long and happy life with the better half.

graven, thanks. They are surprisingly grimdark, for such bright paints. The colour balance was a fluke, but at least I recognised it once I hit upon it.

youwashock, thanks. Wedding is more important, but I am merely my fiancee's assistant for getting that ready. This is mine

Captain Brown, I am very pleased with how the weapon squads make them look like a militia instead of a military force. Your two will actually be in the next batch of eight. They will be in the next 1000 points. But they are still very necessary

Riddle of Steel, I only know colour theory from what I have read online, but I think it all works partly because the bone is warm and the blue is cold. Conversely, the bases have warm sand and red, and colod grey/white.

Argive, I have a bunch of actual Guardians too, and I might mix bits in with them. Undecided.

Ezki, thanks, I think they look a bit mercenary, which fits in with the background that many of them were former Corsairs.

Gobert, the flames were an accident, but not I like it.

Maharg, thanks. Weapon swaps have worked really well.

Meer Cat, thanks. I tried for a very particular style on the bone and I feel I have accomplished it. I would be scared to count how many gems there are.

Theophony, thanks. I am not sure I am 100% happy with the seer compared to the others. I can't figure out what is bugging me though.

theCrowe, thanks. I think the bases is what makes it all work.

Bellerophon, thanks. I wanted this army finished before the wedding, so I am glad it is.

Boss Salvage, the little guy is actually a Rogue Trader Eldar Assassin Droid. In some cases, they are referred to as Battle Droids. I do have some of the Epic Eldar Knights, and may use them as Wraithguard.

Thanks Nevelon, I'll get that shot done ASAP. Frankly, I shouldn't have stopped doing wedding stuff long enough to write this post!
