Very nice army shot of the Wandering Sons there Elbows. A unified colour scheme for the troops and tanks (with exceptions for cultists and demons).

Cool model and a great paintjob, really like the weathering on him. How did you do it?

I don't actually do any weathering other than some sponge-chipping with a dark brown, and then a Strong Tone Army Painter dip. Gives a good grunge factor on the Chaos.

Up next is a pair of Hornets, some more Wraithguard...and a few more Eldar goodies I can't take pics of just yet.

These purple and white models never photograph well (I need a coloured background or something).

I think the photographs look great, but then again in my experience it's a lot easier to be critical of your own stuff. It's a very cool colour scheme you've got going there, I feel purple is rather underutilised in a lot of 40k painting, don't see too much of it out there. The Hornets are a really cool model too. Good job!

Those hornets look great, and the colors work well. I'm actually quite envious of your hornets. They're a sleek model that fits the Eldar aesthetic and playstyle, and you brought them out well in purple.

Thanks, I dig the Hornets, at least more than the Vypers they're replacing. I clipped and left off the winglets...as I don't like them that much. I'll try to get some picture in game where they probably look better.

Some great looking Blackstone Fortress models there Elbows, the red eyes on the spindle drones give me a 2001 vibe from them.

Lovely pair of Falcons too, I like the switch of colours you've done on these in comparison to your hornets, excellent work!

Some great stuff here overall.

I really like your leviathan dreadnought head choice, reminds me of the big round lenses of a plague doctor mask or something.

I also like the vertical face markings on your helmet-less terminator.

Thanks, the helmet-less Terminator is Quthon Vale, my Chaos Lord - he takes either his Terminator armour, or his jump pack/power armour depending on the game - same dude. That's also why he awkwardly has a stormbolter slapped on the outside of a fist (since his jump pack model is left handed!)

I love the schemes on the Eldar vehicles. Very bold.

My buddy just sent me a Christmas present too...so now I'm debating if I try for that as well...hmmm...

Goal: 100 minis this year (a low number compared to previous years)

Current: 96 minis

Failed my goal last year by two minis...only 98 finished. This year is off to an equally slow start.

I love the Khymarae sculpts, and they do in fact look great in green Props on shoehorning them into your crew.

Navigator looks very nice as well, appreciate the subdued pallet.

Elbows,

Well a good start in the painting level. You have to think of that. Quality of quantity sometimes.

Yeah, he's a great model. Didn't turn out super well paint-wise, but "good enough" which is fine with me. He really embodies how you'd envision someone in that role in the 40K universe.

Nice minis, especially the old inquisitor, I have one and it doesn't look that good in metal but you've made it work well.
