You pick tough colors to do well- and then do them well. The jet bike canopies are extremely subtle, I really like them.

Thanks guys, glad you liked the Craftworld update.

@Meer_Cat: I suppose I do pick the hard colours to pull off. Perhaps I like a challenge? Perhaps I'm a masochist? Probably both. It's a point of pride for me personally, I quite enjoy taking an idea that sounds odd or downright ridiculous at first then attempting to translate it into some good-looking models.

I want to preface this with an apology: Most of you came here for the Eldar projects both craftworlders and Commorans (commorraghians? commorrites?) but I'm switching gears here for a project so it'll be dominated by some Scions and Auxilia for a bit. For those excited about Eldar stuff, I'll get back to them (very likely after the Drukhari codex drops, fingers crossed it doesn't suck) and I'm sorry for the deviance to Scions for a bit. For those who wanna see this scions project unfold, I hope you enjoy it.

So for this project I'm doing something a bit different, I'll be batch painting this army as one big lot. I normally try to only work on one unit of infantry (5-10 models) a single vehicle or a single character at a time. My method is "build a box, paint the contents, move on to next box". I'll be challenging myself with this project to get everything you see below done both quickly and to a standard that I'm satisfied with. Now that it's all been primed and is ready for the brush I'm equal parts excited and terrified to try my hand at full army batch painting. Hope you guys enjoy this new project and as always comments/critiques are most welcome.

Thanks for the support guys, it's a big task by my standards but I'm excited to see it come together. The force is 1000 points without the bullgryn btw, a figured that would be a good useable size to start with. I did do a test model goblinpaladin, you can see him 5 rows from the left in the middle there. I showcased him here in the plog too but I have no idea how long ago that was. Maybe around page 20?

Wow has it been a long time since my last post. Life has been really busy (who'd of thought running a business would cut into all my hobby time so much?! ). Long story short the Scions project is on hold, just can't get them done right now. On the bright side I'm working on my DE again with a couple small projects. First up is the beginnings of my Archon, I did a couple small changes to the base model (didn't like the head at all, he looks like Bruce Willis and just an arm swap). All I've done so far is his cape, just got some touchups to do where the wash pooled a bit. I'm also working on some Wracks but they're not at a place where I wanna do a progress pic yet so this little teaser is all you get for now

Hope everyone is doing great and having lots of fun hobbying and playing. Take care all and thanks for checking in.

Nice work on the sticked skin.

Interesting teaser on the wrack, hard to get a feel for the whole model, but you did say “teaser”

Browsed through the whole thread. Very good looking armies!
Looking at your models was inspiring, especially the Dark Eldar as I'm considering to redo mine for 8th edition. Really loved the sails you did for the skimmers.

Sometimes balancing life and hobbies can be hard, but that's just the way it goes.

Interested to see more

Thank you everyone for your kind words, glad to be back and working on hobby stuff for these cold winter months.

Thank you so much Tyranid Horde and Ezki for checking out my plog, it's getting up there in pages so that's no small feat anymore, I appreciate the interest. The sails on the raider took me faaaaaaar too long to settle on (months of leaving it unfinished until I could decide how I wanted them to look) and I'm glad my little experiment paid off once I tried something. I'll have plenty more to do in the future as well with a couple more models I have for this force.

No painting update today (though I have made progress!) but just a little force update. I've finally purchased some glass cabinets to display my armies in, so happy to finally have a proper home for them. I still need to get some light kits for these to really make them pop but this is a good start. Sorry for the terrible photos, rushing to make this post before I head of to work.

Thanks for your continued support and I'm looking forward to sharing more updates with you guys soon, the Wracks are coming along nicely after all.

It’s nice for an army to have a good home to come back to after a long day on the battlefield. I could use more myself. Or just bite the bullet and box up some of the old stuff. This year is going to be fun when I move the Year to Date painted shelf into general population. Looks like you have space to grow.

@STG Not sure if you have them where you're from but I got these from IKEA for 50$ Canadian (about 43$ USD). They're not top-grade stuff but at that price I can afford to keep getting more as my collection grows.

@Nevelon I'm looking forward to seeing your year in round-up Nev, you're collection is getting into massive territories and it's always fun to see the new state of the gen pop display.

So here's my update for today, this time around: Wracks (for real this time). So far almost every stag of these guys is in some state of WIP, there's so many details on these models it's hard to focus and get just one part done before moving on to the next. I must say though I am having a lot of fun painting these guys, they're a good mix of flesh/cloth/metal/organic stuff/equipment. It's a great test of putting every technique I've learned over the years into 1 model. So I do have one question for you all here concerning their masks. The plan is to use Nihilac Oxide to put some wear on their copper masks as well as some silver highlight, the part I'm not sure about though is the trim going around their mask. Should I paint the trim a different colour than the copper to add another dimension to the mask or leave it as is since the oxidizing will make them pop out as much as they need to? Would love to hear your guys opinion on this, paint he mask trim or no? And if I do paint the mask trim then what colour should I do? Thanks for checking out my work guys, I appreciate it as always.

Wracks are looking good. I think painting the trim a darker color could help define the edge and set it off nicely after you hit it with the Oxide.

Hard to tell without a closeup, but I think your should paint the trim same as the masks. Obviously highlight and weathering it will make it stand out, as it should get a lot of those. With your palette, I’m not sure what else to do with it.

Looks like a nasty bunch of brutes you have there!

I did it! I finished my first unit in like... oh man... way too long. Anyways the wracks are done and I even took the time to do some phot-op with them. Hopefully the photos are clear enough and I look forward to hearing what you guys think of them. Any and all comments/critiques are welcome.

Thank you very much camkierhi and youwashock. For my coven units I wanted them to feel a bit scarier than my wych units, they are a group of form over function after all. As for the flayed guy he'll be my Acothist for the unit, I wanted a way to differentiate him from the rest of the unit and I thought "hey why not tie him in with the Haemy and Cronos, he does aspire to be a Haemy after all, why wouldn't he flay all his skin off to emulate him?"

Thank you very much for the comments guys, greatly appreciate them. I did take a few solo pics of the Acothyst since he had the most work put in to him. For those who follow me on Instagram you'd have seen these a few days ago (easier to post there during the holidays than it was to sneak away to my computer to update Dakka). Apologies for the harsh lighting that washed out some detail and colour contrast, my photography skills still need a lot of work.
