That new Jain Zar is a beautiful mini, she look suitably impressive surrounded by her banshees. I love the armour and contrasting plumes - as for her weapons, I think matching power effects would be great. Electric blue would stand out for sure, or maybe a lighter green to tie into the cloth?

The Alien. The Other. The Inconceivable. The Eldritch Abomination is a type of creature defined by its disregard for the natural laws of the universe as we understand them. They are grotesque mockeries of reality beyond comprehension whose disturbing otherness cannot be encompassed in any mortal tongue.

I'd do a silver as well to match the banshees, but tint it blue with a thin Wash. Or go all powerful with a blue ink and edge out with white. 2 cents.

I think if you go with a glow or lightning effect, use the same blue as her eyes.

Welcome to my plog Tzurk. Thanks all for the input on the weapons I have a couple of photos to share. The first one was an attempt to make it look like a power weapon. Did not like it and went with a dark blade. Worked on the base too and am liking how it is turning out. Any CC welcome.

That looks pretty sweet. The color transition is better on the dark version, for sure. It works better against the light colors on the rest of the model, too. All around a good choice.

Thanks for the input all, she has been quite the project and I am calling her done. Here is a few shots of Jain and banshees in action.

She looks great , matches up nicely with the unit, but still blingey enough to be seen as a character.

She looks like she was fun to try to get good, in focus, pictures of. Excellent work!

I have to keep telling myself I don’t need to pick up the new version of her, but it’s hard when I see her painted up nice...

Nicely done. The gold was a bold choice but turned out to work well with the bone color. However the darker hair is awesome. Being her signature feature and all.

Don't you have something else to be painting?

I’m honored, thank you all for the comments! Nice to know all those hours are appreciated.
@Graven thanks bud, had to add some Nurgle flavor in there for you.
@NotOnline you need a break from the fodder and paint up a champion. ;-).
@Theo thank you!
@Nev and Youwashock, she is a great model and I would love to see your guys take on Jain.
@Gitz thanks your urging to get me on Dakka has definitely upped my painting.
@Dr H thank you Doc.
@Solar-lion can’t a guy get a night off of painting? :-D.

Started repainting a few eldar jetbikes I traded for. The one on the left is one of my conversions I did a few years ago and will be the template.
Thanks for looking.

@Youwashock, I am not sure there is a way to do the same freehand on the new bikes as the old ones. If you have any ideas I am all ears.
@Graven are you saying Khorne would be pleased?
@Gitz yep these are the latest from GW.
Did a bit more work on them today and dug out the rest of the psykers on bikes. Do you think the red is pretty close to the original?

Reaonably close yeah. Might be a bit brighter/more orange on the bike hoods, heads look a bit closer, but I suspect shading and such will take care of that, and its only if I really squint. Looking good.

I’ll second the slight orange tone on the new ones. One the table zipping about, probably not that noticeable.

The new bike models are a lot nicer then the old ones, although probably harder to do conversions on the riders. Always interesting to see how people kitbashed seers/autarchs on the old ones, not sure how many I’ve seen on the new.

A little bit more work on the bikers, trying to get the same tone but I can’t remember the exact colors I used.
Worked up the swords it’s different than the others but I could go back and try to change the older ones to match these.
