Well seeing all of this development on your Eldar has inspired me as well. I have recently started  on some wraithblades myself msn-wink.gif .

 
I did not revow or anything, judt wanted to share with the nice chaps who got me into Eldar again.
As for the wraithblades themselves, even though they have been quite fun to paint, as anyone else found them quite fragile? Had to pin them in order to make them a bit more stable. I don’t remember doing this for any of GW’s more recent models.

 

Great stuff Minuros, that red is gorgeous! I actually had the opposite issue where I coudln't snap the arms off thumbsup.gif

 

Hope its not too late to hop into the event?

Really liking the progress everyone is making. Its good to see so much aeldari love out there!

So I'm just away on holiday but managed to bring some minis and paints with me, yay! I've managed to pretty much finish Drahzar and the incubi. I just need to base them when I get home. I'll save the big reveal until then.

If it's OK I'd like to make another vow as I'm going to start on them whilst away.

Re-vowed Striking (Red) Scorpions complete!

 

Same colour scheme as their space marine cousins, who it seems were based on the indian red scorpion i was using as a reference (grey body, yellow legs, red stinger)

Also totally work with my old school Ulthwe craftworld scheme. Went a bit retro with the red weapons, not exactly 'stealth' but i think it works.. black was the alternate, and still might be a better choice but im happy with them.

 

Tried a few things on them that im happy with, in particular the snow/ice bases (combo of these ikea 'kulort' and tamita snow effect diorama paint) and using 'blood for the blood god' as a glaze over the dreadlocks

Not sure if ill be able to squeeze anything else in but its been great fun!

love these! Think the red you chose is needed to give that bit of extra interest, definitely better looks wise than black.

Vow complete! I've learned some things doing this, so thank you for taking my vow. It was good to get painting again. I've never based any minis before, so this was new to me. Slotta bases are weird to do and most tutorials do not cover them. So yeah, that was fun.

Nice work @harrowed! I like the dark elf style blue skin.

For Slotta bases I use thinned PVA glue or a similar thick medium that will set smooth but there is always the point where the mini hits the tab and that becomes sculpt dependent. They're stable and give you a timestamp like a blacksmiths makers mark but otherwise there's a reason they moved away from them..

@warriorfish I really like the bone armour on those guys, they look like they haven't fallen as far as typical dark eldar

Yeah, I grew up with the old "aliens look like humans, but tiny differences and weird skin colors", like old-school Voltron.

 

If I had thought about it, I would've made the top of the tab brown/wood like. Like a chunk of wood.

It appears painting all those Iron Warriors has been a pretty good practice for Harlequins. Diamonds are just hazard stripes with pauses, right?

Love your work TrawlingCleaner! Hope GW gives aspect warriors a boost ion our new Codex, would 2W and an aura like the judiciar revitalize the Howling Banshees?

 

Anyway keep them coming msn-wink.gif

 

Thinking about starting on my Farseer and Warlock Windrunners, hopefully will able to free up some time for them.

So many great models in this thread.

 

I have finished the Epic Warlock Titan. I went a bit more subtle with this one, and I am not sure how well it shows, but I used a lot of Druchii Violet to give certain parts a purple tinge. As a statue it looks great, but I think I would need to go with a light energy purple if I wanted to convey a living statue vibe.

 

gallery_29932_13461_12750.jpg

 

 

One last model to try a statue effect on, this time I am leaning towards trying for a Terracotta effect.

Dwango, Drahzar and his follows look great :)

 

 

Terracotta Karandras is finished. I ended up adding a little gold to pick out a few details to break up the model a bit, and I also used a light and a darker red for the same reason but from a distance it is not as obvious.
