I'm not 100% sure about the pink on the armour. I think it would work better with only blue/purple. Instead keep the pink as a spot-colour and use it on cloths and maybe spiritstones. Also I'm not fond of guns with the same scheme as the armour, it blend together and hard to pick out. Try to have it all blue instead and have less blue on the acctual model. Maybe only helmet, shoulders and knees. The barrel on the Gun could be a metallic or bone.
The blue is though a very nice colour that will light up any battlefield they set their feet on.

Good luck!
yeah im feeling a bit more confident with my painting so lets ruin some eldar

I will Probably try another Couple with less / no pink see how it turns out. The pink was the bit i wasnt sure of so i might take another crack

i will do another coat but i quite like the speckly blue seems like he has a frosty face

Harlequins would be good just to really blur the line.

Now i just found several boxes of eldar from many years ago. here is my first attempt at counting them
i bought a few models then bought a massive box of them off someone for 60 so im really not sure what there is

1X Farseer (metal)
2X Avatar of khaine (Both Metal)
30X Guardians (15XNew Plastic, 11x old all same stance, 4 metal)
