Default Craftworld Altansar

Thought Id share my Eldar with you all. This is Maugan Ras own Craftworld of Altansar that he pretty much singlehandedly jumped in the Eye of Terror and rescued. Ill post more as I go along...

Sorry they're a bit bright, i'll work on my lighting and edit them later..

Maugan Ra, the Craftworld Benefactor


Autarch conversion from the one you get in the box. Fusion gun, Warp Pack, Scorpion Chainsword...



Dark Reapers (love the new models)


Test scheme and final scheme for my Dire Avengers...


And a smattering of Guardians and the Warlock to show thier scheme

Whoa that pinky purple looks superb on Eldar. A colour that basically signifies their mortal enemy, go figure.

Very nice work.

Not a fan of the colour scheme at all but that is simply because I hate pink :D

Very well painted however, don't get me wrong.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

The Dire Avenger scheme is terrific.

The blue goes really well with the pink. Nice work.

If you want to get into specifics, it's not really Altansar's colour scheme, but the hell with it, it's well executed.

Maugan Ra is still one of my favorite models ever.

really? it is according to the codex and all "official" pics ive seen.

The brightness makes it look a bit more pink than it actually is anyway, its actually more of a darker fushia, a combo of warlock purple and some red wash. It actually almost matches the codex scheme to a tee. Thanks everyone for the nice comments, that color is a pain to paint, glad ive only got a few guardians in the list and mostly aspects

Love them all!

The Autarch is the best IMO--you did the eyes very well!

Altansar's colour scheme is plain Red Gore and Chaos Black.

Then again, don't trust me with colours.
