Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm going to work on vines tonight, and I'll get a pic up later! B&K, do you have any closer pics of those tanks? I'd like to see how you did some of the shading.

Edit: Another update!

Thanks Jams!

Here's another update. I started doing highlights before I put on thorns (stupid me!), so some I'm going to have to redo some of the highlights ><

Looking good. I envy those with the patience to paint these size models - particularly Eldar vehicles. Like the green and the vines, though I'd be tempted to thin the grey a little more, or even have a midtone between the grey and the black.

Well, the highlights aren't done yet. I'll do another highlight with Fortress Grey, then I'm tempted to highlight the edges and tips of stuff with pure white, but I'm not sure yet.

And yes, Eldar vehicles can be a bitch to really get looking nice. It's taken me probably 5 years total to get to where I am with these (of corse there was a 4 year break in there too)!

Here's another update! I've finished the first highlight. I'll be doing a thinner highlight of Fortress Grey, then I'll probably pick out the very edges and tips of things with pure white.

I finally compiled the pics together on my site, if you want to take a look at them all together: Here!



Here's some close ups of the whole process!
