Model Soldier Thanks for the feedback guys.

I'm happy with the Scorpion colouring.

My painting isn't the best, but with the Guardian looking flat I tried to keep it as a simple colour scheme.
Some of the shading around the Guardian's muscles etc got lost in the poor quality of the picture though.

normtheunsavoury It's a nice colour scheme on both but I'm not sure I like the finish, sorry!
They're lacking highlights and look a little flat to me.
Great start though, they just need a little more work IMO.

The Sullen One Interesting colour scheme you've got there mate, always wanted to see how Red and yellow on Eldar would look.

My Guardians and Scorpions.

First I thinly undercoated with white then painted basic colours of Sunburst Yellow and Blood Red.
I used a watered down Golden Yellow to wash over the Sunburst Yellow to give the main body a kind of glowing look.
Decorated with Blood Red flashes and Enchanted Blue rune stones and symbols.

Green areas were undercoated with Scorpion Green, all other areas undercoated with white.
I then painted green areas with Goblin Green and then used Dark Angels Green in all the little crevices and to 'frame' the muscle lines.
Yellow areas I used the Sunburst washed with Golden as above with the Guardians.
Decorated with Blood Red flashes and rune stones.
Weaponry was jUst Dark Angels Green with Scorpion Green highlights.
