Nice looking Eldar and I like the old classic models, some of them anyways, I still believe I have a bunch of them laying around some where.
The terrain piece looks really good and think that it is a great idea to paint the bases to match your table, it will look great!

Running through the plogs and saw your eldar post ...
I like your schema and your version of the scorpion ... not sold on the banshee ... though I painted old school Ulthwe and have gone by the old studio army scheme (2nd/3rd ed) ... showing that I have no originality

Sorry for the necro-post, but I didn't want to start a new thread.
It's been a while since I've posted and I've done a little bit of work on my Eldar, not as much as I'd like but anyway here we go...
I've decided that I'm not going to paint my aspect warriors the traditional colours. I talked to my colour consultant (wife) and based on my army colours I'm going to use Bone as the base colour for my Striking Scorpions, purple for my Howling Banshees, green for my Fire Dragon, probably bone for my Warp Spiders and purple for my Dark Reapers. I've not had a chance to do test models for all of them, but i do have a test of the Scorpion and banshee. so here are pics:
I've done a graduated fade on the sword but will probably be doing some wet blending on future models.
The Banshee is my first attempt at a lightning effect for a power weapon, so I'd be keen to hear advice on how to do better.
The lava flow on the base is to tie her in with my game board.

Awesome terrain, farseer! The guardians are looking right and proper on top of them!
The off-white bases are looking good as well! Props to the wifey!

|jaysen||Wow, that color scheme is really going to stand out. I like the mix of old and new models.|

Thanks again everyone for the praise and constructive criticism I appreciate the praise and look forward to the critiques.
I've spent the last few weeks working, it's been crazy busy at work and I haven't had the time/energy I've wanted for painting. So as a result all I've gotten done is my last 2 guardians. I've finished the Heavy Weapon Crewmen. I've also done 2 terrain pieces, I'll put pics of both below. The ruined building is my first attempt at working with foam core. I'm pretty happy with the result and will be working on some more pieces in future, I will be planning them a bit more than I did this piece and I've learned a few things about foam core that will help.
Now the Pics:

In the model pictures, the models don't look too good, mainly because the light source. It makes the models look dull. You probably need a better light source for taking individual pictures.
However, on the terrain piece, they're looking gorgeous!~
Keep at it!

Finally got the motivation to finish the 4 guardians. So Squad 2 of the guardians is 2/3 done, just the HWP and crew left to do. The crew will be first, it looks like I won't be getting a game in this week so hopefully I'll get the majority of them painted by Monday.
I keep sidetracking myself with terrain projects and the re-basing of my O&G army.
The whole squad to date and the piece of terrain that distracted me from them:
Hope you like them.
