Default Vorro does Eldar :p

my first blog on heresy (pretty much my first post too...)

took me a while to get these done, but i think it was worth it:

the colour is VERY close (for once) to what the real things look like, and im really pleased with it.

the idea i had for the army was scaly green, my fave colour (luckily for me i have a cupboard full of the stuff!)

though the dragons dont look it, they were basecoated with about 5:1 scaly green:chaos black, layered up to scaly green with bleached bone mixed in for a few highlights, with a final teeny tiny highlight made with 1:1 mix of the last stage:skull white.

a 1:1 thrakka green:asurmen blue mix was used as glazes between coats, with watered down black ink painted carefully inbetween the plates to provide black-lining where my hand wasnt steady enough :p

the helmets will be charcoal grey, as will the weapons. details will be off-white and, possibly metal.

i was thinking of a greyish pink for the gems and soulstones.

the rough army i came up with is:
  • Farseer + warlocks
  • autarch (wings)
  • 6 hawks
  • 6 dragons
  • 4x 10-man guardian squads (all defenders since i cant get my hands on cc weapons)
  • 2x 10-man avenger squads (both in serpents)
  • 3x vypers
  • 3x warwalkers (which i think are great with the new scout rules
  • 3x fire prisms
  • 1x falcon

the guardians will be lighter in colour, with their basecoat starting with straight scaly green. helmet inserts (face plates) will be white

the hawks will be lighter still, with a basecoat mix of 5:1 scaly green:hawk turquoise, with paler highlights. white helmets and rainbow effect wings, going from scaly green, to hawk turquoise into pure white on the last (lowest) 'feather' with black details swapped for white

the dire avengers will be like the guardians, with more of a blue tint to them (glazes of pure asurmen blue), with white helmets like the hawks.

vehicles will be a cross between guardians and the dragons, with black and white details.

im hoping (yeah right!) to get the armydone by september so i can pick a force for the maltese nationals. fingers crossed

ALSO: i hope to sell the army once its done so, anyone interested, drop me a PM

EDIT: bases will be soil + tufts of dead grass and snow scatter. i might do ice effect on the larger bases

C&C please!

yum, they look similar to my dark reapers, but significantly better. Man yeah, I would love to see more pics, so yeah, keep updating!

edit: I would also say take some pathfinders, and stick your dragons in a wave serpent, they kinda need it to get anywhere intact...oh wait, you're sticking them in the falcon? hmm, well you realise you have 5 heavy support options there?

lol, yeah theyre not to be used together, just so i have a mix to choose from. i was thinking a falcon might be more suited to the role of the dragons, though a serpent would be good too


and theyre almost done (should be finished tomorrow)

Very nice indeed!! I wasn't sure on how I liked them with the first pics but the added colouring in these just makes those models pop in a big way.

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?

Quite nice!

Original and unique scheme.

I'm following this project with interest.

'At two minutes to eleven, opposite the South African Brigade, at the eastern-most point reached by the British armies, a German machine-gunner, after firing off a belt without pause, was seen to stand up beside his weapon, take off his helmet, bow, and then slowly walk to the rear.' -John Buchan

Keep up the good work, Eldar can be tough to paint but looks like you've got that statement tied up in the corner.
