Default Black and White Eldar Swarm

I started to get into the hobby about two years ago and worked on a few of my miniatures and I became very busy with school and work so I had to stop, but now I'm back in working on my army again and I have a few new pictures to post. I'm still a beginner at all of this. Tell me what you think.

Here are the models I painted before I stopped (all hand painted):

These are the things I painted before I gave it up for awhile.

Here's what I've been working on since:

Tell me what you guys think. I'm still very new and would love some feed back. Also I in vision my army composition is going to be a bunch of Guardians with an accompanying Farseer (or Warlock I don't remember which it is) and other things that I think look cool mixed in there as of right now.I'm kind of trying to turn an army that isn't a swarm army into a sort of swarm army with more meaning. I plan that the seer that I have with the Guardians will help protect them and make them last a little longer than on their own.

The black and white is a very striking combo. I like it!

Thank you Tawa! With my first go I started out using only a paint brush for everything. Trust me the white on the bottom of the Serpent took forever, then I tried some Army Painter white base coat on a few guardians and I had a terrible experience with it. It's probably just that I didn't use it right but the paint went on very thick and most of the detail had been covered up. And recently I've been using an airbrush that's all of the new stuff I've done and I'm loving it. The white takes no time at all to do. The picture I have of all the guys painted white I airbrushed in roughly two hours counting the time mixing paint and thinner and everything.

Thank you. The Wave Serpent is the only thing I really have completed. And I painted it 100% with a brush. It sucked haha.

Hey, it's a start.
And it's complete, so you can turn your attention elsewhere.


Which is my major hobby problem. My attention is everywhere!

Yeah, I'm trying to work it like a production line haha. Base coat a bunch of stuff then fine detail.

Yeah what I find to be the hard part is just getting around to actually painting anything haha. I still don't even know how to play the game, but I guess I don't really have an army ready yet anyways.
