Maybe, but you could just come up with a fluff reason for it. Some quick ideas for that - small craftworld, a brutal fight with (random race) nearly saw them overrun and a lot of their crafting capability was destroyed and hasn't been able to be repaired yet. Maybe they are a more religious craftworld that despises Vaul (maybe they are just way too into Khaine) so people look down on crafting and few people choose to become exarchs down that path. Or, maybe they spent a lot of time separated from the craftworld and just haven't had time to restock in decades. I'm sure you could come up with something!

after many attempts at getting a colour scheme i like, i finally have a technique i am happy with



so to take a break from painting the same guardian over and over again i decided to paint one of the tanks i have



not gonna lie this has taken me a really really really reaaaally long time to get it to this state
i will post which paints i used but i am not near them atm

so started with the main shell selecting which which areas i wanted to shade in





after that i did the driver but i didnt know how the window attached so i had to ask


added little details such as details to the pilots hud

you wont see this to much but i thought it would be good

and here he is in his place


Doesn't he look Happy

Moving onto painting gunner and turret



gave this guy a targeting screen to look at

and sat him in his turret which was painted the same as the main hull



you can see where this is going just continued doing it piece by piece next was the prism then the underside and engines





thats all i got so far need to do the antenna and the nose gun.

once ive done that i will most likely go back and redo all the poor pieces on it that need work

like i said ill post what Paint i used for what so you can do a better job than i did

ok got the final photos for the prism tank.





ok so i said i would say what i used



for the blue
started with
Aldorf Guard Blue
and did a thin coat of that all over
then Drackenhof Nightshade wash
then went back over with the Aldorf on the raised bits (thin layer again)
then on teh parts i want to fade i did a thin layer of hoeth blue did several to slowly raise the brightness
final one was lothern blue on the tippy top layer again keep it thin keep it safe

once all that was done stepped back and took a photo.... then realised it still really obvious layer so went back with thinned Aldorf over the Hoeth line
and a thinned hoeth over the lothern line
just to blur it slightly
Don't worry if you accidentally fill in the creases where the wash has settled after all is done its best to go over the creases with a detail brush and the wash


Spirit stones

First off Mechite Red
then evil sunz scarlet
finished off with Troll slayer Orange
yay


Prism Crystal



Abaddon Black
then Loren Forest very watery then hang the prism up with the point facing down, do several layers you are happy with the depth
Then Warboss Green same tactic as the Loren hang up with the point down with watery green
then Moot Green rinse and repeat as before.
Final item underhive ash on the point


those are the main point ... i know no one asked how i did it but thought it was worth mentioning

if you got any question feel free to ask next post should be the finished cloned guardians

Welcome all to the Eldar Museum

I am the curator of this Museum Dr Honka von squekerisum

we will be looking back to when some of you were mere glints in the milkmans eye.

back in 1990s they released a bunch of models made from all sorts of poisonous things like lead.

this is where our first piece is from here we have the striking scorpions



circa 1990 and 1991 these were back in the days when scorps looked nimble and before they were placed in bizarre positions.

at the same time they also released these metal guardians you can see the identical stance close combat guardians looking badass with their las pistols.... yes las pistols this was way back in 2nd edition when you could give them las pistols.



and the next item is a special piece which was given to my by my lovely brother Grim. can only described as "The judderman"

still a work in progress
this little guys is particularly kool as its the same age as me.

and thats all for now in the eldar Museum join us again to see some models who were made before some of you were.
and the reason that so many model makers back then were very sick from lead poisoning

BYE

Thanks Grim ive really been enjoying painting these.

ok so i had a long list of stuff to do round the flat today and a lot of things to get ready for my trip to the states.

so of course i spent the entire day watching youtube and painting some new models.

I started by doing 2 more Scorps still need to do the bases but brings me up to a usable squad hooray


But i spent most of the day working on a Ork killing Machine. so i worked on a war walker.
as its me of course its the old possibly lead model circa 1992 or 1994 weighs a tonne and had to pin it to the base or it would not stay.



i think the legs was a bit misshapen and is leaning forward a lot. but with double scatter lasers we should be able to thin a rampaging ork horde.

well i will be away for a few weeks for work so might not be updating for a while.
depends if i can be bothered to take something to paint with me and i think that i can't take lead items with me.... ill have to look into that .

anyway thats all for know
