Not bad. But your paint seems very thick-- try applying thinner layers. You may need to apply two coats instead of one to get the color you want, but the outcome will be -much- better. Be sure your brush is wet, and you're not taking paint straight from the pot and applying it to the model. Take some paint out, put it on a palette, keep your brush wet, and apply thin layers. While you can sometimes get away with thicker coats on models like Space Marines and Tau, Eldar are very thin, fine models, and thick paint obscures detail much more noticably than on models which are mostly flat surfaces.

They look great mate, I'd be happy to play against them on the table top

Like Son of Horus said though, just try thinning your paints down a bit. The freehand on the banner is really good though!!

Here are the 2 firs painted of my aspect warriors squads I like the way the Striking scorpoin turned out but i am not too happy with the Fire Dragon it does look better from far away though, too many layers i think, any tips would be cool.





when I am painting something i havnt before i usually spend alot of time painting one from the unit then batch paint the rest.

Icon Converted Eldar Rangers

Instead of buying the metal rangers I decided to use some old wood elves bitz and convert some of my guardians to rangers, the weapons are a bit off but i am going more for looks. Just pre painting pics for now.
