Hi there all.

I started the hobby around one year ago and as for the forum activity I have been taking it more seriously for about a week and a half. I have started the blog on my new Eldar army but I get no feedback at all there. I decided to make the Project log and the blog in parallel. There are still projects I do that are not related to the Eldar as I am painting SM and Orkz for a friend.

I will today post more entries from my blog to get the feedback and after that I will keep you posted on my advance towards 1500 pts Army.

Next entries will be on Warp Spiders, Dire Avengers and Harlequins.

Hope this time I have found the right place for what I am looking for .

There we go finally the pictures of my first eldar models.

I have painted them with a black undercoat.
With white and not green as the main colours.

here goes the pictures

Default Harlequin Troupe Master


Almost two days it took me to paint his guy.

1) This is the HTM primed with white undercoat

2)Next I have applied the black with the "dimond" shape on the interior of the HTM's coat. And Aces on the back.

3) Here You can see the first colours I have put on the model. I used Turqoise and Purple for the dimonds, orange, purple and turquoise for the ribbons. Red and orange for the hair.

4) You can see that the dimonds, hair and ribbons have been highlited. I have also put some gloss varnish on the back of the cape in order to protect it while I still manipulate the model.

the close-up for the dimond pattern

5) Here You can see the back and the front with the gun and other metallic parts almost done

6)The pictures of finished model

c&c more than welcome

I have many more pictures over 30 of almost all stages.
It is the first model with so many "free hand" details I have done, and to be honest I am pretty proud

Default Dire Avengers Exarch

Here You will find the pics of my DA Exarch.

I have given him dual shuriken catapults but I really wanted to include the spear on the model.

As You can see (hopefully) the spear is put behind the Exarch as a part of a base.

1) I have base coated the model with scull white spray to start with.
2) On the next step I have applied the Snot Green on the armor and the black on guns and face. When it has dried I have applied a dark green wash on the green parts.
3) I painted the stones, swords and spear blade with warlock purple and added black on the helm
4) I added orange and covered it with yellow on the helm and the banner. I have applied the brow on guns and some parts of the equipment preparing it for the layer of bronze (metallic)

5) I highlighted armor with two layers of mixed snot green with yellow.
6) I washed the brown and bronze elements with devlan mud, and finally highlighted them with silver.

7) I added the silver details on the guns and highlighted them with grey.

8) I applied the mix of warlock purple and white on the stones and then applied the wash: mix of 1:1 Baal red and asurmen blue with a tiny dot of silver paint (just to get the extra glitter on them. Same wash was applied on the sword and spear blade.

9) I have applied the details on the banner and used the gloss varnish on the stones and sword and spear blades.

10) I have prepared the base with some grass, a bit of vine cork and little balls form the medicine pack (they used to be in the cap of medicine container no idea why)

11) I have finished the spear with a green wash on the handle and silver and bronze on the other parts

12) Finally I have made some touchups with white and the model was ready to reattach to the base

I know that I probably miss 4-5 photos for the stages but I will do better next time.

Tell me what You think about the model and description provided.
Do not hesitate to PM me if You have any questions.

Thanks for reading.

Mate, they are great. I love the warp spiders and you have done an excellent job with the Harlequin! The only reason I don't have any of those bad boys is because I couldn't do them justice, but you have!

My only comment is try and be a bit more careful with the eyes on that Dire Avenger. Other than that, these look amazing.

Nice clean painting mate. I really like the warp spiders, and the free-hands on the harley are really excellent.
