Good thing Picasa's not blocked by my office's firewall.
Are you going to do the two-tone bit on your Warlock's robes? I think that scheme rocks!
The gems DO look great! Interesting that you chose a colour that's quite similar to your overall scheme (most use gemstones to add the accent colour).
And speaking of accent colour, I'm digging the green! Great fanny pack! I'm just not sure with the gold you used on the emblem.. I think you should limit your metals to silver.
I also think the bright brown you used for the pouch and strings are a little distracting. I would use the same colour you used on your Blood Bowl mini's straps or the bone on the Warlock's chest and shoulders for the string. And green for the pouch on its side.
By my ramblings, you'd know that I totally love your unique take on the Eldar! More please!
I'm glad to hear about the hole in your office firewall, mine seems to have the same issue (hope they don't notice it).
I took your advice about the Gold Emblem and the bag/straps. Thanks a lot for the ramblings. I enjoy and appreciate it.
I would say move your highlights up one more notch on the robes and look into getting some flat clearcoat or testors dullcoat. Looking really good though!
Word of warning on masking tape:
Tan = Full strength
Green = Medium glue, comes off easier
Blue = Weak Glue , easiest to come up. This is the stuff if you want to mask over highlights and whatnot. I keep a roll of blue and green in my workbench for model masking.
Thanks for the Info on the tape and the advice on the highlights. I've gone up a notch. I've not done a clear coat on this mini yet. I generally do 3-4 clear coats after I've finished so the paint doesn't wear off due to using the mini.
I'll be doing the final spray tomorrow, it got cold tonight and I don't want to fog the mini with cold spray. So here are the front and back pics finished apart from a final matt spray.
Thanks everyone for your comments on the colour scheme and for your advice on things that help the look of the mini. It really helps with my motivation.
I think I have to do a squad of guardians to go with the warlock next. Then hopefully I'll have the 2 OOP War Walkers I've ordered, and I'll be able to strip all 3 of my War Walkers and paint them.
