Interested to see the flyer in it's final glory
Thanks, the cape was faded using my airbrush

I'm just in love with the blue you use. Fits the Eldar just perfectly.
Thank you, I have went through a few pots of that blue up to this point. It ends up being three shades of blue, light, medium and dark when the models are finished.

The gun cabling could also use some highlighting.
Thanks as well, the Autarch was fun to paint! I was looking back at the pics of the wraith guard and the hilights and shades are not coming through well in the pics, I think that it is because they were painted on with the air brush and the camera lens has trouble picking up the contrast. I did cut some corners on thouse gun cables lol, I will go back and hilight them up a little more. I purposely left all the stones, except for one, unpainted for fluff reasons.

I'm back with a small update. I have the base starts painted in. I have to go in and place some color (blue, red, yellow) on a few of these to simulate planets. Then I will airbrush some thick sprays of light grey, before adding in the color streams (blues, purple, green, and red) this is when this affect really starts to pop.

I have few more WIP shots to show you guys, here you can see how I added the color streams, and then what it looks like once the masking tape has been removed, then finally how i had to tape it up again in order to protect it so i can paint the rest of the model.

Awesome stuff, so simple yet so effective, making me want to try at doing an eldar vehicle now.

Terrific! Really liking where this flyer is going, I'll be adding this project log to my 'list of awesome people's projects' for sure!

*Edit - Oh wait, that's how I got here... Well, it was worth it going from start to finish through this log again, it's great stuff Troy.

If my eyes could orgasm I would be a quivering mess right now, this is by far the best painted eldar army I've ever seen. This should come with a 18 certificate

Great work

Thanks!! A lot of credit goes to the people here at Heresy... "Stealing" ideas, reading tutorials, taking advice, it has improved my painting a lot.
