Great paint scheme! Really liking the cleanliness of the models. I too agree with the above in regards to it being tempting to play well painted armies. This also allows for some great snap shots of the models and battle reports. All-in-all great army Props for the Thunderhawk! + rep for the nice sized army, Thunderhawk, paint scheme, and very nice bases.

Cheers,

Well, I got a bit bored of painting bikers, so I decided to paint something a little bit different. So I dug this guy out of my 'to do pile'. I bought the sternguard when the marine codex was released, but never got round to painting them, my Eldar became a priority for painting.





I took this last photo to show the detail on the shoulderpad, I'm quite proud of how it turned out.

More good stuff! The painting looks well done and the concept is sound. The lamp, however, seems to be out of place. I can't tell if this is on a sidewalk, road , or field?? Don't get me wrong..., I like the addition of this item, but I think that it needs to be placed a little more strategically. Perhaps elevating it up onto a curb, or maybe adding sidewalk lines..., something. (But that is just MHO:victory:)

Keep it up. I am really enjoying your work.:eek:k:

Thanks for the compliments and rep everybody.

On looking at the base again, I agree with the points you have made. Although, in the uk, our streetlights are not next to the roads, they are usually set further in to the pavement, usually quite close to walls etc. Also, the pavements where I live are all made from concrete/asphalt, so there are no cracks in there. But ignoring these two factors, I can agree that the base would have looked a lot better if I had made a few more distinctive 'pavement' like features.

I'm going to chalk this up to experience and if I make a base like this again, I'll try to make it a little more detailed, as it does just look like a lamppost in the middle of nowhere. hmmmm, maybe when I do his squad buddies, I could add more rubble, so that the unit as a whole looks like they are in a wartorn street.

***edit***

lol, it looks as out of place as that lamppost in 'The lion, the witch and the wardrobe'.

Lol, that was exactly what I was thinking man, haha! Despite that however I still think it is pretty damn cool, the entire model/base combo just oozes mood.

Aegius,

I would Luv to see that RTB1 marine I gave you in these colours :)

And as I have the time it is almost inspiring me to do a painting log of my own with regards to my puppies (SW), but my painting and conversion posing is nowhere to your standard hehehe

Question for you Aegius? Do you have a painting log with regards to your Eldar army and if so can we have a link?

ok, so here is how it goes. Early last week I hear a 'pop' come from my computer and everything stops working. I am currently sat on my old mans computer typing stuff in, so unfortunately, there will be no updates until my computer gets fixed.

I do intend to do a log for my Eldar, as they are the models I've been working on for the last 2 weeks. I've only got to paint 12 more models to finally have a fully painted WYSIWYG army. All of the models I need to paint are basedcoated, so hopefully I'll have them finished within a month or so.

Woo Hoo!!!!!!

I found an entire land raider in my bitz box. lol

It was from an older incarnation of my eagle warriors. I've stuck it all back together and sprayed it. Now I'm in the process of painting it. Once it is finished, I'll post some smexy pictures of it. :D

I've decided to take some pictures of the land raider, just incase I get sidelined by other stuff. Here it is as it looks at the moment:



Its a good job that I've done this, as I've been working on a tactical squad for the last few days, it may be a while until I get back to the land raider.

I was quite surprised to find an entire land raider in my bits box, but I've also found spare forgeworld parts in there in the past. lol

The LR is looking good so far. The Half/Half worked out very well on this model. Now add some details and weathering to finish it off:victory:
Thank you very much, I'll be adding some details sooner or later, but I'm working on some tactical marines at the moment. As for adding weathering, didn't you know that marines never get dirty, they are too cool. :smoke:
