Wow your color choices and painting abilities are great I can't wait to see you add washes and start thinning down your paint with a little water.
It will take a few more coats but wont look so thick on the figure.

hey they look good man, its always nice seeing other peoples work. i think all you are missing here is a wash and some highlighting but you did a good job coating the models. one question.
Are you using a Primer on your models? They look like they are not primed.

I'm not sure that you can get it in Aus but i'll try and find it. and about drinking it....maybe later :laugh:



Sounds good as well as long as it ain't toxic or burns kinda thing like brake fluid crap or whatever it is lol.

Also would either Simple Green or Purple Power actually get rid of the gloss varnish on the figures as well?
You can buy Simple Green at Bunnings. Nice looking Eldar models!

Heya. I used to have a huge Eldar army so i have a soft spot for these guys :).

Nice work on the models. I have noticed a few things. For your "bone" parts the paint looks a little too thick. Also do you have any washes? If so just give it a wash of devlan mud. Another thing i think will help is to add some white highlights to the bone colour this will stop it looking flat and give it depth.

To make your black pop either highlight with Codex grey>fortress grey or used kommando khaki. Other than that it looks neat and the Gems look awesome.

Keep up the good work.

:D

Hello threadomancy.

OK I have to echo what everyone else has said. If you can not get your hands on some wash then try this.

Future Floor wax 2:1 with black. You may need to add more Furture so do some test runs. Apply it all over the model, make sure it gets in the recessed. Then go over it again with sun burst just on the very edges to give it some omph.

You basing is outstanding for the most part, very neat and for the most part the paint does not look to thick, but you need to get into dry brushing and highlighting. I think you are starting off way to bright for your base color.
