Hello all, I've got about 5500pts of Eldar to get out of the bin and onto the gaming table. Thus far, I'm still working out the color scheme for the Guardians and Dragons. Take a look at the pics and let me know which you prefer and why. Also, this is my first attempt at gems, and while green, red, and blue are popular, getting something orange is a bit more 'fun'.

These are just 'concept' minis. The flash, mold lines, and drybrusing mess will be cleaned up before they are considered 'done'. I'm just trying to see if the color scheme really works, and if I can pull it off repeatedly.

I take it that the colors work well? If so, I'll get to cleaning up the other 60 Guardians...

I would say they do, yeah. It is a simple yet striking theme and it works very well.

Very nice man I wasn't to keen on it at first but after a minute I really dig it. Have you got any vechiles. If so I would do one of them up in concelt as well just to check. Even if it is only a Jet Bike.

For 'just concept models' they already look pretty good, I prefer the
orang/grey of the guardians. The bright orange really works well with the grey.

OK! I finally have ONE model ready for inspection. I believe this guardian to be 99% complete, just needing a clear coat and some more critique. I'm not sure just how to do the grenade packs on the back side of the model. I seem to have lost some of the color in the green gem....

I love it dude. Your white is nice and pure yet a little dirty at the same time. I don't know if that makes sense. I'd say the green looks fine.

As for the grenade pack, I'd probably make some of it white. Not sure which part of the pack im talking about though.

Very nice! Turned out quite well. I would paint the nades in a Boltgun/Silver or the orange of the armour if you don't want too much contrast with the model. Hell, the green of the gem would look good on the nades as well.
