Amazing details you're adding in there.

I feel the Epic tickle at least once a year... I will forever be the game that I go back to.

I think the present version is quite strong, but it is also a bit limited because of the tournement scenario.

I added some Elf Flesh highlights to the orange, Blue Horror to the black and Elven Gray to the weapons, and I'm not convinced the photos show any of them… I've got a few hours tonight to paint, I'll see how I like them then and decide if I want to go further still. The other two tanks are progressing as well, I finished up everything on them except for their hulls and weapons. I'll start in on those tonight too.

Thanks guys.

I'm calling the Scorpions done, painting-wise. I hit them with one more highlight on each color and finished up the other two tanks this past week. If I have time this weekend I hope to hit them with a glosscote so I can put the transfers on, and then dullcote them and put the tufts on the bases. Next up are the Cobras, which I'm starting on tonight.









These are my objectives that I'm currently battling gaps on. Filling the gaps smoothly has been a bit of a challenge.



Finally, completely un-Eldar related, I built a Lunar-class Crusier at lunch. I picked it up at Adepticon's bitz trading. Anyone know of a paint scheme for Battlefleet Armageddon?

Lovely work on those Scorpions, well done. Smiley

As for the BFG Cruiser... I always like the Studio green and white actually, but I've seen some in blue-greys that looked very nice too. And of course, the official game box art in red, white, and gold is very striking indeed!

Thanks, Cobras got their undersides finished and they're now mounted on the bases and getting the black worked on.

A poster on TacComms said the BFG box art is supposed to be Battlefleet Armageddon (ironic?). I've seen a couple of paint jobs with it being a yellowish brown hull, but I think an actual gold would be much snazzier.

Those Scorpions look extremely nice Smiley ... Also the colours contrast beautifully. Once it is decalled up, I reckon they will be awesome Smiley

I think a bright gold hull might be a bit too much, but if you gave it enough shading and added details in white over it (maybe with very light turquoise lights?), it could look very good. Perhaps they could be the colours for Battlefleet Sol?

These look great!  I like how the grey really picks put the barrels.  Makes me want to go back and finish up my Eldar.

Thanks guys.

I finished up the black on the Cobras this week and started on the gray, there's just a highlight or two left for that. I'll likely get to that this weekend, and may be able to do the jeweling too so I can clean up and start in on the orange next week.









Additionally, my buddy Jon helped me out with some additional Warlocks. I now have enough for three Ulthwé guardian formations.



Finally, I tried out my new idea for basing characters with these Saim-Hann Farseers. The magnet I set into the base works well enough with a pin head glued to the underside of the figure. I'll likely start doing all my characters like this, unless they require extensive conversions (like an Oddboy).

Looking good. Great brushwork on those tiny models.

Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.
