3 minis slightly converted, 3 posed to my liking, ranger as is

i emphasised the unique look of each model - the thing i love about Death Squads - each squad-member can and must have a distinctive look




still thinking about left-hand weapon for the warlock - knife seems a bit lacking in pathos

and the ideas for making guardians\exodites look cool\unique still shun me somewhat

Yiiiiiikes that ROCKS! You have GREAT sense of pose! All the models look very well balanced and, well, 'real'. Not to mention everything looks so clean! I always make a mess with glue and greenstuff. Wink

The Dire Avenger with the sword is my favorite. BADASS!

EXCELLENT choice of minis & a GREAT sense of motion. They should be something VERY SPECIAL when all painted up. What a Face

WOW! I normally don't care for Eldar... and while I still don't, I would not mind having a Squad like yours in a drawer... in a dark corner... on storage... in another country.

JUST KIDDING! You are one of those people that make me re-think the Eldar. AMAZING WORK!!!!

Thanks for sharing... the highlight of my day. cheers

I kind of said this in the welcome bit - but thought it needed to be in the right place with the painting and modelling stuff. Ace poses all round with particular stand outs having to be the officer with the twin shuriken catapult (mainly for the excellent cutting on the necron/dire avenger head and face (very nice) and the action pose of the dire avenger on the bottom righ of the two pics. These are very good and nice to see everyone as unique (the dire avenger kit in particular is very versatile).

I love the warlock model (it is one of my favourite eldar - I have a similar pose to this one sitting in my bitz box). A couple of ideas for the knife - the new dark eldar kabalite warriors set has some cool unique pistol weapons that might work for him, there is also a very cool looking curved power sword which looks quite arcane.

On the exodites - have you thought about using a mix of guardian and wood elf parts (I've never done it myself - but I've seen some ace kitbashes using these parts on the web)? The kabalite set would add some even more arcane parts into the mix.

Just some thoughts - look forawrd to seeing what you come up with next.

Cheers
Laney cheers

a small(pic-wise) update
i assume that a non-painted scorpions, banshees, rangers were seen a hundred times over

remade the warlock:
decided that a witchblade goes to the witch
borrowed a pistol from one of the rangers, kept the knife handle - hence the archaic look of it

and i'll be using this post to extend my gratitude to Mordheimer for reposting such a helpful tutorial

Nice miniatures. I really like the pistol it came out great and I love the avenger with the cron head it reminds me of some of my old rogue trader Eldar Pirate minis. Good creative use of pieces all the way around.

a post for, mostly, summing up what was done up to date:

1-st shot: aspects of my squad
2-nd: exodites
3-rd: warrior aspirants; c&c concerning the one with the catapult would be appreciated - my first attempt at sculpturing hair

i'm also searching for a way to empathize them being aspirants: had thought of adding a stylized wing on each ones back. suggestions are welcome

Looking good - nice clean job on the hair in keeping with the rest of the model.

On the Aspirants: a wing sounds cool - but how about letting the paintjob do it for you? Example - paint them grey and then pick out key parts in a specific aspect colour or paint them in a different colour to the aspects e.g. grey, red - or something linked to the craftworld (so that they can be used as aspirants for all aspects).

Ta Laney cheers
