Thank's again!

The double pistol babe is also one of my favorites now, even though she was an easy conversion, compared to the warlock or exodite.
I think I will make her the squad leader if I ever create a new squad.

My Dire Avenger Aspect Warrior is modeled exactly the same way as her. but my pistols have extended barrels ready to have the dire avenger sights added.

great work looking forward to seeing them painted

How have I managed to miss this thread? - Great procreate work (It's my 2 part of choice as well). Very nice posing, ultra characterful. Love it!

Yes,

that was what I planned for her!
I gave her the gunfighter skill and equipped her with two shurikenpistols. Haven't played this configuration yet, but the next match will tell if it works.
The avengersights will have to wait until I have one or two more guardians and some more helmets for my squad, though.

An Avenger with Shurikencatapult, the marksman skill and avengersight would be much more efficient and reliable, but I like this model too much, will definately include her!

Same problem with my leader, I made a model with two swords, so I equipped him with a powersword, another sword and no gun. Because I like the model the way it is.
No surprise, he's not too efficient. Hasn't taken a single enemy OOA in six games! He caused many stuns and knockdowns, but that's it.
He's pretty much the worst officer in my squad, he was taken OOA in two games and missed one because of injury!

My next exarch will definately be less close combat oriented!

Can't use marksman skill with the Shuriken Catapult. It's not a rifle Sad it'a assult weapon. (this needs clarified in the rulebook)


ahh strap a Shuriken Catapult to his back so he can switch to it. lol

Here's also the first model with paint on it! Ignore the unfinished base!

How do you guys like the colourscheme?
The highlights make the red gore look a bit pinkish, but I think the scheme is nice for the guardians.
Officers will be painted differently.

Thank you Lord Greywolf,

I'm sure you could achieve the same result, the techniques are quite easy, it's basically just layering.
Thin down the colours with lots of water and gradually add the layers. There plenty of good tutorials on the web.

I thought this one was especially helpful, more or less did it the same way:
http://www.paintingclinic.com/operations/eldarproject/basicsguardians.htm

It's not skill but patience, it took me about 20 hours to paint this dude!
But it was the first one of my squad and I had to figure out which colours to use.
The next batch of models will be quicker!

Cheers
Bernhard

Some great conversions.
The painting on that guardian is fantastic well worth 20 hours of your time, can't wait to see how the rest turn out.

Nice colour scheme (good to see a different take on red). The quality of the paint job is superb - and for me it really stands out on the catapult -that is ace all round. 20 hours! (but it shows in the result).

I agree with you that improving your painting often has more to do with patience, than skill (and looking at tutorials around the net) and then give it a go (with a few hideous casualties along the way Sad Just Kidding ).

Look forward to the rest of them!

Thanks all!

You liked the guardian? You'll love this girl!


I especially like how the powersword turned out.



Again took me more than 20 hours, at this rate I'll never finish my squad!
Maybe I should cut back on my perfectionism to some extent.

Cheers

The sword is AMAZING!!! The effect is best when not seen up close (still looks good thou)... no I take that back. LOOKS GREAT!!!! Shocked It is the best NMM chrome I have seen from a non-professional... EVER!

Everyone... chant with me...

Tu-to-rial... tu-to-rial... tu-to-rial... tu-to-rial... tu-to-rial... tu-to-rial... tu-to-rial! I definetly want to drink from THAT fountain of knowledge. WOW!!!! Don't you EVER cut on that perfectionist trait!

Cool Thanks man!

No need for a tutorial here, this was made using basic techniques, nothing fancy, mostly layering!

There's plenty of good tutorials on the web:

painting in general:
http://www.paintingclinic.com/MainOperations.dwt.htm

NMM:
http://www.jenova.dk/NMM.htm
http://www.one-ring.co.uk/phpBB2/kb.php?mode=article&k=175

But the secret ingredient is: time!
~20+ hours per model!

There's no way I could paint a mass army like this!

Awesome power sword - I love the NMM and the whole colour scheme works superbly to tie in the banshee with the guardian. Patience is definitely a virtue in this case. Well done!

That is amazing. The power sword is fantastic, the blending is seamless, and the nmm effect is nice and subtle. Great job!

I decided to give my squadleader a more badass looking weapon.
Now I like the model much better, will paint him soon.
Very Samurai like, but I think it fits.



In our campaign I field him as a striking scorpion exarch, so I'll use the rules for the biting blade used two-handed.

Glad you like em.

It was an easy conversion using parts from the storm guardian box plus some wire and putty.

The versatility of the plastic guardian models is amazing, the hands and limbs can easily be repositioned, backpacks and weapons modified etc!
Get some plasticcard, modelling putty and a sharp knife and start converting!

Eldar don't have to look like fairies, they have as much badass potential as space marines!

Did some more painting...

behold my wraithguard!!


I feel that this model would look much better with some runes or ornaments of some sort on his head and the cloth, but I'm not good at making up such things.

I have also finished another guardian and am currently painting the first of my converted models, the banshee aspirant. At this pace I'll have a fully painted squad in three or four month confused
