Blog Subject:  Eldar 12/08/13 Farseer and Ranger Squad.

When I said I was interested in the new Eldar, I was given some figures. A Farseer (metal) 3 Warlocks (metal, but not going to use them). A box of plastic Dire Avengers (10 in a box! not 5 like the new sets). Some plastic guardians (not using as they've been butchered with glue) and a built plastic Falcon ( bit messy, but workable).

This week I've been painting up the Farseer and the Ranger squad. I trimmed the fin off the back of the Farseer's Helm. I think they look better without.

To do the blades I started with a white base, over which a used a watered down Scorpion Green. I then selective used Thraka Green wash to make parts o the blade darker. Once this dried, I did hard edge highlights with white and random strikes across the blades at approx 45° angles.

The cloaks I'm particularly proud of. From a Bone base, I did and Earthshade wash, followed by a Thraka Green wash, followed by an Asurmen Blue wash.

Comments and criticisms welcome as always.

They really look great Cain!
The colors all work well together and they are very nicely painted to boot!
Looking forward to seeing the next squads.

Like the effect you did on the power weapons as well! ;)
