I love your scheme man. The application of paint seems to be a bit rough, but I like them.

Pretty nice, I like the Inquisitor Lorr model.

I've seen these models myself- for the record, they are painted much smoother than they appear in the pictures. They really are quite something in the flesh (so to speak). Good stuff. :)

Now, if only Lorr was at good at gaming as he is at painting... :evilgrin:

..hooo, I'm gonna pay for that...

That is a sweet colour scheme for the Eldar. How did you get that red colour?

And to New Cult King-its just scab red basecoat highlighted with watered down 50/50 mix of scab and blood red

photos are a bit light. I adjusted one in photoshop using levels tool.

Seems a really nice paintjob. what happend to the canopy on the wave serpent?

in regards to the "rough paintjob", remember that these photos we see magnify the model considerably.

Why thank you luke:D

and when you say the canopy do you mean the see through plastic bit-if so i wanted to be able to see the pilot a bit more,i'm still not sure whether to put it on or not

Personally i think any eldar tank doesnt look complete unless the canopy is fixed in place. It adds to the looks of the tank, makes all of the lines and curves go together. when you take out that part you break the flow of the design.

Btw, do you have photoshop?

No as far as i know :cries: I'm not even sure how to get it

I've sent you a private message.

Your models are fine, but they are let down by the photographs. i love that dark red. Scab red is such a nice colour, it goes well with prety much any race from orks to space marines.

You either buy it, or you go the illegal way(first way beeing the best).

Nice work so far

Heres some shots of my thousand sons i went for a different shceme for these,they were painted quite quickly as well,but hope you like.I also tried to weather because before they looked too clean for chaos.

Hey wow, I remember you talking about Thousand Sons- didn't know you'd painted any though! The photos again look a little bit dodgey, but I'm sure they will be better for real. I'll look forward to seeing them! :)
