Hi there!

Just started a Mymeara Eldar army. This is the first army I've painted in some time (getting on 7 years). Hoped you guys could offer up some feedback and constructive criticism or maybe some of you just want to enjoy the photos. Either way here are the few models I've made a start on so far.

Dire Avengers Squad.

And my pride and joy, the soon to be Fire Prism but only the hull has been started on so far.

The hull of the vehicle isn't glued on yet as im painting them separately so the ugly gap at the rear should disappear.

Thats mostly what I've got so far, there's the rest of the avengers in the pipeline and the turret for the Fire Prism is waiting on some primer.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing the pictures and please if you have any comments I'd love to hear them so I can improve!

Cheers!

I like where you're taking the turqoise. Will keep an eye on this.

Cheers dude! Some of the depth of it has been lost in the photos but ill keep trying to get some nice snaps that do it justice.

Went on a painting binge last night and finished up the Dire Avengers squad

Overall pretty happy with how they turned out, might go back and tidy up the whites here and there.

Also, just finished construction on my counts-as Eldrad.

Im gonnna have some fun trying to blend his cloak and maybe do some freehand on him to break up some of the flat areas.

Cheers for looking!

Are the Avengers already finished? I think they would benefit a lot from edge-highlights and darker grooves, because compared to the Falcon they look very unfinished. The Falcon on the other hand is quite well done and stands in rather hard contrast to the Avengers.

I was thinking the exact same thing. The little highlights on the fire prism hull work great and I think the avengers would benefit greatly from the same treatment.

Is there a particular product or method you used to tint the fire prism canopy? I've always wanted to give it a go but I'm too chicken since I can't really practice on the few canopies I have. Also I might have to steal the pose you have for your Eldrad conversion :p. I like it more than the classic one everyone usually does.

The canopies are just tineted using regular painters ink diluted with a little bit of washing up liquid (it helps break surface tension or something - either way it works!) And steal away, I've always wanted a more dynamic model of Eldrad too, simple conversion, just a Dire Avenger spear arm, some bits hacked off Eldrad's model and a spear top and body from a farseer.

Been very busy with other things but had a chance to do some tests on making the Avengers stand out more. Added highlights to the armour and touched up the cloaks some more as well as tidying up here and there.

Looking any better?

The conversions are excellent and your detail work is crisp! I might add another layer of highlights to the black on those helmets though.

Lovely fading through the colours!

Chewmeister,

I agree that they stand out much more.

Cheers,

Awesome, I love what FW did for the Mymeara scheme. It's really got an 'Eldar' feel, I'm surprised nobody's got a plog up already tbh. Great choice!
Yeah the new pics of the Avengers look a cut above the originals. Definitely worth the decision to go back to them I reckon :)

The Prism looks like it's going to be really cool, my personal taste would be to paint the frame of the canopy too but that has nothing to do with improving it at all (just preference).

Also, poke out my eyes but it looks like you got a 99% blemish-free Finecast on that Farseer?! Really nice work :)

100% on were they where mate. Consider me subscibed to watch as the force continues to grow. Any plans on how you are going to expand, or just collecting what you like the look of?

Cheer,

Cheers for all the positive responses guys! Im definitely much happier with the new paint jobs.

Absolutely agree, I adore the Mymearan scheme it just fits what I see when I read their background.

No plans as such, though I did just rescue a Forgeworld Mk2 Scorpion from Ebay that I will start cracking on soon. In the meantime I'll finish up the avengers and Fire Prism. What im really waiting for is the new Eldar release everyones been talking about in the rumours. Cant wait to see what we get to put our paintbrushes to!

Again, cheers for the responses guys, i'll get some pictures of the finished Avenger squad/Fire Prism up soon as they're complete.

That Fire Prism is amazing, I love the fusions and the blends.
Noticed you hadn't glued on the "target-finders" to their backs.
I would like to see what you could do with a Wraithguard.
keep up the good work :)
