I'd drop the yellow on the Fire Dragon for purple or bronze. The Banshee Exarch also has seemingly-unfinished eyes.

They all look great, though - the Dire Avenger Exarch seems especially beautifully done. I'll definitely be following this, as I'm fishing for ideas for my own Revenant Titan.

Nice looking stuff there; the scorpion is in particular excellent. One small criticism is that the red on the dragon doesn't seem to have been highlighted much and looks a bit flat. Whether that's jsut the pic or not I'm not sure, but I did have the same problem with my eldar which are painted in a similar colour.

cheers for the nice comments guys :)

I tried purple on the fusion gun cartridge first of all, but it looked a bit odd.
I know what you mean about the banshee exarch.
I was going for the old school way of painting them, i think it was 2nd edition, when they had las pistols,
it might be worth changing tho cheers. :)

On the fire dragon the colours havent showed up that well.
And i know what you mean about the highlights, they are there, its just the photo i think. It might be because of the P3 paints ,they are a little more glossy than the GW ones, so the flash sorta hides the highlights cause its so shiny cheers.

Right on with the log.
I didn't get that much done last night, just a bit of cleaning up on the shinning spears. (hope this isn't going to be a start of a trend with me posting pictures and not actually doing anything but im determined to do more tonight)
Ive no idea what colour to paint them yet, so any ideas would be awesome, other wise its just white and blue.
Im also hoping to take some more pictures, maybe the wraithlord and the warwalker, i'll hopefully get them up tonight or tomorrow.

cheers

I like the Dire Avenger Exarch and Striking Scorpion a lot, and the Howling Banshee Exarch is almost in the category if it hadn't been for the crown-like thing on the helmet that GW sadly added from Jain-zar and the red around the Shriek-unit, which almost makes it look like Ronald McDonald if one look closely. :)

As for the Fire Dragon, I think he'll look as good as any of these other three ones with the gems on the sides of his crest painted like gems. When it comes to the Wraithlord, I think he'll need a lot more detail, like eldar runes (why not make some up yourself - the style is angular going into snaking abruptly, so shouldn't be too hard with some effort) or a pattern or two on the legs and head.

The ranger, being as good a model as one reasonably can demand, would maybe look better with some extra shading or highlighting to the cloak, since it for some reason doesn't look as good at it could've. Anyway, I'm happy to see that your army is being accompanied by an Aeronautica Imperialis task force. :)

They're looking good lez, I am going to try and get a daylight bulb sometime this week. Will be easier to take half decent pictures then.

Look sweet, am now glad i went for green instead of purple for my scheme. I don't think the guns complement the scheme though
