It all looks fantastic. I'm sure you've mentioned it somewhere, but is the basic approach to the wraithbone army painter bone primer, ogryn flesh wash, then bleached bone dry brushing? I was thinking of doing something similar for when I get round to rebooting my Eldar (not looking to rip off your colour scheme, just after a bit of guidance).
thats a lot of flyers!!
loving the army. keep up the good work
Love your army. absolutely inspirational work!
Prime of Army Painter Skeleton Bone.
Heavy wash of Gryphonne Sepia.
Drybrush Bleached Bone.
For the darker Striking Scorpion colour, change the Gryphonne Sepia for Devlan Mud.
Hope that helps!
Hit serious painting lull. Trying to get back into the swing of it but might need to break out something else to paint as a wee break.
Maybe Space Hulk.
I ain't dead! Fighting through a serious painting lull at the mo. Have focused on trying some conversions at the mo. Working on a Seer Council on Jetbikes!
First up, the Warlock Jetbikes :
Inspiration comes from another Eldar player on the Warseer forums called Fold. He has the post 'How to build a better Eldar Jetbike. I have nearly seven of these made though I'n not made the riders yet.
Folds original post is here!
Then there is the Farseers ride :
This is made from a combination of Folds Jetbike conversion and the Female Farseer of Jetbike by Easternheretic, also here on Warseer. Again, the rider is not made yet. Still thinking on how I'll be doing them.
Easternheretic's how to is here!
I feel it is only right to give a shout out to the two of them for inspiring me to build my own Jetseer Council! Hope they approve and that you guys and gals like!
I'm kinda new to eldar, and I love the colours. If you don't mind, there may be another Arithym army coming...?
Also, do you know where I could get some paints like the ones you use? GW doesn't have any of the shades you use.
Increase the peace,

Hi there post4mike.
Sure, feel free! Nice to know that this scheme has inspired you! Most of the colours are in the revised GW line under new names.
Bleached Bone = Ushabti Bone
Gryphonne Sepia = Seraphim Sepia
Chaos Black = Abaddon Black
Codex Grey = Dawnstone
Tin Bitz = Warplock Bronze
Dwarf Bronze = Hashut Copper
Shining Gold = Gehenna's Gold
Liquitex Transparent Burnt Sienna = I bought this here at Pullingers.
Hope that helps!
Thanks a lot! I'll get working on it ASAP
Increase the peace,
Cool, glad to help. Be sure to link me to your thread (assuming you do one) so I can follow what you're doing!
Just wondering how the epic jetbikes turned out? They look amazing so far!
Increase the peace,
Not quite what many are expecting, I'll wager but I've long considered adding a Corsair force to my Eldar. 6th makes it all the tastier.
So. While I wait for the remaining parts to build the rest of my Jet Seer Council, I decided not to finish anything else that's nearly done and painted this instead.
An Abyssal Drake Corsair Falcon (Abyssal Drakes being my own Corsair force allied to Craftworld Arithym)
A Corsair Falcon. Done in a test colour scheme for when I get foot troops. I think I'll try a wee free hand design down the left blade/wing piece in bone but we'll see.
Hope you like it!
damnnnnn i AM AM AM gonna start my eldar now!!! the boney cream is delicious on these guys keep it up man serious dedication with all that floating gunned up armour =p

Tolkein, you sir are a boss!
Another very nice eldar log I've found here. You have an enviable ammount of tanks and superheavies in your force. The colour scheme you use is very very nice, the bronzed weapon barrels give a nice contrast against the flat-matte colour scheme. I have to say, I find myself reminded of SDKFZ's Guard when I look at your tanks, but his scheme is good, so it's meant as a compliment.
Keep up the good work. How did you guys do the Falcon-style intakes on that Nightwing? I'm curious and tempted to try one myself since I have Aeronautica coming in the mail.
Thanks for the kind words! I appreciate it. Need to get back on the horse and get painting again.
As for the intakes, i took blu-stuff moulds of a falcons intakes and made greenstuff copies that I carefully trimmed to fit the Razorwing. Hope that helps!
It does indeed come in quite handy. Makes much better sense now. I might indeed go with this idea... it strikes me as an interesting design all through. I've got the pieces to get most of it looking right.
To any and all who still follow this thread, my apologies for being absent for so long. Lost the painting mojo pretty hard for these last however many months and to be honest, not really feeling 6th Ed yet and have been consumed by FFGs X-Wing miniatures game. Will likely be returning to my Space Wolves army soon for a complete repaint. I have not abandoned my beloved Eldar entirely though as a friend of mine asked me to join him for a tag team battle on Sunday.
I agreed but realised I would be the best option for air support. Thus, I have been converting two more Nightwings from Razorwings. Both have now been primed and washed with Sepia. I'll be working on them some more tonight and shall endevour to actually get some pictures together for you all!
Simple but effective, they look great together great job buddy!
Well! That's Arithym now the proud owner of three Nightwings!
