    Winter themed eldar

    So, I finally decided to actually build a whole army (after 15 year's in the hobby...). Luckily it coincided with the release of the new eldar codex!
    My biggest problem have always been to maintain interest when painting whole squads, so the thought with this log is both to put my work up for critics an comments, and to put a bit of presure on myself to actually paint an army. And also to learn how to photograph.

    Without further ado, I present the meager beginnings of my eldar army!

    Superb! I really like those rangers. Reminds of metal gear solid in a strange weird kind of way.

    Really awesome farseer too! And as everybody said, the cloaks are pretty solid! Nice!

    The shading on the cloaks is awesome!

    The bases look cool too.

    Re: Winter themed eldar

    thanks everyone! As for the blending - a bad digicam and a bad focus goes a long way...

    Seriously, though, i'm pretty satisfied, and the rangers are an absolute joy to paint - among the best minis GW has ever produced, in my book.

    The rest of the army will consist of the following (roughly):

    10 Dire Avengers
    10 guardians with spiritseer
    Wraithlord
    6 Warp spiders
    2 War Walkers

    that should be about 1.000 pts solid fire base.
    To take it further I also have Harlies, banshees, a couple of transports, and some Dark reapers. Oh, and an Autarch.
    But my first goal is 1.000 pts, then weŽll see. There's the new chaos in the pipe, and my long forgotten wood elves. And...

    As soon as I get som bateries for my camera I'll post some pics of my soon to be converted Warp Spiders!

    Do you have any special minis in mind?
    Admitedly, there are a load of nice figs, and I think they improve all the time.
    Some of the new empire stuff is great, as are the wood elves, but my heart beats for 40k

    Re: Winter themed eldar

    Well, to give the log a flying start I hereby present the prototype for my Warp Spiders, based on guardian bodies, but with the original death spinners
    The metal Warp Spiders are just to static for my taste.
    Note that this is an exarch I did for a painting competition, but the spiders for my army will be in the same style, although with the army colour scheme (mainly blue and white).

    Nice, hat looks excellent, just like all your other minis

    I love the freehand on his helm, could we get an overhead shot?

    Wow
    Dark Apostle FTW!

    Those are some really, really good eldar. An army painted to that level would be amazing.

    I'd say a few imperial motivational phrases, but you are unfortunately a foul xenos.

    Re: Winter themed eldar

    It's a shame GW cant get some poses as good as that Exarch.

    Beautiful minis. Cant wait to see you grab a Waveserpent.

    So is all these Eldar all you have painted for them now?
