    Craftworld Ynn'eal Tan

    --- About the Motivation ---
    A nice forum-companion has suggested me to make a blog about my army, as I had shown some heavy work-in-progress pictures in the general Eldar-vehicle-topic and seems they created interest.

    --- About the Pictures ---
    So I opened up this topic and I gotta say that I'm not only going to show my recent works and work-in-progress-projects (of which I have about 2 dozen), but first I wanna start with old pictures from like 1996, so don't be too rude with me about the painting quality of these old minis

    --- About the Craftworld ---
    When I started with the hobby, that was back in 2nd Edition and I still prefer many of the old miniatures a lot, so you might find some minis from 1987 in here... The painting scheme is heavily inspired by Biel-Tan and actually in the past I did paint Biel-Tan. Now I changed the rune of the Craftworld and combined it with the one from Ynnead to create a splinter-fleet from Biel-Tan, a child-Craftworld: Ynn'eal-Tan, the rise of Ynnead.
    I adopted a bit more white areas to be added to the overall dark green of Biel-Tan and increased the contrast of the green to get a transition from dark green to bright and saturated green which might resemble fresh grass and plants.
    About the Aspect-Warriors I have to say that unlike many modern Craftworld-painting-schemes, I prefer to stick to the classical approach that each Shrine and Aspect uses its own colours which all follow a more or less common pattern among that Aspect.

    --- The Pictures ---

    First I will start off with probably the first 2 Eldar miniatures I ever owned. Painted somewhat back in 1996 I guess, my Farseer:

    Pretty soon after that, I assume somewhere around 1996-1997, my Warlock:

    From somewhere around 1998, my Scouts:

    Probably 2000, my Dark Reapers:

    Comments & criticism always welcome, but flames may keep out please
