    Lilac Craftworlds Eldar

    Hey Lads,

    I've been engrossed by Dechala Lilac ever since it dropped and have been looking for any excuse to use it.

    Tried it with Tyranids;

    Then Dark Eldar;


    Neither seemed to suit.

    Finally settled on Craftworlds Eldar;



    Its a bear of a colour to use, takes about three layers to get a good opaque finish.

    Still experimenting with best process for the paintjob, also not certain about the gold/bronze.

    Keen for feedback from y'all

    More progress on the Banshee Exarch.







    Just the blades left to do and some additional touchups.

    I've decided to do urban basing as it is very creative but drab enough not to distract from the bright colour scheme. Let me know what you think.

    Rangers have been completed. Stoked with the result, just wish I had better/brighter bulbs for my lightbox. What do you guys use?

    Nice smooth lilac! It definitely fits the theme of the Eldar in a lot of ways. That's a lot of smooth layers!
