Thank you for the kind comments guys, keeps me motivated :-) today I bought 2 boxes of wraith guard. One will be armed with d-scythes and the other probably with wraith blades. This will be 20 wraith guard then but I'm not sure how old ones will look with them so may get one more box

August complete in the nick of time :)

Went for less gem painting this time as the last lot seemed a bit over kill.
I found it's the old pot of shade which is causing the colour difference so it's been thrown away now.
Image

So took a picture of the Eldar section of my army that has been painted so far excluding the corsair allies. I really need to write a new 1850 list up under the new rules but I know with the allies I'm well over that any way so technically I'm finished. Realised after taking this picture I left the rangers out. They are so sneaky they are hiding in shot lol.

So Septembers commitment. Unit of wraith blades. Have built the unit last week, just need to fix one guys hand that fell off.
This is the last unit I need to do and I've completed the hobby challenge. I want to get these done asap as I may be moving soon and everything needing to be boxed up.

OK this is very fustrating. It's halfway though the month and I havn't started on my final unit yet as it's been raining everytime i've wanted to go outside to spray them. This is really fustrating! Suppose I should spend this time condensing what i've already painted down into an 1850 list.

Well it's challenge complete! I completed my last squad.

Had issues with the spray. Used GW to give it another chance (my usual is army painter). It was shocking, spray pooled or died horrible. I wanted to dirty these up a bit as they are CC. Built one with half and arm but in a pose still menacingly walking forwards.
So here they are:

I still can't decide what is the right level of gems to paint. It looks too polker dot when they are all one. My colour differance I was getting with the shades and glazes was definatly from the residue at the bottom of the pot. My local GW manager showed me the same problem he had as one arm of his Imperial Fist's dreads is dark

Cheers mate, I will try and get one tonight of everything. Everything comes to around 2000pts. I like to think of it as an 1850 pool to dip into lol.

Now I can concentrate on my Heresy White Scars all the time.
