HPC2015: ESE's' Iybraesil Eldar, Eldar, and more Eldar

Post by Evil Space Elves » Sun Jan 25, 2015 3:08 pm

Had a blast last year painting 5,500+ points of 30K World Eaters, thought I'd turn to my namesake for the 2015 Challenge and paint up the TONS of CWE, Corsairs, and remaining Dark Eldar that I've amassed over the years. Aside from some of the standard stuff (Wave Serpents, Jetbikes, Wraith things, etc) I've also got a few superheavies that might slip in here.

First up for February is a Spiritseer:

Hope to crank it out by Tuesday night. I'll probably scale up from this model and paint Guardians followed Jetbikes, Wraithguard/Blades, Wraitlords, a Wraithknight, through larger vehicles. this army has sat in my Closet of Unpainted Shame for a while and will get used in a Highlander league that I'll be running this Spring. :twisted:

Okay, had a really crappy hockey game and needed to get in some paint therapy tonight. It's 85% done, just need to complete the hair, skin, eyes, and paint the runic designs on the robe and it's done :twisted:

I'll have to assemble a unit of Guardians next if the ones that I'm stripping still refuse to be ready :evil:

This is looks really good. The magenta spirit stones look good against the blue and thd orange stones add good variety. are you going to continue the NMM through the entire force?

Thanks. Those are metallics BTW. Can't bring myself to ever pulling off NMM.

Oh my word. This has nothing to do with what I've painted, but EVERYTHING to do with what I'll be painting in the near future!

If those aren't NMM then I am even more jealous of your mad skillz.

And yes, the laughing God will soon be laughing at a lot of people's bank statements.

As a big fan of Eldar of all kinds and of your world eaters from last year I'm going to be following this thread closely. That trailer has me re-thinking all my current hobby goals.

Thanks guys. It's going to be REALLY hard to stay on track with Harlequins getting sexy new models, but these CWE have been haunting the Unpainted Closet of Shame for years now.

Finished up the Spiritseer tonight. Should've been done with this thing Monday night, but tonight was the first chance that I'd had to paint at all this week.

I'm goingto paint either some old Wraithguard or a unit of Guardians next :twisted:

I really like the freehand rune on the front of the robes. Very slick. Other than that I don't think my painting skillz are high enough for me to comment on this great model.

As far as those Harlequins are concerned. http://f1.bcbits.com/img/a4054412355_10.jpg
