Ignoring the fact that the army being showcased is amazing, is anyone else annoyed that the Dark Eldar have been reduced to "the other eldar?"

Can't say I'm really seething with rage over it tbh.

I think the title is clearly tongue in cheek - the article goes on to explain how everything recently has been Eldar, Eldar, Eldar but of course there are other Eldar.... us.

Again it's all very tongue in cheek and as all of their articles are, subtle advertisements for models for you to buy.

Not a fan of the models shown. Wonderful in terms of quality of painting etc but they just don't do it for me. Look too...Nurgle-like!

I couldn't agree more, it's almost as though the painter has no affinity with the mood and character of the models and their background, despite their obvious talent in the painting department.

Props to the guy, Marc Giacco, that is an amazing army. Don't mind the scheme at all.

Right on, Gob. Props indeed. I wish I had MY whole army painted to that caliber..(or even all painted). Paint schemes are to each his own.

Don't get me wrong. I wish I could paint like that! I just don't like the colour scheme and that is purely subjective.

I have to agree with you guys. It is amazing painting but the color scheme reeks of those hippie exodite eldar.

Reminds me a bit of the kabal of the drowned gardens I saw on DakkaDakka. Not what I'd choose at all but both very good.

I thought of that too, but the green base colors used make the entire scheme very Nurgle-like. Had he chosen a different color to go with besides "Oh dear Lord how can a baby make something that color? And make so much of it?" nobody would've made the association.
