So, my brother decided he wants to get back into the hobby with his Aspect heavy Biel-Tan Eldar - only problem is, he despises playing with non-painted miniatures, and he hates painting. So, what does a good younger brother do - I offer to paint his army for him as a comission Smile

So far i've only done a test mini for him, a Guardian on which i did a test-scheme for his Dire Avengers:

(Ignore the fact that the lower body isnt painted - and the vents on their backs wont actually be green, it was just a convenient way to show how the green bits would end up looking)

I hope to have his first 10 Dire Avengers done by the end of the coming week, and then we'll see what he wants done next - but the future will bring Wave Serpents, War Walkers, Banshees, Fire Dragons and Shining Spears to my painting table

Ok, first real update - i got the Avengers put together, slapped some basing material on them, and got them primed. I also made 3 Objective markers with the statues from the Avenger kit, and a small pylon from the High Elf dragon kit:

Looks good, I think, though it's a little hard to tell when it's... well, so little. But it will be interesting to see how the actual models will look.

I rather like the highlight work on the gems - I may steal doing that for my statues, I'd been doing them as all carved stone/bone and the idea of adding the bling there really helps them pop.

Here's the finished Dire Avenger Exarch - sorry for the slightly blurry picture, but it should show the miniature off quite well - soon, ill have the whole 10-man unit done

Simple, beautifully painted scheme.

Thanks, though i must admit, the white is killing me - i've never been so frustrated over how hard it is to paint a certain colour before, but white... Luckily, i haven't had that many problems with it on large surfaces as i have on the small ones on infantry (weird, right?), as the only things that are gonna be in the "true" Biel Tan scheme, is gonna be the 3+ Serpents, 2-3 War Walkers, Wraithlord and Falcon

Anyways, as a reminder, the army will mainly be painted as a just-above table-top quality, nothing REALLY fancy, but still with some neat stuff mixed in (he's requesting that i try doing the thorny freehand patterns in his Serpents, for example)
