Thanks guys :)

Cavalier--the hybrids do have a certain charm but the helmets don't have any detail--so weird that you can just see where they've used a sculpting tool to roughly make an eye shape in the helmet and go "meh, you get the idea" ;)

And thanks, the yellow is in intimidating (and so easy to make mistakes onto when doing nearby colours) but I think it's worth it in the end. I appreciate your kind words as always!

Probably not clear from the photo but they're all chainmail guardians! I've got some of the one piece lasgun and shurcat defenders that I'm going to sneak in to that squad.

And fair enough SeekingOne, though at least they're better than the old mono-pose plastics!

Just a little update...



My dire avenger exarch on the left, was the first model I painted for this army and I was experimenting with a metallic technique. I liked it but decided not to do all the avengers like that, I think it suits the exarxh to be a little different.

Then the normal avengers in progress. Love these models. Maybe not so much the lunging guy, but the rest look so stoic.

Then my scorpion exarch. Much bigger than the others and doesnít fit in super well, but you get the idea and I donít want to chop up one of the original ones to give him a power claw.

And the Hordes model Rask. Iím doing a little force for this game and I thought itíd be cool to paint something a bit more organic amongst the high tech eldar. Plus Iíve liked these models for ages and wanted to give them the cartoony swamp monster look.

Avengers not far away, then Iíve only got a wraithlord to paint and Iíve got 1000 points to play with.

G'day Orange!
Really like the metallic blueish hue on the Exarch, mate. Very nice indeed. Really keen to see your models on the table. They're going to look magic in play... Pointy ears forever!!

Outstanding work on the Dire Avengers.  The Exarch having a slightly different colour scheme is again reminiscent of the painting style of the Rogue Trader and second edition eras, and it works so well with the original Aspect models.

Oh man just phenomenal work as usual Orange. Can't say enough how much I like your style. The Avenger Exarch is a thing of beauty... one of the all time great Eldar sculpts. Also the cool Lizard guy looks great. He'd make a great counts-as Sslyth if you ever wanted to add a little Dark Eldar flavor to your army... some Sslyth mercenaries would look great. Anyway great stuff man. Just love everything about this project.
