Congrats on the temporary promotion and nudging towards a real one :) it's a bit of a bummer you didn't get the job, but it seems to have had a positive effect which is great :)

'Setting a theme and making whatever we can out of our bitzbox for it' sounds like a phenomenal idea for a monthly bitzbox/scrapyard challenge :) I'd be well up for that :) I wonder how many takers we'd have...

Raven Guard's looking kickass btw :)

Alas not a clue on the Yncarne front, although it would definitely look sweet in your Corsair colours :)

Super nice work as always Auric. I just love the look of your Ravenguard. The lenses... super dark green trim and purity seals just look so awesome on them. The ultra dark highlights look fantastic. As you know I'm a huge fan of your highlighting approach with these guys. Without even seeing their chapter badge you know they are Ravenguard as soon as you look at them.

Way to go having all the special weapon options painted up. I think that is a HUGE upgrade to your collection overall and really cements your dedication to the army. Nice job.

Hmmmm I think the purple on the Yncarne would look fantastic. It'd fit into your Corsairs but still stand out. I vote purple!

Also congrats on the temp. promotion. Stinks you didn't get the big one, but hey more money? Gotta be happy about that!  ;D ;D ;D

Really nice work on the Raven Guard AP. Totally looking forward to seeing the work that you do on the Yncarne too. Do you think you'll be using the airbrush on her/him/it, or just brush work? Either way, post when you have something!

Sorry to hear you didn't get the job, but at least you got some recognition and a bit more cash. Hopefully you'll be a shoe in for the next job that comes up.

Thanks guys!
I am pretty chuffed about getting the temp promotion and being 2nd on the merit list is no issue as I will stay on it for a year, probably going to have spots open up in that time.

@Ynnead- Maybe we'll have to start something up? Maybe a theme per month and everyone builds and paints then votes at the end of the month? Would be interesting!

@Cav- Cheers bud, as always means a lot coming from you! I am starting to really get the techniques dialled in for the Raven Guard, can paint up a unit fairly quickly now.
I am leaning towards the purple for the Yncarne, tough to decide though!

@Looshkin- pretty sure it'll be a combination of Airbrush and Normal brushwork, if I go purple then it'll probably be using the same techniques that I used for the Slaaneshi Knight

Afternoon all!
Since I know you guys love a few WIP shots, I have started painting the Yncarne.....

Decided on going with the purple and blue scheme that is fairly prevalent, it does seem to work very well with the almost Slaaneshi feel of the model.

So far it's looking something like this:



I'm not happy with the hair as it meets the models head as the drybrushing is too obvious so I am going to need to work out how to touch that up but otherwise all going good so far.

That's looking amazing so far AP!. Just wow! The graduation of colour across the swirl is lovely. I really think it adds an amazing supernatural feel to the model. Brilliant colour transitions and a wonderful colour scheme.

Pat yourself on the back good Sir!

Is there any difference other than the light source between the two pictures? I ask because I really prefer the darker look of the colours in the first picture.

@Looshkin- Cheers bud, I wanted to do it a little different so went for the multi-coloured swirls rather than just many shades of one colour.

@Alienscar- The first photo was taken outside in natural light and the second one was taken with a normal desk lamp. I agree that it looks better in natural light.

So also not so much WIP, I've been a tad more productive than I expected......

Got a few little bits to tidy up and that I might want to change but it's near enough finished!  ;D

Damn that looks good, and I'm someone who doesn't really like the official scheme (less the Slaaneshi purple as I think that's a neat fluff reference, but that the whole thing look busy).

I think the fact that you've made it quite a bit darker than the AoS-neon of the official scheme is really nice :) plus, the way it's got the purple interspersed in with the bluee makes the whole thing look more cohesive rather than just 'here's a guy surrounded by blue gak'. It actually looks like one could be made out of the other :)

Well done!

Wow... looking awesome AP! I love the color scheme... the patterning of the colors really makes it look like its coalescing or materializing in realspace. Fantastic job!

Looking superb! Love the colour choices. I was also wondering about the colour change in the first two photos, as I totally thought the paint scheme changed. Just goes to show you how much lighting can mess around with a photo.

Thanks for all the comments guys!
I really enjoyed painting the Yncarne, it's a very nice if slightly fiddly model!

I feel bad for not providing much of an update recently although if I am honest I've not really done much painting or building recently. I think a lot of the rumours for 8th have got me very wary in buying/building anything atm.
I have been painting up some of my old Wraithguard though so here is a WIP shot from my D-Scythe unit that I've been working on this morning.

WOW! Incredible paint job Ynnead. I totally love it... So freaking ghostly... Totally captures the haunting ethereal, space wandering vibe of the Craftworld.... Totally love it man. I wouldn't change anything. Nailed it 100%

Also I hear you on buying new units... I'm pretty sure Chaos is gonna kick off 8th edition with some new CSM's and Berserkers... so I'm holding off for now too.

Just gonna finish what I Have and see what the new edition brings...

Anyway great work on the Wraithguard man. They look sick

They all look Micky Mouse, Aurics Pride. For a beginner on the airbrush, mate, you wield it extremely well. Your colour choices are spot on. Looking forward to seeing the squadrons completed and on display. Are you using the same colours for the aspects and such or sticking to their original scheme?

Looked into the Corsairs a few years ago, but figured I could buy more craftworld Eldar with the money that would be spent on the Corsair up grade packs. Can't deny though they are amazing looking models and you and Cavalier do them justice... See you in the threads, pointy ears!

The last post was written only after looking at the first page. Then noticed there were more. Wow! they look magic all together.

Thanks guys! Got a bit more work to do on them but they were shelved temporarily while I spent most of the day doing this:



So I wanted a bit less of a Dark Eldar feel to my Visarch, I think I managed to achieve this with a really simple head swap (From the Guardian sprue).
I did however make a silly mistake..... The two things that I really can't do when painting is painting white and painting cloaks...... So why I decided to do a white cloak I have no idea!!
Also tried out a new technique on the sword using the airbrush, I think it went fairly well although the picture doesn't really show it all that well.
Apologies for the mobile phone picture, my Camera is unavailable at the moment.

Fantastic work dude :) i really love the wraithguard, and congrats on finding a really nice use for that Guardian head! I've never liked it so i've got boatloads of them, but it really works with black hair on the Visarch :)
