Thanks Dread, paint hasn't realy been flying lately due to the weather and videogames, but I'm sure I'll get back into the swing of things soon enough. If I had went with a custom craftworld I would still be painting guardians in test schemes.. it takes me forever to come up with something I like. I might design a craftworld for these guys at some point (mainly because I don't like the Iybreasil rune all that much) but I quite like to colours. It's going to be a bit of challenge to tie in some of the aspects in with the rest of the army, but I'll work that out when I get there.

@mage: I'm using diametrically polarized(?) magnets and they do a good job keeping the guns from drooping, but there is a bit of room around the magnet and the original mounting point:




This causes it to sit a little crooked unless you mush the magnets, on the turret and gunshield, into the slot. It can be done, but than I risk breaking the magnets of when swithing weapons. A tiny bit of putty should allow the magnets to sit flush whilst still having enough 'pull' to keep everything in place. I ordered some thicker (3mm as opposed to the 2mm I'm using now) magnets for future vehicles, and those will fill up more of the hole and (hopefully) eliminate the problem.

Progress!



It is starting to look like an (very small) army.

Awesome start, Nutty!!!

Loving the cohesive look you've achieved across your forces so far.

Are you looking forward to any new eldar models in Phoenix Rising?

 8) great stuff Nutty. Color choice is spot on. You've got a great start, looking forward to more.

yeah I got into Eldar just in time for the new goodies :)
I'm looking forward to new models; it would be cool to see some updates in the range, I do like most of the aspect warriors we have but some are starting to show their age.

Untill they do I'll just keep chipping away at my current pile. I'm working on some rangers now; I came across a box of 5 for a good price.. so I couldn't resist.
