I agree. I believe you got your scheme on point now.

I'm in agreement with the others! Looks awesome, Mage!

Thanks everyone, will try scrubbing the hull and redoing, but in the mean time.
I pulled out a wraithblade that was a rush job just to get it on the table. Gave it some wash and edging, but it does not seem to show up on the camera very well. Was also an excuse to try out new bashing.

Great looking Wraithguard, Mage. Loving the color scheme, really sleek and not too complicated, unlike what I tend to go for and screw up often lol ;D.

The basing came out fantastic!

If you soak it in simple green a few days you'll be able to use an old tooth brush or a soft brush of some kind to scrub it off. I agree with Myen'Tal, the wraith looks good. If you'd like, you could use a blue wash to add some depth to the joints but not necessary, looks good as is.

I dunno, it looks a little rocky to me, haha! Seriously though, I love it and the bottom pics dynamics are off the wall cool.ZOOOOM 8) Wish I'd thought of that when I did mine, crazy cool bud!

That is what I like to call 'exemplar' basing, it's out of this world! :)

Your bases are killer Mage! I love them. I think the Wraithguard base is my favourite, but the flyer base is creative and looks terrific. I like that you've hidden the flying stand completely, it makes the model look far more dynamic.

Keep it up dude!

Thanks Guys,

While I think about the rest of the black space for the drew-carry flier, I'm tinkering with some basing designs for my craftworld fliers. I'm thinking the pillars will end up tilted (which is why they have been squared out) and broken down a bit as they are too tall at the moment. The ground will be broken up and made less even.

Amazing work, Mage! Love that base design on the right! Looks great!

Now those are super cool! Great idea, great to see. A little weeds growing at the base maybe?

Yeah the idea will be cracking them up and putting grass and stuff growing out of them.

The sand here is the wrong colour, should be more of a dirty brown I think , but basically I would be looking to do something similar on the flying bases.




The well/fountain broke when I tried to remove the steel support, the big stones slabs wasn't very Eldar like any way, so more tinkering on that one.

Either way it'll look great. The base doesn't have to look like eldar, it can have "we're coming to take away your world" look, you know what I mean. I think the well is a great idea looks wise, but that's just me. Sorry it broke. Your bases are always impressive btw.

If you dab on a little Agrax Earthshade, that'll recolour the sand nicely. I used that technique a lot with my minis before I changed to some of the GW basing materials. You can always then dry brush the sand after for real depth of colour.

Since GW has put Eldar ruins as part of all the new mini's (Harlies, Banshee's, Incubi, Eldrad) bases, I'm trying to keep the theme going.

I'm tinkering with other bits to try and make a fountain instead of a well, just need to get hold of some more clay. Really liking the airdry clay too, its not a sticky as polyclay and since you don't have to bake it, I can apply it directly to other things.

If you dab on a little Agrax Earthshade, that'll recolour the sand nicely.

That's a great idea, it should be minimal cleanup if any gets on the detailed ground.

Looks out Dread, they're coming for Draz ;)

These ladies have been on my slow build cycle, probably end up a bit lighter when finished, but I found another simple way to do swords that I'm enjoying.

Wow! They're looking really nice. I never thought about gold on the shuriken pistols, that really looks good. On top of the fact that Drazhar needs a harem  (whistling ::)).
