Its a blue Visarch bonanza! Looking great Magenb... the highlights are really nice and the gold, the fur and the color of the blade are really nice accents. I wish I had this model... and the rest of the triumvirate.... Anyway looking good, keep it up!

Great looking model Magenb. The armour is brilliant - a very good colour; very rich and finished well. I also would consider adding a thin white edge highlight on the sword, just to make it pop am little bit.

All these Visarchs has me hankering to get mine built!!

Thanks guys

Brilliant colors! Just love the effect. Only critique from me is the sword, maybe a strong white highlight on the tip and edges, but that's just me.

yeah a few things are not showing up very well in the photos, like the sword edges and the glowing eyes, maybe I was just too subtle or something.

Its a blue Visarch bonanza!
My Visarch and Yncarne both have blue armours to fit in with the rest of my Eldar. Yvraine's just got some tweaks.

Oh-my-giddy-aunt!
Just finished going through the whole five pages. Artistically challenged? Horse pucky! Really enjoyed viewing this, Magenb. I could see the improvement in both painting and kitbashing from picture to picture. Really like the blue and gold. The swooping hawk view of your skimmers showed an Egyptian vibe with those two colours. Thanks for sharing, mate... Be well!

I love how you choose to do a rainbow myriad of colours for the gemstones in the cloak. It's like a smorgasbord of little space elf souls!

Thanks guys.

Never considered an Egyptian angle before, but yeah I can see it now matches up. Might need to take a longer look to see if there's any more inspiration there.



A smorgasbord huh, Taste the rainbow! Eldar soul stones just like skittles :)

Really like the Visarch Magenb, you've done justice to a nice model. Love the red cloak, does a great job contrasting against the blue.

So had an Apoc game today, thankfully no one was a rules nazi, just more about having fun, with that in mind Eldar managed to get some Necron and Ork meat shields :). I thought I might have been able to do a batrep on it, but we had limited time per turn and I didn't have enough to roll everything off let alone record it all down.

I'll drop a link to the imgur Album rather than posting each image, once I've been able to upload every thing.

Silly amounts of points on the table, every with all the templates and heavy guns (sooo many big guns) and sooo many reserves couldn't really kill each other fast enough. Infantry really couldn't get up the board fast enough, or they were to fast and were just vaporised as nothing else was in range. I think I might actually field my vampire next time as soo many points just didn't reach anything.



And here are the promised pics :)

Niiiiice Magenb!
Bit of a licorice all sorts there, mate... Hope he lands right. Could be an uncomfortable battle for him if he doesn't.
