Maugan'Ra is coming along excellently. You've got a nice colour palette and you're nailing the pain job. I really like the blade on the Maugetar and the bones are very realistic. Top job!

Wow, mega update Mage! The Tau look clean and great, as do the noble Elves. The new Eldar are looking brilliant; you have such a tight colour scheme which ties all the elements together superbly.

Those T'au Empire battle-suits look amazing - you managed to get the white so smooth, love how they turned out!

High Elves looking good, always love seeing some Dragon Princes, favorite High Elven unit right there.

Eldar are progressing well, smooth colors you've gotten on them.

Keep it up!

The blue is looking very good and you've got some impressive models to come.  That scenary is the item that catches my eye the most though.  I really like it.

@magenb: That looks awesome! I like a lot of the details on it - like the eye, gems, etc.

Great work!

Getting back into painting some pointy ear stuff, so this gem will count as silver helms.

I've been looking at these, as i've looked to expand my High Elf lineup... How do they paint up? Detail good? Not too fragile? Smooth? Etc.

Totally forgot to reply to these the first time. Great models, love the paint job on them! Got that traditional Aeldari void pirate feel with your scheme  :).

sorry for the delay. Painting them is fine, there is a good amount of detail, but some areas like the faces remind me a bit of GW's early high elf stuff. How fragile... well it depends on what they are printed with, sadly in my area my options are basically affordable resin with a jump to I may as well just buy GW stuff lol. Europe and US get a lot more option on the affordable scale of resins.

Given elves have some very thin parts, like their long spears, these tend to catch and snap. slightly thick stuff like bows, may not survive a drop. That said, a lot of new gw sculpts these days will have the same problem (nighthaunts lol). Anything more solid like the horse, then its only slightly more fragile, I've had GW horse tails break from being dropped, etc.

If you can get hold of the right type of resin then it can be just as good if not better than GW stuff.

I really like the cloaks.  There are some great textures and colours on show here.
