Oh, my!
Genius, Magenb. Absolute genius. Looks to be very tedious as well. Looking good, mate. Well done!

yeah I'll probably redo it at some stage and the gap between are a bit too thick. need more practise in getting those diamonds more consistent to match, but the holograph diamonds add a bit of disco flair lol.

Awesome idea for a base :) reflective pearlescent stuff is a real rarity in 40k modelling so it really stands out :)

Great idea for a base magenb and a terrific result. I've not seen anyone do this type of basing before, but I think it should work really well across an army.

G'day, Magenb!
Need some advice on the Eldar buildings. Does the GW undercoat work on the woods used for these? Or do I have to invest in some Dulux?

I don't know if they work on wood. I used rust-oleum primer as I had some handy, seemed to work, but its the first time I painted mdf. I've since read up on painting MDF and they recommend using something to seal it first, then use a primer... so I err messed up there lol.

G'day, Magenb!
Have asked around here and a couple of folk say GW undercoat will seal it just fine. Will give that a crack and it doesn't work, people will owe me money.

Thanks for your input, mate... Pointy ears forever!!

Hey Magenb, are they made out of balsa wood? If so, you really want to stay away from really wet sealers or primers. It soaks it up to much and can warp. In the past I made warhammer ships with popsicle sticks and balsa wood. The best thing I found was automotive spray primer.when I used regular primer the wood would warp but with the auto one it seamed to dry faster and not absorb but you have to mist it,not a one pass thing. Mist it on, let it set for about 10 minutes then mist it again and repeat once more. It worked great for me. Hope this helps. Also might look into Kilz at a hardware store or comparative brand made for wood work.

Thanks Dread.

The primer I used didn't swell or warp anything, I just don't think it sealed it correctly. I've read that you can use oil based primers to seal it too, so that might be what's happening with the auto-primer.

Automotive primers are usually cellulose-based if they're rattle cans so they should work well :)

So ended up getting a bunch of gift certificates for xmas and birthday, so ended up getting some Reapers and Swooping Hawks. I really don't like finecast, I think if I want any more reapers I'll try and track down some metal ones, shouldn't need any more hawks, but think I'd be looking to convert something instead. Any one see the daughters of khaine in white dwarf? They looks like they might be good candidates for exodite conversions :) now where did I put that lotto ticket...

Well here's a quick wip shot.

Nice work, Magenb!
Have never met anyone who likes fine cast. Don't know why they still use it if 8th ed is the edition that GW is listening to the clientele. Your right, mate, the Sisters of Khaine look amazing and you would do wonders with them. Keep up the good work, Magenb... Be well!

Nice. I dig the schemes on both of them Mage. Especially the Hawks... really bold and striking. I dig the old school scheme on the Reaper as well. Always thought that shade of blue looked good on them. Also yes. Those new Daughters of Khaine are insane. I've got some plans for those models for sure... I'd love to see what you do with them.

Lovely looking package! :) What's in it?

Loving the Reaper and the Hawk Mage. Old school models and old school colour schemes are always a match made in heaven.

What's in the box? Don't make me start asking like Brad Pitt in Se7en!

Wowzers Mage! That model is terrific! The posing is just great; it's rare to see the psychic nature of the Eldar so well captured by a model's posing, but you've nailed it.

The paint scheme is really strong too, I especially like the blue armour and the golden elements too. Top job.
