ok, I think I'm finally done with my spiritseer. I added the warpvane to the back, removed the head from the body again, put it back on, decided the hair needed to be redone so I got all that off (and broke off the head in the process), put the head back on, and started sculpting again. Suffice to say, it took a while.
So, this is where she stands now, and it's up to my painting skills to make it look good:
I hope better lighting will help as well
A shot of the warpvane, which is hard to see due to the lighting. Also some more impressions of the hair:
As stated before, I tried to keep the hair in the same flow as the robes and the cloth on the spear, so it wouldn't detract from the overall lines of the model. This made me cover up the face a bit more than I'd wanted to, but I can't have everything I guess.
I'm currently keeping myself busy with building some guardians as well. They're beautiful models and a nice kit, though there were two parts in it that I had some difficulty with identifying/imagining a purpose for. Perhaps people who've collected eldar for a longer time know these parts from elsewhere and know what they are?
Specifically the two circled parts in this image:
I reckon the left part is a camera or sensor array to be placed upon one of those shoulder-mounts from the guardian's backpacks, but the right one... I don't know. Do I need to fit it on top of a weapon as a rangefinder, is it some kind of binoculars? Some kind of bomb?
Speaking of bombs, those conical devices that hang from the belts seen here in the left of the image, I think they're the guardian's plasma grenades. Am I right?
