Summary: <p class="heading">Timmsy</p> <p class="subheader1">You may remember this feature modeler from his jetbike found in our gallery. Now you're in for a treat. Timmsy here has submitted us quite a few quality photos from his warhost for your viewing pleasure.</p>

<p class="subheader1">Name:</p> <p class="subheader1">Timmsy</p>
<p class="subheader1">From:</p> <p class="subheader1">Adelaide, South Australia</p>
<p class="subheader1">Play:</p> <p class="subheader1">WHFB, WH40K, WH Quest</p>
<p class="subheader1">Eldar Army:</p> <p class="body">Based on a Biel Tan Swordwind host but I have called them the Burning Hand, host of Ayudyha, hence the paintjobs. It is a small, mobile force with no craftworld to call home. The Warlock on jetbike, Monthien, is the sole survivor of a Saim Hann host that was wiped out. Monthien was saved by Ayudyha and has sworn an oath of service, hence the Biel Tan style amour on his legs, but the Saim Hann helmet and banner.  The two Warlocks are Ratana (witch blade), and Taksin (Singing Spear) and the Wraithlord contains the spirit of Uposatha.</p>

<p class="body">The Army is still under progress, what army isn't, with a unit of seven banshees nearly finished (I have included one photo), 5 reapers, a falcon, a wave serpent and an Avatar.</p>

<p class="subheader1">Painting:</p> <p class="body">I undercoat white with an airbrush, and then another two or three coats for the guardians. The undersuit was painted on with Dark Angels green and a thin brush.   I have painted around 6500pts of Orcs for WHFB so green is definitely something I'm used to. For the scorpions it was scorpion green, green wash, then scorpion green again with sunburst yellow added in stages to the scorpion green for highlights.</p>

<p class="body">The warp spiders took the longest, red gore being washed with chestnut wash, then highlighted up through blood red to orange and yellow at the tips.  The vehicles were undercoated white, then the carapace/body was sprayed British Racing green. Once dry, the flames were hand drawn on with a soft sharp HB pencil. The entire area was then painted white and blended through yellow to bright orange.</p>
<p class="body">Overall I have kept the palette of colours fairly small to keep a coherent feel to the Army. The only major deviations from green/white-green/tan-bright green/green are the warp spiders, but I wanted them to stand out.</p>

<p class="subheader1">40kOnline would like to thank Timmsy for such a wonderful display of craftsmanship.  We eagerly look forward to seeing some more of this craftworld.</p>
