Holy @%$*#! Your harli's look freakin' amazing. So you just sit around and think, hmm, what can I do to make everyone look like amatuers? You accomplished that. They are the top shelf for sure.

The Harlies look great, its a really nice colour scheme and I'm a sucker for an army wide shot :)

Space puppies look great too even if there is a traitor Eldar in the mix ;)

Man I love the colour scheme of your Harlies and it is the complete opposite of your previously darker scheme. I take it that you had to strip the old colours off first rather than you just paint over it.

Does the rosette on the front of the display mean that your Harlies won something for you.

Everything you have shown us fantastic, but my favourite bit is the base of the Yncarne.

Also, painted up a Leman Russ my clubmates bought me as an engagement gift.

Congratulations on your engagement.

Excellent work, Killersquid! It does this heart good to see the Aeldari so ascendant in your work and thread! What's next on the paint list for you? :) Love the Harlequins by the way, shows you don't need to pull off the checker pattern to really make them work :).

I did a bit of a checker on them, mostly so I would need to pull my hair out a bit while working on them! My goal is to finished my painting list (half of indomitus, a bunch of space wolves, 60 clan-rats), and then build a small Ynnari detachment of craftworlds and Drukhari to run alongside the harlequins. Already bought a set of Incuibi and Banshees to start.

Thank you!

lol, it's not that way. Most of it is just contrast paint and highlights. I made sure to make it something I could prunch through quickly.

Thanks! The demonfuige duo are just too cool, I needed to paint them. Don't expect they'll ever get on the table though!

Yeah, I spent a lot of time soaking them in simple green and re-building them. Gave me a good opportunity to replace broken parts and make the whole army look cohesive, instead of an army painted slightly differently over the course of the past 4/5 years.

I really like having a bright scheme, and wanted to do most of it with contrast paint (which leads to brighter looking armies!)

The little thing on the board, is just a trinket I picked up at a tournament years ago, doesn't mean anything though!

The basing is pretty easy. Most of it is done with a moss kit I picked up from the arts and crafts section at Walmart, and water effects and grass from a scenic kit at Michael's.

Thanks for the kind words about the engagement. Once she agreed for me to get a second display cabinet, I knew she was worth keeping :D

Hi folks, took some decent pictures of some of my Harlequins with a real camera and wanted to share.

Thanks for Looking.

I think you've done a wonderful job of painting likely the most difficult-to-paint army in the entire GW range, LoWaW!

Love that you highlighted even the checker patterns!

Also the Ynnari HQ's look extremely good!

Nice! I really like your shadowseer conversion. I used her for one of mine too.

they look great, well done. The checker pattern instead of diamonds is a nice touch.

Thanks! The highlighting killed me a bit, as it's so tedious, but I'm glad it payed off!

It's a great model! I couldn't help myself when I saw one on the shelf at my local Warhammer shop.
