Yeah I hope to pretty good when I reach that amount of painting my hand isn't that steady but I still manage to clean things up I notice mistakes if you wish to call them that I would have notice years ago when I first started and the ultramarines I painted back then we not bad I would say near ish table top ready but nothing special I would not get people coming up to the gaming table I played at saying things like they do now "your eldars scheme is really striking I love it"

I just read over your thread, and I wont be the first to say I like the scheme, very striking. Reminds me of the Tyranid hive fleet that has the white and purple scheme. The paintjob is clean and smooth, a style I am quite fond of, though, the war spider did look a tad off with the brown wash. If you are painting white, and want a shaded, but not dirty look; I'd stick with a black wash instead.

Well, to be honest, I'd never wash white of I want it to look clean... But, if you insist on using it, I suggest that you go over the most prominent areas again with the white after the wash.

I used it to help keep the lines clean (if that makes sense) but to be honest there are areas I will be going over I am at a stage now where I will just be tidying everything I have painted thus far. I will leave the wash in areas there should be shadows but of course blending or something as it really does not need to be so thick a line.

I have a squad of five dire avengers I painted ages ago that clearly need this and as you said going over with white and or a lightend boneskull white mix.

So the next few weeks will just be tidying what I have painted.

Guys and gals, just a quick update, I am working on four falcons at the moment I am happy with the dark reapers as they are will work on highlights another time... but yeah four falcons - magnetizing them all at the moment so the turrets and weapons and a few other bits can be swapped and will buy some wave serpent turrets. So when I am not playing apoch or spearhead games they can be wave serpents... will post pictures when I am back from Italy (gonna be away for about two weeks)

Hi,

Things have been on and off with painting (you know when you get that feeling you just don't want to paint and you can't get motivated?) well that how its been :(

here are some photos of where I am at, I have an airbrush now and its working out ok now I sort of know how thin the paint has to be

Image

Image

Image

Image

On of the main reasons I took so long is I was magnetizing stuff and trying to figure out how best to do it - I have read loads of sites on how to do it but for example one guy drills a hole in the side of the falcon and then seats the magnet physically into the plastic hull then green stuffs and sands.... erm ok why not just glue the magnet on the inside of the hull :P ?

I love the colour scheme! What shade of purple is that? It looks like GW's warlock purple in some pics.

Hi there sorry for the late reply, it's hormagaunt purple as a base coat then warlock purple over the top. The reason i used the darker foundation paint is I wanted a darker purple, where as just over the white basecoat I use it came out pink which I didnt want.
