I have been very busy with life and work stuff lately so sorry for the lack of posts. I am now back and with a new project. I have been keen on doing an Eldar army since the new book came out, so that's what I have decided for my new army.
So this model is just too cool not to be in my army. It looks great, is toughness 8 with 6 wounds and has the option to take 2 of the best weapons in the game ( until last week when D weapons entered 40k).
Anyway onto some WIP pics...
I wanted to pose the Wraithknight jumping backwards to make it look more agile than the standard standing pose. This was such a pain to get it to balance and took a lot of pinning but I'm pleased with the outcome.
For the paint job I started with an airbrush, layering up from blue to almost white. On the other parts of the armour plating from black through grey to white.
I went for a purple colour for the gems to contrast.
For the helmet I wanted to paint a space with a sort of purplish nebular design.
Well that's it for now, let me know what you think and I will be back soon with an update on the Wraithknight and hopefully some more Eldar stuff.
