Just a quick update, albeit with a small tutorial. As you can see, I started painting the armour. On the three models above you can see every step. First model – basecoat with VGC Dark Fleshtone, wash with Badab Black. Make sure you don’t let the wash pool on the flat areas by pushing it into the recesses with your brush where necessary. 2nd model – highlight with Dark Fleshtone again. Third model – apply sharp highlights of Vermin brown.
I’m using the same recipe here I used for the leather on my other Eldar models. More of my painting techniques can be found in my Eldar Guardians tutorial. By repeating the same colours on different areas you can make an army look more cohesive, even if it has as many different looking units as an typical Eldar army.
