As promised yesterday, I finished the first batch of Fire Dragons today! Well, the white helmets didn’t turn out that great, need to take more care when painting white next time. Apart from that, what do you think? I’m quite pleased with the paint scheme, should blend nicely into my other Eldar models.

Very nice work, I think the white is pretty smooth so I wouldn't worry too much about it. The reds are very rich. =O)
What about a rune or so on the front of the helmets?

Hey, the armour scheme sounds deceptivly simple, is that all there is to it?! Hows does VGC Dark Fleshtone compare to GW dark flesh? Looking awesome. rev
Think they look awesome, what dont you like about the helmets? can I ask how you painted the eyes and gems?
For this army I decided only to paint mounted jewels as gems, I mean they aren't display models.

Well the white looks only smooth in the pictures…
I decided to keep all helmets bare white for all models in my army.
Yeah it's that simple. Dark Fleshtone is slightly brighter as Dark Flesh but you could easily substitute one for another and you wouldn't be able to tell.

te lack of gems on the helmet are a bit of a disappointment I know your very capable of doing those properly. besides that detail it´s a great job, crisp and clean paintjob!
