Hey guys, after the assembling and basecoating you’ve seen in my last post, I started painting the first batch of three models. So far I’ve painted and highlighted the bodysuits and weapons. Left to do are all the small details and the heads, which I’ve primed seperately in white.
I really love the Eldar Guardian models. The sharpness of the casts can’t match the kits of today, but their design was spectacular when they were released and it still holds up. However I’ve already painted over 20 Guardians for my Saim-Hann army, so having to paint more Guardians is not exactly thrilling, despite my love for the models. Can’t be helped though. How do you like the progress so far?

I'm ridiculously impressed with these, especially the bone-like shuriken-catapults! I'm personally not a big fan of the Guardian-sculpts. The ball-joint arms just make it a real pain to put the models together unless you glue them together before you start painting which in turn makes painting difficult.
However, I painted these up – the first guys I've painted in almost 20 years!
