Hey guys, the buildings for my display board are finished, so I went back at painting Eldar. Next up is a Forge World Avatar, and damn, he’s a gorgeous sculpt. I love this model since it was released and I’m happy to finally add one to my collection. It’s also a very fragile model, I managed to snap off the ear ring, several hair strands, the fin on the shoulder and a finger, just by toppling the model over. I was able to repair everything but the ear ring. Sad face.
Painting-wise, I thought of doing something different than the usual lava paint scheme. So I went for something… pink. What do you think? 😀

Interesting: I'm very curious to see all the steps and the final results, surely it is not going to be banal!
That looks awesome! What other colours are you going to use? (The yellow masking tape goes quite well)
Turquoise, to match the main colour of my craftworld and for a nice 80s vibe! 😉
I look forward to the updates, I reckon it'll be good!

Like the pink, particularly with the yellowish masking paper, though the lava version is of course classic. On first glance I thought you had given him a bucket helm and now I kinda want to see that happen.^^
It seem odd to me that a model at least partially designed to be used in games is so fragile.
Also: Brings back memories of that one teacher who would put paper bags over the heads of students he considered too ugly to endure looking at.
