Today I can present you my finished female Autarch conversion, painted for my Craftworld Iybraesil collection. It wasn’t an easy conversion, putting my limited green stuff skill to the test, but despite some slightly rough spots, I’m pretty happy with how she turned out. Check out more pictures after the jump.
The model is based on the plastic Autarch model that was released along with the 7th Edition Craftworlds codex. The head and arms are from the classic Finecast Eldar/Aeldari Autarch models. I think they make for a great alternate pose.
The female shapes are sculpted with green stuff. For the right side, I carefully sliced off the brooch on the chest and put a little bit of green stuff underneath, then filled the gaps and extended the straps. Last but not least, I also shaved down the crotch a little bit 😉
Painting-wise, I added some cues to the paint schemes of my Aspect Warriors. Like my Banshees, here right shoulder guard is bronze, while the crests are turquoise and yellow like on my Dire Avengers. The award for the most boring thing to paint goes to the wings. They are also super pointy so the paint rubs off easily from those “feather” tips. I guess I’ll never paint a squad of Swooping Hawks, even if they might get new models some day.

I really like this.
It doesn't immediately read as female (though on closer inspection it obviously is), but you are limited by the silhouette. I suppose there is often a level of ambiguity with Eldar anyway.
The model itself works great as a whole and the conversion is seamless.
