    Really awesome paintjobs, I'm quite jealous. What colours did you use for the big dark green pieces? Really like the effect of those, they look glowing.

    @NexS1 do I spy some sneaky airbrushing on that Venerable?

    Thanks friend! The green is base coat of caliban green then glaze highlights adding screaming skull (or ushabti bone... Can't remember the name) to the caliban. When all that's been done, including the edge highlights, I hit it with the dark green shade wash making sure to draw the was inward toward the part that's going to be darker :)


    Yes, yes you do. I airbrushed the green on all the salamanders as well as the red armour and white wings of the eldar autarch.
    But it's not sneaky,not at all. The lava bases were 90% airbrush.

    Edit. There is no autarch yet!

    Edit edit. Freehand filigree, we're blend blue/purple Cape, airbrush armour, wings and sword(nmm glass effect on sword as well)

    The paint jobs on these are brilliant! The dark Eldar look incredible! Are they all on snow bases? What did you use for the snow? Looks really good!

    @Crowsfoot I love it. I'm not sure it would be super helpful for fantasy models. It would be awesome for base coating and OSL and probably for heavily armoured guys. Also really good for the new aos models. It's amazing for vehicles so you get smooth paint jobs on large surfaces

    @Bowser The snow is a mix of pva, cheap white paint and bicarb soda. Mix it together until it looks like toothpaste. :)

    These look amazing! :D

    However I have to question the logic in having important green glass thingies sticking out like that :D

    These guys are the 40k equivalent of having a unit of ogres in a dark elf army, except these ogres have more attacks and poison which works differently in 40k (all attacks wound on a 4+. If strength is higher than the defenders toughness, you get to reroll failed wounds).
    They will be my enemy's target priority number 1.
