Eldar Jetbikes

Recommended Posts

So in the tradition of not finishing anything and moving onto something new, my pathfinder dragon has been untouched for ages now.

 

I moved onto 40k as my friends started playing, it awakened something inside me and I found a bunch of Eldar (the master race) on ebay for a really cheap price.

 

They were already painted this incredibly bright orange for some reason (hence the cheap price) but last weekend I found this... http://www.dreamalittlebigger.com/post/galaxy-easter-eggs.htmland thought. Wow, those easter egg shells look almost exactly like Jetbike's.

 

They're not perfect because I'm not spending too long on them, there's 10 bikes to paint so I don't want to spend 4 or 5 hours on each one. But I'm really pleased with how they are turning out.

this is an example of the bright orange they were before.

Nice pattern on the jetbikes.

Really cool.

 

Of course the flimsy eldar will fall to the might of Chaos, but hey, at least they look good :devil:

Hey, Chaos, you keep a civil tongue in your mouth when you're talking to your mother.

 

 

I loved the Eldar back in the day. The galaxy concept is very cool.

Love 'em!

 

Hey, what is it with painting 40K stuff orange? Couple years ago, I grabbed a full squad of Space Marines off eBay for a few bucks for the same reason: they were painted an awful, garish orange.

 

Alas, not all could be saved, but I did manage to strip most of them, paint up five or six as Blood Angels, sold three of those for five bucks each, and then used the unsalvageables as casualties in my terrains.

 

About a year before that, I bought a few orange attack bikes from an FLGS. Orange and green. And thick.

 

Gross. What is it with that?

Yeah I have no idea - to be honest I've never seen the orange before. But now, apparently it's a thing. Maybe there is a forum or article somewhere that says it makes a good mid-ground basecoat or something?

      Last on today's finished works, a selection of the Gellerpox Infected from the new 40k Kill Team boxed set, "Rogue Trader"



      The faction leader, Vulgrar Thricecursed.



      The Nightmare Hulk that makes me think GW is just teasing us about Mordheim at this point:




      Gnasher-Screamer, who would also make a great Hag.  She's got a built-in coven!



      The Gellerpox Mutants:

      Getting all, I have just been painting up a couple of teams for my friends to play blood bowl again, I haven't played for years since I was in the Waterbowl league, it was fun to paint up some fantasy again been doing a lot of sci-fi-fi and Modern military recently so it was a welcome change and has spurred me on to dig out the box with all my unpainted teams in it and get one done each month.
       
      This was the progress of the Wood Elf team which are called the 'Bare Arsed Chiefs'


      Nearly finished just needs the bases/numbering doing 



       
       The other team team I was doing at the same time was a norse one same stage just needs the bases/numbering doing 



       
       
      Been fun as I said I'll get some pictures of my other teams done which are Skaven, Undead (with werewolves), halfings, Vampire Counts, Amazon
       
      Raided my bits box to add some Team Score, turn & re-roll markers
       


       
      Just deciding which team to do next .. any requests

      Presenting Ensign Roxy "Hotshot" Malone, the colour scheme test Voidsman for my Starstriders set.
       
      I think she came out pretty well, and the group should look rather striking, when I eventually get the rest painted.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Finally got around to take pictures of my Warhammer diorama.
      I entered it into a local competition, and was lucky enough to win the Warhammer category. Thanks to everyone who wrote a comment in the WIP thread.
      Link here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81383-warhammer-diorama-pic-heavy/
       
      ..Sorry for the overload of pictures!  -could'nt help myself..
       
      Although on these pictures I can see many mistakes, I am quite happy with it.
      Hope you enjoy it, and as always any comment, critiq or question is welcome.
