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.

Edited to add in a picture with the 4th rider finished.

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:

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?

      Due to a certain person working up my interest in Battlefleet gothic, (okay, really all you have to do is wave a new ship under my nose, its not really a challenge) I went into my archives to see what I could paint to scratch the itch.  So out of the archives I dug these ancients out of hiding to go from prime to painted.  I am not really sure of their vintage but they are old enough to be something I bought when I was 15 and they are actual lead GW minis, which I thought didn't actually exist!  Anyway, I thought others would enjoy them.  They are the same color scheme as my favorite imperium fleet (I might have a few...) and I was trying for that sharp bright color scheme.  I think I succeeded but to each his own.  I think these are a pair of old crusiers and a battleship but if anyone wants to try their google fu and identify them, have at!
       
      enough said, enjoy a little fleet action on a Monday!

      Presenting The Engineer, this hulking monstrosity of flesh and steel was originally another Nurgle-themed baddie from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset (like his friend Screamin' Eddie).
       
      Not quite as happy with this one as I was with Eddie, for all his details he ended up kinda boring looking, but I was rather pleased with how his fiery belly turned out.

      They called them Renegade. Traitor. Heretic. Just for abandoning the lies of the Corpse-Emperor for the loving embrace of Grandfather Nurgle. They heard his call, they would tend to the eternal garden.

      Here are some of my last finished miniatures of 2019, I just forgot to upload them to the forums.  Cultists, Renegades, and Traitors to serve in my Warhammer 40k forces.

      Field agents of the Inquisition, Crusaders are warriors trained in some of the finest military academies in the galaxy.
      They provide any group they are assigned to a wealth of knowledge and experience, and a worrisome reminder that the Inquisition is always watching.
       
      Presenting Hugo the Crusader, a character class from Warhammer 40k by Games Workshop (this particular one is from the Blackstone Fortress standalone game).
       
      This one proved quite tricky, made the classic mistake of getting him assembled and based before checking to see if I could actually get into all his nooks and crannies. He turned out quite good though.
