269: Eldar flyer commission

Hey everyone, actual painting progress has occurred!

Now that you are all over the shock, to the pictures.  These are two of the Eldar flyers, Wraithfighters I think they are called, that I've been painting for Zzzzzzzz who blogs over at Devos IV

They will join his growing Void Dragons force.

I can't claim any credit for the paint-scheme, that comes from Zzzzzzz, although every one of those hexagons is free-hand painted with two stages of highlighting.  The colour is a beautiful metallic red that is a mix of Mephiston Red and Hashut Copper as devised by Pirate Viking Painting, and the technique I used to create the hexagons is explained brilliantly in this blogpost.


Otherwise its just standard metallics, greys, and although they aren't visible in these pictures, the weapons and wraithbone was all done in a pretty standard bone colour pushed all they way close to white.  The weapons were magnetised at Zzzzzz's request, you can see them attached in his blogpost.

    1. Thanks, that means a lot from someone who can produce so much high quality painting. Cheers!

  2. They look nice.

    They are either Crimson Hunters or Hemlock Wraithfighters.

    The dorsal fins are Hunters, but the rune just posterior of the cockpit is Hemlock. It should be clear which they are from the guns.
