Just wrapped these up today. I have a tournament in a week or so and since I’ll be putting these on the table (for the second time), I have to have them painted or be completely disappointed in myself.

All of the techniques and colors were the same as the other five, except for the use of Seraphim Sepia on all the gold bits on the Spirit Seer.

While the gems aren’t anything to write home about, they are a lot easier now that I’ve done a couple. Mostly, I’m just happy to have the blue to bring some diversity to the color scheme.

Who says the Eldar don’t wear leather; shiny, RED leather (yellow leather…red leather…yellow leather…)?

Thanks for looking, and for the kind comments. My hope is to show other ‘non-painters’ that they can achieve some decent results with only a little effort and even less skill!

Finished a small unit of Wraith Guard this weekend.

I was brave(?) enough to actually do a gem (singular).

They were primed in black, base coated in the Krylon (sp?) ‘tan’ color, dry-brushed with some terrible mix of white and ‘Skeleton Bone’ (Army Painter).

The red is Mephiston, the black is black, the gold is shiny. The wash is the Army Painter ‘Light’ tone.

They are sealed with a clear satin (I think satin is under-rated and I think ‘flat’ sealers make my amateur painting look even worse than it is). I have tested models (same model, painted the same way) with both sealers and always end up picking the satin. I -think- it’s because I don’t dork around with ‘highlights’.
