Today I finished painting my first Eldar figure. While this wasn’t the first 40k figure that I’ve painted as of late, it was the first one that I felt invested in the outcome of. Granted, it’s a little lumpy in places and the fine detail isn’t so fine, but it represents a good baseline of what I can currently produce. Hey, if nothing else this model will serve as a complementary “before” picture to a model that is yet to be painted in the (distant) future.
You can find some images of the model here and a video showing the progression on youtube below:
I also posted the images and video on the 40k subreddit and received some useful feedback. Some ideas for next time:
- Use white or grey primer
- Use a wet palette
- Don’t paint everything the base color
