Eldar Farseer by ThisPendentWorld Eldar Farseer by ThisPendentWorld
My first (and probably last) Eldar. I thought I would never get done with this...

No wonder you thought you'd never get done. You just painted Eldrad Ulthran, one of the most detailed Eldar models ever. The model came out over a decade ago, but with the level of detail it could just as well have come out just last month.
By the way, and I don't know if you honestly care (and if not just ignore this bit) you painted him in the wrong colors. I don't mean to tell you what colors to use, it's just that I play the craftworld he's from, so I tend to get particular.

Yeah it definitely holds up to the standard of recent models, even surpassing some of them *cough*new empire fincast wizard*cough* :D
I know it's the wrong colours, I hope it's not too offending to hardcore Eldar fans hehe. I just wanted to do something different at the time and the model was just perfect for it ^^

The one I painted up for my army was the old pewter model, so I haven't had the opportunity to paint the Citadel Finecast version of Eldrad. All in all, I don't really have a problem with finecast, especially in regards to detail, but there's something to be said for the heft of a pewter centerpiece model.
I can certainly understand why you'd choose to use this model for a bit of something different. His ''true'' color pallate is a somewhat monotone black-and-white.

I haven't had much of a problem with finecast either, except that they seem to be bending in the heat (his staff was originally bent, I straightened it up after having it in hot water, but it's slowly bending again). And there's definitely some charm about the weigth of metal minis :D
Yup, wasn't my fave thing to paint, but it's a lot better now with the new greys such as Eshin Grey ^^

Huh. I didn't know they had any problems with heat. Thanks, I'll have to remember that.
I'm not familiar with Eshin Grey. Is that one of those newfangled paints they released last month?

Yeah I definitely wouldn't leave them in a window or near a lamp or anything like that, during midsummer I think I'll have to put them in the fridge hehe ^^
Yep it's a new very nice, dark grey - now I don't have to mix anymore :D

Hmm... I'll have to keep that in mind. I've got a couple of unpainted finecast models, so it'll be good to remember.
So, it's darker than Codex Grey? Interesting.

Yes there are actually 3 shades darker than codex grey now, if I remember correctly :thumbsup:

Amazing work friend :) one question...i loved how your gems look can you tell me or make a step by step on how you do it please...?
And if i get it right you added the blue glaze on top of a metal color right?
Thanks

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! :) The blue glaze is just a finishing touch, it's too light to really give much shadow, so I'd reccomend layering up from a darker colour or a shade, then add the glaze at the end ^^

As for the gems, I'd love to make a tutorial, I'll see what I can do :) It's really quite simple though, I started with a dark colour (dark angels green), with some black along the bottom, then I blended a lighter colour (snot green) halfway across the gem, then I added the lightest highlight (goblin green) in the bottom corner, and some white dots in the opposit corner :)
Hope that helps! :D

Lovely use of the metallic purple on the helm, there. What paint did you use to get that effect?

Thanks :) it's one of the new washes, I can't remember the name but it's the blue that is labelled as a "glaze".

It's funny because I'm not much of an Eldar fan myself, I just wanted to paint something different :thumbsup:
