Eldar Howling Banshees

These guys are part my latest work for my buddy's eldar...not sure if they're any good in game but they sure look cool.
Especially now that I gave them one of the best paintjobs I think I've done in a while...well that's my opinion in any case.

This was my first attempt at NMM main reason to do so was after watching the following video tutorial by watchingpaintdry.

Though it can easily become tedious it seemed pretty straight forward...and elves, space elves well what's really the difference? ;)
The only modification I made to this scheme was by adding the base color XV88 as my first highlight once the initial wash of agrax earthshade was layed down.
Its kinda tricky to know which areas to actually highlight or how much you want them to be...but I think the video helps in that regard.

As a bonus here's a random pic of a dark vengeance sergeant painted as an ultramarine.

Recepies recepies...write them down or you'll forget them!
Every good painter(which I'm not sure to be a part of) keeps a collection of all his recepies for success...this blog is also part of my attempt at doing so.
I now leave you with these words of wisdom...that and perhaps renaming this blog "isuckatblending .com"

Hope you enjoyed!
Until next time, happy hobbying!
