I finished these guys last night and just had to wait til the bases were dry to drybrush them. I went for a very traditional scheme for these guys. I don't think I have ever run a squad of these guys in all my years playing Eldar. I got the models cheap off ebay and I'm hopeful that aspect warriors will have a better role in the upcoming new codex.

I finished my Swooping Hawk squad last night. The initial plan for these guys was to do one a day. Well I ended up with a few extra hours last night so I finished the last hawk a day early. I even did the basing for this squad.
The painting method used on these guys was a Lotheran Blue base, a black wash on top of that, followed by reapplying Lotheran Blue on the raised areas, a white edge highlight and blacklining in the recesses. The Wriathbone is Ushabti Bone base with Devlan Mud wash and a edge highlight of Ushabti.

I have to be honest, this may be my favorite scheme so far for my Aspect Warriors. Unfortunately, the last time I can remember when I used Swooping Hawk extensively was in the halcyon 2nd edition days when they were super mobile and dropped grenades like champs.
As to the paint scheme, it uses several techniques and color combos I like to keep consistent with all my Eldar. Those techniques are the wraithbone and hoses. I really like how the blue, black and white really pop individually, but still mesh together.
I'm excited to start work on the Exarch tomorrow. Seeing as this guy didn't take that long, I should finish the exarch and start on another of the squad.

I've been working on these models since they were released almost 6 years ago. I've got another 4 in the almost finished category. Most of the 20 new style Harlequins that I picked up when they were released have their diamonds finished. My problem is getting around to finishing everything else.
