Eldar Alaitoc War Walker (Updated)

Ignoring the fact that the base looks super wonky, due to post production, I think this guy came out rather well.  This is my second completed War Walker, but the previous one was painted in an older scheme and style.  Fortunately, it should not take too much effort to update it to the standard of this one.  I have a 3rd one in the base-coating stage, which on these is the most time consuming.  This is the first model I've finished lately that is actually in my 1850 list.  The motivation was not looking like a scrub with a fully painted army minus my War Walkers.

Another difference with this is the choice of weapons.  These Brightlances aren't glued on and are rather modular.  I am planning to bit out some additional weapon holders for different arming options.  In reality I changed up to Brightlances over Scatter Lasers due to the rest of the army's composition.  With having 3 Wave Serpents spamming Str. 6/7 shots, having 6 more Scat-lasers seemed overkill.  The 6 Brightlances help bulk up my anti-tank and pull some pressure off the Fire Prisms.
