Finally finished up my Warp Spider squad. I really like the scheme for two reasons. I like how it looks on it's own and is rather different than my other Aspect squads and my Craftworld forces.
Up next is a tough call right now. There are no units that I need to paint to field an army that I like. I still have my titan than I haven't touched in forever. That is more of a work on when I have time and motivation, unfortunately, motivation has been lacking lately. With rumblings of new Dark Eldar on the horizon, maybe i'll revisit Commorragh and paint some more evil kin.

My favorite part of this paint job is the powerblades. A rather poor equipment choice notwithstanding, they at least look cool.
The next goal is to put some work on the rest of the squad, 6 more Spiders. After that though, I am not sure where to go next. My Eldar stockpile is running low at the moment. The stockpile is still rather large, just not in comparison to what has been painted.

The two primary colors at work here are black and purple. The under suit is a white prime with several washes of purple. Those washes were followed up with highlights. The black is Abaddon Black over a white prime with Xereus Purple lining on the edges. The wraithbone is Ushabti Bone washed with Devlan Mud with original color in highlights. The hardest call color wise was the buttons at the white pennants on the legs and forearms. I ended up going with the base color used for the cloth.
I have a second one started and another 5, including an Exarch, getting ready to be primed. When I finish this squad I'll have a unit of all aspects sans Shining Spears.

These are few more of the Reaper Models I've been working on. These are painted in the same style as the previously posted models. I find doing these have been rather refreshing. Doing just one model at a time and not having to worry about doing 9 more just like it is nice.
I've got a few more of these finished I need to photograph. There are also a few more character models in various stages of completion. Hopefully, I can find some motivation to start doing some more Eldar work.

I kinda feel that the wraithbone overshadows the paint job, but I also feel the contrast between it and the white/blue armor is nice. The cloth hanging down I feel came out real well and provides another color contrast.

Some change of pace here. I bought a bunch of Reaper models years ago when a store was going out of business. I got these models at $1 a piece in anticipation of one day needing them. Well, my current Pathfinder campaign is using minis heavily so I thought I should throw some paint on them.
They are all painted in a similar technique. Of these three, my favorite is the Cleric. I really love the model and I feel the paint job came out real well.

To be honest, I bought a Wraithknight just because I didn't own one. When you have a large army you get to the point where you're picking up models just because you don't have them. It's not that I hate the Wraithknight, I am just not a huge fan. I like the size and all, but there is just too much going on with the model compared to classic Eldar ascetic. That might seem hypocritical compared to my statments regarding the two different Wraithlords, but really it's a fine line. The Wraithlord, IMO, is on the other side of that line as compared to the Wraithknight. This model is just so out of place compared the rest of the army. Maybe whenever the titan is finish it will blend in a bit better.
Paint scheme wise it's standard Alaitoc. I feel there are a bit too many gems on the model, even for it's size. They end up dominating the model when painted instead of accentuate.

Paint scheme wise, this is my standard Alaitoc effort.
I have a lot of new stuff finished. I just need to do some photography work. I plan to be active this month.
