Eldar Alaitoc Vyper Jetbike

I just found out a new way to strip plastic minis that don't ruin the model.  So I stripped most of my plastic Eldar stuff that looked outdated or just plain bad.  My 3 Vypers are a part of that group.  They had several layers of paint and it was nice to see them looking fresh and clean.

This is the first vehicle i've finished in my new Alaitoc scheme.  My favorite part is definitely the mottled look of the armor.  It meshes with the yellow and wraithbone rather well.  

I hope to finish my Scorpion II heavy tank sometime this week.  It is mostly done and just needs some finishing touches.

Eldar Alaitoc War Walker (new pics)

I got a new lens today, its a 50mm f1.8 from Canon.  I would have prefered the f1.4, but that's a bit too rich for my blood and realisticly I don't need that much lens for my purposes.  The new lens coupled with me getting a bit more comfortable using a DSLR have turned out a much better representation of color.

Eldar Alaitoc Guardians

I have never been a fan of the current plastic Guardian models.  They definitely are showing their age and unfortunately because they are already in plastic GW will most likely not release a new kit anytime soon.  Added to the fact that the two squads of the plastic ones I have were already painted when I got them and the previous owner didn't bother to do the little things like different poses or mold line scraping.  I love the detail and individuality that the older metal Guardians posses.  You can field a unit of 10 models that all look distinctly different.  So far I have two and half squads worth of minis off ebay while still looking for more.  

As to the paint scheme it fits my vehicle scheme of Alaitoc.  I'm looking to update my 10 Pathfinders next.
