Battlefleet Gothic WIP: Eldar

I inherited a box of BFG from my buddy Wil less than a year ago. In it were "some Eldar ships." Yeah, I did the math last night, there's almost 5000 points of Eldar fleet in the box, most of it still in blister.

So, in addition to the Chaos and Imperial fleet I have in process, I did a test Eldar Shadow cruiser to get the color scheme/paint list figured out. I'll probably get it to tabletop quality since that is the only hope I have of any of it being painted to completion as a fleet. That said, I like the scheme. It's easy, fast and reproducable since it is mostly drybrushing 3 distinct colors and no mixing colors at all. The highlights on the solar sails is thinned white painted along the edges and then the Scorpion Green basecoat glazed over it again.

This looks like a lot of fun to pain. Great jorb. Got any spare Space Marine ships?

Nope but if I find some out in the world I'll give you a ring. I'm heading to Historicon this Friday and there may be some there.

Hey Matt! I saw your BFG ships on the Rocketship Games blog and had to see more!

Could you tell me how you got that awesome gold effect on these ships (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y15/ap3xg3rm/Lakeharmony.jpg)?

Your Nurgle fleet looks awesome and I bet that Terminus Est will make one badass flagship. Keep up the good work!



p.s. Good luck at Historicon!
