Eldar – Guardian Defenders painted
Spent enough time painting tanks and other big things recently, so it was time to spend some time on the infantry! I have to admit, I’m getting tired of painting blue and yellow so it’s about time to move on to something new but before that happens the unit of Guardian Defenders got a lashing of paint! Pretty straightforward – I went with the same blue recipe used on the vehicles, but rather than sponging the various blues, I went with a mix of drybrushing and stippling with an old brush. The blue wash then tied it all together and muted it a bit. I knew I didn’t want to go crazy with the yellow, so just the helmets and a couple bits of cloth got the hot orange/golden yellow treatment. Once that was done, the weapons got the bone color, and then I went in and painted the umpteen zillion little tiny gems. Probably could have gotten away without that step, but since there’s just going to be the one unit of guardians they deserved a little extra work. Overall, a right serviceable unit who will likely hang back and sit on an objective (and get carved into ribbons by whatever looks at them funny). Next up? Who knows?
