Long time lurker, umm 4th time poster I think. I've been trying out a new color scheme with my eldar. Basically Guardians/Vehicles... all aspect types I've been trying to keep pretty much to the standard color schemes. Here are some pictures of guardian/vyper/dire avengers.
Let me know what you think... I'd love to hear any constructive crtisisms and helpfull tips that I could use in the future.
I like'm, the pics are slightly fuzzy for me to see the real detail, but I still like'm.:happy:

It seems to me that the drybrushing of the bone color over the red is a little heavy and makes the armor look blotchy. When drybrushing in the future, make sure you brush is really dry. you only want the slightest hint of bone color on the edges. Also, you may want to ink the bone color on the solid colored parts then drybrush back over it with the bone color. Other than that, the quality of the painting looks solid. The paint seems to be a regular consistency, and the colors you chose work well together. Personally, I don't like the metallic bit on top of the ShuriCat, but if you do, then its your mini. Cheers :drinking:
Hope these suggestions are helpful.

The crests on the avengers look awesome.
they look like solid table minis. i like the way you did the drybrushing on the red of the Vypers, but the dry brushing on your guardians looks too heavy.
The DA look good althought i like to see them as a darker blue. Base those and they look pretty set.
Everything looks very clean, my only real suggestion would be to work on your miniature photography. You need an extra light source or something just so that all the details show up.
In terms of painting I really like the colours you have used, they are different to what else I have seen. With regards to the drybrushing, if it is supposed to be shading then it does need a smoother gradient as Radioactivejack said.
I wouldn't panic though what I can see looks really good.

Thanks guys, means a lot.
I agree I think my drybrushing is a bit heavy in spots. I do like the look it give the vehicles (beat up and dusty) but I think it may be a bit much on the toops. I think i may need a better drybrush since that is pretty much the minimum I can put on the brush for it to make any mark at all. Also would maybe thinning out the Bone white make it easier dry brush it afterwords?
It looks fine to me, lets duel!
