here is the latest addition to my Saim-Hann army ( (Mayor Quimby's Saim-Hann army WIP)link to WIP thread): a Striking Scorpion unit.
I think the Striking Scorpions models are great, in my opinion they are the best models in the Eldar range... however, I didn't like the Codex color scheme at all (I don't think they are so stealthy with that bright green armor) so I toned down the colors, for a more natural and "realistic" look.
Painting them took a lot of time, but I am quite pleased of the final result.
Here is the Exarch, which is a model I like a lot and was a real fun to paint (the small scorpion on the base is a nice addition).
I wish I could magnetize its weapons, but there wasn't enough room to magnetize the Biting Blade.
Here is a detail of the Exarch's face...

Awsome the darker green makes them look mega stealthy awsome job!
oh yeah and the basing is really cool aswell, especialy the building peices on the back ones, I think this deserves some Reppage.

Man everytime i see one of your new Eldar units im astounded. They look amazing, i love the toned down colour scheme. If i had to choose between these and your howling banshees i'd be stuck for eternity. :p
What paints did you use? And what are you using to make the bases?
That's top work. Good job.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
damn, those are some awesome scorpions, very nice colour scheme, much nicer than the birght green GW paints their scorps with. I look forward to seeing your next unit.
I hope I can paint my Striking Scorpions to even half the standard of yours.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
I love the paint scheme! Combined with the model, it has a very "predator-esque" style!

Thank you everybody for your comments, keep them coming!
I started from black primer, I am sorry but I don't remember the exact ratio for mixed paints.
I started with a Citadel Camo Green + VMC German Camo Black Brown undercoat.
I highlighted it adding more Camo Green to the mix, up to pure Camo Green.
I painted the final highlight with a mix of Camo Green and VMC Ivory.
I undercoated the yellow areas with a mix of VMC Medium Flesh and VMC German Camo Black Brown.
I highlighted it adding more Medium Flesh to the mix, up to pure Medium Flesh.
I painted the final highlight with a mix of VMC Medium Flesh and VMC Ivory.
I undercoated the black areas with a mix of Citadel Chaos Black and VMC Dark Grey.
I highlighted it adding more Dark Grey to the mix, up to pure Dark Grey.
I painted the final highlight with a thin line of VMC Neutral Grey.
I undercoated the black areas with a mix of VMC Dark Grey, VMC German Camo Black Brown and VMC Ivory.
I highlighted it adding more Ivory to the mix, up to pure Ivory (for the final highlight).
I made them using pieces of Pegasus Hobbies Gothic City Ruins (link), pieces from plastic sheets of paved street (York Stone Paving, link), flock leaves (Ivy Leaves, link), and sand.
Hope this helps!
