    You need to do something about the huge areas of plainb white/cream which are monotone really.

    I also don't think the really muted colours suit the eldar but thats preference more than anything. The freehand is very well done

    You need some dark brown/ black shading in the recesses of the white parts, IMO. Especially on the wraithlord's fingers. However, I really like the flame patterning

    the flames are great, but... it realllllllly needs more detail. hit it the wraithlord with some black wash and use a micro marker to outline the ship.

    if you want to keep the straight white surface look, you need to paint it it dark grey, the build up layers of light grey, then finally white, that'll give it depth, and it'll look really good. the black wash is the easy way out. usking a micro marker still stands for the falcon, looks great, give it a try.

    I like the paint job so far - it justs needs some more depth like what pretty much everyone else said, it seems too simple right now, especially for Eldar. Get into those recesses.

    Guys, please note he put WIP. I am going to assume that those large areas of white are in fact areas he is yet to touch.

    I like the purple areas, the flames are nicely done, and the Japanese (or Chinese?) writing is quite well done. Aside from what people have said, shading, I think if you perhaps try some dark grey areas like you have on your farseer, it might add some much needed contrast. I think that is the problem, your scheme is good but as the purple isn't that dark, there is no contrast.

    Kuffy, i think everyone and myseld including often see flames as detail, and more often than not, the last detail that most people put on the model. Applying depth to the models now is only that much harder without hurting the flames, which suffice to say, are really nice. So i think people, myself, are only responding in such way because of that.

    good luck eagles

    thanks everyone for the advice! yea actually i wanted to put the flames on first on the fire prism to get an idea of how the tank would look as a whole but it is far from finished, though i had planned for much of the white to stay. On the wraithlord, the head is done and detachable, but i still need to finish the rest. Ill post up some more pics as i try out some of the things you all suggested

    Im thinking maybe add some green onto the fireprism and wraithlord, just a suggestion, but i think it will add some contrast, maybe do the raised blobs green? Apart from that job well done!

    First off, niiiiice job on the flames! the only suggestion I have is maaaaybe do a purple glaze of some kind over it to blend it all together even better, but it looks pretty good as is. Blending, as I am finding out, is an art form all on its own. You're doing well with it.

    The kanji(?) looks good, too. What does it mean? I assume you know what it means, and didn't just pick symbols that look cool. There's a whole Web site out there full of examples of people making that mistake with English, and, well, it's... entertaining.

    I assume (since this is a WIP) that you're going to put, say, some codex grey along one side of the lettering to give it a touch of depth?

    Finally, yeah, the white needs shading, but I'm guessing you already knew that before you posted the pics.

    Looking forward to more!
