hey all, i recently won an auction on ebay that had the eldar codex and a box of banshees.
These will be my first eldar models, wierd choice i know but they were a bargain. Anyway I need some help with what paints I use for the different steps of painting.
My army will be biel-tan, and I would like to incorperate some of the green somewhere on the model, perhaps the sash or the areas inbetween the armor plates.
So I just need to know which paints I use after I prime them white... A fairly fast method but still looks reasonable.
EDIT: I found a green I really like for my Eldar, can anyone tell me what it is.

Looks to me like it was probably Snot Green, with a Scorpion Green highlight, all over a white undercoat.
Should be relatively simple.

look to the back of the codex in the painting section and you'll find the army listed that this colour scheme is for, it will tell you what colours are used

Aspect Warriors, in the fluff, have their own color scheme with small bits of their host craftworld's colors.
Banshees are traditionally white/bone colored. Nevertheless, the loincloths and hair allow for craftworld colors.
Personally, I further synchronize my aspect warriors by painting all gems and weapons the same color.
Here's my banshee guide and the finished product.
Prime grey or white (white would be better) and pant all the areas you want metal or black, well, Black! Then paint the hair with merchite red, then wash it with very watered down black (or badab black but don't go buy it if you don't have it). For the cloth, if you want green, paint it snot green, wash with thrakka green and highlight with scorpion green. It is better to get the washes out of the way before you do the bone colour. For the bone, paint the entire area with denheb stone, water it down a bit to avoid streaking. Then wash it with Gryphone Sepia. Then drybrush the entire bone area with bleached bone, then pick out the extreme areas with skull white. To finish the hair, drybrush it with blood red, then orange (not too yellow). Then for the metal, drybrush with boltgun metal then highlight with chainmail (and then if you want, further with mithril sliver.
Final product, minus green cloth--
Hope it helps ya!
That looks great thanks alot man, bookmarked this page to remember which paints to buy >.<
