I'm planning to build some eldar scenery as would be found on a craftworld. My models will be based with the floor of the craftworld. Therefore, I need to know what the craftworlds look like.
I have looked on the Internet for about half an hour and can't find anything useful. At the moment I'm just going to go for DoW style eldar buildings (spires, weird shapes), with standard tiles on bases/floor. Painted in bleached bone (mainly) for the wraithbone effect. Any ideas how to make their bases (and the senery) look obviously like a craftworld? Has anyone done this before (pictures please)?
Do you have the Eldar Codex? There is quite a few pictures showing craftworlds and other eldar architecture in there.
a). Its mostly black and white
b). They're desogned from an artistic stand point, so most of them are obscured or only half-visible.
c). You can't see the floor that well and I need it for my bases (at the moment doing white flagstones but?
For bases, I would stick to smooth floor. Basically, plasticard with a few recessed lines in. You can just score lines with a knife or you can cut the card into some interesting shapes. Low steps or small elevated areas could be made by just stacking some more plasticard on top. But really, if you don't make it too gothic or too outdoors-y or rough, you should be able to call whatever you do a craftworld. Remember, the craftworlds have parks and gardens so you can get away with grass and plants.
For buildings, the spindly spires and rib-like supports would work well, I think. Warp gates are pretty common eldar scenery, here is one. When painting them, use white, bone, whatever is your craftworld colours, in any combination.
Most importantly: This is only opinion and thinking out loud. Do whatever you think will works. Oh, and even if you are not a good sketch artist, it really helps to draw a picture of what you want to do and see different ideas on paper.
