    Saim-Hann Storm Guardians (2nd unit)

    Hi everybody,
    here is the latest addition to my Saim-Hann army (link (Mayor Quimby's Saim-Hann army WIP) to WIP thread in the Project forum), my second Storm Guardian unit.



    This is the first time I used a glaze medium to blend the layers, and I am quite happy of the results.
    Moreover, I used a new recipe for the red basecoat (red, dark grey and green) and this gives a little more depth to the shades.

    Here is a close-up of three Guardians...



    ...and a close-up of the Guardians with the special weapons, which can be swapped using magnets.





    Hope you will like them, comments and constructive criticism are strongly appreciated!

    Really nice.

    I like the white meltas better. I think it makes them stand out a bit more!

    Good work!

    I agree. I like the white guns better. And your units are all really nice looking. I'm going off a hunch that you win best painted army alot

    As always dude, your skills are an inspiration for the rest of us, the quality of army that draws in random customers and makes them Warhammer players. Keep sharing! (+rep)

    Nice. Clean painting and everything pops on them. Very eye catching. Some of the highlights look messy, especially on their breast plates. Just wanted to give you the heads up if you missed that. :p

    The blue lance on your HQ is very stunning. All of the soldiers meld together well. Maybe you can make a tutorial as to how you accomplished this work

    Nicely done. Clean and crisp. Always a pleasure when you post new units.

    Cool stuff, as usual. I agree that the white on the flamers look better than the red fusion guns. Perhaps painting the fusion guns more orange would give a nice contrast? Or copy GW's way of painting Fire Dragon fusion guns and paint the nozzles in a brass colour.

    You are right, that's because I tried to highlight the Guardians using just two layers of paint (I usually use 3-4), using glazes to blend them. I don't master the technique yet, so here and there I made some mistakes.

    Ok, next time I paint something I will write a step-by-step tutorial.

    I agree that white looks better, orange can work as well. I admit I used red just because I am becoming lazy and I wanted to complete the Guardians in a short time.
    I don't want to use brass because I never used metallics on my Eldar... I don't know why, but metallics don't fit the Eldar theme IMO.
