Hey all, just wanted to share my army as it comes along. I am definitely a player first and a painter second, so I know these aren't going to win any awards. So far I am only using solid colors with water, not mixing paints at all yet. Haven't tried any highlighting or shading effects either. These are the first models I have ever painted so I know I have a lot to learn, but I am having a lot of fun.
I've looked at a lot of websites and forums and haven't found very many Eldar Aspect warriors that are not painted with the same or very similar color schemes as can be found in the codex. Not that I don't like those schemes, but I wanted my army to have more of a unified look. Anywhoo, let's get on with the photos.
Any comments/criticisms appreciated.
I would appreciate help on posting/taking photos as well, I realize these are small, but I don't know how to fix that.
Thanks in advance.

If these really your first models I can only say that should you put the effort into learning new techniques you will soon be one of those painters that many aspire to be. Your brush control and colour choices are great considering and are a solid base for any miniature. Even with minor highlights or simply ink washes these models would look great.

@siguy-Yeah, we ended up with very similar looks. I like the way yours have a more grim feel to them. I think I may have tried to use too many different colors, but since I'm basically using the same colors on my whole army, I wanted a bit of variety to draw from. My Swooping Hawks which aren't done yet, but are probably next, have the Golden Yellow as a base and the Scab Red as the accent. I'm finishing my Farseer right now, should have competed pics up tomorrow. Thanks all for the advice and encouragement.
One question about washing. If I were to use a red wash, do I just apply it to the parts that are painted red, or to the entire model?
I agree with all the above statements. If you use darker color washes (badab black for the red would be a good option imo) and drybrush with a lighter color (blood red mıght be good ın your case, I belive the red you use is darker) then these miniatures would be stunning.
An ink wash would do wonders. As they are they kind of look like lego men.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Hey guys, just finished my Farseer last night.
I'm pretty happy with it. The one thing I am still really struggling with are eyes. I'm using a Citadel Precise Detail brush and they still turn out blobby. I'm considering using the head of a pin on my next set of eyes. Any suggestions?
Next up will be my Swooping Hawks. I have them all basecoated, and one has the Scab Red on the armor plates.
