    I read the article on how to scratch and chip and weather Space Marines, but I don't see pictures of Eldars with this stuff. Has anyone weathered or scratched their Eldars to make 'em look tough? Show me your guys please.

    Actually, I&#39;d do it the other way around. No matter how ancient and advanced your culture is, if a space marine punches you in the face you&#39;re going to get dirty =)
    On the other hand, Eldar armour is not likely to be made of something that rusts, they left steel behind before man discovered it.

    If you want to make them battle-worn, put some dirt on them, especially on their shoes/boots from walking in muddy fields or dusty ruined hives. You could also scratch their armour up a bit but paint it blackened instead of steel or rust to represent composite materials and wraithbone vapourizing under lasbolts and shrapnel hits.

    Okay, that last bit confused me with the words =)

    But thanks, that helps a lot.

    And the plural of Eldar is Eldar. Same with Tau and Kroot.

    Feel free to do it, although instead of metal use bleached bone for the weathering. Their armour&#39;s made out of a psychic-reactive ceramic (or plastic) called Wraithbone.
