Just completed: a 3000 point Eldar army.
This is an Ulthwe army that reversed the color scheme of bone and black.
Three assemblers and five painters worked on this project during the week of September 5. We ended up taking Monday the 12th to add detail work and go over everything a second time. An army has many hundreds of details that need to be tended to, and I hope that we made the best choices.
The vanes on the backs of the grav tanks are carved from basswood.
For the wraithbone effect, we decided to make larger pieces have a more aged look.
Units are numbers 1, 2, and 3 as indicated by number of descenders from the eye symbol. Some have one descender, etc. The Wave Serpents are also denoted by the number of vanes they have. The unit banners for the guardians are hand done, and are also numbered. They are different according to unit type and armament (black/not, storm/defender).
The jewels on the vehicle vanes are actually faceted, but after many layers of glaze and paint took on a rounded shape. Hemispherical smooth jewels are nearly impossible to find.
Good tabletop gaming quality, which I assume was your aim. Superhuman effort in the timescale but you have a big team there; unfortunately the difference in painting levels shows or else it's the unseemly rush to get things finished. But oh! those dreadful bases! Drop the orange sponges, they detract from the menace of Eldars.
I agree that they look great. On some you need to tone down the inking a bit, though, it looks too obviously like it's inked.
