This is my first post on here.
I've recently rediscovered 40k. About 10yrs ago I had a SM army but thats long since lost, so I've started with eldar. I want an army that will be easy to paint and look alright.
Here a photo of the first minature I painted. I just sorta want some feedback on the scheme. I know I'm not that great of a painter, I just don't want another Green/White eldar army.
All comments welcome.
looks like pretty good painting. I don't particularly like pale blue and grey combo but that comes down to individual taste.
It looks very different to my own green and white eldar.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
Hey thanks for posting the pic - it's very similar to how i want to do my eldar. I think the Grey armour looks good. I'm going for Dark Green helmets for my guardians. I think either more highlighting is required or maybe a different colour for some of the raised armour plates to provide contrast - what do you think?
Nothing particularly stunning, but it's still a pretty solid TT-quality job. Your painting is crisp and clean, which is more then can be said for many, many people in here.
One thing I don't quite like in it is the fact that you are using so many different colors on the gemstones... but that might be just myself. Other then that, your painting is okay.
i like it. nice contrasting colors

It is important to paint to the scale involved, if you are looking at a person from 200 metres you don't notice that they are wearing 8 different colours, you just notice the major patterns.
I would suggest you select 1 pimary colour, 1 secondary and 1 tertiary colour (if you must) and stick to them. This will provide a more unified look to the army. Later on as you become more advanced in painting then you will learn how and when to add extra colour.
A solid piece of work on the whole though, kudos.

The figures look nice and clean but a bit under highlighted/shaded. I personally would like to see more definition in the figure. Darklining the inside of the helmet, armor segments, etc. will really help them pop in detail. I would also like to see the gems painted up more than just a base coat. There was a good example of how to paint gems in the US White Dwarf 319 (last months). I believe they have a decent tutorial also in How to paint space marines and I am sure you can find something similar on their website.
Otherwise not bad. Color choice isn't my favorite but it is your army and not mine! :w00t: Don't forget to put something on the base!
Good luck and welcome back to the land of painting!

The grey and blue scheme is solid, but I think that you should cut out most of the accent colors and stick to one (maybe two). That way the model looks less cluttered.
Also in the current eldar codex there is a SMALL section on painting gems in the colour pages.Originally Posted by slorak
