These pics were taken pre-varnish, but this is pretty much it for the mount. It's a bald eagle, to match the other one I painted.
This base belongs to the other eagle, so I'll have to spruce something else up.
Back before I decided to do the winter elves I had the passing notion to use red as an accent color, but wasn't sure how well it would work. You've pulled it off very well though. I'm glad someone is willing to paint birds. I sent my warhawk riders out to Bretonnia in the exchange program because, for me anyway, painting birds is for the... well, you get the idea.
Your wood elves continue to impress me. This is looking good so far.
Is it just my eye or do the great eagle models look freakin' huge?
The Great Eagle is definitely freaking huge. It's bigger than the winged nightmare I just finished. I guess, for one, they had to make it demonstrably bigger than the warhawks (which I don't blame you for passing off...it was a pain to paint mine).
The noble was over-primed, and I'm starting to see the problems with that.
The robe didn't exactly turn out like I'd planned, but I'll wait to see what it looks like with the rest of the model painted.
I've done better jobs with capes, but again, I'll wait and see what the rest looks like.
A strange model. I think whoever sculpted it also did the Warhawk models. The birds are great, and the riders are really good, though they don't have the same aspects as the foot models.
You can still see some of the glue drying, as well as the wad of putty that's holding it in place while the epoxy and superglue set.
looks cool dude, nice job,
how'd you do all the feathers on the eagle? drybrush? inked?

I think it looks great. The cloak on the rider looks cool to.
Personally I hate the Warhawk-models. Not because of the whole "Legolas surfing giant pigeons"-thing, but because they were a pain to assemble! Why, o why, couldn't we get them in plastic?
I've been eager to start on this guy for several months. Contrary to popular opinion, I always thought it was a cool model, but the amount and depth of detail kept me away from it.
Eager to paint something other than Wood Elf Archers, I picked up this model and named it Alfonso.
Now that I've begun it, I wonder how wise was my decision. So far, I've used several Foundation paints on the model. I used a mix of two Foundation paints as the base for the cape. The leaves were based in the dark green Foundation--Orkhide Shade, I think. I highlighted the leaves more as they approached the top of the model, and the bottom, flat part of the cape.
The flesh was also based with a Foundation, though I wish it'd had some darker undertones. It was a bit pale for a basecoat. Last, the vines connecting all the leaves were basecoated with a thinned out Foundation.
I'm not sure what to do with his tunic. I was considering a dark, rich red as there's a good bit of leather to do, and I don't want a model that's shades of brown all the way around, from his cape to the vine to his clothing to the stave.
