I think the first pic is awesome, but I guess I'm not a big fan of the bright orange look. Nice clean painting and good color choice. The only thing I dont like is the color in the other two pics, but it looks like they were taken with a different camera or lighting or something. Either way, color is just a personal preference and I think you did a pretty nice job on the painting. Good job!
I think I'm gonna do lava bases for my salamanders, so hopefully somebody gives you some pointers so I can snatch em!:ninja:
Apart from the blue parts which I think clash with the red (or are they orange?), they're pretty damn good.
Personally, I would have kept the blue sections to a minimum, maybe just on the sashes, or as a unit marking. I'm guessing that the blue is used to link them in with the rest of your army?
It just seems to draw the eye away from the rest of the model in my opinion.
But overall, a nice job.
The first pic is a true representation of their colour, the other two were taken at night with a flash so have came out brighter!
The Blue was originally just for the sash's as seen on the dragons, but for the exarch i wanted to make him really stand out against his comrades so let him paint his own armour. He wanted blue fire everywere! Just goes to show, never let your mini's have their own way
On a slightly less insane note, I do like the fire dragons mate. I think the blue looks quite good actually, especially on the exarchs head crest. The firepike looks funky as well. The only thing I don't like is the grey highlighting on the black fusion guns, but I get the feeling this is excentuated by the camera flash and nowhere need as bad in real life. The highlighting on the firepike black areas certianly seems fine, just the normal fire dragon guns seem a bit overdone.
Can't wait to see pics of these guys based up and ready to go. Now, please excuse me, I must go and talk to my dreadnought about inviting his parents around for tea.... *manic laughter*
*shuffles off into a dark corner*
i realy like the strong contrast of the blue and red, IMO it says 'Eldar' quite well. different than many other themes and quite cool. keep it up.
"You'd never imagine how many people would like an electric chair hanging on their wall. Especially if it fits the colour of the wallpaper."
I see brown, but I am guessing its Red Gore right? I am sure they look great without that horrible lighting. Keep it up.
I love the exarch he looks great, but the last 2 pics look bad to me probaby just the fire dragons against that yellowish wall.
Prey they don't take you alive
I'm having a hard time getting over the highlighted butts, though I'm not sure how I'd do them differently. Also, I'd have used brighter reds to match the blues and whites.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: Are you wounded?
Clouseau: No. Fortunately I was saved by the darkness.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: So what we need is more light.
That just goes to show how bad the lighting was when i took the pics, that yellow wall is actually white! Thanks for the kind words, the reason i went with darker reds (vallejo black red with dark red over the top by the way) was that my whole eldar force is going to be a ulthwe variant. I want different aspect colours, but i want them to gel, so they will all be done in darker undertones.
I think the blue flames look good, if i was to alter them i might make them a little darker but you live and learn i guess! As for those damned butts, just think of how i felt having to paint them! Ive decided my entire army is made of females and therefore painting their rears is perfectly acceptable!
Oh, and RP, you think having a few dread in-laws is bad, try making dinner for a genestealer and his kids! Honestly, the mess they leave behind is ridiculous!
