    Really bad looking fire prism

    So I'm really lazy and the only way to get myself painting is probably by having you guys criticize my terrible painting (this can't be healthy)

    So here's a picture of my metallic Fire Prism (btw I know a lot of people hate metallics on eldar so sorry)

    That's not bad actually. You could paint a pattern or something on it. I've seen it done before. As it is right now it's quite boring but........

    I like the brownish tones, adds some depth as opposed to just drybrushed chainmail.
    Dig it.
    At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!

    Yeah I'm with JMichael, it's not drybrushed chainmail or boltgun that everyone dislikes Eldar. It still has a smooth and more natural look to, it looks pretty sharp.

    I like it, quite uniqe as you say but perhaps more realistic in a way then the bright shiny colors that everyone use (me included) for eldar. Im glad to see something different even.

    Cheers!

    It's not too bad, it just needs... more. From a distance, I would forgive people for thinking it had only been undercoated.

    Those designs will be very hard and probably make you want to murder someone while trying to paint them, i suggest adding highlights, like 3 layers, and obviously progressively get brighter you go up.

    I'd recommend using multiple coats of a watered down paint to bring out the details/crevices. I have a Wave Serpent painted Dark Angles Green, and the crevices are Skorpion Green.
    I'll probably post pictures soon, but it looks very Tron-esque. It was super easy to do; I've received a ton of compliments on it, and I only have two colors on it so far! (It's a WIP)
