    I have two colour schemes, the first one I did two storm Guardian squads, 2 wave serps and a wraithlord in before deciding it looked a little 'cold' looking. Enchanted Blue/Ice blue with a few mythril silver highlights.

    Now I'm running liche purple as a primary colour with red gore and mythril silver as highlight colours. Once I get a couple of models back from my mates house (Thats where we play so I leave the majority of my stuff there) I'll dig out the camera and take a couple of pics.

    I play a Biel-Tan force because I really like green too, your Autarch in your avatar is of the same paint scheme as what I use
    Google Biel-Tan Eldar and you'll get loads of really cool looking models

    Yeah Biel-tan. Maybe substitute white for bone if you want it a bit different?

    You might be doing this already, but if you want a darker result I recommend using black primer rather than white. I use black for my eldar (Ulthwe) whilst using white for my High Elves and there is a noticeable difference. You can also alternate between coats of black/green ink and foundation dry brushing to reach the level of dark you are after.
