Eldar: Autarch conversion & WIP Warp Spiders

More progress on the Eldar commission this week.

Firstly, here's an Eldar Autarch model. This model was converted by my client: he did a great job of magnetising the arms and backpack, as you can see below.


And as you can probably see, I bought a new lightbox! This was just a cheaper version from Ebay, but it's working out pretty well so far. These pictures were taken at night, and the box seems to have enough light to take reasonably good pictures. So here's hoping to some better photography on my blog...

Anyway, and back to models, here you can see the magnetised wings. I went with an "ice blue" colour on the wings, using Guiliman Glaze. They look great in real life; with an almost ethereal quality.


Here's a close up of the base, and a piece of Tyranid shell.




As I said, the model has removable arms. Here we have a sword and a shimmer shield, in a dynamic assault pose.


Here's another shot of the alternative backpack:


Finally for today, my client also wanted a squad of alternative Warp Spider models painted. These are actually the "Attercops" figures from Ghost Miniatures, and they are superb models.


They fit in perfectly with the existing GW range, and have a great range of dynamic poses. I was very impressed with them!
