Eldar - Striking Scorpions painted, and a tiny bit more Wraithknight

I wanted to finish up the half-done Striking Scorpions unit from earlier, and was able to find some brush time in over the last couple days. The lion's share of the work was already done, so it was just a matter of picking out the details!

I'm pretty pleased with how the green on green worked out, and I tried to continue on the yellow stripe spot color to the weapons. Gave the pouches and holsters a khaki base followed by some devlan mud in the recesses. Once that was done they got the standard  graveyard earth and dark flesh on the base followed by a little static grass.

The rear of the models shows the light green undersuit and darker green armor plates, as well as the ever popular dreadlocks. As we all know, scorpions are known for their dreadlocks!

While waiting for the bases to dry I finished off the yellow trim on the Wraithknight and started picking out the 80-some odd gemstones. That stage is gonna take a while to finish!


  1. Very nice Mordian.

    The gold came up well and I think the stripes on the swords help what could have been otherwise a very bland part.

    The two tone green is great.

  2. Looks great! I like the shiny look to the plates, very carapace-y. Wraithknight is also coming along beautifully, love the chevrons.

  3. Everything is looking Great. Your opponents are really going to love that Scorpions Claw :-)

  4. @Frothing Muppet: Thanks! The swords needed something - I tried fully yellow but that didn't look too good so I just settled on some various striped patterns.

    @Evan S: I appreciate it! The army is coming together nicely!

    @Col. Dracus: Hah! My opponents may not, but I certainly will! :)

    Cheers all!

  5. I love scorpions - my favourite aspect warriors ever ever ever. Yours look fantastic in their aspect colours.

    And the WK just keeps looking better.
