OK, here he is, the autarch on his jetbike. This will be my entry for the Eldar contest that happening this week right here
The details on this model:
The lance and banner, the shield and the head plumage all came from the high elf dragon sprue. The base came from an orc and goblins model and the cape I green stuffed. I painted the model using the stippling technique that I found in an ancient White Dwarf. The logo on his helmet sort of resembles the half moon that my kind of Eldar are scared of, I also added it to the banner. (mind you, I had never put an eldar together before this)
I spent some time on the banner, giving it a galaxy-kind of look which was fun to work on.
I do think this guy looks a little flashy, but without the drama there wouldn't be any Warhammer. I am convinced the galaxy is filled with amazingly talented heroes that can kill the enemy while sporting there sacred banner.
This contest is great fun and being quite competitive, I was on it like a bloodhound but now it's done, I am kind of relieved. In the end the process is always more fun than the end result...
Next post it is back to the Iron Snakes..
