So about nine months ago I discovered Roman and his group of talented painters over at MassiveVoodoo. After spending quite a bit of time reading his blog and the articles he had, I decided it was time for me to change my approach to painting.

My technique before the switch could best be described as make a mess and spend time fixing it. This often left me with results that were sub par and blending that was not quite good. So after reading Massive Voodoo I decided I would change to many, many, many, extremely thin layers. Along with this I have forced myself to use higher contrast start to finish with my blends. Roll all this together with a two color Zenithal Lighting priming. This has been rather successful for me so far, but some of my fall back recipes require reworking. Up to this point I have managed to figure out what to do to create the blends I need to get the colors I am happy with.
Here are some models that are in an extremely early stage.

WIP: Eldar Guardians...Time for some troopers

So I figured it was time for me to get off my ass and post something. Since I have been concentrating on painting individual models I figure it would be a good time to take a break and do some units. We are doing a Ard Boys build up again this year and I am working on Eldar. So that means I am going to be painting Eldar. I already have quite a few models painted up for this army, but I am going to be starting over and replacing the old painted ones with new ones.

Here they are ready for new paint

Eldrad Conversion Painted and Finished

Well, here he is I hope you like him. Thanks to a fairly rules knowledgeable group of local gamers I was able to finish him during this weekends 40K tournament I was hosting at the FLGS. I turned in the pics over at Dragonpainting forums and know I just wait to see what they think. I also hope you like it as well. Maybe my next project will be a bit less intensive.
