Eldar: Rangers

I bought these Eldar Rangers in the same store closing sale as a number of other models about a year ago.  They are Finecast, and were a big pain to clean up.  Most of the gems has some kind of flash on them, for example.

I painted them months ago.  Looking at them now, that pain has mostly faded and I’m really happy with how they look.

The blue cloaks are the Reaper Ultramarine Blue colors I’ve been using as the accent color for both Eldar and Dark Eldar.  As I recall, I airbrushed everything blue shades and mids, then highlighted the cloaks and painted the orange armor, helmet, gun, and details by hand.

It makes for a pretty bad camouflage, but I really like the striking difference in the color.  The armor also ties nicely into the rest of the army.

The details on the rear are probably the weakest parts, but also the parts hit hardest by the cast quality.

I’m very happy with how this unit turned out, despite how much I hated them at the time.
