For a change of pace I built an Warhammer 40K Eldar Harlequin Shadow Weaver for a friend. I used to play years ago and there is a lot of neat stuff out there.

I wanted to try out some of the Turbo Dork Color Shift Paints that they had up at the game store. They were a little hard to work with and the blue I used really didn't shift (a couple of the other colors had a really neat effect). The two crew members on the back are magnatized for ease of transport.

the Games Workshop kits are easy to build and go together well.

Not familiar with the genre but nice job.  Lot's to look at.  What scale would you say that is? 40mm?

Thanks,

John

It is refered to as Heroic scale so the proportions on some of the stuff is a little off, espicially with oversized weapons. It is somewhere around 28-32mm.

Looks awesome!!! 

I used to love painting figures but haven't done it that much recently. Since I hit 50 my eyes just aren't what they used to be. I did buy an Optivisor which helps a lot, I should pull some out and see what I can get done.

thank you

I painted miniatures and gamed for almost 30 years, only got back into modeling about 5 years ago. I am extremely near sighted, the only benefit is that I can see well up close if I am not wearing my glasses.

Yeah I know what you mean. I'm near-sighted as hell, I'd take my glasses off too to see close up. Then I can't see a paint bottle on the table though. An Optivisor helps a lot.
