EPIC Painting

Epic Eldar Muster

My Epic Eldar army is ready for painting except some undercoating. I am still undecided on paint scheme. My instinct is to go with the purple and bone scheme that I used for my 40k Eldar (and BFG fleet). I can’t find a good way to highlight purple at an Epic scale though. For BFG I just drybrush and the 40k models were large enough for manual highlighting. I would rather not do that on a 6mm scale. We will see if inspiration strikes me.

The core of the army are the Guardians with five formations including 8 support weapons. All models are new style Games Workshop. I scraped together 7 Wraithguard bases, 6 Vibro Cannon support platforms and 12 Ranger bases. On the top right are the Wraithgate and a painted objective (a statue though it looks a bit flat from this angle).

The Aspect Warriors are next. This basically a full 8 base unit for each Aspect in existance (Howling Banshee, Striking Scorpion, Dark Reaper, Warp Spider, Dire Avenger, Fire Dragons, Shining Spears, Swooping Hawks). Each formation has two Exarchs and there is a separate Autarch as well. On the right side are (from the top) 12 Warwalker, 3 Wraithlords and three squadrons of 6 Jetbikes each.

Finally the toys. Top left are the Engines of Vaul with two Scorpions, two Cobras, two Storm Serpents and a lonely Void Spinner. Then two Revenant Titans (a Phantom and Warlock Titan aren’t pictured). On the right top are the flyers: 2 Vampires, 3 Phoenix and 3 Nightwings. A few Vypers and the Avatar are in the middle.

Bottom row are Falcons, Wave Serpents and the specialist tanks on the right (Doom Weaver, Fire Prisms and Firestorms).

All in this comes to about 10,500 points and should have all units at reasonable quantities for a 3k-5k game.
