Their sword arms are magnetized, so maybe they are technically unarmed. The first batch of Harlequin Troupes are done.

It’s great to see a batch complete. Since the last update, the 6 riders and all the weapons were completed as well. As a finishing touch, the windows were detailed. I am always impressed with the magnetization on these. The ball magnet allows for articulation and the tiny magnets are well placed to fit the riders.

Now it’s time for infantry.

The main bodies of the Star Weavers are done. Just the magnetized crew and cannons are needed to complete the models.

Technically, these might be more at home with an updated Orange Diamond Harlequins post, these came with the Eldar (though a bit later), so I’m keeping the pictures in the same commission.

We are back to painting diamonds with an airbrush on vehicle hulls. I sometimes have the foresight to record what I use in my colour schemes and this time it has certainly paid off. They are from the same client who painstakingly magnetized a bunch of weapons, the Star Weavers, and bases. The bases have resin chunks of Eldar themed flooring and there are a bunch of troupers to do too.

I forgot to take pictures of these when I finished the first half. Then I finished another 5 and it became 10 minis. I will be switching to Harlequins from here for a bit.

I got around to finishing the last stand for my first regiment of Knights. Red and white for this. I’ll be trying other colours for the other units of Knights.

Hot on the heels of the Normandy, I start the next project, Aeldari. This is a mix of Striking Scorpions and Howling Banshees. A spin off of the Harlequins I just finished. I started this off with the first 5 Striking Scorpions.

This time, we have a very saturated scheme. All the colours, even the golds, are very vibrant, almost to the point of a comic book kind of scheme. I have not painting gold without my standard silver highlight in a very long time. Just letting different golds highlight each other makes them pop in such a natural and clean way. I think without the full saturation of the other colours, letting the golds stay gold wouldn’t work as well. This is going to be a very pretty number of Aspect Warriors.

Just wanted to show off what the army is looking like so far. The infantry is done, so next is the knights and light cavalry. The painted models so far are 3 units of Men-at-arms, a trebuchet, and 2 stands of heroes.

The final unit of Men-at-Arms is done for my first 1000 points of army that has been printed. There will eventually be brigades worth of men-at-arms, but for now we will continue on painting knights.

This third unit I decided on a different colour scheme, yellow and turquoise. It’s definitely a different scheme than what I have done on many other models, including Harlequins. Turquoise being an uncommon colour in my repertoire.
