Right, first update with a WIP of the Scorpion:

So far so good. The grey panel lining is done with Adeptus Battlegrey, and the yellow is built up with Iyanden Darksun, Golden Yellow and Sunburst Yellow.

Scorpion is finished. The guns are done in Dheneb Stone, a Gryphonne Sepia wash, and then highlights in Bleached Bone. The gems and cockpits are built up with Mechrite Red, Scab Red, Blood Red and Blazing Orange. The colour scheme for the Falcons will be much the same and they're next up.

looks awesome, I like the colour scheme too.

This thread keeps reminding me that I need to start my own Ulthwe TOEG, so keep up the inspiring work :)

Striking colour scheme. The gems add that Eldar ooomph. Good to see that some of us are making progress.

The Falcons are done :)

Which means my TOEG goal for this month is complete! O0

I'm working on some FW Firestorms as a bonus unit, they're also for an Aeronautica Imperialis campaign that's running. I'll post them in here when they're done - currently trying to repair the scatter lasers which mostly snapped off in transit. Trying to reconnect warped resin parts that are less than 1mm thick is a royal PITA...

You've really pulled off the black and yellow combo that I think is a difficult scheme, two difficult colours.

And I feel your pain about firestorms, I went through a whole heap of them to get a few complete models. I won't buy anything that thin again in resin, not worth the effort even if they do look nice.

Oh yes, this was definitely a learning experience. Although I did eventually manage to get all the guns repaired. They're not all 100% straight but I'm going to call it at this point because I will actually go insane if I try to do that again. :)

Thanks for the comments! Firestorms have been sprayed black but I'm away with work the next few days so we'll have to see if they get done by month's end.
