Kamui’s Showcase: Swooping Hawks

Hello all,

I’m taking new pictures of my finished models.  I have a new camera and in addition to getting better pictures of my collection I am using this as an opportunity to improve my photography skills.  Here is a squad of Swooping Hawks that I painted up a while ago.  My goal when painting these was to create smooth, subtle but effective highlights.  Overall I’m quite happy with how they came out.  They won first place in the squad category at the April Assault, a hobby oriented event at the FLGS earlier this year.

I’ve posted these on my deviantART page, where you can also see some of my other random endeavors.

Thanks for reading.  Let me know what you think!

  • Nice shots. It’s a great looking unit.

    • Thanks!
      I need to put together a decent light box. Right now I’m using a white box with some white paper, and it’s not really big enough for squads or vehicles. It also doesn’t diffuse the light well, so you can see I have some strong shadows falling across the two in the back.

  • Those look great! Hawks are meticulous models to paint, but you took your time and did it right. nice work!

    • Thanks! I find that most of the Eldar models take a long time for me to paint, that’s why most of my Eldar army is still unpainted.
