Sod Off! Eldar Jetbike Gang WIP

Here’s some progress pics on where my Eldar Biker Gang is headed.  (I’m determined to beef up the “eldar” tag on this blog!) The above picture shows my mohawk biker expressing himself as he zips by the enemy.  I carved down a hand and added some greenstuff to be the rest of his fingers curled over.  It works but would work better if that middle finger were longer. Three riders awaiting paint.  They’ll be green with black jackets overall.  These are made from various buts from various Ages of the Imperium (I’ve been in and out of Warhammer since the 80s). The Rifleman.  I think of him as on the hunt for trophies with his long rifle across his lap. The unit Warlock.  An old Harlequin High Warlock biker and an old Harlie lead canopy. He has a DE Wych weapon in hand as his singing spear and he steers the bike by sheer willpower.  This model may also double as a Solitaire or Farseer on bike as needed.   Of course, I do have THIS Farseer model.  Or warlock with witchblade, as needed.  This model is truly Frankensteined out with bits.  He’s got parts from the guardian bikers, a foot-sloggin’ guardian’s back, dire avenger sword arm and utility belt (making up his lower back), a DE Reaver head, and a dark elf corsair’s chest piece.  And his core is all greenstuff, around which his body’s been built.  I like his look, overall, especially the dome head with flailing ponytail. * * * It’s been great working on minis this week, but Real Life is starting to notice I’ve been missing, so I’m not sure when I’ll get back to them again.  Hopefully in the coming weeks I can at least get them painted up and finished as a unit.

  • Looking good! I really like the Warlord model you’ve got. They all have character though, which makes it a cool looking unit.

      Thanks. I try to make everyone unique and give them all some personality of their own. Of course you can’t do that with all units, but i try. :)

  • Nice work. It’s fun to field a conversion heavy army even if it does take much longer to complete! I like the green and black, are those the colors you’ll be using for the whole unit?

      yeah, i love converting, it’s half the fun! gives your guys more character, i think. and yes, green and black for my “green hornets” bikers. i’m going to make my life easier by keeping the paint scheme easy on the bikers too: basically green with black jackets, wash and dry brush, done!
