Prot’s New Aeldari Craftwords (Eldar) for 2022: Part 1 Choosing Craftworld Colour Schemes.
Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I did an update, and frankly I’ve sold quite a few projects off. I’m down to my large Black Legion chaos army, and I had a lot of little bits, and partial units left over from various Eldar projects, and since I got the Eldritch Omens box set, I thought…. why not paint up the Eldar stuff I have and see where it goes?
Well that idea got away from me, and I did several repaints below:
And this is where I decided that although a lot of friends really liked the blue/black hex pattern, I honestly was tired of it and wanted something that looked like a Sci-fi scheme, but it had to be… ‘gritty’. Most of my Eldar had just been too bright. So here is my new Craftworld:
So there you have it. More to come, and I just got my first game in with the new codex. I’m leaning towards Ulthwe for now as they were the first Craftworld I ever did and Eldrad is… Eldrad!
Most importantly I can see doing this scheme for a while and I’ve written out the recipe after many tests, so this should be largely reproducible over a large variety of models!
Thanks for checking in!
