Eldar Harlequin Showcase
I picked up a box of the new plastic Harlequins and Solitaire last Friday – totally unplanned but they were just so pretty looking and knew I had to paint some!
After I built them I realised that years ago I purchased a box of the metal Harlequins to use in games of 1st Ed Space Hulk (Citadel Journal 1 for those interested) and as usual never actually got around to finishing them. I dug through my bits box (more like crate..) and found the metal Death Jester, Troupe Master and Shadowseer which I promptly built. I decided to stick all the Harlequins to 32mm bases rather than 25mm to give them more stability.
Scheme wise I didn’t want to go full diamond as I discussed in my diamond tutorial yesterday. I used mainly glazes for all the colours on the models, using the gradient I’d built up in greys with the airbrush. They’re colourful but don’t make your eyeballs bleed with overloaded colours and diamonds.
Now for lots and lots of photos:
