Below you can see my steadily growing collection of Eldar Harlequins.

Scheme wise I didn’t want to go full diamond as I discussed in my diamond tutorial. 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.

    Loving your Harlequins … assuming it was primarily used using an air brush?

    I created the gradient using two greys over a black, and then it was just glazes over those 🙂

    Did you fully assemble all models before spraying or leave some separate. Thanks really like your ideas great gallery

    Yeah fully assembled. If I did it again I’d leave the masks off maybe and spray them white rather than blending up to white!
    Thanks 🙂

    Hi great ideas loving the toned down colour scheme. What greys did you use (do you have a paint list) and in one post you said you used a false of black is this a wash?

    I start with black undercoat, then I use Vallejo grey airbrush primer (little bottle, colour of bare plastic) and then I have a large bottle of Vallejo airbrush grey primer that’s lighter (sort of resin grey coloured) 🙂

    And the glaze was made from black, airbrush thinner and glaze medium 🙂 sure there’s a black glaze you can buy somewhere though!
