Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Eldar (Aeldari) Gallery by Hendarion

Welcome to my personal gallery showing my Eldar (Aeldari) miniatures from my Craftworld Ynn'eal-Tan, an Ynnead-focussed spliter-fleet of Biel-Tan

Eldar Biel-Tan Wraithknight

I decided to pimp up the white surfaces a little more with the same 3d effects for the thorn-pattern to look like engraved.

Forge World Eldar Phantom Titan

I finally finished my Forge World Phantom Titan for my Craftworld Biel-Tan / Ynn'eal-Tan. I started assembling and painting this model in 2012 shortly after it's release and it took more than 350 hours of work in total. The motivation to finish this model had been very low. But Warhammer Fest came to Düsseldorf and I got it done for the show and won bronce!

Eldar Howling Banshee Exarch

I finished the Exarch for my Biel-Tan / Ynn'eal-Tan bladestorm to accompany the squad in order to hand them in for Golden Demon at Warhammer Fest Europe 2018.

Eldar Phantom Titan knee rune

The other side of the knee with the rune of Biel-Tan. Also painted in NMM (non-metallic-metal) with a drop-shadow to give it more defition and elevation.

Eldar Phantom Titan - knee with rune of Ynnead

I painted a rune on the side of the Phantom Titan's knee. It's the rune of Ynnead which is the Aeldari god of the dead. Painted in NMM gold (non-metallic-metal) with a fake drop shadow to give it a 3d effect.

Eldar Phantom Titan pilot and cockpit

The cockpit of the Eldar Phantom Titan with the pilot seat. I kept the armour green as the rest of the titan to fit the Craftworld. The surrounding shall reflect bright wood or wraithbone. With contrasting deep orange gems.

Eldar Phantom Titan holofins 3D

Because a simple vane pattern wasn't popping enough. I think adding a fake 3D effect helped massively to give it an impressive look.

Eldar Phantom Titan holofins

I decided that going for just plain white holofins would be a too boring waste compared to the rest of the detailled body of the Phantom Titan and thus have been exprimenting with a thorns patter which would be subtle enough to still give them a white feeling.

Eldar Striking Scorpion armour progress

My Striking Scorpions, fitting in shrine green and black undersuit as all my newer aspect warriors. Black areas partly done, green done.

Eldar Wraithknight backfins and gems

60 more gems to do until this Wraithknight is finally finished and may serve my Biel-Tan swordwind Aeldari.

Imperial Fists Space Marine Leviathan Dreadnought

Finally finished this Leviathan Dreadnought in awesome Imperial Fists yellow! That thing is a monster. I wasn't aware of how big this beast actually is because I was painting the parts separately. But boy, it is huge. Equipped with Cyclonic Melta Lance and Siege Claw.

Imperial Fists Primaris Space Marine Hellblaster

Not a Golden Demon entry for sure and unusual plasma gun colour, but I had to paint one of these guys. Straight from the Dark Imperium box a Primaris Hellblaster to support my other Space Marines. Now only the rest of the squad needs to be completed.

Space Marine Leviathan Dreadnought claw

Some heavy steel claws for the Leviathan, painted in NMM

Space Marine Leviathan Dreadnought cyclonic melta lance

I heard ya like big guns? :D I still need to apply weathering to the black areas, so lots of scratching to do and that little bump right in the middle

Space Marine Leviathan Dreadnought shoulders

It's kind of sad that all the interior details of this Leviathan will not be visible when the weapon-arms will get attached. At least it's magnetised!

Space Marine Leviathan Dreadnought hips

Just a minor update on some heavy support Leviathan Dreadnought for my Imperial Fists Space Marine chapter. Currently I'm done with the legs, hips, armour plates and backpacks. Upper body interior mechanics still need to be painted and the weapons. There's light at the end of the tunnel.

Eldar Lynx with Pulsar - basecoat

I really gotta get forward with my Swordwind army and that means I need some heavy hitting long-range-support. The Eldar Lynx is a pretty solid choice for that and that allowed me to practice some more green Biel-Tan marble-pattern texturing. Freehands still missing as this is heavy work in progress and far from finished.

Eldar Nightwing basecoat

I've finished with the green marble pattern and white panels for my second Nightwing. Next up will be freehand thorns with drop shadows and Craftworld specific iconography.

Eldar / Aeldari Wraithknight

My Ynnari force of the Biel-Tan splinter fleet Ynn'eal-Tan needs some heavy support. I'm satisfied how the marble-pattern and thorns turned out thus far. But I'm not finished yet.

Green Biel-Tan marble pattern

Many people asked me how I do my green marble pattern for my Biel-Tan / Ynn'eal tan schema, so I made a tutorial.

Forge World Eldar Nightwing Interceptor underside

The 2nd Nightwing to support my Ynnari force. The upper side will be typical Biel-Tan / Ynn'eal-Tan green and thorns.

Imperial Fists Devastator Space Marines

To support my side-project with some heavy support, I painted some Devastator Marines I got for cheap. I equipped them all with plasma cannons.

Imperial Fists Tactical Space Marines

A side-project of mine is to expand on my Space Marines as 2nd playable home-army. These are some basic troops to fill the ranks.

Age of Sigmar - Stormcast Eternal Liberator

This is one of the most basic Stormcast Eternal Liberator miniatures available and it got painted for a competition where everyone had to use this miniature. Painted entirely in NMM gold (non-metallic metal). I ranked 2nd place.

Salamanders Space Marine

This is one of the most basic Space Marines miniatures available and it got painted for a competition where everyone had to use this miniature. Painted in NMM (non-metallic-metal) to give it a shiny appearance. I ranked 3rd place.

Forge World Eldar Phantom Titan upper body

It feels like I am painting this thing for ages. But I wanted something spectacular. So I improved my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan color schema even more with marble patterns, drop-shadows and freehands.

Eldar Howling Banshee squad

The last metal aspect models from GW. The hair nearly made me go mad and took me most of the time of these models. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Eldar Warp Spider squad

Still 2nd edition models, because GW had not released new versions in 2016 yet. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Eldar Warp Spider

I've been experimenting with colours and I thought a glowing blue would surely made them pop. To contrast it, I selected a black and slightly rusted grey armour.

Classic Eldar Shrieker Jetbike squad

Classic Jes Goodwin plastic jetbikes from the 2nd Edition with metal shrieker cannon upgrades. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Eldar Dark Reaper squad including Exarch

At the time of painting the most recent version of the models. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Eldar Farseer

This Farseer was the last metal model and part of the Farseer with bodyguard box. I tried some provocative colors. Won a local GW painting compo and a compo at GW-Fanworld.de.

Classic Eldar Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Farseer

Probably one of the first Eldar-miniatures I ever owned. It is the classic version, a very nice miniature-design I think.

Classic Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Eldar Wraithlord

One of my first models using blending techniques. Classic 2nd Edition model.

Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Eldar Vyper Jetbike

I first painted it in 1998 with dry-brushing, but reworked it in 2008 entirely.

Classic Eldar Fire Dragon squad

I tried a little bit of a more modern coloring on these, but still something that was supposed to pop. 2nd Edition models. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Classic Eldar Fire Dragon

I painted this Fire Dragon as test to see if the colours would match my expectations. I like the firey, flamey look this guy got, so I went for a full squad.

Classic Eldar Dire Avenger Exarch

Painted in a very 1990-style schema. Not something I'd do again though ;)

Classic Eldar Dire Avengers

Two Avengers I painted in 2009 to complete the squad. 2nd Edition models. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Classic Eldar Dire Avenger squad

Squad painted around 1999, two more painted in 2009. 2nd Edition models. Part of my Ynn'eal-Tan / Biel-Tan Swordwind army.

Forge World Eldar Nightwing Interceptor

I started painting this in 2005, but added more thorns and a proper base much later. I won a local GW painting compo with it.

Forge World Eldar Wave Serpent

I customized the turret and added shapes to the front and back, since I don't like the standard Serpent turrent very much.

Forge World Eldar Scorpion Super Heavy Grav Tank Type II

I started painting this in 2010, but I will probably completely repaint it using a marble pattern.


Eldar Biel-Tan Wraithknight

I decided to pimp up the white surfaces a little more with the same 3d effects for the thorn-pattern to look like engraved.
