I finished this as part of my Striking Scorpions squad and won first place at the online painting competition held by GWFanworld.

Biel-Tan - Armies on Parade

Blood runs... Anger rises... Death wakes. War calls! The title of my board for Armies on Parade 2019. Meant to represent the Biel-Tan swordwind recapturing an old Eldar-planet, a paradise burned down. It won me silver overall and also the categories Best Painted and Monsters & Machines.

Aeldari Autarch

I painted this one up for Everchosen 2019. The cloak offered a good opportunity to turn wild with freehands and the vines and thorns with drop-shadow. The feathers were quite a challenge as I wanted them to be highly reflective. The model didn't make the first cut in store, so it didn't progress at the competition.

Aeldari Autarch cloak

I had to paint a little side-project while working on my Striking Scorpions. Something awesome and something to complete in much less time due to being a single mini. I included pictures of the entire process that I went through.

Aeldari Vyper Jetbikes

Biel-Tan Vyper Jetbikes in all their glory. I liked the idea of the pilots and gunners having these velvet soft jackets in something that might or might not be bright leather. At first I thought of painting the gems on both Vypers differently, then decided against it.

Aeldari Vyper Jetbikes

I decided to finish my remaining two Vypers and since I have changed my style and improved on my freehands over time, these two both are painted with the usual mottled effect and the 3d drop shadow effect on the vines.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
