Hi everyone, it's Fruitbear! Here are the Vampire Counts models I've painted in the past either because I really liked the models or just for my local Games Workshop monthly painting competitions. I've actually thought about re basing the models then decided against it as they are memories of my painting progression in recent years so here they are and here they shall stay... on the square bases. In these models you will probably see some hints of me starting to use Hawk Turquoise which eventually led me to using them as the spot colour itself for my Skeleton Warriors in my previous post. Hope you all enjoy the models!

This will be a 4 part showcase of my Iyanden Eldar. They are showing their age, with regard to the paint scheme, and my techniques, but these go back a few years now! Also a little bit of minor damage from excessive game play is showing. Note that this set does not include the 30 Avengers which are missing in action right now... haha :D

Part 1 of the showcase covers all the "yellow" infantry / foot based models in the collection, so without further ado... enjoy!

As I mentioned before, I want to add some terrain pieces to my display board. I've bought Promethium Relay Pipes and a Manufactorum. By now I've started painting the pipes, which will also serve as test pieces for the paint scheme I have in mind for the buildings.

I wanted to go for a dark, muted red with a metallic sheen. I've picked out some details with dark grey and brass, but didn't paint every detail in the same way that I would have painted a miniature. It's just terrain after all, it shouldn't steal the show from my paint jobs. Plus I want to get these pieces ready as fast as possible, so I can go back to painting actual models. I can always add more details later.

What do you think? Would you like to see a tutorial for this paint scheme?
