Back towards the end of 5th I had developed an all deep strike Grey Knight army that I had a blast playing. It was unusual, it was powerful, and it was unpredictable which made it a blast to play. But the competitive GK builds have gone back to the static gun lines that I find boring.
With the new Eldar book I've found myself enjoying the game again, and in need of some hobby time. So I decided to completely rebuild and repaint my entire Eldar army. Call me crazy, I know I do, but I know that over the years my painting skills have developed dramatically and I can't wait to see how they turn out with adding an airbrush to my collection of tools.
Above is the picture of some guardians just from the 4 man box that I'm using to test out my paint scheme and the best way to paint them. After watching plenty of videos and lots of tutorials I think I might have learned something ;)
To the left you can see two different methods I was testing for masking. The guy on the left is using BluTack and the guy on the right is using Vallejo Liquid Mask (some of which has been peeled away.)
The Liquid Mask has quite a few problems I noticed, it tends to dry rather quickly, so if you're trying to apply it and it starts to dry, then it'll start to peel off during application. Then it is also a pain to take back off, and if you're working quickly is less forgiving and will begin to pull paint off. I think I'll be sticking with Blu Tack in the future for most of my masking needs.
