eldar howling banshees

In totla I have fifteen Howling Banshees; most have been assembled as standard but there are a few that had some minor conversion work, including a male Banshee. There is a mixture of older metal models and the current plastic one; the designs are virtually identical so they fit well together. I have added various Space Marine helmets to the bases to represent the Howling Banshees carving their way through an enemy squad.

date: 2008-present (work-in-progress)
components: 11x metal Eldar Howling Banshees, 4x plastic Eldar Howling Banshees, Green Stuff, various plastic Space Marine helmets

Eldar Howling Banshee colour scheme
14. After several iterations, I have settled on this colour scheme for my Howling Banshees. The white helmet and use of a turquoise blue will help to tie in the colours with my Craftworld scheme. The bone coloured armour is fairly traditional.
