eldar wraithblades

with ghostswords

I have constructed this squad of Wraithblades with only some minor conversion work. All of the Wraithguard and Wraithblades in my collection have a different combination of warp vane, spirit seal and collar design so that they are all unique.

date: 2013-present (work-in-progress)
components: Wraithblades, cork, Green Stuff
colour scheme: Craftworld Mymeara colour scheme (PDF), Basing colour scheme (PDF)

9. Using Photoshop, I edited the photo to correct the issues that I'd identified with my first pass of the ghostsword. I then used this image as a reference for my second attempt at painting the weapon.

10. I was very pleased with the second pass of the ghostsword; the NMM effect looks much cleaner now and by toning down the edge highlights it doesn't look so stark.

16. I used a Wraithguard transfer from the Forge World Eldar transfer sheet (now sadly discontinued) and added two freehand lines to turn it into the rune for the Wraithblades.
