The Dave Perry collection: Rogue Trader Eldar part 1

Dave has quite a few of Jes Goodwin's Eldar in his collection, harking back to the very first Rogue Trader releases. So many in fact that I've decided to divide his Eldar between two posts. Notice Dave has decided to keep the edges of his bases black. You may recall that Fraser Grey did the same thing - simple but very effective.

These particular Eldar are an absolute riot of yellow - Dave has done Eldar in colours other than yellow as you'll see from the next post! In my limited painting experience yellow is a particularly difficult colour to do well, and Dave's results are stunning.

  1. These eldars are pure jewels and the paintjob is really up to the models (just look at the one with voice amplifier). This yellow has such a good contrast with the darker parts.
    I am about to paint these very same models and was balanced between light or darler tones but this series of photo has made my choice, Birght it is !
    Congrats Dave.
