EBomb's Shining Spear Exarch 6/20 - Completed 7/6
« on: June 20, 2014, 04:15:08 PM »
For my entry I will be painting a slightly converted Shining Spear Exarch.  This exarch will be built out of salvaged pieces of used and poorly painted shining spears that I bought for cheap.  I plan on using a dark eldar jetbike canopy to convert it in a way that I think will look cool.  If I have time I will paint some other shining spears to go with it but the primary piece to be judged will be the Exarch.

Ok, he is assembled, primed, and ready to be painted.  I did make a slight change.  One of the models I picked up was the metal Autarch on a jetbike.  I replaced the exarch's normal laser lance with the lance that comes with the Autarch.  I think it will be a good way to represent the Exarch's star lance.  The Autarch only gets the regular laser lance and I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with that model anyway.  I primed the rider white and the jetbike black, mostly because getting an even looking white is hard and I want several parts of the exarch to be white.  I wanted the deeper/internal parts of the jetbike to be black.  I'm going to leave them seperate for now, I think it will be eisier to paint that way.

The bike is almost done.  I still need to do some highlights on the black, finish the gems, and put several more coats on the shuiken cats.  Thats all I had time for today.  Peace.

The jetbike is done and I got the base colors down on the Exarch.  I hope to finish him this weekend!

I was able to finish the Exarch this weekend, I'll post the finished pictures closer to the end of the contest.  There is still a little time left so I'm going to paint up a few more shinng spears to go with him.  I assembled and primed 4 of them at the same time so I'm already off to a good start.  I plan on painting them just like the exarch.  I got the base coats down on the bikes.  Here is the guy I'm currently working on.

Completed 7/6

Here is my completed exarch.  I wanted to keep the shining spears colors of blue and white but I really wanted them to shine so I tried to give the bikes a tron type look.  I didn't want the riders to look exactly the same as the bike so I just gave them a bright blue highlight.  I wanted the lances to really stand out so I left them bright white.  I'm happy with the way they turned out.  I don't like basing the clear flying stands, I just think they look better clear on the table while gaming.  Also, sorry for the giant pictures in my previous posts.  I didn't realise just how big they were showing up, I compressed the following pictures.

I was able to finish 2 other Shining Spears to go along with the Exarch.  Thanks for the complements so far, I hope you guys like the finished Shining Spears.
