The description perfectly demonstrates why the Eldar are so sad.  They can't even insult each other or give threats without making it fancy.  A human would have either just killed the other guy straight away or said something I won't type.

Great work here. I just started painting some scourge and I'm using this as the inspiration for their color scheme (hope you don't mind!). I'm thinking I might try to make a diorama version as well... when I find the time.

I agree, though the picture looks great, the Hawk doesn't really look like he's engaged in a fight. The scourge mask looks great in particular, it's very different to the GW models, but looks great. It's less stylised than the models, more clearly birdlike.

awesome work, loving your eldar pics. Is there any way you could do some more craftworlder pics? Your dark eldar work is great and all, but I would love to see more eldar stuff.

As a side note, I seriously hope when the eldar codex gets redone they look at the scourges for how to make the swooping hawks good again. I love the concept of the hawks, but they have suffered badly during 5th edition.

I am not asking for shard carbines or heat lances as they are dark eldar weapons, but I think allowing 2 models in 5 to have shuriken cannons, fusion guns or haywire blasters would be fine.

I guess this flies in the face of eldar convention that the aspect warriors all have identical weapons, but GW needs to allow the eldar a bit of flexibility for them to compete in the modern age of 40K. Either that or make their basic weapons better than a slightly improved lasgun. That is not worth 21pts in my book, even with the aspect warrior statline and jump infantry.

The contrast between the "pure" eldar and the dark eldar is done brilliantly....completely hightlights the difference between these long lost cousins :D EPICNESS!

This looks awesome. The Scourge needs to decide whether he wants a face-full of laser ;P

Very nice. Definitely a fight I'd like to see. :D

Nice, I'll have to show this to my fiancee, she has both Eldar and Dark Eldar armies...but no Hawks or Scourges, but still. Awesome work, btw.

Hawk's determination is adorable but I think the Scourge has the upper hand in this one here. Also, I love the details on Scourge's wings.
