Kind of the way the spacemarine beaky helmets are all part of the faceplate, just without the forward point.

    cheers kris tried it but it made the face look too fat and lost the ear edging pinched your medieval visor theme witha bit of a slant tho.

    One, go for a streamlined look. Tighten that beak curve more in line with the forehead curve of the helmet, and make the beak tip shorter.
    A bit along the lines of this:

    Two, shed some weight on the beak to make it look less massive. Some raised rims to shape the larger form of the beak, but with beveled, sunken sides. Maybe with a raised middle rim? (as the pic seems to have a clean front section)

    Attachment 12829
    cheers Meph tried the head scale is spot on and going with the vent theme only put my own slant on it the vent on the art work would have been a bit too much almost noise marine like.


    anyway here's what i have come up with what do we think now, no kroot lookalikes now lol
    also rounded out the intakes on the jaw below the ears more like it i think.

    Brilliant work!
    You are capturing the look of the Eldar really well and without simply copying a mini. I love how this just keeps getting better and better!

    here are a few shots of the back and the wing sockets fresh off the stove and in need of some fine tunning the gem and the spikes at the bottom im really not sure of so expect them to change radically in the next day or so.










    the addittion of the wing sockets also raises the wings up

    Cassar,

    How large is your disc/belt sander? From your pictures, I'm estimating a 6" disc and a 4" wide belt? I'm looking to get one for myself and wanted a general idea of how large or small a machine to get.

    That Eldar is looking very Swoopy Hawkish! Well done!

    thanks for the help all, those files where especially helpful blood. am nearly done the hands are half way, one of the wing tip thingys had to be shortend to match the other cant believe i missed it, spent most of the day elbow deep in a sink of luke warm water sanding, advantages being soft smooth hands and what looks like a £1000 manicure
