Eldar Shrike Bomber finished by Addinarr Eldar Shrike Bomber finished by Addinarr
It's funny where a tiny 2.5 by 3.5 little doodle on a piece of scrap paper can take you....

Ok, I'm pretty sure I don't want to work on this anymore.

Edit:Sept 23: minor fixes. Sharper background.

Gorgeous. Love the sails - that's what they should look like, not actual sails damn it!

I agree, the Eldar sails are more like fins.  This is perfectly portrayed in this art.  Love it!

I must say this is one of the best pieces of 40k artwork I've seen, you should push yourself and do a Battlefleet Gothic style fight, maybe against dark eldar. Just a suggestion, I'd love to see it, and it would push the boundaries of awesome :D

all you need is a killer BG and this would of been 100% incredible.

The model is nice and the ship is well painted, but the background just takes me off too much and since its so low quality it makes me feel this piece is incomplete.
