Harlequins Completed

























On my painting table, there's a tray of completed assembled miniatures, which I've sort of made a rule, that I should try to finish painting all of those miniatures before I begin to assemble anything else. That way, I'll think twice before assembling the next exciting model that comes along and neglect some of the models I've already assembled/based.
Of course, rules are meant to be broken...
These harlequins have been on my tray for a good few months now, being put on hold, partly because other exciting models like tau mech got my attention and partly because i was nervous to make an attempt on them, as the quality of deliverables on these guys are relatively of a higher standard.
Well, as seen here, eventually I put my foot down and got it painted, and painfully slow it was! Really, its all in the mind and when you put the effort into it and after the first model was done, the rest comes rather naturally.
It's gonna be exciting now that I have a completed harlequin squad to play and its equally exciting to see that my tray is empty again! More models on the way!
Thanks for viewing and comments are welcomed!

Those brilliant, lively colour really make the harlequins look awesome!

Those look incredible. I too have some harlequins, and I'll openly admit that I'm intimidated to paint them!

Damn, one of these days I'll have to beat your painting skills!

After that we can have a showdown of the best painted army in CM?

Hahahaha, they look so good, they look as if they just jumped out of the box cover!

Good Job!

They're beautiful ^^
I got my Harlequins from my brother as a Christmas present 1.5 years ago, and in the meantime I have assembled and painted 5 eldar tanks, 14 dire avengers, 1 farseer, 3 warlocks, and several warp spiders. But I never felt good or courageous enough to start the Harlequins, until recently. Stuck in my room in Dundee, where I recently moved from France, with only a limited palette, I gave a try at one of the models and I really love how it's turning out, this got me motivated and I'm finally going to get them done ^^
