I mentioned in my previous post that I was thinking of adding some Eldar to my Dark Eldar army, and that I wanted to model these additions as Harlequins.
Browsing the internet for inspirations, and different checkered designed that I thought I'd have a chance of painting without it looking horrible I came accross this wonderful converted Harlequin avatar (from 4 years ago). There's even a forum post by the painter showing how he converted the model here. Click on the picture to see a larger version.

Colour scheme wise I'm not fully decided, but I am leaning towards a black undercoat start, with light purple (as in the converted harlequin avatar above) and bleached bone as a contrast colours, on shoulder pads, and small checkered areas.
Hopefully the new units will stand out as different, while still blending into the army with the dark colour scheme, and the shared purple colour.
Trying to find some cheap war walkers from ebay, but I may just have to bite the bullet and get come from GW. Painting wise I have to finish off the blast bits of my Dark Eldar (Razorwing Flocks, Blasterborn & the Baron) to make way for these Eldar.
Are allies making into your painting table ? What do you use for inspiration for colour schemes and conversions ?
