Eldar Howling Banshees Showcase

Let’s wrap up these 12 Ulthwe Howling Banshees!

Beautiful, but inconceivably alien and vicious! Just like my ex! Heyoooh!

These were a blast to paint!

If you remember my Unboxing video, I bemoaned the twelve minis I had to work with because of all the FINECAAAAAST issues I had to work around.

But much like a beat-up, abused and neglected old car, I knew that once I had cleaned up the minis and gotten couple layers of paint on them, they would shine again.

It’s a painful process, but one that will ultimately be so much more rewarding.

For these twelve models, the hardest step after the cleaning and priming was those initial colors. I really had to grit my teeth and power through the basecoats.

At the time I was sure that here would be no way I could cover up all of the miscasts, but here I am now, looking back and just enjoying the finished product.

As a sidebar…

You can paint anything!

That came out of nowhere, but it is such a strong belief of mine, I need to keep repeating it, in the event, dear reader, that you ever feel discouraged and want to just put down the brush.

If I can make these FINECAST Howling Banshees look like they stepped fresh out of a magazine, then you can finish whatever you’re working on.

Don’t give up, y’all!

Stay tuned because I’ll be releasing a written guide to painting up your Howling Banshees just like I did!

Beautiful, deadly, and one heckuva dancer.

If you are working with Finecast, like myself, don’t worry!

A little cleaning and a couple coats of primer will give you a great bunch of minis to paint up.

Finecast issues aside, let’s talk about the Howling Banshees sculpts.

There are basically three poses that the six Banshees come in:

  • Crane kick and aiming the pistol (like in the picture)
  • Crane kick with pistol up, looking to the left
  • Crane kick with pistol up looking to the right

There’s also the Exarch, but I don’t count her, as she’s basically on one leg, like the others, except she’s jumping off a space marine helmet.

Because the posing is so limited, you really want to keep you lines clean and your colors blended!

The hair is great because it’s so textured. You can drybrush the hair with successively brighter red/orange colors, or you can highlight individual strands by picking each one out with a finely tipped brush.

Either works (I hate dry brushing hair so I’ll always paint each strand, if I can!), and it’s really up to the painter’s preference which technique to use.

I am using the Ulthwe color scheme for this commission, so I actually painted the model black and picked out the armor in Rakarth Flesh, rather than basecoating in bone colors and having to pick out the bodysuit in black.

Again, either way is perfectly fine to begin your Banshees.
