JJ painting, Mordian7th here's the secret project mentioned a few weeks ago.
Let's start this post off properly.
While this idea was mine it was made better by several people I ran it by.
Originally was going to purchase one Eldar Wave Serpent and throw it up on ebay to help get my commission business noticed. My Love mentioned that there should be models on the sales page for sale instead of sold models. Gaming buddies Suijin, Bryan and Connor came up with the idea of having more than one Wave Serpent sold. Because its a troop transport people will want more than one. Suijin suggested to have them all painted the same. If someone bought them and liked them they can hire me to paint more models in the scheme. Running this by the other gamers later that night. Instead of five or six Bryan and Connor thought three would be better. Special orders were made at Fantasy Flight a couple of moments later. Picked one up that night. Needed two more. Of course everyone and their mom wants a Wave Serpent so Fantasy Flight had to wait for them to arrive. Unfortunately GW shipped one. Awesome Dave at Fantasy Flight contacted his GW Rep and said that he ordered two and one isn't going to cut it. Picked up the one they sent and had to wait til the next week to pick up the second.
Was terribly impressed with Mordian7th's Wraithknight painted up in Alaitoc colours. Plus I've always loved that Craftworlds mottled-blue colours. My Eldar Wraith army will be painted up in Alaitoc colours. Decided instead of learning how to stipple GW Alaitoc on my Wraith army I would practice on the Wave Serpents first. That's the saying: Practice makes Perfect.
These will be up for sale on my commission site for two months. If they don't move there I'll put them on Ebay for more to offset ebay cost. Something Suijin mentioned. Figure I'll charge between 180-220$ for these on my site. Then up to 250$ if they move to ebay.

|SOP (standard operating procedure). Wrote what bands I was listening to while putting them together. Put the date as well.|
|Wasn't sure what to paint the inside of the Wave Serpent. Wanted blue to go with that Eldar motif. Then it occurred to me. Inside painted Alaitoc Blue.|
|Both based Zamesi Desert. Left highlighted Ushabti Bone.|
