I wanted at the time a female Seer Council for my Eldar, which GW didn't do at the time. The female Dark Eldar were perfect for the job. No shuriken pistols at the time either so I had to do some cutting and transplanting to make it all come together. In the end, I was happy with the work.
My Eldar Guardians had a Dark Elf feel to them. In the rules at the time Guardians could go close combat (really, who would have done that). I had plenty of spear men from my Dark Elf project left over so I made the spear the close combat weapon.
White, what can I say, not an easy colour to work with. Because I varnish all my figures, white does not deal well with it, becoming slightly yellow from the varnish (not the colour, just the fact that the varnish dries that yellowish colour).
