The problem with the hard designs is that the Eloi, or at least the models they are inspired by, have more of an organic theme/feel. The hard angles seem to be a bit opposite to that.

Regarding the infantry, the weapon for the Warper looks great, the microwave gun needs some tweaking, I feel it needs to look a bit more nasty, but I guess that could also be done through detailing. :)

All look like a good start to me.

With the bike, I agree with M, the rider should have more of a sports-bike stance rather than a moto-cross to look faster. I actually quite like the sharp lines (and it would paint up well) but I think the whole fairing could be a little larger so the rider is properly protected maybe ? Was wondering if a pair of horizontal stabilizing fins just in front of the riders legs, (roughly where the rear blister is currently) might give an opportunity to add a subtle curved silhouette from above ?

Any chance any of these guys might have a lance-type weapon ?

The other infantry looks good. I assume you will be modifying the armour a bit ? They look like they need a bit more bulky armour than the other Eloi troops.

For the bike, While I can see what people are saying about the hard lines, what I keep noticing is the lack of small wings off the sides. I liked blips idea of putting wings on it, but further forward than would be expected.

I'd also really like to see a tail on the bike. Something akin to this old Eldar bike conversion.

Might differentiate from the source material more as well.

For the Eloi in general, what keeps putting me off is the size of the cone heads. Really wigs that was toned down just a little bit.

Modded the Warper's gun a bit.

He'll probably get some heavier armour and a helmet mod.

Sleeker gun, would make it easier to have these guys jump and run around. :D

Looking good!

i'm digging that gun. Helmet's obviously a placeholder (started with the trooper model I'm sure) but yeah...that needs to go. I'm quite interested in where this is going.

On the warper - heavier foot armour (think crazy flares) would tingle my aesthetics in a lovely way. Otherwise, a general bulking and smoothing around the back carapace (like linking those components back there all together with the center more of an integral bulge/blister than an independent piece) would be good.

I think the weapon's spot on, personally.

These images are more about getting the weapons looking right the armour and helmet aesthetic's have still to be applied.

Very nice!

Glad to see some more Eloi stuff.
Will there be some walkers some day?
Have a little dream of doing a space elf knight army some day when some suitable proxies.

Small spikes on the helmet and shoulders would be nice!

Looks good, but agree that they need some more bad guy look. Especially in 6mm, spikes, horns, darth vader/samurai/skull masks, guns with dragonface barrels and so on.

What kind of armour are they wearing? just normal flak stuff or super powered space armour? if the latter they look a little skinny, otherwise good
