That is the perfect colour for poisoned wraithbone, killed it! That command raider looks mega slick as well.
I've had some GW snow lying around for ages and I'm scared to use it. How do you get it looking so good? I honestly assumed it came with instructions Embarassed

The first thing I do is paint the base top white. But even more importantly, the key is this:
Lots of PVA glue. Big globs.

Most of the time I'll do a second layer and either fill in gaps or make certain areas raised more (because snow fields are rarely level)

I really like your color scheme, it feels almost wraith like.

Thanks Doc.
I'm hoping to join my first 40k tournament this year, so I'll be trying to paint like crazy!


Gotta get done:
-Finish Wyches (mostly done already)
-Finish Venoms (2 left, plus 3 bases)
-Finish Scourges (halfway there)
-Complete 5 Hellions (plus 5 extra bases of painted-but-not-based Hellions)
-Finishing touches on razorwing
-Complete Ravager (currently base coated)

I was too, honestly. It seemed a bit poxy to me. After going back and forth for a while and looked at a few other paintjobs (not eavy metal), it started to grow on me.
The pose itself is very arrogant, as is the smirk, and i think that was the deal maker. Archons are insurmountably arrogant, and I think that really shows in the model Smile

I just don't like the cape. He's a millionaire playboy. Wear silk, not that crap

Yeah, I can see what you mean. But I guess this one values status and trophies more than fancy silks.
I understand your point though, and somewhat agree

I'm happy I got the second version of the archon model. It's one of my favorites.

I love me some Scourges. I remember when our Imperial Guard player used to call them Scoureges

Nice freehand work on the wing. I also love how different they all are. True dark eldar pride.

In the commorragh it would have to, I'd say. Otherwise you'd likely be dead.

Ah yes, arrogant pride, one of the seven greatest Virtues of the Dark Eldar.

Anyway, like the albino batwings, they turned out great on those scourges.

Thank you, friend.


Next up - Raider.
Question - This will be the Raider that belongs to the Court of the Archon, and I don't currently have a pilot crew model there (insteadm the archon model is placed there to represent his unit being inside).
Should I put a crew member there, or leave space for the archon to be placed?
con crew member: Perfect space for representative model
pro crew member: more accurate to fluff, perhaps archon won't ride


What do you guys think?
