PostSubject: Thoughts on my Colour Ideas?   Fri Jan 05 2018, 22:23

Hello everyone.

I'm curious how everyone here feels about rather unusual paint schemes.

I know DE tend to be all about extreme highlights, hard lines, and dark colours... But I was thinking of trying to incorporate a lot of brighter blues/purples.

So far I've done a test venom where I based it Naggaroth Night, with a subtle drybrush highlight of Xereus, then drybrushed Temple Guard blue around all the edges with an edge highlight of Baharroth, and I did the markings in Evil Sunz Scarlet.

Tonight I'm going to try painting one like a galaxy using mostly stippling, which would completely remove all the edge highlighting that's normally included, and the cool markings people like to freehand on their vehicles. Do you guys think this would look weird? Would it not feel like Dark Eldar, or do you think it might be a cool idea?

yo can do what you want, ultimately. If you think it looks nice, then it does Smile

The Venom in Blue looks very classy in my opinion, and very in character with dark elf classic tones.

The Galaxy Venom is a nice idea I think. Dark Elves don't look like über fans of uniformity but more of a stylish kind, prone to show that bit of individuality which is a mark of pride and self esteem. You know, kind of "pimp my ride"...

I think this sounds great. I really like Evil Sunz and was actually hoping to incorporate it into my own army's color scheme, although with armor / vehicles being a more green-blue. Post pics! : )
