I've managed to finish up my first 1000 points of Dark Eldar, just in time for Throne of Skulls doubles on Saturday Cool

I went for a (hopefully) bit different paint scheme that would stand out nicely, but still suit the Dark Eldar and look suitably sinister. Let me know what you think, constructive criticism always welcome.

Apologies for the distinctly average (at best) photo quality. I've only got my phone camera and it's not great.

The look pretty decent. Nice, solid work.

Starting work on some Hellions. Got the skyboards all painted up and then I hit a small snag. I'd left the riders off (always do with these sorts of things) and would usually use some bluetac and a spare base to fix them for painting. Hellions have angled feet! They wouldn't bluetac to a base and hold, so I had to try some pinning.
Never done it before but have to say, it's a doddle. I've already got drills for magnetizing so all it took was some paperclip and cork. Hopefully it holds them firmly enough for painting, and the pins come out the feet again easily enough when I've finished.

Well I've been making very slow progress the last couple of weeks. A bit of a stasis around the new codex probably, and waiting to see what comes. Now it's here I've definitely plenty to work on! Anyway, here are my Hellions all finished up, hope you like them!

Thanks for the encouragement guys! Now the codex is out I need to crack on scaling my army up to 1500pts of painted models. Starting with getting these gorgeous kits put together. I'm particularly excited about the scourges, they're just such nice sculpts!

Decided it's time to crack on with some brush work. I've felt a bit unmotivated and just mucked about with a bit of building and base coating, and I need to make some progress to get an army built up. So, two venoms are now well under way. I like running 3 venoms with twin cannons, and 5 man kabalites squads in each with a blaster. Flayed Skull gives them a lot of mileage with rerolls, ignoring cover and a 19" move! I can get heavy splinter fire wherever I need it on the board and it really helps digging troops out of cover.
I've got the first round of edge highlights on the green sections. I've got one more to go on top, then two rounds bringing the edge highlights up on the pink sections.

Damn I like your color selection. And you've kept a consistent nice quality. Grats, that takes effort.

My succubus is all finished up, hooray! Now I have all 3 HQ's painted up ready to form an Alliance of Agony Twisted Evil




My venoms from the previous post are all but finished too. Just the gunner to go on each one, so I'll get some photos soon.

@Lyijysiipi thanks dude. I took my time picking colours when I started Dark Eldar. I've always had a habit of picking quite muted colours and my models have never stood out on the table top. I decided this time I wanted something that popped without being too "in your face", as it's nice to have my models stand out a bit.

Damn, that's a really great looking army. Love your colour scheme, especially on the gliders and venoms. Amazing work.

That's a lovely succubus and a nicely painted force in general. Well done!
