The Wyches are done .



Thanks for the comments guys Smile

Bold, brash and beautiful (?) was the intention from the start and it seems like I am succeeding at that. I appreciate that the colour scheme isn't everyone's cup of tea but that's how it goes sometimes.

I brought the army to a 1500 point tournament on Saturday and while the army is far from finished it looks good on the table.

I only need to finish 6 trueborn and some vehicles in order to have 1500 points fully painted, once that is done I will do an army shot in proper lightning conditions (i.e. not at night...) .

Really good stuff here. Lovely wyches, the blue on armour is very well done. Heck, the blue on your entire army looks amazing! Like Gob, I imagine it is a breathtaking army to be playing against.

Wow! I have a soft spot fpr brightly coloured Dark Eldar and you just punched it with a Hydra Gauntlet!

Awesome colours and great contrasts; I can't wait for more.

Again thanks for the comments,



With some sunlight outside I managed to take a better picture of the Wyches that is closer to what it looks like IRL.

I am considering cutting down on the static grass on the bases, it looks a bit too busy, but I am unsure. I will do the trueborn bases, hopefully tonight, with less static grass and do a side by side comparison shot.

Stay tuned Smile

B.

did you wash the gold elements with something? because they look a bit flat to me - maybe gryphone sepia, or just straight black wash - or whatever these are called now Smile - would give some depth to these elements. and maybe a silver highlight here and there?

but again - I really like the colour scheme - reminds me of High Elves somehow Smile

Hi,

There is a bit more depth to the metal than whats apparent on the pictures, however the desktop lights wash it out a bit.

I should probably go over everything with a thin wash just to shade a bit more.

Br,

B.

Seven Blasterborn or Kabalite Warriors with Blasters.

Its another night time, almost midnight , picture so its a bit dark but I got a nice picture after fiddling with the white balance on the camera. Changing lenses to a macro lens did wonders as well Smile.

I put a lot less static grass on the bases this time around and I like it a lot better. So now I got to go over the older bases with tweezers and remove some of the excess static grass.

First of five venom's completed.

I should have completed my Haemi and his wrack buddies since they are 90% done, but I keep postponing it Sad

Been a while since I painted any Dark Eldar, but here is a WIP.

I am painting for a Escalation League, a good way of getting back into the game.

Just a brief six year gap in the log...

It looks like some zombie Kabalites are sneaking up on the three still alive.

Are those the pilots from the Raider/Ravager kits? And what is the plan without any weapons on them?

The colour scheme looks so vibrant and is so well executed. I really like it.

The pilots are just painted separately from the raider/ravager.
