That's perfect, really emphasises the extra size of the voidraven too i think.

Indeed! Nice paint job and a very nice pattern, on both the top- and the underside;-)

Thanks; I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  Glad I had a spare little box of about the right size.

BTW you had to have some freakin stones to freehand those designs man... wanted to mention that.

Also don't you wish you could vectorstrike other flyers with those wings?

Thanks.  I really like painting freehand on my models - it's something to set them apart.  This pattern was not actually too tricky.  It's nice and large, and I was copying something else rather than designing my own.  The biggest challenge was keeping the right sort of flow across the curved surfaces.  I actually find trying to do small and intricate freehand much harder.

And yes, I do wish I could vector strike other flyers.  There used to be an Apoc formation of 3 Razorwings that could Vector Strike (only ground targets, I think).  It should definitely be in the rules.  They are Reaver pilots, after all.

Not sure I will generally field it like that (*so* many points) but it was vicious with the right victim.

Hey mate, did you use a brush to paint the designs on the bomber?

I'm liking how its looking. I haven't done any snow theme bases on any of my fantasy, so I am with Dark Eldar. I like your theme Smile

See, that is what happens when you have an AWESOME paint job ;-)
But like you described, it was the perfect matchup but do not let that weaken your trust in the Voidraven!

Yes. I do the decorations last, after the whole thing has been base coated, shaded and highlighted. I paint the basic shapes in blood red, and then go over with the orange (sometimes 2 coats, for a consistent finish). In a number of places I also need to neaten the edges afterwards with the dark red armour colour, because my hand isn't perfectly stead, especially for the pointy bits.

I do the white ones the same way, with a mid-gray undercoat.

They are a mixture:
-Some are copied directly from what 'Eavy Metal do, if I really like them (eg top of the Voidraven);
-Some are me trying to imitate the same general style by just painting freehard (eg my Reavers);
-Sometimes I doodle with pencil and paper until I find a design I like, then reproduce it on the models (my kabal symbol).

Ah, excellent! Thanks Smile
I just wasn't sure on the fluff of how things are supposed to be (because, you know... space elves are real)

It's also just occurred to me that there is a fourth sort of design:
-Some are GW transfers (often painted over to weather them or change colour) or freehand copies of transfers. Eg. the Prophets of Flesh hand on my Haemoncumistress's dress.

Ah, I see... To be honest, I've never been a fan of using transfers. But you've done well with it!

Latest update, some Beastmasters!


I've probably missed the boat a bit with these.  I had the idea about a year ago, when Beastmasters were still aweome, but they have suffered a bit under the new codex.  I don't have any beasts yet for them to master, but I could potentially try just field small unit with agonisers all round and no pets.

The best thing is, these were all converted out of bits I already had, so I didn't have to spend any money on them Cool

Love the beastmasters and the fact you made them out of spare bits is even better!
