here are some pics of my first finished raider, I spent forever on it, just wanted to hear your opinions, it is not an incredibly original paint scheme, but I like it, critiques are welcome.

this is the most beautiful raider I have ever laid my eyes upon, infact -grabs eyes off of raider and puts them back in sockets- I think the only problem is the bottom where the hashnut copper comes up past the bottom. Razz

The yellow sail is a little bright for my taste - mainly i think because there's none of that yellow anywhere else on the model. Rune looks good on the front of the hull, did you consider doing the sail in the same colour?

The blue and gold is a classic combination but you seem to have given a nice twist by darkening the blue and lightning the gold, it look very striking. My only other suggestion, and it's being really picky, it to neaten up the highlights on the armour panels a little - it may look better in person as i know photos can make detail like that look more obvious than it is to the naked eye, but the first highlight could do with being a bit narrower (don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's bad, but narrower highlights is an area almost all of us can improve on, and it makes a big difference)

Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing the squad to go with it!

Sweet looking models. I was thinking of doing a black and gold theme DE detachment myself. I actually like the bright yellow sail. Plays to the lavish haughtiness of the DE. Nice work!

Great stuff, it's a really a clean work ! The only thing i'll try if i were you is making a tiny flesh colored lavish on the faces, it'll make the colors blend much better...

It may not be 'an incredibly original paint scheme', but it is very nicely done, congratulations! I think it looks great, and the yellow sail is the perfect touch to complement it.

Keep it up!

Cheers.

I like it, yellow sail included, though I'm curious as to how you'll paint your others - all the same sail or different colours?

Thank you every one for your responses, I will consider your suggestions, and what I am going to do with the rest of them, I am not entirely sure, I think I will do them all yellow, but I want to do them all different, so do some different textures, and patterns.

I purposefully made the edging on the raider bigger, I was not sure how good it would look if I made it the same size as what is on the warriors, I think with the next raider I will make them narrower, and try to make them a little neater, it can be challenging for me to make clean lines sometimes, I inherited my dad's shaking.

I am going to repaint there skin, I don't like the blending on them currently, I also forgot there earrings. Will repost pictures when I am done.

I actually have the squad done already, I will have to take some pictures and post them up tomorrow.

I always over highlight my models that are very dark in colors or black. Because I think the highlights are too subtle and weak. And when I do over highlight them, they look worse and like crap.

I think your highlight is good, on picture at least. Very nice job with paint job, I wish I could paint like that!

I love the yellow sail, but more yellow would be nice. I'm thinking of painting my new cabal in black and yellow theme, inspiration from your work!

This is a real improvement ! The red tattoo gives a nice effect.
