Located in the satellite realms, the Endless Labyrinth has resisted to Commorragh domination due to a simple reason: visitors cannot access the core of the labyrinth without being invited. Only those who live here for years can manage to find a proper way to travel through this independent city. By the way, the members of the Kabal pledged their alliance to Vect as they came to the conclusion that even if Vect cannot reach them, he can simply choose to destroy their entire city in the blink of an eye.


Here below the beginning of my humble work.
I began with 20 kabalites and 20 wyches. Some of them were seen in the painting / modelling section.






Next step should be one raider and one venom.

Feel free to comment Smile

They look great! I did a somewhat similar scheme except yellow instead of red. I really like how your red contrasts with the armor. Can't wait to see how it transfers to your venoms and raiders.

Brightly coloured DE are really difficult to paint, but you nailed it. La classe !

@trystis: i've seen your Project Log. Our color schemes are very close, such as Ravenizer's one ( see here: http://www.thedarkcity.net/t7229-kabal-of-the-sundawn )

@Herbert: merci. It seems that beige is the summer tone for DE this year Wink

A very elegant and deadly looking paint scheme Twisted Evil

The brambles are awesome, simply but deadly effective in addition with your color scheme.

Thx all for the positive comments.
I was wondering whether it was "too clean" or not. As I don't use linings along the edges nor weathering (I am not good at them), it could look a little bit too smooth (or maybe too "civilized" as facelessblossom suggested it), which is not so realistic for a tactical military transport... maybe I'll give a try later when the full army is painted.

NB: I don't have the budget for an airbrush at the moment, so it was painted with sevral layers of heavy diluted rakarth flesh, and the result is not too bad.

We are eldars after all, we can look pretty sometimes ^^

Anyway, the idea of some scratchs on the painting using black and Leadblecher (or boltgun) seems fine to me.

Personally i really like the smooth clean look. I would leave it as it is. It works really well

I think having nice ans clean transports is a good thing and nice looking. Just pretend that we've sprayed the hull with NeverWet!

They look very good, I like that freehand on the venom. Will be nice to see how the raiders will look in the end.

I was a bit fed up with painting this week so the raiders are not ready but...
A friend of mine gave me a full box of old school dark eldars and some old vehicules he retrieved when visiting his parents. Among them, there was an old raider model. So I made an offering to Supaglue the God of Miniatures Conversion and I obtained this:

BADASS! Did you use the old plastic Reaver jetbike splinter rifle for the piece mounting the sail?

btw: I'm totally stealing this! I wanted to do an old-school raider for my archon as a nod to my old 3rd edition army and will probably do something quite similar to this. Twisted Evil

You're right Ev.Sp.Elves, the sail mount is part of the jetbike splinter rifle. I also used the old jetbike top cover for the side lances mount and protection.
Perhaps I should add some armored part on the sides to illustrate the reinforced hull of the ravager (but I don't have a pair of the old ones available). I may be able to craft some equivalent parts with cardboard or plastic card, but the new ravager model is not really different from the new raider. Anybody has an idea about that?

Outstanding LSK, your Raider looks great, especially with using such a light colour! So does the Venom, for that matter.

As for the "improvements", a lot of those just snap off anyway I find. I usually just do some weathering and the gems and call it a day.

Well done.

Cheers.

LSK - what colour are you using for your hulls? It looks gorgeous!

The hull is a thin layer of Rakarth Flesh, followed by Agrax Earthshade diluted wash.
Then, I paint again some layers with diluted Rakarth Flesh to delete the Agrax "overflow" (idk how to translate "coulure" in english).
Highlights are usually made with Eldar Flesh DRY on the kabalites / wyches, but here I needed to dilute it with some water in order to be able to apply some linings... not very handy which could explain why I have problems with highlighting.
I tried Ushabti bone, but Eldar Flesh is a bit more yellow and shiny than the slight green tint on Ushabti.

And if somebody has a technique on how to make straight lines on the edges, please tell me!

I know a tip for you. The colors of the dry range are the exact same color as the citadel edge series. So if you want to make edge highights in those exact colours without thinning down the dry range you should just buy the same color from citadel edge.
