Hey!

So I've been working on my Dark Eldar since they were launched waaaay back in November and so far... well to be honest I havent got much done. Thats why I'm setting up this blog - to keep myself inspired and on target (and to hopefully pick up some tips along the way! :Cool )

I choose to theme my army on the Last Hatred (as featured in Decembers White Dwarf) primarily because their background was so damn creepy (even by Dark Eldar standards!) but also because their colour scheme was really striking.

So here's what I have done so far (apologies for the bad pics!):

a Talos


a squad of Wyches


a Raider


and finally a squad of Warriors


Currently I'm working on a Haemonculus and another Raider, which I hope to have finished by the end of the week.

So thanks for looking all and as always C & C is most appreciated! Cool

Cheers!

Really nice and clean edge lining on everything.
Perhaps it could benefit on an even sharper and lighter high-light as well.

Yeah I have been wondering lately whether the purple needs another step. I'll experiment on my Haemonculus when I get back from work and let you know how it turns out!

Cheers! I find that the white really does stand out with such a dark scheme. I may have to use more 'blank helm' heads on my next unit of Wyches just so I can paint more of it! Very Happy

So I've almost finished my first Haemonculus, I just need to work on his fleshcoat and he's done! Cool

You should totally get some zombie models (and convert them with 40k bits) to use as Wracks. Cheaper than finecast ones and it would totally fit the theme (these are the Kabal that practices a form of necromancy and binds the souls of their captives to their bodies after their death, aren't they?).

Looking forward to it...I like your white Talos helm so much I nicked it for mine, hope you don't mind Laughing

You've read my mind Nomic! Laughing Although after thinking about it a bit more at work today, I'm actually not going to use the corpse's as Wracks. I'm going to attempt something a little bit bizarre, but it should hopefully work. Watch this space! Cool

So my first Haemonculus is 99% done - I just need to get some more static grass and he'll be complete.

Once again please forgive the bad pictures (my camera is pretty old and needs replacing pretty sharpish!)





A couple of things to note. The highlights have virtually been wiped out by my bad photography, particularly on his face and hand. Secondly (and most annoyingly) one of his finger's have broken off - that's gonna be a pig to replace!

Next on my painting table is a small unit of Mandrakes which I hope to have done sometime next week.

Cheers!

I love the leather of his coat. Can you explain your technique there? What colours did you use?

Reading this WIP blog (plog? thing??? whatever) was quite disturbing for me as we have chosen the same kabal, same units to paint first (wyches, kabalites, raider, talos), our Hekatrixs and sybarites look almost exactly the same (we both did those arm swaps) and our raiders look near identical. wow. Great minds think alike huh?

Wow sorry guys! I thought I'd replied to you a both a while back but it looks like I hadn't. My apologies.

Cheers! The coat was done by following UK White Dwarf's Mandrake tutorial. Essentially its Tallarn flesh, 50/50 Tallarn/Dark flesh and 50/50 Tallarn/Snakebite painted like a patchwork quilt over the coat. Then wash the recesses with watered down 50/50 Dark flesh/Liche purple. Then paint 50/50 Tallarn/Rotting flesh in 'streaks' down the coat (its best to have the paint quite thin here.) Finally do the same again with thinned rotting flesh.

I hope that makes sense. If not I'll try and find the article online somewhere for you. Smile

@Archon Levitas: Lol! Thats kind of spooky! It's almost like that film The 6th day... wait are you my clone?! Suspect Laughing

Anyhoo, it took a while but the Incubi are all done bar the bases - I need more snow dammit!



Now that I've done some fun stuff It's back to more warriors, which hopefully should only take a couple of weeks.

C&C most welcome!
Cheers!

The Haemi is very nice. its making re think my own, who coat was not going to be flesh, but a black fabiric.

The incubi are also very nice. Simple and very well executed. Those will look great when they get on the table and starting collecting tokens!

Thanks GAR! Here's hoping that when I finally play a game with my DE, the Incubi show the lesser races whose boss! Cool

Well work has gotten in the way this past week and I haven't been able to do as much painting as I liked, but I do have 5 warriors done bar the bases. When I get back tonight I'll post some pictures up.

However, my main reason for posting today is the new Ur-Ghul model - I really cant stand it. I absolutely love the rest of the court but he looks like a bloody Scooby Doo villain! Does anybody have any idea's for a suitable replacement?

It doesn't have to be a GW model as let's face it, they wont be out of the cabinet very often! Very Happy

Cheers!

Ok It's update time! I've taken on some extra work lately so I haven't been able to do as much painting as I would like. However I have finished the second warrior squad and finally based the Incubi and Haemie:

Warrior Squad Two


Incubi


Haemonculus


Next up, will be the second Raider which should be done by Sunday (if I can stick to a dealine for once! Laughing )

Cheers for looking and as always C&C is greatly appreciated!

Good to see the update!

I like what you have going here. Colors are nice and clean.

Only critique is the skin on the warriors seems very flat. I think its the camera and not real life, but from the images the skin looks like it could use some shading.

Minor quibble.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Wow! So long time, no update! I really need to get better at this plog malarky! Very Happy

So I've slowly been painting through my stuff in the eight(!) months since my last update and I've even managed to play my first game with them! Most of the following models are in varying stages of completion with the vast majority only needing some snow on the bases and apologies once again for the bad pics.

So first up is a Ravager. He's complete barring a design on the sail:


Next, the second Wych squad:


Here's my second Talos, inspired by a piece of Warmachine art:


A better look at the actual Talos:


Some Trueborn...


...and their obligatory Venom.


I cant help but feel that their is something missing from the Venom. Any thoughts on how I can jazz it up a little?

And finally some WIP Raiders. Most are done bar the crew and sail designs:


So all thats left now is another Venom, 2 Haemies and my Archon and thats 1850pts fully painted!

Cheers for looking and as always C&C most appreciated!

Craig

Re: what's missing from the venom, most schemes seem to go with some kind of runes or patterning on the main body of the vehicle. You've not done that on your raiders and I can understand why because I don't think they need it with the way you've highlighted them. The venom has larger areas of plain black though, and could perhaps benefit from something (not too much, I'd say keep it a more subtle shade of the purple you've used to highlight the edges)

All in all though I'm really impressed, it's a really well executed paint job with crisp highlighting and creative use of white, in fact your incubi have inspired me to paint the pectoral plates and helmets of mine white.

Cheers!

Thats a very good suggestion about the Venom! I'm thinking maybe, two jagged lines that start from the two tips on the nose, that intersect near the canopy. Possibly in a pale blue to tie it in with the rest of the army, since the hull itself is actually a very dark purple that doesnt really show up on camera.

What do you think? Too much maybe?

Two jagged lines could work, though be careful not to curve them if you're using a jagged theme. Don't be afraid to do something off-centre either, the model doesn't have to have a symmetrical paint job. What you could do is pick a rune for your kabalites, one for wyches and one for your coven etc. My Incubi venom is just going to have the one rune, curving around the canopy and down one side.

The blue would contrast nicely and tie the venom into the larger army theme you've got going, you'd just need to be careful not to overpower the more subtle paint job you've already got going with too much bright blue. If you're struggling for inspiration there's nothing to stop you copying the design off a raider prow you're not using.

Just a quick update whilst I'm supposed to be working. lol!

I played my second game with my Dark Eldar the other day and managed to scrape through another narrow win in what was a very close and enjoyable game! I'm starting to understand how the army works as a whole and I'm having a blast(er) whilst doing it - man the Dark Eldar are fun!

I've also managed to paint the second Venom and I've painted some markings on the first. I'll post up some pics later on tonight once I've snuck out of this place!

Stuff looks great. I am loving the purple edging on everything, I have always had a thing for purple. Your stuff just looks menacing but in a bright in your face way.

Hats of for nicking the Nightmare pose for the Talos, well done.

That little girl in the Talos base is going to die horribly. Or worse... to horribly not die.

Lovely work. I chose a simialr colour scheme for my own Kabal so it's nice to see how your models look.

Cheers for the comments guys!

@Gubnutz: Despite not really liking the model, the idea behind Nightmare is great, plus his artwork is badass! I just had to squeeze a little homage to it in my army somewhere! Laughing

@Eldur: Yep, things aren't looking too good for the kid. I am a massive optimist though so who knows!

@Count Adhemar: Cheers! Great minds think alike! Cool

The lights been pretty poor around here for the past few days, so I havent been able to take any snaps of the Venom's. I'm hoping I can grab some later today if the weather holds, so watch this space!
