This is my ongoing blog for my big 2014 Dark Eldar project. Given that i probably am finishing up my Skynet Terminator project sooner than expected, I may already begin by the end of the month.

So... first few posts will be me gathering my thoughts and listing what I have available here. Having gathered so many 2nd hand bits, bobs and lots over the year it should help.

This is what i'll be going for more or less http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-jtzuwcEJJvE/ULybN3m7cPI/AAAAAAAAAN0/HnU7FeXtDU0/s1600/968adf39.jpg

http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/showthread.php?16821-Kabal-of-the-Red-Sand/page2

The symbol of the Kabal being a red eye on a black field.

2x Eldar Wraithguard box (so 10 in total) -> to use as DE Grotesques
1x Eldar Dire Avengers (may buy some more) -> helmet of leader for Archon - rest of hats and bitz for trueborn
1x Asdrubael Vect's Barge to have a ride for my Archon and of course... the sweet classic longcoat Incubi.
1x old school damaged Ravager in need of repairs
4x seperately bought long coat incubi
1x box of old school Dark Eldar + Raider (8 Dark Eldar warriors +1 Raider)
6x regular old school incubi
1x new Archon
2x old school Dark Eldar Battle Force (10 DE jetbikes, 2 Raider, 40 DE Warriors)
2x New Dark Eldar battleforce (totals at 20 Dark Eldar Kabalite Warriors, 20 Dark Eldar Wyches, 6 Dark Eldar Reavers, 2 Dark Eldar Raiders)
2x seperate Dark Eldar Raider
1x Dark Eldar Scourges
1x old school female Dark Eldar Archon
3x Old school Dark Eldar Sybarite with claw weapon and blaster
2x Old school Dark Eldar Sybarite with whip
2x old school Haemonculus (2 variants)
4x old Metal Warrior with Blaster
4x Old Metal Warriot with Dark Lance

What I'm probably getting to round it all out:
Some Ravagers, the Eldar Prince char to kitbash my main Archon, a Haemonculi and some more raiders.

Coming up next... some preliminary army lists i'll useto build an army around.
500pts - 750ps - 1000pts - 1500pts - 1750pts - 2000pts - 3000pts

And a little test build of a 10 man Dark Eldar squad.

15.11.2013
First rough thoughts on list

1 Archon with unit of longcoat and regular Incubi either in a Raider (large unit) or 4 greatcoats in a venom.
2x 4-5 Trueborn with blasters in venom
6x 10 Kabalite Warriors with blaster or Splinter Cannon in Raider
2x unit of Reavers
3x Ravager

Alternative 'groups' or units i'll make.

-> 20 Kaballite Warriors with Splinter Cannon and Sybarite + Haemonculus (for paintoken)
-> 10 man unit of converted Wraithguard 'Grotesques' with Haemonculus. Or 2x 5 with haemonculus
-> Drazhar -> to use as Klaivex for my oldschool Incubi
-> Slave girls as objective markers
-> ...

Yep i'm still glueing and working on the first batch. Then i'll take pictures of them undercoated. And after that i shall begin the first wave of painting Smile
I'm basically making this blog to force me to keep track of it all. I'm especially going to dig into it start next year. I'm mostly preparing, assembling etc atm

EDIT: next weekend i'll put up some piccies of my glued force so far.

I'm hoping they'll mix well enough with 'modern style' squads >_>;

*updated* gonna start working on a few first models of basic retro Dark Eldar instead of putting up undercoated plastic i'll do my best to get a piccie up of a handful of painted warriors by next weekend. Far more productive me thinks.

UPDATE 23.11.2013 first testmodel 90% done.

Yep Smile
I think i roughly found my scheme atm. Ain't home tonight and this afternoon but i am tomorrow so I hope to finish him off and put him up. As it's a year long project i'm taking my time. I'm starting even ahead of schedule so... quality over quantity. Want to be sure i like the colors i picked.

The colour scheme comes out very nicely. I also have loads of 3rd Ed Dark Eldar, and I find the sculpts look fine if painted well. Looking forward to seeing some more.

And finally the first pictures.
Finished the Templar but i suspect i'm getting some more large scale historical miniatures for the holidays from my little brother so... yeah those may delay me and the same goes for some 'mech' miniatures from a board game.
But after that the work on the DE continues. Nonetheless I wanted to put this up to stimulate myself and prove that my dedication to working throughout 2014 on a Dark Eldar force remains:

Not bad at all, though they would look even better with some extreme highlights like most of the current DE. Some very light red or pink highlights, very thin lines on the edges of the red. Made with white mostly, like 3/4 white + red or pink(very minimal amount), but you'll have to find yourself which is better and the proper ratios for both colors. It's weird at first but it's actually the reason why the current DE painted by GW look so spectacular, I had tried the same on my old incubi and people loved them, still love them.

Awesome. I think i'll try that once i got a portion of my Kabal done so i can do it 'en masse'.
Nice to see another Belgian here.

Atm i'm painting mainly some Abaddon mecha for a boardgame but after that i should return to the DE. Smile
