Hi all,

This is what I'm thinking for my army. Here's the first few warriors I've got done.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. Please excuse the average photos not really my strong point =P


My current paint scheme  DSCF0889

Thanks for looking.

I like them, but for some reason the rifles look a little lasgunish like that.

I asked because your paintscheme and painting style looked like another user (from Dakka).

Awesome work. I'll tell you the same thing then. I don't like a lot of red on Dark Eldar armor. I just don't find it that thrilling aesthetically. You've done a great job. I can't wait to see more.

I think they look great! And don't listen to Xelkireth, all of my old Kabal's vehicles were painted with a Red color and they looked great! Keep up the good work!

Also, how did you paint the loin-cloth/skins, I like the tone they have?



Xelkireth: Sorry, I found myself making a lot of "I agree with Xelkireth" posts today and had to disagree with you on something!

OMG... I almost sprayed Mountain Dew via nostral projection all over my laptop when I read that part. No worries, amigo. I just don't like red. It's a personal quirk.

I like this a lot (in WHFB, I play Khorne Warriors so I am quite fond of red paintjobs), but the guns gut get a bit of a fix. Otherwise great.

Curse you! I want some MD, too. It's way too hard to get over here Sad.

Anyway: Red is a traditional 'evil' colour. I like it on DE (I love the colour scheme for the Obsidian Rose). I prefer cold colours myself, but I can't fault the painting here. Looks good IMHO. However, I would change the green grass for some dead grass.

Keep painting!

Cheers for the feedback guys.

Originally I was going to try and do a lot darker scheme ending in red highlights but I couldn't get it a way I like so I gave up and went for straight red.

The bases is a bit of a change for me. Normally I end up doing snow bases for everything, just because it doesn't match anything in my clubs terrain selection Laughing
