I realy like the green and technically they are well done. I think they'll match perfectly with the snow-bases. Not stealthlike, but fitting.

Are you planning on incorporating a secondary colour for Trueborn and/or wyches or will they be painted the same?

I would definitely be interested to see one of these completely finished. Looks good so far though.

I have a tourquise (sp?) colour i have since added to the archons sash/belt so that may be the offset colour...

i want to avoid the christmas tree scheme the red/orange would make!

Archon is not far from done now...

Just in time for the holidays! May your enemies have a very bloody Christmas!

Nice work on the painting too.

It looks good, did you undercoat the flesh with a light grey and then build up to white? I can't really tell from the photo, but that will add some more planes to the flesh and make it look a bit better. The rest of the paint looks great, though I think I'd like to see some variance in the scar. Maybe make it a lighter tone?

I really like the base, and I normally don't care for blood!

I really like it, traditionally it looks a bit Craftworld but applied to the Kabalite and Ghostplate Armour it really works. I think a very dark crimson based off of Dark Flesh would work really well as a complementary colour.

I know the Christmas joke was already made, but I feel that if they were green and red would make them look a little too much like elves. Santa's elves.

How very interesting.

They do look craftworldy, but not in a bad way.

I like them very much. I think with a little nudge of contrasting color they could look quite sinister.

Its funny - i never noticed the CWE look until you guys said it... the irony being my first fully painted 40k force back in 2001 was a biel tan force!

I wanted a more solid colour style than the traditional extreme highlights of 5th ed dark eldar and did not have a green army!

The blood is a product called Tamyia clear red. I added black ink to it to get the dark tones and it was added to the snow while the snow was drying so it spread very naturally. I added pure clear red afterwards to get the fresh finish was well as the thicker red of internal deep arterial blood.

I have finished the archon... pics incoming...

Before i get any comments i can say i am happy overall.

I tried a number of new techniques (flayed and living skin in this case) and the results are almost what i wanted 100% I want to put a rune on his cape but for now... he will do.

I also noticed i can field him as the duke so thats win!

Very good, I like. Nice to see a green kabal like mine, yet not with the same green nuance. I'm not going to say anything about what head you've chosen... But that's just my personal idea...

What do you mean??? I just liked the idea of a helmetless head with a mask due to the cold...

I would like to see more distinction done to the scar.

I love the color scheme.

I had considered a face tattoo around the scar... thoughts?

No, it is just me. I just don't like the design of the helmetless heads very much, but you shouldn't adapt that idea if you like the head Smile

Doesn't his right arm get cold though? I like your choice of head to match the cold, but, I agree with Saintspirit on the design of the heads.

I don't think GW have been very inventive with Eldar and Deldar heads. It's only since picking up the game again after 10 years that I realise the Eldar aren't coneheads underneath their helmets but just like human heads, with pointy ears but human nonetheless. I've used the bare Scourge head for my Archon, it looks a lot less human than the rest of them.

I love the color scheme, and think the hawk torquoise makes a great accent color. A tattoo around the scar would be nice, but its hard to do ( I know my freehand isnt that good Razz ) but overall nice. I think a little brighter silver on the weapons and PGL would of been better. But its good overall.

Love the bare heads. Really dig the green and white(if you did yellow and blue my Iyandians would have accused you of using a CWE theme!). What were you thinking of for the contrast color? I agree with GAR that it needs one, though red would look a little X-mas-ish with the snow and all. Nice stuff.

Edit: Oops missed the contrast color. I like it, but would also like to see a little more. I know it's cliche to do the hair in a contrast color but it might bring it out a bit. Are you thinking of trying a rune or two on the baack of the cape thingy?

I like it even though the green/white does look like a craftworld scheme. I'm getting a more pirate than kabal vibe, but that'd be a good theme to go for too.

Thanks very much guys! I like the helmetless head(s) myself - the 5 incubi i am building as bodyguard all all getting the same helmetless treatment with a tatoo on the face.

Would anyone like a quick blood tutorial with pics?

I'd like to see it, I use snow basing for my WoC and I don't like to use blood as a rule because it normally doesn't turn out well.

Thanks!
