Hey everyone, first time post here, so don't hate me too much.
I've been browsing the site for a while picking up color schemes here and there and have found several I would consider quite pleasing, but I've really taken an eye on the Wraithkind color scheme.
There are plenty of dark blue/black with light blue highlights on the edges schemes out there, but would like to make my own be a bit brighter for the basecoat. I've seen some short recipes out there, but nothing with images to go with it, which is why I am here.

Has anyone had any luck painting up Wraithkind or a similar color scheme? I won't be painting my own Dark Eldar for a bit, but I like to see the results of recipes of others before I pick up my brush, just to know what to expect in the end. So I'm wondering if anyone out there has some images of their results/links to pages with images with reicpes (as I couldn't find any).

Thanks!
Xethik

Anything like this colour :

Otherwise I'm not really sure what you mean by 'wraithkind'.

I apologize! I meant to link this but simply forgot.

Anyways, those actually look really nice. Somewhat related, too. Were you going for the Kabal Wraithkind color scheme or just your own? (Or are these not your models?)
Here is the color scheme:

Sorry about not including that earlier.

Yeah do what I do only use blue wash!

Prime black, lightly highlight in hawk turqouise, then 50/50 white+turq, then 75/25 white+turq then 2 washes of green - or in your case blue.

Awesome! That's pretty much what I was going for, too. Thank you so much for that link.
Is it just drybrushed on?

Judging from other minis in Dakka gallery, I would say so.

Yes multple layers. Then wash twice. They're only for the armour plates though. You need to go back and tidy up the undersuit with black or whatever.
