Well, I just started Dark Eldar and only having ever painted Tyranids (been painting Nids for 2-3 years and have about 7k painted).

I was not sure how I would go. I am new to the forums and have been lurking for awhile just reading tactics and articles.

Here are my first models and I will update as I go - Any feedback or advice is appreciated:

My first unit of Dark Eldar Warriors:

The beginning of my first Raider (also the first vehicle I have painted or assembled):

Very nice highlighting on your stuff. I like where you are going with this. Looking forward to more Smile

Good show. The glowy green looks adequately menacing.

Looking good. Great edge highlights. Painting those nid plates makes you a natural.

-bows- Please teach me, the High Lord Archon Alino Las'Kalo of the Kabal of the Darkened Light, how to do that highlighting -throws paper on table- if you do it, sign that, and at the end, I will offer you 1,000 of my finest slaves... or I might just kill you...

Thank you for the compliments! The highlighting is done by undercoating black and then dusting with a Dark Angels Green with an airbrush along each edge.

I then combine a mix a 1:1 DA Green and Snot Green and run it along all the edges again. Follow this by just using Snot Green and finally a yellow, white and snot green mix just at the very top edges and 1/2 cm towards the bottom.

I have been working on the Raider more today and am close to finishing it - here are the results.

Have complete the Raider finally! Amazing what some rest and being sick lets you accomplish (also, the drought has broken and it is not stupid hot):

Would you be able to give a step by step example of that green on your raider, really loving it.

Also props on the 'nids, great highlighting skills all round Smile

I like them both.

MOD hat on.

However, please refrain from posting any non-DE or Eldar in this section of the forum. Please post those in the "Distractions" section which is for all non DE or Eldar models.

MOD HAT OFF.


I will cheerfully follow both threads as both are great armies in making. As I am still finishing my DE and starting a tyranid army of my own, I would love to share ideas.

Very nice work. Your highlights are so clean and neat.
