Default Dark Eldar test mini

So as I tend to suffer from "oh - shiny!" syndrome I picked up a box of Dark Eldar Warriors.

First thing is, these models are a dream to paint. Very quick to do. Here is my first sample warrior. Took me, maybe an hour or so to do:

What do you think?

The pictures aren't great so I can't comment on specifics but it looks like you've got a nice solid scheme there. I'd be happy to play against a fully painted army of these boys.

If we could see some better quality photos that would be great

I am with Reaper. The photos are a bit blurry so making out the details is a little hard, but from what I can see they look great! I like the OSL around the eye lenses and the blue feathering on the shoulder armor is nicely done. Good work!

They are a tad too colourful for my liking, but they are painted quite well. Well done on the blending for the highlighting.

The edge feathering looks well done, and the two colours coordinate well.

However I agree with asianavatar that they appear very colourful; possibly they would look even better if the feathering was lighter.

I think you did very well with this guy man! He is colourful, but in a way that kind of reminds us of where the Dark Eldar come from, yet dark enough to remind us they have fallen from the good! Nice work!
