Default Dark Eldar - H0RRIDF0RM

I started painting the Dark Eldar shortly after its release. Unfortunately I keep getting side tracked with my other projects so I'm not as far as I would like to be on my army. So I decided to strictly work on my Dark Eldar until August. Hopefully the community's support will keep me motivated.

I've always been a fan of Asdrubael Vect so I had to paint the stereo type "Black Heart" Dark Eldar. If I started new I would probably paint Obsidian Rose.

Kabalite Warriors





I settled on an ashen wasteland for my base scheme. It gave me a chance to use the dead/burnt grass. I also wanted to be creative with the bases and add debris to give the land a real war torn look. You will start to notice more detailed bases later on during this adventure.

Mandrakes





My prototype Mandrake has a grey/white hair scheme. I later went with the anime purple white hair look. Kind of like Magus from Chrono Trigger. After all they are daemons.

Reavers





Ravager



Clawed Fiend





As soon as I got this guy I stopped painting my Wyches. It felt good to use different colors for a couple of hours.

For the Wyches I switched to a purple glaze for the skin instead of the muted brown tone used on the Kabalites and Reavers. I also discovered some hidden detail that I missed on my Kabalites. So I went back and finishe them.





I used an air brush for the Khymeras and I was totally drunk when I painted them. So don't judge me to harshly.





Coming soon...

They look great with one exception: there is something about the brass/bronze parts that just doesn't look right to me. Can't put my finger on it though.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

not bad horrid. you missed the undercarrage of your reavers though, the bars at the front just above the gun dont seem to be painted. atleast on the sides. you painted them gold on the top but not on the sides or bottem?

It's painted. I use a very thin light grey for the highlight of the under carriage. If you look closely it will materialize. :D
