Default Dark Eldar - Kabal of the Poisoned Vines

Hello and guess this is a welcome back after a while away from the painting and gaming world. (Real Life moves and lack of internet).

I have decided to collect Dark Eldar after reading their history and fluff in the codex recently. I have attached a few photos of the WIP that is what is becoming a huge force already (around 2500 pts of models that are being or have been assembled and undercoated for the Monthly painting challenge).

Anyway enough of the chat here are the pictures.

WIP Archon.

Still got the base and few little things to do on it but almost complete.

WIP Archon from the back.

First attempt at cloaks, hope you guys like.

WIP Lhamaean.


Gemstones and base to be completed.
Will get a decent photo of her eyes with the green in them.

WIP Incubi 1 of 5 to be done.

Still got the golden brass, blade, spikes and decorations and gems.

I like those. The edge highlighting is sharp, but not so sharp that it starts to detract from the model. I really like the smoothness of the paint on the Incubi's helmet as well as the hint of osl that I see around his eyes. Gems look good too as does the rusted metal. I shall be following this plog, well done.

Regards,
Jake.

Jake,

Thank you for your kind words.

Ok after getting some decent light on a camera, I decided to show a little more of my work off.

Lhamaean Face close up.
(Apologies for the camera as it is off a iphone 4S on max zoom, so I think it makes it look a little grainy.)


The first of 4 Raiders to start off with. There is a little work still to be done but seeing her flying across the battlefield is an awesome sight so far.

Raider 1 Front


Raider 1 Port


Raider 1 Starboard

The sail symbol is to represent the Kabal Poisoned Vines. This is going to be the symbol I will attempt to recreate on each of the sails and banners on all Raiders and Ravagers.

Raider 1 Front Freehand

I attempted some freehand for the first time on the Dark Lance armour holding and it is to represent the Poisoned Vines.

Note that I am using the Wyches helmets for some if not all my transport in this force.

Finally I know that is not complete as there is some more edging and then finally more freehand to go on the front and side hull but nothing over the top to ruin the vehicle itself.

Hope you like the work so far. Can't wait for the painting challenge to begin now.

Craig.

The Lhamaean close up really shows the detail you've achieved on the face. The skin is creepily pale (in a good way) and the eyes are spot on. Nice job on the freehand also.

Regards,
Jake.

Cheers Jake,

Fully appreciate comments, means a lot that I can produce some decent painting for once in my life and let others enjoy it.

Following on from a quick break from painting Wyches for March Painting Challenge

Here is my continuing work on my First Razorwing Jetfighter and Venom

First of all the Razorwing Jetfighter.


Now the Venom.


Attempting some freehand symbols and writing for the first time in my painting advancement.

I promise I will have some fully finished miniatures by the time March comes to an end.

Nicely done! Clean, crisp and simple. Striking and deadly and the freehand is good.

Cheers. +rep

Hey mate, these are looking really good. My only comment is, I don't know if it's just me and my painting stye but these minis look too clean! Some weathering and a bit of damage would make them look better, but that's just in my opinion

great work nevertheless

Those vehicles, particularly the raider, are excellent. The purple is very smooth and even, and the green spot colour really stands out against the purple. The free hand worked out really well. Looking forward to seeing more.

Rev,

Thank you for your words. I could say this is a new and rising Kabal House, but then again never take a Dark Eldar word for it.

Honestly it is one of the skills (weathering and damage) I have yet to attempt. I will be looking at this skill over time as the Kabal progresses.

Thanks again
