I had grand plans for this article to show off some pictures from the Kill Team event I ran at our club's open gaming day this weekend, but all my snaps were rubbish! Everything I took was essentially in shadow which is fine if you are an actual Dark Eldar but a bit of let down if you want to see anything.
So lets talk hobby instead. I realised this evening that I don't think I'd shown any of my painted Dark Eldar for reference. Let's correct that:
|Haemonculus; this guy was my Warlord for a long time!|
So this is a fairly unusual colour palette for Dark Eldar; lots of brown, red and purple with bronze/copper metallics.
|Kabalite Warriors from the Cult of the Sand Viper|
I want my Reaver Jet Bikes to run a similar scheme. I've started with AP Wood Brown spray (as seen when playing with magnets last time):
|Yep, that's brown.|
|Red ones go faster apparently|
Also started working on the metallic colourings on the fins; (GW Warplock Bronze, then Hashut Copper, finally adding Chainmail highlights). Decided that the Copper was too close to the AP Brown, so I will be adding some red to the fins to break the blocks up.
And of course this is batch painting, so I've been working on the whole dozen:
|Happy with the progress!|
Until next time!
