Finished off my test figure for my dark eldar, excuse the bad pics, I really need a better camera for zooming in close like this.








Quite happy with the colour, except for the body suit, I may darken that on future figures.

Good work, I can't wait to see squads of them in those flying things!

LOL  There's a big toilet roll in the background...


Like the figure.  Are they a small bodyguard squad?

Yeah snow. Not very original but I can never seem to get grass bases looking right.

Very nice - I like them a bit brighter than the usual in White Dwarf, think the red and blue suits them. Bet it took ages to paint with all that red!

Only a baby update, basically stick gluing everything. Plan is to get 1000pts glued, then not purchase anything else until its all painted, so at the getting ready stage, just thought I would show the first trueborn so you know I am not slacking, and am still working at em.

Nice looking figures. You made the base yourself or does it come like that? I like it.

Nah, before I bought any dark eldar I bought some resin bases off ebay, only a few quid per 10, all ruined temple stones. Problem is that quite a few of the dark eldar come with slota bases even though they are plastic so the resin bases are not practical. But seeing as these dont slot onto bases, and I want to try and make them stand out as much as possible I have used them even though they may not tie in with the rest of my force.

You can see they are already painted as I had done them ready for chaos marines to be stuck on, but not working on them at present.

Very nice, and the base looks ace - should be easy to paint as well - a nice drybrush and yer done.


So forgive my ignorance, but is that a blaster he's holding?

The model is a cut-down shredder to look more like a blaster.

So slow, so slow..

Am going through adjusting what my force will be shaped like, it was originally going to be all Wych cult style troops, hellions, reavers etc. But for our campaign, I really want to use an Archon, for his soultrap item, my aim being to capture all your generals souls! So thats looking like a change towards Kabalite warriors, Incubi etc, and I will strike up a deal with the Cult of the White Queen at a later date.

Heres my first Kabalite warrior, hes completed so I could check if I was happy with the colour scheme(I am), got another 5 on the go, in various stages of completion.

Not sure what it is, I am not going into huge detail on these, but its taking me ages to get anything done..

Anyway, here's the first sample from The Kabal of the Bloody Skull, more to follow, although might not be for a while, bloody winter lighting.

They look suitably menacing! I know what you mean about winter lighting too, cock all daylight and low energy bulbs, spend all night squinting!

Like the colour scheme. I love kabalite warriors too! Good job!

Thought of giving a quick purple ink wash over him? Might help to pick the backpack detail up.

Have you tried to get a daylight lightbulb? About £3 - they do 'em at most craft stores. It was what I used coz the house is quite dark, until the missus knocked the lamp over.....

No need to go smashing bulbs, Di could have used a paper bag over your head. Much safer!

Cool - looking forward to the pics!

Army Painter's matt spray is similar to purity seal, only cheaper (ish).

Otherwise Testor's Dull Cote spray is the king of kings apparently. Never used it though.

Cant find testors dull coat, rare as rocking horse shit, ordering some army painter stuff, will give that a try.

Anywho, on to some pics as had 'a little' light today.

Random shot of squad member, possibly my favourite from the squad, love his nonchalant pose.



My Sybarite with Venom blade, I wasn't sure whether to bother with this load out as hopefully they wont been in combat, but I have fancied trying something since looking at Nurgle figures, you can see something dripping from his sword, its some thread glued to his blade, with some Tamiya clear green run down it, looks ok real life, but its not very tough, will be interesting to see if it survives a journey..



Bloke with banner/transfers. I kind of screwed this up, I glued him fairly early on when buying my figures, I would of preferred to save the back that can take a banner/trophy rack for my trueborn. Live and learn, always best to plan ahead!



Group shot

Next up, I think is going to be my Archon, Duc de L'Isle





Another flimsy model Sad

Might invest in a proper carry case before we meet up.

Wow, the Kabalite warriors look fantastic. Love the banner. You got them done quick didn't you?!

How did you do the eyes and weapons? Thraka green ink?

Think the colour scheme suits them really well.

Liking the Archon too - look's a right badass!

Probably not needed now coz the Army Painter one is alright (for the most part) but you can get Testors here I think - the US version's contents contravened some EU regulations I think!

You can still get it from the US though.
