m1nd1ess - Dark Eldar

Post by m1nd1ess » Wed Jan 02, 2013 9:14 pm

After 3 years of 40k, I finished my first completely painted and based Eldar army last month... That felt good... Now I was looking at all my grey plastic Dark Eldar and decided I was going to get in on the next Hobby Progress Challenge the ICs did with them. So... Here is my list as of now...

HQ
Archon - Agonizer, Combat Drugs, Phantasm Grenade Launcher, Shadow Field
Succubus - Agonizer, Haywire Grenades

Troops
10 Warriors - Splinter Cannon
Raider - Splinter Racks
10 Warriors - Dark Lance
10 Warriors - Dark Lance
9 Wyches - Hydra Gauntlets, Haywire Grenades
Hekatrix - Grenade Launcher, Agonizer
Raider - Aethersails

Elites
4 Incubi
Venom - Splinter Cannon
5 Incubi
Venom - Splinter Cannon

Fast Attack
3 Reavers - Cluster Caltrops, Heat Lance
3 Reavers - Cluster Caltrops, Heat Lance
5 Scourges - 2 - Heat Lance

Heavy

This is what I am shooting for... It might change... Still seeing what I can get off of eBay and such...

I was thinking of working on my Dark Eldar for this challenge as well but decided to go for my unfinished SW this time around. I have a list very similar to this. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

For January... I will be painting my Incubi...
Image

This should be interesting as I am painting them all white... And I have never painted white for armor and such before... Just large flat areas with little shading...

And as for my main colors... I thought I would try something else different...
Image

That's Pink Horror and Tamiya's Metallic Blue... These are going to be what colors I focus on... The blue might change as I see how it turns out, but I wanted to try something different.

White armour? Should be very interesting. I look forward to seeing how you highlight it and how the pink and blue accent it.

Well... Here they are! Done except for finishing the painting of the basing... Right now the glue is drying on them.

And for my February commitment...

Image

If you look there is one guy painted with an old test scheme... Decided to go away from the green after painting a bunch of it for my Eldar... He will be getting a new paint job.

I think another goal for sometime soon... Outside of painting things... Will be to make up some sort of light box... My wife has a nicer camera and it would be nice to take better pictures than these with my iPhone.

And here is my February Commitment Finished!

I haven't decided on March yet... I need to look at what I could do to play a Kill Team with my friends... It will probably be some Reavers or Scourges though... Once I know for sure, I will post my before pictures.

Nice, even the ground is dark, they certainly ooze malicious intent!

That first picture doesn't do your painting justice! The second picture looks awesome. I love the subtle bits of blue glow on the grenade launcher and eyes especially.

There they are being primed... My wife is going to be gone for 3 weeks here... I may end up with more painted than just those... Who knows...

Well... Things happen and my commitment had to change this month. I wanted to play some games of Kill Team with some of my friends, but wanted to have a completely painted squad. Since I was using my Incubi, I wanted their ride as well. That means I painted up a Venom instead of my Reavers.

Before:

After:

For April, I will paint those Reavers. I want to play around with them a bit in a few games, and having the painted models is nice.
