Finally found the time this weekend to finish my Ravager. Here's some shots of the finished Model. I'm quite happy with how this simple paint scheme came out in the long run on the skimmer. Sorry for the poor quality of some of these pics I need to get some better lighting in my workroom.

From what I can tell, this is looking pretty good! I like the pattern of white/black. It breaks the standard Dark Eldar edge-highlight-contrast-color-only mold. I also like the silver emphasis on the blade part of the keel blades. Makes them pop a little bit. I will say that I think the hull itself is in want of like... a purple accent detail to tie it more strongly to your purple crew armor, but on the whole, nice!

Thanks Valeria. Its a bit hard to tell but the darker color on the hull is actually a very dark purple. I will need to take some shots of it in daylight ... my lighting situation in my work room isn't the best for photography.

Ahhh. Yeah I thought it might be based on that first picture in particular, but with the heavy blue tint on your pics it was hard to tell. hehe. Very nice. I dig it.

What kind of camera are you using? Good lighting is always a major plus, but it looks like you need a white-balance reset too if you've got a camera that can do that.

Just using the camera on my droid DNA. There's some apps I can dl that might help. I'll keep playing with that and my lighting and see if I can get some better shots.

Posting this a few days late ... I have decided that I will paint my warrior squad and Lilith Hesperax this month.
