Survival is no birthright, but a prize wrested from an uncaring galaxy by forgotten heroes. Study the alien, the better to kill it.

For reference, here is the 1000 pt version of my army:

Of course not everything pictured is in the new list above, hence the only 675 of it being already painted.


January's commitment is finishing this Ravager:

Technically it already has three colors on it and would qualify as "painted" for tournament standards, but imo it's a LONG way from done. If it doesn't qualify for the challenge, it doesn't count.... *shrug* I still need to get it done first so I can actually finish assembling it. lol.

"Done" will look more like this:

...except obviously with big guns on the side and whatnot. ;)

That's fantastic. I have to say -- the thread title hooked me.

Love the style and color. The DE are such amazing models, I enjoy seeing them get prettied up.

Base black with bright 'neon' colors look amazing.... Orange, green, pink, yellow...

Showed this to a buddy of mine with un-painted DE and he may steal it....

=D Glad y'all like it. I wanted to make them have a little bit of "punk" to them. My theory was that in the dark arenas and night raids, you would only really be able to see them by the glowing edges of their armor (a la Tron), so I figured I'd make those parts as bright as possible. =)

And it's not actually black. They're warlock bronze as a basecoat for the armor, on top of a black primer. The leather bits are the dark brown leather. It all looks very dark in comparison to the neon, but they have a distinct dark chocolatey color that I think ties the other two bright colors together better than just straight black.
