Crisis averted. With the white along the edge I think you've scored a ground rule double on this one.

I agree with Hornblower -- make it stand out as "special". Do a little free-hand on it with DE markings and it's a WIN.

1/26 - Fuegan update

Got sick on Friday, so stayed home and slept but found some time to paint...while sitting down I got sick of looking at my 1-color Fuegan and decided to paint him up...

I really wanted to play with some layering techniques to both capture the heat of his weapons, but also extreme highlights of his armor.

I'm feeling pretty proud of this one. Few things I still need to finish:
- gems - I prepped the gems with a brass ring and black gem, but need to practice a bit more before trying the color/reflection on the gems
- shoulder / thigh pads - not sure what color I want to paint the outer parts of the shoulder/thigh armor plates
- eyes - thinking if doing an OSL treatment to the eyes to make them pop a bit more
- Firepike - want to add a burn on the tip of the gun with a glowing effect on the tips edges

Any other thoughts?

1/27 update - Baron Sathonyx

Kinda stalled on my Baron... I like the gold embellishments to play up the Dark Eldar "royalty" theme (isn't that part of the fluff?), but not sure about the rest of the color scheme?

- Ditch the white/blue sky board color?
- Redo the black/blue/pink armor highlights?
- Keep bringing up the skin color?

One idea I have is to get a chaos terminator lord cape and kit bash some more...

Thoughts?

I think play up the skin some more and bling out the board with runes and you're set.

Hmmm. I read "Skin" + "bling" and instantly thought of tattoos! Love it!

Sorry guys, I couldn't resist to pose my Deathstar unit. Actually was practicing my model spacing against blast templates and incoming low AP shots.
