New to the forum and ready to throw some hobby progress down!
Bringing some second and third hand Dark Eldar that are in desperate need of some love and giving them a minty fresh coat of paint.

Welcome to the forums, Capn' Petey. It'll be nice to see another Dark Eldar army represented in the HPC. Good luck!

Proof of concept squad complete and based! Going broken blacktop bases for most of the army, flyers will probably be over rubble to help blend in the moulded based on the scourges.

The sails and the bodies of the warriors look fantastic. I think your purple is missing something though. Your highlights on the rest kick ass, but the purple is kind of blah.
