After 6 years of owning all these minis, I've finally decided to paint them!

Here are the first few models:

This is still a WIP, but I really like how the skin and armor came out.

Another WIP, I just have some simple touching up to do. I also have to add the pilot.

And for my warriors:
These are all painted to tabletop quality. I'm not trying to win any GDs here... I'm just wondering what you think of my color scheme and such.

Green Nipple?! I'm fixing that right now! I didn't even notice until I looked carefully at the picture.

Not bad work there. It's gratifing to see a new Dark Eldar plog, since I've just started up an army of them a few days ago, so it's a handy reference for progress.

The blue is still a bit bland, but I really like the "decoration" on the front of your transporter. I'll keep an eye on this :)

Good to see some more dark eldar logs coming up, and especially of such high standards!
brilliant paint job, simple but effective and the decoration on the raider is brilliant!

keep up the good work.

Maggot out.

I actually painted the designs on the raider roughly three years ago, so my next raider should be much more well-done and detailed.

Anyway, here are some more warriors:

I painted these warriors differently, just to see if a completely hawk-turquoise armor would look good. I'm pretty satisfied with the results!

This is my raider that I plan on using for my Archon and his retinue. I used old BFG and jetbike bits to beef-up the parts surrounding the engine and an old action figure I found laying around my house as the "scorpion tail." The dark lance is sticking out of the dragon's mouth.

I definitely prefer the old scheme with the black - much more visually interesting and less like spiky pajamas!

That said the old scheme is fantastic and I look forward to seeing more. Makes me want to work on the Dark Eldar I share with my brother...

Alright, I'm going over some of the new ones with black! The comment about the pajamas got to me. :)

Another Warrior, this is probably my favorite one so far:

Hmmm.... Personally I don't like the turqoise with gold combination. The gold just doesn't seem right. I like turqoise on Dark Eldar, but the gold doesn't do it justice, in my opinion.

Perhaps you could consider Boltgun Metal over gold?

The scorpion tail looks awesome!!!

Woah, how did I miss the post right above mine? That dragon head would look awesome at the front of a Raider, almost like a Viking boat.

Glad you're back to black, and I personally think the gold works much better than Boltgun would. Stick with this scheme and keep 'em coming!

Sufficiently spiky, well painted and a good yet original colour scheme. Nice.

Those are really nicely painted. So great to see a Dark Eldar log on here. Just wish more people would do them.
