Thread: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Fear not kiwichild, I have plans for the guardian heads, just need to work on my green stuff skills a little before I move forward with them. As for the guns, they took me for what seemed like forever to settle on designs that I liked. The splinter cannons were pretty straight forward, the splinter rifles only a tad more difficult. The blasters on the other hand took well over a week to for each of them. thankfully they turned out alright. thanks for the comments and suggestions, please feel free to keep them coming.

    Are you going to use any shredders? A lot of people don't seem to like them, but I've seen their effectiveness.

    I do have shredders in my Wych squads, but my raider squads are not set up for them at this time. That's not to say I will not add some in the future. Also, hope to have some new VoP pics by the end of the weekend.

    Ok, a bit of an update. I did not get as far as I wanted this week, but I am happy to be where I am. Unfortunately it maybe a few weeks before I get a chance to continue work on any of the projects I have going right now, but, that's life. On to the pictures!

    First up, the rear hull, just in mock up right now, but nearly ready for green stuff and clean up.





    The rear hull with the front hull, again just mock up.




    More to come!

    And just for kicks and grins, some size comparisons with some old school models, an Eldar Falcon and Tempest and an old school Warhound.






    Hope you all enjoy, and as always C&C are welcomed!

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Ok, a long over due post. Sadly I have not gotten any further on the VoP, what I am showing here is my creation from Games Day Baltimore 2009. This is of course from the convert and take table.











    A few of the pics are a bit bright, sorry about that.

    Anyways, he may eventually become a part of a chaos warband I am thinking of putting together in the future.

    C&C welcomed as always. B)

    Put him on a wooden podium base with a little bronze plaque that reads: "Back banner......too heavy.......help me Khorne!".

    It's a nice conversion, I like it. Cut the top part of the banner off and you've got a good start. Maybe mutilate the corpse at his feet, it seems too intact compared to his weaponary. Maybe cut it into segments and remove the head, have the victim's head on the end of his sword, morphing into a skull. From a GD judging perspective it'll look more narrative and the painting will push that to the fore. Overall the basic structure of the mini screams 'victory', emphasis that.

    Lucky bugger, marauder banner in your bitzbox. Wish they had GD in Japan!

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Yeah, the back banner will be coming off. While I do like it, I did realize after the fact that it is too much. I like the ideas about cutting it to the body he is standing on, I will need to keep that in mind when I get around to cleaning the model up. Thanks!

    lovely work. seen a few other threads like it, but your guardian conversion is new to me.
    Nice vessel of pain. Got to start on my own super-heavy soon...

    That flyer is most interesting. I might be thinking about commissioning one if you live in Europe and do commissions once I've seen it painted.

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    @Bloodknight: Thank you. If you are referring to the super heavy I am working on it is a grav tank. I might actually be able to resume work on that in April, I hope.

    Ok, it has been a while since I have posted, or even been able to do any work on my minis. With the loss of my main work space back in September and not having the motivation to argue my way to usable space I decide to take a break from it all. Then recently I got the itch to get back to playing Epic and inspiration began to take hold as I started rummaging through my bits and the beginnings of a project started to form. So with great pleasure I present to you the beginnings of what will be the center piece of the army as I get started: a Tormentor Titan!

    Ok, I will start with the original design ideas for the legs:





    From the top:

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Then I started to think of a new design for the legs to allow for more articulation:





    One with the start of the upper torso:



    And last but not least a size comparison with an Eldar Revenant:



    As always C&C welcomed!

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Problem with these kind of projects, sometimes you never finish them. I'd like to see some finished things.

    That huge reaver like skimmer, look decent, but it's not finished : (

    I plan on making a similar one, but like a bigger raven armed with 2 huge shredders to serve as a true dark eldar bomber. I got the artwork etc... done, but before that I have to finish my other projects first.

    As for your warriors, they look nice, but I don't like putting capes on dark eldar and I don't like mixing too many dark elf bitz, it's just personal taste.

    The biggest Dark Eldar Kabal ever! Don't hesitate to take a look.

    very nice force you have started up.

    hope you get more time and some space to finish them up!

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Thanks all. I am actually hoping to make some time this week to pick up where I left off. These days it is not so much the time as it is the space.

    Ok, so I had a chance to work on my epic tormentor in the wee hours of the morning.











    I am hoping to do some more work on the 40K scale Vessel of Pain in the coming weeks along with more work on the epic stuff.

    C&C welcomed as always!

    Re: Dark Eldar: Expanding the Kabal

    Ok, a quick little update. Beside some needed GS'ing I just need to figure out what I will use for the jump jets on the back. I am using the back piece from a 40K Incubi as the upper part but need to find some thing for the lower parts.
