    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    I got myself to painting again a bit this week, and this is the outcome (Pics as bad as always, I really need to buy a real camera):

    Dark Eldar Archon with Bike Retinue:



    The Bikers alone:





    Closer shot of one biker:



    And a squad of Warp Beasts (actually Chaos hounds, the real Warp Beasts are both ugly and hard to come by now):




    The Beasts were basically paint scheme testers because I wanted to paint some red models - I have a Khorne army in the works, and since that is mostly FW stuff, I don't want to botch it. I like the way the beasts turned out, and want to paint an "enhanced" version with a bit more work into them as Flesh Hounds (or Generic Lesser Daemons ) for that WE army.

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    Another shot of the beasts:



    And an ugly shot of the Archon; I'll try to make a better one later.




    And I actually got around to finishing the Imp characters. They are a bit half assed because there was a long pause between the first sessions and me finishing them, and I lose interest in unfinished models quite quickly, especially if they're models that I don't intend to use, such as the Enginseer and Uriah Jacobus.

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    Ah, so your back to painting!

    That's a really nice tone you achieved on your jetbike-drivers. My only criticism would be the archon - she's a tad to static in her pose for my taste.

    The Beasts were basically paint scheme testers because I wanted to paint some red models
    I like them. How did you paint their skin?

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    There's not much I can do about the pose, I think, since the arms are a part of her armour. Was hard enough to get her on the bike in the first place since that model isn't exactly in a riding pose, lots of sawing between her legs

    I like them. How did you paint their skin?
    Thanks

    Black Primer.
    Whole model painted Mechrite Red.
    Whole model painted Blood Red.
    Whole model washed twice with Devlan Mud.
    Highlights in 80/20 Red Gore/Blood Red on their bodies.
    Highlights in 60/40 Red Gore, Blood Red.

    The manes were then drybrushed in 8 steps from Blood Red, Blood Red with Blazing Orange (2x, 70/30, 50/50), Blazing Orange, Blazing Orange with Fiery Orange (50/50), Fiery Orange, Fiery Orange with Golden Yellow (50/50) and finally Golden Yellow on the ridge of their back.

    Ah, I hadn't thought about devlan mud for the skin. I was experimenting on a bloodletter with mechrite red and badab black, but I wasn't that happy with the result.

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    I see. I use Badab Black for my Wyches' armour, but it's too crass for skin tones, I think. Ogryn Flesh might work, too, but I haven't tried that yet.

    I love the Warp Beasts. They are a unit I enjoy using and the models you've used are so much better than the offical ones.

    Impressive stuff. I'm going to use your hints for my DE stuff and going to ask for more. Tks again for your pictures and ideas.

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    Thanks for the praise .

    My next project is going to be a unit of Mandrakes (the actual Mandrake models). I want to see if I can do anything so they won't look too crappy; they're the only DE models that I don't really like but I bought a squad of them to have a complete collection regardless (there will be Scourges at some point, too, I've got 10 of them; still missing Grotesques now...I am not going to pay retail for Grotesques that I will never use since they suck in the game).
    I do own real warp beasts, too, but I can't be bothered now that I've painted the hounds - they are much better models.

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    Got around to painting a bit more; a unit of Mandrakes this time. They are pretty weak models, but since I own every DE FOC choice I decided they had deserved a bit of love, too.

    Weak pics as always, I still hope you like them.

    We all know that the mandrake models lokk hideous - your paintjob gives them a way better appearance.

    -4 Raiders (for the 2 Wych squads, another Raider squad and the 2nd Retinue)

    -1 Dracon
    - 12 Shredder/Blaster armed Warriors

    Just wandered across this thread and I must say I'm rather impressed! It's not often you see a well painted DE army, thankyou for the visual pleasure.

    Re: My random plog. Mostly IG, DE and CSM.

    Hey there :-)

    you sheme works so well :-) I like the colours very much and you make the models look better as they are. I hope gw sometimes go over them, to give every w40k-race its justice :-)
    The beasts are especially nice, that warm fur and nice clean painting, well done.
    Suits them to 100% and much better than the old beasts from the DE imo.

    Keep them coming,

    Thanks, guys. I didn't get anything done over the last couple of weeks, but I intend to have a Scourge unit finished by next week.
