    VanSan`s Dark Eldar (Archon finished!)

    Decided to start a new army and because of the fantastic miniature range and the interesting style of gaming I chose DE.
    Here are my first minis.

    Very nicely done, the red is a nice (fresh) look to some of the Tron armor scheme's.

    What else are you planning on painting up, or converting?

    That red is amazingly well done, the models look superb.

    I can't really say much more than that, they are that good.

    Your wyches are stunning. I love the colors, so much better than the black GW scheme. The details on you raider are excellent. I'll be keeping an eye on your log. Keep it up!

    BTW, what did you use for snow?

    Ausgezeichnet! Strong reds, good balance of 3-color + accent.

    Personally, I would have liked to see bronze-gold on the weaponry - especially the gun chambers, etc.

    But there's no arguing that your scheme stands out.

    I'm seriously considering going red with my DE instead of the glowy-edged GW scheme for Black Heart. I think it looks awesome but this red is powerful.

    I also like how you chose brown instead of black for the bodysuits.

    Holy mother of God that Raider is amazing.

    It's almost enough to make me start a Dark Eldar army.... almost.

    Looks very nice! I especially like the large symbols that you painted on the sides of the Raider.

    Keep up the good work!

    Re: VanSan`s Dark Eldar

    Just a very minor thing I thought I'd raise, the centre Wych and Wychon the right in the second picture and 1st on the left in the third picture have female heads on male torsos. Looks a tad odd, but perhaps only if you are sensitive to such things as I am.

    Clearly, Eldargal, you haven't read the Dark Eldar Codex fully.

    Many Dark Eldar get bored with their bodies after a few centuries and undergo all manner of elective surgical procedures....

    OT: really like the bold contrast between the reds. I think red is going to become the 'standard' DE colour at this rate. Not all are painted as well as the OP's, of course!

    Quite, hehe, but I'm not sure Wyches who pride themselves on being stunningly beautiful are going to get breast reduction surgery to quite that degree.

    Loved your Deathwing.

    The painting here is top notch and I really like the bases. The scheme is a bit bold and contrasting for my tastes but it is very well executed

    That reminds me of Agis Neugebauer's stuff- very bold colors.

    Re: VanSan`s Dark Eldar

    VanSan you've been cranking out amazing forces since you started using a larger variety of colours. I remember your old IG stuff from many years ago, and also other stuff you painted, and it all seemed to work with the same palette - Vomit Brown, white, red and blue with blacks and metals. It's great to see you've gone and added to that, awesome work both on the DE and the Dark Angels.

    Awesome work ! Really love the color choices. And I just noticed the raider gunner, I'm going to steal the idea of giving him a pistol to add some variety to mine

    Congratulations on a great looking army!

    Out of curiousity: How did you paint the skin?
