Hello guys!

I've post a few slightly alternate schemes for certain armies in the past, I'm not one to do things exactly to the book.

Here's my newest work, a small 750 point DE force I'm preparing for a tourney.

I still have a unit of Kabal Warriors and a unit of Wytches to come but thought I'd throw what I've done up now and the rest came go up later.

Let me know what you think. I may have gone a little over the top with the ravager hull but I'm pretty pleased with them overall.

Photos are not the best but I work with what I've got.

Thanks!! Hope you Enjoy.


So far I've got pics of:
1x Raider with Dark Lance.
1x Ravager with 3 Dark Lances
1x Succy with Venom Blade
5x Incubi
3x Venom with dual Splinter Cannons.

to come:
1x 5 Kabal Warriors
1x 5 Kabal Warriors
9x Wytch with 1 Razorflail.

Amazing paint scheme! These are rather bright eldar, rather than dark I like it very much!

I'm not a particular fan of the vehicles, but the infantry are very nice.

The paintjob is well executed with good airbrush technique and they look good but,
My initial view of the vehicles had me reaching for sunglasses, they are very bright and IMO this is not my idea of the DE aesthetic ( but I could see exceptions as they are crazy druggies etc)
I would go a bit further on the vehicles and maybe give them an oil paint wash to tone down the colours a bit and add some depth to the flat surfaces. Also make them look a bit more realistic and battle hardened.
Infantry look great.
Just my opinion, keep up the good work.

Very smoothe Its a nice change from the regular dark eldar schemes! I plan on doing something similar mind with the regular purple look more then likely.

I do have to say though I think your raider should have transitioned vertically from blue to white like the other vehicles I think that would be my only complaint x3 as its a bit glary in comparison to everything else.

I think the vehicles look great, but your Incubi do not fit well. I think its the green. I don't think it meshes with the rest of the color tones.

Really like the vehicles and the airbrush work though.

I was going to do them from a Dark Green through to White instead of the blue, which I kind of regret as I think it would have fit the DE a bit better. Purple is another awesome suggestion that never even came to mind amazingly, don't know how I didn't think of it. Blue was the only readily available color in my Vallejo Air paints though, unless I did red to orange to yellow to white.

They are not quite as bright in real life though it is a bit of shock when you first see them. I was going for something pretty out there though, that sort of thing seems to polarize people’s opinions a fair bit.

Thanks for the Feedback guys, always appreciate it (good and bad), I'm half way through the Kabalite Warriors now so I'll update again soon when the army is tourney ready.

I really like your infantry! You're vehicles are very very bright, like CE bright. Airbrush?

THE FUN HAS BEEN DOUBLED!!!

Yeah all the vehicles are airbrushed, infantry get airbrushed on the sprue then assembled and detailed. I pretty much used my techniques for doing power weapons and applied it to the vehicles.. I'm not sure what CE bright means, but yes they are very bright. My camera makes the white a lot more vibrant in the photos which doesn't help.

The Ravager was going to have a Flicker Field so that's why I changed it up a bit on that one to show it for the tourney.

The Kabalite squad was finished off last night, here are the pictures. There are two squads of 5 to go in a pair of venoms.

Wow that is really nice. I really like the brighter coloured scheme on DE and this is just well painted. Good job!

I really like the scheme on your warriors. The vehicles I'm still not sure on. I think maybe the red/yellow on the sails is throwing the effect for me.

That being said. I REALLY like how different it is, kudos on that!
