Very nice unit of Wracks and of course the Acothyst leader.

Just a small update on the Archon I'm working on. He'll be the third and final HQ I need to add to my force to be able to run all three cabal/cult/coven in a unified force. Painting him in pieces as he'd be a major PITA to paint as an assembled model. Doing some minor conversion work too to give him a bit of character, I find the base Archon model to be dreadfully boring. Hope you guys like what you see so far.

Wow, looking very promising!
Interested to see how he turns out. I share your opinion about the base model.
I don't have any Archons yet (the whole army is a mess atm), but I hope to get some inspiration from yours.

That archon is coming along nicely, and the little touches do make a difference.

Say what you want about the old dark eldar, they didn't lack for character



I'm really liking your DEs as a whole - the palette is great, and the flayed effect on the athocyst is pretty spectacular. Gotta start working my way backwards through the rest of the blog!

The Alien. The Other. The Inconceivable. The Eldritch Abomination is a type of creature defined by its disregard for the natural laws of the universe as we understand them. They are grotesque mockeries of reality beyond comprehension whose disturbing otherness cannot be encompassed in any mortal tongue.

Looking good. With your knack for flayed and stitched skin he should turn out rather well.

@Ezki Thank you very much for your comment. I feel the model is nicely detailed and has many nice features but man the pose is just the worst thing imaginable. Hopefully I can do a good enough job on this guy to inspire you to knock yours out of the park.

@tzurk Welcome to the PLog, happy to have you aboard! The old DE characters had tons of character (just bad armour design in my opinion). Hopefully you enjoy the rest of the PLog, if you have any questions about past things I've done feel free to ask, I'm always happy to share whatever I've learned throughout the years to give others inspiration.


@Nevelon Thanks Nev, glad you like him so far. The legs are getting close to completion, working my way up on this model as he'd be a nightmare to paint fully assembled.


@youwashock Thanks for the kind words dude, I tried the flayed flesh once as an experiment not thinking I'd really ever use it again but here I am looking for more models I can use it on. It's been a fun technique to learn and I'm very much enjoying the results.

Managed to finish off the legs, just some silver highlights over my last update. The torso is well underway while the sword arm and head are done (except for a bit of 'ardcoat on the drug tubes for the head I suppose). Shouldn't be too much longer and I'll have an Archon finally ready to join the ranks of my DE.

Stunning work as always, love the skin tones. And that blend on the armour. Great work.

Alright he's finally done, and with the Archon that makes my triumvirate of DE HQ's complete! I've thrown in a pic from just after a finished him as well as the light booth shots, I find the lighting in that pic to be much softer and shows his colours (particularly the pink) a bit closer to how they appear in person. My next project I'll be announcing here soon, going to be taking a small break from DE to get a model done for a painting comp on February 23rd. After that I'll be right back to DE and will be finishing off my Voidraven Bomber.


Let me know what you guys think of him, comments and critiques are always greatly appreciated.

Amazing work. The only criticism that comes to mind is that his head kinda gets lost with everything going on around his shoulders. One of the pics with it right next to the skulls illustrates the point. The bone/bronze/brown tends to blend a bit.

I suspect that it’s something that happens more in pictures then in person.

Boom, baby. He came out real good. I very much prefer the pic in the softer light. It seems to show the richness in your paint a bit more.

Thank you Nev and Youwashock for your comments.

@nevelon I totally agree about his head getting drowned out by other parts of the model, it's such a toned down colour and blends with other parts it just can't stand out very well, the pink armour in this case for me steals almost all the attention of this model. Definitely an area I may need to plan out better on future models to distribute attention better. Glad you spotted it too and called me out on it thank you.

@youwashock Thanks man glad you like him. I completely agree with the picture quality. I still have to tweak with my lightbox so I stop over-exposing my models. Taking the time to practice my photography is something that has always taken a back seat to painting the models in the first place sadly.

Thank you very much Captain Brown.

So here's my next project... Morathi. It's such a beautiful model and while I don't play AoS I knew it looked so good I just wanted to try giving it a go. It was purchased as a gift for me and since there is a painting comp coming up on the 23rd of February I figured that would be a good excuse to give myself a deadline and get her done. I'll be building and painting in sub-assemblies to hopefully help me maintain some sanity while painting this. Fingers crossed I can do this beautiful model justice with a worthy paint job.

OOh, snake lady.

What’s her scale like? (Size, not snakey bits) Could she count-as something 40k for a little table time? WL, Talos, Avatar (either one) WK?

Looking forward to seeing some paint on her.

The archon turned out real fine!
Love the color choices.

Morathi is such a pretty model. AOS range in general has some really beautiful models. Almost makes me want to play the game.

I think you can do her justice with your skills!

The Archon looks great! The open pose works a lot better than the stock one.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the snake lady.

Thank you very much for all your words of encouragement everyone, means a lot to me and gets me pumped to work on this project.

I've got some work done on the basing last night, got some details glued down and tonight I'll be putting down the basing sand to tie it all together. Some of the parts are ready to be primed so I'll do that tonight as well so they'll be ready for painting asap. the plan is to work from the ground up on this one: Base, pillar, snake body, Morathi body, head, wings, in that order. I've got my plan set for colours on her body and wings but I'm really unsure on the snake portion, there's so many options out there for snake colours and patterns that I'm only limited by my imagination. On the surface that sounds great but in practice it means I have to sift through a million possible colours and patterns in my head before settling on one. Does that kind of complaining count as 'first world painters problems"?

@nevelon She's a good size, I'd say with wings she could be comparable to Mortarion perhaps. She doesn't have the mass he does but in overall footprint I'd say she's pretty close. I don't think there's anything I could really use her for in 40K but I have been toying with the idea of trying out AoS as a system and DoK would be my primary pick for an army so... I may have even written out a small 1000 point force to start with should I decide to get into it and I've been designing an Armies on Parade board for DoK. All this of course is assuming that Morathi doesn't shred the last vestiges of my sanity and drive me back into the safe comfortable embrace of my DE force. I still have nightmares some nights of how stressful my last big model was, that WK wrecked me for a while.

Thank you very much guys. I'm working on the snake parts now, the colours on this are being quite a struggle to figure out but it's finally moving along. Will have update pics soon hopefully.
