Heya all and welcome back! After taking my sweet ass time painting this dude, I am finally done with him!
The other part that requires a great amount of blending are the tabards and cloth, for I essentially blended seven layers (or maybe eight, I do not remember) of a mix of purple, bone and white. The tough part is to blend the cloth so that it has creases and texture. I am rather happy with the blending as it is a different kind of purple that I have decided to use here rather than my usual maroon-ish purple.
The gems are annoying as they are quite small to paint, but I managed to pull it off. The skulls are also quite a feat as I decided to try a different method to paint them, and I am happy with the result. To let the piece pop a little more, I decided that all ropes are to be painted a bright red.
Overall, this is perhaps one of my most favourite models to model and paint throughout my entire 40k life.
I have also decided to start upon making my first display board, as my Dark Eldar deserves it. In addition I also find that having my own display board also allow me to have a model tray of sorts. For that I have already drawn the basic idea of what I want the board to look like.
|Ur......which way am I supposed to go again?|
I am also wondering if I want to make some Eldar Wraithbone-like structures on the hills to show that the world is Eldar in origin, and would definitely be a theme tie-up with the Vyper wreck on one of my Razorwing fighter's base. Would definitely be interesting to see what else I could come up with.
|All ze foams......perhaps I bought too much.|
With that, I will be embarking upon my first terrain project and I am really looking forward to see the final result. See ya next time!
