Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

Yes, my problem is trying to do too many things at once, oldhammer - on going development of Green skins, Chaos, Dark Elves, empire & Slann / Lizardmen and then we have the projects - a ship & crew for BOYL 2015 to name but one and my new want a Wood Elf army from Thunderbolt Mountain! Oh, almost forgot the 40K stuff - marines & eldar.
Then we have the on going painting of Ancients - Gallic/Gauls, Assyrians, Persians, Feudal English, Romans all in 25mm and as for WWII don't get me started. All boils down to how do you eat an elephant one bite at a time - keep up the good work. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

I've added some more of Mengil Manhide's warriors to my regiment. This must be the most produced Dark Elf model of its time, and the casting quality shows that the mould was past its use by date. I did some filing and outright cutting and in hindsight should have been even more aggressive, but I have to let it go now and hide the individual irregularities by force of numbers.

Sweet! Very nice work as usual. Your DE's colour scheme is one of my favorites on the internet. I think that DE's should be predominantly painted black, it adds to the menace. Fantastic looking shields also!

I find the lack of dessicated nipples disturbing.

Actually, I find the lack of nipples in any model disturbing.


Um.. am I gonna get kicked from the forum now???

I presumed they'd been cut off to play Tiddlywinks with around the campfire. On closer inspection, most nipples do still seem to be present though, I'll just need to colour them in more prominently.

Thanks! There was never a question that I wanted them mostly in black. From the distance across the battlefield they looked too dark, so I started offsetting that by adding pure white on the shields.

I finished a detachment of crossbowmen and painted my first Doomdrake (after equipping her with a lance to replace a rather un-cavalry-like short sword).

Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

Fab stuff!

The whole army is coming together nicely!

Great idea to swap the sword out, she looks very menacing now! Nice work on the 'Lizard' - the green is very reptilian and rich and the fade into the lower legs is sublime, top stuff sir!

Cheers
