|Third Edition Boxed Set Dark Eldar|
Well they just popped, so I can share what I have done so far. These showed up in our Deathwatch campaign as a twist to the mission we were deployed on, so we were not tooled up for them!
I don't have the most recent DE Codex nor was I able to get a hold of more current DE bits. The sprues only had slinter pistols, rifles and cannons, so I looked at some of the models on GW's site for weapon variation ideas.
These were built with RP'ing in mind and not wargaming, so I wasn't trying to make proper squads, but here is the rundown of what's what:
- Warrior w/ Splinter Cannons x3
- Warrior w/ Splinter Rifles x10
- Warrior w/ Splinter Pistols/CC weapon x3
- Sybarite w/ Hand Flamer/CC Weapon
- Sybarite w/ 2-Handed Axe
- Sybarite w/ Dark Lance
- Sybarite w/ Agonizer and Poisoned Blade
- Dracon w/ Hell mask, Poisoned Blade, and Psychic Energy
I wish I could have also made 1-3 models each from the other unit in the DE range, but I just wasn't able to.
The paint scheme turned out much brighter than I intended. Since this project was a quickie and possibly-one-use-mob, I wasn't up to edge highlighting these models. Instead, I chose to dry-brush. Unfortunately, I was too liberal with the base coat and covered up almost all of the black. I intended to go back with some washes to darken up the armor, but I ran out of time.
I will still finish up the last bit of detail before boxing them up for long term hyper-sleep.
