Yeah, so I was so excited to find those 20 Dark Eldar Warriors for half price the other day, I didn’t realise they were the old warriors, and not the new Kabalite Warriors.
That’s what you get when you a) are looking for a good deal, but b) don’t look at what’s in the bag before you buy!
Heh, it’s alright, though, I can definitely still use them. Compared to the new stuff, they have less details, less dynamic poses, and less overall options. But they will make fine unit fillers, and even better paint scheme test models.
Speaking of Project: Void Raiders (yes, that is the codename for my upcoming Dark Eldar project, whenever we get back into 40k), I spent some time today while the baby was sleeping to watch a few videos on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKngHSq565Q&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL is a great ongoing ‘series’ by Warboss Tae, whose videos I recently stumbled on, and quite enjoy. Well, other than that little intro of his 🙂
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tHEI4ydhXQ Here Doctor Faust comes up with a fantastic brown scheme for Dark Eldar that I’m going to try out myself. I’ve been debating whether to do a classic black with coloured edging look, or something different like this. Thankfully I have all those warriors to test schemes on now! Hah.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDM3L0KAeoY is not a new one for me, but is a long (even sped up) tutorial on painting a warrior. Well, this has a few too many steps for me. Maybe an Archon will get this kind of love, but there’s no way I can devote this much time to a single model in a game that requires a bucket of models on the table.
Anyway, this doesn’t mean I’m starting this project now. I just wanted to share today’s OOPS! finding.
Thanks for reading.
