Seeing some daylight has given me better pictures, though the low sun doesn't help tongue.png Here's my official group shot to complete my Xenos Files obligations:

I don't expect to win anything, but hopefully one of these pictures helps show the metallic on the Mandrake's skin markings:

Now I've had some time with them I'm thinking about having the bases black. It'd be unlike all my other armies but might work better? While I'm planning on redoing my existing models I do have five Scourges mostly built and primed white so perhaps they can be a DE project in the meantime...

They look great, I like that you made them more unique by giving the Mandrakes have different color "energy" emanating from them, can't remember seeing anyone else doing that.

Thanks Legionnaire, as I already got my second box by then I knew I'd need to try and give them some variety. As I give the Warriors and Wyches etc different hair colours so it seemed like a good idea as the methods are the same too smile.png I feel like with this week my hobby mojo has returned so I'm thinking I'll get round to the Scourges sooner than I initially thought.

 

Plus with the Daemons codex coming out now and the Thousand Sons one announced I'd like to try and be ahead of the curve for once tongue.png If I can get a 500pts army ready for when the codex arrives I'd consider it a great success laugh.png

I'm doing some "foundation work" on my DE currently, which involved digging this model out:

She's my first DE model, where I originally went with Rotting Flesh. That paint went I think, which is why my scheme changed a bit (at least, so I remember?). An attempt at stripping her didn't go very well as you can see but she won't be forgotten smile.png
