Since I have no idea which weapon is which, I went by 'this looks like something I'd want to use in Warframe'. After all, Dark Eldar are some kind of murderous space ninjas from an ancient race with mysterious technology that raid the established forces, right?

 

Also, I got totally carried away painting and (thanks to vacation) got them completed! Which scheme do you prefer?

 

boQtcAN.jpg

 

 

 

Oh my, these are gorgeous. wub.gif  Great job! and the first DE completion no less!

 

 

Really nice work, TPS! (And +1,000,000 for the Warframe reference.)

 

I finally got my magnets in, after considerably more effort than anticipated. Wraithblades aren't hard to magnetize, exactly, but it's fiddly work. Especially considering the mold line cleaning that I do basically concurrently. The process ended up stretching out over six separate sessions, because that's all the attention span I could muster. On the bright side, once the magnets were in, it was pretty trivial to complete the assembly stage.

 

 
I left Vengeance Scream's arms off to show the magnets, but it's not all that clear.
 
On to primerizing.

 

 

Great work on the magnetising Greywing! I need to do that for my Wraithguard when I get to them biggrin.png

 

It always amazes me how quickly you knock minis out TPS! Loving both but I like the dark brooding scheme more. The wings are brilliant!

Little more progress. I've done the heads, accidentally used gloss varnish so need to dampen down the shine. Also got fed up waiting for my paint delivery so went to a geedubs and bought what I needed. Base coat and wash applied.

med_gallery_141590_15861_654982.jpg

 

Great job on the blue, the red is looking great too. Looking forward to more progress biggrin.png

 

Well there has been some amazing progress so far, a real joy to read-through the thread and see so many great models.

 

Captain Coolpants, stunning Corsairs!

 

TPS, love the Scourges, both schemes are great. 

 

 

So after rummaging around some of the older parts of my collection, and some quality time on ebay (originally to find some replacement parts for broken metal, but then I found some other stuff as well) I now present my entry for this event:

 

I, Trokair, vow by to complete one Epic Warlock Titan, who is protected by two Epic Bright Stallion Knight, and lastly (the youngest of the lot) one Dark Reaper Exarch (just because I felt like painting one) before November 14th.  

 

gallery_29932_13461_14627.jpg

 

 

Now I just need to strip them, glue them and have good weather for undercoating, then the fun can begin.

Epic is a curveball but definitely a welcome one! Welcome aboard Trokair happy.png

I got the Warlock finished and got the Wraithlord done too. This is my first forray into contrast and it's definitely an new experience for me, it flows way differently than I thought it would

Good stuff, turned out very nicely I think. Contrast is a useful tool in the armour but one I'm still only testing currently for old habits die hard :lol: All the Wraith models are really great enough to make me a bit sad DE don't get them :P

What do you mean? Wraiths are dead on the outside and alive on the inside (of a gem) and DE are alive on the outside but dead on the inside ;)

While the armour doesn't make for the most exciting of work it's a good milestone as the rest is details :) A fair bit of them but should fit into my free time for it :P

@TPS I vote for a squad of both! Great schemes, the bone is bolder and I think more successful due to the high contrast and reduced palette but the teal/purple is a combo I also really like (have used on my Eldar previously) Is there an army coming out of this exercise?

An army is unlikely, but I might do a Kill Team. Those Scourges are a lot of fun to paint!

While my Craftworld Laenyrchal stuff is drying from the airbrush, I'll up my ante and get something in that I can finish quicker.

I pledge to finish one troupe of the Masque of the Furious Lament to be painted before the 14th of November.

Thanks TC. I used turbo Dork's color change paints. I started with the one called "let them eat cake" but it was to dark so went over it with "Miami sunset". Really achieved what I was wanting and so different from my scheme of many years. Hope to have them done by this weekend.

No, this is more of an additional vow- haven't finished my first vow because it will take longer- I can do these guys at work easy comparedto the Wraithlord/War Walkers.

Still unsure about these colors. Gems are a bastard with nerve damaged hands. I would dearly like some C&C. Also, home-made basing tips? My budget for supplies is non-existent.
