Alert! Dark Eldar Pirates sighted.

The Imperium moves to claim the galaxy, but is opposed on all fronts by hordes of xenos filth, and those misguided humans who resist the Imperial Truth. Who knows what other horrors will be discovered...?

They're looking really good so far.
“People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.”

My Wraith Haemonculus is built, I just have to base her up and paint her (which will hopefully be before 2025).


I made a few mistakes with this model.


First is that I should have had her perched on her other leg (which was my original plan).


Second is the hovering leg should have been bent more at the knee to make it look more acrobatic as though she's leaping, not striding into thin air.


Lastly, I may have been better off giving her "Bladed Wings" like I did on my Wraithlord/Talos Pain Engine conversion.

I've put my Wraith/Haemonculus on a 32mm base and photographed next to a Wraithblade.

I've begun easing myself back into painting with some Dark Eldar (and a WB Chaplain).

My Archon's Court expansion, plus Haemonculus.

Unpainted:


Foundation layer of Charadon Granite, highlighted with P3 Thornwood Green and Traitor Green, then shaded with two layers of Nuln Oil, and drybrushed with original colours.


Grotesques.
Unpainted:


With foundation of Charadon Granite and highlighted as the Archon's Court.





Court of Archon, plus Grotesque, with flesh painted and highlighted with other colours started on.

Flesh was painted Tallarn Flesh, leaving the grey showing in the recesses of only the Ur-Ghuls and Grotesque, then Dheneb stone was used to highlight. Washed the Ur-Ghuls and Grotesque with Leviathan Purple, and the Lhamaean was washed with Gryphonne Sepia followed by Leviathan around the eyes, in the cleavage, cheek hollows and ears.
Drybrushed with Tallarn followed by Dheneb.


Photographed in direct sunlight.
