I'm All In

It has truly been a whirlwind of Dark Eldar recently, hasn't it?

Well, that whirlwind continues. Today, on my way to work I decided to go ahead and grab a box of Kabalite Warriors and their Raider. I may or may not be clipping them off their frames around 9:00 - 10:00 tonight. You know, once everything goes from quiet to dead. I've decided I'm definately going for Splinter Cannons and Blasters for my Kabalites, as this makes them anti-horde capable. The reason for this purchase is to get a grip on how the army's paint scheme will go. For now I'm positive all cloth will be purple, and the bodysuits will be black. As far as the jade green goes, I'm just not sure. I may use it as an accent on the armor, I may paint all the armor plates on the models green. I may even reserve the green for a certain area of the model only. What is clear is that I'm sticking with my original paint scheme.

Assuming I get the models together tonight, the priming will occour tomorrow, weather permitting. I'll be under certain time constraints, so it's unlikely I'll be able to put a major dent into painting the minis, but I hope to get at least one color laid down. You can be sure I'll keep updating the blog with pictures as the project gradually comes together.

  1. I'll be curious to see how your scheme looks. I may have been considering putting some of those DE bits I have to use as decorations on bases and bannerpoles last night...
