Not much to report on my end hobby wise for good and happy reasons that I'll probably blog about in the near future.
I've made a real start on my Dark Eldar / Eldar force though with the Kabalites/Trueborn/Archon models. So far it's just the basic colours to get an idea of the tones I want to work with and push myself with some new techniques. I've never spent a lot of time with the edge highlighting style so I decided that it was the perfect way to challenge myself and make the pointy Kabalites stand out.
All the models followed the same process over a black undercoat:
- Drybrush scab red. Messy but cover it all.
- Progressively lighter drybrushing (twice I think) mixing P3 Khador Red Base into the Scab red.
- Edge and area highlighting with Khador red (and patience).
This is from the new Fuji camera. I'm still working out how to best do Macro with it. The panorama shots are great but macro isn't quite where I want it.
Archon Saban (taken with the old camera). I spent a lot of time on her armour, really going bit by bit to make her stand out more. I like how it's turned out.
The group ready for battle minus one who didn't fit into the frame of the photo. I think this army will turn out very nicely.
All the best
