Dark Eldar: Scourges

I painted these Scourges in May, before the new Dark Eldar codex was released.  I wasn’t sure how much I’d use them (and they didn’t too well in the one Kill Team game I took them to….), but they sure are nice looking models.

I magnetize the shoulder joints of all my Dark Eldar infantry.  This lets me swap out equipment without trying to figure out who the special weapons guy is.  It also lets me have an armory of blasters, heat lances, splinter rifles, dark lances, and whatever else, ready to go on whichever unit.  The weapons in the pictures were just thrown on randomly.

The legs on these guys really sell the whole flying around concept.

I like how the fluids in the vials on the backs came out.  I was pretty worried about them, but I think it works pretty well.  These particular arms, though, aren’t quite so nice.

The huge wings makes transporting these guys a pain.  For the next unit, I may try to put magnets on the wings, although then I worry that they flop around the table.
