Dark Eldar: Incubi

From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.

These Incubi are from the much-hated Finecast era of Games Workshop, complete with both bendy and crack-prone swords. Still, they turned out mostly okay.

The helmet and horns were one of my early successes with a wash and drybrush to get decent shading. The glowing eyes look good on the table, but don’t stand up well to closeup photos.

Dark Eldar: Kabalite Warriors

From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted old work. Lets show off some old Kabalite Warriors.

The Dark Eldar was my second 40k army, after Space Marines, of course.

Kabalite Warriors (green, group 2)

I painted the base edges color coded to match squad-specific sigils for their transports. The thinking was I could easily track which unit was in which transport, especially since that could change as the game progressed.

Looking back years later, I still like the bright edge highlights, though I wish it were more evenly applied. Sometimes you can really see the paint.

Dark Eldar: Wyches

From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.

It’s been a long time since I played 40k proper. But I still have the models. And most of them haven’t been featured on the blog.

Dark Eldar Wyches

At the time, the wyches were the assaulted-oriented troops for the dark eldar.

More Dark Eldar Wyches

The yellow bases match colored sails I made for the transports, so you could easily see which squad was in which transport.

Even More Dark Eldar Wyches
