Dark Eldar Hellion. Single miniature gold GDUK 2013.
I fucking love Hellions. That sky board is awesome.

I hate putting Dark Eldar together. I’ve assembled one jetbike and rider and my fingers are covered in superglue. 😡
Found this picture today and thought it’d be neat to show you lot.
I use this same technique of having an intermediate step of silver when I have been painting the purple on my jetbikes and Talos; makes it just… pop! Especially in comparison to the purple on the infantry’s leather and the sails of the raiders.
I’m finding that the more confident and better that I am getting at doing the basic stuff, the happier I am to play about and experiment with different techniques now. Used to hate painting, now it’s one of the most relaxing things I do.
Looking at this again today and I think I’ll use this method for the next squad of Khorne Bezerkers. Too late for the first set.
Avoiding painting my Dark Eldar? Moi? How can you say such a thing? 😥
I’d really kill for a light-box, or at least a functioning living room overhead light. In the interim, group photo! The one-thousand point bunch for Tuesday.
Touch ups needed on all of the skiffs, so I’m going to introduce them to the hair-drier technique that I’ve perfected on the Talos and Reavers.
Things I would like:
A display cabinet to keep the dust away (taking a leaf out of Amenhetop IV’s book).
Proper camera gear; tripod, macro filter, backgrounds, light box.
My house to be clean enough for the landlord to come down without suffering trauma. Clearly we have our priorities right.
I second all of your wants list. In that order.
Also: nice paint job!
My Harlequin Shadowseer. I’m really pleased with how the robes came out but I’m not too fussed about the rest.
The last Dark Eldar stuff I’ll do for a while because I’ve started a Chaos Space Marines army with my other half and I’m busy with that. Space Marines are so much easier to paint than those fiddly Dark Eldar.
I haven’t done any painting for a while, so I bought a Harlequin Shadowseer to paint a couple of days ago (y’know instead of painting one of the dozens of models I already have).
And you know what? Now I remember why I haven’t done any painting in ages.
Because Dark Eldar? Are the smallest, fiddliest, most detail-ridden sodding little models in the entire bloody pantheon of the 40K universe.
Why the ever-loving fuck did I pick these guys as my first army?
