Well, after our shopping trip, I ended up coming back with some Dark Eldar... bought Lelith and a Venom. Stupid addiction..

Didin't do any more work on my marine tonight, but I did assemble, and start to basecoat the venom.

As promised, here are pics from earlier and of the venom.

The white on the Venom looks beautiful! DE are another of my armies, and I can't decide on a scheme...though I'm thinking of going mostly white.

Thanks oceangrave!

Thanks dez! I had been on the fence about the dark eldar for a while now after realizing that I've had 3 marine armies and wanted something different but I couldn't bring myself to paint another dark scheme... So thus came the idea for a "light" dark eldar. I just hope I can pull it off decently :) not sure if what I'm going to do for a second color... Thinking either blue or orange, thoughts?

As for today, so far haven't gotten much painting done, actually none.. Stupid migraines. If I get any more done tonight ill post some pics tomorrow.

I'd say blue, but I am bias because, if you didn't notice from all my armies and stuff that I've worked on and started, I dislike warm colours and adore cool colours, mostly blue and green, not so much purple or bright greens

I'd say Blue, only because the accent colour on my DE is orange and I want to see variety ;)

Well, split down the middle... I think what I might try is doing both orange AND blue as an accent... not sure exactly how... but the only way to find out is to jump in and test it...

well, as for last night, I got really lazy and didn't get any painting done, so hopefully I will be able to get some done tonight, and will post pics :)

I am falling back in love with Dark Eldar so I am super excited to see what you're going to do with them. I still say larger orange accents with smaller blue :P

Haha, thats what I have been thinking... making orange the more dominant of the two colors... but I don't want to make it look too imbalanced... hmmm...

Well, didn't do any painting last night, at least on minis, ended up varnishing some trim for our house. Its a lot cheaper making it yourself, but its 10 times the work...

Hopefully I will get some more work done on my Deathmatch mini and Venom tonight, pics if I do, apologies if i don't :)

Painting your house counts! I mean, that's where you do your hobby painting... so let's just call it "hobby workstation improvements" ;)

Well, did some painting last night, a little detail work on my DM entry and did a lot on the Venom... only I did not like how it turned out... at all... so back to the drawing board... don't think orange is going to look like i want it to... so I am going to try blue and see how that turns out...

Probably won't get any painting done tonight, but hopefully will get some done tomorrow along with pics!
