#theweeklypaint of Knibz

Post by knibbler » Wed Jan 16, 2013 8:19 pm

Hey guys, it's been some time since I've been around so I figured, new year, new goals, fresh start.
I didn't fair too well in last years Daily Paint so I thought what better way than to follow in the footsteps of the great Epic Duck and partake in #theweeklypaint of 2013.
I'm hoping that this thread will not only help me share and learn more with the community but allow me to keep track with my painting.

The main feature of this thread will be my Dark Eldar, of which I have roughly 2500pts.
You'll also see my progress on my part of the #warmongers twitter project #ForgeWorldOnly where I will be building and painting a Minotaurs army, starting with Chapter Master Asterion Moloc..

My first week of this thread will begin as of Sunday 20/1/13.

Here's a few pictures of where I'm at with my current progress so you all know where I'll be starting from..

Looks awesome so far.. The Dark eldar flyer makes me think of Batman Beyond for some reason.

You have lots to paint! I love the line work on the Raider, I hope the same pattern will be on the Razorwing as well.

Love those Army Painter brushes!

I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.

Thanks for the comments peeps!
@Mike- you may have seen it around twitter, it consists off all the Dark Eldar I got for Xmas from my wife and brother-in-law. That's quite the haul you have there in yours :)

I think Mike was refering to the fact it look similar to his own picture of dark eldar...

Welcome to the world of Dark Eldar. Great minds must think alike...on paint scheme's at least :) The red just feels right, doesn't it? Hope my razorwing comes out that well, can't paint a straight line to save my life :(

Is there gold in your ravager, or is it just a trick of the light. I really like the effect.

Great minds certainly do think alike lol :P I just couldn't see any other colour scheme working for me..
To be honest I didn't think mine was going to come out that well at all, really pleased with it.
No gold on the then Raider or on any model for that matter, I really haven't found a gold I like using.. Not even a drop of gold on the Minotaur, all brass and bronze as well as the detail colours.

Apologies for the lack of updates guys! Wasn't able to get much done last week, at least not enough to update about. Though, things are looking up... Got myself some painting time today and tomorrow.
