What I'm Upto...


So, I've done a little bit of painting...
This is the tester for my Dark Eldar. To say I'm unhappy with it would be an understatement - it's turned out much darker than I planned. If you mind the pun. She looks a bit too Chaotic - I'd wanted to do something a bit different than the dirty, dusty, mucky stuff I normally paint, so this lady has just had a nice bath in Fairy Power Spray alongside the other four Wyches I've been on with. The plan now is to go for a colder scheme, pale purple with silver armoured pieces instead of brass and plenty of blood splatters.
Classic Chaos Warrior - this guy is a hired sword for Mordheim. He's also a tester for my Chaos army - the armour is supposed to be a sort of flesh-tone, they're going to be undivided but vaguely Nurglesque. I do love that he's wearing a beastman skin...
I've decided that I want to do something as a bit of a change, and the Space Hulk box was staring me in the eye - it's probably the wargame that'll get the most usage. Best get these sorted out...

  1. Changing a personal style is always a challenge, a fun one, but it's harder than we realise. I switched to a white undercoat for my zombie project to force myself to do just that and I bought some new, much lighter, paints too.

  2. Heh, that's pretty much what I have planned (as shown in my latest post!) - white undercoat, some different paints, trying out a wet palette. Hopefully I'll find a scheme I like!
