G'day DoW!
With the background and poisoned blades explained, they are growing on me. Really like the flesh banners. Going to have a symbol tattooed on there?... Pointy ears forever!!

Glad everyone's on board with the purple and green, as I just added a whack more green to the package. Hopefully it reads as acid pools. I used ardcoat to give it a nice sheen.



Base coated a little more than twenty kabalite warriors before the airbrush nozzle clogged bad enough to need an overnight soak. Started on basing the raiders and will follow the lhamaean's example, if you guys are digging the acid bases.

Definitely digging the acid bases! Great job on the Lahmeans bud. You could probably use some Nurgle's Rot on the blades or something to make it look like they are dripping in acid if you want to take it to 11... thought it might be going too far. Anyway great stuff I love it!

I'm definitely liking the blades bud, they look just as poisoned blades should!
The acid bases look pretty great as well, good work!

These guys are a riot of colour :)

Can't believe I haven't noticed (or had forgotten about) the banners with added stitch-lines. Lovely touch :)

Acid pools are a great touch. Doing a display board that will add s great story visual.

Loving the retro look on these guys Dread. The acid bases look terrific.

If you went with Goblin Green base rims, it's be like looking through a portal back to 1992!

Thanks guys, appreciate the positive feedback guys.

Well I was base-coating my kabalite warriors with the airbrush when it clogged. Soaked it overnight and tried to clear it, but ended up snapping the nozzle. :(

It motivated me to get all my adapters in place and with a clever addition of an o-ring or two, I was finally able to get my old Badger airbrush working. I've also found some cheap replacement nozzles on eBay, so hooray for that.

And I gave up on coming up with my own runes and caved on using the vehicle transfers that came with the kit. Finally assembled everything and finished the bases.

Really nice work, purple is such a classic colour for Dark Eldar, and going with green is classic villain colours!

The runes on the sail set it off really nicely as well.

Those tranfers look perfect DoW! Just a great bit of contrasting color... I think you totally made the right choice. The acid bases look just freaking great. I'm all about it. This army is looking super classic. Keep it up man I'm loving this army!

Now that choice of transfer is perfect. Goes with the colors scheme so well. Amazing! Can't wait to see a full army pic.

Those transfers finish off the model perfectly. Just a small splash of extra colour, but nothing to take away from the dominance of the purple or the striking acid base.

Speaking of which, how did you do those bases? They are eye-achingly bright and really provide a massive visual impact.

Thanks guys. I was worried I would disappoint you by not coming up with my own design, but I couldn't settle on anything I was happy with and the transfers provided a nice clean finish. It's too bad that I had picked up two of those raiders second hand, as they didn't come with a transfer set. Now I'm scouring the web trying to find a decent value without paying an arm and a leg in shipping for what is essentially paper. I'm also missing a tiller from one of those second hand ones, which is almost as hard a bit to find as a blaster it seems.

Would it seem weird to have different glyphs on different raiders? I think so, but I'm open to suggestions.

As for the acid, I did a base of Kabalite Green, followed by Moot Green, then a 3:1 Moot Green and Ceramite White, followed by a 2:1 and then a 1:1. I finished it off with a good layer of ardcoat to give it a nice shine.

Let me check my bits box DoW. If I have some DE transfers, they’re yours.

I can hook you up with those transfers no problem DoW. Is all you need the orange sun type ones? PM me you address and I'll shoot them off to you. I'll try and find the extra tiller I have lying around too.  8)

Wow you guys are amazing! It would just be the transfer shown on the sail that I'm missing x4 (2 raider x 2 sides).

I'd cover the shipping charges or send you something back in trade.

Yeah if you still need some I'll have a rummage around and see if my eBay Raider kits came with transfer sheets :)
