40k Dark Eldar - Kabalite Warriors (and Sslyth) painting continues

Caught another break in the weather yesterday evening and this afternoon and managed to get a little closer to the finish line with the Dark Eldar. Finished up the yellow cloth, and got the silver done and the first couple passes for the gold before being driven from the loft by the heat.


Next up will be the rest of the gold highlights, as well as the leather and gems. Should be able to get them done in time for the event (though I will likely be frantically painting Saturday morning)!


I'd started the trio of Sslyth for the Court of the Archon a little while ago, and figured I'd go ahead and bring them up to speed with the Warriors while I was doing the colors. Really dig these guys, and really feel that GW ought to do more one-off Xenos species models like these - bring back Ambulls!

One of the things I find your are really good at is colour combinations, you tend to find nice ways these things work together. Bravo. Coming along really nicely.

Still makes me laugh the Sslyth are named after Harry Potter!

The aliens look like a ripoff from slaanesh (daemon Fulgrim anyone?), nice combination of colors, quite emperor's childrenish

The purple green combo is just eye popping fantastic. Looting that :)

Ambulls Zoats and Squats, yesss....

These look smashing mate. The purple is rich and contrasts well with the mustard.

Nice purples, looking good! I love the sslyth models, great sculpts.

Ah, Ambulls. Usually 'controlled' as pests - they scare off the grox.
