Dark Eldar Archon


And we are back fellow gamers and painters.. and this time with the Dark Eldar Archon. Leader of the Incubi. Or at least he is in this case...

Again, I tried for the same kind of color scheme as the Incubi, but slightly different. I really wanted to go with a dark armor and have the cloak and the flames hold focus. Kind of like he is more int he shadows then in the fights themselves.

Then his blade I tried to make it an off bone type coloring. Like he carved it from a dead enemy.




And the purple cloak.. just cause the others have it also.

Biggest thing here was that to really try to make some BAM effects from the cloak. So I tried to do all the way down to smallest highlights in order to make the holes, and tars really pop out.



So that is another commission finished.. and put away.. now to get back to others and the Dwarf Bust. The infamous Dwarf Bust that will consume quite a bit of my time in the coming weeks... but I think it will be my best piece to date.. or at least I hope so :)

  1. Looks good :) also doesn'thurt that black, purple and green are my favorite colors, so what's not to like? I do like the bone sword too, very cool. I'm doing a project now that uses some dark eldar. fun minis.

  2. Hola
    Muy bueno si señor,me gusta el esquema elegido,es muy atrayente y muy del lado oscuro,esto la espada me gusta pero si te puedo decir y claro a titulo personal YO la perfilaría con un hueso claro las aristas y demás de la espada ya que es dicho que es como hueso para darle un poco mas de vida.
    P.D.
    Lo que dices en la otra entrada dalo por dicho,si vienes a España,sera un placer tomarnos algo.
    UN SALUDO

    1. Gracias JD.
      Yo podría ir por el borde y luego un poco más que para darle un poco más de BAM efecto. Gracias por el comentario.
      Y de hecho, si yo voy a España de nuevo (lo cual es probable! Un país tan bonito!) Entonces deberíamos reunirnos con seguridad! :)
      ¡Salud!

  3. Very nice mate. Is the sword meant to be that shape? It just seems odd to me but i'm not really familiar with the new DE range if I'm honesy

    1. Hey Simon, Yeah the pieces are all original. It is a weird bone crafted sword of sorts... not my favorite, but still decent. Thanks for the comments.

  4. Hm... Neon green and purple DO fit together it seems. Damn now I have to rethink the color scheme for my dark elves. ;)

    2. Have to check the colorwheel which color would also fit here. Would need something for painting the cold ones then :D
