WIP: Dark Eldar Razorwing

My regular SM client had a bunch of Eldar stuff, and we thought it'd be cool to make him a Dark Eldar army out of it. Here's the Falcon from the battleforce box, cut up and repurposed into a Razorwing fighter. As you can see, there's still a great amount of greenstuffing that needs to be done, but I like the way it's come out so far. 

What's making this a real challenge is that there are no actual DE bits, and any jags or huge fanged things I add to this only detract from the overall design. Plus, I need whatever smallish blades I have in my own bits stores for the Venom and Jetbikes in the box, so I can't go crazy making this thing a barbed nightmare. Sigh.  

Still on the workbench for this project:

20 Kabalite Warriors 
6+1  Wyches (Banshees) 
3 Scourges (Swooping Hawks) 
3 Jetbikes
1 Talos (Oh, this one came out really fucking cool. Trust me) 
1 Haemonculous (A Warlock with a few extra arms and green stuff robes)
1 Venom

And it's all for cash, so I'll be back-burnering my other projects, including my Knight Warden, which makes me very sad. On the other hand, thanks to the shit economy I haven't had a steady 9-5 since '09, and I really, really, really need the money. 

Speaking of which, I've just put up a resin Super-Deformed Aliens kit on eBay.

It's a neat little item, and would make funny addition to someone's Nid army. The model is cast in yellow resin, and when assembled is about 3 1/2 inches tall by about 2 1/2 inches wide; perfect MC size. If you want a weird Hive Tyrant or just need a bizarre new buddha for your house shrine, then this one's for you, and it's a steal at $20. 

Happy Monday, People.

maybe add a reaver jet bike front to the cockpit make it look more DE, throw some extra bits from a raider kit or something. my two cents
