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)
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)
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.
