Dark Eldar Archon & Trueborn, plus Blogger Award

A WIP of the Archon can be seen HERE. I broke out my airbrush to try and make a pink crystal type of effect for the Power Sword. It's not 100% what I was going for, but it's close.

The Trueborn I wanted to look like More embellished Kabalite warriors. I wanted them to have a bit more uniformity than the warriors, hence the same helmets and I wanted everyone to have a backvane. I used Wyche backvanes, but played around with adding / removing elements on each vane so they looked unique. I added some skulls here, cut some out skulls/ trinkets there, etc.

As far as weaponry, I was going for an anti-infantry with Splinter Cannons and Shredders. I plan to put these guys in a Venom when the kit comes out.


I was contacted by Mr. Feral the other day (via comment) that he had nominated me for a "Stylish Blogger Award". What is the Stylish Blogger Award? Well it's a kind of virtual pat on the back from another fellow Blogger to say "well done, spiffing job and whatnot" and to spread the love and good feelings between us hobby bloggers. As with the standards of the award, I must do the following four things;

• Thank and link back to the person giving you the award
• Share seven things about yourself
• Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
• Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award

So thank you Mr. Feral for the nomination, and to everyone else go visit his blog (link above) straight after you've finished this post. Now since I usually don't do chain letter type things, and 5 is my Lucky Number, I'll just shorten this into something more quick and simple.

5 quick facts about me:
• I'm Married and soon to be Father of a baby boy due in August.
• I'm a Graphic Designer by trade.
• Einsturzende Neubauten is my favorite band.
• I have over 5000pts. of Chaos Marines with about 2500pts finished and painted.
• I'm currently half way through finishing 3000pts of Dark Eldar
