Dark Eldar Coven Raider & Venoms





"Death? You want death? I'm afraid that would be far too boring."

-Lord Sarnak of the Kabal of the Black Heart








I'm so excited to have finished these vehicles! Just more bloody craft for my Coven Forces!

  1. They are Beautiful. The blood and the banner, the blue and green OSL. You have really outdone yourself this time.

  2. Wow I love it how you add all those bright spots of colour to break up all the black. Very inspiring!

  3. Absolutely awesome - the OSL is brilliant as always, and the muted color scheme really gives them a sense of menace.

    I may have missed it, but how did you get the shimmer/dot effect on the sails? Is that an applique or did you paint it that way?

    Keep up the great work!

  5. Thanks everyone for the compliments! In reference to the Sails... I made a decal for the panels, then after I applied them I "blended them into the paint job by airbrushing layers of Black wash :)

  6. As Ive just began rolling with the DE myself (and yes, i did check out the dark city, thanks!), what continues to capture me with your models is the coloration you use. Simply fantastic, fun to look at, and yet not over powering...

    Unrelated question, you ever convert up a razorwing flock? Any ideas? Your grotesque were that amazing, figured Id ask!

    1. Thanks Don! Funny you mention that about that about the razor wing flock. I was trying to figure that out myself recently.

      I bought a bunch of these tomb king scarabs:

      I'll make a few bases with a dozen or so scarabs on each one, like a swarm of evil hungry buggers. I'll paint the ones with wings a metallic color like tiny little razorblades :) I'll probably have some of them swarming around a statue head or something like that.

    1. Slice and Dice tactics... They literally mow people down with the edges of their ships and rip them open with chain flails on the bottoms :)
