I've finished the first batch of Shadow Spectres, the three models on the left. They just need an aspect rune transfer on their brows. I'm really happy how the paint scheme turned out, and very pleased of the crystal effect. I already started the second batch by painting the armour and basecoating the weapons. Hope to get them finished soon. With the new Dark Eldar releases, I'm really tempted by adding something new to my Dark Eldar collection.
How do you like the three finished models?

Just in time for the rerelease of Space Hulk we bring you something special here on Tale of Painters: A tribute to the iconic Terminator armour (also known as "tactical dreadnought armour"). It's bulky silhouette is striking fear into the hearts of traitors and xenos alike, but it is also a welcome addition to any painters' collection. Check out part 1 of our epic showcase of Terminator squads, this time with contributions from Garfy and Stahly.

Spent some quality hobby time over the weekend getting this guy assembled and base coated. Using a Rat Ogre from the Island of Blood and a Stormvermin kit. The blade is just a piece of styrene and the reins are green stuff. He is looking pretty epic.

Hey there, I made some good progress on the first batch of Shadow Spectres, check them out. You can now get a good impression of what the paint scheme will look like. With my Saim-Hann Eldar, I chose to feature the craftworld colours prominently on all my aspect warriors and keep the "shrine colours" muted and subtle. I felt this made my Saim-Hann collection as a whole a bit drab, so for my Iybraesil army I'll do it the other way round.
This is why I chose a bright silver for the armour instead of a ghostly grey, and painted the ribbons turquoise and jade green. The crystals in the weapons will become a pinkish red, adding another spot colour to the models. Can't wait to finish them, I always love the moment when a paint scheme I came up with turns to life. How do you like the paint scheme?
