Dark eldar work in progress

So far, I've got 9 models done and 1 to go for the first Kabalite Warrior unit (just needs gun put on and to be put on a base) and I've started on the Raider (to be equipped with dark lance and no models hanging on) and Drazhar (who will be painted purple, like the rest of them).

I've got some Elf Flesh paint that I'll use for the skin colour for the Wyches, who will be the next unit to paint up, while I get some Chaos Space Marines re-painted in the Kings of Chaos paint scheme.

Dark Eldar painting started

Now, I have the following for my Dark Eldar forces:
10 Kabalite Warriors
10 Wyches
5 Incubi
1 Raider
I've finally settled on what colour scheme I will use and the main colour is Liche Purple (over a black undercoat).
Some armour plates are Dwarf Bronze and the leathery/ flayed flesh will be painted Khemri Brown. Hair will be painted with Mordian Blue, followed by drybrushing with Ice Blue.
So far, I've painted one model (Kabalite Warrior with splinter rifle) and maybe I'll put a picture up of her later (or on Deviantart).

New Dark Eldar out!

Yesterday, I got my hands on the new Dark Eldar codex for 40k, giving Dark Eldar their first new proper codex in 12 years. I also bought a box of Kabalite Warriors, as a starter, to see whether or not I'll do at least a decent job in painting these guys properly. Once I've got that figured out, I'll have a better idea of where to go next with them.
I must admit that these guys have some very nasty armaments available to them that don't care how tough their targets are. Ravagers could also be fun at chucking out either 3 dark lance shots or up to 9 disintegrator shots (for killing heavy infantry).
Special characters that come to mind are Lelith Hesperax (Dark Eldar close combat super-bitch from hell) and Drazhar, Master of Blades (Is this guy a Dark Eldar Phoenix Lord?)
No doubt, after my participation in my local gaming club's 40k competition (Which I affectionately named 'The Scumbag Cup') comes to an end, I'll no doubt see how my armies fare against n…
