Dark Eldar Archon - finished & recipe for the gold.

So here he is in all his xenos glory! I'm not so pleased with how the huskblade turned out but I don't know if I'll bother repainting it. Let me know what you think...


After popular request here's the recipe for the gold, mostly "borrowed" from Eavy Metal's Dark Eldar masterclass in UK WD 371:

- Basecoat with a 1:1:1 mix of Tin Bitz, Dwarf Bronze & Scorched Brown
- Apply a second basecoat of 1:1 Tin Bitz & Dwarf Bronze everywhere except in deep recesses
- Wash the recesses with a 1:1 mix of Deval Mud & Badab Black
- Highlight with a 1:1:1 mix of Tin Bitz, Dwarf Bronze & Mithril Silver
- Highlight extreme edges with Mithril Silver (or with a 1:1 mix of Shining Gold & Mithril Silver for not so harsh highlights)

  1. I think the huskblade looks pretty good. Overall it's an excellent paintjob. Nothing to critisize here really.

  2. Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like the huskblade. Now I can get on with varnishing it and moving to the next project.

  3. Awesome paintjob, but you should try photograph it with a dark background. Without the great contrast, you should be able to better pick out the subtle dark shadings.
