Dark Eldar Raider

Now my Dark Eldar Kabalite Warriors have their own very ride, Dark Eldar Raider! Start the engine, navigator ready, dark lance ready! Time to slice some meat!

Wow, I am pretty happy with how my Dark Eldar Raider turned out with my colour scheme of copperish Citadel Tin Bitz with turquoise outlines. The Dark Eldar Raider colour felt in harmony with my Dark Eldar Kabalite Warriors scheme. With the 3 Dark Eldar Kabalite Warriors passenger, it really makes the Raider much more alive.

There were a lot of lines to paint for the Raider though. All the turquoise outline I blended with the same method I did for the Dark Eldar Kabalite Warriors. Sure it was lots of line to paint, blend and outline. But it was fun and the results is cool! As I mentioned before, 1 Dark Eldar Raider done, wow, 4 more Raiders to go… haha.

I had an idea earlier, was thinking maybe the next Raider I will try to convert and have all ten Dark Eldar Kabalite passengers sitting on the Raider. Will have to source for the legs bitz. Then my another Dark Eldar Raider I want to have the default 3 passengers to be Wyches instead of Kabalite Warrior. Guess the bitz for the Wyches leg might be hard to find or have to convert somehow… Anyway, let me get back to more painting… Cheers!

  1. This thing is gorgeous. You’ve created a great effect and captured something of the vile feel of the miniature range with your paint job. Nice work!

  2. Thanks… trying to get more Raiders painted. I can imagine having few Raiders and Ravagers on the tabletop would look amazing… Cheers!

  3. Hi the raider looks great. I was trying to do the same dark copper sort of effect on a few of my models and i was wondering if u could post a tutorial on how u gained that effect thanks.

  4. Thanks… actually the copper is just Citadel Tin Bitz, followed by Bedab Black wash, then highlight dry brush with Tin Bitz in the center areas… Hope this helps.. Cheers!
