More WIP's and the end of a mini-exchange

It's been a while, and I know that this seems like my targets, goals and good intentions for 2011 are flying out of the door allready. However, it's been crazy like hell in my life last weeks. Last weekend me and my pals from the Saints ran a grand tournament for Fantasy in Tilburg(the Netherlands). 56 Attendees....good times and not much sleep. The GT was also the closing date for my mini-exchange. Some pictures of my finished entry:

The Dark eldar mini is the more or less finished stage of my test model. I need to do some freehands on the canopy. And my army-mini's will need to be a little more detailed and less of a rush job. But I'm quite happy with the colours. The gems/display have been altered to some scorpion green/golden yellow mix, and I like it much more than the orange version. The idea is to draw the free-hands in the same bright green colour. I hope this turns ou all right.

As allways comments, suggestion etc... are more than welcome(altough still absent for the moment ;-))

More progress on the dark kin

Hi guys,

a very quick post with some nice pictures :-D
I almost finished my test reaver jetbike for my dark eldar.

Not much time to elaborate right now, but I wanted to show them.

I'm looking for ways to improve/finish them. As allways I've been pondering colour schemes etc.. and the orange gems don't work for me. I'm thinking maybe turquoise/ scorpion green as a better solution. I also still need a colour to finishe the bodysuit and free-hands tribal markings on the canopy. Suggestion more than welcome!

Finally finished

Hello again!

It's been a while, but last week was crazy @ work. A new guy started to work for me so I've been rolling a lot of leadership tests :-P
 No seriously, there is a lot of training to be done. And the more time spent now, the more the effort will hopefully pay itself back.

But back to serious business: "the hobby"
Out of the multitude of running projects, some are finally approaching completion.
Before the start of  2011, I finally managed to finish a Uruk-hai army for war of the ring. I painted this, just table top quality, but there are quite some dudes in the army and there's allways a big to-do list to contend with :-D
Anyway, a year later than anticipated but finally finished:
you can see some other projects:
2 boodbowl teams, a revell model of the HMS Victory(good to try out my airbrush) and of course the dark eldar!!!
One of the other projects I need to finish is the model that I'm painting for a friend. I should finish it by the 22nd of January. So hopefully I'll share some WIP's and finished pictures between now and 2 weeks from now. I'd also like to post some progress on the dark eldar....tune in next time(I'm becoming quite pleased with what I have done up till now
