    Dark Elf - an army of one ?

    Well no, not really - but this is the guy I did to test my colour scheme.

    I like it and it's quick enough for a whole army so here he is - the first of many ...

    That is a really impressive colour scheme. Nice, simple, and effective.

    Good Job

    Good job, the heavy highlight really works. It looks suitably moody and would be really effective spread across a large unit.

    When are we going to see some more?

    Really really like the model and your paint style.

    The shield is great too

    Glad you like him

    No painting for the moment as I am struggling with a BSB conversion for the army and have never done anything like this before

    I have never done anything like this before and might have bitten off more than I can chew.

    I wanted a mounted BSB for my army - I wanted him on a Pegasus as I bought a Morathi before I found out I can't use named characters here. I wanted a sea dragon cloak and of course a banner - oh and a shield

    Grind, saw, swear, glue, fill, swear, file, glue, melt, bend, swear etc etc etc

    Well now I have ground enough metal and plastic away to blutak it all together to see if I like him - If I can actually get it all together I think it will be ok

    PLEASE remember I'm new to this and it is a WIP but all comments welcome

    I like the colour scheme, the dark metals is set off very well against the blue tone of the cloth/shield. Nice work there. The BSB looks pretty good as well, nice pose - can't wait to see him painted.

    How did you acheive the dark metals?

    How did you manage to get the CoK legs onto the pegasus? I dryfitted mine but didnt manage to get a realistic look. More like Clint Eastwood.

    Ok - first the metals

    Black undercoat (obviously) then straight on with chainmail (but sometimes I use boltgun) then on with some devlan mud - nice wet layer and let it dry naturally. For the mail thats it.

    For the rest of the metal then a wash with badab black - not too heavy and detailing an extra bit where I want shadows and definition.

    For the armour i then add a very thin wash of thrakka green - maybe 3 parts water and 1 part green (sounds wrong i know but try it)

    Then a highlight with chainmail - I wanted this dark so didn't use mithril

    NB - I have only been painting for a few months and am no expert - just been reading what I can and working out some techniques that work for me
