    Dark Elf Color Themes

    I was just wondering what dark elf color themes people are painting? At the moment, my army is Red and Silver, the red usually being scab red with a 1:1 mix of blood red and sun burst yellow.

    Also, is anyone else finding the corsairs are hard to get the right colors for? Any Suggestions for my 20 corsairs?

    Pics to come.

    Peace

    I am working on a DE army right now. I choose red for the cloth colors based on the fact that all the projects listed here had purple (the GW scheme) or blue and even one teal. I thought any shade of green was too Wood Elf oriented so I settled on red. I was trying to be different. But I guess that makes two of us with red now!

    I am waiting on some paint, but I will get a thread up under the Projects forum once I get my paint scheme laid out. This is my first paint job and my 1st army so classify me under novice and don't expect much!

    As for the corsairs... mine are in the mail!

    Let's see your pics!

    Nice work. I really like what you did to the cold one. Photos don't always convey true colors, but the red you chose looks good in the pictures!

    I have not taken photos of minis yet, so I am going to say that yeah maybe a little improvement on that would help. Though with 0 experience in it myself... it is probably harder than it looks! Here is a link on from this forum on how to take good photos http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...otography.html I'm going to try and follow it as soon as I have something to shoot

    Post more pics as you paint more stuff!
