Welcome to Librarium Online!
possibly 'Whispered Sacrifice'?? As yet undecided about the name, but figured these DE were a splinter group from a larger kabal, cast out as too untrustworthy (or possibly escaped before they were killed?!). They are slavers primarily, but raiders as well...
Slightly controversially, I like DE to have darker skin... infact dark blue... Interested to hear others thoughts on the subject...
I have not used these in battle yet but would really appreciate criticism\comments. Anything to change? add? etc... to fluff, name, painting, modelling.... you know the usual
I will post more up later today....

I really like them.
The colour scheme is similar to mine in areas (although mine are slightly brighter) and I really like the idea of highlighting with yellow. That has turned out well!
Nice dioramas too.
I've never settled on a skin colour but i like to have a blue tinge to it
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
So you must be one of those eavy metal fellas. Incredible! I could only just make out the blue skinned sybarite but yeah looked mean as. I started with a grey skin, dark toned type too. Dark by nature, coincidentally dark by skin. The Mandrakes are the only ones that still have that colour though. Skin tones are quite tough when you have an atention span like mine:undercoat, base paint and wash and now what's on pornotube...ooh yeah
Just goes to show with a bit of love, DE can look amazing. The GW ones on site have a fairly uninspiring scheme that probably would not draw in too many second looks. Your stuff should go online dude!
thanks all, (not sure they are quite worthy of the eavy metal reference but thanks for the complement!! It would be a fun job though wouldnt it? Spend your days beer in one hand, paint brush in the other... I wonder if that is really how they work?).
I am struggling to upload more pics at the moment, perhaps due to file size? who knows, I will try later on again. I'll try to get my rather blue wytchs up for a bit of odd skin debate....
Always a pleasure to see DE painted like this, especially if it's similar to my Kabal XD.
I also use green, but only as hair, but I really like how you mixed up the green in the armor, I just use gold for most parts you paint green, but asides that the armor is similar in purple and black.
Only small remark I have ont he painting itself is : you could do a slightly better highlighting job. You have to use truly bright colors to highlight, I notice that you don't do this, especially on the green. Gold should also be highlighted; just mix up some bleached boen and gold and you'll have a perfect bright gold to highlight.
Your conversion work is flawless so far, nothing to say on that, except I'm glad that another DE player put wych blades on a warrior, it's a great combination.
Be sure to keep posting pcitures if you've got more stuff painted.
Very good color scheme, very subtle purple! And I somehow like the name "Unnamed Kabal".
Very subtle corpses on the bases, those are usually overdone, too gory, intestines hanging out etc.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
some more pics...
I'm going to try the dry brushing of blood as previously mentioned, but I quite like the understated gore. I shall try and see what happens.
still no help on the name of the kabal though. Unnamed kabal?? Its got a ring to it...
very sweet newly painted models, love the incubi!
I would never do the skin like this but it looks extremely good and awesome (even though you have to work a little more on the blending though)
I do'nt know why but I love the scourge, they may suck on the bttlefield, but this one looks so cool, the new warriors are as awesome as the last ones.At least you're humble, that's a good thing XD(not sure they are quite worthy of the eavy metal reference but thanks for the complement!!
Thing you need to work on: blending a little bit and highlights
Some highlights are excellent some are less good, like on the gold, look at gold pieces on Eavy metal stuff, maybe you'll see the difference and see what you have to do to improve your work.
Even so your work is truly impressive, it's very rare to find people who paint like you or even better, especially among DE players.
