Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok, I think that aside from a minority of us, we could all agree the Dark Eldar warriors and models in general really suck. So what I'd like to know, is have you ever seen anyreally good Dark Eldar models?
Like Golden Daemon painted good. Because let's face it, in the Gold Daemon contests, how often do you see DE? Aside from the occasional Archon or Archite, you probably only ever see them in duels as the ones getting slaughtered.
So I was just wondering if you could refer me to some awesome conversions, or paint jobs off of dark eldar warriors. Because I sold my large dark eldar army so I could start up 500 pt. army which I'm going to use almost exclusively for all 500 pt. game. Which are one of the more common tournament point uses at my local store.
heres a nicley painted and converted DE warrior, it didnt win any awards but it nice. Its actually painted pretty much the same way mine are, except the helmet is green not white, and the gun is silver
Also heres a really cool raider squad
And a very cool Asdrubael Vect
And heres another super cool raider
and heres a very nice talos
And here are two very nicley converted lords
more raiders, this one is very nice

Though if you want to paint them good then Paint them good! If you paint an army to look like the first one (quite simple really) it would look great! Now, its understandable that you spend more time on other models beside Warriors. Though if you make paint the warriors good people won't say anything.
And I say:
Dark Eldar models don't suck! >_<
I've been playing DE sence 1999 and there are allot of even more ugly models. (Just look at the new High Elf mage... the body is female but the face got extreme male looks, now you wouldn't want that kind of model!
The raider plates look good only the models face's could use a litlle more colour if you ask me ^^. Anyway ive speed painted my De 2 so they aint great either. The first army im serieuly painting is the high elves that im building now. It took me 4 days just to paint 1 silver helmet!.
However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.Learn from yesterday.
Live for today
Hope for tomorrow
Any Dark Eldar army can look good, especially with converions in to replace some of the "duff" models and a decent paint job, just like above ^^

I agree, any dark eldar can look good with a good paint job. That' why I like to see good colour schemes. Because obviously marines are the most common army, and I've been experimenting with their colour scheme to see if I can a great colour scheme to work with my warriors (so far unsuccessful).
But I've had those moment where you bring your model to your local shop, they guys behind the counter look at the model you hand them, and say "wow, you assembled that warriors pretty good", then you're thinking 'yeah, little did he know I spent an hour converting this little bugger, and he though it was straight out of the box'.
Being that the DE are as uncommon, it's very rare people take notice of the small conversion you add. Unlike, when I bring my marine army and people notice all the conversions.
But I have to say the most easily, and attractive model would have to been a character on a reaver jet bike.
