Pictures of my Old Dark Eldar Wych Cult

I finally dug out my very old Dark Eldar army and took some shots of it. This army dates back quick a few years. I can’t remember exactly, but it was at least 5 years ago I packed it up for the last time. The army wasn’t quite finished, I don’t even think I finished a single model in the whole thing! But it was getting there.

Visually, I went a slightly different direction with these models then other Dark Edlar armies back in the day. Firstly, I really hated all the spikes and blades the original models had all over them. So out came the clippers and files. You wouldn’t even know they were gone without making a direct comparison to the originals. Secondly, I decided to go with a more ‘Drow‘ like paint scheme, with dark blue/grey skin. This gave the models a little more ‘alien’ feel and made it more obvious that these weren’t just naked humans running around. Not to mention it made the entire army stand out just that much more. I plan on keeping a similar scheme when I paint up some of the new models coming out.

I also spent a lot of time trying to make all the Raiders and Reaver Jetbikes look different from each other. I played around with all the fins, weapons, drivers and such to make each one individual. This won’t be as much of an issue with the new models soon to be released, and my Raiders and Reavers will probably be replaced anyway, but it was a good idea at the time!
