Striking Scorpion Drazar by etiennekendrick Striking Scorpion Drazar by etiennekendrick
Now - this is my favourite eldar model. Hes not my best, far from it, but I just love the simplicity of the conversion.

Hes a dark eldar character model, the 'chain swords' on his arms used to be big veined backpack sections, and he used to have huge punch daggers under his arms, so off they came and replaced with the much better looking backpack bits.

The pennants are made from painted plain paper curled around a pencil, and they were added to hide the nasty join at the bottom.

This model was painted a fair while ago, so appologies if the paints I mention no longer exist in the range.

The model was undercoated white, then all the armour was painted dark angels green. The model was heavily black washed (Well ink back then).

The entire model was then drybrushed dark angels green, then emerald green (dont think that one exists anymore) and then finally a very gentle highlight of sunburst yellow.

Then, all the recesses of model were black inked again, as well as any areas of shadow I wanted to create (like the middle of the flat areas of the chain blades).

Finally I did line highlighting of emerald green and sunburst yellow around his face and shoulders to give him a bit more defintion.

I did get very lucky with this one. Many of the GW figures that have 'bits' that stick on to them have nasty unsightly holes that they go into and thus require extensive modification. On this model however, they simply look like smooth indentations.

I never would have guessed the part you used for the swords. It really does look fantastic. Bravo!
