Dark Eldar Warp Beasts (Khymera/Dire Wolves)

Here is a few pictures of my most recently painted miniatures for the Dark Eldar force, A pack of five Khymera Warp Beasts ripped straight from the nightmares of a beastmaster.  I decided to go with a contrasting and vibrant paint scheme on these models trying to make the different elements of the sculpt stand out.  The Dire Wolf models are not my favorite, however i believe they support the materialization of a beast from the warp perfectly and view these beasts as "creating themselves" rather than the decaying imagery of the dire wolves.  I decided to go away from natural tones (as the warp is all but natural) Going for a predominately Blue/black, Purple and Green colour scheme.  The bone was painted a light grey washed with green the same time as the muscle and then further highlighted with more of the same grey colour.

New Dark Eldar and Skaven Mordheim Warband

A quick comparison between the new and previous ranges of the Dark Eldar Wych Model.  The one to the left was just recently painted as a prototype to go with my existing Dark Eldar force, after looking at the two side by side it is easy to pick out the difference in scale and proportion of the models,  although the old ones have the gladatorial feel to the the new models are all together much more unified and look much more cohesive as a force.  The under suit adds a new element to the model, which i've decided to paint with a visually black latex feel.  This is achieved by painting a base coat of necron abyss and then highlighting with fenris grey, after this give it all a wash of bedab black, and some asurmen blue, and voila instant latex/pvc catsuit.

Below is a picture of my current skaven Mordheim warband, the centerpiece, snich, is taking the role of my skaven assassin adept and was painted last week when ambition struck.
