I am fortunate in the subject I teach that colleagues are often like-minded. one such is a fellow wargamer and blogger, and he asked me how I would go about painting dark eldar flesh in order to achieve a particular result. these are my initial experiments.

The inspiration – a character from Destiny I believe. I started with two heads, primed white and mounted on cocktail sticks.

A wash with asurment blue, diluted.

a mix of warlock purple, just a tip, and white for highlighting, finished with shadows in baal red, black eyes and collar and a bone/blood head adornment et voila.

a little too warm on the purple, so for the second, we aim to stay more blue.

Primed white base again (airbrush primed with vallejo white primer)

And here they are together. I may need to use the third head I have to stay even more blue. but we shall see.

  1. I think you need some green in with your blue. A warmer green perhaps?

  2. Definitely liking the left head's subtly.
