Dark Eldar - Grotesques - Ørnulvs #5 (Dark Eldar related) project 2015

I posted an article on my Grotesques yesterday; instant feedback from my son (currently working on even more Carnis…), the venom canisters looked like ”light balls”, and they should have ”puss” and blood streaming from their surgery wounds and clamps. Oh well, an early Christmas morning and they have received a make over. I will keep my original text, but with updated pictures. 

It has been a while since my last post (Imperial Knights). In fact, I have not had the time ore energy to do any hobby work since this summer. But finally, I am back in the saddle again with several units about to be added to my Dark Eldar all ready fore painting.

The Grotesque model from GW is very expensive, and has one pose. Of course, I could try to repose them, but all in all I decided to go with a conversion from the Fantasy range. I used spare bits from the Dark Eldar Talos/Cronos set, as well as from Skaven and ordinary Dark Eldar kits. I also got to test my new “green stuff cable roller”.

I wanted them to have the same colour scheme as my other Dark Eldar units (Haemonculus), yet giving their skin a more tore and worn appearance. Of course this is due to the Covens constant alteration of their appearance.

Looking forward to more hobby activities and gaming in 2016.

Last but not least, I wish all of my fellow team members and all that follow our blog a merry Christmas!



  1. Great paint job as always!
    They look grotesque;)
    Merry christmas🎅🏼

  2. Lovely! ...in a creepy sort of way.

    Especially after you added the blood coming from the surgery wounds. Your son had the right idea!

    I'd advocate taking it a little further, though... Add a little thinned down blue/purple around the wounds to imply bruising and a few dark brown streaks to the blood to show coagulation. They've probably been leaking for a while...

  3. Sorry for the late feedback. These models are absolutely gorgeous (or maybe horrificly beautiful)!
