Dark Eldar Hellions

When the previous edition of the Dark Eldar Codex where realised, I bought almost all of the new models (kits) - including Hellions. But eventually I decided to go with a shooty MSU list, and traded them in for other models. Now, 4 years later, during the expansion of my Dark Eldar army, I decided on revisit units I had previously discarded.

The amount of options you have when building Hellion’s, and the narrative behind this unit, it just awesome. And of course I had to ad some parts making them a little more macabre. In my opinion, the Dark Eldar models surpass almost all other army’s in the GW range. And although many of the models are a little fiddly to build, and are full of small parts and details that makes it challenging (for my anyway) to paint, it has been a joy to paint these models.

The Beast Masters are very similarly to the Hellions, baring typically the helmets. The Beast Master models are Finecast Models and expensive. I therefore decided fore some variety to make them work as both. And since they appearance are close to Wyshes, I went with my traditional painting pallet. Anyway, this is how they turned out.

What next? My Coven army needs some upgrades for the Raiders…

  2. Indeed! Sleek and deadly all over again...
    That's yet another fast unit added to what's probably the most mobile army in our group. We best dig in and hope to weather the coming storm.

    By the way... Am I the only one hearing that old WASP song in the back of my mind?

  3. I think we will all learn now how deadly these thing are, and when mixed with the rest of your fast army... it will hurt :-)
    Really nice paint job again, this Eldar / Dark Eldar army is looking grim dark and lovely.
