And to do that, we need a sweet ride! We have one right here... sporting the Blood Star icon.
Of all the vehicles, I think I was looking forward to this one the most, as it had some of the best freehand opportunities.
The large sail was obviously a perfect canvas.
Also, this has been the classic notion of a Dark Eldar army all along. I could not wait to put my spin on this iconic vehicle!
It's not an easy thing to paint, that's for sure, as I had to paint a number of the parts before I could even think about putting it all together. Some of them were deep interior pieces.
Getting the crew to be in just the right position was also more difficult than I expected.
There are certainly a number of things that could go horribly wrong with painting pieces first, but there was just no way I was getting my brush into some of those areas!
Front and back. There are also a number of WIP images here, including all the work on the underside:
The next set of images will feature the guys who rode in this. Kind of a surprise :-)
