Vampires almost ready WIP

Based the two raiders, and now waiting on parts to base the last one in a hopefully more spectacular way to make the hunter the centerpiece.  Besides FW designed this one poorly for mounting so I need to come up with something unique as a mount.

Blood, it...brings out my eyes

Made the hunter a little less monochrome pushing it darker and added some eye detail. I didnt want a traditional eye so I went for a crazy split and fracturing iris.  The hunter must destroy its prey as the mere act of looking at it is painful, and only the fine charred mist of a splashed enemy can sooth this pain.

Vampire Hunter WIP: Our soul burns!

Finally on fire.
Still have the bottom to paint, and to figure out how to finish the top of this.
Then the canopy of both,  gems maybe, etc etc.
The eyes should be fun....
Notice the scorpion winged tails on the vertical stabs. I rather like those.=)

Soon the Reaper of Dras'Volhar shall be unleashed to cleanse the galaxy.

Vampire Hunter: WIPs

I am still not sure how I like the progression of this guy.  But thats not too unusual until Im about 3/4 complete.  I just have to trust I have my order of operations correct or I have to start over or adapt.

So we have The Vampire Hunter.  As the client said for his color scheme oranges to sandy or bone  I was inspired to actually go bones.  Then I thought vampire and so I wanted to make a mythical Eldar equivalent of a vampire creature with creepy looking wing claws (modeled after a lot of different bat and bird wings)  and a vicious looking head.  It definitely needs work but, it may have potential....
Its not dead yet!

Dras'Volharr Craftworld Rune

Ive been gemming both fighters and finally got around to painting the craftworld logo we made up for it.  This is GIMP'ed a bit to improve contrast and choose the best of the 4 Ive painted so far onto the two ships.  99% airbrushed about 1.2 inches tall  with the gem highlight the only thing using a 00 brush.

GIMP'ed for printing to transfers or use in his codex.

And a little further... Just cuz I could.

Vampire Raiders are now 98% done! Canopy gem highlights, and final clear is about all thats left. Well and I  need to base them soon.

ICE Vamp WIP dark crystals

I painted the guns to for a few base coats, added darker red-violet crystals/fractured dark panels to the trailing edges and a few panels to bring the feel of this one a little more in alignment with the clients army and the other vamp.  painted blue glow on the bottom of both of them, golded and shaded the engines,  and touched upa  few details.   Next gems, finish weapons, cockpit, maybe touch up crystals a bit,  touch up engines a bit more  I may go green crystals as some of the clients minis have green crystals and blue will disappear on this.
