More WIPs...Howling Banshee Exarch pt5, Dark Eldar Incubi pt1

Some quick WIPs for you to look at. The first is one you are probably getting tired of seeing.

     I really have not had a lot of progress on this Banshee Exarch because I am struggling to get the weapons to a point I am happy with. I worked on the weapons a bit and I think I am real close to where I want to be. I really wish I could get a better picture of the weapons. They look ok here but I could not really get a top down angle of the shot to best show what I have here.

     I also mounted it to a base and did a bit of work on the base with some weathering powders.  This is a first with the powders for me and I am happy with what I have got for a 1st try. I am sure I will get better with them as I go. As I get a bit more familiar with them maybe I can do a step by for you. First I have to make sure I know where, when, and how to use them before I can help any of you.

     There really is not much more to be done. Hopefully I can have some finished shots for you later this week, time permitting. I need to finish fleshing out the gems, some of the cloth, and the rest of the weapons. That should pretty much be it. 

     This next one is a new project. I bought this right after these models came out but I have not had the time to start on it. The other night I was looking for something to throw paint at with my airbrush so I figured I would use it to base coat this model.

     This is a simple spray on of VGC Heavy Purple followed by a wash of black, then purple inks to give it some tone. I also did a quick dry brush of the purple so I could see some detail but in the end most of that will be covered with other work. Other than the purple the tabard and arm sash got a coat of VGC Heavy Green and the cloth on the hands, back of the thighs and parts of the arms got a coat of VGC Heavy Grey.

     So far I am fairly happy with the "Heavy" line of Vallejo paints. I guess it is Vallejo's answer to GW's Foundation line. I does not cover as heavy as the foundation paints but for most part it performs just as well. At least for my purposes it does.
