Kabal of the Slit Throat

NEWER MODELS. These look great and are painted really well, but I can't help but wonder how they would look with the newer models

More Kabalites

Painted some NEW MODELS. Feedback appreciated. Also today is almost too overcast, the pictures were taken outside but are still too dim. I've made lightboxes before, maybe that's the next step.

Dim photos aside they look good. Good color choices and depth. But yes, better lit photos would make them look all the better.

It's probably the lighting, but does this squad's armor match that deep green-blue of the first models you posted? I hope so, because that was nice work--it was like one of those custom car paint jobs where the color looks like it's several inches deep beneath the clearcoat.

Thanks everyone! It is the same colors as the first set of models. Does anyone know of any like stop-in DIY type photo shops where you can use their rig to take pictures? Had studios like that in school for photographing prints and paintings but I'm not sure if they exist in the RL

That lightbox looks nice and simple! I will try it. Now i just need some task lights, I'm sick of waiting for appropriate weather/time of day

I grabbed a couple cheap scoop lamps from home depot and threw 100 watt incandescents in them.

Set your camera's color balance to tungsten and you'll be good.

It's been an embarrassingly long time since I've bothered photographing my progress (such as it is) but summer break from grad school has me trying to make up for lost time. Still too lazy to make a light box, but the wife has a new phone that also happens to take better pictures than my camera.

Looks great. I like the pale color on the lizard guy really popping out.

I like them. I dig the color scheme.

I wonder if you may be washing them with too dark a color, or too heavily? It's totally subjective, though. And I get that Dark Eldar should be dark and not flashy. I bring it up because I purposely douse my renegade IG in Agrax Earthshade to make them look apocalyptically grimy and dingy, but in these guys, you might be losing some of the pop of that neat shade of blue armor, and the gold weapons.

Awesome grim-ness. The deep subtle green on the armor works really well.

(As others have said it's really dark--sadly we play on dimly-lit tables so even 'dark' models sometimes cheat and are only gray.)

A bright base scheme might also help the models stand out--the naga-eseque guys are much easier to make out than the footsoldiers.
