Today, I'm showing you the Lelith Hesperax model that I painted up a couple weeks ago. I had been wanting to give a new Dark Eldar model a paintjob. I knew from the moment of release this wouldn't be an army that I wanted to paint an entire force of. When one of my friends decided to start the Dark Eldar, I picked up this model and put some paint to it as a gift. I'll probably do a couple more characters for him, as it was a definite change of style needed than anything I had ever painted previously. This model is tiny when you start painting it. And line highlighting neatly is very difficult for me. I feel it looks a little better in real life and am still bothered with photographing minis. It is a very hard thing to do well.
I was also enticed by a painting competition that was going to be held over at Spiky Bits. So, I ordered the model and put a couple hours of time into it, then more time photographing. Finally, I was pretty happy with it and sent it in to the competition. As you can see in this link apparently my entry was lost. This is pretty upsetting as I feel I had a chance to finish in the top three. I couldn't have won the thing, but it would have been nice to get some votes. Either way, I now need to send this off to my friend so this chick can kick some faces in on the tabletop.
There are some more pics below. Check them out and see what you think. I do wish they were part of the competition I entered, but whatever.
