Here are my finished Dark Eldar Reavers. I really like how bloodofkittens painted the face helmets on his trueborn. I kinda tried a variation on what he was doing, and added a stripe to distinguish this guy as the arena champion with heat lance (magnetized) and possibly power weapon or agonizer.
I must have painted the dark eldar graffiti on the front cowlings about 5 times. In yellow, turquoise, white and yellow again. It never seemed to fit. I went with the streak pattern I put on my venom from awhile back. I also really didn't like the yellow I airbrushed onto these guys a few months ago, and painted over that too. The cowl on a few of them look rough. That was the graffiti getting painted over. I also need to work on my lighting. Some came out great, others got a little washed out once I did the photoshop lightening on them.
I got the shiny effect on the helmets by finishing the painting, sealing them with a matte varnish, and then painting on a gloss varnish. It works well to have the model matte, and then only have parts of the model gloss. It really makes the glossy part stand out.
