Leading the Dark Elves to war we have this chap, a “Death Dealer”, a medium strength hero.
He is made from a Cold One Rider Champion, sculpted by Aly Morrison. I have stuck him on an Empire horse body with metal Chaos Steed head.
With the same black, red, steel, gold scheme of the Dark Elf Warriors the army is going to look very tight on the table.
I am not using any highlights on the black, rather I am using a gloss acrylic on the black armour bits, a matt varnish on the horse.
The skin and red elements are shaded and highlighted as normal and the steel/gold elements are edge highlighted. The hair is just brightly painted and washed with crimson.
It’s important for this to be a quick effective paint job that I can repeat to get the army done quickly and also look pretty neat on the table.
