There is more that hopefully will be shown soon.

Nice!
Maybe the Painting and Modelling forum would be appropriate.

I no longer play, but those models do look pretty gorgeous - especially the whips on the girls, which look really cool. I'm sure that you will get some interested folk here :)

Welcome to the forum!

You have some really nice models there - do they take you long to sculpt?

Can someone bump this over to P&M?

Thank you all guys, I really appreciate the feedback.

@Cultofkhaine: It depends on the model, usually around 90 hours, up to 160h for the more complex ones. Honestly I don't remember quite well about these specific ones, cause I sculpted them some years back, they are part of a trio that can be used together as a command group.

The technical work is very well done. Proportions are good, details seem pretty crisp.

The dude definitely has a Dragonball Z powerup thing going. Not my aesthetic, but well executed for what it is.

The girl is quite good. Yes, her feminine... attributes... are somewhat exaggerated; that's to be expected if you want to be able to tell from four feet away. The hipshot stance works with the angle she's cracking the whip, it would take more hip than usual to work a whip in that direction. My only real complaint is the angle of her right foot. You've got it turned in, which makes her look pigeon-toed and off-balance. Having her foot turned to that far out instead makes her look much better balanced. Other than that she's good to go.

Hey guys, it's been a while. Just an head up.
The crew is now assembled and ready to set sail next week ;)

I had some problem posting pics right here, so I'll include links. First one is the whole Dark Elves set, second one is a painted one (by me, unfortunately I'm not that good at painting).

Very cool... but is the guy carrying the flag getting the Monica Lewinsky treatment?

Lol nope.
Let's see if the angle in this old wip helps to clarify.

I don't know how much this forum is still alive (I haven't been active anywhere in ages), but just in case it is...

These models are now on kickstarter that ends in three days, so I wanted to bump this thread. I love all the dark elves in there and wish more of them would fit in my army, which unfortunately has a very specific style. (I'm still backing, by the way)

Hey, Rowena, nice to see you back here! :D

D.net is merely the shadow of what it has been, like so many other specialized forums.
Reasons are a combination of:
- the focus generally shifted from all forums to FB or more instantaneous media,
- the community which used to be united around WH is now scattered around die-hard WH, KoW, AoS and T9A, maybe a few other games, and these games either have no specific darker Elven race to discuss about, or they have their own forum where these things can be discussed, or their audience is limited and they do not generate much forum activity.

The reasons why D.net has still something to offer include:
- old timers keep browsing here with nostalgia, and bring in very useful memories of tactics and fluff,
- everyone finds here, and here only, the so cozy Dark Elf atmosphere, including most importantly a taste for similar models,
- here can be discussed all games equally, not necessarily a single one.

There has been an attempt to merge somehow with Ulthuan and Asrai, with the hope to combine activity.
The attempt succeeded technically and the three websites are hosted as a single one.
However, the next envisioned step, to build a single website with three "colors", was not agreed on Ulthuan, so we are left as you see now.

I'm glad D.net is not completely dead. Marchosias and me have moved to T9A, but for some reason I have never felt at home on their website and forum, so I drifted away instead. D.net would be the easiest place for me to return to. (And now I've started to think I want that :) )

I have actually painted some new models even, I just never got around to photographing them. So maybe if I manage to snap some photos... (I'm doing two hydras and a cauldron of blood/whatever it's called now at the moment. Both really weird.)

That is precisely the added value of specialized faction's websites over "catch'em all" websites.
This is the main reason to keep D.net alive, ready for a renewed community of fans to appreciate.

My signature should have a link to my painting blog.
Basically my army (and my boyfriend's, we are a team) is somewhere between dark and high elves - the started as a high elf military colony, but contact was broken over some misunderstandings and some differences in outlook on life and duty and now all the bridges have been burnt. Some of the elves still consider themselves what the high elves should be, while others decided that "if they call us barbarians, let us become barbarians for real, it can be fun" and adopted a largely fatalistic view. (This is mostly to explain almost naked witch elves and you have our deepest gratitude for supplying a half naked male elf)

Are you planning to make more models? What kind? :)

That's a nice army you have, love how it looks together.
Looks like I'm in for another KS, a themed one this time, but can't say what it is :D
