So in between a lot of prep work on the Night Lords I have been putting time into a personal project which has recently been the Yncarne. Even if I never end up building the wraithblade army that I have running around my head (I cannot ever bring myself to bring ranged D weaponry even with a -1), I am just extremely glad to have had this model as a painting project. I am very thankful my lovely girlfriend bought me the box set!
I wanted to go for something much darker than the official scheme and make this look like a god of the dead that the Eldar will both follow and fear as the story indicates. I feel the official scheme makes the Yncarne seem to definitely friendly to my mind. And as my skills are just better suited to dark (scruffy) painting, that is the way I went...
There is so much I need to do to this model still!! There are a couple of small bits to add to the swirl that are currently awaiting primer, there are bits of glue that need painting over and just so much that needs blending together better. I don't think it is going to win any awards, but I am pretty happy with how close I have come to my original vision. I would say around 65% towards what I wanted, but with such a complicated model I am very VERY happy with that thus far.
Thoughts on a postcard :)
