It's not hard to know why. GW probably sees big returns whenever a new edition comes out. Top that off with an impressive new starter kit (like Dark Vengeance). GOLD!
I bet the new starter kit is going to blow our socks off, and quite frankly, I am really glad its going to have orks in it. I've always wanted to paint up an ork army...maybe this new kit might start one for me.
I have decided that this summer will be devoted to completing a new 40k army. I know, I know. 7th edition is probably not going to be as popular as GW expects and there will probably be loads of folks fleeing the scene. Say what you want about their poor game-design, GW can make some kick-ass models, most of the time. That new IG truck is a hideous thing though, don't know what they were thinking there.
The new army will be the Dark Eldar, so while its in progress, I am not accepting commissions. Not that I had many flowing in anyway.
There have been a lot of attempts in the past to do white Dark Eldar. I've been playing around with it. I think the key is to not actually use white, but colors close to white. Here is what I am working on now.
I think it might be better to do whole squads as tests, rather than single test minis. That way, you're already looking for shortcuts that will make army painting easier. I'm not too sure I like the result. I think it needs more variation and some other colors. I may go with greens or reds, or even yellows. Just not sure yet. Thoughts?
