Color scheme for my Dark Eldar

I allready settled my mind on this earlier but recently found this nice army painter picture so I think it is worth a post: I will reproduce the Kabal of the Flayed Skull.

You can find my Dark Eldar painting log in german by clicking here.

As you can see in the picture there are the dark red tones I love su much again. the black for the underwear is for realism and contrast and I will surely add some highlights in the means of hair, eye sockets and gems. I think of green mainly. Bases are not decided yet but I might just go for dry, yellowish grass.

Their backgound sounds also okay for me:
The Flayed Skull

The Kabal of the Flayed Skull tattoo stylised bloodstreaks across their faces. Their many aircraft and well-equipped warrior cliques boast so many gore-splattered trophies that the entire Kabal has a reputation for being hi-tech headhunters.
And when I am just at it. Yestereday I wrote about picster and his Blood Angels only to find one of his Dark Eldar jetbikes on Games-Workshop website today. If it is true, that he painted that model in five hours like it is said there, I hate him for his talent.

Five hours? you got to be kidding me- man niveua that is something of a goal.

Like the color scheme too. If I didn't already have angry marines that color then I'd be on board too.

And that bike is ridiculous good. I'm jealous too.

Why not paint all your armies in that color? Can't have enough reds.

Ok, that's a pretty sick color scheme!

Yeah, sick sounds right for Dark Eldar. I just entered a painting contest where I will put this to a test.
