Update on my Venom, the vehicle itself is completed! As you notice, just as with my Raider, I kept the Venom bare-bone without any spears or flags sticking out. I feel they distort the silhouette of the model. Speaking of my Raider, I feel that its black and gold sail with the blue rune freehands really stands out. I wanted to pick up this design on the Venom, too, so I painted the canopy black and gold and added the runes there. I really like how it turned out, though now I can’t help to think of some douchebag 90s guy, driving his pimped car with tribal stickers on the back window 😉
Next up is the gunner. This Venom will belong to a small squad of Trueborns (who I haven’t painted yet), so I wanted the gunner to look a bit more noble than my regular Kabalites. I chose a head with a big top-knot and will add more gold to his armour.
What do you think so far?

Looks great, and remember, Dark Eldar ARE the douchebags with the tribal paintjob on their pimped out rides.
I totally agree with limiting the amount of "spiky bits" sticking out to and fro.
The silhouette is really improved without all of the gubbins, not sure about the tribal window though.
I didn't like the blacked out canopy on your previous post but you've turned it around on this one. I really like this unique approach with the tribal pattern. Will you highlight the canopy to represent a gloss or perhaps just use gloss varnish to help represent glass (or crystal or whatever Dark Eldar use)?
