Hey there, today I present you the painted Razorwing of my Dark Eldar force. I was keen on finishing this model before the end of the year, so I took good advantage of the holidays and painted like I was on combat drugs. Enjoy more angles of the model after the jump.
The Razorwing is actually the first flyer I painted. I enjoyed working on the model because it was easy to assemble and, in comparison to my Ravager, it was far quicker to paint because of its simplicity. I like the design, but I wonder if it would have looked better with a shorter nose, more similar to the Venom. In terms of money it’s also decently priced, almost cheap in comparison to the recently released flyer kits.
The Razorwing is armed with dark lances for dogfights and two monoscythe and two shatterfield missiles. I always have a hard time remembering which missile is supposed to represent what… surely I can’t be the only one?
How do you like the model? Does it make a worthy closure of my efforts for our Tale of Mega Painters project?

Great model, it looks very menacing in its colour scheme, dark purple was a good choice.
On a different note how do you get those really neat, crisp highlights? Whenever I do it they always appear messy and uneven.
There is no secret really, just a steady hand, patience and the will to go back and paint over messy or uneven highlights until it's right. For larger models it helps me to break them down into several smaller subassemblies which can be held more easily in your hands.
Seconded. Your edge highlingting ability is second to none. I'm also curious how your lines are so crisp!

It's definitely a worthy model to end the project on. Not quite closure yet though. We need a group shot of the hole army! I need to do the same.
