As my Shadow Spectres are finished now and just need to be photographed for the blog, I thought the release of all the new Dark Eldar models would be a great occasion to add something new to my Dark Eldar collection. I managed to resist the urge to go out and buy some of the new stuff, as I still have a couple of unbuilt Dark Eldar models waiting to be painted.
So I decided to build a Venom to transport the squad of Incubi I painted earlier this year instead. As you can see I chose the trophy rack balustrade for the Venom to compliment the look of the Incubi models. I also built an Incubi gunner from Kabalite Warrior parts and a spare Incubi head. The trophy rack on the back of the gunner comes from the Wyches sprue. I feel that the three trophy racks give the Venom a really cool silhouette that looks very distinct from my first Venom. What do you think?

Sorry that you don't like it. I'm gonna build the next Venom with the open canopy bit!
I DO like it – your work is fabulous. I’m saying I’m not a fan of the opaque canopies. Just a judge’s opinion.

It's going to look really nice. Except, it looks like you might be planning to paint over the canopy and cockpit like you did the first model? If so, that'll be too bad, it ruins the miniature. Aircraft modelers spend almost as much time working on the cockpit as they do the fuselage – sometimes more. It adds that extra detail that you care.
