Hah! Finally finished a full squad of Scourges - Skyrim be damned!  These guys took a long time (about a month) - but I've had a lot of distractions between homework, dragon slaying and delving deeper into the madness that is collecting boardgames...  However, they were a ton of fun to put together and paint (as has all of the Dark Eldar stuff I've touched so far.

As I mentioned last time, Scourges are vain and decadent, even by Dark Eldar standards.  So what better why to honor that, than by sacrificing a few of the Emperor's Finest to decorate their bases.  This first one here was made of a leftover biker-marine body with the hands rotated.  And if you're curious he's from the Ultramarines' 2nd Company.  If you're not familiar with GamesWorkshop or 40k, the Ultramarines are pretty much the poster boys of all that is good and holy.

Bonus points if you can guess what I used to pick which feathers to shade blue.

Note the shard round lodged in his sternum.

Squad Leader complete with head and swappable arms.

These guys were all pretty top-heavy, so I glued some fishing weights under the bases to sure them up.

Double special weapons (also swappable).

I've nicknamed this squad "the Crows" which would make this a murder
