This blog is dedicated to my Dark Elf Warhammer army - The Cult of Khaine.
I have been collecting and painting models for the past couple of years in particular the games workshop warhammer dark elves. These are my favourite minatures out of their range and over the time I have amassed a rather large army. I thought it would be a good idea to blog my development of the army as It evolves to keep a record of my ideas and to showcase the models when I finish them. I will be posting various images, comments and links as I go and would love to hear any comments you have.

Dark Elf Black Guard
Well I have finally finished painting this great conversion for the Golden Demon Comp. It has been great fun converting and painting these models. I would love to hear what you think - any comments would be most welcome.
I think they look pretty good. I love the conversion work, making them out of the various plastic kits was a great plan. Also, I must admit I dislike the heads, I personally would have gone with armoured heads instead.
The painting is also great, a nice dark scheme that suits the Druchii. But again the heads I find a little off putting. The black marks around their eyes I'm not a fan of. But overall, the unit is well painted and would great on the tabletop.
They look superb ! I'm trying not to look into their eyes though, I don't want to me subverted by the god of murder.
This is a good blog you have going here. In fact, while I'm here, I'd like to invite you to join the battle reporter forum. We're always on the look out for keen gamers, painters and bloggers.

Kuffeh - Im working on an all female army at the moment just using the GW plastics. Daemonette heads were unfornately the only choice I could find that seemed to work. I have some more units that I will be posting soon.
Cult of Khaine
Ok thanks Cult of Khaine, we look forward to making your acquaintance.
Keep up all this great modelling and painting work. You should enter our painting comp !
Have a good day,
Taken myself the time to browse through your older posts, and I'm fairly impressed. The Tower is simply awesome, and I think your 5-headed Dragon-Hydra is wonderful: great idea and superb execution!
I also like your newest painted unit, the Black Guards, a nice touch to make them all female, but personally I think they'd look greater without the make-up around the eyes. Only a matter of taste, though. The paint job in itself is really good, and all the details like the small cuts here and there, your choice of skin tone aswell as the fine highlighting on the armour creates a good (in an evil way) atmosphere that I think fit the unit very well!
