Where it all began

This was the first of the jetbikes to be converted for the Dark Eldar army.

Here's a peek at the initial conversion:

This one was the most complex of all the conversions, so it's the only one that had sculpted wings, etc.

This did make it an excellent stand out leader for the squad, however!

I had to make sure there was enough of the sculpey pieces on the base to act as a counterweight.  This worked perfectly once I located the center of gravity on the jetbike.

The main reason I did the extended blade vanes was to provide a nice canvas for freehand and the blood streak effects.  It certainly worked out that way!

Doubling up the hull sections also meant that I could do some nice inner glow effects.  It took some doing to get the brush into some places, but well worth it in the end.
