A few weeks ago I picked up a Razorwing on one of the Facebook trading sites. It was already base coated and the canopy painted over, so this was really going to be place to test a scheme for my fledgling Dark Eldar force. With lots of talk about Warhammer 40k aces and flying machines, it seemed like a good chance to give it a go.
The model was already basecoated black so it already matched the rather unoriginal scheme I've been doing, but needed the trademark purple markings already on my Raider.
Amazingly it worked much better than I thought...
The purple kraken pattern was shaded and highlighted, but the black is kept as matte as possible.
Where the vehicles in the force have echoes of a kraken pattern, the fighter ace has the whole image to show his/ her importance. Any other Razorwings will probably be much less ornate and look more like the prow of the Raider pictured.
