Here's a spotlight on one of the most popular Dark Elves heroines: Zailith. In this post you will find her background and story as well as 6 different paintjobs we've seen around. We hope it will inspire you to get more work done on your Dark Elves!

The Blood Vestals are a wild cruel bunch. Fighting like a pack of furious cats, they are always ready to turn on each other... Worshipped and adored by a large part of the Dark Elves society, covered in lavish gifts that are supposed to bring good fortune to the givers, representing the ultimate fantasy of most male and many female Elves, they live flamboyant lives that are usually short and brutal.

However, there are those who manage to outlive the pack in an impressive way. Every year, the previous year's greatest Blood Vestal fighter, called the Secultrix, has to fight three challengers to prove that she is still the best, or else, die under the blade of the new Secultrix.

Despite new ferocious and hungry Vestals rising to the challenge every year, many decades have passed and the current Secultrix remains undefeated. Her name is Zailith...

The Art Director's tip on color scheme: if you like it, steal it!

Color scheme is one of the hardest part of painting, and one of the most underrated. So if you find one that you really like, just steal it! Or if you'd prefer, borrow it...But it will save you a lot of time: just take it and apply it to your army.
