WIP Prince of Pain/Duke Sliscus

I picked up a bunch of bits and pieces of dzer0 (link over in the linkafication section), which included the two Female Slaves Dark Eldar/Elf models, and the Dark Elf Hero character model Lokhir Fellheart. Which got me thinking, what better way to show a dashing Pirate Prince than by using Lokhir and a slave girl? (DISCLAIMER: Not trying to offend anyone here, as the more astute amongst you may have guessed, my Dark Eldar kabal is firmly rooted in the "Saturday morning cartoon villain" spectrum of evil, not trying offend anyone.) Anyway, here is how he is looking now. Prince Zhai Mor 'counts as' Duke Sliscus.

The Prince/Duke was primed black, his armor highlighted Goblin Green and Hawk Turquoise, his helmet is pure Skull White,his cloak was first painted with Scab Red, then Mechrite Red, then a heavy drybrush of Blood Red, followed by a slightly lighter drybrush of Warlock Purple. The inside of his scale cloak is Tallarn Flesh, then Skull White, then Tallarn Flesh again with a light wash of Leviathan Purple and a heavier wash of Ogryn Flesh. Swords are basic Chainmail, with Turquoise Blue and Skull white for the poisoned edges.
His lady friend (yes, the way she is placed is completely intentional) was primed yellow, her skin is Tallarn Flesh followed by a store brand acrylic paint "Buttermilk", her hair is Iyanden Darksun, then a drybrush of Sunburst Yellow, her make up is Blood Red, her chains are Chainmail, her clothes are Snakebite Leather highlighted with more Darksun.

Work to Do:
Base him(them?): My main issue here is to whether wait for more resin bases to arrive, or base him myself. The models take up most of the base, so what would be seen wouldn't matter that much, but I still want it to look good.

Highlights and touch ups: The Prince/Duke needs his blades highlighted, and I think I can do a better job on his eyes and cloak. The girl needs here eyes done, as well as overall facial highlighting.

Oh, and I'm working on a way to make a WYSISYG Shadowfield, so stick around if you are interested.
