I haven't done one of these notebook posts in awhile and I wanted to remember how I painted this little guy.
He's my Genestealer Cult Kill Team Leader for Shadow War : Armageddon. The leader can have a power pick or power maul, so there you have it. I still need to paint the eyes, but he'smore or less done.
My sci-fi ash waste color combo, I think. Actually the mid color is probably darker and the mid I used here may be the lightest instead of the drizzle. That's the problem with not writing things down.
Metallics. As usual probably way too many for one model, but why use one when you can use seven? I forgot to include the Walnut Brown for his gun stock. I may also add a highlight to it.
Clothing. The color scheme is supposed to conjure up the fiery comet of salvation streaking across the sky. So Yellow, Orange and Red but muted ones.
Lastly we have flesh and chitin. I sort of followed GW's video tutorial here in that I put a purple ink wash over the shadow tone of the skin triad and then tried to layer on the highlights. Still a little rough in my layering. Nothing painting a few hundred more models won't fix. I'm not sure that the Reaper Blue Triad I picked really matches the genestealer blue recipe from GW. I might try mixing a little whit into the Ashen Blue to lighten it up. The Sky Blue was a spot color on the wires of the Power Pick. Perhaps last time I painted wires I used Sapphire Blue.
I'm also thinking about ordering some game tokens from Litko. Need to do it soon. I also need to check to see if I have all the templates and dice I need. I suspect I do.
Thanks for looking.
