The colours show up pretty much spot on in the photos. That's what they look like, what I meant is that my painting doesn't look that neat in real life.
Not sure if that's good or bad?
They're not canary, it's quite a strong deep yellow. Rich and golden, but bright. Well you can see the photos I spose.
Anyway, you requested a tutorial, I will outline my method:
Spray white undercoat (important!)
Paint/spray my thinned peachy mix on*.
Thinned pure skull white highlight - you want milk consistency, and 2 passes with the same white mix give 2 levels of highlight - one narrower line one over the top of a wider highlight. The top highlight is almost completely opaque white.
Yellow ink bath (well, almost, paint it on everywhere). My yellow ink is 50/50 water with a touch of fiery orange, but that was more experiment than anything, not really necessary.
Undiluted brown ink blacklining - thinning this makes it suck really bad. Undiluted is important.
Black ink over chainmail bits - with chainmail drybrush to rescue where black ink goes on too strong.
Black bolter nd shoulderpad trim.
Adeptus battlegrey highlight on black.
Knarloc green details (eyes, wreaths). Green ink over this (not on eyes yet, too scared. Might get around to it).
Mechrite red on any wingy-looking bits and chest eagles, assorted lenses, purity seals. Thinned mechrite red hardly even needs a highlight at all.
Khemri brown leather bits and base for paper and bone bits.
Brown ink blacklining on leather and paper, but not on bone.
Bleached bone on bone and paper bits.
Skull white highlight on bone and paper, maybe.
*This was mixed by hand with subsequent batches mixed up by eye - not terribly precise, but something like 4 parts skull white to 1 part fiery orange
Cripes that tutorial looks longer than it feels. Maybe that's why I am so slow
Dunno what I am gonna do for the plasma coil. Anybody got an easy recipe for that?
