Wow, looks great, dude. Very nice scribbly. I'm looking for a red scheme for my Daemonkin. Would you be willing to share your red recipe?

Nice clean paint job going on here, loving it so far. The red is very nice indeed, and the colours/tones go together so well.

Thank you very much for all your comments! :woot:

 

@ Flint: Thank you very much for your kind words - but I'm grateful for your work as I think about going for the gloss / metallic look myself - but not with the WBs... When I do, I know where to turn for inspiration and guidance! ;)

 

@ Augustus & Eberious: You know me, I like to keep it simple. For those guys I use exclusively Army Painter paints. The base coat is the lovely Chaotic Red and then I do a 50:50 Chaotic Red / Dragon Red with final highlight Dragon Red. Shading is Agrax. Can't say I'm totally happy with those paints though... It takes a lot of time to reach the desired effect. An alternative would be to use Khorne red for the darker tone and Mephiston Red for the lighter but it sort of comes out a bit brighter than I wished for... 

 

Anyways, I'll stick to Army Painter for this project and see where it gets me! :D

Oh man, don't get me started on AP paints. I exclusively use their Matt Black when painting black. Such a wonderful flow, thickness, and just the right opacity.

The bases really make your colour scheme stand out! thumbsup.gif

I thought they were. Their stuff is awesome smile.png I need to get an order in for some "Az-Tech" bases...

Dragon Forge is best base maker. So much so that he's snowed under by orders and you can safely expect a minimum of two months before getting your bases. laugh.png

 

Lovely Word Bearers!

Stay turned from the lion, Cap'n.

I have not turned away from the Lion, not a single bit. I just need to break the dark green once in a while... :P

So here's my next batch:

I also tried to use the decals to use then for writing on the armour. Here's some pics although I'll need to improve on them substantially:

Chaplain Captain Semper, you might try some Wazdakka Red instead of the Mephiston Red to brighten it up slightly. I tried that on my Techmarine and found it was a better match. Kind of hard to explain but being a layer paint it looks better than a base for highlighting.

 

I found the whole Khorne Red  with Wazdakka Red vs Mephiston Red with Evil Sunz Scarlett to be a bit confusing before I tried them both out.

I hear you... I struggled a bit to work out the kind of red I was looking for. I think I want to keep the reds really dark - as opposed to, say, a Techmarine where some brightness is welcome. 

 

But I will give it a go on some test mini anyway, see what comes of it! :)

I'd love to have remained a loyal customer as well, but their bases don't fit with the Sarissa Precision movement trays I want to use with my models since there's often something going beyond the rim of the Ancient Ruins bases... that and buying a lot of 25 mm bases right before GW's change to 32 mm threw a wrench in my enthusiasm.
