Here we go. Test run for painting the Spectral Sicarii tonight.

 

Rows of paints are groups for what I'll be painting. Armor, shoulder pads, soft armor, and eyes (i'm thinking of just washing over the gray and hoping that will give a nice glow on it's own).

 

I still have to figure out details like holsters and pouches but those are secondary to the overall scheme.

Finally got around to finishing up the basics for my test model. I watched the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer and got super excited and started playing Borderlands 2 again. FPS and RPG combo? That's my jam on PC!

 

Anyways, back to 40k. Super stoked with how it looks. It's a bit tedious to paint, especially because I'm glazing in the armor lines and that is a painstakingly slow process. But I do like the look. I'm leaning towards painting the pouches/holsters the same gray that I used on the chest emblem however I'm open to suggestions for them.

That looks really great!
I've always been a fan of basic brown for pouches and holsters. It'd add another color to the process, but I think the additional color would help with overall composition.

Looks really good!

What about the same colour as the joints the armour? Or maybe a grey inbetween the armour and emblem?

Thanks guys! I know a guy in a FB group who's a commission painter by trade. He's helped me with some information into this scheme. He suggested I paint them black with a dark edge highlight because "you don't want them to take up visual space".

I was waffling between gray or my standard brown leather recipe. I've got my black recipe from my RG armor that I can use. I'll think on it for a day or two.

Black was another thought although maybe too strong of a contrast? Which is why my initial thought was a darkish grey

That was my thought as well. The model has a holster on one side and two pouches on the other. I'll probably paint one black and the other side the grey I was thinking to see what they look like. I'll be able to look from the side so I won't have to see both colors on the model at the same time.

Tried a dark grey and black, black was the winner. Body is done!

It looks really simple, but the more you look at it the more you spot the little things that have gone into it. Definitely worth the effort.

Your Primaris model looks promising, but is he supposed to bear the pre-Heresy World Eaters colors?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Ha, it would be Repulsors then. IF I ever make this a 40k army it'll be Primaris only. I'm saving up for a compressor right now. I won't try this scheme on flat armor without one.

No, this is a color scheme my wife helped me come up with. And... DO YOU NOT SEE THE SEAL OF PURITY ON HIS BELT!!!! Lol

I've had several comments about that. At this point in the hobby I don't think there's any way to do a truly 'original' scheme because somewhere something close to what you've thought up had already been done.

I had to look up the World Eater scheme because I had no idea what it looked like.

And we're done! Hoping to get the base done soon, I was sick the last couple of days so work is going to need catching up before I can justify hobby time...

How'd you do it?

Stupidly easy. I washed right over the base coat. Seriously, that's it.

 

I left the base coat on the eyes and added white to the lens on the rifle scope when I was highlighting. Lens and eyes got two coats of Secret Weapon Miniatures Amethyst wash. Then I used Secret Weapon Miniatures Purple wash as an edge highlight around the eyes to give a subtle OSL effect (no purple on the scope). I'm not sure if I want it brighter or not. I might try to start with the purple on my next model to brighten it up.The model is already pretty bright though so keeping it muted might be the better choice...

Great colour scheme on the test model.

The black pouches suit your scheme better than brown.
