Ok, I haven't posted any new images of models since 2019. Since then I have acquired a new fancy air brush - the Iwata Revolution. I have also decided to strip my 6000 points of models to paint them in a colour I have wanted but didn't know how to make it until Turbo Dork released it. I have ordered Vallejo Black Gloss to under coat my models and will be using the Blue Raspberry as the base colour. I will be ret-conning my existing chapter to be blood angels successors. What is everyones' thoughts, should I keep the Sanguinary Guard and Death company in their original colours but slight variation in colour? Anyways, it's about to be a new year and i guess it's time for a new look for my army. Any recommendations on an old gold paint or should I use silver as my secondary colour? Anyways here's a blog to keep a track of my progress.

A colour shift chapter could be pretty cool. For the gold, I'd recommend trying out the Vallejo liquid metal range. I've recently started using it for the trim on my Legio Astorum and it's much shinier than GW paint. It's like painting actual gold on. You need to use pure alcohol to dilute it though - never water - and that's a bit of a hassle.

I was thinking of using leadbelcher and then black templar on top as a secondary colour instead of gold, thoughts?

Not sure. I think that could look a bit dull next to the hyper-colourful armour plates. I'd have to see what that looked like I think, but my initial reaction is that gold would be better.

I think if you go with the silver you'd be straying very closely into Alpha Legion territory :)

Hmm I was the same with Gold that it might be a better choice. Would metallic on metallic be too much or should I try a NMM Gold?

This after a couple of hours of scrubbing cleaning after a few days in simple green, it's amazing how much of it has gone down to its bare plastic form. It probably be a few weeks before I get the rest done. I'm also ordering a air hose soon to go with my airbrush.
