Im starting an emperors children army with the new basic paint scheme( pink and black). I want to know how to paint vehicles like my defiler, dreadnought and rhinos.
Thanks to whoever replies.
hey there, just wondering how you paint up your pink colour, as on vehicles with the large areas if your pink is a bit off then it looks a bit odd.
i use warlock purple through pink to white, and i'd definately recommend the same. it gives a bright colour but as it shades to white rather than pink it looks a bit more cooler IMHO
with regards to a scheme it's pretty much up to what that of your men is, but if you go for a majority of black using the pink to block in small areas and use a deep brass to boltgun metal shade on any trims than you should be on your way.
depends on your ideas but i tend to minimise any gold on my figures, and use it sparingly around the weapon bases and on other prminent areas.
well whatever you think let us know once you have some piccies! good luck
I painted up a couple for fun a few weeks ago... I liked the tentacle pink inked with maroon on the shoulder pads and leg armor only, every thing else black. Then of course detail the guns and rivets with bolt gun metal. I let the mini pretty much black even his trim.
I also tried a scheme kind like a harlequin... separate the model into quarters and paint opposites, kind like knights tunic even.

P. . .p. . .pi. . .pin. . .pink! Argh!
Anyway, you'll probably need to start with a black undercoat, then build up from a dark purple colour to pink on any areas you deem fit. Then repaint all the black bits necessary, and if you want give the black a dark grey highlight.
Whats wrong with pink?Anyway, now for the Vehicles first paint some parts pink, not the whole vehicle, then the parts that have pink fade away with dray brush and then again re-painted with few desert coulor to show some "heavy duty" on the vehicle.
MEAT IS MURDER
For Rhinos, I sprayed mine black. Then went with a high quality white onto the recessed armor parts at the front and rear sides. Once you have the white down and dried, cover it (carefull not to get it onto the black) with a medium color of pink paint. Then, ink it with magenta ink into the corners. Then go through with a lighter color of pink and lightly drybrush the center of the recessed panel. Afterwards, touch up the black if any ink spilled onto it, then paint the rest of your vehicle normally (I drybrush all my corners with a dark gray and my weapons and exhaust stacks with boltgun grey or metallic gray).
Jack of all trades, master of none.
The coolest Emperor's children army I've seen was painted in bronzed flesh and black instead of pink. Looks much better than the official scheme. Yes, I saw it in white dwarf.

I always saw emperors children as having a lich purple and gold color scheme. My army happens to be an ecc for the imperium. i have my own cm and everything. the pics for the ec were good but u should try using purple for that light\dark color. gold stands out really well to.
