Well I've finished my comissions for the time being, now for some "me" time. I'm going to finally get around to painting my daemon army that has been glaring me in the face for some time. I'm painting this army as my personal army so I'm going to take my time in doing so. I want them to look nice and be a pleasure to look at as well as play with!
First up, I wanted to try painting something I've never painted before: a Tzeentch character. I started the painting journey with a Tzeentch Flamer. It's just getting the main colors of it together at the moment, but I think it's turning out well.

Shoot! My browser messed up a little, haha. Could a MOD please move this to the WIP's? I'm going to take a while on this one! Thanks!
I think the colours are good for a flamer. However I think That you need to try to make some kind of distinction between the flames and the thing itself. You should also look at those tentacles on it's trunk. They are the same colour as the trunk and as such it can be clearly seen how you have created the colour change/graduation over the surface of the model. It is obvious that they were painted at the same time. I think you should try to paint those tentacles a different colour from the trunk to make it more life-like.
Thanks , I'll consider it. For the flames I'm thinking about making them a bright green. While many people think of fire and flames as orange and red, I want DEMONIC fire, so I think Green.
As for the tentacles and bits around the mini, appendages if you will, I'm making those yellow as well. I had to stop painting for a bit due to some phone calls. Thanks for the comments though
I like it.
But one flamer does not a host make.
I love the style of this, with the random colors and stuff. I mean, Tzeentch IS the lord of change, why would his daemons only be blue pink and purple?
If I may ask, what were the colors you used in this? I imagine some of the new washes but it looks like there might be others in thier too, I could be wrong though. Great work though, eager to see the rest.
What does Slaanesh use to fish?
Haha, wow thats khorney
I've decided to go a bright green for the flames. I didn't want just normal fire, after all this is Tzeentch, I wanted Demonic Fire!
Also, this image is the first one I've taken using the manual setting on my camera. While it doesn't sound like a big deal I'm looking to improve my photo taking abilities. Any feedback would be great on it. I'm also keeping the images to 75 DPI due to constraints on websites.
Any comments on the painting or the photography is always appreciated! I'm always looking to improve
that flmaer is really impressive. kudos. what colour schemes are you going for the other daemons. itd be strange to see a bloodcrusher in a similar scheme to that, id still like to see it
Thanks for the comments I'm having a ton of fun blending different colors together like this to really emphasize the spontaneous nature that is associated with Tzeentch!
For the rest of the army units, the Khorne ones will be red and black, but I may go with a darker tone to them, not quite sure yet. The nurgle units will be a very nice mix of greens and browns to give them that rotting organic look with some yellows here and there. I'm pretty much flying by the seat of my pants on this! Normally I'd shy away from it, but I actually like it a lot this time around.
Anyways, I made some progress on the Flamers today. I got around to nearly finishing the unit and the unit champion, but I can finish them up tomorrow.
I'm having a good time taking photos of these as well. I'm really getting the hang of the manual functions on my camera. If you have any comments on the photography or the painting, feel free to post! I appreaciate C&C and will return the favor anytime
