I have recently purchased a C'tan Deceiver and i was wondering if anybody had some pics or paint designs besides whats on the box?
The reason this question has came up is because i use a red plated necron army, with mithril silver on the standard limbs. My Nightbringer is red, black and blend of the two. So really, i was wondering if anybody had thoughts on an "evil" Deceiver paint scheme because the one on the box of it i just refer to as "The Tin Man". "My" colours are red and black, so naturally i was hoping for a scheme related to that, however, my Nightbringer is red and black so at the same time, maybe the Deceiver should be something different?
If anybody has some ideas or pictures they could send to give me some inspiration it would be greatly appreciated.
You could paint him tzeenech like, a swirling multitude of colours, to decieve and confuse the foe..

I very cool "glowing blue would look awesome. It wouldn't match your army but it would be an awesome contrast. Or you could do a lava red where you basecoat him in a brighter orange and go backwards on the highlighting steps. Both of these would look very cool.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
Ok cool, thanks for the ideas guys. I was wondering, since The Deceiver deceives (oh im good arent i, i figured that out all by myself haha), i tend to think of deception as darkness, because, well, you can't see well in the dark without lights so you tend to be deceived. So, maybe i was thinking blacks and greys to represent the night? or as the poster above said to use blues?
If anybody has any other ideas, please feel free to post.
I always loved to think of him as the Harlequin god, though he isn't, a manifestation that drives people insane with his changing and wild figure.
I always like them in consideration to a shell holding massive power,
An undercoat of Milky white with a stark contrast on the top that would give the impression of an encased power that has no business having form.
I'm planning to paint one of my own right now. I do go for the "tin man" look, as I think in painting mine I'll make it look more my own, but I can see why you'd want to think outside the box.
That said, I'd avoid black and grey, because that seems more fitting to the Nightbringer than the Deceiver. I'd also avoid "neon" colors, because I think that's too Tzeentch-y or Chaos Daemons. EDIT: What I mean is, this guy's not a demon, and while he's a god, on the battlefield he's not technically a god. He's a god that has animated a piece of "living metal" and shaped it into a humanoid-esque shape, a la the T-1000. I think that's why metal has to fit in somehow.
How good are your painting skills? If you can wet-blend (I can't. Working on it, though), maybe try doing him in non-metallic metal? That would be a neat change. How about glazes? You could paint him one color but with a brighter color strategically placed throughout the model with the right glazing, you could make him "glow," as another poster suggested. Might be cool. Man, now you got me re-thinking my scheme!
Yeah, my painting skills are rather good id say haha. I might try some wet blends and glazes on some of my fabled "Test Guys" which were just old models i dont need till i get the colour i want. Thanks for your ideas though. I will try them out.
Marble would look cool. On the GW site there is a tutorial on how to paint Chatex in Lizardmen. His axe is marble. Gold would stand out nicely
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
