For a friend's present, I'm painting him a khorne juggernaut with a custom base. It's dry, cracked ground, and i want to add some lava running underneath to give the whole model a more powerful feel. any helpful tips?
Depending how hot you want the lava to be (the darker the cooler)...
I do an undercoat of red gore, then start dabbing/drybrushing Blood red, blood red mixed with orange, orange, orange mixxed with yellow, yellow, yellow mixxed with white, then white, brush some watereffects (or gloss varnish, if you're feeling frugal and/or don't want to wait 8 hours for the thin coat to dry), with water effects, you can stir it around while its drying (carefully, or you'll get bubbles, but bubbles can be cool in lava) to give it a texture. Then lightly drybrush some black over the raised areas to look like its chunks of cooled magma.
Yeah, it takes a while and alot of different colored paints, but it looks good in the end. When I get home from work, I'll take a couple pictures of some examples.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
