Hello dear reader!
It's time to start a new army, again and this time I've decided on Chaos Daemons for 40K.
First models bought are a box of Bloodletters and now I'm brainstorming colour schemes.
1: The classic red as per the box cover - Maybe a bit boring/seen before but it works...
2: White, somewhat like the albino Bloodthirster on the FW website - Might make them dissapear against the gaming board, since I have a snow world table...
3: The classic red but with white legs - Possibly the hardest one to make look good. I picture them as emerging/materializing from the ground but I'm unsure if it will work out in model form...
Any ideas? (new approach, asking for c/c even before painting has started...)
Currently painting the Waaagh! of Warboss Borboss - Goff and Evil Sunz warband
I did some bloodletters once in flesh tones, with black legs and blood effects on their hands and weapons. They turned out rather nice, except that I don't think any of the photos were in focus.
The fade on the legs is pretty easy to do, so if that's the idea that you're in love with, I say go for it.
If only i had a camera to show you my Bloodletters! they are Chosen w/ great weapons for my Fluff army.
They are enchanted blue, then ice blue then white highlights to make a swirl effect. its to represent them shifting with the winds of change!, i do all my fur the same way and its phenomenal, especially for snow worlds! its very thickly painted on codex grey(like no black in the recesses), then just put some white on your brush and wipe most of it off but not like drybrushing, kinda want it to be a little wet still, then just paint as if wet drybrushing(?) and build up layers until its the desired tone of white....the grey in the recesses looks much better than black!
I think the flesh tones sound good. You could do them like an albino look, I think it would be more interesting. You could then have the faces becoming red. Darken them to black and then the teeth, eyes will stand out very well. I remember seeing some demon things in Devil may cry 3 that looked that way and I've thought about adding some Bloodletters to my own Worldeaters painted that way. These things below are what I mean.
