I Primed (black) my new Deceiver model this morning and very much want to paint it when i return from work (im there now).
Ideally i wanna have a classic gold Deceiver but im not sure i can pull it off since this is unfimliar terrirtory for me (haven't done an all gold model)
I need a good gold color skin, and this is what i need help with. I wouldn't mind a darker or more realistic skin tone
I was thinking
1)Bolt gun metal base coat,
2)Mitheral silver highlight
3)Bronzed gold coat
4)Baal red ink wash (maybe delvan mud???)
5)Shinning gold highlight
Is this too much paint, or too much trouble???
Maybe cut out the boltgun and mitheril and just go
1) Bronzed gold Base Coat
2) Shinning gold base/ Highlight
3) Baal Red ink wash
4) Light Gold (forgot name)
IDK, please help, if have Experince with this i'd love to hear about it!
I got the other eyes figured out (bright green) but im lost on the Ribbon Maybe Green, or Purple....thats not a big deal.
I think that I would go with the first, it certainly will be well worth the effort. A well painted Deceiver could be an awesome centrepiece for your army.
I am not sure about the wash, Devlan Mud is more traditional but you could go with a green wash (to bring out the eyes a bit). If you want to test it paint a scarab or something in the same scheme with the red, brown and green just to see which gives the right affect.
The sash purple would look cool, whatever you go with make sure that you thin your paints so that when you paint them the coats are even and smooth.
Have a look in my WIP at the dreadnoughts gold see if you like that.
That was base dark flesh (scorched brown is better but i had ran out)
1:1 mithril silver:shining gold
(possibly pure mithril silver i thought it was too much)
Gryphonne sepia (whole model)
Badab black (in the deepest parts)
Or do it the pro way:
50/50 scorched brown & shining gold
Mithril silver (extremes only)
Sepia wash (or Devlan mud)
Purple wash (recesses only)
Retouch of mithril silver
Boom perfect gold recipe
Brokendoll Miniature Painting - (Coming Soon)
Muse2k8's Painting Antics (WIP and Finished Models thread)
THanks for the update, it looks great.
1) Boltgun Metal
2) Mytheril Silver
3) Devlan Mudd Ink Wash
1) Burnished Gold
2) Shining Gold
3) Baal Red Ink Wash
I mad his Eyes and Third Eye mark GLowing Green to keep up with the "Powered By Glowing Green Energy" theme in my army. The only reason i didn't go with the purple Sash, was that a green sash would have kept with army colors.
Glad you like it
