I am hoping to start an Eldar army soon and I want them to have the same color scheme as the Iyaden Craftworld. Their main color is yellow accented with blue helmets and shoulder pads. My question is what is the besr way to paint yellow and should I use a whit undercoat or a black undercoat?
Any helpful hintw would be wonderful!
Well, it depends on you desired end-look. If you want to go for really bright, use a white undercoat. If you prefer more muted tones, go for a grey or black undercoat. Especially on black, it's best to start with a brown/ochre base coat and build up to yellow as yellow is notoriously transparent and needs quite a few coats to cover evenly.
Use a white undercoat and save yourself 200 hours work. Make sure the undercoat is good and solid using a brush and skull white to touch up any gaps. Then apply golden yellow in 2 thin coats to get decent couverage. Apply a thin wash of sepia or possibly 2 to get a smooth appearance then touch up the raised areas with golden yellow again.
