Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have a small force of Emperor's Children and I was wondering.
How do I paint pink so it wont be so weak?
I use GW's Tentacle Pink and if I paint it on black its too faint, if I paint it on white its too faint, if I paint a mix of pink and white on either black or white its either too faint or too white, if I paint it over red its decent...
Anyone got any tips for me because my pink always looks weak and girly (No offense to girls)
So black doesn't work and white doesn't work (actually I think it would turn out nicely over white). Tried painting it over grey?
But I wouldn't use tentacle pink. I've never liked it. I much prefer to mix my own pink from Warlock Purple.
Oh yeah, I made a good pink mix from liche purple but it came out inconsistent.
How do you make the mix look the same all over the mini? Several coats?
What you might want to do is paint a layer of red, purple, or other color that isn't quite so light or dark as white and black and gradually mix in the pink until you get the color you are looking for.
Hmm.. I just started Emperor's Children too.
Well, one answer I guess would be not to use Tentacle Pink at all. I've seen them done in a wide range of pink/purpley colours, and with different variations of the pink and black.
I painted the pink bits scab red on mine, then used successive layers to tentacle pink and then tentacle pink mixed with white.
The results are in the gallery. They aren't excellent, and the camera doesn't show the colours too well.
Do you need to worry about the colours not being consistent? Slaaneshi dudes are chaos worshippers after all, and they probably all have individual variations in their armour colours.
That's what I do with my Orks, their clan colour is orange and I try to mix it as close as I can to the other guys each time but it always comes out subtly different. They look individual but still unified I think.
Maybe it would help to get a pink from a different line of paints, such as Vallejo. Maybe those are different and will be better.
Also, pink is girly. :lol:
