Hey guys, For all those players who like pink colour schemes, for Marines (like me) or Tau or basically anything with a large quantity of pink best way I've found of painting them is to use the dreaded white spray, then paint the parts you want to paint with tentacle pink, I use 2 thin coats for even thin application.
Then mix up a 3:1 ratio mix of Magenta Ink to Purple Ink, it should look a similar colour to warlock purple, wash it in, this will give you the shading to help show up the cracks in armour or robes etc.
Do a highlight (slightly thicker than the one you would use for final highlights) in Tentacle pink with a slight dab of bleach bone, then final highlight stage for a 1:1 mix of Tentacle pink and Skull white, this will give a nice final highlight if its thin.
Now only downside the the white spray is that most colours like a nice black undercoat to work with, well if you get a small quantity of Chaos black on a fine brush, water it down to it acts almost like the inks, add it carefully to the cracks etc or other coloured areas, it will settle mostly in the recesses but leave a nice surace that is easily highlighted by a slow fine drybrushing action.
Remember, pink is manly these days
Also, does anyone know a good supplier of spray paints to be used for models preferably in the light "tentacle pink style" Ive a few tanks that are annoying me and I want a nice quick soloution, also does anyone know where to get the polyuthrene in clear so I can add my ink mix to it? is it the same as ronseals quick drying matt clear varnish?
Stop, Drop & Roll.
Do you have any pics of it done?Im intrested because one day i might do an Emperors Children army.And no i dont know where to get all of the stuff you nee,sorry.Pics would be great!
sorry dude, none yet, but they look pretty darn swank, when my Veteran squad is done i'll try to steal a digital camera off someone and put some pics up.
Emperors children would be a very rewarding legion to paint, especially when done well, Ever thought of doing pre herasy colour schemes?
The ones for Worldeaters (blue and white) and the Emperors children (Purple/pink with ornate gold) would deffinatly look lush on the table top.
Stop, Drop & Roll.
Thanks that would be great if you can get some pics up when there done.
No i havent considered doing a pre-heresy army.I thought pre-heresy EC were only purple with ornate gold on certain areas?But naah i like the black and pink.It just looks really striking although they would be hard to paint.Highlighting black is abit of a pain but i can do that but the bit im not confident about yet is the blending that you need to do with the pink and white.Ah well i learn how to do it some day.But Emperors Children wont be done any time soon...
