I have been saving for a while, and am planning to purchase an Emperor's Children army...does anyone have any pointers for painting noise marines or Slaanesh colours?

What colours are you going to paint them?
The black and pink scheme? Purple and pink? Purple and bone?
Theres a few different ways people like to paint their emperors children,some dont like pink so they choose purple instead.
But generally they arent that hard to paint.Fairly easy and simple.
Well, no matter what color scheme you decide to use for your EC, I'd suggest using bright colors and keeping your black to a minimum. The GW scheme has nice contrast with the black & pink, but there's just far too much black on them to really "pop" IMO. I suggest purple, pink, blue, and green, but really - go with whatever colors you want. Its your army!
If you're looking for tips on HOW to paint - well, there's plenty of articles and tutorials for fledgling brushthralls on this site and all over the net to help you get started.
I'm currently building an EC army as well, so feel free to PM me if you need more specific advice!
if you are going to paint bright colors, then stay away from black under coat. This is what I think any way. If you want dark purple then you can use black, but not for pink and bright blue.
The bright colors lose its luster when they are painted on black.
(but maybe you already know this...)
Well this is the only thing that comes to my mind at the moment.
i painted my one off EC lordess on a black base coat. i totally understand that you cannot get the pure shock of it. but, if you miss a little bit of the model it will not be seen while it will look bad if he/.she has a white arm pit.
i painted pink and black on mine, painted tenticle pink then pink ink (for got the name) and then a lighter coat of tenticle pink. it looks nice.
Thats way you use washOriginally Posted by danjones87
I think that dark blue works better then black, I say pink + dark blue.
My scheme is pink armor and gold trim, it looks birght, gaudy, and like an acid trip, it looks like EC
