I have always held the idea that an Iyanden Ghost Army should look like ghosts! (That means no bright blue and yellow) I am just wanting to get a few opinions on how to proceed with painting a few specific items in my army. As of right now I have some guardians painted up
Black undercoat, codex grey basecoat, fortress grey highlight with a little skull white mixed in. Black guns with chainmail drybrushed over it and black and white Iyanden symbols on the helmets.
Wraithguard and Wraithlords, painted very similar to undead skeletons with chestnut ink, desert yellow, bleached bone and skull white with black trim on the weapons and such. Basically the whole army looks like an "Undead" Eldar army.
The first question is whether or not the loincloths on the Wraithguard should be painted black to match the guns and trim ( and highlighted codex grey), or remain a bonish type of color?
Question two is whether my banshees should follow the guardian scheme (being painted similar to undead wraiths) or the more skeleton scheme?
Last question is what to do with my warp spiders? I was originally planning on a light blue/whitish scheme (sort of an ethreal blue) to go with them, would this work with the previously mentioned scheme, or should I stick to my other colors?
I shod go dark blue almost black, or a dark gray/blue (space wolf gray + black or something). If you go bone here as well I think its possible that you get no contrast at al and the model just blend together.Originally Posted by csbassplayerIt is nice if you have the guardians in one scheme and the waritguard/lord in one then banshee in a different and so on. Still its nice if the go together. You can do them dark gray, darker then the guardians with white hair (white + blue wash then some white for highlights). Or go brighter then the wraiths. Maybe make them white with light blue/gray for shades?Originally Posted by csbassplayerYes it will if you have the light blue to almost looks white. Then you can use some gray as well on them, think light gray shod looks good. You can also make some parts of the guns dark blue, plates on the parts on the barrow.Originally Posted by csbassplayer
Hope I gave you some Ideas, I think you have a nice team for your army.
edit: becose of wrong quote
Have you ever read the white dwarf articles about the undead legions? Banshees and
spirit hosts quite amaze me really.
Here's some ideas for you.
You'll need for your color pallat:
Grey (different shades)
Blue (an assortment of blue) (ranging from regal to a ice blue)
Teal / or turquiose
Heres the scoop:
What you want to try to come to is having the blue as the base color. You'll want to
do alot of blending when you go to your next shade.
Start out with a base blue or mid tone blue, use sky blue ink, and drybrush your
next mixed shade onto the model. (from what i've been hearing you'll want to
water your paints down) Ask in forum later. I'll try to get back to you.
When you work up to your highest shade of blue, such as ice blue, you'll want
to mix turquiose into it. Leave the model for now, and start picking out the raised
areas of the models, this is where your going to drybrush your grey onto the model
(you'll want to use thin layers of drybrush, do this three or four times, cause your
trying to just get the raised areas)
Then start mixing in your white to dry/highlight the model.
