I believe the next Chaos Space Marine army I will paint will be the Violators and so I spent a bit of time reading up on their background and iconography and stuff. The thing is, their armour is described as sky blue with "purple ichor" weeping from the joints. Logically, the best way to do this with Citadel paints would be to use Magenta Ink, slightly watered, and apply it to the joints but it always seems to pool on the edges of the armour plating rather than staying where I want it to and it doesn't look particularly ichor-ish. I'm not too sure what to do at this point - any suggestions?
Future Floor Polish. Mix some with the ink to help prevent 'tide marks'. There are other professional products that will do the same job but *hey* whatever works.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Mix a little purple paint with the ink.
Add a surface tension breaker as mentioned above.
This might help.
Gloss coat the resulting 'ichor' to make it more realistic.
That's what I would try.
