I've had this idea of a paint scheme for some time. It would look best on Space Marines, but I can see it on Eldar or Tau. Nids, Necrons and Orks are out.
It's a play off of the old Japanese Naval Battle Flag, the rising Sun with Rays. I'll use SM as my example. The whole body would be primed in a light grey and then painted as bright white as I could get. On the left shoulder plate of a Space Marine you would make a red circle. From that circle would come 13 red lines. I want them to run across the body and fade out to white. I want to avoid a line across the dome of the head, or a bloodstripe on the legs. The lines may be too thin at 13 so I could cut it in half and get bolder lines with a better fade. Or I could do all 13, but not extend them all the way.
Any advice on this idea? Also, any advice on how to get a good fade from red to white without a pink transition? I'm thinking a drybrush technique, but that might be a quick fade. Also, I'd like a matte/eggshell like texture to the colour. Any ideas how I can accomplish this with acrylics?
All I can say - prepare to spend hours on your models with that. "Freehanded" lines like that, across uneven surface with fading and different texture than the previous layer? Wow, the bar is set very high my mate!

Your telling me! I don't even want to think about how hard it's going to be to get the little iPod's in their hands...
Thanks for the welcome!
