How do you all paint your chaos warriors?
Specifically, are there any of you that paint your warriors in the default "swords of chaos" scheme? How do you guys recomend painting your warriors? I figure that I might just highlight chaos armor with boltgun metal, but honestly I have no idea. i was looking at the GW how-to scheme, but I just hate the dirty metal look.
I just started painting a few warriors. I'm going for the paint scheme they feature on the back of the box, the big picture. The trouble is that this scheme is not featured on the box where they say what the colors are. I don't like the metalic line job on the armor, so I lined mine with codex grey. Chainmail is painted with boltgun metal. The capes are scorched brown basecoat and then komando khaki. The fur is scorched brown with snakebite leather. I did use metalics (chainmail) on the weapon blades, but I lined the other metal parts with codex grey. I did a little bit of wet blending on the cape, especially the side which faces the front, because it is darkest.
Ok, below is my scheme, the warriors look a bit space wolvish and I like it this way.
Unfortunatelly after a few games I am not going to use warriors, they are just too slow, and cost too much points, but I am going to paint knights the same way... soon.
I painted my warriors with a dark blue as the base with burnished gold for the trip and textured pieces. I guess it's harder to describe than I thought. I'll get some pictures posted up soon.
