Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright I know this may seem weird but i'm stuck on how to paint the khorne scheme. I know it's red and bronze but I have seen a couple cool variations. I was going to go for a red gore, blood red, and blazing orange blended look but I saw boltmans awesome magmatrax model and a couple of other khorne models and I was thinking of doing a lava themed khorne scheme. Does anyone have an opinion on which looks better?
Hi, i'm not trying to sound rude but does anyone have an opinion? So far their are 30 views and no responses.... I was hoping to get a couple responses so I could paint tonight but I guess I can't...
Most of the people who actually post tend to get on later.
Also, I like the 'lava' theme.
Hi! Thank you for your opinion and info. Sorry I get a little impatient.
I actually did a Mecharius Solar Orange Blended to Mechrite Red with Ogryn Flesh as more of a heavy glaze to help darken the two and meld them together. I get a lot of good compliments on it. For models with metallics I use Shining Gold with, again, Ogryn Flesh applied as a heavy wash. NMM models use snakebite leather with black and/or white to darken. It isn't very bronze, but a true bronze doesn't provide enough contrast for my tastes.
I find those two foundations blend very very very well, much better than Blood Red/Blazing Orange. They are bright, but that is what the Ogryn Flesh is for.
I actually tried Red Gore, but I find it has a tint to it that clashes with any kind of bronze coloring. Obviously that is just my opinion, I know some people have used them to great effect. I would suggest spending an evening painting test models. Remember, a few hours now can save you weeks of work later if you don't like your colors.
Sorry for not using citadel paint names but i like a wider color palette.
Cadmium red medium and cadmium red light and black paint and black ink washes.
Mixed in some yellow with the cadmium red light for the highlights.
Black + red or darkened burnt sienna, burnt sienna for highlights and cadmium red, cadmium red light and yellow for the edges.
burrnt sienna and cadmium red medium hue, adding vermillion and yellow to the red for the edges of the shield.
I think this was rose madder = scab red and black

What might be worth experimenting with is basing the models with Dark Angels green, and work the red on that. i've done some minor colour samples on shields and having a dark green in the recesses and darker parts of the shield really helps to augment the red on the rest of the model. Complementairy colour use it's called I think?
Sorry if this post doesn't really help at all, I've just started painting more seriously so still trying a lot of things.
