Hey all, i got 8 spine gaunts done, and im working on the hormagaunt prototype.
Color Scheme -
- skin: scab red, red gore, blood red
- carapace: midnight blue, royal blue ice blue
- veins/inside: sunburst yellow
- tongues are yet to be decided
a picture of my spine gaunts can be seen here:
now yes i know everyone is saying its the battle of maccrage color scheme. well i came up with this color scheme a year or 2 and only now have begun to paint it, and they are actually alot darker and there are some shading differences, but anyways
How to i paint the scything talons? or does anyone have any tips on it? I tried painting them like the carapace, ie going from the dark blue to ice blue on the tip, and it looks alright, but i want better. Im also experimenting codex gret with fortress grey, but i like the blues better. Or does anyone know of a good color scheme to go with them? ill get pictures up as soon as my digital camera starts working
i got some incredible shading effects from washing them, just remember to use a flow enhancer, water has waay too much serface tension and will ruin the effect by making color splotches on flat surfaces.
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
BTW heres the link, just put up the pictures. Does the hormagaunt with the blue look better or with the grey??
you can also see a megabattle, my newly painted griffon, and some of my friends painted models
I think you have a pretty nice color scheme going wiht the Red and Blue plates, though I would suggest leaving out the yellow or using a dull color. That yellow just makes them look too colorful. Also remember the brighter colors will draw the enemies eye more and so he will pay more attention to them. Make bright spinegaunts (says Shoot Me), and a duller scheme for your Hormagaunts. Though a skilled player will be more likely to ignore your color scheme some players will unknowingly focus on bright units. (My old Tyranids army back 4 or so years ago with the older models were a black/and brown base with dark green highlights and on a few occasions players missed my dull units simply because they blended in and my meat shields drew there eye, Termagants with Red base and light brown highlight. Hey, camoflauge works for lictors.
