My son has started working on necons and he want to paint them blue with a tinge of white to get a frost effect.
He has not experience with painting models, so what brushes/paint do you recommend he to start with?
Anyways, the color scheme was VERY easy and generous when you missed a spot (easy to hide mistakes).
- My original primer was spray on duplicolor sandable primer - black [Found in the auto parts section, make sure to shake the can and keep it shaken..works great] (in retrospec I would likely go with the grey primer i have now [same product], black made it dark...less POP appeal).
- Next I base coated the entire model in chainmail
- Then the best part, Asurman Blue wash (from GW)...this stuff was GREAT! One light wash generously applied all over the model tints it light blue metallic. Careful here, I wanted an even darker blue so I washed each one a 2nd time...this definitely makes it VERY blue instead of a hazing effect. I recommend you try it on some sprue to see what you like best. Sounds like you might just want one base coat.
- After that I dry bushed chainmail back on top to give the raised edges that shine
- (I then SEALED them with a spray sealer. CAREFUL here! If you use a MATTE finish sealer your metal turns to GRAY, no more luster). Semi or gloss are ok, I'm not a fan of gloss because of the shine. This isn't required though.
- As for your FROST effect. You could put some basing snow on them or something else, can't really help with the FROST.

Off topic: I'm fond of that warrior holding his own skull.. I think you should do another one, but with a glow stick in place of the gauss flayer. Looks like he could be doing the "imma removin mah head" dance ;D
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.
