My first attempt, on a fire warrior pulse rifle, was far to thick and pale. I therefore decided to put some thin stripes of Mephiston Red down first on some drones. I then went over this with a couple of thin layers of Troll Slayer Orange.
I'd probably get away with a single coat of Jokaero Orange since it's a base colour. However, I don't own any so who knows. I think they add a little bit of pop but they'll be of more impact on the vehicles since I'll be able to bigger areas. I thought I might put some transfers on them and then use them as effectively stencils for going over in Orange.
I think you guys are right too, the black in the panel gaps and highlights will make things look a lot better. That'll take a very long time to accomplish though.
So, from my list of jobs I've only got the following left:
- Sept markings
- Squad markings (maybe done with varying sept markings on squads)
- Panel lines
- Improved basing
Still plenty to do then! One thing's for sure though. I'll find it even more fun to annoy Matt with drones now they're painted!
