I've bought a small force of DE's.

Started out painting them the traditionally dark, blue, green. But found the scheme was just too dark for my liking.

So I'm trying something red (seems I always go red...)

Heres the beginning of a Raider-transport. The paints are: Base: hull red, Lines: red scarlet. Highlighs: Troll slayer orange.

Cant decide what the boardplanks should be...

Very nice. Looks like the are airbrushed highlights but they are a bit hard to see in the picture. I will look forward to seeing a nice picture of the finished model with beautiful airbrushed transitions:-D

Heh the first, red, highlight is airbrushed, the second, orange is painted on. I do not have a steady hand yet, but i'm getting better by the minute =)

I have some trouble finding the right exposure on my phone, and I have to order a new charger for my camera. But hopefully I'll be able to put up some pictures soon =)

Oh No!! That's the worst thing I've heard today!

At my work we always joke, "we do it nice, because we do it twice.". (or occasionally, thrice).

Good luck with the do-over.

Bugger! I feel for you Komfritten. I thought for a moment you were going for some kind of fancy star pattern/nebula!

After the ... minor setback... I think I will take a break from my raider... It will stand at the shelf and remind me not to paint when Im sick with fever and tired from no sleep...

Argh! Shocked
It was looking pretty cool before the accident, if you feel like to start on it again I'd use the same colorscheme! Smile

To get some distance to my wrecked raider, I started up on the Talos Pain Engine - I really like that model for it's weirdness and evil purpose.

Here goes:

Painting on my infantry while the Pain Engine dries.

Think I'm gonna up the colours and highlight to a more extreme to get the same feel as the TPE.



The dark around the eyes is actually violet eyeshadow! =)

The skin is quite tedious work... At the moment I whished I masked the shell of and sprayed it, but thats to late. Lots and lots of layers to cover that dark red ... Well, soon I'll be done with that part =)

The dark red looks fantastic. Did you mask each segment? I am not sure how this model breaks down, but sometimes airbrushing parts unassembled can speed things up.

Yes i masked each segment. The top cannot be painted separately unfortunately.

I'm quite happy with the choice of colours myself. Smile
