So it was quick blast of Bahama Blue on the chitin. I was leaving the bases as is. They're subtly different in colour but I can live with that.
Sepia and Strong Tone washes on the chitin and some of the bone bits..
Turquoise striations on the chitin.
All the fleshy bits will be ready now for adding some Khorne Red.
And that's why I'm doing it to get those striations defined and the deepest blue areas to be darker with more depth.
Highlights on the turquoise and first set of highlights on the bone.
All the eyes, claws and teeth need doing, the red and tongues.
The bone also needs its second highlights.
Comparing the originals with one of the most recent bases. You can see the slight difference in basing, less orange and vibrant but as I'll be keeping them in broods of 3 there weren't be too much side-by-side comparison and most people won't spot the variannce.
Next stop, TO DONE! pics. Obviously I was supposed to be painting my Land Raider, and I have done some on it which I'll cover next time...
