#BloodBowl - Halfling Team - Pink Shirts

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Halfling #BloodBowl team. Yep, that's pink! Vallejo Model Color Magenta Fluorescent. 

I don't have any Contrast paints but I suspect this is somewhere between a Contrast and standard acrylic paint. You can see in places areas of highlight where the white basecoat is showing through, pink in others and the red prime for the shadows.

I think that's why I have some reluctance for Contrast in that despite years of '2 thin coats' to get a flat colour it uses it's shade to highlight to give a finished effect, but essentially it's 'patchy', with areas thick with paint and bits without. 

I'm not sure why I'm so bothered, I never do two thin coats, I always want that additional texture, Contrast should be perfect for me.

Regardless, I'll capitalise on the highlight, just the one coat, throw on some additional red wash shading and then more highlights.

You'll be pleased to know that I've progressed greatly since these pics, they're ready to be flocked. That does mean there is only one set of pics since these and it's the practically complete models. 

Sorry, but I've had a number of real-life things keeping me preoccupied so although I have found time to hobby, the blog has taken a back seat for a bit. Don't worry, some posts lined up.
