Hello everyone, 15 used and partially assembled Skinks were bought some time by me to experiment a bit before I would paint something bigger someday. Lets hop to images and questions, shall we? THE PLAN Inspiration came from Total War: Warhammer 2 model render, which I assigned paints to. Later on I quickly noticed why looking at paints on the internet alone is not enough, but the image above always gives me more or less the way I want to go. PRIMER I started Citadel Corax White spray and I must say after some practice (one skink had to give up almost all his details in the process) its my weapon of choice comparing to doing all the coating job with a brush. Its so good that it even leaves by bad seam removal job SKIN(K): BASE Base Layer was done by Glacier Blue (you can notice its actually much lighter than on the producer (Vallejo) given image), so I could drop using white paint on the front skink parts, as that would be almost unnoticeable anyways. For scales I started with other spectrum and hit the guy with Heavy Blue. Did 3890380 overpaints to make sure only the scales are done with the heavy variant. After that I made a wash from Glacier Blue to help me a little bit (forgot to take intermediate image, sorry). SKIN: WASH And here I did something crazy Mixing 2 parts of Glacier Blue with 1 part of Electric Blue (which is, BTW, completely different color than presented on the screen oO) made the color for the thin wash for the whole upper part of the body which: * gave me highlights for free * reduced the contrast between Heavy Blue and Glacier Blue * reduced the scales visibility (and here is my mistake of not wiping the back scales after applying the wash) About the last one I wonder does it make sense to repaint the scales or just try something else?
