    Thanks for the input. I was thinking something easy for the shields, more in the neutral side of colours. Actually I am musing about earth tones (graveyard brown as base and then lighter up to bleached bone and a quick wash). Would make painting them rather quickly. Red was also an option, but I'm unsure if it won't be too much colour, as I tried to keep colors on the skinks).

    @Aginor
    Colours I used:
    Prime white,
    base colour Macharius Orange.
    Then layering with a 50/50 mix MO/Gitz Yellow
    Next layer only edges with GY.
    After all is dry apply bloodletter (glaze). Finally bring back the highlights with GY.

    So long

    I really like this, comes off as very firelike, almost like a sunrise, I think you've done this brilliantly.

    I kept them blue. So that there's a strong complementary contrast to the rippers. In fact as my r&f skinks I showed earlier in the thread.

    Very nice colors!
    Love the Skink, and the color contrast to the Tequila Sunrise paint scheme of the Ripper is magnificient. :)
