    :sorry: Man I can only see to top edge of the pictures, the rest refuses to load and I just get this weird grey static in its place.

    STRIKING!

    That's the word I've been looking for while I drooled over the pictures.

    Very striking painting style, also WELCOME!

    I actually used some white modeling epoxy. Similar to Green stuff. Works great for larger objects.

    Thanks! Glad they loaded finally!

    Thanks!

    So for the red scales I started out with a very dark mix. I didnt use Citadel paints for these...so theres no "used this color then this one" thing here. My base coat was a very dark burgundy with brown in it. I then used a much brighter red for the first layer, in order to really define the recesses. I didnt do any dry brushing for the scales. Everything was done in progressively lighter colors. Took alot of time to do but its worth it!

    Thanks!

    I started out with grey primer (in hindsight white would have been better.) I then had to do about 2 coats of Ceramic White (I used all Citadel paints on this) for the parts I was going to have white. I also then painted all the parts that were going to be the darker blue with The Fang. Shaded all over with Drakenhof Nightshade. Then the color progression was this:

    Blue:
    The Fang (to bring the color back instead of the much darker shade)
    Another coat of Drakenhof Nightshade
    Another layer of The Fang
    I SHOULD have done a highlight pass on most of the darker blue and I may do so at some point. But I left it there.

    White:
    I basically bordered the recesses with these colors, layering them up to a final white. It works out well that the below listed greys are more blue than grey.
    Russ Grey
    Fenrisian Grey
    50% Fenrisian Grey 50% Ulthuan Grey
    Ulthuan Grey
    50% Ulthuan Grey 50% White Scar
    White Scar (final highlights)

    It looks nice, i will try it with some Terradons, since the result in them was what called my attention to look closer to the colours. I am amazed...
    Thanks for the tips!;)
