Quick Update, guys,
I'll be posting up an image or two of what I've been up to once I get off of work tonight. I won't be posting these to show anything off, but I'm more looking for advice because I'm somewhat stumped on how to proceed with some of these models.
I still have an idea or two on what I want to do with the Akhelian Guard. But the colors I'm using for the celestial dracoline don't seem to be jiving together like I thought they would. More on that later though.
For these guys, I'm trying to decide what a good layer for the skin would be. I based them with mechanicus standard grey and then Teclis blue to experiment with the color scheme a little. I washed them with Drakenhof Nightshade. I might just layer up with Teclis blue again and use some brighter green highlights for the pattern on the skin, like sybarite or sotek green.
For Astreia Solbright, I've tried highlighting her skin a couple times, until I reached the point that I felt that I had to start over. I basecoated with Daemonette Hide, which I felt was still pretty bright for a base paint. I toned down the skin with an overall wash of Druchii Violet, then I tried to layer most of the skin up to Warpfiend grey... The Warpfiend grey looked so unnaturally bright and weird even though it's supposed to layer over Daemonette Hide. Maybe I'm highlighting it wrong and just need to focus on edge highlighting?
I've kept these guys based in the Mechanicus for now until I figure out how I want to paint this unit. I have a mind to try and mirror the Allopex Shark I painted before. But I want to keep the whole unit consistent I Think.
Also, managed to snag this ghostie off of ebay!!!
