Sons of Medusa – Color Test

I painted up a tac marine up real quick tonight to see if my plan for painting would work. The picture doesn’t show it very well and there is a little bit of sloppy work from rushing it, but I’m really pleased with the result. I will change a few things, but the overall plan should work out.

Ranger paint test scheme

Ranger with Snow Camo Cloak

I did a test paint scheme on a Ranger tonight.  Ended up trying 4 shades of grey and white paint to do a snow camo scheme.  Pretty happy with how it turned out.  I need to do some work on his backpack and gear and get some details done on the front, but it gives me template for the squad.

Mymeara color scheme test

I couldn’t sleep last night after getting a nasty cold, so I pulled out the airbrush and paints and did an experiment to see what colors to redo my Eldar in.  I like the result so-far, though I went a little too heavy with the blue on the airbrush and in future models will have more green.  Also the white is a little too stark.  I will try and get a warmer white for the base and use the brighter just on the highlights.  I also had some trouble with the airbrush clogging up on the paint, so I need to mix my base colors up with a lot more thinner in a separate dropper bottle ready to go for when I crank the army out.  I also need to figure out what I’m going to do for bases.  I want to make ice-field bases.  I’m thinking maybe I could use some water-effects on top of painted-broken tiles.  Should be a fun experiment.
Colors used:
White Pimer
