I chose to test my color scheme on a single ripper. It didn’t come out exactly as planned, but none the less I like the results. The shell was supposed to be brown with a yellowish hue, not brown with a red hue. I’ll need to do another test with a different base color and see how that goes.
GW Skull White primer > Painted the shell Scorched Brown > Gryphonne Sepia wash over the whole model > Devlan Mud was into the recesses of the shell > Chaos Black on the claws followed by a high light of Codex Grey > Lastly the little base was done with Graveyard Earth
The scheme is meant to be as easy as possible while yielding good table top results as I plan on doing a sort of Iron Painter chalange. Next I think I’ll try a green shell with a whiter body.
Comments, criticisms and suggestions are more than welcome.
