Steve here, I hope that you have had a great holiday weekend if you celebrate. Tonight I wanted to show you a set of WIP for Oh, the Horror! week as I build a detailed painting guide for my Herald of Tzeentch on a Burning Chariot and more Pink Horror models.
Let's get started with progress on the Burning Chariot.
Herald of Tzeentch on a Burning Chariot - Magical Energy
My first step after the priming was to wash the whole model in Coelia Greenshade.
I then drybrushed Ulthuan Grey quite heavily on the model.
The blue tendrils are going to be attached to two Screamers of Tzeentch. I blended Kantor Blue down the tendril gradually adding more and more water onto the brush and blending it into the green the further down the tendril I got. The picture does not do justice to how pleased I was with this technique.
There are little flames within this part of the model. I plan on painting these in a reverse highlight of the different colors used on the Screamers to tie these pieces of the model together.
I also need to blend in the highlight colors for the Screamers on the tendrils to the left.
Herald of Tzeentch on a Burning Chariot - Disc of Tzeentch
|Notice the feet where the Pink Horror Herald will be added.|
I am really happy with the color scheme here, though I was not as accurate as I would like with the painting. This scheme follows the same guide for the Skyfires in February's White Dwarf magazine.
Primed: Black, with a spray coat of Leadbelcher over it.
First, I washed the top of the disc with Druchii Violet. I did this on the design parts of the spikes protruding from the disc as well. I did not touch the bottom of this piece. I touched up the spikes and silver metal designs around the outside of the disc with Leadbelcher when the wash dried.
Next, I painted most of the design and raised pieces in Retributor Armor. I washed this color with Reikland Fleshshade. The raised objects on the sides of the spikes were also painted in this way.
I need to highlight the gold and silver portions here, as well as start painting the tomes. I am nervous about painting the text on these books.
Herald of Tzeentch on a Burning Chariot - Screamers of Tzeentch
I am using this guide by GMP Miniatures to paint my Screamers, though without an airbrush. So far, I have only basecoated the models in Kantor Blue.
I will be drawing up the highlights of the model and paint the lighter underside. Very early in this portion of the model.
Pink Horrors of Tzeentch - Skin Tones
My paint scheme for Pink Horrors was found here. I loosely followed this painting guide and will write about my process here. There are a few interesting guides here and I want to paint these Horrors a few different ways and figure out what works best for me. My wet palette above shows the colors used (except for the wash) for the skin. I will be mixing these colors of Pink Horror -> Emperor's Children -> Screaming Skull to gradually draw up the colors of these Horrors. Below I will show the process, or at least the start of it.
|Pink Horror based over a prime of white|
I started tonight with a basecoat of Pink Horror over the white prime coat. I am currently watching the Carroburg Crimson wash (not pictured) dry on the models.
I will mix some of the Pink Horror and Emperor's Children together and drybrush that mix on the model. I will then drybrush just Emperor's Children, and so on - gradually going zenithal with my highlights and mixing in the Screaming Skull. Not too bad!
I hope that this update can help you get started on some Tzeentch models or some Horrors if that is where you are in your hobby. What do you think?
