The Chariot Rides!

Or at least it will do soon as I've finally fixed my colour scheme! Oh happy days, praise be to Slaanesh! And to Shamus at the Dudley store for doing some painting experiments and helping me work this all out. Not too much though, don't want him getting too big headed.

So instead of the silver/gold effect I'm now going for a copper effect. The chassis and wheels are being based in Warplock Bronze, then layered up with Brass Scorpion and Runelord Brass, given an Agrax Earthshade wash on the wheels and a Seraphim Sepia wash on the chassis and dry brushed with Golden Griffon. The idea of this is to counter the brightness of the steeds and the daemonettes (which won't be painted like my unit of 10) to give the model a more balanced effect. The reason behind using the two different washes is that they each give a different hue to the Runelord Brass so it will have the effect of breaking up the block colour while still keeping to a theme.

The only part of the chassis that won't follow either colour scheme is the front part that looks like a partial mark of Slaanesh. That is being based with Abaddon Black, dry brushed with Golden Griffon and washed with Seraphim Sepia. Again this is to break up the block colour and provide a dark background for a bright part, this time the gems in the mark. The gems are based with Xerus Purple, highlighted with Genestealer Purple and Daemonette Hide, small glare spots were added in Ceramite White and then a coat of 'Ardcoat to make them shiny.

Pictures below as usual.
