She was done mainly by airbrushing. Her skin is Vallejo Model Air Skin Tone over Vallejo Game Air Barbarian flesh, washed with Reikland Fleshshade, then a thinned burst of VMA Skin tone followed by a thinned (and targtted) wash of Druchii violet.
Her golden pieces are are Vallejo Metalics Copper and Gold. Based with Copper, highlighted with a 50:50 mix, then a final edge highlight (with airbrush) of Gold. These paints are an absolute dream. Stop using GW metalics and get these.
Her boots and gloves are a mix of Vallejo model wash grey, nuln oil, abaddon black and incubi darkness. Her hair is the same mix but with more green (so that when she becomes the Shadow Queen the hair and snakes resemble one another).
The fabric is Screamer Pink on the outside and Khorne Red on the inside. Both washed with Nuln Oil, Druchii Violet and highlighted with the original colour and edhge highlighted with Wazzdaka red and Slannesh Grey respectively. The Slaanesh grey was the tough bit. It needed significant clean-up and a targetted wash. I learned my lesson here - use a bigger brush!
Her hair and cloth were the only bits not airbrush based and honestly I regret not doing that. It was becuase messed up the order in which I painted by starting with the metalics and then the skin - which is how I would hand brush (inside-out and all that) - but I should Have started with hair and cloth, then the metalics, then the skin.
Here's some pictures of Morathi. This was a nice model to work with for teh most part. Her head was difficult though and I messed-up her eye make-up a bit - you can really only see the errors on camera though.
Her colour scheme is an evolution of the Witch Aelves's on which I've made some further progress:
I'm still undecided as regards which Temple I'll go with but the scheme is versatile enough to fit in with either the Khailebron or Draichi Ganeth temples.
Here's some pictures of my hobby progress this week!
5 Witch Aelves
2 Sisters of Slaughter
1 Death Hag
Some of these models look a little "beat-up" as they have been stripped and repainted and repaired a number of times unfortunately. But they serve as a decent starting point for the new army
Here's a few updated images of the colour scheme on the first Witch Aelf and on a second one too. Apologies for the phone photos
I'm generally happy with the scheme. If it looks ok on these two it should look better on other models. These ladies have been test models for a number of colour schemes over the last 2 years and have stood-up to a lot of paint stripping. There are some flash issues here and there that I'll fix with the next few models too!
Hi everyone. This is the beginning of my test colour scheme for my Daughters of Khaine army.
It's using a bronze and purple on pale skin combination. It's still early stages so she might need some cleaning up.
The whole mini was zenithal highlighted and then the skin was airbrushed with Vallejo Game Air Barbarian Flesh, then highlighted with Vallejo Model Air Skin tone. A 1:1 Druchii violet and medium mix was then washed into the recesses, followed by a 1:1 Caroburg Crimson and medium wash into the eyes and mouth. Finally the skin was dry brushed with Pallid Wych Flesh and a second glaze/shade of the eye sockets and then the skin is done.
The armour and fabric is following WHTV's sister of silence bronze and purple method but the metalics are all Vallejo metal colors.
I've only base coated the steel and the bronze needs cleaning up and a couple of highlights.
The hair has me completely stumped though. I'm not sure why but the Khailebron hair (nihilahk oxide washed) appeals to me but I'm not sure.
Welcome to my hobby progress plog. For the next few months this will focus on my adventures building and painting my AOS armies and Terrain. The forces on my hobby bench at the moment are
Mixed Order / Hammerhal City alliance. This is my Archmage from the Spire of Dawn set. Just bought from ebay last week.
Daughters of Khaine
This is just phase one. More to come this weekend with Morathi and another box of Witch Aelfs!
I have a Dark Oath Warqueen in the works
The next few weeks will be dominated by Daughters of Khaine progress. Here begins my war on the legions of grey plastic, wish me luck!
