All paints from Army Painter's Warpaints range.
Red tone ink
Strong tone ink
I started with a 2-3 layers of pure red using the artwork as a guide.
I haven't used the washes much in these tutorials so I thought I would give the red an all over wash of red tone ink.
I added a little black to the red tone and used this to enhance the shading.
I added a little white to the pure red and applied this as a broad highlight on the edges, muscles and folds of the red suit.
The black was basecoated with black!
With a mix of hydra turquoise and black I lightened the suit leaving black only in the recesses.
I added white to the mix and highlighted the usual places.
The straps and pouches were basecoated with leather brown.
Then washed with strong tone ink.
Further shading was done with a mix of oak brown and a little black.
Highlights were done with skeleton bone.
The swords were basecoated with a mix and crystal blue.
To shade the swords I used a very dilute layer crystal blue.
Highlights were done with white.
To finish the model I black lined all joints and recesses then applied a sharp highlight of white to a few places on the suit.
