|We are the Sons of Dorn! NO! Not Michael Dorn. Rogal Dorn!!!|
When trying to decide on a color scheme, I knew I wanted something I haven't really done or done a lot of in the past - blacks, blues, greens were all out for me. I had considered doing the Imperial Fists - yellow can be such a striking scheme, but has a reputation as such a pain in the ass to do. Unfortunately, I shared the idea of doing Imperial Fists with some friends who then proceeded to shame me into doing them! So here we are.
I tested out my color scheme and process on one of the Primaris Lieutenant models first. My thought was that if I screwed him up, I had another that came in the set. In the end, I was really happy with my yellow method and decided to try it out on a squad.
|I decided on a black and yellow scheme. It had a lot of buzz around it.|
|My recipe was simple. Prime White. Then spray with|
Krylon Sun Yellow. I much prefer spray paints to using an
airbrush - mostly because I don't have the personal discipline to keep
an airbrush clean the way it should be.
|The whole model is washed with thinned down GW Trollslayer|
|After the orange dries, wash the whole model with|
Army Painter Strong Tone Ink.

Next, I'll probably do the standard bearer guy from Dark Imperium as a "treat yoself" model. I find breaking projects up this way makes me more motivated and able to keep up a decent velocity.
