So, in the cold afternoon light, it’s not as bad as I thought it was, I’m actually fairly happy with the scheme aside from the silver:
In addition to the silver though I’d spend some more time making the coverage of the sepia wash over the white more even so you there is less patchiness/fewer strokes visible, or failing that encorporate it in to the scheme.
I’ll finish the highlights on the purple and white/bone and do the gold just to test the rest of the scheme then do a final test model to doubly check I’m happy then strip off the three test models and apply the scheme to whole group.
One thing about the scheme is that the white isn’t even close to the reference image I was working on, but I quite like it. Maybe I’ll do a Mortifactors splinter chapter or something.
Somewhere in there I’ll assemble a couple of test models for my Necro gang and test their paint scheme, although I can’t see there being too many problems since they’re just following this general scheme:
Gotta grab the models for the guardians as well to check how much they dwarf the Neophytes since the Neophytes are 28mm and the Guardians are 50-something.
