He wanted a dark red colour for the armour so I decided to undercoat the models black for added convenience.
I airbrushed a mixture of black and red paint, keeping it always as at a certain angle to achieve some highlighting.
After we painted all the skin parts with Dwarf Flesh and the hair with Orkhide Shade. I then airbrush Gloss Varnish to aid with washing. I used Thraka Green for the armour and enamel brown wash from MIG for the skin and hair. Leonidas had to leave at that point but I kept a model to further test the colour scheme. More pictures after the jump. Check them out and tell me what you think.
