After many many hours, my heavily converted regiment of Marauders is finally assembled. Hopefully, the painting should take less time.
My fingers are itching to get them painted; I've planned a sort of black and white colour-theme for my warband, although I'm tempted to mix in some blue here and there. Yes, that means I'm steering clear of the pink/purple Slaanesh look - I'm thinking something along the lines of how the old (6th ed) metal Daemonettes were painted by the 'Eavy Metal team (not my picture).
So, for these models, I've planned to paint the cloth white, armour will be black/dark blue iron, hair will be black and weapons normal steel. I have, however, not decided how I'm to paint their skin, I'm leaning towards a whitened Elf Flesh, but I got little experience with painting flesh, and I'm unsure whether this will conflict with the white cloth.
An alternative, would be to paint cloth black, armour and weapons as steel, and the skin very light, but I'm leaning towards the first scheme at the moment.
I'll undercoat them tomorrow morning, and after work I'll head down to the local GW store, as fridays are free for all painting nights, so I'll be able to test out all the paints in the GW range, for free. I'll test the first scheme out to begin with, and we'll simply have to see how it fits.
