In these dark and uncertain times what is needed is something bright and cheerful. Accordingly, I present my latest work… 3 classic Dire Avengers for my slowly growing Alaitoc Warp Hunters army.
The colours used were largely the same as the earlier Dire Avenger.
Helmet: GW Flash Gitz Yellow, shaded with GW Contrast Iyanden Yellow and highlighted by adding white up to pure white.
Blue: Base coat of GW Regal Blue watered down heavily with GW Guilliman Blue (an old wash, any blue ink would do). Then I used GW Enchanted Blue to base coat the armour plates and added white to highlight. I added the highlights on really garishly, then glazed heavily with blue ink to tone them down before doing a final edge highlight in thinned pure white.
Red gems and lenses: GW Red Gore, highlighted with GW Blood Red, GW Blazing Orange, and GW dwarf Flesh and a spot of white…
Leather: Cote d’Arms Barbarian Leather (Snakebite Leather) shaded with GW Contrast Snakebite Leather then highlighted with GW Bubonic Brown then adding white to further highlight if needed.
