This was a quick "loosener" before I knuckle down to a Primarch.
It's Br. Teapot the Mk5 RT model.

Basecoat of enchanted blue mixed with purple ink. Highlighted by adding white and a touch of liche purple. Then toned with thinned purple ink.

Didn't realise just how hard mauve was to nail without going too purple or too blue. The pics are still quite blue and the model looks more or less mauve in natural light or electric light - strange :huh:

The icons, as always, are freehand. Planned out in a mix of scaly green and basecoat then blocked in with snot green and lightened with scorpion green.

Very Clean paint job. I like this one lot. And thanks for putting up a how to guide. I've tryed to paint a few AL 's marine myself and i could never get the color's to come out right. Great job !

what colors would you use for one of them
i am color blind so dont say "just look at the mini and it was a blueish or something like that"
it would be great to use the GW paint names to
or just shades and mixxes you used

If you hadn't skim read the piece, you would see the recipe for the colours under the pictures :mellow:

Undercoated black; then a Hawk Turquoise basecoat was applied.

The armour was then washed with Leviathan Purple, before being highlighted with Hawk Turquoise and Rotting Flesh blends.
