Hey guys, aside from my Blood Angels I wanted to add some EC into my collections and was wondering if everyone thought it looked ok.

Well that is lovely!

The eyes lenses are particularly nice. Is that a yellow on the shoulder pad?

Are you using the new purples?

Good work! :)

Thank you!

It's the new base bone colour on the pad, but it does look very yellow on the picture! I'm using GWs new purples though not the base as it's very dark.

Many thanks,

Aah much obliged.

So you're starting from a white undercoat?

I'm always putting off my Emperor's Children because of the awkward purple.

Also I stole your red recipe for my Blood Angel! :D

Glad I could be of some help :)

I started from a white undercoat with both the angels and this guy. I wish I could just make my mind up on what I'm doing, my friends keep telling me Emperors children, but I prefer the look of my angels. My friends are evil :(

I advise you to make more of them. Looks good, only advice is to add a wash or two and a highlight to the gold to give it some depth.Keep it up!

Very nice purple - not too dark and not too bright - (in true EC style) perfect!

I'd also suggest trying the purple wash, to see if it deepens the contrast on the armour, and maybe then redo the edge highlights to increase the contrast the other way too.
