The Daemonettes are all wrapped up. Not a lot to say about them really. I was aiming for something that looked good on the table top, so no crazy techniques or anything going on.
I’m happy with the results, and honestly how fast I managed to get them done. Well, fast for me anyway. I hate batch painting, I really do, but it’s hard to argue with the effectiveness of it.
I’m going to start something different for me, and I’ll give the steps I used to paint the Daemonettes. Someone might be interested, right?
Daemonettes Painting Recipe
- Base coat skin with Warpfiend Grey (GW).
- Base coat hair and claws with Xerous Purple (GW).
- Drybrush hair with Daemonette Hide (GW).
- Drybrush hair with Genestealer Purple (GW).
- Base coat leather and claws with black. Also, pick out the eyes in black.
- Base coat metal areas with Runefang Steel (GW).
- Wash everything with Leviathan Purple (GW), but be careful to not let it pool too much on the metal. Aim for tinting.
- Blend, or layer if you prefer, the skin with Warpfiend Grey, leaving the wash in the recesses.
- Blend the skin with Slaanesh Grey (GW), again leaving the previous layers visible. Mostly just hitting the brighter spots on the model.
- Highlight the black with Cold Grey (Vallejo).
- Highlight the hair with Genestealer Purple.
I know it seems like a lot of steps for something table top, but it all goes very quickly, except blending/layering the skin, and even that isn’t bad considering. Hell, if someone wanted to save time, you could call it a day after you wash the skin in step #7. They’d be darker than what you see of course.
Now, it’s time to work on the Chaos Knight Titan. That model is going to take me forever to paint, but it’s going to be a nice change from batch painting 10 models.
