I managed to find time to paint today, most of which i spent on this Thousand Son model. As much as I like the traditional yellow and blue stripes, I decided I wanted to try something different. I went with a turquoise blue kinda look… and when I was finished I really liked it. Now, hours later, looking at the photos and the model, I’m not quite as sure…
It seemed to me the yellow was too bright — I wanted to go for something darker and different. The turquoise seemed a good choice, and I used it for the eyes and ammo too, representing the same burning magic that fills the empty suit of armor also ignites their Inferno bolt ammunition. Think I need a touch more white for those glowing areas though.
It’s definitely a different dynamic, and it works but does it work as well as the iconic yellow? Any feedback/opinions welcome!
