This is a homebrew chapter devoted to Slaanesh, inspired by the artwork of the Myrmidesh Painbringers.

The main colours are silver, purple, and pink with elements of dark blue and green.

General Information:

My general method is to lay down all the base colours for the model, then do all the shading in the recesses before moving on to the highlights.

I don't own an airbrush, so the recipe will mainly consist of brush on paints.

Priming:

I find the metallic sprays from GW tend to be a little on the transparent side, so an initial undercoat of grey helps.

  1. Prime the model lightly with Mechanicus Standard Grey
  2. Prime over that with Leadbelcher

Silver (Armour Trim):

I generally start with the armour trim so that any time I get paint on another piece its easy to cover later.

For grenades, replace Nuln Oil with Athonian Camoshade

  1. Drybrush over the model lightly with Leadbelcher to even out the colour
  2. Shade the recesses and around any rivets with Nuln Oil
  3. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with Stormhost Silver

Purple (Armour Panels):

  1. Base with Daemonette Hide
  2. Shade the recesses with Druchii Violet
  3. Highlight the edges and along the inside of the armour trim with Slaanesh Grey

Pink (Shoulder Pads):

  1. Base with Screamer Pink
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Highlight the edges and along the inside of the armour trim with Pink Horror
  4. Add point highlights with Kislev Flesh

Green (Details - Cloth, Cables, Wraps):

  1. Base with Incubi Darkness
  2. Shade the recesses with Nuln Oil
  3. Highlight the edges with Kabalite Green
  4. Add fine points with Sybarite Green

Gold (Details - Chaos Icons, Weapon Trim):

  1. Base with Retributor Armour
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with Stormhost Silver

Red (Details - Lenses, Chaos Eyes):

  1. Base with Mephiston Red
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Layer the middle with Wild Rider Red
  4. Add fine points of Fire Dragon Bright

Brown (Details - Leather Pouches):

  1. Base with Rhinox Hide
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Roughly highlight the edges with Skrag Brown
  4. Add a fine highlight of Ushabti Bone

Black (Details - Armour Ribbing, Weapon Casing):

  1. Base with Abaddon Black
  2. Highlight the edges with Eshin Grey
  3. Add fine points of Dawnstone
