This is my quick method to paint up a unit of Pink Horrors, I start out by testing on a single model and then paint in batches of 3. Once the Shade, Base, Shade stage is dry you can whip through each model in 20 mins.

The Horror

  1. Undercoat the model in Corax White or Wraithbone , for me I grabbed the nearest rattle can and have 6 in Corax White and 4 in Wraithbone.
  2. Rather than follow the method from GW, I did an initial shade with Carroburg Crimson , followed by a heavy drybrush of Pink Horror with a second shade of Carroburg Crimson . This gave more definition to the muscle structure on the Horror.
  3. I then thinned Emperor's Children with water and started to layer this up over the whole model, adding White Scar to the mix towards the end.
  4. The tongue was basecoated with Daemonette Hide , given a wash with Druchii Violet and a highlight with Celestra Grey .
  5. The eyes, teeth, nails and talons were basecoated with Celestra Grey with a highlight of White Scar
  6. Bangles, Rings and Braclets were basecoated with Balthasar Gold , give a wash with Reikland Fleshshade layered up with Auric Armour Gold and finally Stormhost Silver
  7. Finally the base is Steel Legion Drab , PVA glue and your preferred basing material. There is also a small magnet superglued to the underside of the base for transport. Duncan Rhodes has a great video on making cases here https://youtu.be/eKg8oPF4xfk.
