First off, ran into a headache when the basecoat I wanted to use was way too pale. It gave me nothing to work with as far as contrast went. So I remembered that GW had just launched their new line of paints and I went out and checked them out. I love them! I’m very anxious to try out some of their new product like their dry paints and the textured paints. But for now I needed a basecoat. I picked up the recommended colors for Space Wolves and used their new “Fang” as the basecolor.
As you can see it yielded a much better result. The “Fenrisian Grey” will work well as a highlight color and then I plan to hit up the edge highlights with the new White to really make the models pop. As you can see below, I’m rapidly approaching the 3-color minimum I need to allow myself to play these at the Adepticon Gladiator. I still think I can finish them though.
Now to give the squads a liberal wash of “Nuln Oil” and the vehicles a nice wash of “Drakenhof Nightshade”, a wash I really really like!
