Default Breast Cancer Awareness Space Marines

Hello,

Well, for once my wife has given me a heads up months in advance.
As some of you may or may not know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. My wife and her friends participate in the Susan G. Komen events.
Getting to the point; I have been asked to create a diorama for their group's booth using Space Marines. My plans are to paint them in Pink with the left shoulder pad having a white field containing the pink ribbon. I do not know where I can find pink paint to match the shade I'm looking for. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? Or let me know which paint ratios from the GW line will do the trick?

Thanks in advance,

Jace

Tentacle pink is about right?

Tentacle Pink looks reasonable.

I might add a little Warlock Purple to the shading for vibrancy.

Thank you gentlemen, I appreciate it.

SGM: I forgot Tentacle pink was in the line up.

Dave: Have you done a mix like this before? If so, do you remember the ratios?

Given that I'm doing thus as a diorama and not needing to adhere to any codex, I'd like to include a standard bearer in the mix. Any place I can go to to get the parts without buying a command squad? Also, I'm planning to put this on a large wooden base. Never done that before, any advice there would be appreciated too.

DTHobbit is a Gentleman, I, however, am not

Indeed, if i recall correctly it can only be purchased online. I did a Crisis Suit in it once, it was.... Different

As for the bitz, several online retailers provide many parts seperate to their parent kit.
Try our very own Bits And Kits.

I would add some white to tentacle pink for highlights but it looks good to me. It's a great cause you aRe doing it for and having breasts myself
I would say that it's a great idea haha.

In regards to the standard bearer and pretty sure bits and kits will have one on his site...

I have not; however I would try something like:

2:1 Tentacle Pink:Warlock Purple shade

3:1 Tentacle Pink:Warlock Purple leaving the recesses uncovered

Pure Tentacle Pink Highlights

This avoids the risk of adding white to pink making it chalky sometimes.

If you want smoother transitions then you could start with a darker mix (1:1 say) and use some intermediate mixes (3:2 and so on) for parts that are further back or semi-shaded.

My first call for parts is Bits and Kits; he had a few different banners in stock when I just checked and I believe ships to anywhere within reason.

B&K is sold out as per the site. Auggies has it for $2.99 each, yikes.

Dave; thanks for the info, I will have to experiment.

Alice & LTP; honestly, I didn't know you weren't a gentlemen but, a ladies ;)

I thought they stopped making Tentacle Pink.
The site even says, "Availability: No Longer Available "
Unless BK has some old Pink laying around, I would suggest Vallejo
Here's the list of Vallejo colors. Looks like Squid Pink is what you'll need.
