Probably it could - The poblem is that at this point I'm a bit scared of messing up the models by trying it. I cannot see my way out of highlighting them effectively and with a subtle touch, as I am at a loss as to which colour would be good.

My best bet would be a red mixed with bone colour, but that would be too much.

Oh you should have seen the first tries I had at this - It looked horrible! What I found out is that I had a tendency of being afraid of the white color, so I underdid it and there was waaay too much blue compared to white. It looked very false and like a mistake.

My advice? Overdo the whites a tad - If 80% of the color is white, it will look more bright and the colour you use to emphasize the white will look like just that.

And I wouldn't worry about glory - Your army looks great man. I would be honoured to play against you some day!

Quick update from here - As today I'm having a pre-tournament game. It's rare I post pictures of my army lists, but I thought it was would be good to see some of the army in pre-game shots.

Today I'm playing against someone from my team, as the tournament is a team-against-team effort. I'm playing a "standard" Chaos Marine list, as he wants to practice his Ork list against that army. Our opponent team has a Chaos Marine player, so I made a list composed of units I know he owns, so my teammate has a chance to practice against things he might come up against.

The 1850 list looks like this:



In short the list is this:

HQ:

- Lord of Nurgle, bike, sigil, powerfist, lightning claw
- Daemon Prince of Nurgle, armor, wings, Black Mace, lvl 3 psyker

Troops:

- 10 Plaguemarines w/ Rhino. Sergeant has power sword.
- 10 Plaguemarines w/ Rhino. Sergeant has melta bombs.

Fast attack:

- 5 Spawn of Nurgle
- Helldrake w/ baleflamer

Lord of war:
- Chaos Knight Paladin w/ Dedication to Khorne (+D3 attacks on charge, reroll stomp number)

1850 points on the dot.

There are some proxies, but overall the new theme is starting to come together just fine. The Heldrake is hopelessly old, but I very rarely use them so it hasn't been a priority.

It will be fun!

Another quick update:

So I got both my mandatory and my Nordicus challenge done in one batch, for the monthly painting challenge - Here's 3 Word Bearer Rhinos.



Aaand a family shot:


I will take better pictures when able. Until then, I will continue on with my Sicaran and get that done this week as well.

y'know, that light effect is just a little touch, but they take the models to the next level. Excellent stuff!

Thanks a lot - It means a lot as the OSL is one of the areas where I'm still not trusting my own skills just yet.

It does seem like people love those OSL lights; I have gotten no less than 7 PMs about them and 13 requests on Facebook about how I did them. So here's a mini tutorial.

For the headlights that I have done, you would need 3 colors and an airbrush:

- Any pure white (Vallejo, Citadel, etc)
- P3 Meredius Blue
- P3 Arcane Blue

Crank you PSI on your airbrush to around 20 PSI.

Thin down the P3 paints with the distiller of your choice, so they are ready for the airbrush; I use demineralized water myself.

Step one: Meredius Blue

Spray the whole area that you wish to cover. This step will look like utter crap, but will be the baseline of the width of the light that you are creating.

Step two: Arcane blue

Cover roughly 85% of the area you just did with this blue, and leave the outer edges. Now you will start to see the contrast and the nice edges.

Step three: White

Cover 85% of the area you just did with pure white. You might be afraid to overdue it, but if you look at the photos above, the trick is actually that it is primarily white with blue edges. Many are too afraid to use too much white, which leaves them with a light that looks mostly blue and fake.

That's my process ^^ I'm sure you can get similar results with other blues (maybe some in a airbrush paint variant) but those are my choice paints.

Good luck guys!
