Default Scscifield's Raptors Chapter Plog

So the new game store is in the mall and I have decided to pound out a 1500 point list of Raptors.

It will be using the Primaris Dark Imperium set and some other odds and ends to fill that out.

Today I dug some Terminators and a Tactical Squad out. I also dug a Predator out and magnitized it. Just have to slap some sand on the bases then primer all of it.

Will use the older models to test out my plans with my airbrush before I turn to the DI set.

Progress, got everything bases and most primed. The Predator body needs to be primed still. My air compressor overheated and stopped working while I was priming it. Will have to do smaller batches with it.

The Terminators was late night drunk air brushing. Looked them over this morning and feel I didn't do too badly on them. They need a wash then highlights and whatnot. Debating doing a green or a brown wash ATM for them.

Have you done a test model or are you painting these up and figuring it out as you go?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I am roughly using that as a baseline idea.

you're totally going to lose your models in the terrain with those gloriously muted colours. I look forward to seeing this develop.

Don't think we have seen many Raptor players on the board's, a very "real world" looking chapter with the muted colour scheme. I think you should go with a green wash rather than a brown, the brown may end up giving them a dirty or rusted look rather than just a nice shading

I went with the green wash. Then I started to attempt edge high lights. This is the point that always ends up with me stripping models because I get annoyed at my attempts.

Plan to just accept and deal with these models and hope I get better control before I hit the Primaris models.

At the moment I am debating using a glaze on the model to try and make the transitions a bit smoother. Just worried that it will make the green to 'bright' if I do so.

Blacklining seems to made it slightly less annoying. Still debating doing a glaze.

So you guys seen the scheme I am going for with the Raptors. I need opinions on what colors to use for plasma weapons, cloaks, and power weapons. The eyes will be a light blue, the overall scheme is going to be more muted than not so flashy metallic are probably out. I do need to have a decent contrast accent in terms of the three things I listed above though.

Personally I'd use a warmer colour for the eyes to provide more contrast against the pale green, like orange or purple. Maybe save the blue for larger areas like plasma coils. To keep with the theme of the more realistic scheme of the Raptors maybe the cloaks should be an earthy tone like brown or dark grey, something that won't stand out on the battlefield.
