Looking good, have you ever thought about trying to get the plates more blue vs black to give them a faded look. Seriously looking forward to seeing more of these posted.

Lookin good mate! Loving the contrast of the blue on the black and the black to the beige on the flesh of them.

Incidentaly, how did you do the beige?

+ Repatitis from me!

OK heres the start of my Termagants. All colours are Vallejo Game Colour unless otherwise specified.

Undercoat with Citadel Skull White spray

Spray on a coat of Bonewhite (Bleached bone in GW colours)


GW Gryphonne Sepia wash. I apply a heavy wash first and then once its dry touch it up where necessary,


Drybrush Bonewhite


Light drybrush of bonewhite/White (50:50)


And thats the body done. I do all this as a batch of 10, but from here on in I work in 2s or 3s

I paint the gun GW Orkhide Shade and the armour plates black
The hooves and claws get a coat of GW Chardon Granite, and the tongue if there is one gets picked out in GW Hormagaunt Purple


Next is another load of washes - Black for the gun and Mud to hooves & claws and the teeth/mouth & eyes


Now I apply the feathering to the armour plates
- Start with 50:50 mix of Hawk Turquise & black
- Next is straight Hawk Turquise
- Lastly a 50:50 mix of Hawk Turquise and stonewall Grey
With finer and finer feathering at each stage as shown (poorly) below


Good closeup of the "Ooops" on the back of this guys head here. Will have to sort that out

Teeth are piched out in bonewhite and highlightied with a 50:50 mix of bonewhite and white nd then finally white
Highlight the guns with Sick Green
Claws are highlighted with a mix of GW Chardon Granite & Khemri Brown and the hooves are slightly feathered with the same.
Eyes are painted mechrite red then higlighted with blood red
Tongue is layerer with GW Hormagaunt purple and then highlighted with Warlord Purple.


And thats it 1 painted Termagant ready for basing. Just 9 more to go now

Love it! I think that I mentioned in your thread where you built the Tervigon I really love the color scheme! The skin and the carapace work well together. Thanks for the step-by-step, as I love to see other folks process. Keep the horde coming... I might motivate me to work on my own +rep
