    Thanks mate!

    I'll try adding a little bit more sand on the really patchy bits.

    Gaaaaagh!!!!!

    Life has a funny way of diverting me from finishing my models.

    I've got a Deathshrieker Rocket waiting for a paint job and a Magma Cannon to build! Very annoying.

    Okay, so I found a color scheme that I like.

    I'm totally out of touch with 40K fluff, but I'm pretty sure that "Kalabite of the Obsidian Rose" is a Dark Eldar thing.

    I like the scheme, so I'll use it for my Chaos Dwarfs!

    I need to order the paints and then watch some videos for how to do the effects.

    That looks very fitting for Chaos Dwarfs.
    Good luck

    Grrr, Imrahil

    @Sudsinabucket

    Hi matey. Any ideas what video I would search for for this kind of bleeding effect on the Kalabite armour? (from two posts above)

    Or any advice yourself? :D

    I'm really not sure about videos specifically for this, but I'll take a look and see if I can find some. @Imrahil or @LordBaconBane might?

    As for my own....

    I have no idea for the helm and such, but for the legs I'd base/prime black, building up layers of khorne and med reds, darker to lighter and maybe a blood angels wash? Followed by pallid wych flesh for the highlight line down, and probably nuln oil

    Not 100% sure but from looking that's what id consider personally. I'd love another opinion though or your own thoughts on how you'd do it. I dont do 40k, so that kind of armor is a little off my game, but fun to think about

    From a knowledge friend via IG/Discord:

    "Basecoat Khorne red. Heavy shading with contrast black or Nuln Oil. The its a gradient highlight on all the edges of the panels, all the way from dark red to orange/yellow. For the colors of the gradients check this tutorial: https://www.instagram.com/p/CGKTImnH-X6/ "

    So, kinda what I was saying, and that is a tutorial he suggested! Hope it helps!

    I think I found a youtube tutorial that gets close to what you want to achieve.
    The thing is it is mostly Vallejo paints...



    the one from GW by Duncan gives quite a different result.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Thanks guys.

    I love this community for exactly this kind of reason.

    I'm a little imtimidated with the longer videos, so I'm going to try doing what Duncan says with basecoating Abaddaon Black and then using two reds and an orangey color to make edge highlights and see how it goes.

    In other news, I finally started my Magma Cannon. REEEEEEAAAALLY annoying having to cut the tiny bits of the sprues, but that's done now and I'm onto fitting everything together.

    Cleaning those models up is an atrocious task! My Fireborn were a nightmare.

    Hi @Lizards of Renown. I know I'm late to post, but I agree with @Sudsinabucket that a Khorne Red base with Black Templar Contrast wash might be a quick method for getting the foundation you want. When Contrast first came out, the owner at my local shop tried out that exact color combo (not for Eldar, just messing around). The space marine he painted had really nice dark red armor with lighter red edges. It might take two washes to get the almost black armor look though, so it would be smart to test a model.

    Good luck.

    Thanks! Once my Chaos Dwarf infantry arrive, I'm going to try yours/Suds suggestion, the video from Imrahil and the video from Duncan and see which one I like best.
