So, it didn't really take me this long to finish them. I just had tons of other stuff to do and I've been working every day now as a substitute English teacher. Here are the finished products from roughly where I left of in the last post.
|Here they are with the base Burnished Gold color added as well as the Regal Blue.|
|Now I've added the skin tone of Golden Shadow (Reaper M.S.), pseudo-Dallimore Golden Highlight (R.M.S.) and wash in Ogryn Flesh. The Feathers are in Stained Ivory (R.M.S.), highlighted in Creamy Ivory and washed in Sepia wash.|
|Now, I've added Red (Cel-Vinyl Colors) to the feathers and they are to be washed in Leviathan Purple. Red (Model Color) has been added to the gemstones and will be detailed in Red (CVC) and Yellow Orange (CVC) with a white accent dot.|
|You'll notice that the white has been added to the enamel inlays on the horses gear. I used Gray 1 (CVC) and White (CVC). The blue enamels are just Regal Blue and Deep Sky Blue.|
Another nice color combo for these would have been purples instead of blues. I've seen some people do High Elf armies in purples (royalty) instead of blues (nobility). Perhaps you'd do it just to make these Reavers stand out. Another thing to do would be to make the gems different colors. That wouldn't be too much, it wouldn't distract from the model. Technically there are two units of Reavers here, I was going to make the gems of one unit green and the others red. In the end I just chose to make them all red. I could have done the same with the feathers to differentiate the units.
