I have made my first DE purchase today (Ravager), and my ideas for my initial 1,500 point lists are coming together; I will be using Wyches in Venoms, some just Haywire for anti-vehicle, some more combat orientated; these will be a mix of GW and Blood Vestals.
Some Trueborn with Sliscus, and a female Archon with Incubi, some Reavers and a Ravager make up my starting list.
I want a bright, vibrant colour scheme; I'm using Ivanka Kurganova as my Archon, and I like this colour scheme:
I like the idea of bright, post-box red army; I want both the vehicles and the better-clad figures to leap off the table!
Do any of you have experience with bright red? Maybe as Blood Angels? Should I undercoat black then layer up with red by brush, or can I cheat with Army Painter's Pure Red undercoat? (I'd like to!)
Would a fully red vehicle be too much? How will flesh tones work next to bright red armour?
I am not a very good painter, and I don't want to spend a vast amount of time on painting; it's a means to an end for me, I get no pleasure from painting, only the satisfaction of completion.
My Skaven are all Army Painter Leather Brown undercoat, base coated other colours for cloth or metal, then the whole lot doused in Devlan Mud; this is as good as I care for my painting to be!
Any advice gratefully received; I am looking for a result rather like the Army Painter tutorial on Mantic Elves, and am wondering how that will translate to vehicles.
