Help me pick some substitute colors!

Recommended Posts

I am painting my Skorne army purple and gold. I found great golds with PP metallic paints, so improvement now comes to the cloth.. The recipe currently is:

 

Blood Red + Breonne Blue (2:1) for a base coat.

Citadel Daemonette hide, then adding in white for the highlights.

 

I am almost out of Deamonette, and it is annoying to layer with! Any ideas for a reaper equivalent? A dedicated color for the highlight would be nice as well!

 

Looking at this:

I think maybe imperial purple or amethyst purple? :)

 

Any ideas for colors to get for fun, to kickstart some painting motivaiton? :)

 

Edit: heres a trooper BTW:

My problem with mixing always comes back to mixing the same color again.  I need to take better records of what I used as well as what ratios I used I suppose.  But I'm normally stuck in the moment simply trying to get a mixed color I like and often forget what I used and to record it!

Can I interest you in the possibilities of self-mixing?

The little devil emoticon would've been perfect for this post!

I have to code emoticons by hand on my ipad and I haven't memorized that one.

Thanks everyone :)
 

You might as well get the whole triad and save yourself the mixing, too.

Oooh, Triad it is :D

 

(Or the same colors bought seperate, if I order from miniaturemarket, to get some warmahordes stuff as well :) )

*Naively enters the trap*

How do you do that, again? Do you start with a couple of colors only? Seems like a lot of work!

 

I do mix different reapers with this many drops to that many, tho.
