MSP Color recommendations for Pink Horrors?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just got some Warhammer pink horrors and have no idea what MSP colors to buy to paint them. I have no pinks at all and don't know what would be best. Does anyone have any advice?

 

Note that I have all of the citadel shades so I think I'm covered there.


Thanks in advance!

I did mine with Punk Rock Pink. I figured, go big or go home!

Prom Night Pink?   

because monsters wants to feel pretty sometimes, too...  

 

Or just wait until October, send Reaper your best wishes and an order, and get a bottle of Breat Cancer Awareness Pink...

Reaper has this gadget they call The Power Pallette. I tried it on this image:

...it recommended:

09001  Brick Red

09027  Pale Violet Red

09026  Violet Red 

09098  Clear Magenta

09262  Blush Pink

Priming them white and then giving them a glaze or wash of that clear magenta might be the fastest / easiest plan. 

 

(If a low-effort, get 40 of them ready for a game, technique is called for.) Do they still have a rule where killing them sometimes spawns additional blue horrors?  I thought I remembered some wacky rule like that.

First Off, Sorry about the slow reply. No notifications showed up for me about this thread.

Yep.

They also [spawn?] appear in blue. 

 

@Blue22111  What have you got in the way of Reds and Purples?  Try adding pure white to some of those. 

 

The blue ones are different models (lore wise two blue horrors appear after a pink horror is slain).

 

I'm trying to avoid mixing if I can.

Old West Rose is another one. I like it for a mellow pink.

 

From the pic it looks like a nice color but I am going for vibrant.

That could work as a base color. Do you know how it goes with the other pinks (Punk Rock, Blush and Braaaains)? Because I'm trying to have two or three colors (base, layer, highlight (plus a shade but I already have that sorted)).

 

I actually have a bottle of Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, just don't want to use it for a major unit in an army because I only have one bottle and don't want to run out and not be able to paint a major part of the army.

I'm going for a nice display piece too (because I don't honestly play much, I just like painting)

Yep. It's called "Split" in Age Of Sigmar (it's on the warscroll for blue horrors if you're curious).

I don't think I agree with the magic of the power palette there, I can see the Blush pink but the others seem too dark.

 

Thanks for the recommendations thus far!

The squares on the website aren't the best representation of colors in the bottle. I'd trust the power palette before the squares in the store. 

 

Brick Red is a very dark purple-red. Probably the tongues on that picture. 

Pale Violet Red is a very vivid pink, leaning red. It is atrociously named (violet is between blue and purple, not adjacent to red). 

Violet Red is also terribly named, and is a vivid red-pink, good mid-tone. 

Clear Magenta is aptly named, sortof. It is bright magenta, but you'd use it to perk up areas and brighten them. It isn't really clear, as much as that it isn't a base coat. 

 

Not sure on Blush pink.

Interesting. I do have clear magenta. Don't have any of the others. I'll make a note of that.

I adore the Red Brick color. It is just useful in general. I think I use it in nearly every skintone I paint (very thinned).

      I'm taking the leap and about to buy my first airbrush for mini painting and was hoping I could get some advice on what to buy. The Airbrushing: compendium has been very helpful and I've spent hours, days, what feels like years researching and I want to pull the trigger... I live in Canada and after ringing around some hobbyshops etc it seems amazon is the best bang for my buck. I have paint and access to a Campbell Hausfeld 2 Gallon Air Compressor (I will purchase another compressor in a few months once I have some more disposable income). My main concerns are does this compressor work with the airbrush listed below, do I need anything else? Heres what I've got in mind:   NEO CN GRAVITY-FEED DUAL-ACTION AIRBRUSH $97.20 CAD Paasche 10-foot Nylon Braided Hose $18 CAD Airbrush Cleaner 4 Kit, Washing Tools - Glass Cleaning Pot etc $22 CAD Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner 85ml $7 CAD   any advice would be appreciated

      Okay, here's the situation; my parents went away on a week's vacation, and now that you're rapping Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff to yourself (you are, right?), here's the real situation:
       
      I'm looking for a thing to represent a mounted Undead lord, the base size needs to be 75mm square (so fairly large), and it needs to occupy most of that space (or need minimal assistance from clever basing to look like it belongs on said base, at least). This precludes standard cavalry, obviously. It also needs to be wingless (or easily converted to wingless), as Wings would only serve to confuse my opponents in game (Kings of War). 
       
      I'm open to any material, any manufacturer, though Reaper is strongly preferred. I'm thinking of also doing a non-traditional mount pose, like the Ghost King standing on the mounts back or shoulder or whatever, or even better, the Male Revenant from Bones 2.
       
      My first thought was to take one of the two Grave Golems I have and use that (without the gate wings), but that would really be stretching the empty space on the base to the max, as it's probably better suited for a 40mm square or 50mm square base at max. Of course, I could always fill the base with tombstones and skulls and stuff and build it up to the center, but I'd like to avoid that. The in-game creature is substantial and I'd like the mini to represent the size well.
       
      My next thought was I could do something like @Girot did for the Bone Horror (3rd picture in the store), which he nixed the wings from, and I think it looks fine. The problem here is the monster itself is pretty substantially threatening without a rider and doesn't really look like a mount. I'm not sure where I would put one (I could put a traditional saddled mount on it I guess, but I'm iffy on this idea). The main issue I have pulling the trigger on this beastie though is size, I'm not seeing Bryangles on the store pics, and having a hard time finding other scale shots with this guy in it. I see on his Deviant Art page, Girot says he used a 60mm round, do you think an extra 15mm each side would be too much? Especially because that's all in one dimension? The rest of the base will need a lot of doctoring to make up for the emptiness. 
       
      Any other ideas?

      So, trying to figure out what I'm doing for reapercon. I've lost my vallejo leather instructions in my move, so I'm not super comfortable with where I'm at painting new leather and wood. 
       
      I have a few miniatures started that I could touch up/finish, or I could start a different new miniature...
       
      Here are the ones I'm currently considering:


      1. Oathsworn Tiefling
      I really think she has the best face I've ever painted, and I'm really happy about what I achieved in her purple sash. But the rest of her, I'm a bit iffy on. 
       


      2. Reaper Bryn Half-Elf Rogue
      So, I'm really proud of her leathers (before I lost my directions) and her sleeves, but she has on of the worst faces I've done recently, due to the more narrow shape of her face. Her hair also leaves a lot to be desired. I also am worried about being able to finish those remaining leathers as well as the first several.
       


      3. Reaper Ametrine, Gnome Alchemist
      She's my most recent mini, and my first attempt at trying to figure out the leather on my own as well as my first attempt at painting potion bottles. I'm really happy about her hair, and her face is decent, even if it isn't my best.
       
      I'd love to here opinions about where one(s) to choose, and advice on how to potentially improve them.

      Hey guys. I'm back after having my wisdom teeth removed :/ nasty surgery had to have some recovery. But I started painting again and I was wondering; am I getting speckling here? It used to be really bad but I diluted down a touch and I think it's better. Could use some help.

      Hello, compatriots! I am a college student in desperate need of useful sources of information! I have taken upon the task of writing my final project in my composition class on the history of wargaming and tabletop miniatures. Painting miniatures is potentially my biggest hobby, and it seemed like an excellent topic for a paper. I need to do a 12-minute elevator pitch of my paper next Friday, and the paper itself must be 2,500 words and is due at the end of the semester (May 5th).
       
      The issue is, I'm having difficulty finding sources that I can cite. I'd go hunting for books, but I don't have a whole ton of time to wait for shipping. So, I've come to you folks. If there are any sources that you are aware of that will help me in my journey, please post them here. If there are important people I could potentially email and ask questions of, that would be cool, too. I already have some info with W. Britain beginning production of hollow lead toy soldiers and the publication of H.G. Welles' "Little Wars". I'd like to know more about when and how painting miniatures for wargames became a hobby of its own, major changes in the miniature manufacturing industry, key players, where we are today, etc.
