An experiment with metallic paint.  Not sure I like how he came out, but the players sure won't miss their perception checks for that red armor.  Chopped up his cloak a bit trying to get him on a sculpted base, and the color washed out a bit in the flash.

That’s cool!  The red armor and shield look great!

 

Is that a silver metallic paint with red clear over it?  Which paints did you use?  I’ve been wanting to try doing an enameled armor effect like this.

Like I said, it was an experiment. IIRC I  did a base of silver craft metallic, followed by Turbo Dork "Ground is Lava", which turned him pink.  It was really nice but not the look I wanted.  Put down some red ink.... Army Painter red I think.  Better, but still not great.  Then I tried Citadel Contrast in "Blood Angel red" and I used it UNSHAKEN.  I just wanted the watery inky part on top, not the combined paint mixture. Worked a charm.   Did all the gold with craft paint, and some very light silver highlights.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the third and last of the 06143, Tomb Guards sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is the metal version from the Nefsokar Warlord Army Packs. I kept my favorite of the three for last.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the first of 06143, Tomb Guards sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is the metal version from the Nefsokar Warlord Army Packs.
      I recently painted the three mummies from the pack and will post them on the forum this week. I really enjoyed their big Khopesh and the detail on there shields.

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is the second skeletal beast I painted last week. This is Bones model 77924, Skeletal Chimera sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added dirt and moss on it to make it look like it's freshly animated. The leaves are dry birch tree seed hulls. I picked them up in the forest and painted them before gluing them on the base. As a reference, the base is 2 inches wide.
