I am at last beginning to get my act together and get on with my new cadre. The background idea is Black Ops, with the cadre being called "Y'aun't'mon", or "The Shades of Death". The cadre therefore is not being painted in a bright set of colours, and is rendered thus so far:
Mr Fire Warrior.
Mr Fire Warrior's shoulder pad:
Please remember that this is a trial model and has not been completely finished paint-wise.
The basecoat is Rotting Flesh with an undiluted coat of Badab Black wash all over, followed by 3 coats of Devlan Mud (again undiluted). The gaiters, gauntlets and straps are a Vallejo German medium brown, with Badab Black wash x2. The green sections are Scaly Green with again Badab Black wash.
My problem is: what colour to do the Tau symbol on the shoulder pad? Yes - that's all I'm asking help for! I know what I'm doing with the rest of the model, but sept markings and that symbol are annoying me.
Please remember that this cadre is Black Ops, so they will not be drawing attention to themselves (hence the muting of the Scaly Green sections).
Thanks for any input.
Edit: Darn it, I just hate close-ups. There's a tiny speck of Scaly green on his flippin' helmet!
