Betrayal at Calth: Emperor's Children paint test

Today was a painting day: I've finally had time to paint a couple of test models for my pre-heresy Emperor's Children

Inspired from the illustration in the first Horus Heresy book, Betrayal, I wanted to get a metallic purple armor instead of the standard opaque version from Forge World

I'm not 100% sold on the steel helmet: I'll probably go with a metallic purple helmet with a golden mask

  1. A great color that metallic purple ! What color is it ? Or did you make it yourself ? I would keep the silver helmet with the gold and add some small details in the metallic purple. Great work !

    1. Thank you! It's a combination of colors, thinned druchi violet airbrushed over Alclad II Chrome, witch I've sprayed in a zenithal way over a glossy black primer, leaving some of the black in the recessed areas
