Painting has begun on my unit of Pathfinders. Here you can see an almost finished test model.
I undercoated dark areas with a 3:1 mix of VGC (Vallejo Game Color) Falcon Turquoise and VGC Chaos Black. For the armor I used VGC Falcon Turquoise and for the cloth and rifle barrel VGC Dead White. The 'leather' areas I'm doing with a Khemri Brown undercoat followed by a VGC Khaki overcoat. Finally I did VGC Gory Red for the gems' undercoat. Highlights are up next.
I went through one other iteration of the scheme before I settled on this one. Rather satisfied with the result and will be doing the entire unit like this.
