Horus Heresy 30k and Thousand Sons #4

I made some test  paint jobs  to see how a metallic red scheme would look. Vallejo Game Air Steel base coat with a few layers of Minitaire Ghost Tint Blood Red. Now A few things have to be said about the Ghost Tints, you have to turn the air pressure on the compressor down a  bit and do multiple coats.

Ghost Tint does give the test pieces a relatively worn and non-uniform look. The silver shines through as the automatic highlights.  

There is one issue though, because I painted the Ghost Tint as a zenithal highlight, the underneath angles are pure silver. I am guessing I will have to come back and shade wash then undersides, when it comes to shading and gold trim and highlights.

More to come.
