...when you wish you'd picked a different colour scheme for figures?
No problem with the booster pack for the Valkyries in primary team colours - the AP (well, AP made for Maelstrom) purple spray is great, the only real issue is remembering to undercoat the areas that need to be yellow (which doesn't cover well) in white.
The secondary colours, on the other hand...
Undercoat - AP white. No problem.
Next step - wash. Unfortunately,using straight AP Soft Tone just produces a muddy pale brown, which would work perfectly for mediaevals or ancients, but not for the bright environment of Dreadball.
At the second attempt, I managed to fake out a wash using the AP purple, very dilute - works fine in the shadows, but leaves the rest a very faint pink. So out with the white again, and a fairly heavy dry brushing to restore the purity of the white while still preserving the shadow detail.
On to the trim, in yellow and purple....
Which is the point at which I discover that the AP purple is pathetically thin, and not the same shade as the spray after all, but considerably paler.
More later in the week, I think, as I need to do some colour matching work (and repaint at least one of the figures back to white....)
