I’ve been wanting to paint Vlad2 for a while, and was surprised by how fast I managed to finish him once I finally got started. (you know, instead of painting Satyxis, like I’m supposed to).
I started out by painting him with GW Blood Angel Red Contrast paint. I then painted the details, and finally some orange highlighting. The single coat of Blood Angel Red is very similar to Khador Red Base – I used that color to clean up some of the places where the paint had pooled in the wrong areas. He comes with that nicely sculpted base. I just used some desaturated blues and brownish greys. The lipped base is also Blood Angel Red through an airbrush – a few too many layers though, so it’s more of a crimson.
