Vladimir, the Dark Champion

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.
