I know I discussed a Protectorate of Menoth test scheme a while back, but it just didn’t turn out how I wanted. I recently saw someone who was painting the studio scheme over black primer, and was only about half finished, and I really liked the big chunk of black he had with the white and maroon of the studio scheme.
Obviously this isn’t a fully painted model – the skin is wrong, ad the black gloves and the Menofix aren’t highlighted, but I like the layout and the colors.
Oddly, the green in the coal black of the robe highlights doesn’t really come through in the highlights, but that’s OK. I’m really happy with how the black turned out too. I used the tutorial in the Forces of Hordes: Skorne book (Thanks Gary!), and then I hit it with GW’s new black wash, or “shade”, Nuln Oil.
I wanted to capture the dark side of the Protectorate…
What do you think of the scheme?
