Dark Imperium - Painting Bugs
One of the new things to paint on these detail packed models is bugs.
In the previous Dark Vengeance set the models were also jammed full of details including loads of demon faces etc projecting from the body and I made a passable job of painting them but I don't recall any bugs in that set.
Needless to say I couldn't (there probably are) find any tutorials on painting bugs and had to rely on the looking at pictures on the web of this specific model with the bug on its shoulder for reference.
I started with a base colour of Bone for the body and legs and White for the wings, when that was dry I washed the body with Blue, applying several layers to build up the detail around the warts etc on the detail. The legs were washed with Flesh Wash following the same method.
