Imagine , if you will, a negative of this scheme. The White ceramite would be irridescent black/green- like on a fly carapace. The green and dark ceramite would be bone/dirty white, the metal trim- rusted Iron. So that's the plan. Test marine to follow.
Exhibit 2: A bit of carapace fun with our buddy the Fleshmower and Colorshift paints from Greenstuff World.
Looking at it straight on, it just looks like black-ish. Turn it in the light and the magic happens.
A little bit closer with more intense light....
The plan for damaged areas is a brown based scar. Sort of like the scratches on this old boy....
It'll be weathered and dirty. Suitably, nurgly. But... finally, I'm excited about a scheme with these guys, especially since the bulk of my hobby related time this last month has been spent stripping miniatures.
