Shading the Razorback

One model I got many years ago, well in 2006, was a Forgeworld Razorback the one with the much bigger turret, which I much prefer over the plastic kit version that you could get in the shops back then. I recently retrieved it from storage and decided that I would try and finish painting it. I was using Tausept Ochre as the base coat, however having liked the paint scheme I was using on my Deimos-pattern Rhino, I decided that I would paint the Razorback in the same scheme.

Having sprayed the underneath of the model with Citadel Zandri Dust. I gave the model a basecoat of Army Painter Daemonic Yellow. This was followed with Leadbelcher for painting the exhausts and weaponry. The next step was painting the iconography and purity seals.

So, there I was ready to shade my Razorback in the same way as my Deimos-pattern Rhino. I did bring up my painting guide on the website. Even so I completely misread what I had done! Instead of using Citadel Reikland Fleshshade Shade I used Seraphim Sepia Shade.

Thought I had used Seraphim Sepia Shade on the Rhino, the primary and first shade was in fact Reikland Fleshshade.

It seemed to be okay.

However it wasn’t quite the same look as the Rhino. So I got out the Reikland Fleshshade.

This again wasn’t quite right, so I did some more shading.

I think the next stages of drybrushing will help soften the effect of the shading.
