Due to my previous poor choice in undercoating, I wanted to make sure I kept the layers thin. To this end I used a base coat of evil suns red watered down. 3 coats (the final one really just picking out the bits I missed) seemed to do the trick. The final of the 3 coats I used, I really watered down (2 parts water to 1 part paint) because I found the paint did not sit into all the very tiny recesses in these models, maybe the undercoat was coming back to haunt me .. not sure. But either way I had good coverage of the red I wanted.

Why did I choose evil suns red?

  1. I like that red 🙂
  2. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
  3. I am not always a fan of painting the exact GW tones – My Stormcast are much more Bronze than their bright gold because I like the weight it adds to the models.
  4. For re-application after wash I always like to go … a barely noticeable tone up and I have Army Painter Pure red which (to my eye at least) looks just a touch lighter. (Giving away upcoming steps :/ )
