Painted Deimos Rhino
Finishing the Deimos was pretty easy. A couple of brass etched Ultramarines symbols were added to the kit for detail. Then on to painting. I did make a few messy mistakes with the white, but I think that was easy to fix. Overall, I decided to avoid gold in the color scheme, and stick with blue, white, silver and black.
The blue was done with a base coat of GW Regal Blue, followed by a coat of Ultramarine Blue. Then a 50:50 mix of Ultramarine Blue and Ice Blue was done with a sort of controlled dry brush technique to add highlights. Finally I applied an extreme highlight of Ice Blue.
The white was just a couple coats of straight up P3 Morrow White, and the black was done with just GW Chaos Black. The silver was done with a coat of Boltgun Metal, then Devlan Mud and finally Chainmail. The lights were done with coats of P3 Sulfuric Yellow, then GW Golden Yellow and lastly P3 Cygnus Yellow. Finally, the red was done with P3 Sanguine Highlight, Khador Base and a dot of Khador Highlight.
