Taking it a step further: The importance of highlighting

Its about time i started working on my chaos again. Ive been playing necrons and have a whole fully painted army but ill save that for another time since this blog is dedicated to chaos. I learnde so many techniques and have made some cool looking models that some people have loved and hate, but i want to finish this army. I want them to collectively become something that i can be proud of and it wouldnt hurt to win a few "best painted"s here or there. So im starting from scratch. i want all my models to be of the same quality as the fig below. Ive learned that with painting red, orange is your best friend. It catches the eye, especially when on top of a dark red color. With this guy i used mechrite red with a badab black wash and blazing orange highlights. I think he came out suprisingly good. Of course when i paint the face it should come together

And my rhinos are going to be themed by each individual god. 4 rhinos, 4 gods. If anyone has checked out my blog a while back i talked about doing this. Its a chaos undivided army so it should work. To represent a god for each rhino. Im painting these goofy deamons on every one of them. It goes as follows:

Nurgle (painted by BCJ)

Tzeench (painted by me)

Slaanesh (painted by BCJ)

Khorne (i cant figure out how i want to paint this one. Maybe a skeleton or a bloodletter i dont know. Any ideas?)

An this is just an example of how im doing weathering and highlighting on the rhinos as well as painting the lenses on the top hatch. I dont want to miss any details!
Thats it for now, this is just the first part of my journey to making a top notch army.
Stay tuned
