Making the chaos sorcerer into Skeletor :)

Postby alyndavies » Saturday July 11th, 2015 4:32pm

I've seen some of the photos people have submitted and a few people have made their chaos sorcerer into Skeletor from He-Man, I think that's totally brilliant. Can anyone tell me what colors and paints are used for this. As I'd love to do this myself.

Ha! One of those is mine :D
I can't honestly remember which paints I used, but you can kinda tell from the image. I used blues and pruples, mixed them with a little white for highlighting. I think I highlighted twice at least. Yellow for the face, metallics for the metal bits, and I think I did a thin Quickshade layer on it. I have the Strong tone, but sometimes I don't shake the tin, or shake it very lightly, and then apply it. Less shading that way, but very good paint protection.
Finally 3 thin coats of matte varnish spray (army painter anti-shine).

Those are pretty sweet. I keep saying it, but I wish I could paint.
