Deadzone – Rebs Zees Finished!

Another couple of additions to m Rebs force. Think these guys would come in handy in a campaign…


To Finish them off I needed to paint the flesh, leather and red bits, and here’s how I did those:

Flesh: The flesh was finished by adding a small amount of Rakkarth Flesh to Mechanicus standard Grey, and layering it on as it gets progressively lighter but using smaller amounts each time, focused on the edges.

Eyes: I started these off with a coat of Genestealer Purple

3:1 Genestealer Purple and Menoth White Highlight was added and painted on but leaving the edges of the eye the original colour

1:1 Genestealer Purple and Menoth White Highlight is added and painted only in the centre of the eyes

Leather: Over the Dryad Bark base I added two highlights

The first is 2:1 Dryad bark and Ushabti Bone

The second 1:1 Dryad bark and Ushabti Bone

Reds: Over the Khorne Red base:

Layer of Mephiston Red leaving the recesses the original colour

Highlight of Evil Sun Scarlet

Highlight of 1:1 Evil Sun Scarlet and Tau Light Ochre

and finally a wash of Bloodletter


The only other thing I had to paint was the base and here are the stages I went through:

A basecoat of Mechanicus Standard Grey over the whole thing

Drybrush of Codex Grey

Drybrush of Fortress Grey

Light Drybrush of Terminatus Stone

Wash of 5:1 water and Dryad Bark

And thats the basics of how I’ve painted my Rebs. The only bits that tend to differ are the flesh as they’re otherwise quite uniformed. But I’m planning on covering some other species once I get them done 🙂
