MCP – Omega Red Painting Guide

Welcome to my latest painting guide! Omega Red hits the painting table. A fairly chunky model with some cool but very flexible tentacles.


I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!

  2. Quick question on Stage One with the armour and tentacles, I based with leadbelcher but it seems a lot darker than in the images not sure if I need to layer more but just wondered if perhaps was mistake and a different colour? (guess could always be my leadbelcher has gone funny) Also what colour did you use for the teeth and eyes please? Thanks

    • If your leadbelcher is a flat even colour it will be fine. Maybe the lighting for my picture has thrown off the colour a bit or sometimes it can even be the screen you’re using. I’ve noticed inconsistinies across the screens I use in lighting and saturation.
      The eyes I painted with Abaddon Black and the teeth were a coat of Pallid Wych Flesh followed by a spot of White Scar.
