Cult Mechanicus Painting Project

After last weeks visit to Warhammer World and the visit to the exhibition halls I had found my inspiration for my army.

This is the Questoris Knight Styrix by Forge World painted by Mark Bedford. I just loved the gloss red armour that he achieved.
So chatting with Matt Parkes (great to work in the same building as multi Golden Daemon winner, he shared some pearls of wisdom and armed with this off I went to web to make my purchases.
Tamiya Clear Red:- Base Colour
Tamiya Clear Orange:- Highlighting
Tamiya Clear Blue:- Shading
Tamiya Clear:- Seal between layers
Tamiya Thinners:- To thin the paints water will not work
Tamiya Clear spray varnish: In between coats
So after the first night I am sitting with metal shaded model and waiting for the gloss varnish to dry. I have a feeling that this is going to be a long process. But I will try and share the highs and lows of the journey
