So I've finally got round to painting up some of the stuff I got from Scotia Grendel!
Here's the Lava Pools. They were fun to paint and I'm rather pleased with how they turned out.
For the rock I wanted a distinct 'volcanic' look, so I used dark greys (mainly Adeptus Battlegrey and Codex Grey with a little Chaos Black Mixed in) with a wash of Devlan Mud and the more gravel-y looking bits were given a light dry-brush with a few browns to pick them out.
The rock crystals were given a base coat of Storm Blue and highlighted up through Festering Blue, Enchanted Blue and Ice Blue up to a 50/50 mix of Ice Blue and Skull White along the edges.
I built the lava colour up from Mechrite Red through Blood Angels Red up to Firey Orange, then I gave it a wash of water-down Orange Ink and a final highlight of Firey Orange. While I was doing the final few layers I gave the rock around the lava a highlight with the same colours to give a glowing effect. Finally the rock crystals were given 2 coats of Gloss Varnish.
