It was a good week & I had time to paint my Mechanicus.
Converted one dominus as I had 2.

Simple table top ready scheme.
Black undercoat
Gunmetal drybrush.
Warplock bronze on some detail.
Red cloak.
Ivory lines.
Wash with mix of agrax earthshade + burnt umber.
Went over with base colours, except gunmetal.
Glowing stuff made a mix of GW oxide + hexwraith glow + vallejo florescent yellow. Then some shades of blue.

Base done with a mix of red/brown dried paint + some ivory on a Talons crackle medium base. Very simple, quick & effective way to do desert bases.

Thanks for your comments

Looking good!

You really should give the GW basing textures a try, they are so easy to use. Though the only one I consider a 'must' is Valhallan Blizzard, which is the absolutely easiest (one-pot) snow effect I have ever tried.
