1) Model is primed black. 2) A thin coat of Khorne Red is applied to the skin parts. 3) Skin is overbrushed with Elysian Green but you can still see red in the recesses. 4) Nurgling Green is drybrushed over the previous coat.
5) 1:1 mix of Ushabti Bone/Nurgling Green is drybrush highlighted on the skin. 6) An equal mix of Biel-Tan Green, Water and Glazing Medium is washed onto the skin. 7) The tentacles and sacs are drybrushed with Cadian Fleshtone and then Ushabti Bone. (note that this is how I do the wings on my flying creatures except I only highlight with Ushabti Bone so that far more flesh tone is showing) 8) Equal mix of Reikland Fleshshade/Water/Glazing Medium is washed onto the tentacles and sacs.
9) Carapace parts are tidied up with Abaddon Black, then lines of thinned Khorne Red are applied to all edges with a detail brush. 10) Evil Sunz Scarlet is painted, slightly thinner on top of the Khorne Red staying carefully in the lines. 11) An even thinner stripe of Tau Light Ochre is applied over the red (I much preferred it when this colour was called Vomit Brown). 12) A 2:1:1 mix of Glazing Medium/Carroburg Crimson/Water is washed over the carapace, trying to get a sheen, like chitin.
13) Rhinox Hide is painted in stripes over the talons/spikes/pincers. 14) XV-88 is striped over the Rhinox hide (similar to the way the carapace is done). Eyeballs painted Khorne Red. 15) Tau Light Ochre is striped over the XV-88. Eyeballs highlighted with Troll Slayer Orange. 17) A 2:1:1 mix of Glazing Medium/Reikland Fleshshade/Water is washed over the talons/spikes/pincers. High Gloss varnish applied to tentacles and sacs (I don't normally do this but I wanted it to look really slimy).
I have no idea what happened to step 16). It may have been consumed by Rippers. Or perhaps the Chaos Gods reserved it because I was using two many eights.
The rubble was drybrushed Thunderhawk Blue, The plating Tin Bitz. Brass Scorpion was used to highlight the Tin Bitz. Then everything drybrushed Codex Grey except the edge of the plating; then Celestra Grey. The 'water' was painted Caliban Green and heavily varnished. Finally, Nurgle's Rot was smeared over it.
