Lord Inquisitor Kyra Draxus (Part 2)

 Progress continues on Lord Inquisitor Kyra Draxus. Or my interpretation of her anyway. 

The black armor she wears was painted using Abaddon Black.. I am either going to paint her like the example GW uses on the packaging or using the scheme I use on my Dark Eldar. Either way,  I feel like her armor is based off of the Dark Eldar's  design, so I feel that's the direction to go in. I painted her Mohawk using a Magenta Ink that I have had since the '00s. It was a flip-tip lid and amazingly it hasn't dried up. Anyway, I thinned it out a bit and used it like a Contrast Paint to get the effect I wanted. Actually most of this model was painted in Contrast Paint ad this stage. The bones, including the wraithbone of the Shurikan Catapult, was painted using a Contrast Paint called Skeleton Horde. I absolutely LOVE this color! 

The dark areas of the cloak was painted using a thinned Dark Reaper. Then the whole cloak was washed with Space Wolves Grey Contrast Paint. It was an interesting look, but it's not quite how I wanted it to turn out, so I will be doing a bit more to work on this in the middle coat stage. 

The lil' dragon was painted using a Militarum Green and Warp Lightning Contrast Paints. It's an interesting effect so far. 

Progress shall continue soon!
