#Monsterpocalypse – Quantum Rakadon

After posting some of my custom Planet Eaters over at Teamcovenant I was asked about doing a commission, this time of a Terrasaur variety. Not being one to turn down a challenge I was soon ready to paint up a Quantum Rakadon! Take note that it was loosely based on the actual quantum’s scheme.

I tried something different when painting Quantum Rak. The green I had done before with my Dark Angels although in this case I brightened it up a bit with some Goblin Green to add depth to the skin. The armor plates I initially tried to paint Liche Purple to Warlock Purple but didn’t like the results. I instead tried some paint in the new GW line, Slannesh Grey.

I did prime 3 of these guys and am going to try slightly different techniques on each one. I’m planning on trying to do a full green/metal technique reminiscent of Quantum Zorog. The third will be similar colours to the first, except trying to do dark to light horizontal purple highlighting along the armor plates. More Quantums to come!
