|Thirty greenskins ready to be sent to their doom.|
If they know what's good for them.

|Yeah, like that.|
|Stage 1: Basecoat With Vallejo Flourescent Orange / Army Painter Lava Orange|
This mix was partly to lessen the neon glow but also because the Fluorescent Paint is quite thick, so it would flow better this way.
|Stage 2: Wash With Vallejo Flourescent Orange / Citadel Yriel Yellow|
I did this wash rough and ready in the morning and then went out for a couple of hours. On my return I could basically do every other step which was just progressively darker and lighter drybrushes.
|Step 3: Highlight Heavilly With Citadel Mephiston Read|
|Step 4: Highlight Heavilly With Coat d'Arms Rust|
|Step 5: Highlight With Coat D'Arms Shadow Grey/Army Painter Black. Paint Base Adeptus Battlegrey|
The base gets the usual coating of Adeptus Battlegrey. For the top layer of the magma I originally was going to use Shadow Grey from Coat D'Arms but it was too light - mixed fairly evenly with Army Painter Black, I got it down to the dark bluey-grey hue I wanted for cooled magma.
Although the grey ended up overpowering the shades of red and brown, there is still some gradation of colour left and the whole things have quite a nice, natural shade as opposed to if I'd just gone for grey straight over the bright orange.
