While searching for inspiration for my pink pallet for pink
horrors which I am currently working on for one of my commissions, I came
across Slaanesh bikers that I have done earlier this year. This was my take on
the pink theme. It’s kind of muddy pink, as I was trying not to be too obvious
with the usual brighter pink. I think when it will come to the pink horrors I
will try to keep it muddy as well, but lighter, more fleshy pink. What do you
guys think? How do you interpret the slaanesh colours?
Fluff-wise speaking bright colors are there to stimulate Slaanesh followers – everything except most bright and saturated colors is dull to them. So… fluffwise, they are not very Slaanesh IMHO. But they are excellent models 🙂
Maybe it's how the Slaaneshi see their own bikes?
Awesome as always.
Hey thanks all :). I think they are nice, but I kind of understand that the colour isn't a 100% accurate. I think they could also pass as Nurgle at a push 🙂

The boldness of the colour is the point, the colour itself is secondary. Slaanesh would be dissapointed.
I find the choice of colour fascinating. I've never seen such a colour choice before for Slaanesh. That's really cool, because most tings have been done to death in the hobby. Pushing the boundries like this is commendable. I like them.
Not a fan of the color, but it's still good painting. And hey, where's Doomrider!?
Ha Ha, I just looked up Doomrider as I'm not familiar with the model. He reminds me of Ghost Rider 🙂
Slaanesh was never officially about pink, it was about "garish colors". Also you talk about pink horrors but they are not slaanesh…

They look great, but to be honest i thought there was a mistake in the title of your post when i saw Slanesh. For me they look much more Nurgle than Slanesh, with the head of their leader and their brownish/dirty look. For them to look Slanesh, i think brighter/saturated colors should be used. But as i said, great models nonetheless !
