Hey all, today I thought I’d show the beginnings of another Forge World Kytan Engine that I’m painting up.
Its quite nice having a second chance to paint it as I want to change a few small things that I did with the original one I showed a few months ago. For one I wanted to make the model a little brighter. For this version I am primarily using Com Art colours, whereas on the original one I painted I used mainly Vallejo. I’m coming to really like Com Art paints the more I use them. They are a bit odd to work with at the beginning as they are very translucent. But I have found that because of this you can do many tricks to make things look eye catching. What do you guys think so far?
In a pretty similar way yes.
Can't wait to see this finished.
Well I hope it turns out okay 🙂

Looking Great! In my opinion, this looks better than the GW stock Lord of Skulls, and is cheaper (points and £ wise). Can you do the Chaos Knight next? I was looking at getting one of those, and it would be great to see how one would be painted!
To be frank I'm more interested in that Zhufor in the background. Ha!
Which com- art colours are you using for the red? Do you bother using the trans colours? I find that the opaque colours are pretty translucent.
it would have been in this order on a black primer: opaque violet, vermillion, touloune red and then dinitir orange. Yeah the opaque colours are pretty translucent. I have though used a few of the trans colours a while ago for the Necrosphinx I did.
Violet hey, can you explain why you would do that? i'm interested 🙂

I think it looks good so far, are you painting the red the same way you did the violet on the emperors children terminators?
