Hey there, here is my next project: a box of Myrmourn Banshees, which became a warband in in the Warhammer Underworlds Dreadfane boxed set.
Coming up with a paint scheme for the Banshees was pretty difficult. I knew I wanted a similar fast and effective approach as my Chainrasps (which were inspired by Tyler Mengel’s fantastic Nighthaunts collection), but purple instead of green. I experimented with several mixes of Contrast Medium, Lahmian Medium, Magos Purple and Warpaints Purple Tone Ink over Corax White primer, but it all looked very patchy and uneven. I had to strip them all and start anew. In the end, I went for a zenithal highlight approach, with some additional purple glazes and a white drybrush. The corset and base details were alle basecoated with contrast paints plus additional highlights.
What do you think?

Very nice & subtle Purple glazing…
for my Tyranids i also experimented with Purple-Glazes & had very good results with the following recipe:
Vallejo Violet Ink + Lahmian Medium + Vallejo Glaze Medium (1:2:1)
when needed, i put on a second coat with (1:2:2) ratio.
I had better results (no staining) by mixing the Vallejo Inks with Lahmian and Glaze Medium instead of using just one of them to dilute the Ink.

I love the cool shade of lilac/purple. A nice complement to your nightrasps.
