Thousand Sons Daemon Prince colour

Post by Arkrove » Tue Nov 25, 2014 2:20 am

Hey there guys. I am having trouble figuring out what colour my Daemon Prince's skin is going to be. The purple skin seems too similar to the Blue on my Thousand Son's armour and I believe it won't look that good. I like to see your suggestions and to see some skin you have done on your own Daemon Princes. Thanks

Have you considered going with a white / very light blue skin?

Personnally, my Thousand Sons Daemon Prince of Tzeentch has his skin somewhere between skyblue and royal blue, while the power armor is royal blue with details in tarnished gold. I agree that's a lot of blue, but I thought this to be fluffy. It's unfinished for the time being so I don't have photos. If you don't want to have both the armor and the skin blue, an idea would be to paint the power armor in gold. It's quite flashy. I wouldn't go for a purple skin because I think it would make it look like a Daemon Prince of Slaanesh. Epick Duck Mike's suggestions could look cool too.

No I haven't thought of that before. Although White may seem like a good idea I'm really liking the very light blue skin a little bit more and I think I might go with that idea. Thank you and Kovlosky for your suggestions.

I did mine in red (mechrite red base).

It looks really nice with the blue power armour around it.

I would suggest red as well, I mean the thousand sons primarch is even called Magnus the Red and has red skin.(in the newer artwork anyway)

Ah that's something that I didn't thought of. I think he was always with a red skin, but in older incarnations, he was really a cyclop and not just having lost an eye.

Here, I have photos of my unfinished Thousand Sons Daemon Prince. The flesh and the wings are mostly finished, but the armor isn't. I have no artistic talent so it's my friend who is painting it and he has a lot of skill (I buy him the paint and also gave him the Dark Angel half of my Dark Vengence box to thanks him since he plays Dark Angels). I think it will look great when the armor will be finished. I think only the first layer has been done. I hope the links will work, I don't use google drive much.

That might be a very good idea however I have already begun on the very light blue skin Epic Duck Mike suggested. In the future when I get another Daemon Prince I might do some red skin instead.

And in regards to Magnus, yes he has red skin as a Daemon Prince but a common misconception many people have is that they think he had red skin before he turned into a Daemon Prince but in fact he is described to have bronzed skin (as described in novels). Just thought I would put that out there :P

Looking forward to seeing the light-blue toned skin. Just an FYI, you can highlight light blue with pure white quite effectively, and overall it'll retain a blue appearance :)

Thank you very much for the tip. Once I have finished painting it up I will post a picture on here.
