I'm about to start painting my Protectorate of Menoth army and I think I'd like to use a mostly black theme, with white, gold and (very little) red trim. Has anyone out there tried a similar scheme? And if you do, do you have pictures? I'd love to see how they turned out.
This will be my first mostly black army, and I'm a little worried about highlighting the black. If you've done black before, do you have any suggestions? Right now, my plan is to start with a black base coat, then use zenithal airbrushing to highlight it with a charcoal/black mix. In theory, that should give me a nice blue-black base. Or I could start with black and highlight it with a grey/lack mix (for neutral highlights) or a cryx bane base/black mix (for a slightly warmer tint). Again, if you have experience with this, I would love to hear some suggestions.
