OK so I need to paint Corbulo's shoulder pad red. I could simply break out a brush and crack on but that would be far too easy :) So instead the shoulder pad is carefully masked off and the area primed with Vallejo Air Grey Primer, not the new polyurethane primer this is the standard darker grey primer. Although I have moved over to the Vallejo polyurethane primers for most work now, my Blood Angels army was already in progress before I discovered the new primers so I am keeping continuity with them.
OK masked the area.
Next is the colour detail, the pad was filled with VGC Bloody Red, then a shadow along the base of VGC Bloody Red and Dark Fleshtone and a highlight along the top of Bloody Red and Hot Orange.
Then finally, carefully remove the masking tape.
Et Viola, one red shoulder pad. Next up will be face detail.
