Painting: Genestealer cult: Neophytes Hybrids

I wanted to paint my Neophytes in a similar scheme to that shown by GW's Duncan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpeAnC1UnaE&t=350s

As ever the colours used were mainly Vallejo game colour unless stated otherwise

So I started by undercoating the models in Halfords Grey primer
Then I painted the cloth with Orange Fire  (72.008). Next I painted the boots, ammo pouches, gun grip and pistol holder with GW Black. I also painted the trousers with Model color: Tan earth (Model color 70.874)
Next I painted the light with Magic blue (72.021), then the grenade shaft with cam. Olive green (Model colour 70.894)

Next I painted the grenade fuse, boot clips, metal pads on gloves, gun barrel & magazine Gunmetal: (72.054).
Then I liberally applied AP strong tone all over except the areas of flesh. While the AP dried I carefully painted the flesh for the 4th Generation Neophytes with Tan (72.066), then washed with Purple tone, once that dried I carefully used Dwarf skin (72.041), then Elf skintone (72.004) and finally for the raised areas i used Pale flesh highlight (72.003)
For 3rd generation I used GW Daemonette Hide, then AP purple wash, then highlighted with GW Slaanesh Grey.

Next I highlighted the armour with Stonewall Grey (72.049), going around the edges and carefully going over the armour ridges, as well as a careful highlight on the black areas. I then highlighted the creases in the trousers with Khaki

I painted the GC icons with Bronze (72.057), then applied several coats of AP red tone, waiting for the first to dry before applying the next.

Once the painting was done I used a flathead screwdriver to scoop, and smear GW astrogranite debris over the base. once dry I covered in AP dark tone, then when that dried drybrushed with Stonewall grey, i then painted the rim of the base black.
