Just followed the gw vid on you tube to get it battle ready but thinking of doing a bit of colour on the Cape and sword handle thinking something like a khorn red with a agrax earthshade wash maybe to add a bit of a highlight. I am about stuck with the brown I used for the cloak as I mixed it from mournfang brown and abbadon black so will never be able to get the same shade again.
Have they released a video for the next tier? I forget what they call it, but I know they have follow-up steps for a lot of their schemes.
Out of interest what colour is the armour? If it's actually black then you might find it difficult to shade, so you would have to rely on highlights to give it any depth.
For the robes there's plenty of brown shades in the VMC range - if you'd like I'll have a quick look tomorrow and see which might work for you? Don't forget that the top half is there too - it looks in the photos like you might have left the upper half black.
I've seen plenty of people that have used the visible bits of the inside to add contrasting colours (mostly white or cream, admittedly). I'll find you an example tomorrow when I can be bothered to look!
Just had a quick look, and I've found VGC 045 Charred Brown
, VMC 945 Flat Brown
and VMC 856 Ochre Brown
(more of a highlight colour)
I've not looked in the Citadel range simply because I'm sure you know where to find them, but may not have looked at the Vallejo ranges. There are a massive number of other shades in there, these were just the first ones I found.
The Charred Brown I have to hand, so could show you an example of, the other two I'm waiting on in an order.
As for cream colours (as mentioned above) Citadel already have Zandri Dust, Ushabti Bone, Screaming Skull, Rakarth Flesh & Pallid Wych Flesh, but there's also VMC 918 Ivory
as an option.
As for adding in colour, have a look at an official photo of the model here.
The red sword grip, the warmer tone of the gloves, and the red inside of the robes all catch the eye. There's also the armour's ribcage, which it doesn't look like you've picked out yet, and the various studs and bolts too. =]
