Due to my slow progress with painting the white robes I decided it was time to consider the alternative, as Iíve mentioned before the only other colour than would suit them was purple similar to the sorcerer on the novelís front cover. So after an evening of painting I ended up with thisÖ
To be honest I didnít expect it could work so well, I think the purple makes him look even more mystic and blends well with the rest of the model. I painted some gold icons round the rim but the dust effect covered most of them up.
Iím still debating trying it with white, however itís hard to imagine the model working with that colour anymore. Anyway Iím anxious to hear feedback regarding the robeís colour so let me know what you think?
