Riptide build part 8: Don't Look at the Feet!

Little more paint on the Riptide but in my quest for a non green color I fudged up the feet. I forget what combo of paint I used but it was far too yellow for me and my attempt to go over it with Vallejo Ocher didn't work out either. I finally settled on just straight Vallejo model air Ocher which I was turned onto by Jawaballs in a recent blog/video where he explains the paints he's using on his Tau army.

You can see my use of the Ocher on the gun, the head and on the shield so far. I'll use it on some more places but It's getting late so it'll have to wait till tomorrow.

As always, CC is welcome and appreciated! (and ignore the feet!)

Thanks for looking!


  1. Personally I really liked the 'white' feet you had in the last post, much more than this ocher.

  2. Have to say I agree. The white feet looked great!

  3. Hey folks! Thanks for the comments.

    If you're both referring to the white lower legs/feet in part 7, that was just the primed model with some pre-shading done. I'd actually gone on to paint them a yellow-ish color (not pictured) which just turned out to be too bright. I then tried to go over that with the Ocher which just made it worse. I'm going to mask off the legs today and re prime/pre shade the feet again. Maybe I'll try a light grey on them.
