What Xenos Armies to paint with Tesseract Glow
- The Tyranid Hive Fleet: The Tyranid Hive Fleet is an army of monstrous, insect-like creatures known for their bioluminescent exoskeletons and the ability to consume entire planets. Painting them with Tesseract Glow can help bring out the luminous details and give them a more otherworldly appearance. This army is a perfect fit for the Tesseract Glow paint because of the army’s focus on bioluminescence, and how this color scheme can help bring that to life.
- The Necron Dynasty: The Necron Dynasty is an army of immortal, robotic beings who have awakened from their ancient slumber. The Necrons are known for their sleek, metallic bodies and the ability to harness the power of the Tesseract Vaults. Painting them with Tesseract Glow can help emphasize the Necrons’ futuristic, glowing technology and add depth to their ancient, yet advanced, appearance.
- The T’au Empire: The T’au Empire is an army of technologically advanced aliens who value logic, expansion and unity. The T’au have a sleek and modern appearance, often incorporating advanced technology into their armor and weaponry. Painting their armor with Tesseract Glow can help give the T’au a more technologically advanced and futuristic look, highlighting their technological prowess in the Warhammer 40K universe. The glowing effect of Tesseract Glow will also make their technology stand out, further emphasizing their power and superiority.
Tesseract Glow Colour Schemes & Combinations
- When it comes to pairing the Tesseract Glow paint with other Citadel Colours, blue is an excellent choice. A deep blue such as Enchanted Blue or Ultramarine Blues can be used to complement the bright and glowing tones of the Tesseract Glow and provide a stunning contrast. These blues can also be used to paint the shadows on the army, giving it depth and dimension.
- For a darker and more ominous look, black is another great choice to pair with the Tesseract Glow. Paints such as Abaddon Black or Black Templar work well for creating a dramatic backdrop for the glowing elements of the army. These blacks can also be used to highlight the detail on the army, bringing out its unique features.
- Finally, brass and silver are an excellent option for a metallic accent on the army. This can be achieved with shades like Runefang Steel, Burnished Gold or Ironbreaker. These metallic tones can be used to paint the metal details of the army such as machinery, guns, and tanks, adding an extra level of detail and a touch of elegance to the army.
