Prism Cannon

Prism Cannon

I tried lightsourcing for the Prism Cannon on my Fire Prism. I'm not entirely sure about the result. If I find that I don't like it, it should be easy to both remove or improve on it.

To get the effect on the prism itself, I simply started with a white undercoat, which I washed black halfway up the front. Then I stippled on the reds from Red Gore, into Blood Red, and finally Golden Yellow. A lot of mixing inbetween these colors, of course.

What do you guys think? Any tips on the lightsourcing technique would be awesome!

I don't know that I've seen a Prism Cannon that color before, but I really like it. The effect is quite nice!

Thanks! When I thought about which color to use, I was sure that the "standard" blue/white crystal would clash with the rest of the model. The red into yellow harmonizes better with the black and yellow on my Eldar vehicles, in my opinion.
