Menoth Test Figure

Finally started work on my Menoth army box that I bought a long time ago. Most of the time wasted was thinking about how I wanted the army too look. I ended up deciding on something other than the studio colors and went with yellow and blue with silver armor.

I've never painted yellow before and its turning out to be quite a challenge. I think I got the base color down, but I haven't figured out how to shade and highlight the yellow. Actually, all I've done is base colors here, no highlighting or shading has been done, just wanted to see how it all looked on the mini compared to in my head.

So far my plan is to take the blue up to Ultramarine's Blue and wash the armor plates with Badaab Black. The yellow is still a mystery though. Not sure how I'm going to do that.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated, all help is welcomed!
