I've just begun work on an Emperors Children army and suddenly realized....GW doesn't make Tentacle Pink anymore!

so how do you get around this lack of main colour? mix some paint to make pink, sustitute Tentacle Pink for Warlock Purple or something? I'd like to know of anyone's experience with this. It boggles my mind that they would get rid of a colour that's the main colour for an entire cult....

I normally use warlock purple for the main part, mix it with a bit of white gives it a nicer lighter shade suitable for slannesh.

If your doing wings then paint them purple, a heavy red wash and highlight with lighter purple, works well for slanneshi skin too.

Slaanesh is always getting the shaft...and giving the shaft...it`s just the nature of Slaanesh.

Sorry, couldn`t resist.

Mixing or going with purple are probably the two simplest options.

Are other paint companies though, I'm not sure if Coat d'Arms have a pink but Vallejo certainly have a few, one of which seems to be rather like tentacle pink called Squid Pink, they also have a more military kinda pastel desert camo looking pink and even a flourecent magenta. :evilgrin:

I believe that Vallejo paints are the exact same colors, just with different names. http://www.acrylicosvallejo.com/asp-inc/_modelis_info.asp?p1=ing&p2=gamecolor&p3=1#gamecolorinfo is the link to the Vallejo Game Color to Games Workshop.

And I thought I was the only one who couldnt find pink. Pink Horrors are also hard to do without pink.

Are Vallejo paints available in Australia?

This is exactly what was going through my mind when I read the thread title. Needless to say, my mind is in the gutter almost all the time. ;)

That's the distributors so you could shoot them an email and find out where they're sold or buy online from http://www.acrylicosvallejo.com if you're into the online shopping bit.

This should really be a sticky the sheer amount of times this site is linked to...

Tentacle pink is 1 part Blood Red and 3 parts Skull White. If you have an empty pot you could mix it up yourself if you want to go through the trouble.

Never was a fan of the pink on slaanesh, so my Emp's children are purple, but a light blue (ice blue?) could look good mixed with the black, or even a orange....

Just any bright colours work well for slaanesh, don't feel limited to pink

That all being said, shop around for other paint companies

How about you go and buy a bottle of pink paint at any craft store. Done. If you have to have something almost literally Tentacle Pink, go with Vallejo Game Color Squid Pink: http://www.thewarstore.com/product43626.html

Haha, I've still got pots from the range before that, round pots with pop lids. I think they must be from 94 or something, and had been sitting in the store for a long time before I bought them.

Psssttt. You dont HAVE to use GW paint. There are other companies that make that shade of pink.

And having a good time while at it. And then there is the spanking!

Back to the original topic, I would second what has already been stated:

1.) Try other paint companies like Vallejo
2.) Mix red and white in different proportions until you find one that you like

Of course you could go for some other colour scheme, but is there anything more embarrassing for an enemy than to get beaten by a pink army?

First thing I thought when I saw this thread too. :)

Get one of Vallejo color's many varieties of pink. Problem solved!

Slaanesh could be any pastal shade really, as that's the colours suggested in the old Realms of Chaos books.
