Hi

Currently I'm painting several starters from various factions.
This is the first I have finished: Imperial Starter

http://imgur.com/a/71NdG

I used a simple scheme , and much varnish to withstand the punishment supposed to do demos


Thanks!

Very nice. YOu mentioned you use clear coat. I seal my stuff with a gloss for a nice hard protective layer, then when that drys hit it with the Army Painter Flat clear coat to knock the shine off. It really brings the colors out with out the glossy shineyness. Try it sometime. Your stuff looks fantastic. Would love to play against it sometime.

I find Army Painter flat tends to fog up a bit. Might be the humidity (fog) in the UK! :P

I use Testors Dulcote, nothing quite like it. I should hit it with clearcoat first, but I can never be bothered!

First of all , Thanks for your comments

Thanks!

Your painting is neat and clean, congratulation.

The overall impression is very good too, we can clearly see the WWI/WWII inspiration for the color choice.

I just have one objection : you shoud not have used such a shiny metalic color for the weapons of your trencher : it looks like they are made out of tin can.

For your next work, you should use a mate grey color, like the one used by the prodos painters :

A base of grey, then a pale grey brush, then just a touch of white on the very edges.

I also got big issue with the personnal weaponry ;)

PS : I am talking of the firearms of course, not the blades who might also aprociate a little bit more of contrast.

Thanks!

The reason for metallic weapons is this:

I want the old 80's scheme. :mrgreen:
