Default Titan Forge Demon Hunter Assassins

I just purchased some Demon Hunter Assassins to use as Death Cultists.

Started working on them. These are the first two. I'm not the best painter but I think they came out ok. I'll post more photos of the rest as they are finished.

The colour scheme is well chosen and using gloss for latex is a cunning idea.

However you paint does look very thick; I suggest using more, thinner layers as it will give you more control and not mask the detail.

I will give it a shot on the rest thanks. I'm not completely happy with the GW paint I've been using. It takes either thick paint or many layers to cover up the black base coat I've been using. Thinking of switching to a different brand.

Try the 'foundation' paints (or whatever the 145 paints are called these days).
They were designed for black undercoats and have a higher pigment density (mechrite red covered black with one coat, for example).

The regular colours had no way in hell of doing it short of 6-7 coats and some required even more.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

Thanks, yeah I have some, including the Mechrite red (which smells really bad for some reason?). They seem to work ok but I don't understand the need for a higher pigment ratio in some paints and not others, unless they are a wash of course. So I'm thinking of moving on from GW paints and getting something better. The question of course is what?
