Icon Grimgor Ironhide and a Shaman

While I get to work on converting and creating my own SM Blood Angels army, I thought I might as well show you guys some of my earlier paint jobs. Please bear in mind that all these were painted 7+ years ago

Grimgor:





and a blitz one



The Shaman (this will forever be my favortie Orc mini created)






again, bear in mind that these are VERY old paint jobs of mine, and there were A LOT of things I did not know back then (I thought highlighting consisted of thinning down skull white with water and then glazing that over the actual color hehe, you can that I have tried this on the Shaman). Since i haven't painted anything since then either, I'm quite excited to test out my skills again while knowing the things I do know, that I did not know at that time.

C&C's are of course very welcome, as constructive critisicm on these might help my future work!

thanks in advance and enjoy!

Try some of the new washes, they work really well on toning down some shades, in particular metallics and skin tones. They'd work well on Grimgor especially.

i know this now as I am working on some Blood Angels (the new washes are amazing!), but i was just wanted to show you guys these old orkies s you can compare my work from 7 years ago to my new ones

I might re-do these at some point though

The paint is very thick so you will want to thin it down and the new washes will definetly help with the shading and highlighting.

Can't wait to see the new stuff to get a comparison of what you paint like now compared to then.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

yup, this is back when i thought 1 thick paintjob would eventually turn into something nice...

you could check out my Blood Angel Terminator thread to get an impression already until i finish it and get the pictures uploaded
