Thanks for the advice. I haven't had a chance to paint much lately, but it is still very much an ongoing project. I shall bear that in mind when I do my scouts.

- Another thin wash
- Lighter drybrush
- Repeat until you like it
That way you get a smoother transition of colour, rather than "light bit" then "dark bit" as can happen if you're not careful. I'm no expert myself so I may have interpreted it completely wrong; he may indeed have meant for you to drybrush the wash on.

Firstly, cheers for the +rep
As for my washing abilities, I'm pretty much a novice painter (still, lol), so washes are actually fairly new to me. My method so far has simply been to "apply wash to surface and let dry", with little precision. So, by your method, I drybrush the washes on, layer by layer?
Thanks for the C&C.

|Khorne's Fist||Looking good. I will say that there are bubble marks on the robes of Azreal and the Watcher, where bubbles formed when you applied the wash and then dried like that. Also, when applying the washes, I've found when washing over light colours that a few thin coats with a progressively lighter dry brush of the base colour between each one works much better than giving it one heavy wash as you seem to have. This gives it a much more even and smooth finish.|

Oh, and I thought I'd have a separate post for Azzie:

Hey, guess what. It's a muthafuckin' UPDATE!
And *shockhorror* I also have a decent(ish) camera for photos!
So yeh, I have completed so far:
- 3x Company Masters
- Command Squad
- Assault Squad
- 3x Deathwing Terminators
- ~5 Company Veterans
- Veteran Sergeant
- ~6 Ravenwing Bikers
- ~8-10 Scouts
Note: I'm still working on perfecting my skin tones, hence the black faces.
Note 2: I don't have the tools to drill out gun barrels
Anyways, WIP are:
- Remaining Ravenwing bikers
- 2x Tactical squads
- Couple of Company Vets
- 2 Deathwing Terminators
- More Scouts
- Land Speeder
- Ven Dreadnought.

OK this is gonna be the last update for the next couple of weeks, coz I'm going away for a bit. But anyway, we have here:
- 3rd Company Master
- 10th company master
- 3rd company command squad
- 3rd company veteran squad
- 2 Ravenwing attack squadrons (3 bikes each)
- 3 DW terminators
- 3rd company 7th assault squad
- 3rd company 1st squad sgt
Again, crappy picture quality...
I'll also point out that I won't be basing my models, and I haven't got the correct paints to do flesh at the moment, so those aspects will have to wait.

Another quickie update! So far around half the stuff is basecoated, whilst the other half wait for priming. I haven't applied any washes or highlighting yet, but the ground work is done. I know (still) the piccies are crap, but do what you can with them
I'll post some proper pics by the end of the week, when the rest of the army is at the same stage as these bits.
