Matcap's painting Corner; Knight Incoming!
 
Hey all,

As the title says, I was gone from the hobby for the last ten years, only following the BL publications and such. However due to the girlfriend being interested in wargaming and the DV set coming out I decided to try my hand at (re)painting some Dark Angels.

Here is the first squad almost finished.

Noticed the smartphone camera is a bit dodgy so sorry about the quality of the pictures.

Any feedback, tips/tricks are very much appreciated!

Looks like you retained some skills over the break.

Your edge highlights are a little wide. I suggest putting them on by drawing the side of the brush along the edge instead of using the point to draw them in. Glazing/washing the whole area will also draw them together.

Thanks for the tip. I will try to blend them some more, the highlight on the knees was done this wide because I usually find some of the details get lost on the tabletop when you make them too small. Might just experiment a bit more. Would you recommend a glaze or wash?

And an update on 5 of the boys with improved (toned down) highlighting and details finished.

A glaze would work better as it is designed to create an even transparent layer over the surface, so would be best if you have/are happy to make one; however a light wash over the area would be effective enough I would not bother buying a glaze especially if I had a wash already.

Those are very nice, inspiring for an upcoming project I have in mind.

Thanks for the kind words, will you be starting a DA army as well? (Edit: I think I found it, expanding the DV set into a proper army?)

Made do with a wash now and quite pleased with the results :)

And finally made some headway with my first Deathwing termie. I find that getting the bonecolour right is really, really tricky

You're welcome, good work should always see recognition. But, since the +rep button is gone... I do sincerely hope you consider posting a step by step description of how you accomplished your end result.

Yes, sir. You found my thread and there is work to be done with it still. I'm hoping to have it sorted soon and not see a drastic change when the new DA 'dex issues.

Right after dropping off the radar for a while because of moving to a new place, a quick update with a WiP DV sergeant

Jace I'm up for doing a step by step, however I'm currently kinda swamped with unboxing and all that so after the dust has settled I will make one. :-)

A small update:

The finished DV Sergeant:

And a DA veteran kitbash based on a model I saw on another forum WiP:

Hope you enjoy them!

Hey. Love the models. Good highlighting and neat. The termie looks good but the paint looks a little thick. Maybe try watering the paint down some more. Some devlan mud or whatever the new named wash equivalent is in the recesses would make it really pop.

Personally for bone I use a base of khermi brown then build on it with dheneb stone and white highlights.

Keep up the good work.
