First Dread


Second Dread. (I cleaned up the base some after this picture)


Both with all the Weapons. The arms and bodies are magnetic.



Librarian



Terminator 1



Terminator 2. The White on this guy gave me a lot of trouble. I think it turned out decent in the end.



All the arms are magnetic so they can be interchangeable.

Power armor GK test Model and Rhino. The PGK's back pack comes off so I can make him a fast attack or troop.

I am very impressed with this. they only thing I might say is add a bit of red to break up the silver. You're pretty much using all metallic colors, and some contrast would be nice. Other than that, spot-on painting job and keep it up.

There's 3 different kind of silvers on everything. The photos don't really do it justice. I'm going for plain looking tanks as to not distract from the guys on foot. If this is a bad idea let me know. =)

I'm kind of leery about using washes. My local shop was out of the ones I needed. Any tips would be appreciated. This is my first time really painting anything.

i think we need to water the washes down too, im guessing youre using a babab black (or variation of)

i saw a streak marks on the rhino and i think thats been caused by letting the wash pool, i have the same issue which is why im avoiding painting my IG tanks

I haven't used any washes yet. I was hoping the streaks would not be as noticeable once the wash is applied.

After painting these guys I have more respect for guard players. I really like the one with the leg wound. Don't know if it came out really well in the picture though.

I've descided it's hard to take a good picture of a tech marine. Now that I have him painted I see all the holes in the hoses and air pockets from the poor casting. =(

Looks really nice, but as a Necron player I know the risks of too much silver, and that is that you can come out looking very flat.

Your silvers need a wash to bring out the shapes. Everything looks a little monotone at the moment, with no noise to break up the spaces. I say first do a black wash to bring out the shadows, then a thinner blue wash to make everything look spiffy. You don't have to cover the flat areas. Just hit the crevices then wipe the large spaces you want to remain untainted by the wash with a q-tip, and viola, silver with deep shadows. It provides some texture and noise to break up the silvers.
