Here is a pic of the head with a black thing behind it to provide a proper outline. I think it's size appropriate, but I will raise it up a mm or so and press it farther back toward the backpack end of the "head hole."



Got my new compressor, 30 doggies primed! (A handful not pictured, in case you bothered to count and give me shit about it... )



Planning to paint them with Vallejo model air "fire red" color.

So here I am testing the potential color scheme on the Barghest Fiend hounds on some old school flesh hounds from GW.

I started with vallejo fire red:



Then vallejo flat red:



Then I tried out 3 GW washes to see which I like best. Maybe I used too much? Tell me what you think:

Carroburg Crimson:



Druchii Violet:



Reikland Fleshshade:

I really like the violet on there. It gives a nice offset to the red especially once you put the metal bits in.

That's looking pretty good.

I think I'd do it a bit differently though. I think I'd do a layer of dark brown after the prime coat, then the fire red, the flat red (which looks to heavy on the test model), then maybe a mix of the druchii and reikland, and a final light highlight with a bright red or red-orange.

I've created the bases for all my dogs using grey grit stuff (bachmann trains gravel - dark grey, fine)

with bits of wine corks as rocks.

I'm going to be basing the entire army this way. The idea is that they're on a Goreworld where the substrate is crushed skulls and bones, from eons of battles to earn the Blood God's favor.

I've been experimenting with color schemes for the armored members of the Brass Stampede. I want them to have brass-type/metallic armor. Here are some of my experiments so far (using the back of the mini, as it was easier to focus on the entire plane rather than arms being blurry from the front angle):

I started by spraying the mini with Vallejo's bronze as the basecoat:



I then coated the model with GW nuln oil and drybrushed with Vallejo's brass, and tried to highlight some edges with Vallejo's old gold:





In theory, this is fine, but there is a real lack of contrast going on. Of course, when certain bits such as the armor joints, horns, eyes and so on are painted their appropriate colors the minis will look better.

Last week I was at my local GW and found a color I'd never seen before and really liked! It's called Screaming Bell. I thought this might be a great initial undercoat over which to layer the bronze/brass/old gold.

I also used this as an opportunity to test out GW's nialakh oxide, which I believe is a perfect opportunity to make the paint scheme more colorful without looking like a rainbow. This is my first attempt, and clearly I used too much of the stuff, but here are my results:

Half is just screaming bell washed with nuln oil and then bronze drybrushed over it, and the other half is the same but with nialakh oxide in the recesses before the drybrushing step:





I think if I use less of the nialakh oxide and apply it before the nuln oil, the effect will be much better.

Here's a random test plague marine with bonze basecoat => drybrushed brass with screaming bell highlights sprayed on just to see how it would look:

I love this sort of stuff!

The screaming bell looks like a warm copper colour.

I would build up layers with:
Rhinox hide or dark brown
Warplock bronze*
Bronze (I forget the current color name)
Vallejo bronze
Nuln oil
Vallejo bronze (again, but lighter)
Finally I'd add a little oxide into the lower recesses where corrosion might have accumulated, keeping in mind that high friction areas would be bright.

Awesome, thanks for the suggestions. I still have lots of experimentation before I'll settle on everything, but I'll try some of this. Not sure I have all the GW bronzes/brasses and such, but I'll make due.

First of all, I've decided to create a blog to showcase my stuff. Why not?

In case anyone's ever interested, the link is in my sig as well as right here:

AMATEUR KHORNESTAR

Decided to try some methods @Nordicus suggested (i.e. drybrushing) that he used while working on his fiends-as-hounds. I'm liking the results better than when I was painting wet.

Started with a coat of Vallejo flat brown:



Then some of Vallejo Air Fire Red:



Then washed with a mix of GW's Druchii Violet and Reikland Fleshshade (kudos, @Kreuger ):



Then drybrushed with Khorne Red:



Then drybrushed with a bit of Mephiston Red:



Then drybrushed with a tiny bit of Vallejo's Vermillion:



You can see here that I attempted to paint some highlights with vermillion, but it didn't really end up looking good. Maybe I'm not thinning my paint enough (though I'm definitely thinning it, maybe too much?) but when I paint on top of airbrushed layers it just doesn't look good. Drybrushing seems to be the key on top of anything painted with an airbrush.

Then I experimented a bit more using nihilakh oxide.



Vallejo bronze sprayed on black primer, nihilakh oxide painted into recesses, nuln oil wash, and then drybrushed warplock bronze to test the color, then highlighted with vallejo bronze again.

I think if I start with warplock bronze as the basecoat, then use even less nihilakh oxide, then nuln oil, then use vallejo bronze as the post-wash drybrush/highlight, it will look just the way I want it to.
