Agreed. The terminator is starting to look a lot better.

The cultists are looking a little flat. I would go big brush and do a loose base coat of dark brown and then build up the colors your using.

They're only 1/3 or so done at this point, I'm gonna wash them next. Only need to paint the metal bits and they'll be ready for it.

Oh, I know they're only partly done. Using a colour another level up in brightness really helps when you add on reds and brighter browns.

Basically it would make your colours more solid and nuanced.

Oooh, gotcha! So that's something to do before I use the wash?

Well, unfortunately it's what you do before you paint the colors you already have on these guys.

Oh ok, I saw the GW painter do that in an instructional video with Rhinox Hide. No biggie. I have about 110 more Cultists to try that with.

Yeah, exactly. Paints Rhinox Hide on top of the primer and then everything else on top of that. I'll give it a shot, I have Rhinox Hide. I'll spray the suckers with an airbrush.

Yeah, @venomlust has it exactly. Building up your colours adds nuances and makes each successive layer stronger, and makes it easier to add thinner and lighter colors over a darker primer colour.

Think of paint as a translucent layer of color. So whatever color is underneath shows through the newer layers of pigments.

Red especially takes quite a few layers to show up over the black primer I used. It settles in the recesses quite readily and the raised areas not so much. I'm thinning my paints quite a bit, but I guess red pigments aren't very thick? Something about the red is different, because I'm not thinning it more than the other colors. I suppose light browns took a few layers too.
