Default Medic Marine's Medical Misadventure with paint

I have been away from the hobby for roughly 3-4 years. I have parter with the vast majority of my models as they were to numerous to ship 15000+ Km. Now that I am settled and Uni is in full swing I found a GW and wondered in, a lot has changed in the time I was gone. So after two weeks of internal strife I have jumped back into the hobby.

Rather than stress about the playing, rules, and finding new people to game with I decided to paint. I used to rush a model and paint shit models so I could play them. So now I want to get better at painting. To jump in I figured I would try some of the techniques I was never good at. So my first batch is going to be the Space Marine Heroes. Starting with the chaplain.

Primes black I took the time to get rid of mold lines as best I could and get the abbadon black where the spray didn't cover before trying a 1:1 mix of Dawnstone & Adminstratum Grey as primary highlights.

First attempt at painting in a few years be gentle...

Chaplain's body with primary highlights, needs to be cleaned up.

All feedback is appreciated!

Looks fine so far mate, what's the next step for highlights?

Plan is a 2:1 admin grey and dawn stone to a final pure admin grey.
Did the soft armor as lead belcher with a ulin black wash. Tried to smooth out the thick highlight spots as well. Will make a run fir gold and bone colored paints to tackle head and trim tomorrow.

Rule of three is a good one to use for painting! I like the agrax earthshade to dull the gold and bone, and then drybrush the original colour over the top. Try it and see what you think!

Default Chaplain Base: gold and purity seal

As the title says, I have placed the base to the gold portions of the chaplain, and parchment/purity seals. The initial highlights have been touched up and the backpack has been highlighted as well. Soft armour on the arms, bolt pistol have been done as well.

Next steps will be to do second highlights of the armour, and wash the seals and parchment.
With any luck I will base all of the bone surfaces as well tonight.

feedback welcome

Your progress is looking good! I'd perhaps consider doing a bone drybrush over the parchment and taking your black back and very slowly narrowing the highlights using the tip of the brush, which may make things pop a little more.

Overall good progress though!

Cheers, I bit the bullet and bought a decent paint brush and totally agree. Hopefully getting to do my bone and remaining gold washes tonight and then look to the remaining Armour highlights and cleaning the thick lines up.

Funny you should say that, after doing all my skitarii and getting increasingly frustrated with the apparent degredation in my skills, I actually had a critical look at my brushes and discovered that not one of them had a useable point, and several were looking pretty splayed (oops, stippling wrecks them...). Amazing the difference that it makes!

All base colors done, applying the washes to bone now and struggling to highlight the armour.

Trying to decide what chapter these should be, thinking of going full Vanilla and painting Ultramarines.

That is turning into a lovely looking model. Can't wait to see it finished. Keep it up.
