Its a slick and basic paint scheme, maybe a wash of chaos black cross the grey areas for detail. Very nice though.


Life is all anatomy lessons and paint brushes

Heya. Nice models .

I like your scheme. A couple of suggestions if you dont mind. Maybe look into buying some washes, these whould add loads of depth to the models.

Also you might want to try some simple highlights. If you add a little white to your red and just highlight the edges of the models it will really make them pop.

Oh and when taking photos try placing your models on some white paper. It makes it easier for us to give you feedback .

Keep up the good work.

Those are my two Pathfinders... As you can see they are quite camouflaged.






They're painted almost the same as the Ke'lshan sept.
Armor is painted with codex grey.
Clothing is painted with Chaplain grey a paint that me and Doelago came up with.

You came up with the paint, I came up with the name when I painted the Chaplain

I really like those, they look awesome in reality. It might not be easy to see here, but they are actually very nice looking, as the colors of the armor work well together with their Ghillie wanabe guns and suits


Nice job Keep up the good work!
