<<Snip>>

(((Original 1st post below))

Seeing as I switched Armies this month from Guard to Space Wolves for the Army Painting challenge 2011 I thought I'd do a project log to chronicle my army as it grows!

I'm really happy with the paint job on the models with these guys, I've only been into the hobby for around the past 12 months and I've seen my painting ability grow and grow and these are the best I've been able to put out thus far.

I'm also really enjoying painting Space Wolves, I want to make each one his own character, there will be no helmets and each will be as individual as possible. I've got some bits on the way for some awesome conversions which I'll post later this week.

Now, not much to begin with, all I've got done so far is...

Aprils Entry: A Grey Hunters Rhino



And 5 of my pack of 14 Blood Claws

These are looking really great! For being a year into the hobby you are definitely doing well in the painting department and you will only continue to improve from here.

A few things: The faces and hair are both really well done. Lots of definition in them and in the other details like the loin cloths, skulls and bone bits. But when put next to these things the armor looks flat. I like the dark feel that you have gone with the grey, but I would really consider adding a layer or two of highlighting just to bring the armor up to the same level as the other stuff.

Once again good work and I look forward to following your log.

Midge thanks for the great reply, With the armour i've dry brushed a lighter grey after applying a wash of badab black in a weak attempt at highlighting. I've not branched out to 'propper' highlighting yet but I'd love to give it a shot, I'll have a go and post the results

Sounds good mate! Actually drybrushing, done properly, will give you a great template as tow where natural highlights will fall. From there it is just working with watered down layers to build the highlights up gradually. I look forward to your results.

Right, first time ever 'propper' highlighting. I used fortress grey heavily watered down.

What do you guys think?

The highlight has really made the models pop.

also, that is very tidy for your first attempt at highlighting; my only suggestion would be to do a wash over the top; that should make a even better transition.

Thanks for the rep guys, comparing the before and afters I can see what you mean about the armour being flat.

Thanks again!
