I feel his left foot looks overly dark. It would be perfect with the shading, but there's as much overhead coverage of the right foot that I think they should be closer in colour.
ntaw you are absolutely right - that is just the nuln oil wash that has pooled on his leg and made it darker. I have covered it a little as I have weathered the armour tonight and painted and washed the base. I have also weathered the jump pack and had a go at painting the boosters on the back white - blue as if they are igniting. I think that the weathering has come out ok but the boosters look crap to put it simply. I haven't got a photo as I am still waiting for the base wash to dry. I'll post one this weekend when I figure out how to make the boosters look better - any ideas would be great!
While I was waiting for various bits of the assault marine to dry I painted up a couple of guardsmen that I had lying around - there's always a need for more meat in the grinder...
I have to say it is so much easier to paint guard than power armour, hats off to you marine players!!
My guys are dead simple:
1. Base colours - Always face first to completition then scab red, boltgun metal, codex grey and any accessories on there.
2. Wash - Nuln oil on the grey and metal, Agrax earthshade on the red.
3. Highlights - Boltgun metal again, codex grey again, scab red mixed with bleached bone and any accessories again such as belts etc.
4. Teeth on the shoulder pad with white.
Takes a bit of time but generally quite quick.
Back to the marine next week now...
