Well going through files i came across some pics of more work so thought i'd post them to see what yo all think. I personaly like going back to my older work to see how much i have improved, it gives me a good boost and i'm the kinda person who's next model has to be a vast improvement on the last.

This model is now finished, just to lazy to lazy to take another pic right now



This tank was painted for a store army and one of my early goes at free hand






These are part of my gaming army and one i use quite a bit, even though i didn't paint everything ( eyes ) i'm still pleased as the unit was 16 hours in total to paint. And the shine is fresh varnish which is now gone quite dull :grin:
and last but not least .......

I'm still working on this one but i keep putting it down then go back to it etc
But i have tried to copy the 'eavy metal one that was done to see how close i could get it, still a long way to go but i'm now putting in the hours to improve.

all comments welcome

You've definitely got some skill Warpath. That Dark Angel in particular is fantastic, nice clean paint job.

I have yet to not be impressed by the painting mate, this is seriously impressive. I would love some tips on the diamond pattern on the shadowseer, as im going to be painting some harlequins in the next couple of months. :eek:k:

Wow.

Great stuff, all around!

While I am impressed by the freehand on the rhino, I am in love with that Dark Angel!

Show us some more, please?

Thanks for the great comments it really motivates me to make my next model even better.

Logain_85 I would love some tips on the diamond pattern on the shadowseer, as im going to be painting some harlequins in the next couple of months.
The best way i think imo is to choose your base colour Ie for me it was red, paint this on then with black paint the lines (checks) and then add your second colour (blue) to get your check pattern. I had to do a lot of tidying up as i don't have a very steady hand compared to some people. I did the high lights on the seer like they was gems so he stands out more. I'm working on a unit of harlequins so i'll try get some pics and do it as a tutorial.

bloodhound May I ask, how did you do the green on the master? I play dark angels and I need to improve the green on my whole army.
Yeah the model was sprayed black, then a couple of thin coats of D/A green followed by a watered down black ink wash. I then did another layer of d/a green, for the high lights i mixed d/a green with snot green and for final high lights i mixedin bleached bone.

Hope this helps Bloodhound

Practice makes perfect!

***sighs***

If only you could teach as well as you paint and I didn't have two screaming babies to keep me from my paintbrushes......

I'd not seen your Eldar pathfinders until now! Great work dude!
