i know, i primed him in cold temperatures, wont do it again i promise!


im not done with it, i still need to do some outlining and do the 'eavy metal effect, he could have looked alot better if his primed coat wasnt so spotty..grrrr


criticism, comments, and suggestions welcome, i want to be able to paint a very even coat, not a spotty one!

ONe thing that really helps add detail but is super easy to do is to do some highlighting. Mix in a bit of a lighter blue with the base blue you have here and on areas where the light is strongest such as the very edges and certain other areas, add some of the lighter colour. Really makes the model pop.

That's a lot better looking. You may want to thin down your paints as teh metallics look a bit thick. But other than that he looks fine.

maybe add some battle damage and make the rough texture work for YOU.
Maybe like he got sprayed by tyrannid acid.
If you dont have a pin vise to make the holes you can always heat a needle or something.

there is a wat ro get rid of the bumpy surface, but i can't rember how...I know helpful.

The other thing you could do is try using inks, water them down, its always best to make them too watery and then test, then if its not shading then add more ink, also add Pva glue(white glue/wood glue) as that will help it settle.
