Hey no problem! They really do look great! whats next on the agenda for this army?Many thanks to you Chaosftw, if it makes it any better, I love looking at Chaos armies. I am glad they seem thuggish, I was a starting to feel a little insecure about them not looking tough enough.
And thank you for the rep too! It is very appreciated.
I actually have quite a few boyz demanding attention! I tend to buy and assemble my army as I go, then sit down to lavish some time painting them.Hey no problem! They really do look great! whats next on the agenda for this army?
Sorry about the camera quality, maybe it doesnt show enough, but I do actually paint as you state with the scales of colour. I prefer a naturalness to the skin tones and also find a black foundation provides to stark a contrast, So although I spray undercoat in black, before I start work on the skin I basecoat it green with a foundation paint. Like you say, thinking about the numbers needing to be painted, can be daunting by layering up the free hand layers and tones with highlights but i do actually enjoy it. I am very odd in the respect that I rarely layer dry brush work. I personally have found a style I enjoy and hope turns out ok.hi there. Nice project progress. nicest that it concerns the green tide. Ok, making the goffs isn't good for your boyz, but as a member of the cult of speed, I can say, we can let you live for now!
As about your painting,(of course I need better pics to be sure of what I see) I can say that you seem to paint nice, though I could suggest some things. Most of all, that the tactic in painting ork skin, drybrushing green over the black undercoat, to make the skin, ok it is a common tactic, but it still is unnatural. Better results if you basecoat dark green, and then drybrush lighter one. (much better if you do this with layers of many green scales to a light green thin highlight, but that is too much for some people when they paint a tabletop army). Keep on the good job!
Paint your world!
