hey all, I finished painting the first of my 2 Land Speeders today, and I'm quite pleased with the results. Since I was taking pictures I also took a couple of some of the other models in the army. Comments welcome!
the hunters are an example of my first experience with power armor. I started Wolves after playing daemons for a bit over a year, and daemons was all a matter of washing and drybrushing. I'm still having a bit of trouble getting the power armour to have depth while still looking clean. I think I'm getting a bit better at it, but also the picture isn't the best. I thought I'd get better pic quality by putting some paper in the back but I think the speeder pics are better.
thanks for the comments!
edit: after looking at the pics of the speeder again, I think I have to redo the bumper. The boltgun metal is a bit blotchy there. Any other places I missed?
the bumper mostly, the body itsself is abit blotchy with the highlights, but it works for the model for the most part. Id make sure to get the overlap of paint on the edges of the step too on the gunner side, you can easily see that you got grey paint on it.
Ill say this before someone says it: the hand on the gunner seat, the models like that, its not too much paint (I can say that cuz I have a speeder right infront of me im painting myself)
but all aside, do you use washes on these models? because Id use a badab black on them then lightly reapply a thinned colour of your choice for the bodies if you dont want it darkened.
well Id say for your highlights, Id cut back abit on the highlights, or make SWG your main colour and use a SWG white mix for thin highlights. since I see some of your highlights seem to extend almost half way through the body.
