Here are the first 10 Kriegsmen that I plan on having finished sometime next week for the Jan 2011 painting comp. I will take some more pics as I progress with them.
I tried a new thing with the helmet and shoulder pads on this guy using Vallejo German Grey then using boltgun metal to show dings and scratchs...Looks ALOT better! What do you think of them now? Still think the lasgun needs to be changed?As for the models I like the looks of them with a single exception: the metal areas. The paint on the metal of the gun and helmet are a huge contrast with the way the rest of the models are painting and almost makes them look like you couldn't be bothered to do a nice job on them. I would suggest you paint these areas full boltgun metal, no drybrushing just straight and even coverage, and then use a black wash to dull them down, maybe a small bit of brown in crevasses once the black dries. Doesn't really take any more work but the result is much nicer.
Thanks mate, looks like its back to the drawing board for the lasgun.I think the lasgun is a bit to clean for a Krieg regiment. I think it would feel good with some Devlan mud on it. Otherwise I just wanna say your doing some great work
