And while I was waiting on the paint to dry on my Capri build, I have been assembling these guys for a little mojo pick me up. Last night I black primed them, and then started on the painting - everything else is to be done by hand... I've never EVER done anything like this, but I really like the art of them, and how awesome they can look when done, so let's see shall we!
Only really painting the one at the moment... The other will be a bit later.
Cool K2, great to have a time filler.
These Warhammer chaps are quite cool aren't they, I painted a Goblin dude a while back. It was nice to do something different for a change.
There are some pretty outstanding Warhammer / gaming painters out there.
Well, had a couple of hours last night to carry on painting this guy - getting closer. It's a different game painting up these little guys - very different. Using their paints as well, they're a lot thicker than I'm used to, and have to water it down a bit... but it seems to be going alright.
Unsure what else to do really... any suggestions would be much appreciated - the gun has still to be painted fyi - might put some scorch marks around the two jet booster things he has by his shoulders... I have put a Dark Grime florys wash over the top half a bit, did try a bit of dry brushing, but it doesn't work as most of the hard edges are the gold trim. I'll try do a bit on the hoses and such around his face, but it's so hard to dry brush such a small area lol.
I painted a bunch of figures for my mates zombie board game "Zombiecide" and a dude I know from weta gave me some great advice for dipping the figures in a black wash, the difference is amazing shadows definition etc and if you want to go lighter get out the cotton buds!!
