Hey, I finished painting my first Guardsman and submitted the pictures to the gallery. I have to wait to get the pictures approved, it seems, but I'm very pleased with the way the camo scheme worked out. I wanted a dark-blue night/urban camo scheme, and I used the suggestions from the IG book on painting the Kasrkin camo, and it worked great! I chose the name "Night Moths" for my IG army, as the camo scheme kind of reminds me of the pattern of certain moths that have eyespots on their wings to frighten away predators. I'm looking forwards to getting my first tanks so I can actually draw some moth shapes on them with eyespots. I'm nearly done with the rest of the squad too. So, when it comes up in the gallery, please go view and rate my model. Thanks!
OK, they're up, here's the link: http://gallery.librarium-online.com/....php?album=167
You say you wanted a dark-blue night/urban camo scheme but the link you provided shows no very little blue, all i see is a few green/brown IG veichles and some red/orange SM stuff.
*talking about this image*
I think its very well painted and i like the idea of having... moss is it? stuck in the tracks. However, i think it looks a bit shiny as it is now - it looks like it just came out of the carwash dammit! That might be because of the lighting thoug. I think it would look better if it seemed more... worn out, but still very nicely made.
Follow the link...
Duh, I just fixed the above link so it went to the album, not just its position on the picture page.
lol..you would be talking about my stuff. Its not that shiny, the flash or something is making it look that way.

Thanks. I was having some trouble there with that model as far as the Prussian Blue went, but overall I'm happy with the effect.
This gives me a good chance to create some fluff around my army now that I know what they will look like. Night/City Fighters!
Certainly better than my first go with my Catachans. I like the fluff as well.

Hey, thanks a lot. I'm finding that as I continue to build this army, I'm getting a much better feel for the fluff of it. I really enjoy this process, because I feel like the army is creating itself, even as I am creating it. I'm going to make a separate post for the fluff soon, and get some thoughts on that.
Sorry, i was a bit tired when i posted that. Suppose its just like me to make mistakes like that. :/
(Going to compare your painting with my attempt at painting guardsmen.)
Looks like you spent a lot of time painting your models, unlike me you accually bothered painting eyes(my hands are a bit shaky so i don't dare doing that. People will only see the eyes unless they pick up the model and look closely anyway) Your camospots are better made than mine aswell, I like how you mixed two colors to make one spot.
Nice work with the base and transfer sheets, haven't done that myself yet on my modles(just started a guard army myself), going to do that tomorrow after i've checked my models for more painting errors if there is time.
Geez, here i was supposed to comment your painting and still i just talked about mine. Nice work, but i wonder what possessed you to paint the grenades blue. Different tastes i guess.
Dude, don't be so hard on yourself. You have a sharp-looking color scheme and your paint job is fine. The only thing that I would suggest is, when you are painting the shoulder pads, do it from the outside of the pad, and paint with the side of your brush (not the tip) dragging the brush sideways across the line you want to paint. It should give you a much firmer line.
Otherwise, drinking less coffee with help those shaking hands :lol: .
Edit: The grenades are blue because in that kind of organization everything gets painted to match the camo color. When I was in the military, I used to have a little bottle of black paint so that I could paint the metal eyelets of my boots where the metal was getting shiny, so people would not see my feet in the dark. So this organization spray-paints their grenades before they issue them to the troops so as to not ruin their camo.
