    My best painted Imperial Guard models.

    Hey guys, i'm new to these forums and I only have a few weeks gaming and painting experience. I guess I must be talanted or something, because some of my models came out pretty fair.

    Patience means perfect. My models look MUCH better in person!

    Wait for the pics to load! There are 8 pictures in this post.

    No try again with the baldness. Try a lighter shade of skin tone, doesn't look right.

    lol, I sorta agree. It doesn't look like he is naturally dark-skinned, more like his face got toasted by a flamer.

    Your paint looks very thick but it's not to shabby all up.

    after painting over 10,000 pts of different armies i found it better to water down the paint and apply two coats to the models, unless your shading, highlighting, drybrushing, or any other technique that requires light coats of paint. also another thing that comes in hands is ink's. they give off a very strong color and can make the models stand out a lot more.

    For only having painted a few weeks, it's pretty good. Your metallic portions need more detail, as they look too much like a Tonka Toy. Also, the white camouflage portions look bare and need more depth.

    The mud splattering looks very good.

    I've included a few images that illustrate the above suggestions. Best of luck ;Y .

    None of these models were painted by me.

    Wow guys, thanks for all the tips and help.

    The way that guy paints really separates "Models" from "Toys". I would say my models look way more like toys.

    Thanks a bunch, I will try to get a hold of this guy, and then try to paint as well as him! But yeah, I should consider getting some foundation paints as I had to apply 5 layers of Kommando Khaki for it to show up.
