Just wondering what anyone thought of my paint scheme.
The idea is basically, one side silver one side red, and black in-between to separate the differences, obviously its not done, and my camera sucks something fierce, but the general idea is there hopefully.
I personally think it looks bold and stands out because of the abundance of black.
Also, I will eventually be picking out details like chains and stuff in silver, just not yet as I want the defiler done first.
I like the scheme except how metalic and shiny the silver is maybe you could dull it down (if you agree with me). But other than that I like it.
I used to be superbock, if anyone cares.
Initially ( my new favourite word ) my terms were done with boltgun metal, and it seemed almost too dull. like it just looks like a watered down grey color. i really wanted the space marines to stand out.
I really like the scheme, and it's very different and stands out. Maybe you could add some rust effects with some Chestnut Ink to the metallic side to make it look less shiny and more chaosey. Here's a link of what I'm talking about with the rusty metal.
That link didnt work my stupid net is so screwed from viruses AND i'm capped.
But I was thinking about maybe some shining gold in there somewhere, just to highlight guns and some joints maybe?
The silver being bright isn't that much of a problem. I think that it lacks any kind of shading is the problem. You should try to get some dark brown ink and apply a wash over the metal parts on your models. The result may darked them a little but it will make the details stand out alot more. It is also quick and easy.
Is ink a special kind of color/paint? or is it just like using a bit of water with the paint?
You can pick up ink from the same stand you buy your GW paints from. For ink, water it down and add a drop of white glue or soap, which prevents the ink from bunching up (leaving a lot of little spots when it dries). You can also water down your paint a lot (between 8-10 parts water for every part paint) and wash with that to get shading effects.
That looks alright man, yes, the metal should be rusted, and the painting could be a bit better.
But it's a good scheme, and you're only starting out, sorta.
Yeah, they look alright.
Ink washes will do wonders to bring out the details in the armor. Possible a watered-down black ink, that would also sorta give it a link to the black armor.
And about the black armor, I dunno if its just me, but I have a problem with plain black. I need to highlight it with grey or something. You could try that too, probably make it look more battle-hardened.
