well you see I wanted to ask all you experienced painters out there how hard is it to paint a Black Legion Choas Marine to a tabletop standard? Also if anyone could explain the various techniques used to get a model to tabletop standard it would be greatly appreciated!
Table top quality is generally a base, with one shade, one highlight, or two highlights. You use a small palette that still looks good on your models, and is not too overpowering. Metallics are used, and NMM techniques are generally not seen. Dry brushing is used, but not overly.
Hope that helps.
yes it did thank you
Per GW, I think that the requirements for 'tabletop' quality is 3 colors or more and on proper size base. Other than that, anything goes.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. - Douglas Adams
@Radioactive - I think he means 'Table Top Quality' as viewed by most painters.
Black legion are quite easy, undercoat black, hilight the edges and add metalics. Done.
Up, up and away!
Thank you everyone for your help!
