I've heard that when painting large areas of white on a miniature, you should first apply Bleached Bone to those areas since it sticks better to a black undercoat than Skull White. I was wondering if there was a tactic similar to this to get a nice, clean coat of Fiery Orange..
Yea maybe that, cause white is kind of a transparend color...
So I would think you are right there...
Brown is your answer.
This will work for Red, Yellow or Orange.
If you prime black, put down a base coat of a light brown color. I use Ral Parthas East Indian Brown but any light brown will work.
You get effects like this for Orange (ignore the rest of the fix, he stinks, but I managed the helmet pretty good):
Impaler Lord shot #1
Impaler Lord shot #2
Impaler Lord shot #3
Then for yellows and reds its just a question of how far over the brown you want to build up the brightness of your color like so:
Very nice models BTW !
