Ok, well atm ive seen alot of people put mini's out on the tables which have an inch thick coat of green etc and they take them an hour, and they call them 'dark angels' When they look more like blobs of slime.
To make a model looks respectable, and you suck at painting, Its usually reccomended you start with a black basecoat, then paint a watered down dark version of the colour you want the model. Then Drybrush a lighter version, then a lighter version again. Then give it a wash of the original basecoat colour (very thin). You already have a good overall colour scheme if you did this right, just add a few details. There is no reason to put unbearably thickly painted ugly space marines on the table when you can do this.
Anyone can do this as a drybrush requires 0% accuracy, and 0% patients.
It will also take 10 mins or so a model
lets see some pics if ya got any... like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and you've got like 100 there. :huh:
The Pics i have arent really close enough, We havea very large local gaming club here on wednesday so ill see if i can nab a digi cam there.
Would only take u 5 or 10 misn to try urself. But there again since when has following a painting guide ever worked
I would say that DA are probably an easy army to paint.
Basecoat: DA Green
Drybrush: 75/25 Snot Green/DA Green
Highlight: Snot Green
There. Simple, yet effective. ^_^
What would the best way to paint a BA army. Oh and this post helped my bro a lot (who plays DA).
You could either start from a dark red and work up, or undercoat red and do red ink. That's the easy way.
What would be a fast way to paint my BA, but have them look great.
my GF paints BA fast and efective.
Base coat white
Blood angels red sprey
Ink wash red
black in the joints, black eyes
Black with a drybrish of bolt gun metal on any silver areas
Then spend as much time picking out details as you want.
The back packs are normaly primed black with just a little work.
depending on the finishing sprey they can have a high gloss look to them or a nice dulled shine.
Cool. I'll have to try that. I just don't wanna buy the spray paint.
