I havent painted mini's in about 8 years, and back then i was pretty terrible...really terrible.
These are not done, just primed and first coat of green. Let me know what you think, im using really cheap craft paints at the moment, i plan on buying some nicer paints soon and maybe ill redo them then, im just trying to work on brush technique , shading, highlighting, etc right now.
I'm going for the "purge" chapter of chaos marines, which can be found here:Warhammer 40,000 - Chaos Space Marines
I plan on getting green stuff, and making these a LOT more nurgly in the coming weeks, i just dont have the stuff right now.
I'm really confused by what the flames/smoke/air channels are supposed to be on the bottom of the models. They are not coming from the jet packs, so i dont think they are flames, etc, who knows though.

thanks for any feedback or tips you may have! Again, please be gentle, and remember these are not finished =P
They are indeed nice and clean...but as they also are Nugloids it's not only a positive remark
I think you've done quite good this far, a couple of pointers though:
THe paint you use should be a little thinner -ie more water less paint.
When Drybrushing make sure your brush is dryer than it's been this far, it'll take a bit longer but the metallic parts will look far better and less cloggy.
Give the green areas a quite dark, yet very thin (more layer is to prefer) wash of brown/black paint. A wash is just paint with lots of water. Whipe of excesspaint on flat areas.
I'm looking forward to seeing more pics on your progress.
Hey mate, these are looking nice.
On your next model(s), try picking out some of the detail with different colours. For example, the skull on the back of the jetpack (in bone or white), the eyes of the marine (in red), the pipes (bronze or gold) and other details you can easily find.
This way, you'll improve your accuracy with a paintbrush and make your models look sharp at the same time.
Painting minis is a fun, rewarding hobby - but it also requires patience and a willingness to improve. You've made a fantastic start
what am I, the pope?
Very nice, I too saw The Purged and was like "ohh" but I already have Iron Warriors so..
Keep it up!
It's been a minute.
I like the green, it's a really green. If you dry brushed the metal on, you did a really clean job of it.

a question that sometimes drives me hazy: am i or are the others crazy? ~ albert einstein
Yeah one more coat of green would do it and small pictures from now too, like 2/3 of those sizes would be fine.
you want another coat of green? i thought it was pretty thick already.
and the pic sizes are just the default resolution that my camera takes, my browser resizes them automatically, and i think most people that use firefox get that benefit too. Its really annoying to resize a lot of pics and it gives a very good bit of detail if you zoom in. Places like photobucket and imageshack shrink your pics and you lose a lot of detail.
thanks for the tips everyone, im going to paint the squad and put details on and ill update then.
Is it just me or does that metallic color look really bright? It's too sparkly, looks like you dipped the model in glitter or something. Doesn't look like real metal.
Besides that, it looks good. I love the Purge color scheme and glad to see somebody painting an army like that.
