Ok with my new dwarves i have to paint chainmail, i just CANT do it. On the pictures in the army book you can still see the black base coat in the small holes. Now when i paint my chainmail i keep getting paint in those little circles. I cant keep the paint on the ring.
Any tips/help you could give me will be greatly appreciated.
Watty, thanks in advance.
How do you paint yours?
I use two methods, one is to drybrush the metal on. As long as you have removed enough paint from the brush it's quite simple. Drybrush 1/1 chaos black and boltgun metal--->Drybrush boltgun metal--->drybrush chainmail on lightly---> Do a very light drybrush of mithril silver.
Sometimes washing them can give me a good effect. Paint the entire chainmail surface with boltgun metal--->Wash it with black ink--->Drybrush with chainmail---> Lightly drybrush mithril silver.
I hope this helps. If it still happens, perhaps you could take a picture to better see your results ;Y
ok thanks mate, i tried it and it looks really good
Good to hear! 8Y Which method did you use?
i drybrushed, btw do you know anything about highlighting beards?
Beards; I like to basecoat, add two drybrushes and do an ink to bring some depth in.
Bestial brown, vermin brown, snakebite leather, chessnut ink; that'll do it nicely although you can change the paints so long as you keep getting lighter.
Up, up and away!
Glad to hear Inquisitor Blackadder's advice worked for you!
I suck at drybrushing - i can blend wetblend and glaze but can I dry brush? Like a deranged money I can drybrush.
My method usually involves (applies to beards as well) painting a solid colour then washing it in the recesses then using the edge of my brush to pick out the raised bits and this is quite wet. Then i highlight a couple of areas that are usually seen prominently in a shade or two lighter for contrast.
