Hey all, have been buying / building most of my army and decided to post some pics of what I had painted so far. The goal was a battle worn look, with some unique colour combination. Comments welcome =)
Maybe I can justify the colours more. This is a renegade chaos group that has been battling on a lush jungle planet. Thus, these folks have changed their cult colours, to cope with the jungle environn. (I'll write up more "fluff" for this chapter another time)
Khorne berserker Champion and some zerkers

Nicely done, look a bit Nurgle-y to be Zerkers, but to each his own, I suppose.
Well done in any case.
thanks Lupercal, I wanted to stay away from the cookie-cutter schemes. These colour styles will be used across the whole army, and each different type of unit will have it's own unique flare - and trust me.. my plague marines will be VERY nurgle-y =)
Ok, so putresent green is usually the domain of nurgle... however, the green is sorta refereshing to see used. I like the green. the models show a healthy use of washes that seem to show some nice depth on the armor. The glossy highlights no doubt come from some type of varnish = protection. to each his own, but most painters want to downplay the gloss by hitting the figs with a matte finish. that being said, a nice gloss will protect the fig better in the long run.
KhlauKolash, thanks, I really didn't want to use the varnish on the models, but the dark colours pop so much more with the varnish. Also, when I tipped over my champion (metal model), it chipped him instantly. Is there a matte finish that can offer the same protection that the varnish can?

I gotta say that when I first saw these images I thought "damn, this is pretty good for a "new painter". very good and clean job man, you stay within lines and have nice thin coats.
I gotta be harsh on the cloak though, it...sucks! The good thing about it though is that it looks very worn out, torn, wraith-like. So if that's the look you wanted, you succeeded. I'd personally like a smoother cloak.
But good job!
haha, thanks for the comments. I wanted everything to look rough, rugged and raw; like these evil bastards have been left to fight on their planet with no supplies, no new clothes =-)
Ok, if that is the look you were going for, then you got it. I would say that the cloak is a bit rough. Even for "overbrushing" there is a lot of paint on that brush. Drybrushing would take a fraction of that paint in multiple passes to get the effect. there are some great tutorials on GW website on blending and weathering.
Even if they are in a jungle environment, Khorne Berzerkers revel in hand-to-hand combat, and wouldn't use camouflage.
