Alright here is my latest work! I included a picture of all the paint i used and of my unfinsihed drednaught, which i need help painting. The reason being is that it has streak marks left behind from the paintbrush no matter what i do. Well here they are i hope you like.
P.S. I will drill out their weapons when i have the tools at them moment im still trying to find the right tools.
That lot work well as Dark angels. I think that the effect you have is that they look very dark and gothic which suits Dark angels. I do find that GW's dark angels are often a little too clean looking. I would suggest that you add a little blood red to the eyes to make them look more menacing.
Thanks! And i will add the blood red. Also can you help me out with my drednaught? I really do not like the streak lines and would in genral like some help on painting vehicles. Is there any touturial you might be able to point me to for that?
I too like your dark style of painting. It makes them look very dark and secretive, which is how DA should look.
I think your models would definetly benefit from some basing and just a little tidying up here and there.
Are you drybrushing your armour? I think they'd look better if you put a highlight over it just to bring out some detail.
For the vehicles, do not drybrush them, the large flat panels do not lend them selves to drybrushing. Instead, do 2-3 thin coats of Dark Angels Green ( i'm assuming that's what you're using ) and wait for them to dry completely before starting the next coat. Do this until you get a solid colour.
Using a large brush helps because it will take less passes with the brush to get the colour on and also reduce the brush strokes ( if any).
Rep for you.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
I do big areas of green on my vehicles too. Thankfully it's one of the easiest colors to get looking smooth. If you do a basecoat that's slightly thinner than what you have there, let it dry, then apply a more watered down coat. That's usually all I need for green, but you can keep adding a bit more water for 3rd and 4th coats if they're needed. That'll get it nice and smooth.
It's hard to say exactly how much paint to water you need since it's different for every color, but you'll get the hang of it. My first coat is usually the "milky" consistency that everyone mentions, and the progressivly thinner coats should be more and more transparent on your pallet.
Hopefully that helps.
