working on my second set of tactical marines, so far they have been based and washed, and now i'm kind of at a loss what to do next, i pulled out my girlfriends camera to get some better ppics than my phone usually takes,
i used GW foundation paints, and the GW washes.
any suggestions would be really apprerciated
On your GF's camera have a look and see if there's a little button that has a picture of a flower on it. This enables a macro which is really useful for doing close ups on minis, will help when you post again, gives everyone a better view as to how you've done.
Good work though, keep it up.
The basic color blocking looks good, though they look like they just have a basecoat down. A dark wash over the entire figure for some shading followed up by some edging/highlighting to accentuate the high points would help give the figure some depth. A lighter colored basing material would help frame them nicely.
My next move would be highlighting. Take a slightly lighter shade of blue and make the edges of the armour a slightly lighter. If its any help there is a guide knocking around somewhere...
*goes in search*
Might help you with some aspects of the process...
thanks for that tutorial, i must have missed that one.
that gives me a good line to follow using my own paint scheme. i wasn't sure how i should build up to the final highlighting and that solves my question. even though it is showing the faces i am sure the rerst of the marine will follow similarly.
thanks again. i'll post up pics when i get them completely finished, i might even start a project thread soon :-)
