I am currently in the process of assembling my Chaos Daemons army which will be a slow but ultimately worthwhile process. I am fairly confident in my painting skills for Nurgle daemons, as I am starting to become very adept at drybrushing, though painting smooth and even highlight lines are something i need to work on... With that in mind, I currently have 10 bloodletters to paint before the parts to my next major project (winged nurgle daemon prince) comes in from direct order.
I need advice on what colors to use to paint them and what tequniques to use. I currently test painted one using a black prime, scarab red base, and layered highlights of gore red, blood red, blazing orange, and finally bleached bone. Though alright, it still seems very dark. I have yet to try painting the hellblade as I cannot do straight line highlights for the life of me.
Please and thank you for all advice given.
My first suggestion would be swap the black undercoat for white. Then do exactly as you did before. Sounds like you know what you're doing though.
I like to pride myself on the fact that I've been painting non stop for a year since starting 40k and am now one of the 'better' (term used loosely) painters at my store.
But dear lord some of the guys could work for GW they are that good.
Keep the paint diluted and thin :)
(first rule in Zentradis book of painting)
Try using less paint on the brush. You will find the smaller highlights are easier that way. If you are doing the edge of something try to use the side of your brush not the tip. The side may give you some extra contol, fancy painting is all about control.
Ok here are 2 views of my black prime bloodletter. Dark, grim, simple, and effective. Yes i think the scheme is growing on me. Critiques are always welcome, its how i learn.
I like the pics you just put up, the sword looks nice and a few other small details made it look nice without looking too difficult to do if you have to paint a lot.
