So I started my first 40k army as IG with allied Grey Knights and I've gotten a fair ways painting them all up. I've posted a few images before and also have asked for painting advice.
So using all of the help I've gotten and just winging it I decided to go nuts and see what I could do with and IG sergeant. I'll post more of the army, but I have very little time during the week to paint (damn work schedule and summer school).
I think this is probably one of the best models I've ever painted. Never really tried this style before, I really like how it turned out.
Oh, anyone have any advice for how to paint eyes without getting paint everywhere it should be? I'm having issues not making him look like some mutant with beady white eyes.
Ignore the piece of grass on his noggin, didn't realize it was there until after I uploaded the images. :p
Good work. There are a couple of pointers I can illicit if you don't mind.
Firstly, there is a bit of paint going 'over-the-lines' as it were. For instance, the face has a bit of 'hair paint' on the forehead. And the chain sword handle has some hand 'flesh paint' on it.
Secondly, you can make narrow extreme highlights by using a few methods (and combiations thereof) for the armour. One is by using a fine brush to draw the line. Another is to use a sort of 'dry brush' edge of the brush method. And another is to go back over the centre bits with a darker colour leaving the edge alone.
Finally, the eyes, just use a very fine point to dot the eyes! That's how i do it.

Sweet, thanks for the pointers. Still touch ups to do on the guy, but I haven't tried actually going and detailing a model quite to this extent.
C&C is always welcome.
