    Inquisitorial Stormtroopers

    Stormtrooper SquadI painted this squad on commission and realized I don't like doing commission work. First, I have enough of my own stuff I really want to paint. Second, I am having issues with painting something then giving it back. I want to keep them!

    This was the first time I have used Microset AND Microsol for the decals. I'll post another article about that tomorrow.

    Here are the pics:

    Look great, I would feel your pain at having to give them back!

    I look forward to hearing how those decals came out, I'm using them a lot recently.

    I like the scheme. They look very military-ish. And i feel your pain on the commissions. I have been doing it for a long while and I still feel pangs of regret every now and then when I have to turn over something that I particularly like.

    Awesome job. I like the scheme and the power weapon on the sergeant looks good. Of all the IG models those are my favorite.

    The armor was painted boltgun metal, then washed with badab black, then dry brushed with mithril silver.

    I use A LOT of wash. It forgives a lot of mistakes and is a heck of a lot easier than mixing and layering paint.

    May painting steps are simple:

    1 - Prime
    2 - Hit all the colors you want, starting with the lowest level of the model and ending with the highest. In this case, the lowest lever of the model is the clothes. This is done with a big brush.
    3 - Go back and touch up my many mistakes with a finer brush.
    4 - Do the eyeballs (if there are any)
    5 - Wash, wash, and wash. Black on uniforms and brown on skin.
    6 - Decals
    7 - Drybrush

    It's not the quickest method, but it's certainly not the slowest. I paint in batches, so it's hard to say how much time I spent on a single model. This squad didn't take me more than 10 hours though.
