So, anyone tried speedpainting guardsmen? My new army will have a 'few' of 'em in it, and I'm not that big fan of painting.
I thought about white primer, slam basecoats and the wash with Devlan Mud. What do you think?
If you know a good tutorial or so, let me know please : )
Well a fairly quick way to do them is knarloc green for the armour bits, deneb stone for the cloth parts, then wash everything with devlon mud. do the face and hands with talarn and wash with ogryn flesh, thenpaint the gun black, or red, or however you want it, it's very quick, and leaves you with a good result, and if you want to do a little extra, go back and highlight the clothing with deneb stone again, and the armour with knarloc green.
Have fun with all them guardsmen
Agree with the above.
Go with a black primer though. The white will give you trouble if you're trying to go fast. If you go with foundation Dheneb for the cloth it'll cover just fine over black. The normal greens have pretty good coverage so you could use whichever you wanted in there.
Guess I'll need to go and pick up a new primer and some paints, thanks lads.
pete is right you definitely don't want to 'speed paint' over white primer. White forces you to be very honest about getting a solid even coat in every nook and cranny.
What I might suggest as an intermediate for a brightly colored model is to prime white and then wash it in full strength badab black head to toe before painting.
