Space Wolves Termies_1.jpg
I found this photo on Ebay just today, I am liking the contrats of the (what looks to be) space wolves grey and black.
I am in the process of asking the seller if he would like to help me paint like it, but i am wondering if any of my fellow LO'ers would liek to help.
Thank you very much!

The colors you see are exactly what you get..
Bad Moons Yellow.
Space Wolves Grey.
Bolt Gun Metal.
All over a Black Primered Figure.
honestly, you coud paint that a lot better than what you see there. Just rememeber to add some highlights, and thin your paint. Both things that the other painter didn't even attempt.
thank you very much.
I am really wanting to improve my poainting and i am wondering if any one would liek to take the challenge to teach me (trhough PM's maybe) how to kinda paint teh vanguard white scar vet on pg 141 of SM codex, but wit shadow grey of space wolves grey. I know this is a big question/favor
also is there any reading materail.. i know there is a how to paint cititdel book-- any good?

That Vanguard Vet looks like an Ink-Job to me. He's just white, and then it looks like they may have used Space Wolves Grey or it's ink equivalent to slowly wash him down. Based the red with black, and either washed or just painted it up from there. The tunic/robes are just basic layering from dark-to-light.
To do it with Space Wolves Grey you could either water down your paint a LOT and just keep doing washes from white to get the sense of depth, then run an ink (I'm terrible with paint names, as I don't use GW paints) to finish it off, or start with a shade lighter than SWG and ink with a shade darker than SWG, thereby creating SWG in the midground (easiest, but less consistent)
The free-hand I can't help you with, other than to tell your to make a stencil of some type.
I've found that there's no such thing as "getting better at painting". I have yet to meet someone who painted terribly and then after practice became great. But all hope is not lost. I never said that there is no such thing as learning proper painting. Most of the bad jobs that I've seen improve, were executed by people who rushed the work. Good painting takes a long time, and uses all of the skills available. The models I'm working on right now aren't much better than Table-Top-Quality but they're my best models so far. The difference is that I'm using inking, drybrushing, glazing, and washing all together. It improved the 'quality' of my painting by leagues. I'll never be a Golden-Daemon winner, no matter how hard I try. But I can absolutely paint better than several people in my shop, just because I take the time to sit down and do it correctly.

Or am I missing another picture somewhere?
