    Delaque Gang using Urban Camo, WIP, Training thread.

    Hello Gents (and occasional lady),

    I have decided to paint up my brand new Necromunda gang. The models are from Heresy ( Heresy - multi-part fantasy miniatures for your dungeon ).

    And some Pictures so you know where we are going with this.






    And the guy who we shall paint first, the experiment if you will....



    Now some of you may have noticed the use of WE above. As in "we are going to paint this"... How so?

    Because I am no artist. I am more of an engineer.

    I can make quite competent terrain....



    But my painting is.... not inspired....

    So my plan is I am going to paint this gang. And you, the LO painting community can help me... If you want to....

    The parts that are definite are... Black boots, Urban camo pants, Black holsters, various muted colours for the belt accessories, silver clips on the belts/straps, pasty complexion for the skin (delaque), Black glasses, gold earrings and necklaces. And on this pose only, black shirt - all the rest have bare chests......!

    The bit I am still debating is the coats. I was going to go straight black outside and deep red lining, but continuing the urban camo on the outside is appealing.... Or would this make it too complex or "busy" looking?

    Tha camo I was looking at is kinda like this http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/..._Flight_lg.jpg - Thanks to Sparta06 for finding this. It looks like white, light grey, dark grey, black..

    I will try to do one stage per week, to keep my interest up and so this does not drag out all year.

    Now first step (unless anyone objects) - Paint boots, shirt, holsters, glasses chaos black - pants skull white, skin bronzed flesh, earring and necklace burnished gold..

    Those are excellent models.
    And that is very nice terrain. Wish i could make stuff like that.
    I painted a much simpler scheme on my Guard.
    Basically I sprayed the Black
    Painted face and fingers Tallarn flesh.
    Painted Armour Adeptus Battlegrey, then paint Astronimican Grey patches over that. I found if I painted more on than that, it actually detracted from the scheme.
    Next is Catachan Green for water bottles, knife sheats, lasgun, etc.
    Then some small details in white and red and exposed metal in boltgun metal.

    A black coat might make them too dull. But the light brown Delaque are usually seen in probably doesn't match the camo scheme.
    You could try the base grey for the coats, no camo scheme on it. That might work.

    Good luck anyway

    Very nice looking models, how do they compare size wise to the GW figures?

    Update.

    Well I have done as I said I would (and a butt load faster than I thought I would...)

    This is where I am up to now.

    [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    I must say that when you blow up the size of your models two hundred times, your painting looks two hundred times worse!

    I painted the coat and pants with a slightly watered down skull white. Then I added random straight edged blocks all over in shadow grey - in tried to stop where the seams on the clothes would be. I also carried the pattern over to the inside slightly, I will add a deep red (or black) lining ( like a real trenchcoat) later...

    Next step, add more random blocks of codex grey to the coat....

    What I need advice with is what to highlight the face with? And should I even attempt to highlight the coat?

    @ Ash - These are made for 28mm heroic. Best place for gauging this is at Heresy - multi-part fantasy miniatures for your dungeon

    Alrighty.

    Finished the "splinter" camo and got a bit carried away. And did the typical lets-paint-the-guys-in-trenchcoats-black thing, also found another one one these models and decided to do a combination blotch/leopard spot camo pattern.

    As much as everyone else has done it, I still like the black.....



    Opinions please - not of the painting (its crap and I know it) what should I go with for the rest of the gang?
