    Camo paint jobs?

    I was just wondering, since I've seen so many pictures of other peoples tanks and skimmers and such with these, not to complicated, camo patterns. And I was wondering how you go about doing them?

    Because I've experimented with a leman russ free hand camo and it is horrific. Anyone know how I can get me some sweet looking camo on my stuff.

    Time is no big deal, I am currently painting individual soldiers in pieces before assembling them, so I don't mind if it takes a while to get it right.

    I've free handed mine on. Generally instead of free handing the color you want as your camo I'll just take a small brush and create an outline with a color like chaos black while looking at a pattern I want to copy like off one of the old battleforce boxes or the codex.
    Then I would just color in the areas outlined with the colors I wanted and makes sure I covered the black outlines themselves. Sort of like you would do with a coloring book I guess.

    I dunno if that helps or gives you some sort of idea. Hope I helped somewhat, gl

    Wow, thank you, that sounds like a really easy solution, I have a problem with always doing everything the most complicated way possible, lol

    Personally I painted my mechanised guard army with a GW airbrush and washes. I went with dheneb stone all over, then wide, curvey shapes in scab red. Then washed the whole thing in devlan mud a couple of times and outlined the edge of the red with chaos black.

    Took hardly any time as I did it for 15 vehicles in one go, and came out brilliant.

    My camo scheme is drab green and brown and this is how i go about it.

    Undercoat black,
    Coat of green,
    Drybrush up to the required shade of green (mixing up to the lightest etc),
    Outline areas of camo striping in brown,
    fill these in,
    drybrush to required shade.

    I find if you outline camo areas in another colour then the edges of the camo areas can look too dark, and therefore odd (as I paint over the green). I find it best to stick to either stripes of camo, (diagnally across the model), or small double dashes. Zigzag schemes and such have always eluded me lol...

    Hope this helps.
