As title really, I've toyed with the idea of doing an army (now a squad) of Imperial Fists for ages, but the difficulty in painting yellow (even after trying several methods and doing several test models, all of which i either mucked up or just plain didn't like) has always put me off the idea.
Anyway, with the release of the new paints and my friend also doing Imperial fists and saying they're pretty easy, I was wondering if I could get some extra advice
Base Yellow again to hilight.
Extreme hilight with one of the layer paint yellows if you like edge hilighting.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
Just to point out that if you undercoat white you will find it very hard to cover the model without leaving tiny white bits, I find undercoat black to be better. Also the easiest way of painting a space marine yellow is just to use the yellow shade after a white undercoat. Look at the new painting guide/last months white dwarf for an example (eldar guardian).
Thank you for the replies =)
As it happens I already have a squad ready to paint, except they have a black undercoat. - That's not really much of an issue to me, as I don't want really bright IFs - bright enough to stand out, but not so bright that it takes 12 coats of yellow to do it... I have my limits on patience...
As a matter of interest what was that white dwarf issue number? I don't really want to have to buy it for 1 article (never have subscribed/bought one...never will =P ) - so I'll just do some diggin' on the internet to find it. (the article anyway)
- on a more general note, have any of you used the new paints? (if possibly the yellows specifically, but if not, any colours) - what did you think of them? Better than the old ones?
