Welcome to Librarium Online!
k i have like 60 + cadians to paint plus tanks and some storm troopers... i bought everything at once so the last week ive been assembling everything.
whats the best/quickest way of painting so many guardsmen... i dont want like god like painting ( cause i suck ) but what is the best way to wip through taht many guys?
should i paint a squad at a time? or like everyones pants first... then everyones armor... then then then....
well ive herd of may ways of paint large numbes at one time i personal paint one guy at a time so they get done to a well standered but here is a site that might help you
read these sites
if these still dont help you then but you guys in to the squad nubers that you want them in then pain them squad buy squad so you have one squad do to play with nstead of 60+ guys with there boots and pants done
If u want a city fight theme just spray paint em black, leave his armor black now and than paint is cloths gray. Black and gray city fight cloths, and of course you still got to paint the gun and face and that.
For the troopers, I suggest spraying a base coat of either your armor's final color, or the clothing's final color. (Whichever is a lighter color.) Then, you can just go over that and fill in everything else, hit the highlights if you want, etc.
For the tanks and such, look around online for scale modeling techniques and airbrushing/spraying techniques. The quickest way to paint vehicles is to base coat with the light color, and then feather on the patterns using sprayed paint and paper or cardboard as a stencil or a shield.
Here's an (not very good) idea of what I mean. There are some good pics and articles on GW for doing this on their models too if you can find them.

What's the best way to paint cadians in bright orange jumpers? My friend says spray white, then spray red, then drybrush orange.
My orange is incredibly bad at covering anything other than white, so if I was going to paint guardsmen orange I'd paint them orange first (over a white undercoat), then ink with thinned out red. You can then drybrush a little orange or yellow over to lighten them up some more. The orange I use is Blood Angels Orange in a round bottle, so it's over ten years old, I don't know how good GW's new orange is at covering, maybe your friends method could work. I'd still do it my way though :)
Jumpers are pants, right!?
No, jumpsuits.Originally posted by Pyre@Oct 28 2004, 15:33

And that method sounds kind of complicated....I've never inked before :hmm:
Maybe I should go with vallejo orange, if I can find it anywhere?
Festive, fiesta jumpsuits then!
Nothing says "Here I am! Shoot me in the face!" better than orange.
That's right. I'd much rather have the scum shot then to have them escape unseen to further infect humanity.Originally posted by Pyre@Oct 28 2004, 16:47
