Its something that I have only just recently started doing in the last five years or so.
As far as I can see the GW display model painters tend not to do it but to my mind eyebrows are a pretty important visual point on any face and often faces on minis look a lot better and more realistic with them.
So do you paint eyebrows or not?
I find it a little too fiddly to paint on eyebrows, they're lucky if they get eyes :) Space marines hardly have hair anyway and it would be impossible on my Cadians so I don't have to bother.
orks dont have 'em...so that wuz easy....
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
My SoB - eyebrows = fine
This is usually the case except for the Living Saint in which case it's nice to spend that extra time with her.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
eye brows sound like a good thing to do....how hard is it t paint em for someone who hasnt painted any minis b4
i try..sometimes it doesn't work out.I'm not that good at painting very small details yet,so must of them don't have any facial features.
Too hard to try. They must be very, very fine or will make the miniature look like a hooker.how hard is it t paint em for someone who hasnt painted any minis b4
I'm going to try them very soon, though. A thin line of Chaos Black should be enough.
i have never really thought about but rank and file faces dont get eyes either so not really a point for me

Its not hard really, assuming you put your lightest flesh highlight on the ridge of the nose, the top of the brows and the upper lip and normally put the second lightest flesh highlight on the cheekbones and the fronts of the brow.
Then using a stroke of a colour slightly lighter than the colour you envisage their hair to be put a thin but fuzzy line between top and 2nd highlight on the brows but down onto the 2nd highlight rather than up onto the first.
If that makes sense?
Actually the thickness of eybrow isn't too critical, if you look at people around you some people have really thick bushy brows and its a major feature of their face.
I'm actually just looking at a Forgeworld miniature here infront of me now and I just have to love this resin stuff, the detail it is capable of holding is just so immense its worth the few extra shekels it costs. This mini has eyebrows moulded on and I swear even at 28mil I can see individual tiny hairs.
