I really need help with some schemes for my imperial army ive never painted warhammer armies before but i have painted models so is there any tips you guys could give me in what to buy and what schemes to use
P.S. i would like a ice or snow type camo scheme but i dont waqnt to be too picky
It's really up to you on which army but if you really want snow/ice I recomend imperial guard you can paint them like this:
1 Paint a Fortress Grey basecoat over the fatigues.
2 Layer Skull White over the basecoat and leave grey only in the deepest recesses.
3 Using Shadow Grey, paint small triangles on top of the Skull White.
4 By using small dots of Chaos Black, you can break up the pattern even more.

ok, paint the armor with fortress grey, and paint the edges of it space wolves grey. for the fatigues, basecoat shadow grey, layer it with fortress grey, and put white blotches everywhere on the fatigues.
When I kick KHORNE'S butt I stick the remains on a KOB and eat them...
Oh man my signature sucks...
1 thing, if u get plastic spruses, paint the troops on them cos it is allot easyer. my first load of soldirs look crap, but the second lot (painted on the spruce) look OK.
If it ain't broke, break it
WARNING! If you paint on the sprues tho when you take them off they will have white spots and stuff from where you broke them off of the sprue. Also if you paint on the sprues and than glue them together you might get glue on the paint and ruin the paint. I spray black primer on the sprues, take them apart cut of the white bits, paint the white chaos black, glue together. If the primer gets ruined not that biggie. Than I just paint the visable or kinda visable spots but don't go into the nooks and crannys.
EDIT: This is why I play evil space wolfs... once ya spray paint em yer done basicly.
I suggest a compromise... This is what I do & it works well. Basecoat on the sprue (I suggest a can of Bleached Bone for your arctic color scheme). Flat paint (your basic paint scheme ) on the sprue. Take off the assorted parts & assemble carefully. Wash the fig with chaos black or fortress grey (squeeze out your brush & lift off any excess wash that's not in a place where you want it to be) & don't get too worried if you think you have too much wash as the water will take your paint into all the nooks & crannys of your fig...if it's too dark add a drop of water or pick up the excess with a dry brush & if it's too light obviously add more wash or paint to your wash. After the wash has dried touch-up your paint scheme with a little well placed brush strokes. Dry-brush the places on your fig where you want your highlights to be. Take a good hard look at your fig to see if your happy with the paint job so far. Take your time doing any small detail work on your fig as this will determine whether it'll look table-top good or table-top great. Spray with clearcoat (I suggest one with a matte finish) & base as desired. Remember... 1. Basecoat 2. Flat-paint 3. Wash 4. Dry-brush 5. Detailing 6. Clearcoat Enamel 7. Flock base
After a while you'll get into a rhythm or you can incorporate an assembly line mentality to this process...Hope this helps.
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
