I'm building a Guard army, using Kaskrin and Steel Legion minis for the assorted soldiers (Kaskrins for the Stormtroopers, Steel Legion for the Hardened Veterans). However, I'd like some pointers on painting my men.
I want to give them an urban camo scheme, but I'm not quite sure how I should go about it. The one I've got on them now is a Codex Grey undercoat with random streaks of Chaos Black and Fortress Grey, but I don't really like it.
I want them to have Codex Grey coats and Chaos Black boots and whatnot. However, I'm not sure how to highlight the coats properly. Any suggestions?
Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me.
Member of the Canadian Clan, eh.
Mech Tau Cadre: 2000 points, needs paint and magnets.
Paladins of Avalon (SW):-1500 points, needs paint.
I painted my Ork Kommandos as follows:
Basic coat of codex gray.
Little dabs/spots/lines of: white, black, and fortress gray.
Not too long, not too hard, and works very well.
The trick is to find the right patterns and amount of colors. Addind white will help too. Google some actual urban camo uniforms to have an example.
For your steel legion, my brother painted them as follows: black undercoat, black paint (to even it out), codex grey drybrush, lighter fortress grey drybrush (both using the tank brush ), and then a heavily diluted black ink coat all over to darken the model. It works really well, being simple to paint, looking good, with highlights and all.
