Welcome to Librarium Online!
I see a couple spots where the gold looks richer or fuller on the edges than the inside. and I feel you should have gone for a more striking color to contrast it such as a deeper blue.
But I'm picky and it is a job well done

yeah, the problem is gold is a hard color to work with, the pigments are shiny, and if u spread it to think u jsut see threw to the black primer underneath, it sucks, so technicly id have to layer it like 3 times, its a B**** so i jsut did one layer, its some wat patchy but its not to bad , dephently table top when u look at it from table view, but yeaeh up close its pret patchy, im jsut so lazy on Vechs, its jsut a realy maticulouse Vech, some are easyer, but this one just, a mahahasg *pulls hair out*, but i think i made up by making a scenic base!:w00t:
You know, when you buy an expensive resin model, then you ought make the paintjob so that it does justice to the model. The scenic base doesn't look like much to me either.
so way use black primer? I always use Colors like Yellow Gold as first coat after I use white primer. Then I wash the gold to get a darker look (flesh wash or something like that).Originally Posted by TheNightLord Z
Hmm, OK I am not overly impressed with the mini for a number of reasons which I will come on to: Fisrtly though you seem to have some understanding, my minimum layers for gold is 4 and mostly 6+
You also clealy can paint (which is partly why I am unimpressed) as the lines are neat and the base has some relly nice blending and paintwork components to it, so why I am unimpressed:
as above, you seem to have put more work into the base than the mini.
The blue is too bright and could use some work
You have already admitted that the gold was lazy
That said, it is certainly up to or better than most of the armies I face
Everything you have been told is a lie!
You should work more with it. If you ink and highlight the gold, it will look so much better. Ink the blue parts darker and drybrush very lightly over with a brighter color. You should also consider painting a lightning pattern. Good luck, don't take the critizism as something bad, we're here to help you!

rather than paint the straight gold onto black why not in future paint a different metalic on as a base colour.
for a bright gold look i paint mithril silver on first.
for a darker gold i paint tin bitz/ dwarf bronze on first.

Cheredanine, haha thnx LOL yeah, i totaly know i can do better, i just got so...lazy and i had like 4 hours to paint it and then i ahd HW and a test the next day(today as i post this) and....meh, but i mean its not like i totaly killed the model because i can totaly go back and touch it up, il probly take all your guys advice, il go back and darken and thcken the gold, and maybe later make a beter base if u realy hate it ( i can detach it threw a magnet system, *o and add lightning*... so that was basicly jsut a quicky job to be able to play with it, and later il make it better
*:tongue: alright guys, then il show you the betta version later*
I think you shod stay away from dry brush.
Any way the base looks fine, maybe a little flat? You donâ€™t need to build a new base. Maybe some high differences in the ground.
