So my question is this has anyone tried painting and drawing tatoos on thier minis or giving them warpaint?
I've only done two minis with some freehand one in on a chaos warrior and its just some simple chaos symbols on his helm then other is on the banner of my aspiring champion standard barer, and I am gogin to attempt tatoos and warpaint on my marauders again just symple symbles and may be some tribal designs
So how would you all go about doing war paint?
What colors would you use and why?
I have painted some of my minis with warpaint. For example, my chaplain has a skull painted on his face:
For warpaint, I would use blues, greens and the like.
Marion: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.
For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
I have one tip that I use a lots of times.
If you are painting a tattoo, donâ€™t take to much time on the highlight of the skin. First just paint the skin color then us a wash. After this paint the tattoo, most of the time something go wrong and you have to do some corrections with white. After your tattoo is don finish your flesh with highlights.
Now do you highlight right over the tatoo? :unsure:
and for watrpaints should I mix a bit of my skin tone color to the warpaint color?
Hehe. I don’t highlight over the tattoo, I highlight around. I find this more easy as I often draw my tattoo a bit wrong and have to correct it some... If you always paint your Tattoos correctly you can just paint over the highlights, but if you miss you have to do the highlights all over agene.Originally Posted by faolI don’t think you have to do that, but highlight the tattoo some as well. I dont know what “watrpaint” is I never us it, if I paint a Black Tattoo, I highlight it with some dark blue.Originally Posted by faol
Edit: because of some Qute mistakes...
