I absolutely love em!
The sorceror looks fantastic.
Great job, man!
great job, they look great.
Life is too serious to be taken seriously
These are some nice looking models, the pink look is quite good. Though is it drybrushed on the Knight's armour? Because to me it looks a little messy. One thing I have to point out is the shields, they don't fit. The bright yellow is just too glaring and out of place with the darker, dirtier pink. I would either shade it down, black/brown/flesh ink would probably do for a basic look or change it entirely.
The sorcerer, looks good. I do spy Teclis' staff as well, nice use for it. Though maybe a slanneshi symbol on one of the book pages would look better.
First off - I just wanted to say that your painting is nice and clean. Overall you have captured a unifying feel to this group of figures. Good work!
As for things that can be done to improve:
The yellow looks a bit "dirty" as if you painted it over a black base and some of the black is still showing through. A way to lessen this would be to use a light brown as a base coat color rather than black.
I would also recommend darklining between different color segments. If you use black it will appear more sharp and give it a slight cartoony look. This is fine if that is what you are looking for. Otherwise you can use a dark neutral color such as a brown to line the various areas. This will help define the different parts of the model a bit better yet still look more "natural" An area that I see could really use this - would be on the shield - basically darklining the emblem on the shield to help set it apart from the yellow on the shield.
I would recommend basing your figures before you start painting and then paint the bases as well. the raw GW sand doesn't really look convincing without being painted.
Again great job on a clean and cohesive unit.
Yeah the pink was drybrushed on. I seem to have problems getting pink to go on smoothly otherwise.
I'll definately consider toning down the shields. I made them massively bright and all at first because the unit looked very dark and uniform.
About the yellow, I did work up from browns. Is there a better way to do this, or do my paints just look a bit too thick? Much thanks for the advice
Now that I think about it - I think I know why the yellow looks out of place. Your purples and other colors are much more subdued and the yellow is very bright. If you started with brown you may not have mixed in enough with the yellows to mute them. Maybe using a bone white instead of a white for highlights would also help subdue the color. Also using a sand yellow would work well too.
I think if you went for brighter colors all around it would blend in better.
They are some really great models you have there.The armour looks great!
But the yellow really does look bad,and thick and dirty.As slorak has said it does look out of place aswell.I think you should just dish the yellow all together,it doesnt belong IMO.
Apart from the yellow its fantastic work!
I don't think the yellow should be discarded - but rather muted down in tone from the bright yellow that it is to a more sandy yellow to match the tone of the rest of the model.
Hmmm, yeah I can definately re-do the yellow. How would you guys recommend toning it down a bit? A little bleached bone and a tidbit of brown or something? Thanks,
