Welcome to Librarium Online!
Since about 10 years ago when I stopped painting. Its a Genestealer, did it the Macragge colors, but did a dark brown wash on it at the end that tinted the whole thing rather darker than I anticipated. Still, I'm pretty happy with it. My back isn't what it used to be so I've been painting in 1 or 2 hour blocks, so its taken me about a week. Pretty dang slow but I'm such a perfectionist...I'm probably just going to get slower as I get more practice. haha.
I've just accumulated a ton of orcs and a few boxes of goblin units from Confrontation as well...I'm so tempted to skip the rest of the nids and start painting orcs.
Yeah, any chance of a pic?

T3h suspense is killing me!
Its not clearcoated yet but I'll try and get a pic tomorrow at work. I know a guy there who brings his digicam every day.
Its not great, but not bad for my first one in ages. I know I need to pay more attention to the mold lines on the next one. I have no idea how I would have painted it assembled with those crazy arms splayed, glad I waited to assemble till it was all painted. And I need to work on my wash technique...
I always paint before assembly, it would drive me mad to thaink I may have missed a spot because my brush can't reach it. So if you prefer there is nothing wrong with it. I personally have never filled away my mould lines but they are hardly noticable unless you are looking for them and I know they showed on some photos of my nightlords... they don't bother me, and I suppose thats all that counts... So long and the short of it is, there is nothing wrong with what you are doing ^_^
wow that really good, or at least better than i can do:rolleyes:
The teeth made me the most frustrated. I couldn't hold my hand still enough to just paint the individual teeth, not for all the coats I needed to paint over the black. The base was fun and way easier than I expected. Just some elmers glue and some sand from the sand box, and some black fish tank rocks I had layin around. I had way more turf on there at first but I thought it was overpowering so I scraped most of it back off with a sculpting tool.
The brown wash made the red a bit more mottled than I intended but I guess its a good effect for the subject model anyway. I retouched the blue highlights after the wash cause the brown wash totally muted the blues.
Thanks for the compliments.
