Your metals and the skulls look nice. They stand out the strongest on this figure.
The reds are looking a bit splotchy as if they didn't cover well. In the future you may want to consider starting with a medium brown base or a darker red and building up the color a bit to the brighter red. Some of the brighter reds don't cover very well.
The flesh looks like it could use some highlights. As it is now it blends in too much to the reds and also looks a bit spotty. Looks like the whole area was given a flesh wash. Maybe leave the ink was in the lower areas and lighten up the rest.
If you are going for an unhealthy "chaos" looking skin you might want to go very pale with the skin and apply a few really watered down ink washes such as purple, purple/flesh mix, green, or even red (around the edges for an "infected") to give an unhealthy palor.
Just some thoughts.
man i love seeing warhammer minatures on here
as well as agreeing with the above said i like the blood effects and the metal.
i think that you should use a bit of a lighter flesh tone as yours is kinda awkward right now. maybe you should also hilight your reds with something a little lighter as it may add more depth to the model
First what does that mean? Complaint or insult?Originally Posted by skaven102
Second i was going for tan look, as khorne is a battle, blood god, so he'd be outside, alot.

The metallics need work, they are too clean in plases for Khorne or Chaos. Other places they lack highlights and defintion, an ink wash followed by highlights in a lighter silver would surfice. The red I agree with Slorak, it is blochy in places - a darker red or brown base would work well here. The skin I feel is the worse part, you have gone for a tann look you say, but plain flesh wash over a flesh tone base is not the way. It looks rushed and not very well done. Persoanlly I would have worked up from a dark flesh tone to a slightly browny looking shade.

Sorry I wasn't in the right mind when I wrote that. As for techniques guys, I don't hang with painters to know any, so I do my best. BUT thanks for the brown base idea, it seems logical and just what I needed.
Well you are hanging with painters here in this forum. It isn't quite the same thing as being there in person but you can garnish quite a few good tips that can tremendously improve your painting. Don't be so quick to discount this valuable resource. The tools are out there you just need to practice using them.Originally Posted by LictorInTheGrass
Good luck in your edeavors.
