Welcome to Librarium Online!
So keeping a blog type thing seems to be a good way to keep yourself motivated to finish a project. So I have decided to start one up for my first set of troops in the Lamenter army I am currently in the process of painting up. Which as the title suggests is a Scout squad with three sniper rifles, a heavy bolter and a boltgun.
I have had these mini's for years and to be honest like any good scouts they have been under quite a lot of different cover/paints down through the ages. I have never actually finished painting any of them because as usual I get destracted by something else and put them away.
So without any further ado, here's what they look like now.
Now the armour is going to be yellow of course, but I am not going to do any checks on these guys, as I have read that scouts do not desplay the full chapters colours, so its only going to be bleeding hearts on the left hand shoulder pads. I am planning to do grey cloth on both the cloaks and trousers/tunics, and red weapon casings.
I realise that there might not be much to comment on at the moment, but I do hope you guys will chip in with comments/critismises because I really do want these guys to look well on a tabletop. So if anything dosen't catch your fancy, point it out to me and I'll see if I can do better.
Sounds good, but will you be stripping the models?
Maybe I should Spongebob, but at the moment I am just going to take a chance and paint over whats there, I don't think the detail is obscured on any of them.
Right I spent an hour on these guys last night, blocking in some of the base colours, mostly on the yellow armour and the cloaks and tunics. The armour is done with Vallejo Game Colour Scrofulous Brown, while the cloaks were based with Stone Wall Grey.
So my plan for this evening is to get a glaze of Sombre Grey onto the cloaks and start to do the skin. I will give that a base coat of tanned flesh.

looks good but you know that aceton removes the paint in seconds. (just remove the base first it melts otherwise)
I know Astroth, thanks for the tip though. I am going to take my chances doing it this way. The only model I am worried about having too thick paint would be the standing sniper, but even then I don't think its too noticable unless you were looking for "thick" paint.
