i'm working on my fire warriors at the moment but i'm having some problems with the thin lines that between the armor and on top of the helmet , any ideas , not sure if i should try an ink or maybe a small fina black line
its depends on what couler your tau are if i was you id do the lines in a darker couler and hightlight arownd it if you get what i mean
"Mr. Cypher please come out from underneath the table, the Dark Angels are not out to get you."
Use acrylic Gel Retarder (from an artists materials shop) mixed with some dark ink (like chestnut or brown if you were painting the classic Vomit Brown Tau coulour scheme) and the lines effectively paint themselves.
See my post here.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
that Acrylic stuff is amazing , thx alot now i can finally do all those though places and small lines ,
i would never use ink for that, unless you want to make your firewarriors look like they just came out of a pool....if you want to use the inking method make your own with some chaos black and water it dries without the normal shine of a ink. For Hard Aun's method ive never tried it, and it sounds like it works well enough, but from what i read it sounds a little unpredictable. id go for the simplest method with a REALLY fine tipped brush and some chaos Black, or Scortched brown(with a little water) depending on your color scheme and just dont sneeze. (its happened before )

Using inks is fine. If you don't want the shine one thing you can do is spray it with a flat varnish such as testors dullcote. This will get rid of the shine.Originally Posted by _Toast_

You can also try mixing a few drops of black ink with a 50/50 Future Floor Wax/water solution. The solution breaks the surface tension of the ink and makes it flow into crevices (like the armor lines on a Tau helmet). The end result is shiny but a quick spray of dullcote fixes that.
