Can i please have honest feedback on these models. Im fairly happy with the color scheme, its certinatly unique! But i want them to look more realistic. At the minute they look a little shiney!
Colors used... Ice blue drybrushed with hawk turquoise
Falcon green drybrushed with ork green.
Any feedback/advice welcomed!
Looks very nice! You might want to tone down your light sorce for photos as th pics are to bright a kind of hard to see.
Keep up the good work!
shiney? did you use hard coat by any chance? if you did, thats why there shiney. If you didnt, i dont know why you think ther shiney, they dont look like it in the pics. The color scheme is pretty cool, it has a unique factor which i havent seen before. The only 3 things i could think of improvement, is 1. mold lines, there easy to remove and really make any modle better. 2. I would paint the nails a different way. if you want pink nails you start with a pink and work your way up. 3. this is just me personally, but i would wash the teeth wit a brown ink. that way they look slimy and as if the nids havent brushed there teeth in a while. Overall they look pretty good, but with a few minor changes they can look even better

Thanks for the responses. Im removing the pink parts and am going to leave them black, mabey black and warlock purple! I see what you mean about the mould lines, to be honest id never even given them a thought! As for the ink... Ive never had luck with ink! i always end up ruining my work! I think ill just leave them bleachedbone.
Anymore comments etc are greatly welcomed!
EDIT: the shineyness is mainly on the green parts (see gaunts gun and ribs), whats a hard coat?

Thin it done lots and you'll be fineOriginally Posted by macewind
a great way to even out a models shine ( usally called flashing , not to be confused with the metal flashing that comes from molding ) is to spray the model with a uniform coat of a sealer like hard coat or polyurathane ( minwax makes a vernice water borne urathane in 3 finishes ) flat , semi and gloss .
Thought for the day: A Burning Heretic , Will brighten the Decor of any room.
If you think it's too light, then coat it in a few washes of 5:1 water to Black Ink. That would darken it up a bit and remove any shinyness.
Besides the paint job, which is quite well done, is your base. I would paint it a layer of brown paint before you base it next time, so you don't see the black in spots where the sand can't get at. For now, add a few patches of flock to hide black spots.
Regarding the shinyness: you might wanna use a dull coat spray on it... i might help, not too sure though.
Regarding the colour scheme: looks great, a little too light in my opinion, next time, try starting off with a darker base coat, it would add more depth and shading, and it will look more realistic.
Regarding the base: Never stick any material along the edge of the base, only stick sand and crap at the top. it will look so much better i promise you.
nice job and keep it up!

Thanks for the advice. Ive now not covered the side of the base (although you cant really tell) removed the pink boney parts and instead used the black/purple on them. Further comments welcomed and also for the shooty part of the biovore can anyone suggest what color?! i was thinking tentical pink but that means adding a new color and im not sure wether to just leave it black!
i love it all - exept the pink on the gaunts gun ICK! a solid (darker) pink would be worlds better!
great colors otherwise
waiting for the sunrise!
