Im starting a biel-tan army and I would like to know the best ways to paint it
Take a look at my Iron Warriors theread to se what my paintings like
The problem with Biel-tan is that they are white... VERY white.
Spray 'em white and do thins washes of grey would be my best guess.
I was thinking of spaying them gray (gardins) and dry brushing them white. What is the best greens to use dark angels green and then lighter?
I think that Biel-tan green should be predominantly bright, like snot green. Highlighting from DA green to a strong Snot should be your aim.
Not so sure about spraying them grey. Do a test model and see how it works out.
I shod not use a normal gray, try a gray with some blue in as well. Example space wolf gray.
Donâ€™t try to dry brush a white area, it will not look good. White is a bit special and if you want to get a smooth look you have to paint the white with a few layers. If you just use one thick later to cover the gray it will look a bit messy. It will not be as fast as painting black metallic necrons, but it is a quite fast way to get a dissent white.
You can also to paint them white (spray them white first). Then wash with a gray/blue color. You will need a few lays with wash and its hard to get a really good result, but it will look better then dry brush.
As for the green, I use DA green then I mix yellow and DA green for the highlights.
As per AndEng, also it may be worth lowlighting rather than highlighting, i,e, base coat white, paint on grey shadows rather than basecoat grey and highlight.
Adding blue to the mix i always good if you want a clean looking white
Everything you have been told is a lie!
