you need to link it from an uploading wbsite for us to see it. Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket or imageshack.com works well.

Looks like you've done the tassles and some other metallic areas by painting the raised parts and leaving the black basecoat showing? You'll get better results by painting it solid and then using some washes. It's also a good deal faster when doing entire regiments! I used to just leave black coat showing in the recesses, then this forum taught me the gospel of the Future Floor wax. Only thing I still do by leaving the black showing is chainmail.
Actually I like him the way he is... He is showing something very heroic and dark...
I like him and I would like to see more of your work! :yes:
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Not bad Not bad at all. There are a few stray paint marks(I pick these things up after looking at and painting models for the last 8 years) and somethings like the metal I would have done differently, but its a solid paintjob and looks like hes ready to kick some eldar ass. Practice more and your figures could get to that White Dwraft level of kickassness
thank u! i apreciate you comments and help! i am starting a necron army so i can work on my painting of the metal any suggestions? usually i blackbase coat and drybrush the colors over is there a better way to do metal?
Well, from your lovely Commissar (how about that for a paradox? ) I think you could do well to make sure the brush is just a little more dry before you start drybrushing.
I also found it works well to first drybrush like you said, but then give it a brown/black wash and let it dry really well. Then have another go with the dry brush, maybe mix in a little Mithril for the edges.
