Hi. I'm a 40K n00b who just bought my first set of miniatures (Plague Marines), and am quite looking forward to painting them. I haven't settled on a colour scheme as yet, and these are the first miniatures I've painted generally, so any suggestions and advice would be most welcome.
I also play a little bit, using borrowed figurines at the moment, and am hoping to build up a small army of Death Guard/Nurglite Space Marines. Again, ideas or suggestions would be welcome.
Heyo de hoi-hoi. Welcome to the insane bubbling pit of madness that we locals here like to call LO.
Enjoy the forums, feel free to drop me a PM if you have any questions etc (Disclaimer: I don't have super-awesome Mod-powers, so I can't guarantee a solution), anything else you may expect in a formal greeting and etc etc etc.
Good on you for using proxies to begin with, a great example of "try before you buy", if this is the first time you're collecting, I'd suggest starting out small. It's amazing how fast your collection can grow sometimes.
Painting, in my experience, I've found that a broader palette actually makes for much better figures. We see this example so eloquently by looking at the LOTR Durins Dwarves. They are real well painted, but only look so-so because the painters used a few flat colours.
Hope this helped, and once more, welcome to LO.
