Here are the first few pictures...
Looking good, I like your paladin he looks really nice, but perhaps another layer of paint, its just in some spots its come out a bit transparent, or maybe a grey undercoat?
still, looking forward to more knights being completed, and deffinently those Errant boys!
Thanks for the reply's i know what you mean with the whight but its notouriously hard to paint...
so I keep on layering till I get a strong coulour...
Im of on holiday tomorow so i will hopefully get some painting done i will post pictures when im back...
Now for my lord i want something a bit special im planing on converting the Valten exsalted on sigmar mini with a lance and some sheilds on the flanks of the horse...
and im not buying Grail knights! I will convert them... not sure how yet...
as for the yeomen I plan on buying the pistolier box and a militia box and makeing them out of those kits...
I will also make some questing Knights...
But any more ideas would be aprichiated i found a great tutorial on how to make a trebuchet out of wood witch I might use...
I think you need to water your paints down a bit more. It looks a bit thick in places, multiple thin layers is ultimately better than a single thick one. You have chosen a few colours that are hard to do well - yellow and white for example. You are always better off with a base colour before starting with the one you want to do. So for yellow I would start with either the yellow foundation colour or a brown base, then start adding in yellow to the mix slowly and build it up.
Take a little more care and these will be some good looking minis.
Thanks for the tips would snakebite leather be a good bace for yellow?
and yes i look on the pictures and the paint does look a little thick. Pictures show of the least favourable parts of your mini's...
but yea im on holiday in half an hour so no more updates for a few days. I will hopefully have finished the BsB by the time im back.
Try out P3 paints they go on like they are half way between foundation and normal citidel paints.
and as Kuffy said try for a dark Base coat and work up the colours on highlights.
