Hey guys. I just started modeling and painting my Malal army and want to know what you guys think. I've started out with some chosen and Im going to continue with more of them and some warriors. Ill update as I progress.
But I am definitely no pro painter or modeler. I try my best. Any constructive criticism is welcome. Ive never had my work looked at publically before so dont bite into me too bad
I would prime black and leave it at that if you're going with drybrushing for your painting technique. Drybrushing means that you're not diluting the paint like you would otherwise so any white/grey you do will go on heavily enough. Use washes to tone it back down. The new GW washes are great for a lot of purposes.
To me it looks like you're drybrushing too heavily. Are you wiping almost all the excess paint off the brushes? Wash with browns/greens/purples. You don't have to do black. The other colors will give good shading.
Are you doing a two color scheme? Half white and half black?
Ya Im going half and half. Ive got these chosen finished now I just gotta get the camera back out to take some pics. I've been getting tips at my local store and Ive been using some washes to make the white look ALOT better than it is there.
But ya Im gonna get a few pics up before I go out of town on sunday.
I hope you're not painting straight on the metal, cause the paint wont stick good, it will look horrible and be harder than it should be. Always prime with spray paint. A good undercoat saves you hours, and you pt an army on the table that you'll be proud of.
