Welcome to Librarium Online!
Like most hobbiests, I have quite the collection of little grey men that I need to paint. Some of these models are quite old and date from when I first got back into the hobby a few years back.
My painting skills weren't up to much then, but have developed some what in the intervening time since getting back into the hobby and this post. Though being a uni student does hinder the amount of painting I can do alas.
But seeing how I'm currently off uni means I've had time to paint again - huzzah!
So far I have managed to complete a unit of 4 terminators and have started on number 5 along with doing the Space Hulk Liberian. I did have the Seargeant for the first four, but he isn't finished yet.
These models were the same ones as used in my last Deathwing army but these are in a more traditional colour scheme. As opposed to white....
Aside - these pics will blow as I just took them on my phone with them places on their backs under a lamp. Will try for a better pic in a day or so.
I also need your help. I've been toying with a faster way of doing the deathwing and wonder which you like better.
This is my new way done mainly with washes and takes literally less than half the time:
And the old way:
Side by side:
New way looks darker and has a more "in the field look."
Finally some pics of my WIP librarian, Sergeant and Skaven Assassin.
With the assassin - any ideas for the back of the cloak?
C & C appreciated guys.
Me likes. Very dirty/down-to-business look on the Terminators, and the glowing eyelenses really pop out.
On the Assassin, I'd paint the cloak in only one colour. In your case I'd stick to red.
My project log: High Elves (and other stuff actually, but mainly High Elves).

Oooh no not all red on the back. I would either paint it as you have done the legs or do the cloak and legs as I did in the JQ painting competition a few months back. Start off with scorched brown with a touch of dark angels green to kill the red and then layer up to I think kommando khaki. Once done glaze the recesses with asurman blue wash watered down and build up the deep shading gradually until your happy with it
I don't have a pic of the back but you can see the method in the legs. Not the best quality pic either sorry.
