Ok, well ive only been painting for 8 weeks, done 3 units now, the below is in chronological order
Glade Guard x10: (not sure i want to use this theme yet)
Dryads (unit1) x10: didnt know what colours to do so i just did this for practice
Dryads (unit2) x10 : I prefer these, cleaner, with good contrast in colours
im pretty happy with the dryads now, some people gave me some advice on basing and it just compliments the models well (i also changed the basing on the first unit)
i have learnt a lot and shall be doing some more dryads and wardancers next, practicing some Non Metalic Metal currently (diving in the deep end) its quite hard, but im sure it will be worth it, im leaving all my characters and wildriders until last, when i have a better standard of painting.
our club has a tournement coming up so i want a good number of mini's done, so there should be some more images soon (providing i dont need to redo the wardancers)
Amazing even thought I don't like the color scheme for the glade guard. The face of the archer 2nd from the left is just superb. Can you post a closeup please?
to be totally honest with you maraschino i prefer the first unit of dryads its the eyes that sell them to me, not the both units arent stonking but thats just me mate, im unusual i guess :blink:
anyway keep up the great work mate hope to see more asap :yes:
edit : i reckon the glade guard would be better based on a "winter" type base perhaps pal how you do that god knows as im less experienced than you @ painting
Close ups as requested:
I can do skin much better (watch for my wardancer pics) youll see on these GG the paint is quite rough due to me not thining the paints, i used layering with the following colours Snakebiteleather > Bronzed flesh > Elf Flesh > Bleached Bone, rather than wash
Instead of doing my GladeGaurd in a winter theme and play them on green boards with white bases, ill probably change the colours, this was the first unit i did, so i was just copying them out the army book . I still got 20 unpainted, and ill phase these ones out when im doing my colour theme. Same with the Dryads, ill choose one colour set to represent my army and phase out the old ones.
skin on a Wardancer im painting
using a different technique for this skin, bronzed flesh then chestnut ink (really watered down) applying about 3-4 layers of this, then bronzed flesh hightlight > elf flesh > 50/50 elf flesh / white
its better than my GG, i should have this technique smoother after ive done a few
now to choose a colour scheme to paint the cloth + hair :cry:
