    First finished squad ever

    Hey everyone. just thought id post pics of the first squad i ever finished, assembling and painting. I didnt want to do too much detail on them cause they were mainly practice so i could get a feel for painting. But i was pretty pleased with them. Pretty basic but here are the pics I tried to unify the squad by having the left shoulder pads gold and the right ones chainmail. I didnt use any washes or inks on them cause they were only basic practice.

    Chaos Warriors

    Spot on!
    I also love the old Chaos Warriors. I've got about 50 of them, although I used coloured armour with metallic trim.
    The beauty of what you've done is that you have perfectly good tabletop play standard miniatures which, when your confidence/time allows can be treated to a re-vamp with washes which will look tres nifty.
    I don't know how experienced a painter you are, so this may be stuff you know already, but I have good results washing metallics as follows:

    Silver(Boltgun metal, Chainmail, Mithril silver) - Watered down chaos black
    Shining Gold - flesh wash
    Brazen Brass - Brown wash.
    Invisible Toast.

    Im deffinately a novice when it comes to painting. But i have some inks and know how to use them somewhat. Thanks for the tips on the colors and washes, i'll deffinatley be keeping it in mind when i return to those bad boys. I love the style of the chaos as well. Kind of a bummer how often the redo the model and the army books. But i guess that's just business

    Oh...it seems when i use my Blood Red, its a bit more runny than the other colors. What should I do to make it a little thicker? Do i just have to do multiple layers or add other colors?

    Nice squad!! If thats your first try at a full regiment its a really good start. Your painting is neat and tidy, brush control is good and the colours dont look to thick. What you could do if your having problems wit the blood red is first base cote the area with GW foundation red (i forget its name, think its mecharite) then work up to blood red from there as the foundation colour will give a nice even basecoat. Cool to see some clasic warriors around!

    The old warriors do have a sort of charm to them. Sometimes I wish I hadn't sold off all of mine. That's a nice looking first unit!

    I think they are about 8 years old, something like that. I had a regiment of these about that long ago but with a metal standard top and metal halberds and i always prefered the weapons you have on yours.

    I agree there is alot of character in these mini's and the multipart kits made them very flexible. Just a case of getting them to all stand in base to base contact that was always a challenge lol
