    Anyone have any suggestions for a desert yellow replacement colour? I'm looking at Tallarn Sand but it appears darker and more saturated. I use desert yellow as a base then carefully pick recesses with chestnut ink and highlight with bleached bone. (ancient colours I know) I started an IG army...

    Hey guys, As some of my posts previous have probably shown, I am pretty much brand new at the whole Warhammer thing, and I'm loving it so far. But as a complete newcomer to the world (and never being much of an artiste) I have no idea what a lot of the painting tips are saying. What is a...

    I know this might go in the Painting forum, but actually I wanted feedback on the 'Necron-ness' of the scheme rather than the paintwork, which is shody at best.. What do you think? It's a PITA job: Prime with skull white spray - heavy to get that lovely sand texture spray can produce. Wash...

    I plan to paint my army in the style of the army men that you buy in those bags of 20 for $1 with the greens, tans, and the brown-green middleground. I plan to accentuate the features of the model, so there will be no lack of detailing. If my models are mostly monocolor, can they be used in...

    I sprayed a few minis with black primer and interestingly I noticed that it's much easier to paint on top of sprayed paint than it is over brushed paint. Sprayed paint seems much rougher and new layers seem to grip onto it easier. I haven't used white spray primer; does it actually stick onto...

    So I've decided to start Tau as my second army and I'm having trouble deciding which color scheme to use. I've been trolling around looking at galleries and such and I have found a few that I like. I was wondering what recommendations and/or comments you have for these schemes. So far I think I...

    Hello there. I apologise if this is in the wrong place. I used the search function to try and find a section specifically for this kind of request but couldn't find one. In any case, I'd like to make a request of all the good painters in the forums. I'm a half-way to decent modeller but I'm...

    Ok, so with painting skin on my orcs, its mostly a pattern of snot green, a liberal wash of thraka green, then a "selective" drybrushing of goblin green. I don't really highlight at all because I don't really have enough skills in that area. What should I do? Am I doing it right?

    I am really new to fantasy and dwarfs, and I need a little painting help. First of all, I have dwarf flesh, but what should I use as a base coat for the skin? Also, on slayers, I found blazing orange to be too bright, and how can I make it darker and more realistic? If you could post links for...

    Hi, How do you go about getting paint from the pot to your mixing tray to water it down? Do you use a dropper of some kind? An old brush? Also what do you use for a mixing tray? Thanks, Rob

    I have been asked to post more of my marine force. I am painting this whole army in stages. I assembled, undercoated and base coated. I then shaded and washed the whole army before moving on to re coat the base colours. This is where you are coming in to see the process of my army being painted...
