Brand newbie girl to painting starting a thread cus its cool

Post by Avlaen » Fri Mar 22, 2013 9:50 am

Greetings one and greetings all!

So i have very very recently started to pick up painting i have currently painted a grand total of 3 models! but thought i would share my work with this lovely lovely community. but i do realy need a much better camera so sorry about the quality on some of the pics.

Anyway Model number one

Image
This one was my first model it was mostly learning out how to use a brush. I also ahem spilled half a pot of blood stone which is why hes a bit redder than most :P


Model numero duo

Image
Image
Image


This one is mostly the same but attempted more detailing and highlights also used an armour wash over his armour the pic from the back shows this effect off to the best was quite please with the effect and model especialy as it was just my second ever.

Model 3

Image
Image
Image

The one i completed today am massively pleased with this one i had more colours to try out as my second order came in and had alot more fun painting him, i am particulary pleased with the black shoulders i think they contrast the rest of the model nicely.

So thats it for now. Next up is the rest of the cinerator squad and then whatever menoth i feel like next and when im out of menoth i will be moving onto dark angels im enjoying myself alot more than i thought when painting. I expected to hate it but i had a blast painting that 3rd one.

Its taking me roughly 3 hours ish to paint one of these guys from scratch.

Thank you for your time and any input and... stuff. :)

This model is my first attempt at replicating a colour scheme of models i bought from ebay that i now intend to be the colour scheme of my army

Other than being to lazy to do touch up work on models (for ones i dont plan on using atleast) im quite happy with how my replication went learnt that i prefer the black neck gorget rather than it all being gold (also ordered the diff shade of black/gold to better match for when i do my non test models)

Also as a side note what upgrade kit would you recommend for the avatar to give him a better/longer sword?

Hello and welcome! Just a suggestion, it's probably better to insert the pics into the thread. In full editor mode, highlight the pictures link and press the IMG button.

I look forward to seeing your stuff!

You've used the wrong link for the [img] bb-code. You copied the link adress while you should copy the picture adress.
But welcome to the forums!
