Bad Devlan Mud? Tortured Tau?





So I am back to white primer, and I am loving every minute of it. So long grey blobby primer, nice knowing you. So the great part was that my paint coverage was ultra smooth, but I forgot to adjust my colors to reflect a white base. This means I have one very red/orange fire warrior. The same bottle of dev mud that might have made my pervious painting test shiny, did it again. I don't know what is going on with the stuff, but here are some WIP shots so you can see what I am talking about.

I am not sure I like the color scheme, but will do some layering on the legs, and maybe paint some sept markings followed by some darker washes to see how it turns out.

  1. I get the same problem with the Sepia wash, and some of the others if a). I apply it too thickly, and b). occassionally after too many layers.

    Really like the red/grey helmet.

  3. I've noticed this happening quite a bit with my new bottle of 'Mud too. Could be they are using a different type of medium in their mix...

  4. Get yourself a can of Testor's Dullcote. It will knock the shine right off.

  5. Try painting on a very thin layer of (don't soak, paint it on like thinned paint..) Baal Red on the armor and see if that helps. That's how I get a deep rich red for my Blood Angels. White base, Blood Red followed by a layer of painted on Baal Red. Check this out to see how it looks (after blacklining and highlighting with Blood Red):http://tahrikmili.blogspot.com/2009/11/blood-angels-14-terminator-wip.html

  6. I was actually the first comment on your post tahrikmili! I was hoping to get a slightly more orangish look from these guys, but I think the airbrush was better at achieving it!

  7. Very OT but a while back you converted a SM dread into a GK Dread. I'm new to the hobby and wanted to know if you had any tips or if there are some must do things ...
    thanks

  8. I know, I remember. Just wanted to chime in with something, to be honest. And I think they look really great with the orangish hue, I'm really looking forward to seeing this army come together.

    Man I want to paint Eldar as well. Some day :)
