You know there's always a moment in your painting career, that you either decide to improve your painting techniques or you stay where you are and try to be happy with the way your models look like. I decide to learn something new; layering. glazing.
I started off with Brother Omnio from the amazing Space Hulk set. I started with Blood Red with Dark Flesh, Blood Red up to Blood Red with Blazing Orange. I wanted him to look dark and gritty, as I want all my models to look. Here he is in an unfinished state. I still have couple of details to do, that I haven't done due to shortage of paints in my back pack :)
Here is Brother ******* from Squad Lorenzo. WIth this model I decided to go with some of the Valejo paints. I heard they are thinner then GW paints. So I bought couple reds and a Valejo paint thinner, which smells like hospital, but does it's job perfectly. Although it required more layers than the painjob on Brother Omnio, I am happier with the results. It is also unfinished due to lack of certan paints.
The Brood Lord... I'll be honest: I didn't go into some extensive colour schemes for one reason only. I have loads of them to paint and just in case I decide to start a Tyranid army when the new codex comes out I don't want to spend too much time painting hordes of spikeyz.
And four of the Genestealers. Bases need some work, but they will do for now.
Plus I painted half of the door thingys from the Space Hulk box. They look much better drybrushed the in simple black. Plus all my bases will be done in the same manner.
Oh and I painted a model for Warmachine, which is really tempting, but I'm holding my waller closed tightly so I don't spend any money... so hard!
