This group is all about sharing great pics of beautiful models.
Why not show of your latest colour scheme and lets all get inspired.
hi guys i am biulding a dark eldar army i would like to do something different than the normal gw black with edge highlighting i have base coated the models black so far but i am a little stuck for ideas something different bright and intimidating to loo at i like the idea if camoflage but im not sure how to make it work thanks
i’ve only painted a hand ful – for mine I did a series of drybrushing in this order, tons of dark grey, dark purple, light purple, then a touch of pink – muted with a purple wash. Then pick ok areas like a shoulder pad / head and painted this a cyan/green colour. Power weapons / guns a very intense green with source lighting applied to the model.
but for some good inspirational have a quick scan through the GW flickr pool http://www.flickr.com/search/groups/?w=1606491%40N21&m=pool&q=dark+eldar
Ones I’ve seen on the net that impressed me was a guy that had gone for white/red which was very different!
but on the Flickr, a guy called Arion Spydis did some nice minis, the venmon that I think was displayed on the GW site is pretty cool.
Here are a few that I like to give some inspiration
that scourge looks awesome! who painted that?
not sure what his/her realname is; but LuckyNo.5 is their Flickr name. It’s pretty awesome isn’t it – really like the source lighting from the backpack – let alone the wings.
what are your thoughts colour wise? I think camouflage would work a treat thou
i was thinking of a grey and black camo maybe black and green weapons and blue or purple hair
yes any ideas how to paint camo like that
Dry brush the whole model dark grey, then light grey, then black wash. Once dry use a grey that is just above the lightest colour, enough to provide a contrast – but without being to intense, then just simple create random shapes across the whole model. If you water down this colour just enough so it sticks without running – then this will allow some of the shading to come through
Once this is done, then add the colours – just make sure you have a steady handy ! But if you keep it the head/cloth – then it should be easy to do; if you make a mistake and go into the black, then just quickly use a fresh brush with water to remove it.
do a test model first – see how it turns out; if you bought a raider and haven’t used the clinging on minis – use one of thoses to test it out
and post your results here dude
thanks for that ill give it a go do you know of any tutorial videos that could help
sorry none that I’m aware off, sure there will be – there are a few on YouTube, but they might tend to go towards the default scheme, black, perfect highlight lines etc.
Perhaps we should ask the BOW team to do a generic ‘how to paint’ camouflage, as really the same rules apply if its IG, Tau – just a change of colours.
i’ve already tried sending an email afew weeks ago but if others ask it may make them more aware thanks for your help
Just a heads up fellas. We have a camo painting tip in the can @beerogre can fill us in on when its due to go live.
Its an urban camo scheme for a 3 Colours Up Tip (So Backstage) and the results are very nice.
We’ll be looking at camo in more detail at a later date again too.
@warzan excellent dude – ignore my request I’ve just sent through if you’ve got in the bag already! There you go @deltafist – aid its on its way
I’d love to see someone do DE in white. Something that is totally opposite of what you think of them.
