Commander 1st drybrush & Terminator draft

It doesn't look good, but I decided to post this anyway, just to show what happens if you don't dry your drybrush :)

Dry drybrushing can be examined on this draft of a terminator model, which looks quite good , especially on the right leg and left shoulder.

Also, the lesson in this image are:
  • Always paint your Assault on the Black Reach terminator squad unassembled
  • Thraka Green wash is much better for Nurgle chaos marines than space marines.
  • Sometimes Badab Black is exactly what you want.
  • White priming is much better than black priming if the lighting in your painting room is not good.

4th marine closed & more

It now seems the problem I have with highlighting is because of bad color mixing. Because of that, I decided to close the 4th marine.
Also, I have added an extra touch of detail on the weapons and armor edges by highlighting them with a layer of mithril silver. They look much better now :)

4th marine, improved

A few improvements to the 4th marine model.

4th marine, intermediary

This is the first model where I've experimented with some highlights.. sadly I chose the bad model to practice this, because its model was badly cast in several points, most notable the shoulderpads.
The claw marks and blood leak were done to "compensate" for the badly cast model.

There's still work to be done on this model

  • Armor is painted much smoother
  • Right shoulderpad has been completed
  • Re-inked some of the creases to enhance detail
  • Teh skull is slightly ok-ish

3rd marine almost done

Wtb good brushes..

And with some errors corrected (still not final)
