Perhaps you should paint them normally with really pale, pale flesh. Perhaps even use a technique I saw on coolminiornot called the "wet t-shirt method" which would look really effectiv on the clothing.

Also, you may want to mess around with your camera settings/angles/distance to try and get some clearer less blurry pics.

@ Sanai; Could you post a link to a mini done w/ that technique?
I'll have better pics up in a few weeks.It pains me too.Right now I'm just putting these up so that my participation is evident.
The cam only has 2 settings. 1=suck 2=suck harder. xD

But sucking is fun in some aspects. I say do the models as you think they would look best, how do ghosts fit into your personality, wettshirt that got my attention. I do mine as shadow people, because that is how they fit into my personality.

Ectoplasm it is then! I view ghosts as like powerful electromagnetic impressions.The burned in residual configurations of those whose passions or agonies were extraordinarily enflamed.

RE: Lasombra's World of Darkness.(plog)+Circe & friends.

I'm gonna try the wash method.If I don't like it I'll just redo it.It seems like the most effective way to do it.I may just do watered down versions of normal coloring,tinged with increasing white and then apply a uniform wash.Hopefully it'll come out as the spectral counterpart I'm picturing.
Well...I'd better get to it.xD

We need those updates! Your models look pretty good but I have to admit that the pics made it hard to pick out.....

I waited a long time for citadel washes and failed to get them twice!
once I ordered from GW,and they cancelled my order and said they were out.Then, I ordered off e-bay and it got lost in the mail :slapface:
I made my own wash and the result is what you (kinda) see.
They are by no means done,but I thought I'd update.
This next model is Marcus Ventrue(Gabriel Darkblood),I've spent about 6 hours on him so far and I'm not even done basecoating.There is alot of tiny details on this model and I've been taking my time.

RE: Lasombra's World of Darkness.(plog)+Trago.

Yeah,I can't wait to actually.As it stands they are too fuzzy to properly criticise,and constructive feedback is very helpful.I hope you know I was BS'ing about the 8-track thing.
On a sidenote it seems cowpatties and batswarms are synonymous :)

The wolf looks really nice. How have you painted the bracelets?

RE: Lasombra's World of Darkness.(plog)+Fresh.

The bracelets are copper and silver.The whole model still needs to be blackwashed,they will look better then.
For some reason the last 10% of a model seems to take me longer than the first 90% :redface:

RE: Lasombra's World of Darkness.(plog)+Fresh.

It looks really nice your new camara is a much better quaility, (try hard not to get paint on it)

I love the werewolf but cant wait to see you finish him so get to work.

Ghouls what would a vampire player do without them now

First wave of blood soaked ghouls.These are not even close to done but the flesh was coming along so well I thought I'd share.

RE: Lasombra's World of Darkness.(plog)+Fresh flesh.

I basecoated with basic skin tone.Then I made a wash using 20% Indian red oxide and 80% 'Lasting Flow'(which is 25% flow aid,25% retarder,50% distilled water)
It's very easy xD.

I still need to do a little incidental highlighting.and around his neck is a golden chain w/ the gem of blood on it,he is weilding my version of the sword of kings.
