I know bishop, I am terrible with mold lines. However it is time consuming and I am still trying to find a tool I like for removing the,.

That camo pattern really is a nice touch. It adds a lot of flavor to the model. Nicely done!

Thankyou all. I would have photos for you today, but today I bought a new camera (mum wanted hers back) and unfortunately, it didn't come with the battery it was supposed to come with. So its being taken back to be replaced with one that actually has a battery. So no pics for a few days.

RE: Sanai's Imperial Guard Paintlog- Now with undead, and 50% more ORWANGE!

They testing models look nice! Have you thought of any highlights/washes that you could apply in order to make this theme look richer? :)

RE: Sanai's Imperial Guard Paintlog- Now with undead, and 50% more ORWANGE!

Not very experienced with highlights/washes. Am thinking of redoing the bone to look dryer/aged/yellowed.
Am thinking of brightening the macharius solar orange with blazing orange (at least on the ghouls)
the ghouls bone/nails are going to recieve the same treatment as the bone on the skellies once I decide on a bone technique.

The metal I might add some rust to and maybe some bronze/brass parts.

Any ideas on how to achieve any of the stuff above?

For a yellowed bone maybe you could test using bleached bone and as highlight with rotting flesh, but that's just a thought.

For rust you could see my corpse cart and if you like the result of rust I have there a link about making rust!

I like the orange, its different but I think it works nicely. A yellow on the orange for a highlight but talk of bright colours makes my brain hurt. xD Nice work.

I know you meant "them", but the ominous "..." afterwards....brrr :skull:....

Anyway, those are some nice IG. I also like the camo effects, it's pretty cool. And screw mould lines! You wanna keep 'em, then you damn-well keep 'em! xD

I really like the work you've done so far. It's great to see an IG army with some of Schaeffer's Last Chancer's. They're really cracking models.

Keep it up, I look forward to seeing a whole bunch more!!

Besides what has already been suggested I can not add more

But I would like to state that hunters orange is a intresting color for the undead, very eye catching the imperial gunners will have a field day with it. Hunters Orange Figure I DId nudity warning

That is pretty much the only orange figure I have done. I really look forward to seeing more of your undead by chance do you have another blog of undead you did before.

Such love sanai hugs in one thread now loving in this thread, now if you dont redouble your efforts we might have to take a flail to ya.

I did have a plog for my undead, just contains boring stuff like pics of undercoated ghouls/skellies/cc and crappily painted zombies and a sorta painted skeleton with my old colour scheme (red and dark gray)
