For the chin strap, I would go over it with the light brown you used for the belt, leaving the darker brown in the recesses (this is the key bit) - this will give it depth - a dark brown wash e.g. devlan mud (preferable to black - but that would work too) will then bring it all together.

I would probably do the cheek pads of the helmet in grey - so the chin strap is less 'beardy'.

Hope this helps
Laney Very Happy

ok wish me luck will try it once the kids been bathed and bedded

I think I am up to Version 5 now just can't seem to get the face right.

found it was a mold line over the right eyes that was pissing me off so I tried to turn that eye into a bionic eye or he has some kind of targeting matrix.... FAIL!!!!


FACE FAILED!!!!!


tried to do the green shoulder pad with red highlight FAILED!!!!





well its 12:30AM and time for bed might see how I feel in the morning about the shoulder pads. I might add some Space Marine shoulder pads and see how I go....

nite all

I think you can leave the model as is... it is playable AND lots better. Start with a new model. File the mold lines before you start. You know how to get the robes and armor right. So you can concentrate on the shoulder pads and face.

For the Shoulder Pad, what you have is a thick rust effect. Not bad, but not in accordance with the model... so it bothers you. In this case, simple is best. Paint the thing SOLID green. Goblin green would be good. Then take a little of green and a tiny bit of yellow... make a lighter tone. Paint the top edge (a little, thin line) and a little on the corners (thin lines are key!) Your brain will be tricked into filling the gaps!

On the face... follow Laney's advice. Is sound... like usual! So... let's see the next model!

(By the time we finish with you, the TESTS models will be your whole Squad!)
