That's a really nice effect dark6. I recently struggeled to coem up with a scheme for my guard. I think generally speaking it pays to keep it simple. For me camo never looks right.

really like your models THis iz Beef.

i dont have any pictures of mine, but maybe if i find time after word i'll shoot a few. i use the games-workshop deathskull ork skin stage-by-stage for the clothes, with a layered red/orange for the armor. i was sick of painting typical color schemes.

i'm not the best painter but i like them.

Some really great stuff here. Especially like This iz beef's painting, and slavetodorkness' vostroyan conversions - looks very grim (also dark).

@ xblackdog - those are really good, you've done everything really neatly, but you might find they look even nicer with a wash or highlight on each colour. For example, if you go back and give the red paint a red or brown wash, the black armour a greyish highlight or very light drybrush, and do a very light wash of flesh over the faces and hands, that would make them look terrific.

Lunahound, those sentinels are all just amazing. Do you use an airbrush for the body, or is it all painted by hand?

That's lovely, my favourite of the thread. It's looks really different, bit of a Russian feel to it.
