I didn't buy the game myself, but I'm sure everyone has some great paint jobs out there.

Let's see 'em!

Overall, very nice. No blue on the Libby, though?

Orangecoke - I'm speechless, really, that is one amazing paint job. The librarian is sick as are the terminators. Did you use the White Dwarf article on how to paint them as a reference, or are you really that good?!

Thachng - Wow, i love the blues! The bright blue against the dark carapace makes them look like they're wearing suits or something, very nice! How did you do the metallic red?

Finally its all done!, took a week off to get my wisdom teeth out and I managed to paint my dwarf army and the whole space hulk kit I am quite happy with the result its not that great but it looks good on the table top

My method for my red was a coat of bolt gun metal and then i coated with a metallic red paint, any should be fine but mine was called Aqueous hobby colour its more like an ink and gave a really shiny look so I washed it baal red to dull it down.

For my blue I just used bolt gun metal and 2 coats of asurmen blue. The cat and the goblet were just simple one colour as I just got all painted out and just wanted to finish them .

The detail on Gideon squad is insane and much harder then lorenzo squad, I swear the flamer dude must burst into flames everytime he uses his flamer with all the parchments on him. Also lets not talk about gideon's storm shield.

That metallic is freaking sweet. I bet those look really good on the game board/table.

for those who have painted their termies:

did you paint them and then assemble them or assemble then paint them? i've cleaned/trimmed my models and am at the point i'd like to prime then and i noticed that i'd have a hell of a hard time trying to just spray prime (let alone paint!) some of the hard to reach overlapping spots. i'm seriously considering primering and painting prior to assembly.

Having built and primed mine i'd recomend painting them before building.

I'm an extremely slow painter, so all I've got done so far is the dead termi (used him as a test for the colors). I was determined to use black primer(I've never had good experiences with white), so I did a base of GW foundation red (Melachite? Mecharite? Meccaleccahi?) highlighted with Blood Red.

I built then painted. I hate painting half-build models to be honest, it doesnt inspire me so I have trouble staying motivated to finish them. Also, I dont bother painting any spots that arent visible or are "underneath" so I avoid wasting time on those by painting them assembled.

Build then paint. Some of the Terminators don't go together very easily.

Every time I have painted THEN built, the assembly screwed up the paintjob in some way.

Nice job, Luigi. I've been really impressed with how the foundations work.

Hey lord of corn, loving the paint job, two questions:
what technique did you use to paint the face?
what technique did you use on the gold?

Thanks, for the flesh i do a basecoat of a light fleshtone, then a brown wash, then a highlight of of the same fleshtone, then an extreme highlight of either a lighter fleshtone or the same as before mixed 50/50 with white.

The gold is a base of bronze fleshtone, then a coat of polished gold, brown wash, polished gold highlights and then mithril silver extreme highlight.
