Began painting when they came out, still loss of interwebz connection cut me off from welcome input.

So at first did 2 of the new figs, Sanguinor and Lemartes. ( Astorath not ready yet. Mephiston and corbulo also just glued. )
Will present here those 2 painted models, maybe later add the rest of the BA force.

Not bad. I quite like the use of silver and gold on the Sanguinor rather than maxing out on the bling

Perhaps some heavier washes would help on the definition though.

I really like your Lemartes. I think both minis do have one major issue though - your metallics are much too thick.

Metallics are especially tough to deal with, they dry FAST and they do not thin very easily either. Personally for someone who is not very familiar with thinning paints - I recommend the Vallejo Model - metallic colors. They go on quite easily.

For your Sanguinor - I'd hit him with several washes. First make a very thin (tinted water thin) mix of water and Chaos black - and cover the model completely. This might bring it down dramatically but that's ok.
Then add a color wash - like GW Leviathon Purple wash (slightly thinned with water is preferred) to both the silver and gold. Touch up the golds and silvers with Burndished Gold and Mythril Silver respectively on the 'raised' and light-reflective "highlight" areas - then wash again the gold with Gryphon Sepia.

Should mention I do apply usually enamel colors for metallics ( Gold, bronze brass, copper, silver ) cause I hate the fickle
GW metallics ( except boltgun metal and tin bitz, which get used often ).

Sadly, only revell is available everywhere, so any different manufacturer would mean I have to order.

Interesting, thinned chaos black instead of badab black?
Didn't think of purple washes, why does this 'support' silver and gold?

Used gryphonne sepia on the 'soft armor', made it a bit brownish.
So you're suggesting to take the shine a bit down and highlight then. Could give it a try if I can obtain more washes.

Looks good, but they could be a bit darker.

If you are using enamels that explains it. The GW metallics are a pain in the butt, though they do yield some nice results.

Yeah chaos black will bring it _all_ down some, not just the pooled recesses but including them. It will also be entirely matte.
I like thinned purple washes because it adds a lot of nice nuance to metallics and will work on both gold and silver. But on the gold you will want to warm it up again (gryphon sepia) and touch-up the gold color.

But yeah basically take the shine down then highlight.

I have to agree with Gunzhard washing metallics makes them look nicer

Added 2 more :

Astorath and Dante. Switched to black with astorath, but followed the common paint scheme with Dante.

Tried to keep astorath dark, used greys and black / blue.
Dante received washes, so maybe less shiny this time?

Good work but as others have said enamals are not any good for 28mm models. Remember you don't have to use GW acrylics, art arcylics can yeald good results and can be cheaper. Check out your local art and crafts shop.
