Here are a few figures and a ship. I just want honest opinions/advice. For my guys in red I went really dark with them as I have with most of my Infantry. The guy with the servo skull I think I did a black wash on his chest and legs but not his skin. The sniper I black washed everything but his face and the Orgyn didn't get a wash and now that I am seeing the pics up close he needs a few touch ups around where his skin meets the shirt. The ship I think the patina on the metalics came out great but the body might need a little dry brush and some highlights possibly some Black lines here and there as well.

Take a look and please comment.

what are you using for a primer? It looks like you are getting an uneven finish with your models. I'm sure you are aware that there is much to learn when it comes to painting, but getting the procedure/process down is the first step. Even if you haven't acquired a lot of experience with techniques like washing and such, you can still improve your models by following a good tutorial on the basics. I'll see if I can't find an example for you.

Here's a link on painting with washes. Personally, I haven't done it this way, but it is simple. Notice how without so much as touching the details (teeth, bullets, etc) they still pop because of the properties of the washes. The key to all of it is successive thin layers, each with a purpose, but none over-done. That is where the base coat makes a difference.


Hope this helps! Keep at it and always ask questions if you aren't sure.
