Painting miniature faces

Painting miniature faces

I’ve been painting miniatures for a year and it was about time I learnt how to do eyes.

The method I have found (to which at this point is my first attempt so this will probably change later) is:

Base coat of Abbadon Black
A coat of Bugman’s Glow
A coat of Cadian Fleshtone
Shade with Reikland Fleshshade
 
Black for the eye balls and then white on the pupils.
Add the pupil’s and tidy up the black using Cadian Fleshtone
Highlight the flesh using Kislev Flesh. Paint the metal areas using Leadbelcher paint the hair using Dawnstone.
Apply Nuln Oil over the metal areas and hair. Now your head is ready to be added to the body.
I need more practise at the time of this writing.

Warhammer 40k Painting Guide

This is the painting guide I use for my Warhammer 40K miniatures because I am colour blind I need the assistance.

This guide is taken from the Citadel app from https://citadelcolour.com/ , Warhammer Conquest magazine and the reverse of the Games Workshops models boxes.   I hope you find it as useful as I do.

I decided I wanted a container worthy of the Death Guard, one that is writhe with disease and decay.

 

With the gun turret painted and in place, the scene can be set for the battle to take place between the forces of good and evil!

 

 

Using Olive Green vallejo air brush paint I have base coated my latest crate.

Imperial Knight Paladin

Imperial Knight Paladin

Few weapons can match the Imperial Knight Paladin’s rapid-fire battle cannon for sheer long-range destructive capability. Able to blast apart entire battalions of enemies with a single concentrated discharge, the Knight Paladin uses its immense stride to quickly reposition, providing support fire as it moves for maximum battlefield coverage. In close combat, its thunderstrike gauntlet is able to disregard enemy armour with impunity. -:GW

 

 

 

 

 


The finished paint job and transfers are added, this knight is ready to roll out!

Orks

Ork Boyz

Orks fall upon their foes like a shouting green avalanche – tooled up with crude, improvised weapons and crude, improvised tactics, they’re an anarchic, battle-crazed force who live for the thrill of the fight. Addicted to violence, speed and brutality, they are resilient, resourceful and incredibly numerous – ‘ERE WE GO! -:GW
