PostSubject: Assault on Black Reach preview! The first army!!!   Thu Mar 01, 2012 6:24 pm


Finally, I've painted my first army!
For your information, I've just bought this Assault on Black Reach box on Hobby forge 2-3 weeks ago. I've worked pretty hard to paint this thingy, with still no experience and so on. Overall, I'm quiet satisfied with my paint job. This is a small steps for me, but a big one for my next project. Well, what do all of you think?













And to see the full gallery, you can visit my blog: otakuclubrkidz.blogspot.com under the tabletop wargaming corner. I've put there about how I've painted the minis, the alist of army you can find and overall story of the Black Reach.

Thanks!!!

first time painting miniatures?
I must say that your Orks looks nice, and the checkerboard pattern is very well executed.

@rkidz-kun: DUDE! 3 weeks ago and it's done @..@ you sure assemble/paint fast! I got my raptors 2 weeks ago and only one painted..LOL

Ditto on the checker pattern on orkz, it's kinda nice =D

You should consider invest/experiment abit on washes, apply it on one or two marines, the recess line will be clearer and your marine and orkz will shine more ^^ Give it a shot if budget allows man! (or barring that, you can try to water down your Chaos Black as a substitute of wash, just apply it casually on the recess, you will see the details pop)

Have fun dude!

edit : lurk around your blog, doh! you had applied wash! LOL, then its time for you to do some highlight on the edge..LOL What a Face

Going by my pace, I may even take longer than 3 years. After about 7-8 months and I am only near completion (painting-wise) to one measly Ultramarine Terminator. But I undercoated lots of models. Does that count? Heh heh ... Sigh

if you want to you could use the army painter dips to pull more detail into your models you can test it out on one marine and one orc and see how it comes out.

then spray with the matte spray so that it does not look so darn glossy.

I think that will definitely make the model stand out a lot more and with very little to no extra work too

Wow? seriously? I thought pro like you all take a shorter time than me.

But seriously, It looks a pretty sloppy to me........ I'm trying to retouch up most of them now....

And also, thanks for the painting advice guys! I really mean it.
