I’ve taken my first steps into oil painting. These models was only painted with oilpaints, except metallics and red. This is going to be really fun.

They look good but there needs to be more contrast especially on the bolters. What colour are you doing the bases?

I want to keep them pretty subdued since it’s raven guard :) the bases are like ship-decking/zone mortali- bases

ok, then id recomend picking out the metals a tad brighter on the gun, also a few more spot highlights on the gun casing so it doesnt get lost in the mini. Id also make sure the bases arent just bare dark metal, have a paint layer and chip it like yellow or red etc

 

heres some pics to try and explain

 

Heres an Iron Hand that is very black so i needed a contrasting colour for the base.

I like the subdued black, it looks very suitable for the Raven Guard. I'd second the comment about making the weapons a little more visible against the model. A couple of small dabs of metallics should be more than enough though.

I really like the rough muted black on these, looks gritty compared to straight up airbrushing acrylic black!

 

But I would agree that there is a lack of contrast from my personal view point.  A little weathering pencil edge highlight on that bolter would make it pop in addition to the metallics you've already used, as might a light gray drybrush on the base.

 

Might I kindly ask you which oils and what application methods you used please?  I'm sorted tempted to oil paint a marine in black to give it a try!
