Had some productive work meetings yesterday

:D

Seems a bit darker than my test model. Not sure if I mixed up some Aggaros Dunes in what I thought was my Skeleton horde. :ermm:

Anyhow I'm not going to redo them I shall push forward! Another 2 hour meeting this afternoon I can drop some red on them then gold :D

Meetings continued this week so got a bit more done
Next week I won't have the same opportunity so hopefully I'll be motivated to continue after hours

Well this was the first weekend I hobbied in a while
Got the reds finished and then hit them with a 1:1 nulin and gloss wash. Will see once I highlight the hair? if I like that idea or not :ermm:

Also got the black on the spears done. Next is golds which I also had to remember the recipe :facepalm:

I like how meetings seem to be a universal time waster (work productivity speaking!) but at least you got some hobby out of it :D The custard creams are looking wonderful, it's a really nice colour and the red is a nice deep, rich one too :tu: You're almost making me want to work on my Custodes again... almost ;)

You've proably answered this eraier in the thread so I apologise for not looking, how have you achieved that real flat and smooth bone colour? As its a colour that I picked for a BA successor, but just sucks the motivation out of me to paint it.

Hi Baz, no probs the armour is pretty easy it's just
Wraithbone primer and a 50/50 medium and skeleton horde mix
My notes say that after about half an hr the mix will start to dry out and dilute so don't mix too much at once.
Contrast paints work well for this colour I think
It's the gold afterwards that's killing me!

Do you find that you have to lay down two coats of contrast paint to get a smooth finish? So far I've only found 2 contrast paints that look good (e.g solid) after 1 coat. I'm quite enjoying painting gold, although you could say I'm cheating by making excessive use of make-up brushes as dry brushes.

I found it went on fairly smooth
This was just 1 coat otherwise it got too dark
Did u try thinning it with contrast medium?
I also used my large W+N S7 brush that holds a lot of paint but provides a good amount of control when applying

Looking forward to seeing some pictures then ;)

No I haven't tried thinning, The colours I found needed help (i.e 2 coats) Leviadon Blue and Flesh Tearers red.  Otherwise they just looked washed out. The blue I've used on my Custodes cloaks (that's 2 coats). I use either a GW med wash brush, or Army Painter Basecoat depending on the area I'm painting. Maybe I'm not being liberal enough with the paint? Thanks @Duz

Liberal applications followed by removing excess from pooling in areas seem to be the key
I'm not contrast expert but have been using them more recently between this guys and terrain

I would definitely recommend W+N brushes for them and in general. I'm a recent convert I think I'm on year 2 of my initial 3 brushes which at this point with GW brushes I probably would be on my 2nd or 3rd set. Definitely more control and hold the paint better. Might seem odd to describe a paint brush that way but when you use one you'll see what I mean.
