The Imperial Fists 4th Company - Painting Process (Infantry)Okay so how do I end up turning out 100 marines that look and feel like that belong together.
|From start to finish|
Step 1 - The Undercoat (after doing a tidy up of cast-lines etc)
|Undercoat - any questions?|
Step 2 - Base Colour
|Base colour - Flash Gitz Yellow or a similar base colour.|
Step 3 - Key Colours
|Major colours - shoulder pads, metal areas|
Step 4 - Finish Up
|Add the silver on, tidy up the out-of-the-lines. Then the magic black lines.|
Once the paint is tidied up, I use a 0.1 Fine Line pen to draw all of the armour plates, details, junctions. This surprisingly turns a 'flat' looking model, into a very effective looking model. Group some of these models together (as you will see in other posts), and you have a very coordinated looking army, that looks and feels like it is part of the same force composition.
Step 5 - Bases
|Bases add to the detail, however understatement allows for flashy bases elsewhere.|
