I see Tyson's models and he wants them painted black!

Post  Guest on Tue Mar 02, 2010 3:15 pm

... Yeah, lame title. I've been up for the better part of a day. So =P

Anyways, I'm basically the resident painter for the household, and I'm getting ready for a new set of binge painting in the none too distant future. However, both of my roomies would like black as a primary color for their models (Inquisition red/black for Jim, Crazy dark eldar for tyson.)

So the question, how do people recommend highlighting black on models, both vehicular, and infantry?

Easy way? fortress Grey, followed by codex Grey. Wash with Badab black wash. Done!

Yup, not really alotof choices. The only other way I know of do it is the blue and or purple highlight.

To this day, I'm I'm painting a mini who's hair I want to look dark black, I'll highlight it with blue jsut like they always do in the comics.

I've taken to using a color frolm Vallejo called green grey. I think they have some at the den. Rather than base with straight black I add a brush tip or so of the green grey. I add that for highlight and depending on what it's for I might add a little space wolves grey. If it gets too bright you can knock it down with the Badab Black. It's what I did on this guys pants.



I used a little pure space wolves grey on the belt across the chest holding the stakes, but it's hard to tell from the small photobucket pics.
