21 Guardians

It's been a while since I last posted but the flu and starting a new job will do that. Anyway I've been plugging away at a bunch of guardians I picked up cheap on eBay. I love eBay - if you are patient and smart you can pick up some great deals.

All except the weapon platform gunner are plastic and were originally painted in Biel Tan colours of green and white. I started off with a thin overcoat of Chaos Black. I had picked up some Ork Flesh Foundation paint and decided to try it out as the base colour. While I got good coverage, I wasn't happy overall with the colour. It was a bit too flat and I wasn't getting a good contrast when I started to apply the highlights. To solve this I applied a wash of green ink + Chaos Black and reapplied highlights. These guys are still WIP. I have to finish the weapons, gems, purple highlights and various other details.

  1. Looks sharp so far.

    The Foundation paints are nice, they coat quite well, but I find alot of them are really dark. A few more to fit with the major baseline colours would be awesome, that and a true black.
