Default I Am Having A Lot Of Trouble Painting My Tau Fire Warriors And I Need Help!!!!!!

I'm very new at painting tau (not warhammer models just tau) and I need help. I recently applied a basecoat of chaos black to my fire warriors and now whenever I put on any paint it looks ugly. I either apply so much that it gets in the cracks or I apply so little that the chaos black shows through because it is to dark. Some painting tips would be much appreciated

Most sincerely,
WH40K@1

P.S. I am going crazy because I can't paint my fire warriors.
P.S.S. Really crazy
P.S.S.S. Crazy enough to bite my gym teacher.
P.S.S.S.S. She was formerly a drill seargent in the military and she got me sent to the hospital.
P.S.S.S.S.S. As I said before I am really crazy because I can't paint them.
P.S.S.S.S.S.S.(that's a lot of S's) Don't mock me or I'll Kill You.

First, use latex paints. Then water them down to at least 4:1 to 1:1 paint:water. That should do it.

Eh I just use chaos black spray paint to undercoat then a coat of vomit brown, then a coat of bronzed flesh over the top, the vomit brown coat looks patchy when applied, but once the bronzed flesh goes on you couldn't tell and it all looks i think very well.

Pics abit fuzzy, took on old phone.

Hey there,

You seem a bit confused about where to post.

You have free reign to post anywhere you'd wish, so use the boards that are more appropriate for what topic you are talking about.
For example, this post should be in the Painting Board.
Thanks.
