Well its hard

to say.
My GGW paints dried up so I bought some paits from a craft store to get me

buy.

So basically its off white with a wash of Blue ink from GW watered down a

little.
Then a blue paint job of dark blue then a littel lighter almost s dry brush

of light blue.
Then a dry brush of GW's Wolf Grey.

See I told

you it was tough?
I dont have all my GW colors any more?

And the brown is

just off white with an ink wash of brown then brown paint then light brown paint then a

dry brush of off white.

Uh thats about it....... Hope you can atleast copy in

your own colors.

And thanks for the input mutch appreciated.
All check

out your work.
post a photo of your stuff when you do it as well please if you

can?

OK the only faults I have seen

in your work has been:

On one of your models the high lighting was too fat, so

in the photo it looked like it was swollen.

Your exposed Tau heads are (to me)

too dark.

Default Re: Tau Ethereal "ArchAngel"

Thank you GOD.


I appreciate that.
I noticed that but was thinking it was cool.
But

smaller thinner lines. Good deal.
Too blue on my Tau heads? No problem. I just liked

them that way.

I dont think all try Golden Demons anymore.
I have the

shakes pretty bad from construction and Militray and getting old?

I am getting

better but I am shaking worse and worse.
I can only hold the brush steady for a few

minutes before I have to stop and rest.

Oh well atleast the pressures off I

can just paint now.
And get better and who knows maybe one day all try again.<br /

>
But I appreciate the honest opinions.
Its nice to say hay I like it alot very

cool.
If you where to thin out the highlights a little bit it would be more

realistic and the heads should be less blue.

Thats cool. I would like that.
Mostly I am just showing my stuff to get feedback on the ideas and a little on the

painting.
I understand painting is my weekest link so input helps.

Thanks

again GOD.
And for the kind words above means alot to me.

Painting isn&#39;t

my strong point either. I think one of the best models I have is the Khorne Dreadnought

and my Juggernaut. Sorry I don&#39;t have a pic of the Jugger.
