Pretty good for your first try. Way better than my first ones.

For a new-comer to hobbying they are surprisingly good.
From what I can see you've already had a go at battle damage on the armour, which is good, and it looks like you actually tried to base them, which is something that many newer players seem to miss.

A few things that I think you should try:

Water your paints down just a little - use an old saucer or a piece of kitchen tile. Just a little water will allow your paint to stay smoothe when applied to the model, as some areas look a little lumpy. It will also help reduce any chance of the paint becoming thick and obscuring details on the model.

For the time being, stay away a little from the battle damage. While it may look good, when first starting it is more important to get the basics of painting and brush control down before you move onto advanced tachniques.

In places it looks like you've tried black-lining. This is basically painting the recesses and gaps in the armour. On some areas it appears you've one this, though on others you've either missed it out or there looks to be ink splashes around the area.
The key to this is not putting your paint on too thick, else the gap will become clogged and this won't work. All you have to do it used watered down Chaos Black (or black ink) and with a very fine brush use the bristle tips and run them inside the crevice. Should you spill any simply go back with the fine brush and touch up the armour plate, being careful not to cover the gap you've just lined.


Overall, very good for a first-timer :)

thanks for the comment. about the black lines going out of the "details" is mainly because my legs are seriously bad casted (left leg doesnt even have the details).

and about the wathering (i got a pallet :P (old "small" dining dish) but for the most part i just got the paint a bit out of the bottle and stuck it in a glass of water a bit. its pretty watered down that way.

and basing. on the 2nd and 3rd i cuttet out a bit of the base to make it look like tiles. and for the current model i'm filling those "lines" with sand.

also, make sure that you keep the black lining consistent.

And that simply washing the cloth on hte armur after a drybrush looks really effective.

Do you know how to do these two?

PM me if not!

Very good for your first try. Good job overall. I can resize the pictures if you want because they are quite large.

Actually i think you should stick with that battle damage on them even if you are only starting out as it looks shmick (pron=hh - mik).

Watch for hair, bruistles and other little things like that i noticed two of them have some on them, easily removed with tweezers. Use more expensive brushes as they will not drop bristles like cheaper ones and if looked after right will last longer than cheaper ones too.

Excellent for the first time, just a little tip when photographing, take pictures where the subject isnt so hugely blown up, i am sure at an arms distance the models look alot better but when you blow up the porportions you can kinda lose sight of what the mini looks like irl.

Not bad, but it really needs a bit of defintion around the edges... maybe a darker or lighter color in a small band around the edge?
