Default I know you see this a lot but... first firewarriors

without further adue, my cityfight scheme.







I drybrushed pretty much everything, and inked to get the "dirt look"

In the squad, there is one "in progress" soldier.

Personally I would have painted the Fire Warriors completely first, and then started doing dirt and grime efects. Good idea for them, you just need to work on them a bit.

The flash has obscured a lot of the miniatures - could you try taking pictures using natural light?

I would, but to tell you truthfully I don't know how to turn off my flash!
Also it will be a problem, because in the morning before school it's dark, and by time my activities are over, it's dark all over again.

What should I correct for the next ones? Because I'm horrible at highlighting, and using flat colour looks, well, flat.

Oh and Lonely Tau- I paint their body part by part, that way I don't miss any of their details. It works for me, but it's time consuming.

What's wrong with the weekend?

A little on the messy side but I guess you want them to look like the Fire Warriors have been through hell in the streets.

Try to complete them (as in assembled and with nicely flocked or designed bases) then take a picture of them with Macro on and the flash off.

They look good, but I'm not a fan of drybrushing.....
