Default Camoflaged Lictor, Vindicare, and Blood Angel

Hey guys,
I've been gone for a while, so I thought I should show you what I've been up to. I've just been painting some random models from time to time, so here they are.
Enjoy!*

Here's a lictor I did. I was trying out new basing techniques.




Here's a vindicare. I repainted him, added a gloss finish, and made him a better base.




Here's a blood angels sanguinary high preist I did.






What do you think? All comments are appreciated.*

Did you prime the model before painting? They look nice, but the finish look ruff a little.

Yeah, I did. The vindicare was a repaint, so there's a little bit of extra paint on him that obscures details. The Lictor I did with drybrushing only, so he his a little rough. The sanguinary high preist had a little too much pirmer on him, and then I used thined paints, so I guess the rough spray primer showed through.

I like them all. You've got good variation of models and they're all lookin' spiffy!

I would go over the white again a couple of more times with watered down whites, as they look really rough. Otherwise, I love the lictor ;D

Yeah, I'm not sure I'm gonna go back because I've kind of stopped doing blood angels as much. But I'll try that next time I'm painting white. Another trick I like to try (I didn't do it on this one) is to use a very thin blue ink wash on whites to give them a little more depth.

Thanks! I tried like 5 techniques on the lictor but decided a simple drybrushing might look best to bring out the eyes and the base he's blending in to.

Those are some very nice models, I particularly like the Vindicare's base.

Very nice!

Concerning the Lictor: You proved twice now (with the Stealthsuits) that the basic techniques can be very effective.

+++I like it! Even though the lictor is very bland the base makes up for it.+++
