Default Painted Shas'ui







I hate Citadel paints...I've gotten better results than this with cheap acrylic from Wal-Mart. I watered it down to the right consistency, but somehow still managed to get the paint on pretty thick. :-\

It looks better in person, I think.

...I think you misunderstood. These are Citadel paints. What I meant was these stupid $3 a pot paints suck in comparison to the $1 Apple Barrel paints they sell at Wal-Mart, which from my experience can, most of the time, be painted on the model directly out of the bottle and look better than this. :-\

I hope my entire army doesn't end up looking like this.

Indeed the paint looks pretty thick and nasty, ite model is painted to a lovely standard and I love the base. The key is, really, that if you water it down to the right consistency and it still looks thick, it's not the right consistency, try watering down more and painting it in more layers..

The helmet was stifling and the throw would be far... Damn this isn't 300.

Nice model, very clean. It is kind of thick in places like you said, but still very nice.

As a newbie my words don't hold much weight here, but I'll give my few cents.

- I love the scheme ;D

- Thinning the paint adequately as you write your self, I'm just learning this myself.

- The paint job is great, clear consise lines and very clean.

- I don't know about the dark gray/black areas on the backpack, something does not seem quite right there.

- Base looks fantastic, would you care to share how you did it?

Also what model is that, I've never seen that one (keep in mind I'm new)?

It's a limited edition fire warrior shas'ui model sold at events back in 2001, I think. I cut an arm off and added plastic fire warrior bits to it, he looked too much like a pathfinder for my liking. The base is a resin base I ordered on eBay from Back-2-Basix.

And like I said before, I know the paint sucks, it's not my best.

Oh yeah, I always assumed the parts on the backpack to be ammo clips, so I painted them black to match the gun.
