    Default Far_Traveler's Mercenaries

    In this thread i'll display my Mercenary models as I paint them and, when I have time, models I have done in the past. I paint to arms length quality so be warned.

    First off is my Steelhead Halberdiers.


    For what paints I used and more, go here.

    pretty nice. i would recommend another layer of brown(?) on the front arc though. the brush strokes are a bit off putting to me. Also, a more matte finish (matte varnish of some kind) really helps models look nice imo.

    well done over all though

    Thanks for the kudos and the advice Trollock.

    I'm working on the Risen for Miss Alexia Ciannor right now and should have them done in the next week. Alexia and her solo will take a bit longer.

    pretty solid. if you are going to paint red over black though, you will probably have to do a few more layers if you want a smooth finish. i usually use GWs base red for the first layer cause it has pretty good coverage, and then i layer the desired red paint on top. saves some time for me

    Looking very good. Second Trollock's advice of using the GW red base then switching to your desired color as you get much better coverage in fewer layers.

    Thanks Trollock, PG_Greywolf and Aya. Would you say that GW base X is a good base for all their colors?
