Hey all Kevin here to talk about painting. Now the one tedious part of the hobby that I find a love/hate relationship for myself is painting. I love having my own painted models that look awesome. Although I always get frustrated with in 5 minutes and throw down the brush......which tends to lead to me having a week to paint half my army...giving it a rushed look. This actually led to my paint style having what I call my Van Ghogh highlighting/shading style in which I use a 3+ broad/uneven layers of highlights to give a cool blending look to the army from table view...but if you get close it usually is not that impressive. Now I will admit I do not have the patience for it so I do not call myself a good painter....I am fairly average but people still tell me they like the look of my painting. I also always try to build my skill by adding a new technique or method for every new army I get.
So in this article I am going to talk a little bit about some of the new 145 paint range that personally makes me excited to actually start a new army and get painting..... as a caviat I didn't get to try any of these yet its just what I am excited to get to stir some conversation on the possibilities...
1. Mourn Mountain Snow (Textured)
2. Death World Forest (Base)
3. Skink Blue (Dry)
4. Guilliman Blue (Glaze)
5.Agrax Earthshade (Wash New Devlin Mud)
1.Athonian Camoshade (Green Shade).....umm hello Catachan army redo? Yes please!
2. Casandora Yellow (Yellow wash)...anything to help painters do yellow...aka the hardest color to paint
3.Lamenters Yellow (Yellow glaze) ...see above ^
4.Herox Palesun (Yellow dry brush)....with the above two we finally have a comprehensive yellow layering system....yes!
Notice how none of the paint I mentioned was a layer paint? Mostly this is due to most of the layered painted being redos from the last range....Also none of the new exciting things are layer paints..
more on this later....time to set up an order
