Please remember that this is my first effort in painting Warhammer and Miniatures. I know there is some amazing artist out there but at the moment I am not one of them! But I am pleased with how they came out. Here's how I painted them...
Firstly, I painted on the base coat in 'Imperial Primer' and here's how they looked...
Secondly, I started to apply 'Ironbreaker' to the armour, helmets, boots and chainmail.
Then I painted the shields, sleeves and other clothing in 'Ulthuan Grey'.
After painting the clothing 'Ulthuan Grey', I went and painted the strips in the banners, the gloves and the sash over the shoulders 'Caledor Sky'.
Then I went and painted the dragon on the shield, the jewels in the helmets and the highlights around the bottom of the chainmail in 'Mephiston Red'.
And finally I used 'Kabalite Green' on the bottom of the shields and on the remaining flag poles and insignia. Filled in the faces, hair and leather bags with 'Cadian Fleshtone'. And then washed over the hair, helmets, boots and spear tips in 'Nuln Oil' to give the Guards a weathered and worn look.
Then for a little bit extra I painted a back drop for my figures (again, please remember that I'm new to painting lol!)
I hope you all enjoyed my first shot at painting Warhammer. If you have any painting tricks or tips then please let me know about them in the comments below!
