Re: Chaos Sorcerer slightly WIP

Thanks for the comments!

I will try to finish this next week or so. I also have a halfling under construction atm. After that I need to do some stripping to get some other old models ready.

This is similar to my ideas about using them. I had a vision of using the oils with the wipe method (little paint + wipe, speedy) with an army, but that project is postponed.

There are some problems with paint thickness, but I think that belongs to this style :)

Re: Chaos Sorcerer slightly WIP

Continuing my experiments with oil colours... I am slowly trying to paint Harlequins for 40k. I have three Troupes (5-6 guys each) and some vehicles. This is the first batch and it is almost complete.

The idea is to paint all groups with similar suits (I tried to make some sort of holosuit) and mane + scarf with a distinguishing colour. This group has green, the others will probably have purple and orange. All ideas appreciated as these are not yet varnished and I will improve these a bit before they get a nice matte finish. Bases are done with acrylics.

Wow! They look great, especially those diamonds. And in oils?!!!! How on earth do you paint that finely with oils?

I don't thin my paints :P I think oils offer more options than acrylics, but painting is basically the same. Some techniques, like subtle glazing, take far too long with oils (for me), but blending works well.

Thanks for the comment!

They look stunning. Don't know if it's just your excellent painting skills or the oil medium that make these so nice.

Great stuff, looking forward to more!

They look really good! I only ever used oils for washes... Never thought of using them for actual painting :shock:

I will finalize this after the paints have dried - I'm also a bit unsure about the cloak, e.g. should I make the pictures more visible (darker/lighter shades).
