As promised here is the technique I use to paint my Praetorians. In just over a month I have painted 55 infantry and 12 tanks (4 of them are still waiting washes and clearcoat). I am working on an Aegis defense line line that should be done Tuesday night. Without further ado here we go.
I hope this answers your questions. I know some people are purists and opponents to the "Dip" method. I find that it works really well with the color pallette and gives me a good level of detail in a very timely manner. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask. I hope this gets you all motivated.
|Bare Metal Mini cleaned of mold lines|
|Mini Primed White|
|Playground Sand Glued to Base|
|The Secret to Speed|
|Do not "Dip" the Mini. Apply the Floor Stain like you would a wash. Spread any pooling over the rest of the model and coat the sand. It does not take long to figure out how to do this .|
|Model completely covered in floor stain. This is what the model should look like when done. Let these models sit at least 24 hours before moving to final step.|
I find that Testors Dullcoat works the best. No cracking or whitening.
|Once Dull coat is dry, paint base chaos black, drybrush the sand (vomit brown) and add static grass. Your model is now complete.|
