    Default IRON HANDS army jus started painting again

    Jus started painting again my Iron Hands Army. This is probably the best model ive painted so far, and im pretty proud of it for my skills, but I still think it sucks. I wanted to post it to see what you guys thought about it and to see if i could get any pointers and tips about painting this army. The black colors make any greys or lighter colors extremely devestating so any mistakes show up a lot. any feedback is welcome, and dont take it easy on me, i know its not good. Thanks

    Thin your paint a bit more. I think more layers of thinner paint will help build up the colors better.

    You can fix the white lines with some of the dark paint.

    As for a glowing eye tutorial, check out the articles section for one by Cyril. Keep at it!!

    Default Brush Problems :/ ........

    Also I have VERY shitty paint brushes (Wal-Mart cheapo's). It seems like my very fine tipped small brushes for detail all have stray bristles going off of the tips, which cause me to make mistakes. If that makes any sense :P . I just bought a decent detail brush from my local hobby shop for about $5.00 U.S., only to get home and take off the round plastic protector for the tip with the bristles and see that it had been pushed down to bend all the bristles back and mess them all up!

    I tried straightening them out and cutting some strays off with the x-acto hobby knife and it still has some that stick out on the tip and mess me up. I'm scared to use scissors on the end and mess it up even more.

    As you can see I used this brush for outlining my hardlines with a light grey and it looks terrible. I know i could make it look better with a brush that didnt have the stray bristles like that.

    Can anyone tell me what kind of brush to buy and where, that isn't horribly expensive, or a safe way to kinda fix the ones I have. I dunno if anyone has ever had n e sort of problem like this with there brushes or if its just me lol. It is very annoying!

    Thanks for all the help in advance, I look forward to being a part of these forums and learning more and more.
