    Hi there guys, this is m first foray into trying to paint something 'seriously'! I really want to learn a lot of new techniques and after lurking here for a good few years decided i should use this awesome resource.

    First off i pre-shaded the armour and tried to use black oils to get the recess' a little darker. As you can tell im leaning towards the military model way of painting with this one as i felt it would be more appropriate for the scale and this is what i want to learn at the moment.

    The part im stuck on at the moment is what colours to use give the tonal variation to the blue using oils. I've used the technique on military models (the one where you put spots of various coloured oil all over the model and then liberally brush thinner all over) Not sure on the term used for this, sorry. On military models ive put on white, buff, green, blue and red but on blue smurf armour im stumped what to use to get an effective affect. Im guessing white and buff would be ok but any other colours i can throw in would be great help from the oil masters here.

    Sorry for the pic it was iphoned and for my terrible description above, ive had no formal teaching and had to learn by mimicking what ive seen.

    I want the armour to look used but well maintained so it wont be bashed to hell and will be dusted up with city dirt/brick dust type pigments at the end. i imagine hes been prepping for war for weeks and is finally surveying the battle field.

    Many thanks, Joe.

    Reds/ purples perhaps?

    Who's this model by? Doesn't look like GW or Forgeworld.

    Progress i being made now its the holidays, once the chain sword is finished i can put a few scratches on the elbows, power plant, shoulders and grieves. As for weathering it will have a few water marks running off rivets but not much armour degradation. Ill use pigments to dirty the bottom of the cape up and subtly on the armour. But that will get done when ive painted the base which will be white marbe ( or an attempt at white marble).

    I will make the spare head i have into a chaos marines and have that severed on the floor. Nearly there!!!

    Started on the marble Aquila base. Does anyone have any tips on how to add more depth/detail to the marble effect? this was done base coating a very light grey then painting veins in black and then lightly going over with the airbrush with white and a few strafeing funs with a darker grey. was considering something with oils but im not sure how to go about it.

    One technique you could try is paint a line with the colour you want then using a clean drybrush , brush left and right across the line you have painted. then reline your fine fracture lines . This is the technique people use in decorating but works on a smaller scale to

    I used it when I wanted to do a marble effect on a base a while back and found it to give quite good results.

    Finally finished this and i got to say im really proud for a first large model. Thanks for the help on the marble guys. My friend took the pictures and i got three of each shot, each with a low, medium and high exposure so if you want me to upload a different exposure just ask.
