Just consider me the man with a large number of questions. Also, I just might be that one extra topic that ensures the board isn't unchanged the next time you check it.

So, how do you do your teeth? I currently paint the foundation of the face behind them, drybrush/highlight the face, and then paint the teeth a foundation color, highlight them, and wash the whole thing. However, I've noticed that the paint which inevitably exceeds the boundaries of where I want it to be ends up making it hard for me to go back and clearly paint the teeth at times. Didn't know if anyone had any tricks, or I'm just going to have to work through repetition to work on my motor skills for finer work.

Also, color preferences? These are orks for me, so I tend to do Bestial Brown, light over shade of Bleach Bone, and then Skull White. This gives me a nice dirty look even before the wash.

Sounds pretty good.

Usually I'll do an almost black for the mouth (Valejjo Charcoal) and then the teeth in Ivory. Since they're usually so small a small brush + a sorta "dry" brush approach is enough to color them. Course it all depends on the mouth. Teeth and eyes can be tricky.

Hmm, that makes sense. Yeah, I am trying to learn a few more tricks for painting eyes as well without bleeding the color out of the edges. Oh well, practice makes perfect I suppose.

Eyes are tough too. One biggie is to get a tech pen in black or blue. Then you don't need to be perfect with your brush.

Something like this, though this is not what I use.

Gws how to paint books are very good tools for learning to paint. They go into decently good detail for how models are painted by them. Also the master class paint book is also available from gw for going to the next level.

Personally I use GW Chaos Black then heavy dry brush GW bleached bone over the teeth. Then hit it with GW devlan Mudd wash. The teeth come out looking like teeth but aren't clean because it is war ya know...

GreenJello, thanks for pointing me towards pens, I might have to give that a go until I get a bit more precise with my brush to face application.

Makari, I've been eyeing that book for a while. I am trying to get my hands on a copy of the How to Paint Citadel Miniatures book first though, so I can be a bit more well-rounded on normal techniques before I enter the class of the masters... Ha. The Chaos Black might work too, just something to paint on before I go crazy with Orkhide Shade on the rest of the face so I don't lose the lines of the teeth.

Turuk, if you're looking for some general painting help there are a TON of good guides on the 'net and youtube. Hanging out and posting questions is a good approach too. Smile TBH, most books are pretty good, but why pay for information when you can get it for free? Smile

Thanks for the sites, it's greatly appreciated! I've googled stuff before looking for answers, but some of the painting advice you find is as likely to be sketchy as it is to be helpful. Books are nice, but I am all about free too. Smile

Sure no problem. You're correct, the 'net is free as in beer, but not so much when it comes to time. Smile
