Freehand Painting - Take the Plunge
My first attempts at painting Space Marines (Iron Hands top picture and Storm Lords below) was pretty poor but I used my lesson from the freehand banner to have the confidence to try new things (the chapter symbols are freehand) and my painting has improved for it.
I have the confidence now to try my hand at sculpting with greenstuff now, as long as they are small bits :) but hey it all counts. My first sculpting attempt was the skull on the shoulder pad of this Silver Skulls Marine.
The Green was supposed to look like this.
It came out like this.
But trying this out made me realise that it would work on many other schemes like my take on the Marines Errant.
Don't be afraid, Take the Plunge!
