I'm currently painting up some Savage Orruks for 40k Snakebite units but I figured the post should go here as its applicable to both AOS and 40k.
Over the last few days I've watched a few painting tutorials, trying to familiarise myself with the epic models and their detail, and gain a few tips as I'm not the best painter in the world, by far.
Anyway, so I was thinking about the whole warpaint concept and basically most people seem to paint their models then add the warpaint. An idea came to me.
It was based on sports jerseys. There are a lot of rugby, GAA jerseys ect nowadays that design their jerseys to enhance the players natural physique by clever tailoring and colour selection. This can give a subtle edge in gamesusing psycological warfare on their opponents. "They've more upper body strength than us, they are fitter and are going to hockey us all over the field"
So I'm going to try a different method of warpaint.
I'm going to use the warpaint to make the muscles stand out on the figures to make it really catch they eye instead of layering with a slightly different shade of colour to highlight the bulging muscle mass, I'm going to try with a completely different bold colour (Blue/white). Has anyone else tried this?
I've just finished the priming and base colours on my Unit of Morboyz (Nobz) and Arrowboyz (Boyz with Slugga/choppa) and am ready for a wash to bring out the details. so I'll find out pretty soon if it works.
I'll let you know how I get on,
