I decided that i'd start working on my vanguard veterans whilst I waited for the chapter master to arrive, so i've done more work, I decided to go for a harder, but great looking helmet technique, consisting of:
-Astronomican Grey [watered down] basecoat.
-HEAVY wash of badab black
-Go back and paint all the flat parts with thin layers of astronomican grey, leaving a thick, even darker shadow-line along all edges.
Here are some pics of what i'm up to.
Below each pic are descriptions of poses etc
Cinematic picture of squad. I think it's awesome :D
