The second of 3 Khornate Varanguard for AoS. His theme is 'the heat of the forge' or something. Also love how his croco-gator horse came out.

Looking great!

They do look like quite fiddly models, loads of tiny details. Are they a pain to get done?

And because I couldn't sleep last night, but it's still a bit too early to head to work, finished off another 'Mech. Hatamoto-Chi in 1st Genyosha colours.

Big in depth guide on Contrast Paints - properties, how to use them, how they integrate into techniques, etc.

Hopefully there's something useful for you out there!

Oh yes, there’s lots of detail to get through. I’m treating each one as a character model for that reason.

The world is a better place for croco-gator horses. :)

I love the red glowing through black thing you've got going on the armour there. Very burny.

Beautiful. I'm assembling those these days, though I'll be putting them on proper square (well, in this case rectangular) bases as Sigmar intended.

I have to say that one of the big pluses of Contrast for me is that they remove the most boring stages of painting for me, and therefore make it far less of a chore. This is helping me actually sit down and paint. Now, if that Contrast black ever got back in stock...

I haven’t tried the Contrast paint yet. The way you are supposed to use them is not my painting style (I mostly go dark to light). I’ve seen some amazing results though.

Yeah, sorry. My post wasn't very clear, but that was totally a tangent and not a comment on your minis, in this case. If it helps, I used to paint dark to light too, and I found the switch to the contrast method fairly easy. They're just another tool in the box, ultimately.

If you ask me, the selling point of Contrast isn't "it produces great miniatures", anyway. To me, it is "a beginner can get these and get very decent miniatures in a short span of time", which is why many professional painters are missing the point.
