Painted some more LotR elves. Wood Elves I plan on using with Gildor Inglorion for some super speedy stealth
I suggest watching that video I posted above. The big advantages of the paint for 'pro' or higher level painters is that they remain liquid for an extended period of time and so are quite useful for wet blending as they remain 'active' for longer, they also work well with a little bit of medium for glazing. They don't do anything unique at that level (i.e.: if you were already glazing and wet blending then you probably have paints you use for that) but it's a wide range of colours of varying saturation.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.
