So like many other I’ve picked up the recent GW contrast paints. I did this however with a very specific project in mind. My long neglected Nids for 40K, this is a force I started long ago and wanted to be a big swarm army. The overall colour scheme I came up with ages ago and I like, but the force has never seen enough of the paint brush for various reasons.
So I’ve been trying out contrast paints with the aim of getting them moving. So firstly I’d better say that the new paints a very good, but very different and as such I’ve spent a bit of time just playing with them. And after a few attempts this is what I’ve got.
Now the model definitely looks better than when he was just base sprayed white, but is it good enough?
And thats the question I’m just not sure on. As I know I could paint this model better, but would I? This is less than 1 hour painting session with only a few paints used.
3 layers at the back used as “bases” 3 contrasts paint that have done all the heavy lifting so to speak. And a few extras to neaten up do eyes and the like.
So do I try to do a load of these and get a great table top force or do I put them back in the que for good painting, which probably means back in a box.
Whats others take on contrast paints?
