It is pretty corpse-like. If it bothers you too much, try mixing your flesh tone with some red and green. You should get a greyish purple. Use that for your deepest recesses like under the breast and below the biceps. Then from there just mix your flesh tone with a bit of red just to help transition those dark areas to your skin tone.

They have instructions on how to print your own, a huge library for pretty much all SM Chapters and other assorted factions and even links to have them printed professionally.

As someone who has met and knows quite a few gw employees, none of them are gonna go home and deal with more whining about their products when thats what they deal with 9-5. GW employees tend to like facebook groups and stuff where the energy isnt quite so toxic.

>to do facial features like eyes easier but heat transfer might be better for minis?
eyes are a common decal subject for bigger minis like you get from animu or vidya sideshow statues.
For miniatures in ~28mm that's total overkill though. All you need to do is set a single black dot. You can do that with a fine marker/micropen. You can get those for miniatures too, as that is how panel lining is commonly done on gundam.

Heat transfer ones are like the ones Little Big Man Studios do, they are good for flat surfaces, but on anything else, like a shoulderpad for example, you need different transfers that you can soften with a solution like MicroSol/Set.

Both armys have a lot of details with them. Night Lords for their lightning bolts and TS for their large helmet things. IMO Blue is easy to paint and kinda fun, also Lightning can be a pain in the ass to paint thinly but if you are picking that as your army you should git gud after awhile.

>> No.69297747
Quoted By: >>69297810

Thousand Sons have the disadvantage for a beginner of having a fair amount of yellow (awkward colour to paint) and the minis all having lots of really fine details like gems and shit. Night Lords are a lot more straightforward, and the lightning embellishment is actually fairly simple to do while producing a nice result (unless you want to go full skullface on most of them, then it gets pretty fiddly). I'm a big TSfag personally, but for an absolute beginner Night Lords are a sound alternative.

Half and half, it's mainly about brush control and keeping the lines between the blue and white both clean and where you actually want them. The actual technique of bone white + wash isn't that hard, but applying the details afterwards without fucking it up might be frustrating if you've not gotten comfortable using the brush.
