Greetings all,

Just posted a step by step tutorial showing how I painted my first batch of Zentraedi Regults.

Enjoy.

Thanks, Love to paint and do the hobby stuff. Since most of my painting has been the same colors for the next few tutorials I'm going to try to get closer pictures so you can see how the paints layer a bit better.

Very nicely done Pythdamion. I do have a question about your choice of primers through. Black is a very hard color to cover have you considered using white or even grey? I think you could get a nice two coat coverage with the lighter primer and you would have to paint less layers as you try and build up your colors. Of course with a lighter primer you would have to line your miniatures to make up for the absence of dark recesses.

I primed my first box in black out if habit, usually I paint minis in darker colors. My next box I'll probably prime white for Zentradi and light brown for UEDF

I looked through your tutorials a little (I'm on very limited internet via my mobile device) what glue do you use? I just for my battle cry box and am itching to start building but want to make sure I do things correct. I'm not totally new to minis but still very green.

If you have a build tutorial I missed a link to that would be great too. Thanks and your stuff looks good

With my first batch of Zentraedi, I did an aluminum under coat, then did a light spray of white overtop. It kind of gives it a shiny, dirty white look. Once I have them all assembled and base-coated, I will go through and do the other colors. Since I like my colors bright, I will probably use Ultramarine Blue and gunbarrel gray for the gunbarrels.
