This is my first time painting a complete Warhammer army. I tried about 6-7 years ago to get in to 40k but picked orcs and burnt out after 1 squad of green dudes.

This time I picked the army I wanted to paint the most first and went from there. The only painting experience I have is the orcs from years ago and I painted a Mallifaux crew a couple months ago. Any tips and critique welcome.

They look really nice! Great start!

If you are looking for a few tips I think you might want to highlight the metallics a bit more (the Silver Helm head lacks depth) and file away the mould lines like on the back of the Silver Helm horse before you paint.

Thanks for the advice! I didnt realise how prominent those mold lines would be. I really rushed putting the models together so I could start painting. I only have two weeks to paint 500 points.

I really dont know how to add depth to metal colors. I wanted to keep the silver helms dull and silvery. I tried dry brushing the front with some dull white but it didnt really work.

I will try though!
