Cheers guys, I'm trying to divide up the collection into 10k batches I've gotten another batch of titans to bring the titan legion up, have my extra dark angels undercoated and next up is the emperors children. Whatever is left will be another loyalist legion either space wolves or white scars

updating the to do list.

10K points plus worth of world eaters undercoated - need to assemble x2 thunderhawks need to undercoat a load of drop pods. need to undercoat fighters/bombers - going for a "universal paint scheme" so i can use them in different armies

10k points plus misc marine vehicles and infantry - will someday be emperors children

titan legion will be 10-12k worth approx remaining units to paint - emperor titan, x2 reavers, x2 warlords x4 warhounds, a heap of flyers as support.

going to paint up the world eaters as needed for games and keep chipping away at my titan legion.

i would like to have an ad-mech army also that can complement the titan legion

its going to be a busy new year!

Have you thought of applying an Ulthuan Grey was to the white to get a very light grey look? With white showing through as a highlight?

White is a pain to get looking good especially after a wash. Try useing a very light grey instead it's easier to paint and looks white enough to the eye. See my heresy world eaters in my thread these have been done with grey not white. The models have no white on them at all but they look white.

really like your painting, its the wash that's the problem alright. I've painted up the death guard I can live with the dirty off white/bone but I want to do some world eaters that have "whiter whites" I picked up some mini tubes of oil paint and artist tinners and I'm going to experient with a few tactical squads and see how they pan out with oil based washes I'll post the results good or bad on here

Best thing about oil washes is that if you don't like the results you can start over with wiping it away with white spirit. All my guard vehicles in my hobby thread and all bases use oil washes. I expect you're going to love it.

Excited to watch this army grow, mate

Worth a try for sure.

My WE's have just a black shade on them and some lite weathering applied in the recesses.

Hi!

White is such a difficult color, agreed.

Although a ivory tinge would look good I think. :)
