I'm not the greatest painter. So please constructive criticism only.

 

Here's what I'm working on at the moment.

Love the title!

 

Always happy to help out. It looks like you have a lot to be getting on with.

Perhaps some more close up pics of individual figures.

One thing I would advise for your Bushido figures is come up with a concept for your bases at this stage. As you have so few models you want each to stand out. For my prefecture I wanted each to have water and rock theme with long grasses.

I'm thinking bamboo forest for my Bushido, basing is not my strongest area though. I'll have a look online for some ideas though.

That could be quit fun to do.

a rather flat base and you probably only want 4 to 6 bamboo shoots per base. (you'll want to pin them to the bases)

To make the bamboo get some wooden skewers and make the notches with a little bit of green stuff.

I've already glued the models the base though, should I work around them ?

A bamboo forest floor would be fairly flat so you could work around them. I would goolge some images of a bamboo forest floor to get some ideas

I finally got around to working on my Bushido painting, I'm not that happy with it, the hats are ok but everything else I think is not that great. I still haven't done the skin yet.

Your creams and whites need a second coat.

You can lint the need by painting a light grey first.

Also see my blog on painting to see what a world of difference an ink can make.

Thanks :)

 

Everything will get inked eventually, I'm just going on a paint/base/ink method.

Your bushido color schem is nioce and simple - a couple of ink washes will make a big difference to the finish on those models

I took the advice and gave the colours another layer and then an ink wash. It looks good.
