    The thing with OSL is that it makes the model look like it's lit in the dark or at night. It's a cool effect, but can look unnatural. I'm not a huge fan of it myself. But, if you want your army to be painted to look like it's doing night time operations then it would look really cool!

    I think I'll tone back the OSL on the bases and keep it in the depression where the light would be. Thanks for the comments, guys. I think Barid and Rafiq will be next, but I want to balance my repaints by sectorial so I need to do some Qapu Khalqi models next - maybe an Odalisque and/or Kaplan. Then back to Yu Jing!

    Alright I'm back. Kind of unhappy with the Haqqislam again. Maybe too grey...not black or white, just looking a little blah. If the red is kept the same, do you think a warm white (e.g., VMC Deck Tan) or more of a cool white (e.g., VGC Ghost Grey). I know Angel's method is the former but its paired with purples and pinks. If its paired with red, would it look too warm, or would cool Ghost Grey look weird? Back to indecision. I'm moving into a sort of JSA or Nomad palette, so maybe so advice on those whites.

    You may try some blue gray or just glaze neutral gray with your tone of choice.

    Maybe so. I am trying to plan it before I drop money on new paints. I am also thinking of balancing the warm deck tan white color with military green pants, but don't want too many colors. I don't know why I'm having such indecision on this army.

    Toiling, toiling, as the Haqq minis are buried in geologic layers of paint, but I think I like these. Slowly circling back to classic Haqq scheme, but wanted to get away from desert aesthetic by swapping tan for white and camo green for deep green. Also the industrial bases, while not my first choice, add some different textures.[​IMG]

    Continuing with Haqqislam, officially pleased with the color scheme. Decided to go a bit heavier with the orangey OSL on the jammer here.

    The green is VMC Deep Green + VMC Burnt Cadmium Red shadows, VMC Deep Green as main color, VMC Deep Green + VGC Scorpion Green first highlight, VGC Scorpion Green top highlight. The white is VMC Sky Grey shadow, VGC Ghost Grey base, VMC Ivory highlight. Orange is VMC Clear Orange, VGC Orange Fire (stop here for armor markings), VGC Orange Fire + VMC Intense Yellow, and then white for OSL. Cloth is just VGC Heavy Grey (=VMC Russian Uniform), then AP Dark Tone, then VGC Heavy Grey again, then highlights of VGC Heavy Grey + VMC Buff. Blacks are VMC German Grey, VMC Blue Grey Pale edge highlights, VMC Sky Grey spot highlights.
