These are a couple of my Flintloque Orc Dragoons that I painted back in the 1990s.
It was my first real success at painting red. I found that red wouldn’t cover the black undecoat, what I did differently this time was to use a dark brown basecoat before painting the red. After this I would often use a different coloured basecoat to get good coverage.
I have to admit I now quite like using the (defunct) Citadel Foundation paints. Interested to try out the new Base paints that Games Workshop recently released to see how they work when painting.
