Greetings all,

I'm painting my first round of Axis Gorillas this weekend. A quick but very important question: Did you find primering in Black produced a good result, or did you leave in the gray primer and use washes to get the darker fur? In other words, did you black then highlight up, or gray then wash down?

I'd love some advice on this, many thanks in advance

I painted them all black. Red mouths, white teeth and eyes. Then a very very very light grey drybrush, then dipped them. I think they look the best of any Dust Tactics figures I've painted.

I painted mine black as well, but i used heavy dark-blue drybrushing.

As a result, my own gorillas are really on the blue side, which gave them a really interesting look that's better than plain-old black IMO.

I just painted the flesh a darker grey and then washed the model with black ink, they came out really well.

Hey Zuggzugg. Just to be sure. You painted them all black, then wash with Devlan Mud, then highlights in grey? Also, did you drybrush the grey? They look great. And the bases just add to it. Congratulations!
