yo, that's fantastic paint work!
how old is he?
Lots of fun to be had being creative and if you're sneaky you can fit loads of education into the process too! (literature, art, maths etc)
Look forward to seeing more!
I think I'm a little confused, is the primaris painted by you or him?
I found that to get my boy to paint the best route was a) finding the army / models he liked most b) simplifying the paint scheme to a base coat, a wash and a final touch of colour on an easily accesible location, possibly highlighted.
he went with tyranids, so they're base coated white, washed with purple, the carapace is painted black and then given a grey dry-brush.
This gave him all the neccasary techniques and his army just keeps growing!
We've been playing a series of patrol mission (25 power level) (or approx 500 points, though we haven't used points yet) games where the winning army has to stay exactly the same while the loser can choose a new force, this has lead to lots of great games and a sense of progression, trial and error and learning of tactics and the game mechanics. They're also nice and quick!
We've also got a blood bowl league on the go with 4 teams, he painted the lizardman team (since they were the closest to tyranids)..
Also consider making terraina dn painiting backdrops for your photo's etc: loads of cool projects available!
It had to be Henry, I grew up watching him and bergkamp, viera etc. I almost did wilshere (guys my age and played for them since I started watching at like 10 until like 2 years ago) but then I realized that I would just be doing that for me.
Also that is officially the one and only primaries marine I own or have painted.
