Howdy! Let me preface this with the fact that while I have been painting minis for 10 years I am not a master of the form as I only get to paint on cancelled game nights.

I recent picked up two Khemru units from a nearby store that had them on sale. I like the figs though I've noticed that the joints where the calfs join the knees are really weak and any pressure placed on the model from above will bend the legs backwards.

I'm used to painting Beastmen and I normally prime them black, dry brush on a base coat and then slowly start to highlight and ink it with different colors of brown and black (with some red gore added in.)

What would you suggest for getting a nice, pristine looking coat of fur on the Khemru? For my force they are a local monastery of Khemru farmers who have joined my Harbringer to aid him in his quest to reclaim stolen treasures from Heliopolis. I was thinking of doing a white basecoat but I'm not sure I could dry brush it as well. Thoughts?

A month old but maybe worth a reply - I do a lot of drybrushing to paint my stuff. Something I have found that helps for this painting style - undercoat in black and then do a heavy coverage white drybrush over this as almost a second undercoat. You get some of the benefits of the white undercoat for raising colours and still get the nice darker shadowy areas too I find.
