These look really nice. I'm about to start painting my 1500 points of Newcrons and I'm not sure what paint scheme to do. I was thinking of spray painting the entire army over with black then white and adding other colours with a brush to hurry the process. Would you recommend this or should I take my time with each one?

It depends, if you are not careful the black won't show at all, an easy way to mass paint things is to Drybrush. Get a medium brush (maybe 1/4") and dip the tip in the white paint, then wipe MOST of it off on a cloth untill only a slight dusty amount remains. Take your miniature and quickly brush back and forth, over a short period of time a chalky buildup of the white paint will appear and give you a nice looking thin coat with shading from the black basecoat showing in the recesses of the model. This is a great way to get an army tabletop ready in just a few weeks. My other IG army is painted only to table top standard. This Steel Legion army is going to be higher tier paint job, i really like these models and i plan on taking time with them. Always remember, don't do what you think others will like, do what YOU like.

The picture is an example of something that was drybrushed, there are 5 different browns and 2 blues as well as some Pigments. The layers underneath and in the recesses are still visible while the other coats still show through without dominating the wall itself.
