2nd for TERMINATORS!
Third for Deathshroud
How do I get coaution stripes for my Iron Warriors that aren't too bright nor too faded, and how do I make them nice and dirty? How would I do them on IW space marine shoulders?
>>66236639The trick is to paint them bright, then weather them down, like they've done on that tank.
>>66236374They look pretty good for a flash photo.
What you painting girls and boys?
My first Leman Russ (first tank actually), I know it's not the best, the barrels aren't drilled, the spotlight is too flashy etc... but I'm happy it's finished.
>>66236797Nice to see a bit of weathering there.
>>66236754Decided to finally crack open the Imperiums greatest hero after finishing my ork pain boy
>>66236797I think its good.
Do you think its ok to show finished minis here? I finally got the light-box pictures for the mini's I showed VIP's here on last threads?
Finished this 4th company smash captain, thoughts?
>>66236914Wrong image, that one was a WIP, this is the finished one.
Minoanon here again. Not had much time to paint so not much advancement on these lads but I did get some new additions to the Herd and well. Turns out there's Minolets and Minochads.
>>66236923I dont like the pose, but good paint job.Maybe some text on the shield?
>>662369384chan please. Phone took these unrotated. Every program views these unrotated. Discord understands not to rotate them. Fucking Mongolian Basket Weaving Image board.
Just finished up a epic 6mm shadowsword in ww1 camo for my kreig. Thoughts and improvements?
>>66236923It's got a clean paintjob.
>>66237014As a bonus for suffering my shitty phone photo skills and rotational problems - have one of two Siege Dreadnoughts I have under construction. Maybe I'll make a lightbox if I have time. Or buy a cheap one. Sadly I have no camera beyond my shit tier phone.
We need more terrain up in here. Slowly putting together a crumbling building.
>>66236262>tfw watching endless videos on building, sculpting, painting, basing etc and browsing online stores for things you arent even close to requiring yet>tfw the minis all this 'prep' is actually for, just sit there weeks on end unfinishedThe worst part is, even when i do wanna work on em, my time is spent trying to figure out the perfect conversion idea or just sanding and fitting a couple of bits for an hour.
>>66237032Thanks. They all still need sanding, filling and final mold line checks before they're ready for priming. I thought my Atlantis Minotaurs were big but the Zealot boys make them look tiny. Sadly I don't have any GW Taurs for scale but the Atlantis ones are on 40mm bases and the Zealot ones are... 50mm I think.
>>66237044>Slowly putting together a crumbling building.Shouldn't you *start* with a building that's already assembled, and then slowly demolish it?
Hello WIP!I want to emulate this paintjob to the best of my ability, anyone have any idea how?Maybe theres a guide somewhere? what would you even call this kind of metallic? any help is appreciated!
>>66237045it's all a part of the process! as long as you're enjoying yourself don't stress.
>>66237198It looks like a really nice TMM paintjob, True Metallic Metal, basically painting Non-metallic metal style with actual metallic paints.For the rest, that model is incredibly extensively converted, that's all sculpted on (or added on with suitable bits), quite a bit of work to emulate.
>>66237198Washes. Lots of washes. Very thin washes.Someone on the FUUK forums did some river trolls in a similar way many years ago. Wish I could find the post now, but It's lost in time.
>>66237283I noticed the extensive conversion job! I wish I could emulate that, maybe someday if I become a wizard. is there a TMM painting guide you recommend? I appreciate your reply!>>66237367which color washes? I have each of the citadel shades, I would like to experiment.
>>66237417if i (a bad painter) was going to try to replicate that, I'd airbrush the whole model with gloss black enamel, airbrush alclad chrome over the top, then dab some heavily thinned black and brown oil paint into the details and a blue acrylic wash on the armor. finish with tamiya weathering pastels on the gun barrel
>>66237417This one by Massive Voodoo looks pretty good:https://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/2010/02/tutorial-painting-true-metallic-metal.htmlThis one looks a little simpler on the execution, so maybe better as a starting point:https://www.lightminiatures.com/tutorial-true-metallic-metals/
>>66237525I don't airbrush myself, but, i will attempt some of these techniques in practice. thank you!>>66237539thank you! I genuinely appreciate the help. going to watch the videos now
>>66237197I wonder if Awaken Realms is hiring any new artists
>>66237620I can't tell if that's a compliment or an insult to Knightanon.
>>66237417Actually, I think they used A LOT of thinned paint with a touch of flow improver, rather than actual brand washes. The only tip I can really remember is that you need to start with the paler colours, like yellow, and work up to the darker ones.
>>66237646I mean for all I know the dude commissioned them three times, there's no accounting for taste. Just seems like a criminal misuse of a $200 tool to do a large spray once or twice on each panel and call it good.
>>66238064True; I'm not a fan of AR's touting of their airbrushing as 'skill.' It's also very stylistic and sticks out but your mileage may vary on that one.I can do it with my airbrush and I'm not very good with an airbrush. I keep trying new things though and try to stay away from that weird 'power glow' thing they do.
>>66236923You can't take a bolt pistol and a TH+SS can you?
>>66238172here's your airburshed light sources bro
Because I was pained there was a Lieutenant I couldn't use. My take / kitbash for Haldor Icepelt, De-WOLFed. Painting is not quite finished.
>>66238591looks kinda ok, kinda shit but mostly i wonder why the martian dust.
>>66238620looks cool and a massive improvement over the embarassing furry.
>>66238750Thanks! I also replaced his gun as (to me) It looked like a regular Bolter and not a Bolt Rifle, so IDK
>>66238620Dead 'ard!>>66238462>You can't take a bolt pistol and a TH+SS can you?In the original Index Imperium: I, no, you couldn't. However, once the actual codices started coming out, the revised entry says a Captain comes bog-standard with a chainsword, master-crafted bolt gun, *and* a bolt pistol. You swap the chainsword for a storm shield, and swap the master-crafted bolt gun for a thunder hammer; that leaves you with the pistol and some grenades as your ranged attacks.
>>66238741>i wonder why the martian dust.It's a common tactic used by commission painters>Do you want OSL / Grime / dust on the base / lower part of the model? It looks so cool and realEr sure?>Fuck yesSo guess what, Mr commission doesn't have to bother with shading, highlighting the bottom 3rd of the mini, it's covered in texture paint / pigment / OSL, saves so much time and effort
>>66236878Finished stuff is fine to post, yes. you can also post non WH40k things here
>>66238730>If "Scope" Tsurusaki had a doghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMQVht42DNo
>>66238673>>66238693>>66238707>>66238730I like. From the new Fallout model range?
>>66238591I have a silly question for airbrushers.A lot of airbrushed models look dirty on closeups as the paint seems to clump like the model was dusty.But you also see a lot of pro painted miniatures where you do not see this, so is it equipment, skill or what is the main component that makes those figures like in picture so "rough"
>>66238462You cant not take a bolt pistol on a captain. All captains must take at least one.
>>66238172This but for basically every airbrushes model.
>>66237525>>66238064>>66238172>>66238591>>66238990>Le airbrush rage face
>>66238990It's spatter from poor airflow or a fucked up needle I think.
>>66236797you should get some vallejo washes brown for the brass then dark for guns barrel ect.your very neat good paint job Anon.
>>66238990Spatter as >>66239495 said. Happens if your nozzle is fucked/ have a crappy compressor or hold the airbrush too far from the mini and have shitty paint consistency.
>>66239439Then you missed the point of my post. Airbrushing is a skill, just like regular brushing. Git gud.
>>66236797If you have an airbrush I would weather a bit more grey above the current grey chunks. Also give the lamp a brown wash and then highlight, right now it's shit compared to the rest. I like the colours and stripes - I would love to see an infantry platoon to go with it!
>>66236993Edge highlight that bitch. Try desert tan or something. The problem with camo is that it works.. it breaks up the shape but visually it turns things into blobs
Does anyone know where I could possibly find some stencils for miniatures? I’m working on a couple armigers and I’m wanting to just airbrush the lettering for their names on their tops but I need really fucking small stencils. Also here’s a tiny picture of a porpherion just to emphasize my need for small.
>>66239871Why not print out the names in the font you want on some basic printer paper, then carve them out with an exacto knife?
>>66238814It's a bolt carbine.
From leddit:Speaking to the 'eavy metal painters at Warhammer Fest 2019 I had a few interesting questions answered:Q: Do you have to use all Citadel/Forgeworld paints/equipment?A: Generally, yes, although we do use Windsor & Newton Series 7 brushes (although the Citadel Artificer brushes are basically very similar, so some prefer those)Q: Do you work with the finecast models? How do you find the detail?A: We use the master version to paint for the box art, so sometimes finecast (because of the process) will lose it's detail, so what the 'eavy metal team paint usually has way more detail.Q: Do you also have to build & clean the models?A: It varies. Sometimes. Not always.Q: Where do you stand on the whole dropper bottles / Citadel tubs issue?A: Neither here nor there. Generally people use the standard tubs, but it can be personal preference for the painter.Q: Do you all use a wet palette?A: Not everyone. Some do, some don't - it's up to the painter.Q: Do you have magnifying goggles?A: Nope, but again, this is down to the painter - some might.Q: Do you still have loads of older paints, or do you have to use the current range?A: Those who have been painting with GW for a long time tend to have drawers and drawers of older paints, but generally in order to facilitate tutorials and walkthroughs etc (as well as the box-art guides) we have to use the current range (but the woman I spoke with did say she had a green colour in her drawer from a while back that she LOVES)Q: What do you make of the new Contrast range?A: The painter I spoke to most hand't used them yet but some of the painters had, and there seemed to be a general consensus that they were great and posed a good opportunity for blending and such. The new Contrast paint doesn't work well with water though so you will have to buy the medium to thin it for glazing and blending. I also asked if it behaved more like an oil wash, filling recesses and most who I asked responded that it did.
>>66238591Over the top
>>66239977>Q: Do you also have to build & clean the models?>A: It varies. Sometimes. Not always.GW keeps a clutch of "modelling gnomes" (read: malnourished orphans) for building their minis confirmed.
>>66239451I don't have a problem with airbrushed models, I have a problem with poorly airbrushed models. Why on earth would you want your models to look like a $30 sidewalk caricature?
>>66236326It seems doable. There are plenty of guides on making clothes for dolls, and that's basically what you'd be doing. Maybe fill in the joint gaps anywhere they aren't covered, and sand/smooth those areas over.
>>66240041Since they work off masters, they're likely the built by the sculpting team.
Bros, im seething. I was following a guide for yellow and i started with choas black prime and then i was going to spray averland sunset. The spray came out hit the model very watery/bubbly and looks thick as fuck when it dried.The black primer went on perfectly and its good spray weather.Where did i fuck up? Not enough shaking?
>>66237197Why would those parts be glowing?
>>66240089I have a problem with poorly painted models regardless of what tool was used.
>>66240484interestingly I had the same issue years back, with a different yellow primer, army painter. I think it does have to do with the yellow pigment really needing a ton of shaking. That or you got a defective fucked up batch.
>>66240485Because fuck you, that's why?I don't know either, and the whole "overspray to do OSL" thing airbrush painters do annoys the fuck out of me to be honest, as is their need to make random shit glow
>>66240484ps i waited 2.5 hours after spraying chaos black
>>66240484I've had good luck stripping everything but the primer by soaking the models in clorox toilet cleaner. only for paint on tho, dunno about sprays
>>66240557>>66240484>>66240531id be scared to be double priming anyway. But I guess the citadel colour "primers" arent actually primers anyways?
>>66240567total soak time you did for plastic models?
>>66236639I don't know if it's for you but I paint a flat yellow, shade with extremely thin burnt umber then glaze everything with a bright yellow. Obviously much easier with an airbrush on a vehicle but she technique with hand painting. The weathering comes after but important not to just totally wash the yellow as it just makes it look messy rather than weathered. Lots of other better ways though I'm sure.
>>66240570>>66240531I just shook the can for 2 minutes and tested on a cultist and it looks like the same result. Do I take it back to my LGS and get it refunded? Do i try to get them to replace my models lol
>>66240484Looks like you simply sprayed too much on?GW paint isn't primer, aka it doesn't "shrink" over the model when it dries, if you spray it on thick it stays thick so be careful, however here are my general srpaying tips.1. Shake shake shake that can for at least 2 minutes2. Soak the can in a tub / jar / container of hot water, shake the can once or twice, put it back it, take it out, the container should be warm to touch3. follow instructions, hold at a distance, spray in good light so you can see everything and not miss anything, spray in short bursts
>>66240766I'll try, thank you
Help /tg/! Goblin Green or brown base for the fists
>>66240543We do it to dab on cavemen like you and to watch you seethe.
Trying to make something for 30k White Scars legion. Maybe Knight-Errant? Need to swap someting for the chaplain too, bolter perhaps.
>Taken my antidepressants enough days in the row that I finally have the will to model again>MFW I start priming my models with brush on VallejoHoly shit I forgot how much easier this was than waiting for the perfect day to spray
>>66240965Of the two, I'd have to say the brown, but that's only because the contrast with the green against the rest of the base (and maybe the model, too - very few of my ladz are yellow!) bothers me. Of course, your bases are a lot more complex than mine.
>>66240965Bases without black rims are universally terrible
>>66241354And so another one joins the brush-on masterrace
>>66240484anon i have heard a trick from an old scale modeler to use tamiya spray can pink for a undercoat then spray your yellow, haven't tried it myself but it seems interesting
>>66236854Don't wanna see box, wanna see mini.
Hey /wip/, I need some advice on drilling the barrels on my Thousand Sons Rubric Gunner's Soulreaper Cannon. It has the rotating Gatling/minigun barrels, and there's a larger barrel-shaped bit at the bottom that protrudes. Is that an elongated barrel or does it keep the rotating barrels attached?What I'm really asking is: if I drill my barrels out, do I drill out the longer gold barrel (if it's a barrel)?Pic related, bottom bit is longer than the rest and I haven't found d a reference image that confirms it's a barrel.
>>66239871>>66239908What this guy saidIt's the cheapest and the best. Not to mention exactly what you'd get if you bought a 5 dollar stencil anyway.
Put the shredded sponge on the tile, added some to the other two tiles as well. All that's left now is priming.
>>66240965If you don't do green I'd say gray or brown over black, black just always looks unfinished. Gray or brown ties in better with the soil you've used.
>>66236993And shade before you highlight. If your skills are not yet very advanced, the quickest way to do it is put a dark wash over the whole thing, wait for it to dry, and then drybrush the whole thing with pale tan or something.
so my cheap airbrush hose finally died, gonna grab another one sometime when i get to harbor freight next. in the mean time i have a paasche talon that has been giving me trouble, sprays for a few seconds then starts not spraying then fills the cup with bubbles but them starts to leak out the back near the trigger and it bubbles out of the cup. i have gones and cleaned all of the airbrush and it still leaks, one of the o rings is missing but i have sealed that with teflon tape and no air appears to be leaking. any help? should i take it to a local airbrush store?
>>66241518>if I drill my barrels out, do I drill out the longer gold barrel (if it's a barrel)?Yes. The bullets come out of the gold part. They don't come out of the silver part except to then pass through the gold part toward your target.
>>66241518so that is the barrel that shoots out bullets,the barrel spins around and only shoots one bullet out of that barrel. drill out all the barrels, if you have access to it try and make an awl out of a small needle on a belt sander that's sharp will help to guide the drill bit and keep it from wandering
>>66241518This is GW's. Drill 'em all.
>>66241597Thanks anon>>66241616That's a really cool tip. If I ever expand my operation I'll give this a try.>>66241634All is dust! Death to the false emperor!
>>66241518>that seam line down the middle of the gun
>>66241526This is my new favourite tile on your KT board. Somehow I can't understand how I've never seen corrugated cardboard used as corrugated iron before.
>>66241697Thanks. I got it from the terrain tutor, who used it for his modular trenches.
>>66236797Solid paintjob, the dirt at the bottom could be on bigger area. The assembly is kinda shoddy there mold lines on barrel and visible gaps. But great for a first vehicle overall. Mine first was over the top dirty.
To you anons that gave me the tip to add foliage to some branches, thank you dearly! It helped improve his look a lot!
Trying to uphold mine mini-a-week challenge but i just realized I'll have some time on sunday and that's it. It's looking bleak bois.
Should I buy it, lads?Also, would buying a pintle weapons kit for this be pointless?
What the fuck have I painted.Fuck you Michael this model you gave me is retarded
It looks like a monkey man with firehands and gun, I think. I really dont know
>>66242233>>66242250Dunno what it is even supposed to be but it gave me a good chuckle.
>>66242143Unless you own an airbrush, painting that will make you weep tears of blood.But yeah, it's fucking cool. Do it.
Need advice, how to nurglefy those wings? Will it be enough if I just drill some holes and paint it? She gonna be my Lord of Plagues but Im not sure if keeping wings is good idea.
Working on some little personal touches to my Lord Discordant.Thought fusing the rider together would be cool. Taking a while, though. I have very quickly learned to let cabled cure and go at it a bit at a time because I'm an idiot.
I just got a ton of Sprues and Bits for $15, including Magnus' Armor and Sword, two Magnus Heads, enough Bolters and Chainswords to equip a full Tzaangor squad, and plenty of Lizardmen bits to give my Thousand Sons some Salamander-esque Tabbards, Capes, and Pauldrons.Oh, and several heads and other bits for my Tzeentch Soup Army.
>>66239871If you're willing to go with transfers instead of stencils, you can get transfer paper remarkably cheap. Make sure you get the right stuff (there are Inkjet and Laser versions). But it lets you print off shitloads of stuff for remarkably cheap - one 8.5x11 "letter"/A4 page will get you enough for an army and then some. You can also do large strips of things like hazard stripes, dags, and checkers for throwing at flat plates instead of having to stencil them all on or worse yet, freehand it.>>66240965Green contrasts too hard. Unless you're running a bright green table, of course. I'd personally go with a Bestial Brown equivalent instead of the chocolate brown, YMMV.
>>66241697>Somehow I can't understand how I've never seen corrugated cardboard used as corrugated iron before.I used to do it a lot before I switched over to actually corrugating aluminum cans. You can use one of those "toothpaste tube squeezers", get a steel one off of Amazon for about $10. I was too broke for that for a few months, so I made a weird little tool out of tongue depressors, which got me the stuff in pic related. You'll also need a pair of tin snips or the like; heavy-duty kitchen shears are ~$5 at Harbor Freight as well.
>>66239977Sounds like a painter who was worried about getting put against the wall when he got back to the office

>>66243194You guys crack me up
>>66240484You don't need to prime if you're using a GW spray. Watch warhammer tv videos, they routinely use their colored sprays as a base layer without primer.
>>66243081Those eyes look ... familiar.
>>66242416I thank you for your words of wisdom.This will be a nice Deathwatch Mastodon.
Body tidied up, I like it much more now, but taking a look at the pictures revealed a couple of rough spots that I need to fix. Face is very /wip/, it doesn't pop enough in my opinion. I am really unsure about which color to pick for the mane, any ideas?
>>66242143>GWs second coolest HH vehicle>mobile bunker of deathyes, if you can afford and justify it you should get it, and it's a centerpeice model, if you want a pintle wepaon what's an extra £10 on top of £300
>>66244123I'm American so it's 500
>>66243993Mane would be fine dark grey like it is. Give it yellow eyes.
>>66243993Looks good so far, I'll say this since my shading looked exactly the same as yours at that point; go back over and do a gentle blend onto the highlights with your base colors. It will make the muscle tone look a lot less jagged. As for the face, get some deeper shadows in, same as you did for the body, it has plenty of space for some blending. Attached is a WIP of mine, don't have a finished shot
>>66243081So you're gonna strip him and repaint him up nice huh?Good on ya anon. No model deserves to look like that
After playing some of the games and reading a novel or two I decided to buy a buncha CSM to try and make them into Word Bearers, these are the first few. Apparently these are outdated minis but the newer ones are available only online, and at obscene prices. I got a bunch more left, including a Hellbrute and some more cultists.It's too easy to throw too much shade into them but I like the way the darker lines define details, specially on armor.
Finally got these lads done. Pretty happy with 'em, even if the chains look a little goofy.
I've gotten some SCE recently and am thinking about how I want to paint them. I dislike the gold and colored armors on them but I overuse gunmetal/silver so I was thinking maybe copper or brass.What cloth color should I use to go with it? I was initially leaning copper+teal but I think it might clash too much now. Maybe brass+teal would work better.
>>66238915yep. it's got a dead synth molded into the base, too!
>>66244921Resin or plastic? Saw a video comparing the two and the resin's much nicer.
>>66245014resin, the plastic ones only come with the starter kithere's an eyebot I did the other day
New painter trying to paint some nurgle-ish green before i paint actual DG.I'm fairly happy with the green, but is there a way to make it less crusty looking? It looks smooth to the eye but obvious on camera
>>66245238you aren't thinning your paint, and likely are painting in an area and with tools that have collected a lot of dust. Honestly with a wash or two all that crustiness can only add to the nurglishness

>>662447491. Photos are bad. The minis are not lighted properly and are out of focus. Consider making a lightbox or just stick the minis into the fridge (multiple sources of soft light, white background)2. The minis blur together. You need edge highlights to break up large patches of single color.3. Bone is better washed with seraphim sepia, not nuln oil. Right now it looks indistinguishable from the metals.4. Drill your barrels.5. Add soot to the flamer muzzle. There's a tutorial on it in duncan's redemptor video.Just in general, marines do not need an all-over wash, it just makes them look dirty. Wash the recesses only.
>>66245895Is there a way to clear out the excess wash that doesn't involve dunking the whole mini in brake fluid for a day and paint again? Water only seems to spread it further.
>>66245974You can paint over the raised areas with the original pre-washing color, leaving the wash in recesses. That's actually what you're supposed to do according to GW tutorials.

Everyone hates airbrushing so much and use Awaken Realms as poor examples - which I agree. Are there any examples of airbrushing people like? And what's the difference?
Anyone got hints on how to make the best out of Army Painter stuff?
>>66246535>Everyone hates airbrushing so muchStop, anon, you're being memed on.
>>66246551Oh, it's just a meme?
>>66246568The office gifs are, certainly.
>>66246568It's some moron who got told to thin his paints one to many times and now he has diarrhea on his keyboard every time someone mentions airbrushes. He's been doing it for a while now. I've been trying to get help with some of my airbrush technique and every time I post on here it's 4 office gifs and then when no one responds he starts screaming at himself.
>>66246535>what's the difference?generally speaking, no lazy attempts at OSLairbrushing has a lot of functions that would otherwise be a huge pain in the ass with a physical brush, so there's no hate beyond the same hatred that exists for people who lazily misuse any other painting method
>>66246737Unironically go to youtube. I find with an airbrush it's nice to see what's actually going on when people describe how they paint.
>when the shader hits just right
airbrush good as a tool>priming indoors, basepainting large vehicles, doing gradients, zenital highlightingairbrush bad as a crutch>shitty one spurt "OSL", whole paint scheme being just a gradient with zero details

So, I’m midway through painting my first model, you all have been a lot of help. I think I’ve got the hang of the technique of washing, and want to add a colored stripe. With the surface as flat as it is I’m thinking about using masking tape? Tried searching for some simple tutorial, but no luck yet. Any tips? Or just leave this old clunker dirty grey?

WIP of my latest project. I was going for a flayed flesh and glazed thinned Blood for the Blood God over it, but I don't hate it as a table top model.When I do my second one, beyond a smaller brush than my size 0 Series 7, I am going to go with a Carroburg Crimson wash over the muscle instead.

Anyone ever tried to add articulations to a minature? I have some leftover kotobukiya joints that are too tiny to fit anywhere but in tiny model.I was looking at primaris marines or scouts to experiment on with that, they seems to have the easiest proportions to work with.

>>66236262I need advice on isopropyl alcoholBeing a baguette it turns out its hard as shit to get here, however I can get ethyl alcohol for pretty damn cheap at literally every store that sells cleaning supplies.

My vallejo dark sea blue looks green. Like a dark turquoise-y colour. In fact, my scale75 deep sea blue is also slightly green. Does dark sea blue basically mean turquoise?
>>66249629>>66249659>still giving him (you)sAt this point you deserve each other.
>>66249754Looks kinda in the middle between dark blue and dark green to me. I suggest you stop being concerned with the name and just use a color if you like it.
>>66243701The pouch on the shoulder looks silly
>>66249783Well the reason I'm confused is because I bought it expecting blue, but got something green-ish. Looking at the bottle, its pretty dark blue-ish but once thinned out its pretty green. It was unexpected so I was wondering if my batch was weird and wanted to confirm if it was indeed meant to be dark turquoise.
How much does the inside of a valkyrie show if I leave the hatch open? Also if glue the hull shut how hard is it to stick the gunner in?Pic quasi-unrelated
>>66246539Stainless steel ball bearing and a fuck ton of shaking. Consistency tends to be all over the place without it and I have problem's with it still. I'd just plain prefer Vallejo over Army Painter if your local store has access to it, but otherwise it's just fine. Out of all the modern miniature paint companies, they would be pretty middle of the pack.
>>66246539>>66249921>Stainless steel ball bearingNever do this. Ball bearings rust and ruin paints, "stainless" steel or not. Use glass or plastic.
>>66246539>>66249921Listen to this anon>>66249965pic related is me getting out metal bearings from paints I've bought second hand. I lost a whole Sunday afternoon to this shite.

>>66248785my looncousin, got the long wait for contrast before I start my boys. I plan on using the red contrast over a yellow undercoat, but that special contrast spray has me worried that the undercoat may need a certain consistency to work.
>>66242114Check out the terrain tutor on YouTube, he has a few videos about making trees you could use some of those techniques.
How is my first attempt at painting? I could use some tips, I feel like I’m over thinning the paint but it seems to clumpy if I don’t
>>66242589Please clean all the mould lines before you paint it after spending so much time modelling this thing. All down the side of the tail there is one big old mould line, along with a few others at random all over it
>>66248677>I've been painting large flat surfaces forever and never had a problemLots of people's personal experience mate. Just because you never had a problem with large flat surfaces doesn't mean no one else ever did.My guess would be either that you have low standards of perfection, and therefore don't notice that you're making a total pig's ear of your large flat surfaces. The only alternative is that you possess preternatural skills the rest of us lack.
>>66236262Does anyone know the darkest black blue paint is? like pic related.
>>66242906Wow. Good effort for practical problem solving.
Testing out different head options. If I go with the one without helmet I GS some fu man chu-staches on him.Oh yeah, he's going to be White Scar.
>>66250614Thank you, you might be right.
>>66246539You have to shake the fuck out of them, and even stir them if they're really bad, and the coverage will still be shit even once you get them to finally mix up properly. The money you save on them is not worth the time you will spend trying to get them to work and the extra coats you'll have to apply in order to get decent coverage.You get what you pay for.If you value your sanity, just get Vallejo Model Color, Reaper Master Series, or Formula P3 instead. Avoid Citadel (I'd still use Army Painter over Citadel, just on principle) and Vallejo Game Color (unless there's a specific color you really need, they just aren't as good as Model Color).If you really want to go the extra mile and get something super high quality, look at Scale 75 and War Colours.
>>66249338Is Kenny from Next Level Painting exceptiable? I find it hard to fall asleep with hearing him say "Yo Dawg."
>>66250953I like the helmet one better personally
>>66251535I feel somewhat embiggened when I watch him, personally.
>>66250939Not sure if it's exactly that but my Vallejo German Grey is similar blueish black.
>>66251823Thanks mate I'll check it out.
>>66250200You never know unless you try and, as mentioned before, it is incomplete.
Managed a better lit picture of my flayed harp. Still not on the technical level I want bit the look is decent table top.
>>66250939Why not just paint a dark grey and wash with a blue wash to darken it down while tinting it?That ot you could just mix something like Abbadon Black with Macragge Blue in a 1:1 mix to make your own color. I've seen it used as a base color on armour for Deathwatch.
>>66249965Would dollar store craft beads, like for bracelets and the like, work?
>>66252375As long as they're plastic, probably.
>>66252375plastic or glass beads, sure. Those should be just fine. Nothing porous like clay though.
Picked up some Colorshift Paints the other day. Figured they might look interesting as the scales for my Deepkin. Any do's/don't's or experience you guys can share before I try 'em?
Got the primer primed haven't painted in months decided to try my hand at flesh tones again
>>66252341Don't like mixing my own colours.
>>66252685don't use the over white, they work best on black (and gloss black at that). And you may need a fair number of layers to get a strong enough effect.
>>66252685I have the bright red metallic they do, I haven't used it on a mini yet but the 3 layers I did on a test model makes it seem like it's the best colored metallics on the market, (Not counting Gold/silver with tamiya clear which is probable still superiour)
>>66243194Or a furry.https://youtu.be/xrJVZZLv2GE
>>66252710I'd use the wash method then.
>>66249809>Sauce?It's from the beginning of the Gunnm (Battle Angel Alita) anime. The scene in the live action movie with Christoph Waltz as Ito is very nearly identical.
>>66252710Then you’re an idiot
>>66253018I didn't say I didn't do it I just don't like doing it, I got dropper bottles and stuff but I just like getting stuff straight from the pot when I can.

>>66252326That looks sick I'm going to borrow from this when I paint my own

>>66241592The lack of the o-ring might be the cause of your problems. The only other thing might be tightening the screw bit on the end. It fixed my GSW airbrush, ao it’s worth a try.

So I've bought about 100 of these guys from Warlord, now I wanna do them up as Imperial Guard. Desert-themed, just to make it even harder for myself. I was thinking of using tan, maroon, and light blue as my main colours, but aside from definitely doing the outer jackets tan I'm struggling to decide what to paint which colour. >Blue pants and maroon waistcoat? >Slightly darker tan pants, maroon/blue waistcoat?>Dark tan jacket, light tan pants and waistcoat, maroon accents, light blue for veterans?>Something else???Help please, I like the colours and the combo but I can't figure out how they should fit together.
>>66254695You have 100, paint up some ones as test models.
Please stop shitting up the thread guys. There are plenty of other boards and general threads where you can go for shit posting. This goes for both the pro and anti airbrush posters. If you see a post you don't like, just don't reply. Even this post is a waste of the bump limit.
>>66254717Fair enough. I still have to wait for them to arrive though, and I'm very excited, so I wanted to get the scheme figured out ahead of time.
>>66248025Help or tutorials on re positioning? >would this be tourney legal as it it about the proper size and would be clearly marked with both weapons?>Would it need to be since it only has one loadout?
>>66254695God bless Sprue Sales, amirite? Got 120 AWI British Infantry, plus 2 Cannons, Crew, and Mounted Generals for $32 myself.
Does anyone have any recommendations or advice for making a helmet for a Daemon Prince? I'm not 100% sure how to go about making one, or if there is anything good out there to use for it.
>>66254695May I ask why you want maroon and blue as your primary colors for desert troops?
>>66254810Depends alot on what god he's from.
>>66254242>newfagJohnny poster posted his figure non stop with the words johnny adding no contribution to anything. Got told to fuck off multiple times Guess simpletons like you are impressed by repeated things.
>>66254835Khorne. Ideally, it'd like to make a helmet with a T shaped gap, like the Berzerker helmet, possibly explosing the lower jaw of the Daemon,
>>66247961Yeah! so your scheme is pretty cool as is, you've got that chocolate brown as your primary, pink as the secondary and green as your tertiary (although I think your green is subjectively a little dark and you could go a shade limeier)First, Your primary. This one is easy, just make the woody parts brownNext up pink. I think the "skin", branch tips, and leaf cloak should be pink to keep in line with your other models. This leaves four major areas: helmet/horns, weapon/shield, glow effects, and the giant moth. for the helmet its kind of a question of whether you want it to be a metal helmet or a wood helmet, I think brass or just the same brown would work. I'd pair brown horns with the brass helmet and pink or green horns with the wood. I'm not 100% sold on the helmet matching the body color as shown. I would match whatever you choose for the helmet to the weapon and shield, so if you go brass, go brass. For your glow effects I think that a traditional wood elf amber yellow could work well and tie in with your honey comb. Lastly, the moth. I'm hesitant to recommend a pink moth, I think it would be too much. So i'd go either green or brown. Personally, I would try and emulate a lunar moth
>>66254814Tan as primary colour, with maroon to match my marines and blue because I dig the way it contrasts with tan (also Tuareg are cool)>>66254801Indeed, got 100 infantry and 30 cavalry for 30 britbucks
>>66254810Try getting you hands on an iron blaster head from the AoS Ogor range. Looks great on a demon prince.
>>66253905Blue stuffs good for bits, and anything that doesn't heat up is fine to cast in it. Plaster, Daz Clay, Milliput, Greenstuff, Plumbers Epoxy all work. Also don't buy blue stuff, get the clear stuff from japan, it's cheaper and the original anyways.
>>66254884I really like the idea of the armor/weapon being wood! I think I will probably go with that. And yeah I was thinking green for the moth. That or go with a blue-ish color like they have in the example.
>>66250200>not knowing how to barter
>>66252326God that's legit creepy.Nicely fucking done anon, nicely done.
>>66255347You mean "haggle", right?Old Exo-Armours routinely go for over $20.00US, easy. Yes, I understand it doesn't have the bosspole, but if it did? Then the seller wouldn't have any problem getting double that.Only one of mine (>>66253049) has the bosspole, and it seems only right to make him a sergeant, but that means I'd have to cut off the power fist to give him a power sword. That's something I'm not crazy about doing.
