Hey NL Anon, your gift arrived in one piece. Thank you a lot, especially for serving as anti grinch volunteer.

Great idea with underworlds, I looked at this game before but didn't pull the trigger. Now I can guve it a try, even if it sucks miniatures are top notch, I'm already planning to do some undeads to accompany vampires in Sobah, opr or whatever. No idea for the crabs yet but it will come. Prints will most likely end in terrain pieces as cool statues. Sorry for opening early but I coulnd't wait till december.

Happy '22.
>>
>>82984328
I tend to work in batches of 10. It takes me about two weeks to finish a batch which is probably 2 hours per guy.
>>
>>82985649
Glad to hear you're happy with the gifts. I never played underworlds myself, I mainly use the Khornate warband that I have as minis for D&D.

Happy '22 to you too.

I'm in the market for a new lamp. Are $200 Benq lamps worth the cost or is it just influencers pushing unnecessary shit? Could I get by with a $50 LED lamp from Amazon?

Are mounted magnifying lenses with LED lights or not a meme product?
The same applies for head mounted magnifying lenses.

Do these products actually help with painting miniatures or are they just something professional painters buy when the hobby becomes their job?

>>82986156
Depends on the person. Some love them, others say it kills depth perception.
>>
>>82986156
Depends on
>how good your sight is
>how good the lighting in your workspace is
If you can make out little details clearly without any aid, and your set-up gives you good even lighting all over, then you don't really need one. If you've got poor near-vision acuity, or uneven lighting which causes you to struggle to properly illuminate small details, then it's not a bad investment

No idea what you are talking about, the lines are almost impossible to notice after a few coats of paint. Yeah, you can notice it if you zoom in real close, but it's pretty easy, convenient and cost efficient to work with. For the cost of 5 regular busts or 75mm models you already hit even and within a year it radically cuts down the price of the hobby,u while giving you the benefit of a massive easy to get range.
Pic related was print on a 400$ of total investment, for a printer, curing machine, safety equipment for two persons and 3 litres of resin.
I also don't expect it to completely push out traditional casting. But, it's going to radically change how things work. Why use boring and soulless GW marines, when you can find 15 different alternatives to your liking on Cults3D? And get them for a fraction of the price. Yeah, it does require some knowledge, but not that much if you are mildly competent.

A bit thicker paint isn't that noticeable on a 75mm figure either because they're 27 times the size of an infantry model.

Starting a Genestealer Cults army with the background lore that they're a bunch of labourers on an ocean world that work on and in big city sized oilrig-esque platforms.
What do you guys think would be a good colour scheme for that, and if anyone knows of any, could you point me in the direction of any cool bits that might help get the "works underwater a bunch" vibe across?

>>82986710
Rust red, with some barnacles and seaweed stuff.
Maybe make some old school diving helmets for underwater welders.
>>
>>82986409
Uh, I don't think they are 27 times larger.
But in any case, it's hardly noticable on 32 mm models.

>>82986710
either go for old school diving gear colours, so lots of bronze and orange/tan, or teals and blues.

YMMV but personally I hated one when I tried it, putting something physically between my face and my hands made me feel...disconnected, like I was trying to operate my hands by remote control with some latency. It was just wonky.

Magnification is still useful though, I use jeweller's loupes. If you have specs you can get cheapass clipon ones from ebay(they sell sets, but I've only ever used the 2x and 5x ones from the one I bought), or you can buy ones with a frame. I've found it most useful to just use a single loupe on my non-dominant eye, that way I can easily switch between magnification or not by just closing my dominant eye which is handy for stuff like freehand or sculpting small details to quickly check everything's where it's supposed to be and in proportion relative to everything else.

Hey kan-man, I'm finally getting time to work on making a couple kans with the bits you sent me. One question though, do you have any pointers on how you assemble the limbs? Is it just sprue bits with plasticard around it or was there something else you liked using?
>>
>>82987951
I like to use slightly wider bits of wooden round sticks, then put some greenstuff to glue on the plasticard nice and neat without much effort.
You can also use bits of plastic that is somewhat square on it, same effect probably easier to do.
Also pin all the bits, makes it a lot sturdier.

Well there's no depth, shading, or contrast of any kind but the lines are reasonably clean and the paint isn't too chalky so solid effort. If the print lines aren't too bad I'd suggest a wash or look into stippling if they are.

Just waiting for some glue to dry then I can attach the butt plate shim. Then it's onto the putty for cleanup. I still cant decide if I should drop the size of the tubing from 40mil to 35mil. I did make the side thigh struts have a 25mil step down which I really like how it turned out.

>>82990531
Anon im not going to lie to you that looks like you did it bad on purpose. You need to start over, go get some degreaser from your local hardware store (simple green, LA totally awesome purple power if you can find it) and get an old toothbrush. Soak the mini overnight, and scrub it down.

Take a picture of your wet palette please. It should not make your paint watery. Also as a beginners advice, "thinning your paints" is a meme and you should not add thinner or water to your paint pots (ive done that lol). What it actually means is dont get paint glob on your brush.

Wait 10 layers of watery paint did this? Are you sure? It looks like a wash in certain places like her left thigh but everywhere else it seems like the paint was just blobbed on because the brush strokes are visible. It honestly looks like you didn't water the paint down enough.

No, it literally means thin your paint. Not to the pot, but mixing it to the paint on the palette. But yeah, you don't want too much paint on the brush either.

>>
>>82990707
the consistency (or body) of a paint depends obviously on the manufacturer and can vary even from paint to paint in any given range. Not to mention it depends on what you are trying to achieve how you mix up your paint. You may want more or less flow or opacity and there are all sorts of different applications where one or the other is more useful.
I don't want to sound too rude, but if you don't know that much you might want to avoid stating your opinions as fact until you got a bit more experience.

If your paint beads up like this the second you paint a line on your palette, then your paint has too much water in it.

Also as a new painter one of the first things you should know is that white paint sucks ass. Avoid using it at all cost. The pigment used to make white paint is physically large and clumps together making it miserable to use. You will hear a lot of people say "yeah you dont paint white as white lol" and this is why.

Additionally, with any color which has poor coverage its best to use a transition paint. Rakarth flesh is one of my go to paints for this.

So this is too watery?

Also, why do my paints have tiny bubbles in them?
>>
>>82990752
Yes and none of this matters. When you apply paint to your wet palette you pull paint off from the blob and work from there. The thicker the paint in the reserve blob the better. I am telling him what I am because when I was a beginner I would start my paint sessions by mixing water into my paints because of how many people said "thin your paints". My pot of ulthuan grey is like milk consistency still.
>>
What's the point of preserving it? Do you have alzheimers and can't remember it without the physical object? It's a waste of a mini.

Strip the thing and paint it again. And if it still sucks do it again.

>>82990865
It looks pretty watery to me is that fresh out of the bottle? One thing to know about a wet palette is that while it does help keep your paints usable for a session, given enough time water will osmose into the paint and turn it all runny.
>>
>>82990865
Anon, "too watery" isn't exactly a thing, it just depends on what you are doing with the paint. You don't paint with the water though, so always make sure you wick it off your brush by touching it to a paper towel first. Then you touch your brush to the mini. Thats the consistency you want, whats actually going on the mini. If you feel like the coverage is shit then add less water next time and repeat the process, but it should still be the same consistency going on the model.

25mil round for narrow thigh tubing
100mil and 62mil round for knee hinges
7/32 inch tube for the thighs, which I bent to be ovular, and a segment cut length-size to form a halfpipe which I laminated to the back of the calves, after removing all the original tubing

The only part of the original terminator legs I don't use are the thighs. Ive seen some clever use of BB's for joints, but I don't have any yet.

I would bring my brush onto the model and the paint would disappear from it. Maybe the brush was still moist from cleaning. Lots of things to be wary of it seems.

Ok I just noticed this, that paint is the scale75 brand paint. From my limited understanding this paint sucks ass at everything except glazing, which it is specifically made for. It might also be pre-thinned for airbrushing, which is thinner than you want for regular painting (I think), dont actually have an airbrush. If someone else who has these paints could chime in?

Might be a little unwieldy? Probably you will be fine. Id say go ahead and start using it. My go-to brush is a size 2. I do have a 3 and 4 but havn't tried to use them yet. So far my experience has been use as large a brush as you can fit for the job. They are all equally pointy when new, and the larger brush holds more water and keeps the paint further away from the ferrule.

When paints are wet they are more glossy. Being glossy improves opacity. You have to wait for them to dry to know what's up. If you paint with acrylics this should take 5 minutes, not the next morning though.

Short of some limited run resin garage kits GW minis are the most expensive ones around.

If you want cheap miniatures historicals are a great place to look. The market is more competitive and you'll get a lot more minis for your money. The money that'll get you 10 GW minis will get you 30-50 historicals.
If you want fantasy minis you can also look into the Northstar Frostgrave and Oathmark ranges.

If you just want a couple of odds and ends to practice various techniques on different surfaces look into Reaper Bones Black. You can get a pladin and some kind of monster from them for a couple of bucks as well, if it's just about practicing the painting.

I'm not sure they'll do painting lessons, it's a small store and they still aren't open for games.
I am aware of reaper minis but I'm looking to practice those specific things since I don't get many chances painting Eldar. The AoS minis look bigger than reaper's and have wider, less divided areas for me to paint. Plus I'm going to be near my GWS later so I might as well drop by and support it.
>>
>>82986710
Hook their gasmasks up to tanks (could use flamer tanks like the backpack cadian one, or smaller tanks from other flamers) since the filter based ones they have would work badly under water.
>>
>>82993385
Drybrushing will definitely ruin your brush for anything other than drybrushing, use a dedicated drybrush or something junky, makeup brushes do pretty good as drybrushes but are hard to clean.
>>

>I am aware of reaper minis but I'm looking to practice those specific things since I don't get many chances painting Eldar.
as I said you can easily get some platemail wearing paladin and any monster of your choice from them.

It was more if there were any models like the stormcast with large surface areas to paint nmm on. Paying less is always good but it seems with the added cost of shipping it'll cost a little more to buy from reaper plus I'll have to wait for it to ship.
Reaper does have some cool monsters so I could buy one for practicing flesh tones instead. Personally I'm more interested in their cav mechas but they're 10mm so not the best for practice.
In the end I think I'll go with the AoS models to practice and buy some cav or minis like this to paint for fun. Thanks for the suggestions.

I've used the grey one and it seemed alright. There were some missed spots that I think were my fault, but generally I felt like I had to add "two coats" even while the primer was semi-dry to get a nice grey covering.
>ArmyPainter Brush on Primer
I've never used it but as far as I know it is the only primer that is solely for brush on priming.
One drop of the stuff allegedly covered a whole 28mm miniature as seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16Qx1LFF8io

The one thing I do not like about the ArmyPainter brush on primer is just how small the quantities are being sold at.
I've tried googling and I couldn't find any other primer solely meant for brush on only. They all seem to be for airbrush but can be brushed on.
Anybody know of any by any chance? Sometimes I'm feeling a bit old school and just can't be arsed to use the airbrush for priming. Especially when planning on painting older looking miniatures like the dwarfs from warmonger miniatures.

It doesn't matter, that's just gw's paint by numbers system.
You can brush it on or spray it on, whatever you want.
>>
>>82994250
>New to painting
I'd reccomend you use vallejo paint, quality is better than citadel but the price is about the same. If you absolutley want to get the same colors here's a handy resource you should book mark. https://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Paint_Range_Compatibility_Chart

>How do I undercoat?
Do you mean undercoat or base coat? I think you mean base coat based on context, in which case yeah, that's what you'd want to do, thin layers to build up opacity. You can use a spray can just fine, but again the GW spray cans are more expensive than they should be.
>>
>>82994250
>spray
Do you mean prime or undercoat? Because to prime you need either spray or brush on primer -and GW no longer makes brush on primer so you need to venture out of their walled garden and *gasp* purchase products from another company.
>>
>>82994295
I’m new to these terms. Basically I glue the gray pieces and I need to give it a first coat of paint.
>>
>>82994250
spray paint is fine, the only exceptions can be for leadbelcher (the finish is closer to iron hands steel than pot leadbelcher plus washes may be harder to control because of the finish) and chaos black (if you want the model to be black you'll want to go over the model with abaddon black after spraying because the finishes are different)
>>

Yeah, that's the base coat. Under coating is something different that you don't need to worry about as a beginner. It's an advanced technique.

I should add that you should prime first, before painting. You can use a brush on or spray primer. Air brush primer is also good, but again as a beginner you don't need to worry about that.

>>82994320
this anon is correct. You could use whatever red spray can is suppoosed to be the official blood angels red and it would be just fine, just remember that you're paying for the GW brand name when you buy it.
>>
>>82994362
yeah either use the red spray paint you want to start with, or prime it another color with a spray can and then paint it red.

Sure! It's not a particularly complicated scheme. 2 rounds of airbrushing, an ink wash, drybrushing, then detail work.

>>82994381
Not always, but in this case yes. Sometimes you will prime a model in a color other than the base coat color for a number of reasons that you don't need to overwhelm yourself with if you're brand new.
>>
>>82994381
>Doesn’t base coat count as priming
Base coating is the first color you use.
Priming is what you paint to get the rest of your paints to stick.

Prime = first thing you put onto bare plastic. Spraypaint (any) or brush on primer will say “primer” on the bottle. Fuck GW for their fucking scam video telling people to use black acrylic paint and fuck people who repeat that bullshit

Basecoat= First color that you intend the model to be. If you primed black/white/grey and want the model to be red, then your first brushed on red is the basecoat. If you primed red, then your primer layer is also your basecoat.

Undercoat= Intentionally painting a different color than your intended color for a certain reason. Most simple is paint an area black before going back and painting raised bits metallic. Undercoating is common for difficult colors like white and yellow.
>>
>>82994341
>Or just the cork doesn't look right for sandstone.
this. Sandstone should be - or at least we expect it to look - smoother cause it's soft. This more looks like concrete. I do like the bases though. When you do the next batch try using DAS air drying clay or cast some sheets of plaster for sandstone. They'll have a finer texture and you can sand/cut/break/machine them into any shape you need.

I was asking about this last night but just want to see your guys opinions once more. I primed some CSM with a black Krylon spray a couple of days ago and it dried just gray. A couple of different options were presented. I had three primed necrons from the start painting kit that I didn't care about. One option was Nuln Oil wash to darken it up. It did, in fact, darken it fairly well, but is still distinctly dark grey. Now I could do it once or twice more, and maybe that would be perfect, but it's definitely more time consuming than just priming over the primer that's already on there. That's the second option. I got Chaos Black spray and tried it on another necron. My fear was that it would lose detail after another primer. Seems like the necron still has detail though, so I'll probably just reprime all my CSM models over the layer of prime that they already have.

P cool. I was thinking for rockmen and maybe cracking ice and stuff too.

>>82995599
Acrylic modelling paste is basically a putty you can add acrylic based pigmentation to, it dries hard enough to drill and sand. I'm sure there's someone out there for who a paint that is basically a sculpting medium is actually the ideal medium. But that man is not me, I have a cupboard full of mediums but I barely actually use acrylic paint except on minis.
>>
>>82995604
A friend of mine said the same thing. The more I looked at it the more I disliked it. Just started stripping. Fuck.
>>
>>82995774
You could probably tone it down with washes and drybrushes, but eh who knows.
>>
I sprayed some VMA paint through my airbrush and it has dried like crackle paint.

>>82986710
Bright colors, at least accents, for sure. But maybe with the undersuits a navy blue or black, whichever you can paint more comfortably. Like wetsuits or something. Honestly I can see a lot of the official GSC cult schemes working as ocean world themes. I think selling it is gonna depend more on your basing, and whether you do any kookie effects to the models, like adding strands of seaweed, barnacles or painting warbly light through water reflections. Also heavy verdigris on some metallics.

>>82993032
If you're using washes at all it won't matter. It'll only be real noticeable if you have primer in spots right next to spots painted with the normal pot without any other paint anywhere on the area, and even then from tabletop point of view it'll be hard to see.

yo that's totally salvageable, it's just terrain dawg. Just sponge on some thicc blotches of dark, warm brown and maybe some reddish tan, then give it a wash.
>>
>>82995699
not my pic, but the guy just put some crackle paint onto his model. Use a wash or some pigments to pick out the cracks afterwards.
>>
>>82995937
Not him, but also going for a wet kinda industrial look. Do you think a typical industrial base with plenty of water effect on it would look good?
>>
>>82996045
I've seen some good work done with concrete terrain where the parts near the bottom look really wet, like all dark and saturated with water. Metal surfaces are a bit trickier, and if you just have it look glossy it doesn't really come across as wet.

Finally someone said it. Some guy did a painting demo at my store and insisted on buying a quart of skim milk to play with on your palette. This was 2003. I can only hope he's dead now.

Photo has some glare but the mini is stellar, very good dark metal. Did you ise a blue wash? The face is way beyond what I can do so I can just say “very good job”.

The airbrush booth is not necessary, but its useful to protect your apartment furniture.

Wearing a mask and having a ventilated room is enough for your health, but the paint particles will settle everywhere, even if you protect your workspace with cardboard or spray inside an cardboard box entirely. The "fog" will reach places, you won't imagine.. for example, i usually spray inside a makeshift booth made from cardboard box, but there is still visible light grey primer spots on my table, showing perfectly where the cardbord was covering it, and where it wasnt.

The shape of the highlight on the forehead is weird and you didn't fully cover the mistakes underneath the eyes. Eyes could be better but that's more than good enough for rank and file.

The gunmetal is just stormhost silver with two coats of Nuln oil. Bronze is sycorax with one coat of agrax, maybe you'd need two if it's very fresh and flowy, and highlighted back up with sycorax. Leather is camo/foundation rotbraun, edge highlighted with rust brown, and afterwards washed with druchii violet.
>>
>>82996874
Lmao, stop shilling your garbage proontniggers. They have absolutely crappy "designs" worthy only of the bin.

Thanks, the nuln oil thing shows that properly applied techniques do not need to be fancy. I eish you good luck with your IW!
>>
>>82990531
I suspect you've applied white paint and because the coverage wasn't good immediately applied more. You should apply a first layer, let it dry and then apply a second and repeat until you have a solid color. It's normal for the first couple layers to look bad and translucent, especially with weak colors like white, flesh or yellow.

Hand sanitizer often contains isopropyl alcohol. It strips acrylic paints very efficiently.

Thanks bros. I just bought the spray directly from GW because it was cheaper direct then the other websites online. $20 on GW vs $20-$30 other sites. Weird.
>>
>>82997385
A very bad copy with screwed up small proportions and detail quality. I'll pass. If you're too stingy, get a good recast, that will give you resin that doesn't fall apart at a blow of the wind as a bonus.
>>
Where do you guys like to get your bits? I want to get a bunch of MK7 Space Marine heads for my Primaris, I like how the old heads look on them.

They're not "old", they're real SM ones. Don't buy, build or support primanlet garbage, you can do better than that.

Ebay?

Nah.

Also ABS-like UV resin is a hell of a lot less brittle than some of the Chinacast shit I've ordered.

40KG said spray paints from Citadel were bad and completely different colors from the pots.

they are slightly different to the pot colour, but it's not that big a deal, you're going to base coat anyway.

The angles are too sharp, the trim too thick and crude, and the rivets too big. Other stuff like the belt buckle and the holster are too undetailed. Chest cables suffer from that as well. Your knockoffs made by indie video game "modellers" simply can't compete with Darren Latham's sculpts.

What brush do you use for fine details? I've found that expensive tiny brushes deteriorate extremely quickly no matter how careful I am.
>>
>>82997991
Who do you play with, proxytards running bottle cork armies?
>>
>>82998263
Very small brushes. The number depends on the manufacturer, they vary wildly.
>>
>>82998296
I have one that exclusively use for faces. I clean it with soap after painting sessions, never get paint in the ferrule and never use it for washes or metallics. Despite this the bristles are splitting and it's increasingly difficult to get any sort of point.
>>
>>82998263
a sable brush that's about as big as my normal basecoating brush, you don't want one that's small but rather, one with a very very sharp point.
>>
>>82998380
How do you keep it in good shape? Reading some guides online it sounds like you can ruin an expensive brush by looking at it the wrong way.
>>
>>82998380
While the tip is the most important factor, a smaller brush is more forgiving since you can't make a thick mark even if you apply too much pressure.
>>82998401
You can't prevent a brush from losing its tip, it will happen eventually. Don't overload the brush, clean it regularly while painting and don't poke the tip into anything. Keeping the brush for painting details only obviously prolongs its life.
>>
>>82998401
Don't use sable. Don't use any natural bristles at all. Small round synthetics are a thousand times better and hardier.
>>
Migrate.

Synthetics will bend and start pointing every which but sable only loses its tip and you can still paint fairly accurately with an old sable brush. I switched from synthetics to sable because it's just not cost effective to keep replacing synthetics
>>
>>82998597
Means you have bad synthetics. I switched the other way specifically because sable deteriorated and died really badly.
>>
>>82998636
What synthetics do you use then?

Local brands, I don't think they ship abroad.
