Guys

For faces I've been using cadian flesh tone and then agrax earthshade, followed by a touch up of cadian fleshtone again.


What is a better choice? Is there a better option for a flesh color? What base should I use?

Don't worry.
I'm sure when the get around to MILITARUM TEMPESTUS OCTANUS and do new models for the Guard that will also tower over your Templars, because the fundamental reason behind Primaris Marines is mostly just the same scale bloat that's basically been going on for years.

>>
>>53333365
If you want a basic, good black, just basecoat with black, skip any washes, and then edge highlight with a mid/dark grey. Then go in with a light grey and pick out some sharp corners to add more pop.

If you want to get a little fancier, mix black with some dark grey and use that as your basecoat, and wash with black before doing the rest. Gives a slightly deeper black.

Other parts are standard painting fare, but I imagine you'll be doing a lot of black. Good luck!

Thanks. My main army is Black Templars, so I have some experience with painting black, but having advice always helps.

Those cheap little lightboxes you see on amazon and ebay aren't so bad. They're only plastic folding little jobbies but they get the job done well enough. The lights built into them are surprisingly strong - even with the black background they almost wash out my photos!

I hope you mean dish soap and nothing heavy duty. I left resin in diluted degreaser for four days a couple weeks ago, and it came out with a "sweaty" layer of some sort of byproduct that won't wash off.

why tho? Also not him, but i sue just normal soap you would use to wash hands and it works perfectly.

Night Lords

It's just normal dish soap. Nothing super crazy. I just have a lot of bits. It's at least 2 full sets of torsos/heads/shoulders, plus recast versions of the old metal ones, plus their legion weapons, plus special weapons, ect. Admittedly, part of the problem is that I don't know what sort of lost in looking at yet.

I'd recommend a thin undercoat of black or a dark red over the primer, then a base coat of Bloody Red, then another thin glaze of dark red to fill in the shadows and panel lines. Finish it off by mixing Bloody Red with a bright yellow to highlight the edges of the armor panels. Use gunmetal for weapons and mechanical parts, and black highlighted with grey for secondary color panels.

If you'd rather step away from the studio scheme, look up "Soviet armor" and pick some earthy greens to fit.
>>
>>53335878
It was secondhand, and the primer was really thick in the crevices. I figured a longer soak would loosen that and weaken the glue at the same time.

Turns out degreaser also heavily oxidizes the surface of bare white metal in about 36 hours, though I still can't tell if the discoloration is accompanied by any structural effects.

I like the piss filter you're using. Nice, healthy yellow.

Is there any company that makes a yellow that coats worth a damn? I bought an Army Painter box set and none of the yellows are worth shit. All the other colors - especially the metallics - are awesome, but the yellows may as well be glazes.

>>53336058
Yellows are always quite translucent, same goes for many reds, it's just how those pigments are, so what you're looking for is an initial coat of a matte, super high pigment yellow, followed by layers of the yellow you want.

As for which colours are suited for that, the Vallejo Game Color Heavy paints should be good as a base (there is no Heavy Yellow, but Gold Brown may be suitable), I haven't used the "new" GW Base paints enough to have an idea how good they are at their job, but their "old" Foundation range was great for it as well.
>>
>>53336179

Something like this?

>>
>>53336206
exactly that, yes.
That Ochre will give you a nice base for your far more translucent normal yellows to go over.

I hope, your are not leaving the grime streaks this way... Anyway, weathering should be done with enamel and pigments.

For your red, paint a panel of 1 shoulder or knee or paint a stripe on the helmet.

I tried using some Tamiya weathering pigments on a destroid model a few years ago for the first time, and combined with some rust-painting techniques I learned from Camospecs, was pretty happy with the end result.

They also work decently well on a smaller 6mm scale, too.

Didn't have one spare and I tried carving a segmented line like the thigh armour but it came out wonky. I'm fucking terribad at straight lines in general, can't eyeball worth shit. It's a lot less sportsbra-like now though and I'm happy enough with it. I'll put some transfers when I'm done to break it up.

problem #1 "sup bro u mirin?" chest

problem #2 cloak looks okay except for the torn parts, you coulda just cut some green stuff off with scissors to make it look better

problem #3 cloak doesn't have any means of being attached to the armor


you could have made it look a lot better by cutting off some bits like the tau symbol and inserting into the green stuff

also for straight lines and segmented bits, just place em in strips

Chest cannot be made smaller, I will add details to it via transfers eventually.

The torn parts I took a tip from Duncan to stipple agrax to represent dirt. Did it not come out well? The cloak itself is a banner from somewhere, had a WHF beastman head on it.

I know, I fucked up on the clasps but they wouldn't stick on. i originally was going to do it like a poncho but I'll try painting it in a way that makes it look attached.

After cleaning out my garage and realising I have a hoarding problem with hobby stuff, I managed to find an entire plastic tub of space marine sprues, half painted marines from a job lot I bought while drunk ebaying years ago and four rhino boxes circa 2000. Considering painting up a ultra smurfs army but unsure whether I should do them the classic yellow and blue or the modern gold and dark blue scheme.

I also found an entire army of necrons from third edition that are horribly painted as well as some unopened metal spider blister packs. Is a Necron army even relevant in 2017? I might strip them with Simple Green and paint them up if so.

I started painting last week but have only really had the opportunity to actually get to work on minis last Saturday and today. This Silver Knight is probably the best one I've made thus far (only done 5 minis so far though) and I'm pretty proud of it. You can't see it in this photo very well but the shield really stands out compared to the somewhat grimier armor and the little indents on the shield are dabbed with a gold to make them pop out more. The cape was also my first attempt at drybrushing (previously I had just done layers + shading) and I think it turned out pretty well.

I need quality brushes that won't break the bank.

Company suggestions?
>>
>>53346470
GW brushes Just Werk for me. Base brush, layer brush, and detail brush is what? ~$20? I've used brushes from Reaper and Royal, and those seem about the same. Really I suspect it's hard to fuck up a paintbrush, although I do want to try Kolinski sable to see if I'm missing out on anything.

Also get pic related, a lot of people don't seem to use brush soap but this stuff is great. I used to go through a GW detail brush in a few months but with this your brush is restored to brand new condition. I use it when I've had a lot of paint built up on the brush to where it's starting to dry, and after I'm done painting. It takes a bit of trial and error to get it working right and allegedly it can restore ruined brushes but I've not been able to revive my destroyed brushes. But it keeps your good brushes good.

Guess I'll go with the gray/blue. I might be able to pull off a darker brown but I only have brown wash to make it darker and that would probably go down poorly, plus as >>53346448 says it works with the texture on the base better now that I think about it. The wash on that is even blue so it has a slight blue tint (it's the GW astrogranite scheme, astrogranite texture/drakenoff shade wash/longbeard gray drybrush)

You got matte, satin, and gloss varnishes. Generally speaking, it's best to gloss/satin coat your model once you're done, and then matte it down, since gloss/satin or stronger and will preserve your colors better.

Testing my new Army Painter paints by whipping up some Bad Moonz. Go down smooth, yellow took 4+ layers to get a smooth coat but that's to be expected. This is my first time actually painting any model in years, as I've been getting by on using washes/glazes.

My friend is brand new to painting. I'm really proud of him because he started out like two months ago doing entirely novice but reasonable job on his 50 pink horrors, but this is his latest work.

Yes, the miniatures start off as unpainted grey-ish resin, so even though it looks pretty similar to an unpainted metal mini, it's actually been primed, layered, shaded, and then highlighted a little with drybrushing.

Good coverage (except yellow and red, but that's to be expected). Metallics are great, don't look like glitter paint.

They do tend to separate bad, so you need to jerk them o-- I mean, shake the paints for 30 seconds to two minutes to get the medium and pigment back together again.

So I'm pretty new to 40k (or at least, to doing the actual wargame of 40k, I've been a universe-junky for long long time). I don't really have any background in modeling so I'm starting from the ground up. I'm looking for basic modeling tool kit and brushes. I'm clever enough to know that anything GW sells in this arena will be overpriced so I'm looking for suggestions. "Tis a poor workman who blames his tools" and so forth, but I'd just as soon not get stuck with shitty tools either. Not excessively over-priced would be a plus, too.

Is this just one layer of wash? What colours did you use? It looks quite dark, I'd say you're maybe putting it on a bit thick and/or are using colours that are just too dark. Otherwise desu it doesn't look that bad, mine look really messy after the first wash, it takes all the details to actually make them look good.

I started with Emperors children, but noted I didn't have any Blue other than Drakenhof Nightshade, so I tried using Druchii violet and Lahmian medium, and once applied, I added some Seraphim sepia. Then the Drakenhof "shading" and the Casandora yellow for the bruising.

yeah, that's why I really wish I hadn't been so dumb as to try it out on a mini which I really liked. I guess I shouldn't paint

How on earth do you fill in tiny carvings on stuff?
I've tried using liquid greenstuff to get rid of the smurfs logo on this guy's Croxius and I feel I'm risking the definition of the skull in general to try to do so.

Anybody got a proper guide for this stuff?

>>53352170
you use liquid or regular greenstuff, in a very small amount, and then once its dry, you file it down and smoothen it.

>>
>>53352109
Nah I think with good details it will look fine. I've not used druchii violet but looking at pictures it, like most citadel washes, is extremely dark when it pools. Their glaze range stays quite light and bright when it pools, which is why I think it works well for this. It looks like you've just let it pool a bit too much, that's all, if while it's still wet you go back in and siphon some of the wash out from the pooled area it will look better because you'll get much more of he base coat coming through.

For this guy he will probably still look good with the details done and if you're up for it some glazed highlights to bring back the pinkness.

I thank you for the encouragement, but I don't think I could pull this off even with the right glazes - only one I have is Bloodletter, but then I didn't have the blue vallejo paint, so that attempt went out the window - but I might give it another try when I have GB.
I still think I fucked over the model too much for it to look good, since it just looks like an old piece of gum shaped into plastic.

The main colour is Xeres Purple.

I prime, basecoat the cloth parts in Mechanicus Standard Grey then I basecoat the armour in The Fang and fix up any little mistakes. Then I wash in Nuln Oil and layer on Russ Grey onto the armoured parts, finishing with edge highlight of Fenrisian Grey and painting little details like lenses etc. I did 2 fire warriors and they turned out really nicely, dunno why the rest are giving me so much trouble.
>>
>>53355006

I suggest you do some batch painting. For example, base all the cloth parts on your FWs, then all the armour parts. Wash all the models, then let dry. Highlight cloth parts, then highlight armor parts. Edge highlight everything, then add details.

'Ere's da fing, boss: goin' da straight route at GW is gonna cost ya.

See this card? You need to get it filled out with visits and purchases at GW just to *qualify* to buy the new chaplain, and *then* you still have to pay for said chaplain ($25US, I imagine). How do you get your card filled out? Well, you get one skull for coming to an event, and one skull for each $20 of purchases you make ... da lad at the till even said something about having an approved post on the store's Facebook page - although I don't know how often they'll be willing to hand *that* one out.

It probably would to be honest. Those are the details too much indeed. Not sure you can not use them though.
>>
>>53356587
Indeed. The amount of models of that Chaplain sold like this must be super small. Every person that I know who got it got it at the opening, like the Termie Captain, not through their long, super expensive and bullshit system.
