Finally had everything I needed to dip a toe in airbrushing, and what better way to learn than priming? I used #vallejo primer, thinned with their thinner for black. Learned a bunch about technique and maintenance. Used #thearmypainter fanatic Matt White for the zenithal. It is so thick. Used thinner with it 50/50. Also learned you can’t mix the fanatic paint in the airbrush cup. Looking forward to trying speedpaint with the airbrush #miniaturepainting

@PhillGreen silicone mixing cups are good for pre mixing paints for your airbrush. Dried paint peels right off. Something like this makes pouring into the brush easy. https://a.co/d/d4by9aK

The local game shop finally has all the old Army Painter paints on clearance ahead of getting the new range in so I got myself a handful. I know some people consider them low-quality and I've had those bad experiences too, but I believe in "get good at using what you've got" for budget reasons (and also I'm not aspiring to a level that justifies spending on "only the best").

@tiikerikani absolutely not bad quality. Just really prone to separating and in need of a mega shake (and probably a glass bead or two)

If you've got one of those vibrating shakers it's much less work.

Painted Susan Sto Helit (Death's granddaughter in Discworld) this morning.

Three different types of black (grey cloak, purple skirt and corset and sharp highlights on the boots) with three highlight layers. Two or three highlights on the skin. And two highlights on the white hair. The black hair, metal and wood only got one highlight.

Now to work out how to do nice cobble stones!

Bass player #Eddie, looks like #IronMaiden Steve Harris beginning to perform his typical machine gun pose. Trickiest part perhaps was to pick the right colors for Steve’s West Ham United wrist bands and bass guitar strap :)

What’s next? Maybe Trooper Eddie…

Khorne Daemon Allies

Taking a break from the Titan (not really, the epoxy is just drying) to paint something a little different. So I went ahead and painted up a couple Khorne Daemons to be allies, starting with two characters. These were fun to do and were relatively quick to paint. I'm especially proud of the Skullmaster's sword.

Beloved people. Any of you using Vallejo Xpress colours? If so, do you know how much do they take to fully dry?

I just completed some minis, and around an hour later decided to varnish them and the paint was stripping in some spots. Never happened to me that with normal paints and with that very same varnish, so I assume it has to do with the Xpress colours. 😢

Any experience like that?

roofuskit,
@roofuskit@mstdn.social avatar

@lautmaler that's not my experience with them, but I never brush on varnish. I'm assuming that's how you applied it? Also I've seen Warhipster on YouTube test their durability and he didn't have any issues either.

Now that I’m more than halfway through my Ogre Battle Box, I’m pushing to finish it off.

Although there’s a box somewhere in storage that has the infantry and light GEVs, plus hopefully the turret to my Fencer.

Took a break from 40K to paint a few other minis.

Snowy day stuck inside. These paint up pretty fast.

Playing with Army Painter Speed Paints 2.0

I can see how easy it’ll be to paint up tiny tanks fast. I’ll need to pick up more colors.

pivotal,

This secret christmas gift for my wife is almost finished, so here is a sneaky WIP!

Trying to decide if I'm brave enough to attempt tattoos on Edward's skin, and if the leather is too blue, and if the skin is too blotchy, and on and on 😅

Let me know what you think! I feel it's pretty close!

Put some #ArmyPainter things on my Christmas list so I can attempt to paint my #FinalGirl Series 1 #miniatures

Anyone have any tips on using washes? For the #minis I've painted previously, I primed in black, then dry brushed grey and then white. Then used just speed paints.

On these I think I want to prime with a light beige, then drybrush white, then use speeds. But a lot of people recommending washes after for deeper shadows. Any thoughts?

#MiniaturePainting #BoardGames #TableTop

coyotebd,

@boardgamebreakdown speed paints act like a wash, and a lot of washing techniques assume you are going to re-apply your basecoat after, which isn't really possible with speedpaints.

You could try just applying the washes to the shadows, or try oil or enamel washes.

Although at that stage I wonder if your spending more time auto-painting to make things fast than it would take just to paint highlights and shadows nornally.

boardgamebreakdown,
@boardgamebreakdown@mas.to avatar

@coyotebd Thanks for the advice. Maybe I'm confusing advice I've seen about washes being used over regular paints and not speed paints. I like the idea of the speed paints bc I don't feel I'm good at detailing/highlighting

Here are a few of the first mins I painted. Any feedback?

He is finally done!

I tried a bit of OSL although to my eyes does not work too well. I also timidly added a bit of weathering. I have this tendency of making my minis "too clean". 😅

War Dog Executioner Progress

Had the chance to sit down today to get some progress done on the War Dogs... and 2 hours later I am not sure where the time went but hey, the Executioner is fully assembled and all the base coats are down so that's good right?

@setsneedtofeed
That's where it starts! After applying crackle paste it comes out looking more like Chaos corruption breaking through the ground. I'll take another picture after I apply the effect.
