Yes, but when you look at Golden Daemon winners or the "What's New Today?" section on GW's site (when it's featuring paintjobs from their inbox rather than hyping an upcoming release), and then your own, you need a thread like this to feel better about yourself.

Although sometimes GW features some horrendous bullshit in their "What's New Today?" section.

I know why they've posted that. It's a very achievable example of highlights and moving away from metallic paints in favor of just being a good at highlights.

In a slightly unrelated topic... Anyone have one of these? I'm thinking of using it as an Airbrush substitute until I save up for a real one. Can it be used on minis effectively? I've only seen people use it on vehicles, are they just idiots? Anyone know if the spray size is adjustable? I'm planning on using it on Spacemarines to get easy highlights, and on their Shoulder pads. How achievable is this?

>> No.16036865


I've seen some pretty good tutorials on the GW site which seem to suggest you can get an army getting painted quite quickly by undercoating with a spray can and then base coating with a spray gun.

Example here:

Those Salamanders are Tabletop quality. Maybe not 8$ a model quality, but they're by no means bad. Keep on being special, /tg/.

Biggest problem with them is the face, honestly. The rest isn't terrible, and the freehand work on the Terminator is of a high standard.

>> No.16037023

That's really just because they tried too hard on the face. A simple flesh-tone, with an ogryn wash would be enough. There wouldn't be fine detail like eyes, but it'd be more than adequate for tabletop quality.

Some of the best armies I've seen just had flesh-tone and wash for the faces of all but their HQs and sergeants.

>> No.16037046


That's pretty much what the tutorials I've read suggest as well, since face details are pretty much indistinguishable past an inch - it's only if you're intending to paint competitively that the face needs a huge amount of attention, since even with more important models you only need to add a few more details to make them stand out.
