I didn't see one on the front page, so lets get a painting general going.
Just finished priming this whole squad with a 2/1 mix of black-paint/water. Gonna start doing the main color of emerald now. Gonna do another 2/1 mix unless y'all tell me otherwise.

Yellow is the hardest colour to paint of all time. I wouldn't reccomend it to a beginner.

One method would be to get some (good) "yellow" spray, spray them and dip them in Army Painter or something. Gives a good shaded effect.

I had the same problem when I was using Vallejo matt varnish, which wasn't really matt at all.

I'm using 'Daler Rowney Soluble Varnish Matt Acrylic' now, after reading about it on the Steve Dean forums.
Just stir it for about 30 seconds and than shake it for a minute before use.
Gives a perfectly matt finish and I never had a single problem with 'frosting' either.

OP here. I've been staring at these two guys sense I finished their main color. I just read GW's "How to Paint A Space Marine" again and I'm considering on trying the drybrush technique to the green and then applying an ink to it. The inks I have are Vallejo's green shade, umber (brown) shade, black shade, and fleshtone shade. Just wondering how I would do the ink and which one I should do (I think it may be obvious green) or if I should do more than a single ink color. Also, should I dry brush first then ink or the otherway?

Here's some Iron Warriors. Painted these when I was about 14 (5 years ago), hence why whilst they're not too shabby they're missing cool newer bitz.

I would apply the wash first which gives shading, and then do the drybrushing for highlighting.

Vallejo washes are stronger pigmented than their GW counterparts in my experience, which is why I usually delude them even more with a bit a water before use.

Just Iron Warriors, back then different legions had a bit more difference between them in rules. They were like the SW/BA/GK of the day in that everyone thought they were overpowered (they were). IW could also could swap two (redundant anyway) Fast Attack slots for Heavy Support ones.

Obliterators were nastier (more weapons) and tougher so you just spammed them, had minimal squads since not just Troops could capture markers, and took a nasty Daemon Prince.

>Black and Red and Blue
Just as a /co/mrade, generally you don't want to have black and red unless your army is from a charred hellworld or a batman book, and black/red/blue can be a bad combination just from the really toyetic feel that blood red and ultramarines blue can give.

If you're dead set on black/red/blue, I would suggest actually using space wolves grey, a really light blue, to give your army more contrast. That way you have one dark color (black) one medium color (blood red) and one light color (space wolves grey) to really make the army pop.

In fact I kind of recommend that to everyone, design your units around three core colors, one dark, one medium, and one light. Skin can count as the light in most cases.

Really, I encourage you all to take a look at how superhero characters are designed, color wise, and take inspiration from either superhero comics, older gundam shows or other works with colorfully designed characters when it comes to picking colors for your army.

Forgot to mention that I don't really see much difference until I used the flash, and even then I don't know if that's what I really want it to do. Makes it look a bit more like a goblin green or something...

I wouldn't be surprised if someone somewhere has. Probably only did it on the trim and details rather than the main colors though.

Hey woad paint marines guy, I remember you from my Super Dungeon Explore minis painting thread. How's it coming? Since the thread is done I laid my trip down in the halls of my venerated ancestors, where it waits in darkness to be needed again....its power is too grave to use lightly.

No I did read that though I still disagree and personally think red black and space wolves grey would look phenomenally worse.

Not to say contrasting colours don't look good. Just that the contrast between red, black and any kind of light blue fits poorly.

Well, I've finally stopped putting painting off and have been dedicating time to it. Got an entire squad primed black and now I'm using two dudes as practice. Finished painting the two's main color of emerald and now I'm working on the ink. Dunno if I like the way it looks though. What do you think?

>> No.17792740

>>17791697

Neither or either, depending. You want to think about what color you're highlighting, how bright you want it to be, and if you want any change in color between the base color and the highlight.

Pure white will be a more obvious, clear highlight that's colder/cooler. Bone or similar will give a softer, less-clean, less-obvious highlight which is also warmer.

A good rule of thumb is to highlight cool colors with white and warm colors with offwhite/bone. And just remember that an offwhite is also yellower usually.

Of course, you can just use premixed lighter colors in a pot, most miniatures paints have those anyway.

Well from what I can see the paint looks nice and smooth and the color looks ok. You need to take the pics under a better light or by a window (preferably on a hazy overcast day or through some white blinds or curtains, not direct light. Obviously you have to take what light there is, but that's the ideal.

When you say you used 2/3 water and paint or whatever, bear in mind you don't want paint to be so thin that it runs or drips freely. Just thin enough to be smooth and not clump or cake on. Just add a drop of water every so often to keep it flowing smoothly (I have to do this constantly b/c my room here is heated with damn space heaters and is dry as fuckall, your mileage may vary).

But hey that's why you do test models, to iron this all out before committing to a ton of figs or anything important or expensive. Hereafter refered to as PROTOTYPES.

Well, would you call the emerald green I'm using a cool color, or a warm color? I think it's cool. I was planning on mixing the whichever white color was suggested with some of the emerald and using that color as a highlight. The mix I was using for the paints was 2/1 paints/water. As for prototypes, that's what I'm doing. just starting with two dudes, not even doing heads, arms, backpacks, etc. on them.

Green can usually go either way, a pure green (like fresh grass) is about half cool blue, half warm yellow. I'd see what other colors will be on there and then decide. If there is a lot of warm brown leather and red hair and flesh colors, go cooler to contrast.

I assume by "colorblind" you mean red/green colorblind. It's shockingly common, some people don't even know they have it until late in life, how that can be possible, I have no idea. Doesn't a stop sign or traffic light cause you to notice something's odd?

SPECIAL BONUS FACT: humans and a few other primates are the only mammals that can see red/blue color differences rather than only blue/yellow differences, or just monochromatic.

Most animals that see at all, see in black and white or just shadows and light. Humans and (IIRC) a few other apes can see red/green. So can some birds.

Butterflies can see all colors including colors WE CAN'T EVEN SEE. Lovecraftian horror colors that we can only imagine, or see if we are on Slaneeshi senso-drugs. They call it the "visible spectrum" but it really is the "pathetic meatbag humans' visible" spectrum. THE MOAR U KNOW.

Well, the colors I'm planning on using are emerald for the main color, bronze for most metals, ruby red for any of the stones and gems that the space wolves have, a (mid)night blue for the woad tattoos, bones/teeth done normally, furs done with more of a focus towards brown, straps and belts and such in a leather brown, skin will be a bronzed fleshtone, and hair will be all over the place with browns, blacks, reds, and maybe the occasional limed blonde.

I'd keep the green a cooler green then for contrast. Highlight with more bluish greens or white, not yellowish greens (like snot green for instance, that would be bad).

Excuse me...but why're you painting in your bathroom? And I'm using Vallejo colors for painting these guys, maybe you know those colors better. And lemme give you a list of all the colors I have right now, maybe I can use one of them. Dead White, Bonewhite, Night Blue, Emerald, Chainmail Silver, Black, Scorpion Green, Goblin Green, Bronze Fleshtone, Sombre (Shadow) Grey, Leather Brown, Black ink, Green ink, Brown ink, Fleshtone ink, and Ruby red by Coat D'arms. Planning on going to my LGS to pick up Bronze and maybe a few other paints if you recommend any.
