I didn't see one, so I'm starting a new painted minis thread. Post what you're painting/converting or stuff you've recently done. To make it interesting, you must comment on one of the previous posts to post something new.

To start things up, I have purple 'crons. I was going for a 90's decepticon look, and think it worked for the lord and deathmark, but the warrior just looks like he's wearing football shorts and shoulder pads. Tried highlighting areas in green where the glowy bits would reflect. Not sure how well it worked. I'm still deciding whether or not to add highlights to the purple or leave it flat to look more like a bright plastic toy.

>> No.18974304

Some highlighting on the purple wouldn't look bad to me. Anyway, I love your color scheme, and the green glow is very nice for tabletop quality. Just don't post it on /v/. Ever.

I'm not sure where to put this but I don't think it deserves a new thread so I'm putting it here.

I just decided to start painting some Tau and while I was building the first units I realized that I'm missing a torso and a little antenna.

I told my friend about this and he said I could call GW and tell them and they'd send me a brand new box. I want to know if anyone has done this before? He said he did it with a Land Raider. Will they do it with infantry? Could I potentially try to get a completely different unit out of it?

>> No.18980084

>>18980000
GW usually has an excellent customer service policy. however, if you are missing a torso and an antenna but still have the rest of the sprue it is unlikely they will send you a new box.

if you get ripped off and are missing a sprue, then contact them, usually they will send you a new box of whatever was "damaged or defective".
Just don't be a dick and abuse it potentially ruining the one thing that won't make me raise a skeptical eye to GW/.

>> No.18983565

>>18983507

It is indeed the somewhat soft bendy plastic. If you look at his axe hilt, that isnt the camera angle, it is bent like that. These are caesar miniatures which atleast from the batch of 4 boxes I got have pretty damn nice detail without much bending and smooth clean surfaces.

I use some 220 grit small files for removing seamlines, which actually aren't that bad at all which I was impressed by, especially considering how cheap they are (10 bucks for 35 minis.) I then toss them into a cheap sonic cleaner I got off amazon with some dish soap to remove left over dust and mold grease. I then use acrylic gesso as my primer, which is the grey you see in the picture. The gesso is chalk mixed with glue and pigment so it makes the mini into a sort of plaster statue. I haven't had any issue what so ever with paint flaking but I'm not bending parts or anything, but since their small and sturdy that shouldn't be an issue if your careful.

I must say though, you need some small ass brushes, even my 20/0's are too big for some of the small details, though I did his belt in one stroke using a 20/0 or a 10/0. I'll probably cut some of small liner brushes thinner so i can work around small places easily.

Pic related is some medieval style necrons I'm messing with from the Ceaser Undead 1/72's. Need to decide on an armor/weapon paint scheme. I want them to be more glowly green, and need to get the weapons to contrast the skelly metal. Might go with this copper, I'm liking it.

How is grey stuff compared to the yellow/brown mix one? I use mine for bases, and when I use what is left probably I'll get some grey stuff at mi LGS to try.


This is one of the last miniatures I've painted. Also, the second time I painted a horse mounted miniature.

I don't know if it's just a personal preference thing for Discs, but I did mine much darker, and I went for a dark blue/purple flame scheme, trying give a more 'Demonic Fire' sorta thing going.
The yellow just looks too bright to me. It's well painted and blended, no arguement here, it's the colour choice I don't like.

What colours are you using on the Lord? It helps to be able to compare the disc with the Lord who's riding it

I touched up the fire, I think I'm going to leave it like this until the lord is painted and I can see the final appearance of the model.

>>18991445
At first I was going for a blue flame, but I thought that with the blue clothes from the lord it would be too blue, so I opted for a traditional fire. The lord will be painted somewhat like the one from GW's site, but with this scheme of fire instead of the inverse fire of them.

The problem is that the whole thin is too dark. It looks petty good and your process is great. But flame would be lighter in value even in the darkest areas than anything else on the disc. As it is, they are about the same, and there are parts of the flame that are darker than the brass.

You don't need to get into glow effects and source lighting nonsense but just make your lightest light (the inside offwhite in the flames) a little more prominent and maybe even whiter. Then you don't need the tips to be as dark to get the same overall effect, so you can lighten those a lot as well.

If it were me, I would make a wash with matte medium (or water if you don't have any). I'd use an off-white (like Menoth White Highlight from P3 or a warm bone color), add some white to that, and wash the whole base of the flame sloppily, getting it on the disc where they meet.

Let it dry then put a VERY thin glaze of orange over that, letting it stain it slightly orange. Overlap this onto a little big greater area than the first wash.

Your mind will explode when you see how much more like fire this looks and how easy it is. Sometimes simpler really is more powerful and effective. DO NOT FEAR TO USE THE BIGGEST GUN. It will succeed like hours of layering will not.

FOR METAL VS. SEALANT: paint normally, seal/varnish normally. Then do final layer of edge highlights afterward. This not only protects the figure while keeping a luster, it's more like real metal, which tends to be more matte in the shadows or body then glint on the highest points where the metal is sharper edged and more polished.

He's right, you can grab a pin vise and mini bit set off amazon for like 10 bucks and with it you can easily drill out gun barrels and tuuuubes to add a good amount of realism. Also you can get some wire (around 18 gauge is good) and with it and the pin vise pin parts together so they hold and fit better or to bases and shit.

Its a useful little tool.

>> No.19003321

>>19003225

Should have commented a bit more about the pic. Not only are the lascannon barrels drilled out, but the little smoke screen triple tubes, they are pinned. If you look closely next to the front two smoke stacks theres a little hole on each side, so I can move the smoke stacks between center alingment and front, not to mention point them in whatever direction. The spotlight on the back here is also pinned for turning or removal. The doors also open and close with some 28 guage wire that was twisted twice to be 4-ply allowing it to bend open and close without snapping.

This may sound silly, but do you know of any cybernetic/robot type horses?

Thats prety much it. White-> Blue Wash -> White again. The fluff is just prety much dead lizardmen from a destroyed temple city. I wanted something i could paint fast and still look decent on the tabletop. Our game group primaraly plays warmachine and hordes so i didnt want a scheme that would take too long to paint that i wouldnt get my warmachine stuff painted in a timely fashion. If i spent time and did a normal paintscheme for them aloneside my other stuff its likely id only ever get like a unit done a month, and i dont like playing with unpainted models if i can help it.

Try searching videos on youtube, can find all kinds of different methods. Best bet if you have an airbrush is to spray some black over the primer in shadow areas before you do the base coat of color to get some gradiation going.

If you don't have an airbrush then using some black ink wash in recesses and on lower areas to envoke shadows can go a long way as well.

>>19003225

Did both methods on this, though the shaded primer is probably not that noticeable after all the layers over it.

I love the concept of those ghost lizardmen, it's so incredible and they look great. But the yellow hue on their eyes is a bit solid for my personal liking, I think it could just use a little bit of highlighting and a lighter centre.
But that's my opinion.
I've never had a Slaan Mage Priest, I could never get my hands on one. And it has to be my favourite miniature ever. I'm hella jelly.
