Hello fellow fa/tg/uys!

Noob artists unite in this thread (or not) to exchange painting of their models. The rest of us rip them to hell.


>> No.19505403

Drill the barrels, finish the bases, and that'll do quite nicely.

>> No.19505480

hey thanks man, im still learning... What do you drill the bases with generally, some sort of hobby tool in particular or improvise?

>> No.19505482

Those look fantastic.

>> No.19505545

What colors did you use for the leather and straps? Base and shade that is.

>> No.19505558

I drill the barrels, not the bases. And as for what to use there, just grab one of those handheld hobby drills. A small electrical hobby drill (such as a dremel) will also work, but will be relatively unwieldy, and if the rpm can't be set to low enough then you'll have issues with the plastic melting around the drill and making a hole much larger than intended.

>> No.19505580


i base coat the model skull white spray, then i leave the straps white (for ease of painting, its boyz were talking about here) and then i coat with devlan mud...

yeah barrels i meant, and thanks!

work in progress looted tank!

feel free to comment on my DA if you liked it :)

>> No.19505594

Red armour probably wasn't the best choice there for the marine, as it gets rather too much when you add the blood, but otherwise no real complaints. I'd recommend painting the entire base (after sanding), then adding a wash (such as the dip you appear to have used) and/or drybrushing to bring out the texture (might be best to do the base drybrushing first, then paint the mini, dip it all, finally re-paint the rim). And be more careful when painting the rim.

You will most likely find that looted wagons and choppa boys are very 'meh'. Shootas and battlewagons tend to be wherw it's at.

Your work looks good for starters, though. You might want to find your way to the-waaagh forums for help, inspiration, and everything ork related.

I veru much like the texture you've attained on this model. Consider to leave some detailwork out (example gun flames) to make them look more "clean" and military esque.

Thats just my oppinion though

Posted this before, but I need some advice
I think I fucked up with the blue and made it too natural (and also you can't even tell theres a darker layer in the recesses) Should I just start it over with black base and build up to a darkish grey?

Tamiya Clear works best when you mix some brown/black into it as well. Clear on it's own is too... transparent? Bright?

There was a good tutorial for blood that used it, and I had saved on my old computer.. but I can't seem to find it again

>> No.19505841

Just give the blue a black wash, then mix the darkest blue you used with some grey for a nice grey blue and layer that up to a lighter grey blue. you want like 75% grey to 25% blue, you just want to give it a blue tint. that should give you a much more realistic color

Some of my older stuff here. I'm in the process of working on a few Menoth Bastions and doing a bit of touch-up on E. Kreoss.

Anyone know some good cheap primer I can buy in the UK?

I have been using the vallejo airbrushable stuff, but it doesn't really "stick" to the model in the same way GW primer did, so masking tape pulls it off.

>> No.19505954

this is my struggle with White Scars

>> No.19505975

Sandable primer like krylon or any type of extremely cheap Car sandable primer will work
I use dupli-color and it works fucking great. The only down side is you have to shake the fuck out of the can to use it, but it only costs me about $5 American to buy the shit.

One of the left is primed with the black and the right side is the white. It cover damn good Personally I like the white for infantry and the black for vehicles.

Picture quality sucks though as I only have a camera phone

looks like you got the eyes right for the first one, but the next two you didn't
the trick to eyes is doing the color, and then cleaning it with the skin tone (like painting the eye lids so the eye is eye shaped instead of a blob)

I'm going to say this now: Metallic paints are hard to do as a base color. You should either layer up with more silver paints, or perhaps drybrush it on a black base coat.
Have you tried the new white base coat GW made? Sure it's pricey, but I hear great things about their new white, yellow, and silver base paints.

get a better picture
folding a piece of paper under and behind it will give a nice photo studio for taking pictures, and won't get that weird colored glow from having other objects bouncing light onto it
also get a lamp for light( I'm missing that so I had to use natural light which is alright I guess)

>> No.19507408

one thing to add; "incandescent' bulbs should be avoided, if you can

you want "white" light, rather than "yellow" light.

Tip for people trying to paint eyeballs:


Try just putting a small darker than the rest of the flesh tone around it line across the eye instead. Because big googly eyes look somewhat silly, it's difficult to get them to look right, and at tabletop viewing distances you should not/won't really be able to see them anyway.

Tip for things with big eyes like horses: paint them dark, probably just straight black unless you're doing something alien looking and want to emphasize that, and just put a tiny dot of white on it for the shinyness.

>> No.19508248

Alright, so I've been off of work for two weeks. And I've been making a shit-ton of terrain. Please let me know what you think, and improvements that can be made.

This is series of village houses I'm working on. They're all WIP, but mostly done, as you can see they need doors and finishing touches.

how did you do the flooring? and do you know of a way to cut it for a circular base for basing?

But keep on dude, I fucking love terrain building (architect fag here) but since the LGS I play at has a ton of stuff there's no need to make more

A tree shot. These are made from dowels, furnace filters, spray glue, paint, and green flocking..

>> No.19508634

Here's a solo tree. The base is a nice 2x2. You'll see in the next how they stand.

As for the flooring, it's pretty simple, coffee stirrer sticks. They are the right thickness, two togther are just about inch. They were painted all black then drybrushed brown.

You could easy cut for a wooden base by tracing your outline and then cutting to scale.

I found my trees were very top heavy and tended to fall over with the slightest breeze, so I weighed them down with some heavy, but very narrow washers.

Those are 28mm scale. They were purchased on the cheap from Reaper Mini's who are awesome


>> No.19509196

I know its metal, but you probably should have cut the base off to make it more statue like. So instead of looking like a mini on a bottlecap, it looks like a statue on a pedestal

>> No.19509332

Nah, it's plastic. But I like having them be able to move like Golems or living statues. and that requires a little more solid base.

>> No.19509409

Tried that (without the black wash, sadly, because I don't have one)
I think its passable, but I should have made it more grey
Though I still have the hammer head to work on, so hopefully I can get that one right
