Looked for one but couldn't find one, so here it is. Painting and conversions, show my what your currently working on, because the common man needs to show off his bits just as much as the master painters.

I need to build a 5-man Thousand Sons biker squad so i'm hitting the concept art. I need feedback on my idea.

5 ornate flying discs (scratchbuilt discs of tzeentch basically) outlined with runes. The two "bikers" that have the basic TL-bolter have the foremost sigil be painted silver. The 2 special weapon "bikers" will have a different sigil painted in a mix of bright red/blue (to signify flamer/melta and plasma colours) while the champion gets a slightly more ornate disc with a unique sigil. This is to be able to know which is which by looks, while the available army list will show what armament they have as counts-as.

I've messed with pigment powders and such before, although I'm clean out right now, and stuck with age-old GW paints. My usual MO for flesh involves starting with a brown and working my way up from there, but it just doesn't look right on zombies - much too, you know, healthy looking.

Looks alright. The tongue and the red field sort of blend a bit. Not sure if that works but it's a matter of opinion.

Is the tongue supposed to be fleshy? If so, you might want to paint over that black line.

I would suggest taking some dark brown or black (or mix a little of both onto a palette), dilute it into a wash, and then go over the bolts on the shield rim. This should gather the wash around the edge of the bolt and make it pop out a bit.

That's about it, I guess.

I really love that model as well. I don't know what it is but it's really great.

Staff especially.

What it is in the sense of 'What makes me think it's so great'. I'm well aware it's a VC Necromancer.

I wanted to, but I'm not sure how you drill into metal pieces. Is there a trick to it or do I need more powerful tools?

>> No.21448866

>>21448373
I use one of these for metal and plastic mans, just take your time with the metal models because if you rush it or choose to make the hole way to big you can risk boring out the sides of the barrels

the pic is pretty small, I can't really make out what that is, but I use an electrical drill with small pins. Is the thing on the picture different from that?

warning turn your sound off, horrible music incoming. But a really good vid of how to drill your barrels with a pin vice.

It's a hand drill, you use your own body energy, making it enviroment-friendly and improving your health at the same time. Guaranteed purchase.

How the hell did he drill it that fast? All my drilling has been futile spinning that doesn't go any deeper than a small crater. If I press harder the drill bit sometimes slips because it's a piece of shit.

clamp the bit down tighter
or, wrap the smooth part in a small bit of friction tape then insert back into pin vise.

First Thousand Sons model. Overall I love the way it turned out, and with some more practice I think I'll have a really good looking army.

Thoughts, tips or suggestions?

Planning on doing a Big Daddy conversion from a deep wars model, and now I'm thinking about having a group of splicers to go up against the big guy.
I'm thinking these zombies from wargamesfactory would make some good splicers with some work, but after working with some of their ashigaru I'm concerned with the assembly. Has anybody worked with this kit? How is it?
Also does anybody have ideas for a little sister model?

Haven't painted a miniature in 10 years and suddenly my younger brother wants to play D&D so decided to give it a try. Not that I ever was any good.
