No painting thread? Lets change that and show what you recently finished or what you are working on.

Here is my Word Bearers Heldrake, not a great picture though because of not enough light.
Now that all models that got primed are finished I'll start building the next batch of units (bikers from chaos knights and AC havocs).

>> No.22099472

Last thing I painted, started it over a year ago and just never got around to finishing it. One slight problem the main colour I used to paint the armour doesn't exist anymore so i've had to improvise.

>> No.22099528

I like the green! Always trying to work on some "glowing" parts of my models, hard for me to get the edges done though

>> No.22100092

I have a question about paint on primer, I've never used it before but local climate given I can't use spray paint for the next little while.

Do I need to thin paint on primer as I would any other paint?

>> No.22100168

don't use paint on primer

>> No.22100195

Good idea, I'll just not paint my army for 4 months until the weather makes it possible instead.

>> No.22100268


be a faggot about it if you want but >>22100168 is right, paint on primer should only be used for touch ups, not to replace spray primer.

>> No.22100301

I used paint on primer for my first models (those from the 40k ultramarines paint set) and it can work, however using either a spray can or, if you can't do this because of the weather, an airbrush is much faster and gives better results.
If you realy want to do it, yes, you need to thin it a bit but not to the level of thinned down normal paints.

>> No.22100312

on plastics you can try using gesso, but id thin it first.

Painting up my 3000p Necron army.

Never seen one with yellow rods before so I went for that.

Work in progress, the rods are only basecoated and the bbone on the Monolith and facemasks need some more highlights.

Still debating whether I should give the Warriors bone-coloured shoulders.

>> No.22102359


I like what you've done with the crystal on the monolith, but it looks a bit dull (by that I mean not shiny, as opposed to boring), like it's made from stone. Or is that just the camera?

>> No.22102399

That looks classy as fuck

>> No.22102423

More a fan of a glowing necron look but this looks very good.

>> No.22102454


It is dull, I've yet to paint the backside so it isn't varnished yet.

Still figuring out where to place the glares to make it more realistic.




Define "glowing".
Might be something I could add to improve them.

>> No.22102514

I would post but my stuff looks horrible

>> No.22102530


Bought one, ruined it when spraying, GW sent me one for free, managed to save the first one with fine grit sandpaper.

Post anyway, we could give pointers or stroke your ego.

>> No.22102590

I've used gesso in a pinch, its so-so.
Imperial Primer really isn't that bad.
I airbrush all my stuff now and use the Vallejo urethane primer. Which is ok, except for the white, which is too thin.
In my opinion, of course.

>> No.22102591

The last thing I painted was a necromancer 2 months ago. Fucking uni, let me go, I want to paint my little army men alone.

>> No.22102594

well, a bright contrast color like orange / green / blue. With the yellow tone you have it looks good and cohesive in your army but the runes / rods / energy sources don't realy stand out.
Just personal preference though.

You mean like how it blends into the desert/bone colours too much?

Been thinking that myself, I tried blue but didn't like it, they just didn't look evil.

Still, if anyone has an idea I'm all ears.

>> No.22102855


Said the poorfag without an airbrush.

>> No.22102858

dunno why, but im thinking red...

>> No.22102875

bone shoulders would look good i think

>> No.22102879

It's another type of brush. Nothing is "cheating" if it creates the desired effect.

>> No.22102901


Red is a bitch to get right though, bright red either looks pink or orange. And with 500+ light sources in the army I prefer a colour that's easy to get right.

When I shade the yellow rods they'll get a bit more orange though.


Yeah, will probably try it, they look 100% metallic from behind which is a bit boring.

That Predator is painted by hand though.

First 40k, 10-12th miniature

>> No.22103443

I've always wanted a 40K model. I don't play, I just want to build one. Something either Necron or Sister. But then when I think of painting it, I can't bring myself to buy one.

I've never painted anything like this. And the things I have painted turned out awful. I can't bring myself to ruin something so mother fucking over priced. But if I left it unpainted, it'd look stupid. So fuck 40k. When they come out with Babby-Tier "pre painted" models, then I will try one.

Man I really want an Immolator. And a Monolith.

Randomly, what do you guys think of the "dip brush in water" thinning technique?

>> No.22103466

Works for me.

>> No.22103481


Any particular tips on using it? Dip before or after getting paint on the brush? Do I do it every time, or does the brush stay sufficiently wet?

>> No.22103489

Why not start with a 40k paint set?

Never used it. I just drop a bit water on the palet with my color.

>> No.22103498

Painted more guard.. but honestly i've spammed /tg so much with them it isn't worth showing newly painted minis.

I do have a request however. does anyone have a picture of a WWII German tank commander leaning on the hatch of his tank and shouting and pointing backwards? I have an image in my head, pretty sure i've seen the image in picture form.

>> No.22103511

A friend of mine gifted gave me this miniature, I just painted it. But anyway, I guess it could be some kind of large (and a little senseless) magazine. Or something like that.

I really like this one, by the way

And one question: sometimes, I have seen some really well done icicles on miniatures. Any idea about how to make them?

>> No.22103515

What's a 40K paint set?

>> No.22103517


Put the paint on a (wet) pallet and then mix the water with your paint tip into the paint.
And better to start with to few water than to water them down to much.

>> No.22103526

sorry about that "gifted gave"

>> No.22103529

I honestly just do whatever feels right.
Before makes it a bit more thin and runny but a quick dip in water with the paint already on does that less so.
I really just play it by ear.

Quite awesome work, looks like he built them from those Irongut Ogre things. They almost look slaneeshi though.

>> No.22103650

If you are thinning your paints you should buy a bottle of liquitex flow aid (pic related). You can add a few drops to your paint pot and miz and the whole pot will be thinned. You can also add a drop on a pallet and miz in paint. But the best part is this can be used to thin paint to the point that they become washes so you can not make washes in any color you like.

>> No.22103662

grumble, stupid pictures not showing.


>> No.22103718


Ogre bulls with heads from the talos kit (excluding the aberration - that head is a cluster caltrop from the reaver jetbike kit) plus tentacles and a single liquifier gun from the talos kit.

To be honest i've wanted some grotesques in my army for completion sake (I have a large DE army) but fuck paying £15.50 per model for the disco-dancing model GW makes.

However I can't claim the idea for this conversion as my own, I took inspiration from a much better modeller/painter than me.
