Well then allow me to ask a question to try and liven it up. I picked up an Island of Blood boxset for WHFB and I'm looking up what paints I need to have a crack at them.
From what I've read/watched I should be priming them white, then painting metal, fabric and flesh in a (suitable) block colour. After I should go over them in a lighter or darker shade of colour to give it a bit more detail. Am I going down the right path or have I misthought? Bear I mind I don't have much talent or any practice, I just would like them to not look like they had a paint factory explode onto them

>> No.27885133

>>27884884
Are you talking about materials?
The gray is usually plastic, and i guess you're talking about resin with the yellowish white. But resin comes in different colors and brittleness, some are greener, some are whiter, some are more yellow.
Resin is easy to cut, but it's brittle, so it's not as good as plastic for modelling. Plastic can take more bending and return to their basic shape, but are slightly harder to cut, but still miles easier than metal.

First up, thin your paints. They are far too thick all over really. Use many thin layers especially on red and white (The face and the armor).

You need to build up your metals through far more layers going from a non-metallic basecoat to a bronze that is highlighted, scarcely, with burnished gold. Your precision on the eyes looks good from what I can see.

The cloak needs to be basecoated in a brown and then drybrushed. Make sure your brush is completely dry before getting any paint on it for when you are drybrushing. Do >not< water that paint down, I would just get it straight from the pot and rub your brush on a paper towel until very little paint remains on it. Then drybrush. Do this in multiple layers, doing less of a drybrush (spending less time) each new layer as you get brighter.

If you want a cool looking sword you'll need to back over the blue and glaze like a madman. Don't buy into the Lahariam Medium thing that GW has going, just use a CLEAN CUP of CLEAN WATER and water your paint of choice (preferably a slightly darker colour than your brightest colour on the sword) and then glaze it over the blues you have on there. Repeat this several times until you notice a change in the smoothness of the gradient. You can actually do this up from your primer but it will take 30+ layers for the desired effect. Don't do the lightning unless you are confident in painting freehand and highlighting it freehand.

Also have 2 cups for washing your brush out; one for when washing metellics off and one for washing non-mets off. This water is also your 'watering down' water for the respective archetypes as well, so keep the cups clean as well as the water.

>>27879512
Well, then paints is always a good bit of advice, I find getting them to the consistency of full cream milk works well. Take your time and let your coats dry before moving to the next one. Yellow can be pretty tricky to paint, just take it easy and build it up from a light brown or and ochre base colour, Gw paints may get shit on here because of prices but they do make some nice yellows now, there's a host of other brands that are pretty damn good too. I'll say it again, take your time, thin your paints 3 thin coats is better than one thick gluggy coat.

Seconding highlights. Don't drybrush. But don't be afraid to go brighter than you would for 28mm, the smaller the model the greater the contrast needed to pick out the smaller details.

Not a great pic of mine but it's how light I've gone with 15mm stuff in the base/highlight disparity. You can even go up to white on some colours (khaki browns mainly) in pin-prick amounts.

Finecast Razorwing flock was $16 and had lots of feathers missing and required much in the way of cleaning up mold lines. The two Khymerea were alright for $19 as the only bubbles were on the underside that can’t be seen once they are based. Then comes the Reaper Bones minis with several bat swarms and again as many hell hounds at $15 for the lot. With Games Workshop no longer organizing tournaments or competitive play, there’s really no reason to pay over six times as much for an inferior product line and despite Reaper Bones being made of bargain basement rubbery plastic, they at least do a better job at not having bubbles or miscasts on the shelf than Citadel Finecast.

Well, bases themselves are cheap so if you want it to be as riskless as possible, invest in a modelling saw.

Just saw the base to bits, cut off the rest with a knife. Then just make a base and glue the whole thing on. Other methods will likely damage the model or at the very least the paint.

First, thin your paints. Looking pretty thick there.

Second, slow way down. You clearly rushed these models to the tabletop instead of taking your time and making them look good as opposed to just passable. The orange guy in the middle is all kinds of fucked up. Need to go back over him and clean, clean, clean. Lots of colour bleed, poor definition, bad contrasts.

The purple guys on the left and right might look good if you took the time to paint them properly. The scheme is not inherently bad. Also, what exactly did you do to the leftmost model's sword? Christ that looks terrible. There's no breakage in colour. It's just a big somewhat-blue blob.

Each paint of each brand is different. You need to add water until you get the consistency of milk. That usually is 1:1, sometimes 2:1, sometimes 1:2, sometimes more. Search how to thin your paints in google.

If you prime white, then I suggest you apply a thin black paint base on the metal parts. This way the metal will be richer and deep.

He probably plays Delves and Eldar and assembled the medusa option. Or he just picked it up from a friend or from ebay.

I dont know what kind of sand are you using, but the effect you describe usually comes with a too big grane sand.
