>> No.29487560

I'll start. Broadside in custom scheme. The arms are being painted seperately since I needed some bits to convert them/so I can paint the torso and legs easier. The 'purple' lenses defenitely need some work.

Undercoat Rakarth flesh a few thin coats to get a solid color. Then a fairly heavy wash of Agrax Earthshade. Layer back over except for the recesses with Rakarth flesh, then I layered up to Pallid Wych flesh (2:1, 1:1 1:2 solid) with a bit of white on the highest edges.

Oh yeah, dude. Legion of the damned are very easily converted. If you want to know how I'd go about making a tactical squad look the part this is how I'd do it:

Start by aquiring some skeleton bits, trade with a friend or someone at your local game store, there should be at least somone who'd be down for it. Having aquiring you bits sort them out and compare them to your marine squad and decide what would look good on where(skull faces grated to helms for example). Once you've gotten a feel for what looks cool where carefully start cutting down various bones to glue down on the various armour plate sections tou've chosen, make sure you have a fresh and sharp blade because you really don't want to do this with anything less. Carefully now with your knife cut in half the skellington bits, for example you may be wanting to embelish a leg with bones, and glue. I don't know how much of a help this was, if at all, but as long as you plan ahead, take your time and make sure you have fresh blades(this is most impprtant, really) then you can pull this off easily.

I wish I coild explain myself better, I'm better at showing than telling when it comes this sort of work.

I'm afraid not, mate. I wrote that off the top of my head. I've not tried to convert damned legionnaries of my own before, I bought a bunch of the new metals when they came out years ago.

After nothing but nids and necrons for over 2 years painting marines is hard. Even if getting paid to do so

>> No.29492976


Marines are hard because tiny flat surfaces.

Tyranids are easy because so many ribs, just wash them. And the flat carapace surface is so huge for freehand or blending or other patterns.

All armies are equally difficult to paint, it just depends on what you're used to. Marines aren't any easier to paint than anything else, except maybe tactical marines because they're so undetailed.

You mean the painted base was to make it look better?
Still looks rather nifty, don't you agree?

>> No.29528814

I agree that washes are fucking amazing and require very little effort, but I still think the model in the picture has been worked on after the strong tone.
From what I've seen, strong tone does a little too much shading and needs to be cleaned up with some highlights.

Honestly, it doesn't look like its been touched up after the wash. It's the same effect washing had on my minis, only better because I used watered down paint and too much of it.

Hit them with a hammer. You can't loot something without breaking it a little, after all.

Hammer is probably too strong. Just going to buzzsaw that shit off.

I have the grot gunner cockpit from my dakkajet lying around, should try slapping that on.

How do I get more rivets. I've been using those little buds from sprues, but they're kinda big, I want smaller ones aswell.

Today I primed him black with a spray that does not eat the polystyrene. I have no experience painting vehicles or such a huge model. Could somebody please give me some tips or guidelines on how to approach this paint job.

Also I made a mistake in not properly preparing this model before starting to glue bitz to it and priming it, so now there a little cavities on some parts of the polystyrene. Should I incorporate these into the painting ( weathering, combat damage), fix these now with green stuff / glue or try to paint these parts thicker?

tl;dr How to paint a Stompa?

Quick question for you guys, /tg/. I've never been much of a painter. I'm still working on thinning my paints properly. I'm about to start painting my necrons. I was thinking of a black and gold scheme, but I have no idea if it would look good, or even what ratio I should go. More black? More gold?

Thoughts? I was originally going to do a winter scheme, but I decided I was sick of painting light colors. Plus white is a pain in the ass.

If you're still around:
ConversionFanboy and RecalcitrantDaze are two blogs you should definitely check out for inspiration. Tons of Orky conversion goodness in there.

For rivets (and everything else really), plasticard. Nuts, bolts, rivets and such can be done in two ways: either a rod (comes in both round and hex, multiple diameters, gives nice variety) or just sheet plasticard and a hole punch.

Oh, and don't be afraid to fuck up, because you can't. That's Ork tech we're talking. If you break something off by accident, just glue it back in and add some plasticard, call it Ork fixinz.

and I've got yet another question: Since I like how the LotD look, the bone armor and all, and since I like making my own chapters as well, I could paint them Red or a darker green without worry, right?

Problem is, I dunno how that would look. so, does anyone have any images with LotD that are colored differently?

Just use the stuff if you want to find out, yes if you apply too much then you will have to clean it up but if you apply a thin layer then you should be fine, I have used this stuff on a few miniatures and I can tell you on flesh it is really good .

Aquarium sand man. Buy some white sand. Super glue the base and dip the base inside the sand. Don't forget to paint the base beforehand in whatever color you are planning to paint the sand.


I didn't. I never primed models beforehand (metal models didn't need them and plastic models I airbrushed with their primary color anyways). Resin doesn't really like paint I tell you what.

I know... I'm currently talking to GW about getting some replacements.

I hate finecast.

Even the Calgar I got had a bunch of problems and it just isn't as smooth as plastic.

Does primer clump more on resin than plastic? Or is it just coincidence that a brand new can wasn't that smooth on calgar.

Really? I found red easier, maybe it's because I've done it for so long...

Darker colors have always been easier for me. My first army was black templars (back when they still used armagedon book for their army list) and my first models turned out just like the ones on the box. You should have seen my first attempt at painting blood angels. Complete fucking disaster. And I used enemals too, which is really hard to paint with a brush since the paint thinner you have to use can dissolve the lower layer you are painting on. Our first flgs didn't supply Citadel paints so I made do with the paints I already had that I used to paint tanks and planes.
I just stripped the paint from my first 15 space marines that I painted along with some assault marines and break fluid barely did the job. Don't use anything other than acrylics people.

I'm new to diorama type building and I have a question. As I am on a budget and don't want to pay for fine grassy flock, for grassy terrain you think I could do something like mix glue, water, and cat litter, spread it over my base, and paint the grainy surface to look like grass when it dires? Or would that come out looking terrible? I'd experiment with it first but thought I'd ask before I got anything mixed.

>> No.29549458

looks good.

here's my attempt at NMM

>> No.29549582

Well how many vistas of grainy grass with blue lumps do you see? Grass is about the appearance of the terrain, you can tell something is grass because it's varied green and yellow shades and it stands up in tufts.

If you're looking to practice the layout of dioramas and the overall spacings then by all means practice with green sand. However considering that the main characteristic of a diorama is how it looks, green sand pretending to be grass isn't going to help.
