There was a kid at one of the Bizarre Bazaars I went to trying to sell a Baneblade. I wish I had pictures of this thing, it has so much glue on it that you could see dried rivers of it running down the sides of the model. He had just glued random weapons all over it, and painted it with no primer. Bulky globs of green paint clinging to this abomination for dear life.

He was also asking more than retail for it.

what Army are you painting? easiest way to start is to take your basic troops and start painting with them, you will be terrible with them for a while, but you should have enough basic guys to eventually improve. After you get better, you can always go back and fix your older models that are terrible too. Also you don't actually have to post pictures of them online you know.

>> No.33009860

Take a deep breath...let it out...
First off, thin your paints. It's good advice for a newbie. A bunch of thin layers will look better than one thick one, and you can clean up any mistakes you make more easily later.
Take your time. There's no hurry - take a few days if you have to. It's your first model, give it some time.
Get a nice thin brush to help clean up the edges when you paint over a raised part or something, or if you make a mistake and hit another part.
I like to paint my pieces separately - I put most of the torso together, but it's not glued to the base, the arms and weapons are still separate and the head is too. This lets me paint all the angles.
I dunno, more experienced fa/tg/uys can help you from there.

>> No.33009877

Thin your paints, don't panic, use a damp palette, don't panic, don't be afraid of starting over, thin your paints (if necessary), don't apply your primer too thickly, two thin coats is better than one thick coat, and for the love of all that you hold holy, don't sneeze while painting.

Also - by nice thin brush, I mean a small brush you can bring to a point. You need a tiny little point on the end to help out with the finer details.
By 'thin your paints', I don't mean pour water in the pot. More experienced painters use a wet palette, but I recommend you just get some paint on your brush (only on the tip, NOT near the metal part), dip it on water, and smooth the excess on a dry palette, with some more water if you think it needs to be thinner.

youtube some simple how to paint minis or beginners guide to painting minis. The smaller the mini the harder it is to paint IMO. and EVERYTHING looks bad if you look close enough. If you think something you are painting looks bad FOR YOU (another thing don't compare everything you do to anyone else's stuff, each model you paint compare it to your last one you did and learn from that) hold it arms length out and if it doesn't look as bad it most likely seems fine.

For starter brushes i'd say get these three types

standard brush, detail/fine detail for small bits, wash brush.

those three alone will take you far for a starter. Also using a wet palate will help tons too since it keeps your paints fresher longer. Never paint directly from the 'pot'. if you are painting a small area load up your brush and twitch it inbetween your thumb and forfinger as you pull away from the paint to strain it some so the paint won't leak everywhere. If you still think thats to much paint a gentle wipe or a dab on a paper towel will fix it.

There is no such thing as to little paint, you can always go back and add another layer. Too much paint is a bigger problem because you can't remove it as easily.

For painting details and the like paint the deepest parts of the model first, if you do them last all it takes is a simple twitch in the hand or cat jumping on the table or act of god to ruin a part of the model.

You won't be on top of a mountain until you take the first step. Just like in life don't judge against anyone else but yourself. Look at other people's models and think about how they did a design or what steps would it take to do "x".

Frigates are good for this purpose, but testing colour schemes on cruisers is also fine. I've redone my KOB fleet twice overall and done multiple tests on some cruisers, they've very good models as the large areas don't suffer badly from repeated paints.

You'll eventually get a bucket of frigates so don't worry about them.

Also, the models are resin so they'll need a propper scrubbing in warm water to get the oily crap off them, otherwise the paint can chip off.

Painting tips overall, Use the same paints on them as you would GW.
Give them a spray of chaos black equivalent, and spray the fiddly bits of the models (chimneys, odd recesses) first so you get the best coverage.

The surface of the models is kind of grainey so even very light coats stick well to them, very forgiving.

You'll need the usual 4 brushes, fine detail, general purpose fine-ish brush, "tank brush" and a drybrush of a sort.

Browsing the DW forums is also a great place to draw inspiration, and posting your WIPs here on /tg/ is a great way to get help and feedback on your work.

I sold my first 2nd ed army well over a decade and half ago, didn't paint anything in between that and now. I don't remember how shit my shittiest model from that period was, but the first ones were hand primed. Then I tried this (for where I lived anyway) very new concept of spray priming minis, which gave them comparatively incredibly smooth priming, and I felt like I had unlocked God mode for painting. It basicly made me become obessed with having thin paints, so maybe I was a hipster "thin your paints guy".

At the beginning I painted my Orks without primer, with neon green skin, blue backpacks, purple pants and red clothing/helmets, leaving the plastic as it is on the choppas.

Then I walked in a GW shop (I bought my first models at a random store) and the owner taught me how to paint properly, and I soon primered and recolored those ridiculous Boyz.

Always soak your stuff in warm water first, get it nice and clean of dust and all that crap.

Thinning your paints is important, lest you look like some of those space marines up there. It has to color, yes, but you also don't want it thick enough to hide those little details. Better by far to have to do 2-3 layers of very very thin paint than to be overdone in one.

Fine motor skill mastery will do that, along with focus and patience.

The paint scheme isn't great, but those wings are metal as fuck.

As a kid i had the opposite problem to all noobs, my painting was always too thin.

No, there isn't. However, many hobbyists see the painting aspect as equal to the gaming aspect and will decline a game against an army of unpainted models. Similarly, many tournaments REQUIRE that your models be painted for entry. They don't have to be WELL painted, but there must be evidence of effort.

Yeah, what's with the blue that seems to be underneath all of the left one's paint?

Fukken MOLD LINES, looks pretty good except for that and the barrels, though the brown could use a dark brown wash and then a highlight with lighter brown

My 12 year old attempt at a shade i think. I went for the same colour scheme the second time.
