They're pretty much already black people except they're depicted as white. I think an afro would make it go into racist territory and people would frown upon it.

Clean up your brushstrokes, thin your paints, the skin on the servitor needs touching up, the face as well, try some more variation in the metal tones to give the model some contrast, and yes the checker pattern can be saved, fill out the top row first blue square a bit more, and the top row second white square, so that the edges are crisper.

Sure thing. Basically be more careful with how much paint you're applying to the model, and more importantly, where you're applying it. For example, with the checker pattern, you want to be very careful to keep the pattern looking precise (to an Orky standard though, haha) which requires clean brushstrokes.

What's a good price on paint?

Just got some Army Painter and Vallejo for 2.50 avg per 1/2 ounce bottle. Army painter starter set, full set of ArmyPainter ink washes, and a couple misc vallejo colors I thought I'd need. 50$ on paint for 20 bottles total.

First time, haven't started, but my wallet is feeling empty at the moment. How many 28mm minis do these things last for anyway?

>> No.32542952

>>32542885

AP and Vallejo are about as good as it gets price wise for good paint. Cheaper paint is either gonna be the wrong kind or poor quality pigment in terms of density, how finely ground, etc.

You kind of went overboard though. For example you don't need the AP starter set and every wash, you just need the colors for your armies.

Really, when are you ever going to use a purple wash, for example? Unless you play a purple army.

Just hire a commission painter. You'll also have the benefit of having an extremely beautifully painted army.

I might take my own advice and strip my army and get it commissioned, because I don't have any blends or highlights on them.

Not painting just one uniform army. RPG minis too, just as I need them in campaigns. On top of that, I keep buying single unit boxes of all sorts of wargames just because I like the minis.

Also, does anyone ever sell used paints? I've heard of and seen used armies, but not paints. After shelling out that kind of cash on paints I expected to see used paintsets floating around too. Acrylics never go bad, worst case you need to re-hydrate them.

Badger Minitaire is the cheapest not shit wargame/model-minded acrylic paint on the market. It has the lowest cents to mL ratio and doesn't need to be thinned.

It's not that easy, sadly. I can't really explain it without going into really exact details.

Imagine you are holding your arm straight out in front of you, as still as you can. you are literally tensing every muscle you have in an attempt to do this. Your fingers will likely shake a little, and your arm. It might go a few MM in one direction or another.

Do your research, buy a decent varnish, and read about how to apply it properly.

If varnish does something weird, the best solution most of the time is actually to just spray more (better) varnish on.

Then you can, before you even dream of doing highlight start with thinking on detail work, like boning up the skull, little spots where to put a little metal details and the like, like say, the face vent, behind the knees and soon.

I just got a group of cadians to start my new guard army and i want to make them the Mobile Infantry from Starship Troopers. How should i go about this and what colors would be best to use?

Idk what you would use for the fatigues but the armor should be dawnstone.

I dunno, I usually mix my own.

Luckily everything else has lined up, just land speeders that are naff, the model needs a new kit. Next time I do some green-stuffing (a very rare occurrence) I might patch the hole.

Pick a paint that looks the right colour m8. How do you think the rest of us do it?

Paint on paper first to see how it looks? I hear there's computer programs for designing GW colour schemes though I dunno what it is or where to get it.

With a nice glaze you'd be able to smooth the areas between colors almost effortlessly

Use the top highlight colour or the one before the top highlight?

A very very thinned down mix between the two should do the trick. Don't want to risk mucking it up after all!

That's a huge improvement, it looks great!

Up close you can still vaguely see the different colors but on the TT this will look a million times better than it did before

Crying sure helped the fact that he basically crippled you for life by being a blundering retard, I would have sued him for everything he had

Im going to let her mother ease her into it. I was taught by my dad and hes a harsh task master when it came to it.

>Tfw he made you believe there was only one kind of brush before he showed you fine point and dry brushes

It was suffering, but i got good fast
