So, I was able to get rid of the glue with my ultrasonic cleaner and simple green, at least most of it.

if you think you'd rather have them the same or different, it's your choice. Glued might be easier to handle when you're painting it and could prevent the paint from wearing off. It really doesn't matter much in the end.

The flesh tones look good, but try touching up the Leather and Blades.

Base the leather in Rhinox Hide, then highlight the edges with some XV-88. Dry brushing the XV-88 will also look decent instead.

As for the metal Base with Tin bitz. Mix that with Boltgun 50/50 dry brush the edged bit on yer choppaz. Then highlight the tips of the blade so it looks sharpened.

Looks snazzy when ya do it right.

Reading the last thread, I saw >>34483377 say something about 3-color basecoats helping with tough colors, like red and yellow. Ended up watching the videos he was talking about, too, and realized he was referring to airbrushes when basecoating.

Now, I'm a broke motherfucker for a while (fucking hospital bills), and don't have an airbrush to do that with. I don't particularly foresee too much difficulty replicating the technique with spray primer, barring the whole white step (which could be done by hand).

Has anyone done something similar, and if so, is there anything I'd need to worry about that I haven't thought of?

How many of you skip priming your models altogether?

I was talking with a friend of mine the other day who's one of the better painters in my store, and I was kind of shocked when he said he doesn't even bother priming his models and just goes straight to a strong basecoat. But it did make some sense; we live in the tropics, where the humidity never drops below 70%. I'm kind of curious if maybe I should do the same, since I've had nothing but bad experiences with my primers ever since I moved here.

Sylvania is said to be covered in swamps. So marshland does work with the empire theme too. Since Sylvania is the land of the Undead you could probably just go with undead lizardmen if you are dead set on using a carnosaur (which is insane btw. just to put it on a base).

First wip post since i finally got around to getting the paints and two brushes yesterday! I am using the Citadel paint instruction from some fancy PDF file. It did do a conversion of colors to Vallejo Game since the dropper sounded like a god send. I got 11 paints in total and the only thing i ended up missing was red.. oh well. Also made a wet pallet which makes me feel like a pro.

I am happy with my first attempt, but ran into the problem of not knowing how i wanted to color some aspects. So please provide some cool suggestions! General feedback on the paint job is welcome. I thin with distilled water, expect for the gold and leadbelcher since those didn't react to well with the water.

I was thinking the following:
Sword: Add some green+white highlight power arcs
Left shoulder pads: Paint white Omega's
Right shoulder pads: color the bone khaki and blackwash.
Belt buckle: ? khaki and wash?
Heads: White + green eyes
>>white is going to be a bitch right?

Any tips on how i can make a nice base? I only have household stuff and i will be damned if i need to buys some expensive GW crap. I live in the Netherlands so please don't suggest Wallmart.

Make the eyes red, if you're going for traditional ultramarine. I prefer metallic belt buckles, but that's just me. For white, Start with grey, drybrush light grey, highlight with white. Either blacken or make metallic the "soft armor" (the ribbed stuff around the joints like the back of the knees.)

Maybe I'm just slow, but those are still a thing. So you don't need for them to wish to be there. They just have the same stats as all other shotguns.

Close those slotta bases and sand them. When that has dried you can paint and base them. Will give them the finished look. If you like the old school look you could also add danger stripes on the powerfists in yellow and black.

It might. The old minis also had campaign markings. Unless they changed the decals since I got my last box of Marines they are still on there. You could try those too for some additional 2nd edition flavor.
Though a basic collection of paints are really not something your money is wasted on. They speed your painting up and make it much more comfortable if you have your favorite shades readily available.
Try Vallejo instead of Citadel though. More paint in the posts, dropper bottles, which means less waste and easier to keep an eye on paint ratios and cheaper too.

>but i am afraid of fcking up the omegas.
They're not omegas silly. They'd have to be upside down to be omegas.
Seriously though freehanding is the one thing that probably helped my painting increase most in the beginning. Painted 50+ shoulder pads with custom iconography for my second army and was a decent painter after that.

It's a rapper apparently. Never heard of him before.
But we used to say that stuff as kids.
Like the rhymes about the forenames.

>Alle Kinder sitzen im Kreis um das Feuer, außer Brigitte, die sitzt in der Mitte.
>Alle Kinder gehen aus dem Kino, außer Abdul, der hängt im Klappstuhl.
>Alle Kinder gehen über die Straße, außer Rolf, der klebt am Golf.
and so on and so forth.

Ich meinte damit, dass DU ein reines Reimemonster bist. Ironisch natürlich, weil Badewanne sich so selten gut auf Soße reimt.

It is pre shaded. The camera doesn't really pick it up to well. The gradient on the camo is quite subtle.

See your point though. Maybe too subtle. Re-shaded with watery black just now.

You know I'm doing many more of these? I like my elysians.

the problem with shading AFTER the camo is just that, the camo is covered up.

but it looks better. even though try to keep it a little bit more subtle.

Oh, I see.
They don't look half bad. I mean the models, you might want to either A) thin your paints a bit more or B) use a wash or C) both.
How long was the delivery time?

>> No.34534724

>>34533806
yoymart and taobao are marketplaces
You can order via them and pay extra for their service.
Or you can order directly from the Chinaman.
They make good quality copies. I'd say if you order 10 x 1 model from FW and 10 x 1 from Chinaman, Chinaman will have 9 flawless models and 1 "ok" while with FW you'll get maybe 7 flawless, 2 "ok" and 1 FUBAR.

Can't say anything about GW copies, though.

The real Chinaman shops are:
lowpricewarhammer.com (Zanchui)
thebitskingdom.com (CoolCastOrNot/CCON)

I see. yeah, I've been recently trying to remove myself from thin-your-paints-tier painting skills but it's hard to stay motivated. Delivery times were 1-3 weeks for my stuff but i've heard of it taking longer than that for some.
